Dr. John C. Lilly: Center of the Cyclone

From (my new favorite blog)
In this new-paradigm classic of scientific research, Dr. John C. Lilly shares his ground-breaking theory of the interaction between the mind and the brain. Using his personal experiments in solitude, isolation, and confinement, he combines these states with LSD, mysticism, and other catalysts to gain a new understanding into the inner spaces of the human consciousness. Dr. Lilly details his experiences in researching the far-out spaces and demonstrates how he programs such spaces and experiences through his method of self-metaprogramming. Displaying a frankness that is refreshingly objective, The Center of the Cyclone offers a rational scientific explanation of how the mind works in those special states of consciousness. Using Gurdjieff's Vibration Numbers which can be compared to Leary's 8 Circuit Model, Dr. Lilly helps us nagivate inner space. "In the province of the mind, what is believed to be true is true or becomes true, within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the province of the mind, there are no limits."
