first came across the eight circuit or
"8 brain model" while reading Robert Anton Wilson's
The Illuminati Papers. Wilson had in turn credited
Timothy Leary, Ph.D. for creating this model/tool for
human nervous system. There is
that suggests Leary received this information in the form of
an obscure manuscript, penned by a Tantric Yoga Master in
India, from a certain "Professor Adams." Leary's
brilliance was in
the integration of the Eastern Hindu and
Tantric teachings with
Western Psychology and Psychedelic inner exploration.
The eight-circuit model of consciousness is not only a system used for
understanding the human nervous system, it is a tool used to accelerate
human consciousness. Understanding and use of this model assumes
that the mind/brain consists of the entire nervous, lymph and
circulatory system within the earthling body. Physiological, emotional and
psychic attributes are contained within this
eight subtle spiraling wheels of energy, one above the other, tethered by a
translucent chord of life-force or “chi” suspended and flowing through your
body. This energy nexus extends hierarchically upward from the base of your
spine, to the top of your scull. Each individual circuit represents a major
behavior mode or center of consciousness, from basic survival instinct to
extra-sensory perception and beyond. The lower circuits
model mundane human behaviors, while the higher circuits
model a framework that transcends time and space.
important to realize that this transcendence of space/time is
available to all earthlings at any moment by means of
As suggested above, each of the eight circuits may be visualized
as corresponding to the "Chakra"
system taught by Hindu schools of thought.
Circuit one through seven line up with the seven chakras
localized in the earthling body. Circuit one equates to the
"Muladhara" or base chakra, and so on. Although
each circuit does not
correspond exactly with the
eastern teachings for each chakra, the analogy is a useful
one for locating each of the first seven circuits within the
earthling body. Circuit eight is non-local.
Upon reflection, the notion of the eighth circuit
(eighth brain) being non-local, is quite a phenomenal proposition. The
eighth circuit in effect becomes the vehicle of transmission with
universe. It is the link or means (matrix)
whereby universe and the
Individual and universe form a partnership that
co-experiences existence. This partnership is communicated through
means, which from the
perspective of the first four circuits, or "normal
awareness" seems to defy logic.
Each circuit has a three phase cycle of development:
As we shall see, this framework is an invaluable
artifact in the pursuit of mastering the consciousness hacking system of Tek-Gnostics.
And so without further adieu, on to the eight circuit model...

Circuits one through Four
psychologic/psychedelic model, stages of psychological
development are represented as nodes of energy, or circuits
(chakras). As the earthling baby
develops, each circuit becomes active in succession.
Circuits one through four are inherent in every earthling
and function automatically according to the DNA
blueprint. They are "temporal" in the
sense that they are consensual to all earthlings and obey
the agreed upon laws of physics. Each circuit activates
or is activated by a basic stage of development. Circuit
one at birth... Circuit two as the toddler begins to
walk... Circuit three as the child develops speech... And
circuit four at puberty.
Infant - Nourishment survival Brain.
Imprinted on Mother.
After the incredible journey
of being born, the earthling baby has earned the bliss of
cuddling in his/her mothers arms. Automated survival
instincts of suckling and clinging to mother's breast
activate. This reality is primarily 2-Dimentional, wherein
the babies surroundings are less important beyond being
loved, safe and warm.
Toddler - Locomotion political Brain.
When a toddler gets his/her
wheels (learns to walk), he/she becomes a full fledged member
of the clan. Circuit two activates mastery of one's dexterity
and the manipulation (both physically and politically) of
one's surroundings. The phenomena known as the terrible
twos is a result of circuit two development.
conceptual Brain. 4-D (time)
As the child masters
locomotion and politics, circuit three activates the ability
to conceptualize and use tools/artifacts. The most intricate
and powerful artifact is language. The ability to communicate
in a sophisticated manner allows access to the clan's
available knowledge. Peer group activity becomes the
paramount re-enforcement signal. Mastery of the concept of
time allows the ability to reflect and predict.
Adolescent - Puberty and
sexual-emotional Brain. (Heart)
Circuit four is triggered
through hormonal activation. These emotion-chemicals mutate
the body into the adult form. As the earthling body
transforms, alarming and dramatic emotional changes occur.
Not to worry... These physical and emotional outbursts are
actually quite normal. They are necessary exercises in
opening the fourth or "Heart" circuit.
In order to access the

Circuits Five through Eight
If circuits one through four
are considered normal developmental stages... circuits five
through eight may be considered paranormal stages of true-human
development. As the earthling enters
adulthood, the potential for the activation of circuits
five through eight become increasingly available. Additionally, these circuits are
of an increasingly transcendental nature. Where circuits
one through four are said to be analytical in nature,
circuits five through eight are intuitive and psychedelic

through eight, are examined in our advanced program.
Imprinted by peak
experiences. Non-ordinary reality... Being "High"
Circuit five is
activated by repeated and consistent application of
various highly sophisticated technologies developed by
ancient earthling initiates. These practices take many
forms to appeal to a wide audience. Athletics, Drama,
Music are a few examples of such technologies, as well as the traditional
practice of Meditation. As an earthling
excels in any of these yogas, they achieve a state of
concentration and skill that produces an ecstatic or euphoric
sensation within the body/mind. The resulting elevated sense
of well being and comprehension (being high) insures repeated
Note: There are certain entheogenic shortcuts or yogas that have been used since
antiquity, but the use of such shortcuts shall not be addressed here.
- Thinking about
thinking. Re-programming old imprints. Reality selection.
Circuit six is associated with
so called psi phenomena such as pre-cognition and telepathic
ability. Modern physics describes all matter as vibratory in
nature. In interpersonal communication, the implementation of
circuit six is perceived by earthlings as "picking up on
the vibes" of another individual. In the old days, we
used to call this being in tune with one's bio-rhythms.
The implementation phase of
circuit six may be thought of as creative reality selection
or meta-programming as described Dr. John C. Lilly, M.D. in
his book "Programming and Metaprogramming in the Human
Biocomputer." The ability to redesign one's reality is
known as the Art of Magick in certain circles (no pun
intended). The basic concept is that if one has focus and
technique, one can re-define the way one sees and interacts
Collective unconscious Brain
Here is where we tap into the
earthling collective... past, present and future. Circuit
seven is the collective unconscious mind/brain of Dr. Carl
Jung. It is believed by science that all of humanity's
evolutionary history is archived within the double helix of
our DNA. This information may be accessed through circuit
seven activation. Reincarnation and past life regression may
be alternative interpretations of aspects of a fully
functional circuit seven.
Returning to the chakra
analogy, circuit seven is analogous to the Sahasrara,
or crown chakra... the thousand
petaled lotus flower. This energy vortex is the highest
circuit within the earthling body. This circuit is in direct
communication with universe, which is visualized as a eighth
circuit elevated above the earthling's head.
- Non local access
to universal matrix.
Contact. The ability for earthlings to be in
communication with non-local (other worldly) intelligence has
been recorded since the dawn of time. Out of body experience,
cosmic consciousness, communion... there are many
interpretations. One of the greatest and least offensive
verbs used to describe this phenomena is inspiration.
To be inspired is arguably the very basis for all human
creativity and cultural development.
It is important to note that although the
eight circuits are described above as being activated
sequentially, any or all circuits may be activated at any
time. Each earthling is unique, as is each earthling's life
experiences. Anything can happen. Trauma, sever physical
exertion, as well as natural tendencies may spontaneously
trigger any circuit. That's just the way life is.
