From his earliest days as a young psychologist, Timothy Leary was obsessed with the "scientizing" of internal experiences-often called psychological, spiritual, mystical, visionary, subjective, mental, sensory, esthetic-erotic, emotional and religious. Virtually all of Leary's work was focused on demystifying the software of human experience. He used the time honored scientific tool of objectifying-relating external changes to changes in the brain.
CHANGE YOUR BRAIN follows Leary in his purpose to increase our freedom and to give the Human Singularity-as he called the individual-power over our internal experiences. In his words, Leary accomplished this feat by "working the tissue frontiers, the membrane borders where the external traffics with the internal; where the outside world interfaces the antennae of the nervous system."
Early on Leary discovered the importance of the brain-change-drug option. From middle-class Valium addicts, to 'reward-yourself-with-a-light-beer-after-work' drinkers to potheads, millions of American have caught on that brain function can be changed by one simple behavior-putting a specified chemical into your body.
*Change your Brain.
*The Brain is the key.
*The Brain is the source.
*Everything that humans do is Neuroecology.
*Timothy Leary "observed the effect of those who tripped and those who did not-and the collision between the two swarms." Change Your Brain describes Leary's professional odyssey from a psychedelic conference in Copenhagen to being thrown out of Harvard and subjected to the "Sernmetwels Treatment." A fascinating tale.
