When I apply critical thinking to some of the statements in this book I find them difficult to confirm as true. For example, "Exopsychology views human destiny in terms of an evolving nervous system, designed by DNA intelligence which uses planets as temporary nesting sites in an interstellar migratory process, destined to extend lifespan/life-scope to become symbiotic transceivers of quantum physical conditions." How would someone know this? How would someone come to these conclusions? How woul ...more

In a similar vein as Leary's other books

A shamelessly breathtaking prediction for the evolution of life. Leary was characteristically over-optimistic at the timescale for humanity's evolution past our present stage, but it's interesting matching his ideas to the current technological world rather than our neurological activities.

Many years ago my friend and housemate, Dan, had borrowed this book. I peaked into it dabbled through and it blew my fucking mind. Mostly about Leary's 8-circuit model/map of consciousness. Even if he's off the mark this book is breathtaking in the imagination department alone

Leary's S.P.A.C.E. program is fascinating. His fans make him seem less well-considered than his writing.

Think about it..... If you know anything more about this guy, other then that he was a Psychologist, who advocated for Acid, and Hippie Counterculture...

I smile every time, i read a few pages....!... <3

This is generally considered his masterpiece - and due to the innovations in it - I agree. However, Leary frequently finds himself doing the salesman game even to himself and his lack of understanding of the physical sciences undermines himself. Still worth reading though.

Timothy Francis Leary was an American writer, psychologist, futurist, modern pioneer and advocate of psychedelic drug research and use, and one of the first people whose remains have been sent into space. An icon of 1960s counterculture, Leary is most famous as a proponent of the therapeutic and spiritual benefits of LSD. He coined and popularized the catch phrase "Turn on, tune in, drop out."
