This week we delve back into the realm of reality hacking with our guest Antero Alli.
Antero has been involved in the study of the 8 circuit model of consciousness for many years now, and has authored several books on the subject.
Antero is also involved in a unique consciousness experiment called ‘Paratheatre’, in which initiates and researchers experiment, and more importantly, experience consciousness change.
We discuss: The 8 circuit model of consciousness, Timothy Leary, Paratheatre, the difference between reading about a ritual and actually experiencing it, and much more.
