from Exo-Psychology by Dr. Timothy Leary Ph.D

This information presents a neurogenetic ontology - a theory of eight levels of reality and their interaction.

All realities are neurological-patterns of impulses received, stored and transmitted by neural structures. Consciousness is defined as energy received by structure. Intelligence is defined as energy transmitted by structure. For the human being the structures are neural circuits and their anatomical connections. Please re-read the last three sentences.

For thousands of years ontologists have speculated futilely about the nature of reality. There can be no more room for debate. Surely the nervous system determines every aspect of human reality. What is "real" is what is registered by nerve endings, coded in neural memory banks, and transmitted by nerve fibers.

The ontological question is so easily resolved we wonder why there was ever any confusion. After all, the circulation of the blood was understood four centuries ago. The structure of the nervous system, the fibrous wiring of the sense organs, and the connections to the brain are so anatomically obvious that one is puzzled at the inability of earlier anatomists and physiologists to understand that the nervous system is the seat of consciousness and thus the solution to many ontological questions that had vexed and confused man's thinking. We face here, perhaps, another contrived, deliberate stupidity, a protective myopia, a species taboo which shrouds attempts to explain consciousness and intelligence-expanding processes. The facts about the nervous system are too robot embarassing, too challenging to larval theological and political systems. It is just too early on the evolutionary clock for the species to face the neurological facts, for the robots to decipher their own circuitry.

Four-brained humans cannot accept a scientific neurogenetic ontology which places reality within the changing flux of the nervous system and not in the comforting solidity of the imprinted-conditioned reality-islands. "Man the Machine" is an unbearable concept to those who are not ready to mutate beyond the lower, robot circuits.

One cannot evolve from one's robothood until one realizes how totally one has been robotized. A succinct presentation of this point will be found in Gurdjieff's comments on mechanization quoted by Ouspensky: In Search of the Miraculous.
