Another take on Timothy Leary's 8 circuit model, complete with detailed instructions on how to activate or modify each circuit (without the use of pharmacological aids ;p). Only criticism is that as mentioned the work is highly derivative of works by others.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Fergus Harlow on 25 Aug. 2006
Format: Paperback
Facilitating greater communication between right and left hemispheres of the brain, while at the same time assisting in the expansion of their creative development, this is a rip-roaring rollercoaster through the very essence of what makes us human, taking us high on the edge of our devilishly crafted structures and showing us a glimpse of what lies beyond.

This book is like horseradish sauce to my surloin steak, cranberry to my vodka, and a skeleton key to the limitless expression of the multiple personalities i have for so long tried to keep locked in the basement.

Taking as its foundation Timothy Learys 8 circuit model of the brain, a psychological model based on the law of octaves, it explores the connections between mind, body and the universe (our environment), utilising the ancient technologies and devices inherent in tarot, alchemy and the Hindu Chakra system in order to discover a deeper sense of freedom and more creative ways of interACTing with our world.

Its a no non-sense, uncensored exploration through deep space, covering ground usually reserved for the intellectual elites of NASA and James Bond. Buy it.

I got this book a long time ago, Antero Alli is a very clever man. although most of what he tells you can be found in other books he's put's it all together so well its amaizing. I'f your trying to start a path of enlightenment, this book makes a good start... as long as you dont mind the odd big word.. :)

Magic theatre: Not For Everybody 17 Jan. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Not exactly a self help book or a metaphysical treatise, Angel Tech is (in its own words), "a survival manual for fallen angels who are through with their frozen responses to the nightmares around us." Several sentences later, it instructs us to: "fly higher, plant both feet firmly in the ground... ground." The title is somewhat deceptive, also, because Angel Tech isn't about angels per se; at least not the kind painted by artists and described in the bible. To once again quote the text, "An angel is a being of Light. Tech comes from techne, meaning art or skill. Angel Tech is the Art of Being Light... We are in essence, beings of light."
Alli has taken it upon himself to redefine common terminology as well as make up words of his own to describe his psychic journey. This journey traverses through the Law of Octaves and Overtones translated into eight evolving functions of One Intelligence. Its destination is the awesome task of Intelligence Increase. The format of the law of eights is as old as the Sufi Mystery Schools and vigorous enough to attract Gurdjieff himself to wrestle with. More recently, the rascal guru Timothy Leary picked it up and wrote his opus, Exo Psychology (also out of print), one of the source books for Angel Tech. What sets Angel Tech apart from other interpretations of this eightfold system is its comedic brilliance and some hysterically wicked illustrations. Also conspicuously absent is the kind of dogma that almost always accompanies subject matter like this. (The author constantly reminds us that the book is a map and not the territory itself, and that we, the readers, must make our own maps as fast as we absorb information in order to minimize psychic constipation.)
This book is not for everybody. Consider the section entitled Karma Mechanics which is "a course of study best suited for self-realizing robots." Who's going to admit to their robot hood? Gurdjieff and his kind certainly did but not without a lot of work. Further into this section is another called Mechanical Problems which, with painstaking detail, explores the symptoms, causes and necessary adjustments for "robots run amok"... in laymen's terms, the process of fixing broken people. Despite the rather dense reading in this section, Alli did manage to pull me through with his humor, which at times, is ruthless. For the uninitiated neophyte, Fred Mertz (remember, from the I love Lucy show?) has resurrected to the spiritual status of Bodhisattva for the purpose of transmitting his compassion through the "neuroelectronic medium of television in the reruns..." If Fred Mertz is a New Age Avatar, then I'm the pope. And in some parallel universe, I probably am.
Sometimes, this book rides the edge between redundancy and instructive repetition with the hopes of driving its point home. This point seems to be self-responsibility and the need to define oneself or be defined by others. Alli takes for granted that readers already understand that they create their own reality, so there's not much schooling on this (read the Seth books). It is, perhaps, for this reason that the audience for Angel Tech will remain limited to those currently designing their own program. In this way, Angel Tech is even elitist. It refuses to try and reach everybody. However, the people it will touch will be richer for it due to Alli's lack of compromise. It's not an entirely inaccessible book yet it's based on a rather radical assumption. It fails to recognize the split between Lower and Higher Selves that most metaphysical books all but deify. My guess is that Alli is something of an anarchist who found his way into the system. His passion for annihilating hierarchy for the purpose of demystifying higher intelligence is hard to ignore.

A field guide for shattering paradigms. 16 April 2006
By Philippe Vermeersch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book rocked my world as much as RAW did when I first started reading him. There seem to be only three scholars of the 8 Circuit Model: Timothy Leary, Robert Anton Wilson and Antero Alli. While the former provided me with the theoretical basics, it was the first time I came across the practical exercizes. Alli mainly focuses on the experience for his readers, so you do not need any theoretical background nor do you need to believe anything. Don't expect any new age mumbo-jumbo: this book is about trying things out for yourself and note what happens. The only need for things to happen is commitment. And if the 8CM is unknown to you, rest assured that you'll find many connections with kabballah, chakras, I King, Alchemy, Tarot, astrology, etc. whatever your current paradigm is; but also with quantum theory, general semantics etc.

The more I read into this book, the more I discover how this model works out for me as a meta-map for other systems.

One of my top ten books in my library.

This book is an amazing guide into ritual. 14 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this book to perform the first ritual I ever did. Armed only with the exercises in this book I successfully manifested Deity in a circle. It was a beautiful and transformative experience. This book is excellent for focusing and directing intent. I highly recommend it.

A delightfully intelligent and funny adventure in reality 24 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Antero Alli sums up the key points of modern paganism and shamanism interlacing it with beautifully worded excursions into psychology and sociology of everyday life. All the thoughts that I would quietly have to myself, not daring to ask or discuss them with anyone else -- these are discussed at length in the book. Every chapter is a small revelation. The topics are presented so lightly and elegantly that I read through it effortlessly, realising at the end that this book has as much fundamentals as the Bible, the difference being only in size and language. The after-effect has been tremendous -- at my job, my personal life, my music (I am a musician), and even my health. Thank you!

Did for my head what Jamie Oliver did for school dinners 25 Aug. 2006
By Mr. F. R. Harlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Facilitating greater communication between right and left hemispheres of the brain, while at the same time assisting in the expansion of their creative development, this is a rip-roaring rollercoaster through the very essence of what makes us human, taking us high on the edge of our devilishly crafted structures - the initial feeling of peril being replace, or perhaps refined, into wicked-dangerous-fun - and showing us a glimpse of what lies beyond.

This book is like horseradish sauce to my surloin steak, cranberry to my vodka, and a skeleton key to the limitless expression of the multiple personalities i have for so long tried to keep locked in the basement.

Taking as its foundation Timothy Learys 8 circuit model of the brain, a psychological model based on the law of octaves, it explores the connections between mind, body and the universe (our environment), utilising the ancient technologies and devices inherent in tarot, alchemy, the Hindu Chakra body and other systems in order to discover a deeper sense of freedom and more creative ways of interACTing with our world.

Its a no non-sense, uncensored exploration through deep space, covering ground usually reserved for the intellectual elites of NASA and James Bond.

Included in these simple, de-gargoned instructions for crafting your own reality and maintaining your spaceship are enlightening excercises and lots of fun pictures. One point I have to make is that Antero has crafted this book like a chef, taking all the readily available ingredients (such as well known models of the psyche) and preparing them with experience, skill and a passion for fine dining. Rather than a collection of old techniques regurgitated for a quick profit, it is an exquisite 8 course meal served at the five star hotel of your mind.
