Imagine trying to make sense of Timothy Leary's eight neurological circuits, G.I. Gurdjieff's self-observations exercises, Alfred Korzybski's general semantics, Aleister Crowley's magical theorems, and the several disciplines of Yoga; not to mention Christian Science, relativity, quantum mechanics and many other approaches to understanding the world around us. That is exactly what Wilson does in "Prometheus Rising". In short, it is a book about how the human mind works and what you can do to make the most of yours. Readers have been known to get angry, cry, laugh, and even change their entire lives. Practical techniques to break free of your "reality tunnels".… (más)

This book does a good job of presenting the circuits operating in the brain, based on Timothy Leary's models and is as convincing as any offered by Freud, Jung and subsequent theorists though influenced too by these. Its account of the process of brainwashing is also convincing. Wilson is good company as a writer, lacing the theory with informal humour and thought provoking exercises where he is arguably more insightful than most academic thinkers. But he loses me a bit in the last three circuits. It's not that I would deny totally that these exist but am not sure how influential they are. I'm willing to admit the right-brain where these are located plays a part in brain function that's not fully understood but a lot of what Wilson states is largely speculative. The positive effects of yoga I believe are overstated. Many of his predictions for the future haven't been realized but it still reads entertainingly as a prognosis from his situation at the time. I enjoyed the eclectic mix of Leary, Crowley and Joyce. Where else would you get it? Maybe Colin Wilson mined similar territory. Robert Anton was certainly an open-minded thinker. A lot of his readers seem to come to him as bright teenagers but I don't think I'm too old to learn something from him! ( )

Eye opening read. ( )

Interesting way of looking at personalities - possibly somewhat Freudian? Any grid-based "map" of existence is generally useful, but the mind keeps wandering back to this one. ( )

This is, likely, the one book of RAW's that I still have a copy of on a shelf somewhere. I read it nearly 20 years ago and I can't say I remember it well or would even necessarily still find it insightful. That said, it had a dramatic impact on me at the time I read it and open my mind to a lot of possible different ways of looking at the world around me. ( )

A mind altering book. The exercises at the end of a chapter must be done for you to truly get the best out of this book. Find a friend who likes this book and do the exercises together ( )
