to Cybernetics The development of the mind is more than just the evolution of the
brain. Each step of the evolutionary ladder is paralleled by steps on the
neurological ladder from infant to adult and beyond, each opening a
new neurological circuit. As we create new steps for ourselves we
become the directors of our evolution, and as we begin to author our
own input we can develop an owner’s manual for the mind. Dr.
Leary’s workshop places factors from television to psychedelic drugs
to video games to virtual reality computer systems in perspective on
the continuing exploration of the inner frontier.
Dr. Timothy Leary, one of the most revolutionary thinkers of our
time, began his work with psychotherapy and mind expansion at
Harvard University in 1959. His successful therapeutic experi
ments with psychedelics ended with their illegalization in 1966,
and Dr. Leary’s work became centered on new scientific means of
extending life and increasing intelligence. Psychology author
and novelist, he created computer software and was a
major proponent of virtual reality systems long befor they were technologically feasible.
