Book Review: Prometheus Rising
"One faith-healer told the present author, "Most people die of adrenaline poisoning." In our terminology, most people have too much first-circuit anxiety and second-circuit territorial pugnacity for their own good. They are literally struggling for survival, as no other animals do, despite Darwin. Most animals simply play most of the time, solve problems of survival when they have to, or die of not solving the problems; only humans are conscious of struggling, and hence worried and depressed about the Game of Life.
The faith-healer went on, "What cures them is realizing that I'm not afraid." That is, contact with a fifth-circuit personality, a person who controls his or her own Circuit II adrenaline-trips, can be a catalyst, throwing the sufferer upward into a personal fifth-circuit experience."
Anyone who's interested in learning their own social-programming, undoing it and rewiring themselves needs to read this book.
The book pretty much wraps up the role of society in creating good little automatons and identifies the limits and faults of such a system. In my experience this book BEST lays out the path from inbred, socially-conditioned fear to one of "enlightenment", true ambition, and power over yourself.
Thanks for the info, I buy it now.
Only about to start to start chapter 1 and I can already tell it looks like a mother fucker
From what I've read so far this book is THE SHIT. Thanks for the recommendation.
Just thought I would bump and say if you have a tablet, this book is completely free in pdf format. Just type in "Prometheus rising pdf" into google.
Gonna start it tomorrow, along with meditation for 15 mins a day
It's not letting me do a search for some reason. Can anyone find me the reference in the book where he brings up "The Chalice & The Blade", thx.
Wouldn't bring up chalice or blade for me either. Strange.
I got the book recommendation from this book, and now can't find it. DURR
