click to readDr. Timothy Leary's book 'The Game of Life' (Part 4 of his Future-History Series) is by far one of his best and most accessible. Although, like most of his books, they are chaotic and disorganized and for the most part confusing, this book catergorizes Leary's own philosophy into the scientific-occult world of Aleister Crowley and Tarot. Leary begins with evolution and Darwin, along with Mendeleyev and his classification of chemical elements. Along with neurological thoughts of the nervous system, DNA, synaptic connections, I-Ching and Hindu Mythology. This is the first part, which may seem random and non-linear, he eventually connects all of this to the system of Tarot, which is the ancient occult divination practice in which picture symbols unconsciously give your brain suggestions in e-volving your DNA consciousness while in-volving your body/mind circuitry. Highly regarding Aleister Crowley's work in his "Book of Thoth" and his own Tarot deck, he understands that Crowley was on a similar path, only using different language. The second part is a chapter dedicated to each Tarot card alloting it its own intelligence in the chain of evolutionary process. Leary does expand the set giving it 24 major cards instead of the standard 22. An excellent book and highly reccomended to all!. At first glance this book may look like an issue of Mad Magazine, but once studied and practiced, it all comes together. Although its hard to appreciate on its own, I would suggest reading Crowley's own "Book of Thoth" along with it. Also reccomended is Leary's "Info-Psychology" in which he explains the 24 neuro-circuits more scientifically. And for an even more accessible view and understanding of Leary's 24 neuro-circuits is Robert Anton Wilson's "Prometheus Rising." These books together will give you a 3-Dimensional understanding and insight into the wisdom of the body/brain. This book also has contributiuons by R. A. Wilson.
