Cunningham Lilly, M. J. (1972). The Center of the Cyclone. Retrieved from

In this new-age classic of scientific research, Dr. John C. Lilly shares his ground-breaking theory of the interaction between the mind and the brain. Using his personal experiments in solitude, isolation, and confinement, he combines these states with LSD, mysticism, and other catalysts to gain a new understanding into the inner spaces of the human consciousness. Dr. Lilly details his experiments in researching the far-out spaces and demonstrates how he programs such spaces and experiences through his method of self-metaprogramming. Dr. Lilly explains: "In the province of the mind, what is believed to be true is true of becomes true, within limits to be found experientially or experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the province of the mind, there are no limits." Displaying a frankness that is refreshingly objective, The Center of the Cyclone offers a rational scientific explanation of how the mind works in those special states of consciousness.

Dr. John C. Lilly shares his ground-breaking theory of the interaction between the mind and the brain.

"I have spent much time in rather unusual, unordinary states, spaces, universes, dimensions, realities - the young Americans call these places “far out." In the far and near East, they are called by a variety of names - the terms "Satori" and "Samadhi" turn up frequently." - p1
