How To Operate Your Brain: Systemology of Reality Engineering with Dr. Timothy Leary


The reference to “information” being an ‘in-form’ or ‘forming-in’ experience — found within Joshua Free’s Systemology bestseller: REALITY ENGINEERING — is derived from ‘How to Operate Your Brain’ (1994) by Dr. Timothy Leary, stating:

“Throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we are going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities — the political, the religious, the educational authorities – who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing – forming in our minds – their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable open-mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.”

REthumbself “Think for yourself…Question authority…” infamous lines from Dr. Timothy Leary (b. 1920 – d. 1996) exclaimed by the experimental psychologist during the 1960’s; words that have since been immortalized along with the concept of “set and setting” (which is used in NexGen Systemology) and the phrase: “turn on, tune in, drop out.” The passage selection extracted is derived from ‘How to Operate Your Brain‘ (1994). Leary explains:

“The natural state of the brain is chaos. We’re dealing with a complexity of information. The first thing to do is to overwhelm your focused mind, your linear mind, by overloading signals, digital patterns, clusters of photons and electrons which produce a pleasant state of confused chaos. This is the state of the brain when it is ready to be informed, that is, to be reprogrammed. The human brain contains one hundred billion neurons, each neuron is as powerful as a large computer, and each neuron has around ten thousand connections with other neurons. Within our foreheads there is a chaos, inside our brains there is a galaxy of information, which is incomprehensible to our linear minds.”

sys101newcvrthumb “This contrasts and compares perfectly with the chaos without. We’re living in a universe, which has one hundred billion galaxies, each galaxy with star systems, planets, a complexity, again, which to our minds right now is chaotic, incomprehensible. Chaos is beautiful. Now many times we are afraid because we want order. We can’t deal with the confusion and disorder. We want form. We want rules. Yes, throughout human history there have been people—religious leaders, political leaders—who will give you order. They will give you rules and commandments.”

But chaos is basically good. Relax. Surf the waves of chaos and learn how to redesign your own realities. Sit back. Flow. Open your eyes. Turn off your minds. Unfocus, and let the waves of chaos roll over your brain. Float. Drift, Zoom. Design. Create new order, your order, your style from chaos…


“The aim of human life is to know thyself. Think for yourself. Question authority. Think with your friends. Create, create new realities. Philosophy is a team sport. Philosophy is the ultimate, the ultimate aphrodisiac pleasure. Learning how to operate your brain, learning how to operate your mind, learning how to redesign chaos. The religious leaders, the political leaders want to give you orders to run your life, to determine how you think. The basic goal is to operate your own mind. Think for yourself.”

REthumbself “To operate your brain you must understand how to use your eyes. “Oh say, can you see?” Oh say, can’t you see what is being done to your eyes? Who controls your eyeballs, controls your mind, imprints your brain. Oh say, can’t you see that the messages that hit your eyeballs in modern television are creating realities, imprinting messages from the sponsors who are not usually interested in your learning how to design your own realities.”

water_nuke_2560x1600 “Who controls your screen controls the programs in your mind. Your eyes are the windows of your brain. The eyes are extensions of the brain. The eyes are made up of hundreds of layers of neurons, rods, cones. Your eyeballs deal with one energy: It’s light. Through your eyes come illumination, vision, perception, enlightenment, illumination. Your eyes are the windows of your soul. Who controls your eyeballs programs your brain. Learn how to dial, fine tune your eyeballs. Learn how to unfocus your eyes, dilate your pupils, learn how to open up to illumination and light, and then refocus and redesign your own inner order, your own designs, your own language.”

sys101newcvrthumb “The brain is designed to design realities. If you operate your own brain skillfully, you can learn to design your own realities, learn how to communicate in the language of the brain: electrons and photons. We are doing this now. We are sending messages from our brains, using the vehicle of electrons and photons, to your eyeballs. As we watch this screen, our minds are bedazzled, our minds are softened, our linear, sharp logical thinking is gentled, and we are communicating brain to brain. We are using the electron, computer circuits, to feed each other’s brains with light…”

Mastering the Game of Life & NexGen Systemology, The Right Way with Joshua Free


The Games represent an element of what might be best described (for this instance) as a puzzle. In all actuality, the true essence of the journey has not been set down in writing before and the most covert and translucent aspects are omitted in the narrative by not only necessity but the respect for certain individuals, non-disclosure agreements maintained with persons currently involved in the ‘occult underground’ and so forth…

sys101newcvrthumb There are many lessons to be learned – regardless of where you are – but some things can be sought specifically, such as the destination of a journey. And some destinations are meant to be experienced in different ways by different individuals. There is no one way to play the Game; hence the incredible difficulty in relaying in words what all others have had to experience directly. As such, it is the craft of a literary artist to seek a means of overcoming such consciousness barriers of new paradigms of awareness; which is, of course, the delicate task I put before myself here.

the games All of life in existence is an individuated experience. Such can also be said with the practice of magical arts in general or even the Games. It is important to understand the subjective nature of what one is experiencing in life today and especially what one will experience when intentionally subjecting themselves to a magical array of tests and challenges. Will you be able to retain who you are in the process? Will you be able to withstand the attack on integrity and sanity and arise having overcome the gauntlet set to meet the point of your personal limitations?

that is being brought to the game field (or arena or battle-zone, if you prefer) is able to fully and truly experience the reality set before them free of their previously conditioned responses, both the responses made in the mind and those enacted out in behavior. Otherwise, the player is likely to get caught up in the illusions and glamours that are set before them, whether they be images and visions of another’s power or their own; many that have begun the journey were lost to it.

reality157 Just as people’s minds become imprinted and encoded, so does the energy and memory of a space. The more a particular belief or thought or energetic quality is affirmed and manifested, the more it will be ‘resonant’ or share affinity, with such energy in the future. It leaves a trail, imprint or impression – a trench dug into the ground – that influences the most likely course or flow for the future.


Our beliefs and thoughts direct our behaviors and actions. In turn, the outcomes of our behaviors and actions actually reinforce the beliefs and thoughts themselves. This recurssive cycle is not always recognized by everyday people when they self-direct their awareness and thereby expectations onto the world around them. Although the ‘surface world’ means of psychology have focused on changing/altering external behavior, others focus on the change of belief…
