"Antero Alli is that special brand of human, a frontier scout for the species,
out there on the rim where the past and future intersect."
– TIMOTHY LEARY

This book advances the material in Alli's groundbreaking first book, "ANGEL TECH" (Original Falcon), a compendium of techniques and practical applications of Dr. Timothy Leary’s 8-Circuit Brain model for Intelligence Increase. After twenty-plus years of research and experimentation, Antero's earlier findings have been significantly updated and enriched in this new body of work. Includes a comprehensive 8-week course of study and practice, the author's "Neurological Autobiography of Outside Shocks and Hedonic Upgrades," a forum featuring Alli's responses to questions from former students, accounts of his in-depth encounters with Christopher S. Hyatt and Robert Anton Wilson, and much, much more (click book image for excerpt).

“We honor those who have come before us, and must give special recognition to
Jerzy Grotowski, one of my own teachers, who originated the term paratheatrical
two and a half decades ago. We must also honor those who continue in this lineage
and take on the task of transmission. And transmission is what this book is all about.”

-- from the foreward by MATT MITLER, Director of Theatre Group Dzieci, NYC

 

Towards an Archeology of the Soul outlines the principles and techniques of a comprehensive ritual technology for Self-initiation developed by Antero Alli.

This workbook can act as a practical guide for solo and group rituals;includes articles by and interviews with noted ritualists and performers. Afterword by Robert Anton Wilson, PhD
