The eight-circuit model of consciousness (sometimes capitalized) is a theory in psychology, first proposed by Timothy Leary.
It consists of several quantum psychological systems that unify the various interpretations of the main altered states of consciousness into one coherent meta-theory.
The most basic part describes, in a simple outline, eight circuits of information (colloquially “brains”) that operate within the human nervous system.
Leary, Robert Anton Wilson and Antero Alli have all written about each circuit in depth and how each operates in the lives of human beings, both individually and collectively. The eight-circuit model provides a conglomerate model of several preceding and interconnecting models within some of the human and medical sciences such as psychology, neurology, sociology, anthropology (etc.) and other more “hard sciences” such as physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, co-mingled with spirituality (especially from Freemasonry and Eastern religio-philosophies).
