In his pioneering 1967 dissertation:
“Programming and Metaprogramming in the Human Biocomputer, Dr. John C Lilly postulated that humans are essentially a biological computer,  born with specific bio-firmware programming such as eating, sleeping, and feeling pain… embedded in their genetic code. Our ability to take in new information and to develop ideas beyond these innate programs depends on our capacity for "meta-programming," or learning to learn.

By altering the brain's normal operations via the application of various “Consciousness Hacking” techniques, the range of human thought, the power and ability of the human mind can be increased beyond any previous expectations…

Consciousness (noun)
1 - the state of being aware of and responsive to one's surroundings.
2 - a person's awareness or perception of something, ie: the fact of awareness by the mind of itself and the world. 

-         Oxford Dictionaries 

Perhaps no aspect of mind is more familiar or more puzzling than consciousness and our conscious experience of self and world. The problem of consciousness is arguably the central issue in current theorizing about the mind. Despite the lack of any agreed upon theory of consciousness, there is a widespread, if less than universal, consensus that an adequate account of mind requires a clear understanding of it and its place in nature. We needConsciousness Hacker to understand both what consciousness is and how it relates to other, non-conscious, aspects of reality. 

-Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

 Hacker (noun)
1 - a person who uses computers to gain unauthorized access to data.
2 - an enthusiastic and skillful computer programmer or user.

 - Oxford Dictionaries

Originally, a hacker was anybody who tinkered with any kind of system, mechanical or electrical, in order to better understand how it worked. Today hackers are persons who create or modify computer software, typically with the goal of using software in a manner not intended by the original computer programmer.

Consciousness Hacking is a series of techniques (yogas) and an array of technologies (tantras) designed to promote mindfulness, develop clarity and invigorate internal energy or life force (chi or prana). These techniques entrain the mind and body to be familiar with specific, beneficial brain-state modes such as concentration, compassion, correct understanding, patience, humility, perseverance, etc. Consciousness Hacking's most ambitious form seeks to effortlessly sustain single-pointed and enthused concentration. Rather than to seek oblivion, or to "turn off" the world, Consciousness Hacking allows its practitioner (intelligence engineer, in tekgnostics parlance) to enjoy a sustainable sense of well-being, while being fully engaged in day-to-day activities.

Consciousness Hacking can be considered a spiritual technology. The word spirit (from Latin spiritus "breath") is often used metaphysically to refer to human consciousness or personality. Consciousness Hacking has been intertwined with humanity's planetary rise to prominence, for the last 10,000 years, perhaps more. The oldest form of consciousness hacking is known as: meditation. The history of meditation can be traced back at least 5,000 years, to when the effects of staring into flickering flames of fire was first discovered by ancient humans. This discovery became a form of practice as early man sought to repeat the experience.

Emerging from this "first practice" ...several meditation techniques were developed and began to spread throughout Earth's early civilizations. It can be argued that these early practices were the foundation of spirituality, as well as it's "evil twin" ...religion. Tek-Gnostics views religion as a political institution, thereby making it suspect.  In keeping with Tek-Gnostics core tenet that the essence of being human resides within the relationship between spirit and universe, Consciousness Hacking is driven by individual need, desire and intent. In this regard, Consciousness Hacking is a spiritual, consciousness enhancing conceptual tool or artifact.

Interestingly, modern science has revisited the brain entraining properties of the flickering flames of that primordial fire. Light and sound, used in the proper setting, have been shown to facilitate brain entrainment, through what is known as the frequency-following effect. This effect is more profound with pulsed, binaural beats. A binaural beat is the result of one ear hearing a pure tone of a slightly differing pitch than the other ear. The brain then actually synthesizes the difference between the two, syncing with the result.

Tek-Gnostics pursues Consciousness Hacking with a Cyberpunk, DIY ethos. Brain entrainment technologies need to be the purview of the individual, rather than in the hands of manipulative institutions. In this modern world of mass media manipulation, personal autonomy of thought has never been more imperative. It is therefore in the spirit of individual Gnosis (knowledge) that we present the following video for your enjoyment...
