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

surroundings. 2 - a person's awareness or perception of something, ie: the
fact of awareness by the mind of itself and the world.
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 need to understand both what
consciousness is and how it relates to other, non-conscious,
aspects of reality.

mechanical or electrical, in order to better understand how
it worked. Today hackers are persons who create or modify

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,
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.
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
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.
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
