Awaken The World Through Enlightened Media

Quotes by Dr. John Lilly

  1. “In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true.”
  2. “Eventually it may be possible for humans to speak with another species. I have come to this conclusion after careful consideration of evidence gained through my research experiments with dolphins. If new scientific developments are to be made in this direction, however, certain changes in our basic orientation and philosophy will be necessary.”
  3. “We must strip ourselves, as far as possible, of our preconceptions about the relative place of Homo Sapiens in the scheme of nature.”
  4. “Our only security is our ability to change.”
  5. “In the network’s mind there are no limits.”
  6. “At the highest level of satori from which people return, the point of consciousness becomes a surface or a solid which extends throughout the whole known universe. This used to be called fusion with the Universal Mind or God.”
  7. “In the centre of the cyclone one is off the wheel of Karma, of life, rising to join the Creators of the Universe, the Creators of us. Here we find that we have created Them who are Us.”
  8. “It was in this state that I experienced “myself” as melded and intertwined with hundreds of billions of other beings in a thin sheet of consciousness that was distributed around the galaxy. A membrane.”
  9. “I call God ECCO now. The Earth Coincidence Control Office. It’s much more satisfying to call it that.”
  10. “Before I could progress forward and move deeper and in a more thorough fashion into these far-out spaces, it would be necessary for me to solve the problems of my planetside obligations.”
  11. “I finally found a God that was big enough.”
  12. “The centre of the cyclone is that rising quiet central low-pressure place in which one can learn to live eternally.”
  13. “Well, when I started going out on the universe with LSD in the tank, I’d come to a certain group of entities and I’d say, ‘Are you God?’ And they’d say, ‘Well, we say that to some people but God is way up there somewhere with the angels.’ And it turned out no matter how big they were, God is bigger.”
  14. “In their communications with me the guides had made it very clear that there were many unsatisfactory aspects to my life, i.e., that I had accumulated a great deal of responsibility in the form of professional colleagues, employees, family, children.”
  15. “Just outside of this Centre is the rotating storm of one’s own ego, competing with other egos in a furious high-velocity circular dance.”
  16. “Quite early in the dolphin research, around 1955, I had realized that the dolphins have a very large brain, larger than ours, and that they were far more developed than we in strange and alien ways.”

  20. “If you get into these spaces [non-ordinary states of consciousness] at all, you must forget about them when you come back. You must forget you’re omnipotent and omniscient and take the game seriously so you’ll engage in sex, have children, and participate in the whole human scenario.”
  21. “As the LSD began to take effect, I suddenly said … : ’Every Psychiatrist, every psychoanalyst should be forced to take LSD in order to know what is over here.’ What I meant was that anybody who has anything to do with the human mind and care should be trained in these spaces.”
  22. “All human beings, all persons who reach adulthood in the world today are programmed biocomputers. No one of us can escape our own nature as programmable entities. Literally, each of us may be our programs, nothing more, nothing less.”
  23. “Essentially, metaprogramming is an operation in which a central control system controls hundreds of thousands of programs operating in parallel simultaneously.”
  24. “You don’t have to suffer continual chaos in order to grow.”
