Subvert Your Mind

A Listmania! list by MetaThis (St. Louis, MO USA)
The list author says: "Recommendations for mind re-programming and designer consciousness.

Edit note: I created this list years ago. It previously had a much heavier focus on occult philosophy and ritual. I recently deleted most of it and re-ordered the remainder. Everything related to Chaos Magick is gone. I still assert the value of the meta-belief paradigm at the core of chaote theory and practice, and advocate a solid grasp of the ego deconstruction and reconditioning practices it advocates, but there are better sources for these concepts. Crowley and Thelemic philosophy are also gone; too much context is required to produce any value for the casual reader."
Glimpses of Abhidharma: From a Seminar on Buddhist Psychology
1.  Glimpses of Abhidharma: From a Seminar on Buddhist Psychology by Chogyam Trungpa
The list author says:
  "This is an amazing read on Buddhist psychology. It's the best analysis of consciousness I've seen. These ideas can be very useful as an adjunct to meditation practices and general self-analysis."

Cosmic Trigger I: Final Secret of the Illuminati
2.  Cosmic Trigger I: Final Secret of the Illuminati by Robert Anton Wilson
The list author says:
  "This book is essential for codifying important ideas about our 'reality tunnels' and techniques for altering them, and for soundly grasping multi-model thinking. This is also an excellent introduction to a wide range of Robert Anton Wilson's ideas, in the context of a narrative of a period of his own life. I highly recommend this as a starting point before advancing to any of the following books."

The Illuminatus! Trilogy: The Eye in the Pyramid, The Golden Apple, Leviathan
3.  The Illuminatus! Trilogy: The Eye in the Pyramid, The Golden Apple, Leviathan by Robert Anton Wilson
The list author says:
  "A R.A.W. classic. More important to Discordianism than the Principia Discordia. Hysterically funny, and a psychedelic experience in itself. The mere act of reading it provokes and promotes multi-model thinking."
$14.77   Used & New from: $2.44
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (331 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Quantum Psychology: How Brain Software Programs You and Your World
4.  Quantum Psychology: How Brain Software Programs You and Your World by Robert Anton Wilson
The list author says:
  "One reviewer summed it up well: 'I truly had no idea the robotizing effect language has on our behavior and perceptions.' This is basically the follow-up to Prometheus Rising."
$17.72   Used & New from: $7.48
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (45 customer reviews)

Prometheus Rising
5.  Prometheus Rising by Robert Anton Wilson
The list author says:
  "This is an expansion upon Leary's 8 Circuit Model Of Consciousness. Bob discusses Transactional Analysis in many of his books, and this is his primary treatment of that subject."
$17.25   Used & New from: $10.36
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (105 customer reviews)

The Kybalion: A Study of the Hermetic Philosophy of Ancient Egypt
6.  The Kybalion: A Study of the Hermetic Philosophy of Ancient Egypt by The Three Initiates

  "A concise treatment of the Hermetic school of occult philosophy. Important and valuable symbolism."
$18.04   Used & New from: $3.38
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (222 customer reviews)

Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming
7.  Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming by Stephen Laberge

  "The techniques work. I can confirm this from my own experiences in working with this book."
$6.00   Used & New from: $1.41
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (139 customer reviews)

Valis
8.  Valis by Philip K. Dick
The list author says:
  "If you are fascinated by Gnosticism, you'll probably love this one. If you were intrigued by Robert Anton Wilson's  experiences in Cosmic Trigger: Volume 1, then you must read this book. It's a fictualized autobiographical account of  Philip Dick's experiences that have eery synchronicities with Bob's. In fact, the two ended up corresponding with each other because of it."

The Dice Man
9.  The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart
The list author says:
  "An interesting examination of ego deconstruction through submission to chance/chaos, and the consequences involved in breaking through personal and societal taboos. It's a worthwhile read for anyone interested in or practicing ego deconstruction techniques. It's also a great novel with a lot of dark humor."
$12.32   Used & New from: $1.55
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (93 customer reviews)

Finite and Infinite Games:  A Vision of Life as Play and Possibility
10.  Finite and Infinite Games: A Vision of Life as Play and Possibility by James P. Carse
The list author says:
  "This is an amazing little book. It's partially a poetic rendition of transactional psychology with its concept of 'infinite games' being like 'winner scripts,' but there is also a deeper philosophical message that can be appreciated by anyone with a taoist/buddhist/mystic/magickian leaning. It will make you re-think a lot of your attitudes towards everyday life."

The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge
11.  The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge by Carlos Castaneda
The list author says:
  "I had to include at least one Carlos Castaneda book for completeness. While all of them are worthwhile, this is the first and most important if you read only one. This is a journey into the shamanic reality tunnel."
$8.44   Used & New from: $2.60

12.  Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse

Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot Deck
13.  Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot Deck by Aleister Crowley
The list author says:
  "Regardless of your beliefs about divination, Tarot is a way of gaining insight into your subsurface thoughts and feelings by using archetypes to paint a conceptual picture to reflect upon. The more I use it, the more I value it."
Used & New from: $20.00
