John Lilly, and may be considered autobiographical from that standpoint, but admits that taken from a human-centered viewpoint it may be thought of as fiction; an imaginary creation of the author. But it welcomes the open mind, the mind willing to accept the possibility of something more, nonfiction and the beginnings or a truth stranger than fiction

This man lead a most interesting life. You will not be bored. Your credulity may be strained, if you are of a scientific bent. After all, his most interesting revelations occur as a result of obsessive injection of Ketamine (called vitamin K in the book). His Ketamine visions may have been prescient: we watery organisms are destined for an AI end. This book, I should remind you, was written long before talk of The Singularity was available, but his conclusions are similar. A fascinating read. Float tanks, LSD, dolphins, advanced evolutionary beings...what's not to like?

I always enjoy reading autobiographical books, provided that the person in question is interesting (forget about Churchill or Tony Blair).
John Lilly was an outstanding genious, he was the person who discovered a method to study brain by inserting electrodes deep into brain tissue and by that was able to chart out which spots are responsible for different phenomena (heaven, hell etc.). He had a brilliant idea of inserting several hundreds of electrodes into his own brain, record the output during a period of activity onto tape, and later replay it back into brain and see what happens. By understanding how devastating this technology could be in the wrong hands he reluctantly rejected this path of study. I haven't heard if anybody has conducted this experiment in later times but this idea really is interesting.
He later began to experiment on human mind with sensory deprivation tanks and trying to communicate with dolphins, also he was not afraid to study his own conciousness using drugs like ketamine (which he calls vitamin K in the book). Many strange stories did sprout up from pursuing this path. He relates how under the effects of the drug he once even tried to call president of US to warn him that the artificial intelligence from outer space is trying to take over mankind.
Interesing stuff, there are not many books that are as good as this one.

Almost done with this book, and it has been truly wonderful. If you love being able to see things from a different perspective, then give Dr. Lilly's book a read.

I had read several of Lilly's books in the late 70s and early 80s so the subject matter was familiar to me.The book was fascinating!
So badly bound it arrived with pages falling out. I returned it unread
