John C. Lilly, M.D.

I'm currently reading Dr. Lilly's Center of the Cyclone, in which he writes about his experiments with LSD in the 1950s and 1960s, plus his work with sense-deprivation isolation tanks. He's also the guy who did a lot of experementation on communicating with dolphins, as well as exploring any consciousness our sea-going mammal friends might have.

This site has a lot of info about the late doctor, with scientific papers and other sources.

Here's his home page.

"In the province of connected minds, what the network believes to be true, either is true or becomes true within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the network's mind there are no limits."
--John Lilly

Because of the Roger Corman film, he's probably the best known MK-ULTRA researcher.

He might also be one of the least dangerous of those bastards. But that's not saying much.
