Human biocomputer

The term human biocomputer , by John C. Lilly , refers to the “hardware” of the human anatomy . Would this include the brain , internal organs , and other human organ systems Such As cardiovascular , digestive , endocrine , immune , integumentary , lymphatic , muscular , nervous , reproductive , respiratory , skeletal , and urinary systems. The biocomputer has stored program properties, and self-metaprogramming properties, With limits determinable and to be determined. [1]


The functional organization of the human biocomputer is: [2]

Level Description parts
11 Above and in biocomputer unknown
10 Beyond metaprogramming supra-species-metaprograms
9 To be metaprogrammed supra-self-metaprograms
8 To metaprogram Self-metaprogram
7 To program sets of programs Metaprograms

6 Detailed instructions Programs

General clarification

The levels of the human biocomputer are: the level of the human body. Certain energies and materials (heat, light, sound, food, and secretions) pass through this boundary in special places. Levels two to three are the boundaries of body and brain, in which these structures are blood vessels, nerve fibers, and cerebrospinal fluid pass. Levels four through eleven are in the brain circuitry, and is the software inside the biocomputer. Levels after ten are termed unknown. This is to allow an openness for future scientific research, and discoveries. This is also the case for the use of the term ” And to point out the heuristic nature of this schema. [3]



Mind , which is defined as the sum of all programs and metaprograms (and even supraself metaprograms) of a human biocomputer. [4] This is the software and is seen at the opposite of the hardware.


The brain is defined as the visible, palpable living set of structures to be included in the human biocomputer. [5]

Stored programs

A stored program is defined as a set of instructions for the storage of the biocomputer, and which controls the biocomputer when they are given for that program to be activated. [6] These programs can be activated by the same biocomputer, another biocomputer, or a situation outside of the biocomputer.


Metaprogramming is defined as a set of instructions, descriptions, and implementations of related thoughts and actions (programs). [7] Self metaprogramming involves the creation, revision, and reorganization of programs and metaprograms. [7]
