The Wisdom of Robert Anton Wilson

Via our friends at Daily Grail:

On October 23rd, the London Fortean Society celebrated “The Late Great Robert Anton Wilson” at the Horse Hospital in London. featuring lectures by our good friend John Higgs as well as Daisy Eris Campbell. John’s well-presented talk, in which he riffs on RAW’s thoughts about belief and reality, has been uploaded to YouTube and I heartily recommend it – in fact, I wish everyone on Earth would hear what John is talking about, because it’s such a key aspect of the ways in which we fool ourselves (often to the detriment of others).

Read more about Wilson and the lecture here.

    The plan is for The Cosmic Trigger Play to start in the UK and then head to The States. To help with setting up costs, donations of £23 or $23 (or multiples) at this stage will get you on the guest list for The Grand Discordian Opening Night (UK or USA). Part of the donations will be going to the Robert Anton Wilson Estate for the rights. If you want to donate with paypal or to get on the mailing list, the e-mail address is: cosmictriggerplay at gmail dot com

    Never thought a book could “change my life” until I read RAW’s Prometheus Rising. Great man, should be required reading.

      Agreed. RAW’s “Masks of the Illuminati” was my gateway book. From there, the Historic Illuminatus Trilogy, and then the non-fiction. Every single one has been life-changing. No exaggeration.

      I pretty much had no clue what I was getting into when read the Illuminatus! Trilogy. I still don’t, but now like to speculate occasionally.

    The Principia Discordia was my gateway drug to RAW. Thank you Eris.

    Watching this made me wanna re-read the Illuminatus Trilogy again.
    Bob taught me how to think, and for that I will be eternally grateful.
