Praise Be To Bob: My Favorite Robert Anton Wilson Concepts

1. Contacting Aliens via Hash Based Sex Magick

“So I went out and I read Robert Anton Wilson’s books when I was twenty years old – which is twenty years ago now – and I figured “Is this guy bullshitting me? He says we can talk to aliens? We can talk to people from Sirius? Is he talking crap?”

Of course that’s a quote from Grant Morrison’s now notorious speech at Disinfo.Con in the year 2000. Sixteen years later and here I am, seemingly the only one mentioning this shit anymore. And that’d be why I’m writing this piece currently. “We are the beings from the Sirius Star System that were communicating with Robert Anton Wilson!” First words projected out of that transdimensional weirdo’s mind and into mine. The following message it projected into my spirit about the nature of the holy trinity is something I’ll continually contemplate until the day I die. Man, you should really read my books if you’re still not hip to this story by now (you can download both of them for a total of $8 bucks). Because of this transmissions I reread Cosmic Trigger: Final Secret and was fairly shocked at the fact that what these entities were supposedly going to do was teach you a lesson about the perceptual nature of time. Which is of course exactly what they did. “We exist, OUTSIDE OF TIME. That’s why it’s difficult for us to communicate with you!” I’d read Cosmic Trigger maybe nine years before that point and I did not remember this aspect of the book at all. He also talks about what I call ganj-i-tating and hearing voices in his head teaching him lessons of forgiveness. Never read a more precise description of exactly what I’ve been experiencing for years now anywhere else. Sirius transmissions regarding my karmic impact on the collective whole of the human timeline. Knowledge and Conversation with your Holy Guardian Alien.

Anyway, I think it’s pretty important to point out that when both Morrison and Wilson had their contact experiences, they weren’t just playing around with sex magick, they were playing around with sex magick in conjunction with psychedelics drugs. I think that’s pretty important actually. I’ve listened to a bunch of weird alien contact-esque stories people have told me online over the last several years. Most of them involved psychedelics and almost zero involved any sort of Occult practice whatsoever. Occult people who aren’t using psychedelics specifically don’t seem to have these stories and yet, it also spontaneously happens to dead sober people like Whitley Strieber as well. DMT seems to be the only real reliable way to make this shit go down, but as far as I can tell it’s such a disorienting state that it’s hard to learn from.

Which is where the hash based sex Tantra comes in. What I also love about Cosmic Trigger is that he goes on and on about how marijuana in particular can be quite effective when used as a means of intentional consciousness manipulation. Where on earth has this rhetoric gone? Weed is legalized where I live and its sex meditational applications aren’t being publicly discussed by seemingly anyone other than me as far as I can tell. Seems like a selling point. Seems like we could design strains specifically for this purpose and make a bundle. I mean, we finally legalized and ancient Occult practice that was once strictly forbidden and no one seems to be pointing that out or taking advantage. Get on it people.

Anyway, this needs to wrap up here due to internet attention spans. As I was saying, Wilson’s work is almost like a Rorschach test in a way. There’s so much intel there that people pick up on vastly different aspects of it. Those are some of his more intriguing areas of philosophical exploration in my weird little microverse, and the thing is, I could have probably added like 5 more categories no probs. Also, I think he was dead wrong about at least as much shit, but that’s another story for another day and until that day. Robert Anton Wilson. Never forget tripsters.
