Overview

Robert Anton Wilson's final book explores the "relativity of reality" in a mind-bending stream of essays. Among other topics, the master of guerrilla ontology examines The Celtic Roots Of Quantum Theory, Schrödinger's Other Cat, Joyce & Daoism, Sexual Alchemy, Left and Right: A Non-Euclidean Perspective, and Cheerful Reflections On Death And Dying. RAW's description of his run for Governor of California as the candidate for his Guns & Dope Party offers a delightfully absurd view of an improbable Maybe in terrestrial politics. "I wrote these polemics, poems, neurolinguistic experiments and assorted meanderings over a period of about 45 years," and in reflecting on this extraordinary collection of his writings, the brilliant and modest Model Agnostic adds, "I don't believe anything, but I have many suspicions . . . These suspicions have grown over 72 years, but as a rather slow and stupid fellow I do not have the Chutzpah to proclaim any of them as certitudes."

"A SUPER GENIUS . . . He has written everything I was afraid to write." - Dr. John Lilly, writer, neuroscientist and psychonaut

"One of the leading thinkers of the modern age." - Barbara Marx Hubbard, Foundation for Conscious Evolution

"A masterful satirist who views history as an open question." - Brad Linaweaver, Atlanta Constitution

"I have learned more from Robert Anton Wilson than I have from any other source." - Comedian George Carlin

Trilogy, Robert Anton Wilson (RAW or Bob) was a futurist, author, lecturer, stand-up comic, guerrilla ontologist, psychedelic magician, outer head of the Illuminati, quantum psychologist, Taoist sage, Discordian Pope, Struthian politician . . . maybe. Bob described his work as an "attempt to break down conditioned associations, to look at the world in a new way, with different perspectives recognized as models or maps, and no one model elevated to the truth". His goal being "to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone but agnosticism about everything." His "Maybe Logic" inspired the creation of the Maybe Logic Academy. Google "Robert Anton Wilson" for mosbunall info.

The Berkeley mob once called Leary and me "the counter-culture of the counter-culture." I'm some kind of antibody in the New Age movement. My function is to raise the possibility, "Hey, you know, some of this stuff might be bullshit."

I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of essay from the last fifty years of Bob's writing career. It moves from the tragic to the cosmic, with lots of wit and wisdom along the way.
