The RAW mind

Robert Anton Wilson

Born Robert Edward Wilson, January 18, 1932 – January 11, 2007

Wilson described his work as an “attempt to break down conditioned associations, to look at the world in a new way, with many models recognized as models or maps, and no one model elevated to the truth.”

“My goal is to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone but agnosticism about everything.”

Possibly the only person who ever lived who could cause me to re-evaluate my thoughts on the workings of the mind. His thoughts are crisp and clear, his concepts cogent, his insights deep.  

I will not go so far as to say that he is wrong in a few instances, but will say that I may be less wrong.

And I am sure that I am more wrong in many.

He has acquired a cult status and his eulogy is moving. (link below)

 The Quantum Mind – contains a very good summary of the different philosophy’s of truth in the beginning and an interesting summation of factors that affect the thought process. While it may seem at times metaphysical, it must remembered that he is attempting to address ALL concepts in their own terms. A daunting task indeed.

Fascinating account of  transactional analysis’s origions in the Tarot cards.

“Only humans are conscious of struggling, and hence worried and depressed about the Game of Life.”Faith Healer

 “…to know that they were once totally robotized (as most people still are) and are knowingly engaged in acquiring more neurosomatic know-how. When this reaches 51% of the population, a major historic al revolution will have occurred, as profound as the Life Extension Revolution.”  – McLuhen

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, design a building, conn a ship, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve an equation, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. ” Robert Heinlein
