The Fundamentalist internal linkChristians have told me that I am a slave of Satan and should have the demons expelled with an exorcism. The Fundamentalist Materialists inform me that I am a liar, a charlatan, fraud and scoundrel. Aside from this minor difference, the letters are astoundingly similar. Both groups share in the same crusading zeal and the same total lack of humor, charity, and common human decency.

These intolerable cults have served to confirm me in my internal linkagnosticism by presenting further evidence to support my contention that when dogmas enter the brain, all intellectual activity ceases.

Robert Anton Wilson, PhD, is the Elder Statesman of internal linkconspiriology. With over 25 books on futurist psychology and guerilla ontology, including the recent encyclopedia _Everything Is Under Control_, Wilson pioneered subculture investigative research long before The X-Files made fringe-watching hip. Wilson is best known for the classic _The Illuminatus! Trilogy_atomjacked inventory cache (co-authored with Bob Shea), which was adapted as a 10-hour epic and performed at Great Britain’s National Theatre, and the powerful autobiographical _Cosmic Trigger_ trilogy. Wilson’s most influential books include _Prometheus Rising_atomjacked inventory cache, _Quantum Psychology_atomjacked inventory cache, the _Schrodinger’s Cat_ trilogy, _Neuropolitics_ (with internal linkTimothy Leary) and internal link_Wilhelm Reich in Hell_. His book _The New Inquisition_atomjacked inventory cache bravely attacked the prejudices of Committee for Scientific Investigation.  Wilson has given seminars at the Esalen Institute (and remains a frequently sought-after speaker), recorded an album (The Chocolate Biscuit Conspiracy) with internal linkpunk rock-band Golden Horde, and recorded a comedy album (Secrets of Power).  He received his Ph.D in psychology from Hawthorn University. In a previous incarnation (1966-71), Wilson was Associate Editor with Playboy magazine.

      Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?

      fusion telex

      “Frankly, I’d find life a bore if I weren’t playing for very high stakes in a very high risk situation. We do have the chance now, for internal linkUtopia and even for internal linkimmortality. If we who see this opportunity aren’t smart enough, adroit enough, and fast enough to seize the chance, then we don’t deserve to initiate the next stage of internal linkevolution… Meanwhile, until they shovel me under, I still think our side is winning and that the power brokers that you worry about are a bunch of dying internal linkdinosaurs.”

      “We should always try to have a internal linkreality-tunnel this week, bigger, funnier, and more hopeful than we had last week, and we should aim even higher next week. Besides, paranoia is a Loser script; it defines somebody else as being in charge around here except me. I prefer to define myself and my friends as the architects of the future. If David Rockefeller has the same idea about himself and his friends, well, the future itself will decide which coalition was really on the Evolutionary internal linkWave: the Money people or the Idea people”

      film internal link_23_ (1998)

      The movie’s plot is based on the internal linktrue story of a group of young computer internal linkhackers from Hannover, Germany. In the late internal link1980s the orphaned Karl Koch invests his heritage in a flat and a home computer. At first he dials up to internal linkbulletin boards to discuss internal linkconspiracy theories inspired by his favorite novel, R.A. Wilson’s internal linkIlluminatus“, but soon he and his friend David start breaking into government and military computers. Pepe, one of Karl’s rather criminal acquaintances senses that there is money in computer cracking – he travels to east Berlin and tries to contact the KGB.

      re: the U.S. Government:

      “What would you think of a man who not only kept an arsenal in his home, but was collecting at enormous financial sacrifice a second arsenal to protect the first one? What would you say if this man so frightened his neighbors that they in turn were collecting weapons to protect themselves from him? What if this man spent ten times as much money on his expensive weapons as he did on the education of his children? What if one of his children criticized his hobby and he called that child a traitor and a bum and disowned him? And he took another child who obeyed him faithfully and armed that child and sent it out into the world to attack neighbors? What would you say about a man who introduces poisons into the internal linkwater he drinks and the air he breathes? What if this man not only is feuding with the people on his block but involves himself in the quarrels of others in distant parts of the city and even in the suburbs? Such a man would clearly be a  paranoid internal linkschizophrenic… with homicidal tendencies.”

      This mass hysteria I see as part of the Future Shock (ref internal linkAlvin Toffler book ) of our accelerated social destabilization as “life as we know it” vanishes and gets replaced more and more by “life as we used to read it in internal linkscience-fiction.” Naive people have grown terrorized by text books, by pop music, by games, and even by school-teachers (the most inoffensive persons around); accusations of “Satanism” have targeted all of these, as you will see in Dr. Victor’s book. The whole modern (or post-modern) world seems incomprehensible, and therefore sinister, to millions of our citizens.

      Q. How has the internal linkInternet changed your life?

      RAW. It has felt like a neurological internal linkquantum jump. Not only does the word-internal linkprocessing software make my compulsive rewriting a lot easier than if I still had to cut my words on rocks or use a typewriter or retreat to similar barbarism, but the e-mail function provides most of my social life since I became “disabled.” I do most of my research on the World Wide Web, get my answer in minutes and don’t have to hunt laboriously through my internal linklibrary for hours. It has improved my life a thousand ways. I also have a notion that Internet will eventually replace government.
