Robert Anton Wilson left his earthly vehicle for a late-model astral body, leaving the chaotic shores of Gaia for possibly the last time at 4:50 am (PST), on Thursday, January 11, 2007, with the Moon at 29 Degrees Libra.

According to a news source, Robert had been in ill health for the past several years. He suffered from the effects of post-polio syndrome which had severely damaged his legs and weakened his body. After a serious fall in June 2006, Robert was unable to walk, and confined to bed. Many of his closest family, friends and fans rallied around the author during his last several months to support him emotionally and even financially, for which Wilson was truly grateful.

Wilson, or RAW as he was popularly known, was a prolific author, penning a wide range of fascinating work during his long, and eventful life. Among his works left behind, are novels and essays.

In addition to being a celebrated author, he was also a philosopher, psychologist, futurist, anarchist, and conspiracy theorist.

bobcrowleyA small selection of Wilson’s best-known works include such popular books as:

  • The Illuminatus! Trilogy (1975) including the following:
  • (The Eye in the Pyramid)
  • (The Golden Apple)
  • (Leviathan)
  • The Cosmic Trigger I: Final Secret of the Illuminati (1977)
  • Schrodinger’s Cat (Trilogy, 1980-1981)
  • Masks of the Illuminati (1981)
  • The Historical Illuminatus Chronicles (1982-1991)
  • Prometheus Rising (1983, revised 1987), and
  • Quantum Psychology (1990)

He was also friends with the late Timothy Leary, with whom he collaborated on two books, Neuropolitics and The Game of Life.

I had the personal good fortune to meet Robert several times over the last several years. Here I go, taking an acid trip down memory lane …

How To Tell If You’ve Been Reincarnated

December 17th, 2006 by Voxx

houdinispiritIn recent years, I’ve noticed that reincarnation has become the cosmic dumping ground for whatever problems people have with their current lives.

Many times I’ve had people tell me that someone has suggested their life sucks because they did something bad in their last life, which I think is ridiculous.

In that spirit, I decided to have a bit of fun with the topic, so I’m posting some hints to make it easier for you to get a glimpse as to what it’s like to experience the sense of reincarnation for yourselves. Enjoy!

  • You still remember your old phone number from 1912.
  • You look for a Vomitorium when you’ve eaten too much.
  • You know Jesus’ middle name.
  • You remember how Hitler faked his death.
  • You can read Chinese the first time you see it.
  • You remember when your family moved after being warned about a flood by a kook named Noah.
  • Your appendix hurts whenever anybody mentions Houdini.
  • You scream, “Oh, the humanity!” whenever you see a picture of the Hindenburg.
  • You get somebody to taste your drink before you sip it.
  • You always sit with your back to the wall in an Italian restaurant.
  • You threaten to go back to your “other” family when your mom pisses you off.
  • You know they got it all wrong when you saw the movie, “Titanic”.
  • You know the real reason Napoleon used to hide his hand in his shirt.
  • You know the true identity of the “Black Dahlia” murderer.
  • You remember telling Einstein “It’s all relative,” before he was a physicist.
  • You remember Richard Dawkins when he was an apostle named “Thomas”.
