RAW

All rigid Belief Systems (B.S.) censor and warp the processes of perception, thought and even empathy. They literally make people behave like badly-wired robots.



-Robert Anton Wilson

Good interview. A coupla other good quotes in there too.

I have wondered what the old coot was up to these days.

RAW quotations

Yeah, he's very quotable.

It seems like he won't be with us that much longer. What a loss for us. We need more exemplars of the human ability to continue to think and learn once school and job training no longer demand it.

My own opinion is that belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence. The more certitude one assumes, the less there is left to think about, and a person sure of everything would never have any need to think about anything and might be considered clinically dead under current medical standards, where absence of brain activity is taken to mean that life has ended.

haha! gotta love old Bob.

I'm seriously considering voting for him as write-in for governor of California. I don't usually vote for "fringe candidates" no matter how much I like their politics, but when the list of candidates has become too outlandish to even attempt to parody (you try it!) it's time to bring in the Guns and Dope party.
