Robert Anton Wilson Explains.. Everything
From the author of the legendary underground classic The Illuminatus! Trilogy and many other works comes an unprecedented event: a once-in-a-lifetime meeting with Robert Anton Wilson - captured live on audio. Robert Anton Wilson Explains Everything (or Old Bob Exposes His Ignorance) brings us face to face with one of the most unconventional and brilliant writers of our time, affording listeners an inside view of this enigmatic (and sometimes misunderstood) novelist, visionary, and "stand-up comic for the mystically inclined." In these engrossing sessions of conversation, Robert Anton Wilson delves into such topics as futurist psychology, the paranormal, God, political conspiracies (real and imagined), the Eight Stages of Consciousness and how to obtain them, life extension and space migration, the origins of language, guerrilla ontology, and much more. Wilson also offers a rare glimpse into his early years growing up in an Irish-American ghetto of New York, his friendship with Timothy Leary, his investigations into various magicks - plus a mind-expanding exploration of Wilson's newest insights into the state of the human predicament. RINF.COM is sure that all R.A.W. fans will enjoy this.. why not let us know what you think in Media Hijack.

Evading Dogmatic Medicine
Robert Anton Wilson writes: "Everybody has their own special nightmare, their private version of living in a Kafka novel. Some worry that they might fall through a timewarp and land in the hands of the Gestapo or the KGB. Others live in perpetual anxiety about an IRS audit. In New York and New Jersey, most people have an acute terror about accidentally saying or doing something that annoys the Mafia. Californians dread losing their temper and thereby appearing "unmellow," which they evidently believe might lead to their getting deported back to the U.S. mainland."
