Robert Anton Wilson Quotes

Dedroidify RAW page
This is a temporary page that will get better with time, just wanted to group quotes and the on-site dedroidify pages on one page as soon as possible, added some more quotes:

"'Is,' 'is.' 'is' — the idiocy of the word haunts me. If it were abolished, human thought might begin to make sense. I don't know what anything 'is'; I only know how it seems to me at this moment."
The Historical Illuminatus as spoken by Sigismundo Celine

The Western World has been brainwashed by Aristotle for the last 2,500 years. The unconscious, not quite articulate, belief of most Occidentals is that there is one map which adequately represents reality. By sheer good luck, every Occidental thinks he or she has the map that fits.
Guerrilla ontology, to me, involves shaking up that certainty. I use what in modern physics is called the "multi-model" approach, which is the idea that there is more than one model to cover a given set of facts. As I've said, novel writing involves learning to think like other people. My novels are written so as to force the reader to see things through different reality grids rather than through a single grid. It's important to abolish the unconscious dogmatism that makes people think their way of looking at reality is the only sane way of viewing the world.
My goal is to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone, but agnosticism about everything. If one can only see things according to one's own belief system, one is destined to become virtually deaf, dumb, and blind. It's only possible to see people when one is able to see the world as others see it. That's what guerrilla ontology is — breaking down this one-model view and giving people a multi-model perspective.
(from Searching For Cosmic Intelligence" - interview by Jeffrey Elliot)

Whatever the Thinker thinks, the Prover will prove. And if the Thinker thinks passionately enough, the Prover will prove the thought so conclusively that you will never talk a person out of such a belief, even if it is something as remarkable as the notion that there is a gaseous vertebrate of astronomical heft ("GOD") who will spend all eternity torturing people who do not believe in his religion.

A poll taking by the wallstreet journal and the ny times and the christian science monitor, together they showed that 75 percent of the public doesn't believe what they read in the newspapers anymore, the percentage who don't believe what they see on tv news is even higher, it's like 85 percent.
We all know the bastards are lying to us and they get away with it because people are used to yes or no, every 4 years to give us the sense that democracy still exists they give us 2 goddamn motherfucking liars, I like shakespearian english, down to earth english that describes what I'm talking about. I don't like prissy little euphemisms, so they give us 2 goddamn motherfucking lying bastards sons of bitches and they say choose between them you are free, you can have a choice, which lying bastard do you prefer to the other lying bastard?

Obviously, the faster we process information, the more rich and complex our models or glosses — our reality-tunnels — will become. Resistance to new information, however, has a strong neurological foundation in all animals, as indicated by studies of imprinting and conditioning. Most animals, including most domesticated primates (humans) show a truly staggering ability to "ignore" certain kinds of information — that which does not "fit" their imprinted/conditioned reality-tunnel. We generally call this "conservatism" or "stupidity", but it appears in all parts of the political spectrum, and in learned societies as well as in the Ku Klux Klan. (from Quantum Psychology)

Jackie Moon: Love me Sexy


Jackie Moon: Love me Sexy
While driving to Holland me & a buddy heard this crazy Barry White type funny luuuv song on the radio called "Love me sexy" by Jackie Moon. The host said he was added to the line-up of a festival called Rock Werchter in Belgium. Google searches didn't help much, couldn't find the song on limewire, so I gave up. Today I heard it on the radio again, the hosts again said he's coming to Werchter & I had to have it. So I looked on YouTube. I guess Jackie Moon won't be coming to Werchter, and the radio guys at Stubru are doing one of their jokes again :p cause Jackie Moon is nobody less than one of my favorite comedians Will Ferrell :p LOL

Framing Muslims and Locking Up Their Money

by Cynthia McKinney
The U.S. government has for years been engaged in a witch hunt against Muslim charities, seizing assets and persons on little or manufactured evidence of "terrorist" activities. Meanwhile, blatant spying on behalf of Israel goes unprosecuted, and is even rewarded with promotions to the highest, most sensitive levels of government. Human rights cease to exist in a legal free-fire zone in which all things Muslim or Arab are deemed subversive. All pretense of constitutional government vanishes when institutions and individuals are targeted based on ethnicity and religion. The real conspiracy against so-called "American values" is headquartered in U.S. law enforcement and "security" agencies that "wreak fear and terror inside this country's Muslim community."

Tutankhamen's face

Tutankhamen The Golden Boy, Then And Now
The mummy of Tutankhamen was shown off to the public for the first time in 85 years this week. however, a few years ago it underwent a CAT scan and here we see a representation of what he looked liked, based on reconstruction from his skull.

I love theories about Tutankhamen, Maurice Cotterell's research indicates he might have been an enlightened master and left loads of clues in his tomb concerning the Sunspot Cycle and end of 2012. Just like Pacal from the Mayas. Then you can discuss wether they were spiritually enlightened or used psychedelics to acquire the knowledge. Others may discard both as merely 'bloodline'. etc, etc.

US Snake Invasion Global Warming Panic!

Pythons Could Slither North as Climate Warms
Hehe, just kidding... oh noes "global warming" is sending snakes to North America to kill adult humans.

The pythons, which can grow more then 20 feet long and weight more than 250 pounds, are strangling and gulping down everything from endangered rodents to deer, panther cubs, opossums and alligators. "This is a quantum leap" in snake size, said Rodda. "The largest snake in North America is the bull snake or indigo snake, neither of which exceeds nine feet." Burmese pythons, a subspecies of the Indian python, can take in much larger prey than any North American native snake species. "Alligators eat them and they eat alligators." Cool :p
