Psychedelic Salon RAW Podcast “The Acceleration of Knowledge”

Psychedelic Salon Robert Anton Wilson Podcast “The Acceleration of Knowledge”

[After giving a brief overview of history]
"So there is a definite acceleration in history."

"If you take history as starting on this planet at midnight and you assume the life of the planet is 15 billion years, which is the estimated life of a G-type star, it is now eight o’clock in the morning, and it’s time for us to wake up."

"There was only one Buddha twenty-five hundred years ago, and now you meet five or ten Buddhas in every city you go to."

"Knowledge, wherever it’s discovered, is traveling over the whole world faster and faster. So the movement of knowledge and power from East to West over the last several thousand years has now become an oscillation in which the knowledge is circling the globe faster and faster."

"The general pattern is that religious stupidity exists for millenniums, political stupidity exists for centuries, scientific stupidity exists only for generations before it gets cured."

"No matter what reality tunnel you live in, the world will organize itself in your perceptions to be compatible with that reality tunnel."

"So quantum physics turned out to be saying exactly the same thing that the psychedelic revolution was saying, that there is no objective reality separate from us. All we know is the reality that we are co-creators of. The reality perceived, conceived, created, put together by our nervous systems."
