    About “Robert Anton Wilson Christopher S. Hyatt

    1. Robert Anton Wilson Christopher S. Hyatt says:

      Robert Anton Wilson became, at various times, an American novelist, essayist, philosopher, polymath, psychonaut, futurist, libertarian and self described agnostic mystic Recognized as an Episkopos, Pope, and Saint of Discordianism by Discordians who care to label him as such, Wilson helped publicize the group religion melee through his writings, interviews, and strolls.He described his work as an attempt to break down conditioned associations, to look at the world in a new way, with many models recognized as models or maps, and no one model elevated to the truth My goal is to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone but agnosticism about everything.

    1. This may be heresy, but I think I enjoyed CT2 slightly more than the first one. Like the title suggests, the sequel is indeed more down to earth and discusses RAW's childhood, his college years, his years in Ireland - essentially, many of his other life experiences that were more grounded than the famous way out stuff he recounts in CT1.Crucially, I think I'd recommend CT2 more readily to the average reader than CT1 because it covers more universal themes that don't push the skepticism too hard [...]

    2. I read the first Cosmic Trigger a bit over a decade ago, and was wary of reading the second part, which RAW wrote in the late 80s. The narrative is largely autobiographical (like the first Cosmic Trigger) but the chronology is spliced up, i.e one chapter is from 1955, the next from 1989, the next from 1967, etc. RAW does this to perhaps emphasis the multiplicity of possibly views and to reposition events and ideas for the weird synergy that re-contextualization brings. This method was probably i [...]

    3. Cosmic Trigger II: Down to Earth is the second book in the Cosmic Trigger trilogy, an autobiographical and philosophical work by Robert Anton Wilson. The book is broken down into ninety-four short chapters that focus on conspiracies, a cultural history of the Irish, the potential future in cyberspace, political injustices, his upbringing in the Catholic Church and more. The main themes of the book are presented in a nonlinear fashion; most of the chapters do not lead directly into each other.Uns [...]

    4. Reading the Comic Trigger books is like listening to one of Bob's hilarious talks. In this, volume 2, he lays down his rules for dealing with BS (i.e Belief Systems, dogmas, absolute truths, etc.), which are (1) never believe totally in someone else's BS and (2) never believe totally in your own BS.Bob spikes his observations on a mysterious suicide named Roberto Calvi and musings on a murdered baby in County Kerry, Ireland, with vignettes from his early life in Depression-era Brooklyn, his Iris [...]

    5. examiner/examiner/x-83So far I still haven't read any fiction by him, and suspect I wouldn't like it, whatever that's worth, but Robert Anton Wilson's Cosmic Trigger trilogy (called so I guess because all three books are autobiographically-based) is among my favorite works of writing. I just reread this one, volume two, which is the only one I have at present, having given those three books away as a birthday present to someone who may or may not love them quite so much as I. Sometimes this is h [...]

    6. It's not Cosmic Trigger 1. It felt like such a mishmash of ideas and writings that it was more a cash-grab. There didn't need to be a second Cosmic Trigger. Although it retains much of the RAW humor I enjoy, the paranoia and occult sensibilities were very '90's. I'm much more of a fan of the brain change LSD paranoia cosmic reality of the first. In fact of the synchronicity and connection to the Dogstar Sirius so important to the first he seemed to flippantly write off. It sort of diminish the c [...]

    7. i've never enjoyed coke, but my roommates at one time did. in fact, i came downstairs one morning to see my friend cutting a line on the last RAMBO (sXe band) album. this dude didn't know shit about punk and didn't know why i laughed so hard. it really made my day, though.he and my other roommate got into coke as a substitute for dope, which i suppose is good. i really got along with their dealer; he wasn't bullshitting me or anything cuz he knew i was never gonna buy anything from him. we got t [...]

    8. This book radically changed my life. It "allowed" me to have fun with philosophy and scientific thought. It got me to believe that I am, to a large degree, master of my own destiny. It was the first Wilson book I read, and I have devoured many afterwards. All of them are greatly recommended. If you want a great take on philosophy, and an interesting way to look at the world and yourself, this is for you.

    9. Many like. Me likey. This one was more political and autobiographical than the first, but I didn't mind that as my views are quite similar politically. There isn't much out there similar to this stuff. I haven't found anyone else who can tell it like it is (or like it seems to be) and remain optimistic.Where is the modern space migration dialogue? Have most of these topics died? Is everyone too busy refreshing Instagram now?

    10. This semi-autobiographical, semi-historical work juggles four or more non-convergent narrative lines – the death and investigation of Robert Calvi, the discovery and investigation of a dead baby in Kerry, Ireland, Wilson’s aborted suicide attempt, Wilson’s marriage. The resolution of each of these narratives comes at the end of the book, although they do not converge in space or time (parts of the book end in the present while other parts end in the past).

    11. Upon another go around with this book, I found myself enjoying it more. The strands of story Wilson weaves throughout are expertly crafted, and serve to keep the reader engaged and thinking. The revelations are not nearly as mystical as they are in volume 1- perhaps why I didn't like it as much the first time- but they are there, if you pay attention. not as entertaining as the first volume in the series, but still worth reading.

    12. I read this one immediately after finishing the first one, but for some reason won't find the first one to let me rate it (4 stars) could it beNSPIRACY?These books were written almost 20 years apart and you can pretty much tell.If you are interested in magic, reality, conspiracies, crowley, ufos and esoteric knowledge you probably have already read these

    13. More detail, referencing the first book, but opens up another Pandora's Box of stories, unsolved mysteries, and perspectives. Pieces apart pseudo-scientific methodologies that are taken for "fact", and alerts me to a term I have never used but always suspected was there, "reality-tunnels".Another great read by Mr. Wilson, in his own perspective and amusing manner.

    14. Wow, what to say? Conspiracies, real and imagined, the Vatican Bank, CIA cocaine smuggling, the Illuminati, telepathy - this book has it all, interleaved with autobiographical snippets and short segments that describe each time humanity's total amount of information doubled. Fascinating stuff by a fascinating writer.

    15. More of a personal story than the first Cosmic Trigger. Wilson recounts the stages of his own intellectual development, paralleling the geometric growth of total human knowledge in the second half of the 20th century.

    16. The whole cosmic trigger series is just an awesome read. Entertaining as a book can possibly be - and hilarious whilst intriguing. It really gets you to think about how you think, and the assumptions that people make. One of the greatest reading experiences I've had.

    17. I really enjoy a lot of the philosophies and conclusions RAW espouses, but the writing style sometimes really grates on me, and I'm interested in less autobiographical information. So I guess while I credit RAW for doing so, I wish the editor had smoked less pot

    18. Robert Anton Wilson. One of my favorite authors. "On a planet that increasingly resembles one huge Maximum Security prison, the only intelligent choice is to plan a jail break."

    19. here is a man whose imagination to supplant history, and dedication to warp his mind is unparalleled by his contemporaries.

    20. The book is interesting once you get about halfway in, but feels very fragmented and scatter brained compared to Vol 1.
