This is something I'm crossposting:

I guess no one here has mentioned it, but yesterday, Robert Anton Wilson died.



I don't know what I can say about it.

I was in a rare position of overseeing a commercial on TV the other day, but it was definitely worth it. It was for Dr. Pepper, and apparently they're bringing in some new draw that the soda has 23 flavors (I don't see what that means exactly, but it's irrelevant.) Anyway, the commercial basically consists of a song with only the words "twenty-three twenty-three twenty-three twenty-three" over and over again whilst showing a bunch of 23ist stuff. Has anyone seen it? I'm trying to find it online, but am having no luck. If I see it myself I'll record it on my digital camera and put it on youtube, but I'm afraid it'll be bootleg-ish quality.

Did anyone see the special on the History Channel on The Gospel of Judas? The gospel portrays Judas as a heroic figure and Jesus wanted to be crucified. Anyway, at one point the show is re-enacting part of the gospel, and Jesus is saying to Judas that "his star would shine the brightest" and said "Lift up your eyes and look at the cloud and the light within it and the stars surrounding it. The star that leads the way is your star" and he points upward and they pan to the sky, which shows what looks like, when I compare it to the image on wikipedia, Sirius and its surrounding constellations.

beandipvagrant: Curious.

I have just finished reading the Illuminatus! Trilogy, which I'm sure you know is fantastic. While reading the wikipedia article on it, I became dismayed... well I'll let you read for it for yourself.


Does anyone know where the lost "Prologue" and "what has gone before" sections might be found on-line?
Thank you.

kuranes: The Number 23

I came across this on IMDB. Anyone heard of it?

Found an article on it here too http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire/index.php?category=3&id=34344

I'm quite interested, to say the least.

ankh_f_n_khonsu: The Singularity: No Room for Spiritualism?

"Un-initiated" readers may see here for an introduction. Wiki also has a fantastic entry on the Technological Singularity.

Interested viewers can find a reader of Singularity-relevant literature here.

I'd like to get other's opinions on this subject.

A recent thread at singularity_now has degraded into a pool of vomit.

Read more...Collapse )

So, with all that background, what do folks over here think?

ankh_f_n_khonsu: TotT (wk. 1 & 2) -

Well, the class has nearly completed two full weeks, so it seemed time for a summary.

The first week's assignments included the first few pages of Finnegan's Wake, a few of Pound's Cantos, and 'How to Read/How to Think', from Coincidance.

The second week's assignments included a few more Cantos, The Chinese Written Character, and a discussion on dominant ideogrammatic versus dominant alphabetic imprints. A recent study on eye saccades dove-tailed nicely.

Some members have already had flare-ups of insecurities, prompting others to begin bemoaning 'intellectual masturbation'. Apparently catering to mediocrity sits better with many domesticated primates. Others have begun whining because some have 'higher post counts' than they do. I think this seems unfortunate and unnecessary.

Pope Wilson has been MIA for a few days. No one has mentioned it, but I'm certain several of us have noticed. I hope all remains well.

We have been forbidden to post content from the class for public use, but if you would like more specific details, and I can give them, I would be more than happy to provide what I can.

The E-Prime (E') challenge has proceeded nicely. Some have opted for E-Choice, which appears to be a watered-down, more accessible version. It also seems easier to implement into colloquial dialogue.

ankh_f_n_khonsu: MLA Courses -

Have any of you taken courses at the MLA? If so, which? What were your impressions of the process, content and personal impact?

I've registered for Wilson's "Tale of the Tribe", and I also plan on taking R.U. Sirius' "Question Authority/Challenge Authority" in October. These will be my first MLA courses, but long over-due.

Thanks for creating this community.

I'm anxiously waiting for the third installment of Historical Illuminatus Chronicles, Nature's God, to be re-released.

It's been out-of-print for years now. I was able to find a copy of both one and two, but the third remained elusive until I heard that New Falcon was going to re-release them anyway (which means they'll probably still be hard to find and poorly edited).
