    Well-said.

    There’s a bit — I think it’s in Cosmic Trigger — where Bob tells a little Eastern philosophical story.

    The teacher holds up his cane and says, “What is this?”

    The acolyte says, “It is nothing.”

    The teacher whacks the acolyte with his cane and says “Then what just hit you?”

    A nice reminder that, during all our discussion of the nature of what is and isn’t real, there’s something to be said for pragmatism.

    Or, as Einstein put it, “Reality is an illusion — albeit a very persistent one.”

      Just a little nitpick, but that’s actually a popular misquote of Einstein–as mentioned on the Einstein wikiquote page, what Einstein actually said was “the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion”.

    So that’s what happened to Hopey!

    Robert Anton Wilson was kinda more George Carlin and less Timothy Leary than he sometimes appeared.

    For the record, Timothy Leary was frequently less Timothy Leary than he appeared, too.  :-)

    One might model Bob as dropping out occasionally.  He dropped out of Madison Avenue to go to a farm in Ohio, he dropped out of his job as Playboy to write in Mexico, he dropped out of Reagan’s America to go to Ireland, he dropped out of his hopes for Hollywood success to move to Capitola, etc.
