The government, as the principal liar of the 1960's was, of course, more deluded than anyone else, since its reality-map had become a classic disinformation system.
These words, as written by Robert A. Wilson in his Cosmic Trigger, Volume I, are as valid today as back in the 60's when applied to our current government.
It was with some sadness that I learned of the passing of Robert A. Wilson this morning. Much like the Dadaists, Wilson helped to enlarge the reality tunnel in which I now reside. And he did it mischeiviously and most always very entertainingly. Yet his messages were not only thought provoking, they were deadly serious.
In news of his passing, as reported in an AP press release, "Mr. Wilson contended that people should never rule out any possibility, including that lasagna might fly."
As also revealed in that same article, "in his last post on his personal blog, he wrote: 'I don't see how to take death seriously. I look forward without dogmatic optimism, but without dread. I love you all and I deeply implore you to keep the lasagna flying' "
(Pictured above, Dada and Sammy Cincos, shortly after learning of Robert Anton Wilson's death earlier this morning. Here Sam is learning of the influence R.A.Wilson had on his "dad" who is explaining to Sammy in the most Wilsonesque disalarming way as he can, "Reconciliation between 'America the Beautiful' and 'America, the global asshole' is creating a growing cognitive dissonance all Americans will be inevitably forced to reconcile. By what means is yet to be known, Sammy," to which Sammy replied by getting a ball, walking to his doggie door and asking, "Can we go toss a few now?" I think Wilson would have appreciated Sam's reaction.)
