? Logic ?

Spiritual Videos: SPIRITube

Clips in this video from the documentary 'Maybe Logic - The Lives and Ideas of Robert Anton Wilson'. (Robert Anton Wilson the writer of 'Cosmic Trigger' and co-writer of 'Illuminatus!') Opening music excerpt: Astralasia's 'Seven Pointed Star (Astral Dub Seventh Dream) The following from Robert Anton Wilson in a 1977 article in Fortean Times Issue 23: On 23 July 1973, I had the impression that I was being contacted by some sort of advanced intellect from the system of the double star Sirius. I have had odd psychic experiences of that sort for many years, and I always record them carefully, but refuse to take any of them literally, until or unless supporting evidence of an objective nature turns up. This particular experience, however, was especially staggering, both intellectually and emotionally, so I spent the rest of the day at the nearest large library researching Sirius. I found, among other things, that 23 July is very closely associated with that star. On 23 July, ancient Egyptian priests began a series of rituals to Sirius, continuing until 8 September. Since Sirius is known as the Dog Star, being in the constellation Canis Major, the period 23 July - 8 September became known as the dog days. My psychic Contact experience continued, off and on, for nearly two years, until October 1974, after which I forcibly terminated it by sheer stubborn willpower (I was getting tired of wondering whether I was specially selected for a Great Mission of interstellar import, or was just going crazy). After two years of philosophic mulling on the subject (late 1974 - early 1976), I finally decided to tune in one more time to the SiriusEarth transmissions, and try to produce something objective. On 23 July 1976, using a battery of yogic and shamanic techniques, I opened myself to another blast of Cosmic Wisdom and told the Transmitters that I wanted something objective this time around. The next week, Time magazine published a full-page review of Robert KG Temples The Sirius Mystery, which claims that contact between Earth and Sirius occurred around 4500 BC in the Near East. The 23 July festivals in Egypt were part of Temples evidence, but I was more amused and impressed by his middle initials, K.G., since Kallisti Gold is the brand of very expensive marijuana smoked by the hero of Illuminatus!. The same week as that issue of Time, i.e. still one week after my 23rd experiment, Rolling Stone published a full-page advertisement for a German Rock group called Ramses. One of the group was named Winifred, which is the name of one of the four German Rock musicians in Illuminatus!, and the advertisement included a large pyramid with an eye atop it, the symbol of the Illuminati. Coincidence? Synchronicity? Higher Intelligence? Higher Idiocy? Of course, the eye on the pyramid was a favourite symbol of Aleister Crowley, who called himself Epopt of the Illuminati, and subtitled his magazine, The Equinox, A Review of Scientific Illuminism. And 2/3 equals .66666666 etc. Crowleys magick number repeated endlessly. Readers of this piece might find it amusing to skim through The Magical Revival and Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God, two books by Kenneth Grant, a former student of Crowleys (and note the initials K.G. again!). You will find numerous references, cloudy and occult, linking Crowley in some unspecified way with Sirius. The actor who played Padre Pederastia in the National Theatre production of Illuminatus! informed me that he once met Crowley on a train. Mere coincidence, if you prefer. But the second night of the National Theatre run, the actors cajoled me into doing a walk-on as an extra in the Black Mass scene. And, dear brothers and sisters, that is how I found myself, stark naked, on the stage of the National Theatre, bawling Crowleys slogan Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law, under the patronage of Her Majesty the Queen. As a fortean, I am, of course, an ontological agnostic and I never believe anything literally. But I will never cease to wonder how much of this was programmed by Uncle Aleister before I was ever born, and Im sure that last bit, my one moment on the stage of the National Theatre, was entirely Crowleys work. If you look up Crowleys Confessions, youll find that he began the study of magick in 1898, at the age of 23.

While half pissed, am seeing gusts of Crowley, illuminati and the gnostic crew that seems like the best shot in the presenting debacle of the human race.

The stuff I like is within the many millenia streaming, brought to life in this fractious age.

I used to think that I could be immortal by kicking ass and saving a soul or two. My! What a busy chap.

Either my contribution is going to suffer a future examination and valued, I will be dead within 40 years, or I survive pastorally, in happiness, Joy and love in great or small measure.

Leonard Cohen sang that God was taken joyous by few, just swap 'path' for 'god' and down you go to the yellow brick road to search for the wizard of oz. Just like Oz, god is also a disapointment.

But also, very vulnerably, human.

I'm with Robt Anton Wilson in taking nothing literally. So, if God is a disappointment, it's only by choice.

Mystifying, this life. I blame God for nothing.

I love watching Bob tell his tales. There's something cosmically reassuring, feather light, and soul deep.

Blame god for 'nothing.'Broke the velvetine patter, got: he resides in being, god is the entirety of being in every universe in eternity. Nothing is not god, nothing is the antithesis of god that is necessary for the being of god.

Nothing IS absolute.

The generis sui is magnificently sat at the head of the bounteous table. No hurry? Can't run away from it. Enjoy the choice of running with siberian wolves or making a family home in Europe. Allah is great, Allah provides. Demonstrate the truth that, trusting in allah, all the obstacles fall away. Follow the azure fields of lavender, eyes wide shut, nose sniffing greedily, tongue at the extremities of taste. The good always die young, stop spoon-feeding lies to the afghan lads, make the generals and the heads of state pay for their obscenities.

Where is it written that all obstacles fall away? If the living were always easy, summertime, where's the fun in that? There'd only be the spoilt, with even more egregious complaints.

Most obstacles arise from man's inhumanity...to man and to nature.

The tv just said there's 100,000+ dead in the Haitian quake. What a shame it takes such tragedy to bring out the best in the collective people of the world. At least it reveals the evidence for it.

You sound depressed; perhaps it is grace that mankind is seeking in the visages of each stranger and each acquaintance. Humanity can manage the aportionning of grace as Tao remains inert and impartial to providence and good luck. Ironically I assume you are deriving fun from tramelling vicissitudes. Deep deep down, emerged from the dank cave, pink tastes sea air, the breakers on the hissing shore and the merger of sea and shore. Upon which spectacle, the roast and roar of the thing among all things requiring idolatory: the summer sun. Let the living be easy.

By all means.

~There is no God and we are his prophets.~

-Cormac McCarthy-

Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth by means of his will is a magus and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom



'The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them'.....'Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.'.....'In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.'.....'War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.' George Orwell
