email to the Universe in paperback.


In the UK I found it easier to use Amazon - and make sure you get the new edition (2017) from Hilaritas Press, as the old edition from 2005 still appears as available.   Use this link for UK.

Team Human - It's All Happening

Intelligent conversation for people with an attention span that exceeds 140 characters.


Zach Leary has run a podcast for some time - It's All Happening. 

Early on (30 July 2015, Episode 4) he interviewed Douglas Rushkoff, in a fascinating hour of conversation.



Recently, Douglas Rushkoff returned (27 January 2017), to do the first half of a conversation (Episode 76) that they then continued on his own podcast site, at Team Human.    

Find that second part, here.  (Episode 22, 1 February 2017)

Just an email to the universe

Hilaritas Press continues publishing wonderful new editions of many of Bob's books.


The latest one is "email to the universe" - a newly proofread edition, with an added Intro, an Afterword by Paul Krassner, new illustrations, a new cover.    Read more about it, or buy the ebook, here.

IMPortant note:   Only the Kindle edition is available, at the moment, so any offers of paperback copies you see on Amazon will be the old edition from New Falcon.   Best to wait, if you want a paperback copy of this smart new edition from Hilaritas.

NO PRESIDENT


"There is no governor present anywhere"
Chuang Tzu

There is no governor anywhere; you are all absolutely free. There is no restraint that cannot be escaped. We are all absolutely free. If everybody could go into dhyana at will, nobody could be controlled — by fear of prison, by fear of whips or electroshock, by fear of death, even. All existing society is based on keeping those fears alive, to control the masses. Ten people who know would be more dangerous than a million armed anarchists.”

― Robert Anton Wilson,

Daisy Hilarious



Daisy Eris Campbell offers a breathlessly hilarious monologue on The Odditorium podcast. (no 34).

Daisy Campbell, (daughter of the performer Ken Campbell) takes us on a rollercoaster adventure exploring the ancient practise of gastromancy – divination from the stomach. It’s one of the most entertaining but weirdest talks we’ve ever had on the Odditorium so hang in there! Meanwhile in the studio, the two Davids appear to be having a spot of bother with the disembodied voice of Aleister Crowley.
Daisy's piece starts four minutes in...

Amor et Hilaritas!

2023 - The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu (sic)


Well we're back again,
They never kicked us out,
twenty thousand years of 
SHOUT SHOUT SHOUT

Down through the epochs and out across the continents, generation upon generation of the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu have told variants of the same story - an end of days story, a final chapter story. But with one hope, even if the hope at times seems forlorn.

The story contained in this trilogy is the latest telling. Here it is presented as a utopian costume drama, set in the near future, written in the recent past.
Read with care.
REMEMBERED - TOLD - TRANSCRIBED for K 2 Plant Hire Ltd.

Set for publication on 23 August 2017 - through Faber & Faber

One Last Chance - auction of RAW memorabilia

Long term students of RAW, members of the Maybe Logic Academy, and even subscribers to this blog, will know about the auctions done in Bob's last few months, to help with his medical expenses, etc.

Bob Campbell devised a unique currency for RAW to sign (and make 'real') which got sold off;  Old Bob sold off various of his Tarot packs, card by card; most interestingly (particularly if you are into psychometry), he began to sell of bits and pieces from his home - T-shirts, magazines, art, trinkets, etc.

[Note: the links to eBay auctions, in the above mentioned posts from 2006, will no longer work]

Well, if you missed those events, you get a second chance - because RAW's daughter Christine has decided to put a few more of his personal possessions up for auction - and you can tune into the action here.


More items will apparently get added over the coming days.

RIP RAW 111

It seems hard to believe that RAW died ten years ago, on 11/1 (UK) or 1/11 (US).   He died on Albert Hoffman's 101st birthday (when Albert was still alive and well) so that makes this Hofmann's 111th birthday.

111 appears repeatedly in Finnegans Wake, where it refers to the feminine principle, Anna Livia Plurabelle, often written as ALP (which cabalistically adds up to 111).   It seems entirely appropriate for Finnegans Wake to receive a reference (given the latest gossip) as the male hero, HCE, is guilty of watching two girls peeing in the park (not the most common sub-plot in a novel).  Most of the  current political news makes the Illuminatus! trilogy seem more like fact than fiction.     Uncanny.       RIP RAW.        Dove Sta Memoria.

Don't hold your breath in Santa Cruz

Hail Eris
It seems as though the plan to put on the Cosmic Trigger play in Santa Cruz - originally announced for this year - has gone on hold, (for a variety of reasons) but Daisy Eris Campbell may well visit the USA to promote the project.

Mama Sutra

The good news remains that the production will make an appearance in London, in May 2017.  

21 performances at The Cockpit Theatre.



Do whatever it takes to get to see this production!

From the current newsletter:

"Hello you lovely Discordians,

*ANNOUNCEMENT RE SANTA CRUZ PILGRIMAGE*

So yes, I have publicly announced on at least 23 occasions that we would be making a pilgrimage to Santa Cruz, where Robert Anton Wilson lived and died, this year, the 10 year anniversary of his death.

This kind of public declaration worked a treat for pulling the Cosmic Trigger in Liverpool on November 23rd 2014, but that's the thing with Cosmic Triggers - they have a tendency to go off in your hand. And I think, bathed in the glory of our last adventure, I got a little trigger happy.

We're not - we now realise - at the Triggering phase when it comes to Santa Cruz. We are still very much in The Finding The Others phase.

So instead I'll come to the US this summer to stir up enthusiasm for a future happening. Tell me Stateside Dwellers; where shall I enthuse, who shall I meet, how shall we scheme? I'm thinking 13-23rd July to coincide with Robert Anton Wilson Day and the start of the Dog Days. But I'll come whenever you call.

I'm truly sorry to disappoint anyone who was all set for the Santa Cruz pilgrimage performance - but let's meet up when I'm there, and before you know it we'll be happily pulling Cosmic Triggers together."
