Read full description of the books Cosmic Trigger 2: Down to Earth:I read the first Cosmic Trigger a bit over a decade ago, and was wary of reading the second part, which RAW wrote in the late 80s. The narrative is largely autobiographical (like the first Cosmic Trigger) but the chronology is spliced up, i.e., one chapter is from 1955, the next from 1989, the next from 1967, etc. RAW does this to perhaps emphasis the multiplicity of possibly views and to reposition events and ideas for the weird synergy that re-contextualization brings. This method was probably influenced both by Joyce's multi-narrative Ulysses and the scatter-brained nature of modern A.D.D.-fraught, technologically enhanced life. Oh, and drugs.
RAW is the most consistently intriguing and entertaining philosopher (or Pop Philosopher if you are being narrowly academic) of the last 50 years. His scope of interests and knowledge is honestly inspiring, and much like the first Cosmic Trigger (and the other RAW books I've read) you come away from it changed - whether slightly (if, like me, you were moderately versed in RAW's thought), or hugely changed (if this was your first experience) but changed in your perspective of the world, undeniably and irrevocably. Hail Eris, indeed.
Read information about the authorRobert Anton Wilson became, at various times, an American novelist, essayist, philosopher, polymath, psychonaut, futurist, libertarian and self-described agnostic mystic. Recognized as an Episkopos, Pope, and Saint of Discordianism by Discordians who care to label him as such, Wilson helped publicize the group/religion/melee through his writings, interviews, and strolls.
He described his work as an "attempt to break down conditioned associations, to look at the world in a new way, with many models recognized as models or maps, and no one model elevated to the truth."
"My goal is to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone but agnosticism about everything."
