Hail Eris [Jan. 12th, 2007|01:10 am]

I'm pleasantly surprised by how many people on my friends list mentioned the death of Robert Anton Wilson.

I haven't read a ton of his stuff, but Schrodinger's Cat and The Illuminatus! Trilogy had a profound affect on me when I read them in high school.

It was through him that I found out about Discordianism. And even though it's a joke dressed up as a religion (or vice versa), it's still drastically influenced my life in not-so-subtle ways...

*getting involved in the Knightood of BUh
*embracing the tenants of improv
*accepting that we create our own reality, and enjoying that.

That's part of how and why No Pants Day became a success. It became real because we said it was real, and the force of our conviction made it so.

Anyhow, R.A.W. was a cool dude.
