“Chapel Perilous, that vortex where cosmological speculations, coincidences, and paranoia seem to multiply and then collapse, compelling belief or lunacy, wisdom or agnosticism.” ~Robert Anton Wilson

    I'm not inellectual whatsoever, though I am quite pretentious at times so I have something of that quality. Wink

    Well, certainly glad to have you here.

    You seem to be versed in various modes of thought, surprising for someone so young. What led you to all this?

    Further collaboration will be interesting. Welcome to The Invisible Academy!

    What led me to all this? Your question reminds me of that exercise Robert Anton Wilson was fond of. It is a simulation of enlightenment.



    I actually did not read much of anything until I came across his book Prometheus Rising. Thus, my interest in contemporary philosophy was born. I smoked a lot of pot and got more and more involved in deep thinking. What provoked my curiosity in consciousness in the first place though, were my past experiences with sleep paralysis and out-of-body experiences, which we elaborated on in the other thread.

    Thank you for that. RAW is the man. It provides further evidence for my theory that Buddhism is best understood with a causal deterministic mindset.
