...So, where were we?
Oh, yeah. So, anyway, I'd found RAW, was very impressed by his resume. I put down the first book of his which I'd been reading (Prometheus Rising) and went over to his Illuminatus! Trilogy. To be honest, "Prometheus" was getting a bit overwhelming, and I felt I'd got as much as I could out of it by just reading without actually doing the exercises in the book.
SO-- I pick up "Illuminatus", and start to r---- What. In. The. %&@#??? The book jumps from 1st person, to 3rd person, and back again with no warning or segue; a flashback for one character may turn into a present-day narrative for an entirely different character right in mid-sentence. Not to mention the subject matter itself is more than a bit esoteric at times.
But, I persevered. Hell, I had little choice- for some reason, I couldn't put the book down. Despite the confusing, brain-juggling manner in which it was written, it was a story which drew me in instantly. When I eventually did put the book aside, it was to read more of RAW's ideas (and his expounding on the ideas of others). As I did this, things began to get a bit clearer.
Next time: Reality tunnels, 'Maybe' Logic, General Semantics, and who the hell is reading this book, anyway?
