Publisher's Summary

The great modern classic of a brilliant rebel's personal exploration into the nature of consciousness.
"Cosmic Trigger deals with a process of deliberately induced brain change. This process is called 'initiation' or 'vision quest' in many traditional societies and can loosely be considered some dangerous variety of self-psychotherapy in modern terminology. I do not recommend it for everybody...briefly, the main thing I learned in my experiments is that 'reality' is always plural and mutable." (Robert Anton Wilson, from the preface)
Narration by Oliver Senton, "Robert Anton Wilson" in Daisy Eris Campbell's stage production of Cosmic Trigger.
Based on The Robert Anton Wilson Trust Authorized Hilaritas Press Edition.
Published by Hilaritas Press.

Great content, bad narrator

I tried to keep an open mind about the narrator, I really did. All I wanted to do was focus on the substance of the book. Unfortunately, I couldn't. If I said the narrator didn't ruin this book for me I'd be lying.

Like my Uncle Guiseppe dropped LSD and then read to me for 8 hrs. Good narrator and a good book. Bad match though.

Illuminations

A wonderful journey through the 1960/70s counter occulture featuring Tim Leary, Alan Watts, Ken Campbell and The Illuminates. RAW describes his personal progression through magick and conciousness changing practice with heart and humour. A great read.
