A 'Cosmic Trigger' question

I'm reading Wilson's Cosmic Trigger 2 (and I've finally changed the "What I'm Reading" to reflect what I'm actually reading), but that prompts a question. The Cosmic Trigger books, I think it's safe to say, are favorites of RAW fans. Does anyone know whether Wilson started (or planned) a fourth one?

I have seen zero references from RAW on this. He made many references to books he'd like to write, but I've never seen a CT4.

Tale of the Tribe seems to have been his focus in the three years before he died.

He once said he wanted to write a book on Immortality called Death Shall Have No Dominion. He also once said he'd like to write an epic poem on Evolution.

Among other projects.

Bride of Illuminatus? Who knows if the "estate" has his first inchoate stabs at it? When Shea died he gradually lost interest.

I think the book Tale of the Tribe seemed Bob's focus from, say, 1998 to 2003 when he decided he didn't have enough energy to finish it.
