Oz Fritz and the Overweening Generalist

Oz Fritz and Michael Johnson continue to explore concepts taken up by Robert Anton Wilson and Timothy Leary in the 1970s.

Oz has weighed in on his The Oz Mix blog with two new postings, one on space migration and one on life extension. 

Incidentally, Oz says exploration of inner space doesn't require artificial help:

Also would like to make it very clear that I'm am absolutely not talking about, alluding to, or suggesting using drugs of any kind in any way. Timothy Leary's name and reputation often incurs a reflexive association with LSD advocacy due to a thick fog of media gloss still looming over his name in repressive, conservative circles, yet he clearly had moved on in later life. LSD can act like an atomic explosion on the nervous system and this analogy holds true with potentially lethal radioactive fallout.

Meanwhile, Michael Johnson, who already seems smart enough without any help, writes about his researches into intelligence increase.

Muchas gracias from the OG too, Tom. And 'tis an honor to be mentioned along with the Oz Fritz, who seems some sorta sound-semiotic-space sorcerer.
