John Higgs on RAW at the London Fortean event

The John Higgs lecture on Robert Anton Wilson at the London Fortean Society's event last month has been posted on YouTube. (The Daisy Campbell segment still is not up, but I'll do a follow-up post when it becomes available.)

The Higgs segment is about 47 minutes long. John talks for about 25-30 minutes to explain why RAW is still relevant, discoursing on model agnosticism and reality tunnels, and making the case for RAW in a calm, rational, witty manner. He then takes questions. His segment ends when he calls up Jonathan Harris onstage for a money-burning moment. (I blogged about that segment on Oct. 27.)

It's an interesting video. I agree that some of the old book covers aren't the best. The other thing about some of the old books is that the illustrations seem awful to me - this goes for other New Falcon publications. The younger generations are very graphically astute. John comes across as a very nice guy but I don't agree that Bob started writing for money. He once said that he wrote his first (unpublished) novel at the ridiculous age of 11 or 12?

Hopefully people like Tom and John are at the forefront of a successful RAW revival!
