An effort at astral projection

Oz Fritz has a new blog post up about an effort by several Robert Anton Wilson fans to use astral projection to learn something about the Kennedy assassination and the Library of Alexandria. (I was invited to participate -- probably not because I actually know anything about astral projection -- and I've started reading a book Oz recommends on the subject, The Art and Practice of Astral Projection by Ophiel. It's available for Amazon Kindle.)

Oz is one of the members of the group who knows the most about this sort of thing, but Steve "Fly Agaric" Pratt has weighed in with a new blog post inspired by the effort. Steve asks skeptics to try to keep an open mind:

You may have noticed that i am talking about Astral Projection as if i know for sure that it works, which may bring much contention from armies of skeptics, critics and the ignorant who, as with the argument against full legalization and availability of drugs, would never try, and have never tried, the things they are so certain are so dangerous and threatening to life.

Anybody who has an active imagination and a healthy inquisitive mind can bypass this kind of bigoted ignorance, and recognize it in most authority figures and systems of control. Some may see how the language used to project the authority of knowing, itself, is a mechanism used to distort the picture, frame the information and prevent those trapped in linguistic cells from realizing the infinite flux of being, out there, beyond language...ish

Oz has promised to report on further developments.
