Robert Anton Wilson fan (and writer, and coach) Adrian Reynolds has a very nice essay up, "What's Up Doc?", about about paying attention to what's around you and avoiding acting like a robot.
"For the last couple of weeks I've either been doing things to reach deadlines for projects I'm already working on, or starting to prepare for new escapades. Not much wiggle room in there for departing from a bunch of habits that I've mistaken for myself."
But he got out of it, and read how. There's some Discordianism in his piece.
And if you like the piece, don't miss his "Press When Illuminated" video.
