Eric Wagner and RAW on Pound and Illuminatus!

Eric Wagner, with some friends 

[Eric Wagner, the author of An Insider's Guide to Robert Anton Wilson, recently forwarded me an email exchange between himself and Robert Anton Wilson, dated April 23, 2006. Thought I would share it with you. I haven't changed anybody's words, but I edited and formatted for clarity. Thanks, Eric! — The Management.]

Eric Wagner: I just reread your brilliant chapter on the VIth circuit in Prometheus Rising.  It made me think that many of the goddess and god scenes in the Cantos fit in well with Sheldrake's morphogenetic field theory.  Critters pick up on the morphogenetic fields and perceive the Eleusinian visions that crop up throughout the Cantos, a sort of yoga between the sixth circuit of individual brains and the morphogenetic fields.

Robert Anton Wilson: I suspect Ez decided to become a poet because
he had those visions from childhood on hence despite his rants against religion he
never denies "divinity."

Eric Wagner: What percentage of Illuminatus! did you write, and what percentage did Bob Shea write?

Robert Anton Wilson: I would guess about 2/3 me [mostly humor & surrealism]
and 1/3 Shea [mostly adventure].

Thanks for sharing this exchange with Bob from ten years ago, as well as the picture of the Vinteuil Society. Great work as ever on your blog.
