Prometheus Rising paperback released
Hilaritas Press has announced that the new RAW Trust paperback edition of Prometheus Rising has been released, taking its place alongside the ebook edition released earlier. The next book to be published as a new official edition will be Quantum Psychology.
As I mentioned earlier, the new edition has a piece by Richard Rasa which explores why Robert Anton Wilson used somewhat different versions of the Eight Circuit model of consciousness in different, switching the locations of circuits 6 and 7.
The full announcement is available here, and as in past announcements from Hilaritas, a highlight comes from an autobiographical piece from Christina Pearson, RAW's eldest daughter, who talks about what it was like to grow up in the Wilson household and about her own search for a meaningful life. (It turns out she is 59, as am I.)
Life could be difficult for a Wilson family teen:
During that last year in Chicago I saw kids flip out, have psychotic breakdowns, have transcendent life experiences and complete cognitive paradigm shifts. I saw knife fights in the alleys, dads pointing rifles at kids, Black Panthers coming over to dinner, and prayers for the Viet Nam War to end on the lawns. I felt old; way, way old, before my time. I had a boyfriend who said “you are an old soul, I look at you and see the eyes of a thirty year-old.” I dropped him like a hot potato because I yearned for him to acknowledge the Timeless within me… I was thirteen.
