RIP: Robert Anton Wilson

Author Robert Anton Wilson (The Illuminatus! Trilogy) passed away today.

His final blog post reads thusly:

Various medical authorities swarm in and out of here predicting I have between two days and two months to live. I think they are guessing. I remain cheerful and unimpressed. I look forward without dogmatic optimism but without dread. I love you all and I deeply implore you to keep the lasagna flying.

Please pardon my levity, I don’t see how to take death seriously. It seems absurd.

  1. What can you say? Fnord? All Hail Eris? All Hail Discordia? Ah, we knew it was coming soon.

    :(

  2. Admirable attitude to have regarding death.

  3. I’ve contributed to the distortion in the reality field by adding 23 more “23’s” in a tribute here.
