ROBERT ANTON WILSON eBAY AUCTION



http://www.rawilson.com/auction.html

RAW E-Bay Auction

I currently have the highest bid on the RAW/Harvey drawing I gave Mr. Wilson when I was 23. Please feel free to outbid me or even just jack up the price, its all for a great cause!

"This is a wonderful original drawing on cardboard stock of Bob and the "Pooka." It was drawn by a friend, and was much loved and hung in various places on the livingroom wall. There is scotch tape on the edges (Bob's favorite method of hanging...) which could be removed carefully. Or, by putting a frame with a matte to cover the tape, you would have a really remarkable "one of a kind" RAW Artifact. it measures 17 inches high and 11 inches wide."

We just got the great news that the RAW website has had a complete makeover.

THE SINGULARITY MINUS MAYBELOGIC



i GOOGLED Douglas Hofstadter today and found some video from THE SINGULARITY SUMMIT held at Stanford University. His introduction and his sceptical questioning had an echo of RAW's concerns at times - sceptical investigations into REALITY and the gutters and valleys between science fiction and technological scientific progress were just begging, i thought, for BOB to clear up with a sprinkle of poetic humanitas, hilaritas and maybelogic.

I think that a sharp definition would help us understand Ray Kurtzweil and many around the A.I crowd by introducing what Bucky Fuller called livingry and killingry to compare and evaluate, from an added humanitarian point of view. The mixing of humanitarian shared values with those different greedy values often related to military-industrial-corporate techno-pharma-nano so & so... seems to me to be a global problum to be tackled at these debates. NOW! (Nice toys boys, but who's allowed to play and who makes the rules?) It may be enough to say simply that we can all live forever and ever, or blow ourselves to tiny pieces for ever and ever. All men. Have none of these speakers read COSMIC TRIGGER I? And what of applying the Hindu/Leary/Wilson 8 circuit model to these questions? Smart folks at Stanford, but something's missing for me when i watch these high brow video's, sex, drugs and pirate utopias?

Listening to Douglas Hofstadter i wished he would have invoked Dr. Robert Anton Wilson, who seems to me to have thousands of helpful suggestions and new questions for the emerging age of faith-based spiritual robots, angels and demons and Palmer Eldridge gone wild...?

Meanwhile, a Dr. Harrison suggests that we may have to abandon Aristotelian logic, i.e. give up classifying things into only the two categories of "true and real" and "untrue and unreal." In between, in Aristotle's excluded middle, we may have the "maybe" proposed by von Neumann in 1933, the probabilistic logics (percentages/gambles) suggested by Korzybski, the four-valued logic of Rapoport (true, false, indeterminate and meaningless) or some system the non-Hibernian world hasn't found yet. The Kerry farmer would handle all of this better than the typical graduate of any university outside Ireland. - http://www.rawilsonfans.com/articles/CelticRoots.htm









"Fuller also invented the word "livingry," as opposed to weaponry (or "killingry"), to mean that which is in support of all human, plant, and Earth life. " -- R. BUCKMINSTER FULLER.

51 DEGREES.





22ND APRIL 2009. WILD BUILDING. DIGBETH. BIRMINGHAM UK. 8.00 PM.

CHU has a full exhibition of various new ART work of his in Birmingham, UK. CHU on various new mediums: canvas, aluminium, paper prints, stickers, and THE impossible "CHU" CUBE. I was kindly asked by CHU to DJ for the launch and had many epiphany-experiences with the precise aerosol art worlds crafted by CHU. A reminder of how GRAFFITI art and culture reflects IDEOGRAMIC culture, and how STREET art and artists seem to be reaching beyond limits.
