New venue for the ONLY MAYBE ARTS LAB


The ONLY MAYBE ARTS LAB has found a new home in the venerable PD forum.

This was a project that started over the summer in support of the virtual Maybe Day event on 7/23/20.

The idea being to bring together some of the innumerable creative people influenced by the Discordian lives & ideas of Robert Anton Wilson, and establish a mutually beneficial art scene of sorts, and see about using RAW's legacy as the launch pad for new trajectories of thought & language :)))

The preservation of RAW's ideas, as he expressed them, seems to be on rock solid ground, with the RAW Trust and Hilaritas Press meticulously and wonderfully producing definitive editions of his books and facilitating new media adaptations. Also, with places like the RAW Illumination Blog, the RAW Semantics Blog, and 2 RAW Fan Archive sites (US & DE), it's safe to say that RAW's oeuvre is safe and secure.

And with that being that case, I kinda want to do some joy riding, because the neuro-semantic context of the sensory-sensual continuum has changed considerably in recent years, with all signs pointing towards increased acceleration, and so I think some new models, metaphors, and methods might be just the thing.

As a proof of concept, I edited a 77 page digital zine called NEW TRAJECTORIES, with contributions from 23 wonderful RAW exegetes, released on MAYBE DAY 2020.

A promising look of things to come... Maybe!

Daisy Eris offers advice for creating a show

 "So if you too are struggling with a part-written show, or would like to try your hand at writing a show for the first time - this is the course for you! Perhaps this invitation is just the kick up the backside you've been praying for...?"

We were too slow off the mark with this information, as the first class has already SOLD OUT, but apparently they are working on offering another, concurrently.

For full details of the course(s) go to The Cockpit Theatre site.

Happy Maybe Day!

Publishing this a little late for the EU and the UK, but a few hours of the 23rd July 2020 remain in the US of A, etc.

For details of some collected material from the old MLA graduates, please visit

For people new to the MLA and its history, you can find a brief account here, written for the Hilaritas Press, who have taken on the task of creating new editions of RAW's works, proofread, with new intros and afterwords, new covers, everything new - and the money goes towards RAW's family, unlike previous editions.

Alternatively, just dive in!  New Trajectories (pdf)

A virtual celebration of the lives and ideas of Robert Anton Wilson. 
It will go live on July 23rd 8:08 AM EST at

We'll be putting together a zine, a collection of video presentations,
and whatever else we dream up in the meanwhile.
Working title for the zine is "NEW TRAJECTORIES"
I'd also like to arrange a couple of panel discussions.

I've set up a discussion forum to help facilitate communication & collaboration:

Do please feel free to pop over, make an account, and say hello!

Approximate deadline for submitting zine content is July 1st
& July 15th for video presentations.

LMK if you have any ideas, questions, and/or concerns!

You can contact me at the OM Arts Lab or at

Information = Surprise

For Jacques Vallée:

...synchronicities possibly provide evidence that reality is based on information, and how consciousness interacts and accesses it:

If you believe that the universe is a universe of ‘information’, then you should expect coincidences. You should expect, since we are an information machine – that’s what our brain is, it’s primarily an information machine and consciousness gives us the illusion of a physical world and there is an illusion of time – if this is the case, then you can expect coincidences. It’s like putting a keyword into Google or Yahoo!; you put it in and get a lot of relevant information back. That doesn’t seem strange to me because that is the way that information has been organized. Maybe the universe is the same way. If it is this way, then coincidences are nothing strange. It is just an indication that this is the way that the universe functions.

Maybe Logic Academy revisited

The MLA came up in discussion, and in particular, the courses that Bob taught.  You can find the syllabus of the 12 week course on the Illuminatus! trilogy, on the website dedicated to those books (the three volume version seems more complete than the omnibus).

Even better, it stimulated the resurrection of similar material for the other courses that Bob taught, which you can find here.

I doubt anyone scraped the whole of the Academy forum material, all those ephemeral  and wonderful conversations between students from all over the world, with always the possibility of RAW joining in...

Still, any bits and pieces you find on your old hard drives might contain nuggets of gold, so if you find some, why not add them to the collection?

Meanwhile, to evoke memories:

Maybe Quarterly recovered

[work in progress - will get tidied up, and improved]

When the Maybe Logic Academy ran, under Bob's direction, we evolved this as a student blog, and that led to us creating a magazine, Maybe Quarterly, which ran for 14 online editions, and one actual paper copy.

The magazine got stored on the academy server, so when that failed, we lost everything, and all the links here, to material contained, got broken.  I decided to rescue what I could, using the Internet Archive (The Wayback Machine).  I found most of the contents, although some images have gone missing (presumably stored elsewhere), and inevitably some links don't work.

You will find some amazing contributions, however, so I will launch this post, and probably finesse it as time goes by (linking to individual articles, etc).  You should be able to read the magazine in sequence, using the "Next" button at the foot of the page, or click on the index on the first page(s) to go to specific content.   I will add authors later.
