After considering Reincarnation, Heaven and Hell, Bob writes: "A fourth alternative after-death scenario involves merger with "God" or with "the Godhead" (the latter term seems more popular). This idea, which seems Hindic in origin, currently enjoys vast popularity with New Agers. I see nothing terrifying here; in fact, I suspect I would enjoy it, based on my previous experiences in which this merging/melting seemed to take place on LSD. An infinite Acid Trip in which the whole universe seems like your body: who could fear that (except Republicans)?"

Dear friends of Bob,
The new Email to the Universe Print Edition is now available! This Hilaritas Press edition features a new introduction by R. Michael Johnson, a new Afterword by Paul Krassner, and intrepid assistance with editing and proofreading from Gary Acord and Tom Jackson. Amoeba's Fearless Scott McPherson has created another wonderful cover, and through the wonder of a good print job, for the first time the paperback of Email to the Universe has graphics that don't make the illustrator cringe. I know that for a fact because I was the illustrator (Rasa). The first printing in 2005 was disappointing, to say the least. I was thrilled to see the first proof of this new edition. After comparing the old with the new, I felt compelled to make an illustrative graphic . . .

We're really excited about this new edition for all of the above reasons, but also because it's just a fantastic read. The chapters, Left And Right: A Non-Euclidean Perspective and The Relativity Of “Reality” seem urgently relevant in our current socio-political maelstrom. And before all the pasta-elevating ideas begin to congeal, you get to the only fictional essay in the book (or is it?), The Horror On Howth Hill, and suddenly nothing is an absolute reality, all is permitted . . .
Thanks so much for all your love and support!
Lots of love and lasagna to you all!
Rasa, Christina and Olga

RAW's Purple Pooka - visiting with Bob in the hospital - 2005
– posted by Rasa –
In the Robert Anton Wilson Memorabilia Auction, Christina recently sold Bob's purple pooka to a RAW fan in Ireland. She noted in the eBay description that she didn't know where the guy came from, only that Bob loved to have him around. I not only knew where the guy came from, but I had a short video of Bob first meeting the purple pooka.

And now a special message from our Cosmically Triggered friends across the pond . . .
Help Cosmic Trigger Play: Send a Message to RAW from the Future...
Have you ever wished you could tell Robert Anton Wilson something? Maybe what his writings and thoughts have meant to you? Or something like 'thanks for that thing about ePrime' or even just 'thanks' or 'we love you, Bob'? If so, Daisy Campbell would really appreciate your help! Robert Anton Wilson's Cosmic Trigger, the play, is currently in pre-production. The team are beavering away, gearing up for their 23-date run in London in May. They want to hear - literally - from anyone who has something they would've liked to say to Bob. The message will be used as a vocal overlay on a scene where (spoiler alert!) an elderly RAW is in need of help with his medical bills and the love is pouring in through his letterbox in the shape of $23 checks. If you are up for helping to create this audio Bob Lovebomb, please leave a short message at the following numbers:
