If you are reading this review, you no doubt are familiar with RAW's amazing books. You need to purchase this DVD immediately. Not only will it help RAW financially, it will also help you. If you have not read any of RAW's books but happened to serendipitously stumble across this DVD, I highly recommend reading one of them first. 'Schrödinger's Cat' is possibly my favorite fiction book of all time. 'Prometheus Rising' is an amazing life-changing operator's manual for the infinitely lovely human brain. Either of these books or 'Cosmic Trigger' would be perfect entry points into the one-of-a-kind body of work put forth by RAW.
I realize I have not talked much about the DVD, and therefore this may not be the most affective review... however, whilst bumbling around Amazon, I happened upon this DVD (which I purchased 3 years ago), and felt instantly and very strongly compelled to give it my glowing endorsement.Read more ›
If you're already a fan of Wilson's work, you're unlikely to learn anything new here; but you'll probably enjoy yourself all the same. If, like me, you never got the chance to met Wilson in person, this is probably as close as we'll get to sitting down for a chat with elderly "Uncle Bob". There's also a random assortment of material of varying quality from earlier in his life.
My recommendation in brief: read some of his books first, then leave this video playing on your TV as you go about your daily chores and let Uncle Bob worm his way into your brain.
I've owned this since it's original release in 2003 and I've watched it 8 times, and every time I do I learn something new and deeper then I did before. Robert Anton Wilson is the Mother load and his ideas are both simple and complex. Simple in that a person feels like they get them at first encounter but you can keep going deeper with what RAW teaches and if you truly got it, I feel, you'd be left simply loving.
...and maybe a little pissed off that others, like George Bush, are trying to keep you from being simply that way.
I've also listened to Robert Anton Wilson Explains Everything (or old bob exposes his ignorance) once a year since I first purchased it 5 years ago and recommend it highly. Does he explain everything, Maybe! Like the DVD each time I experience it I understand new things or in a different more beneficial way then I ever did before.
Now that I've seen this again and again I realized WoW BoB explains both Taoism and Yoga and what it means to understand the true meaning of Mystical Enlightenment and now I get it!
Even if you don't get it like I get it but you get it in your own unique individial way RAW will make you more intelligent, more free, and more understanding, and benevolent. He is a brilliant, wise, humble, and very funny man!
Check out RAW, he's life changing!
Be warned that the video plays like a cheesy amateur school project. There's constant nagging background music and blocky unnecessary animation distractions. Personally, I don't mind, I think it's charming. I enjoy listening to the man talk.
