“OBSCENE, blasphemous, subversive and very, very interesting.”
– Alan Watts on Robert Anton Wilson
It was also in 1963 that Alan Watts, Zen philosopher-clown, came through southern Ohio, to visit his sister in Dayton, and visited our farm. Jano (Mrs. Watts) was with him, and it was probably at that time that she first used her term, “the Net,” in my hearing. The Net, according to Jano, is a web of coincidence (or synchronicity) which connects everything-in-the-universe with everything-else-in-the-universe.
