Featuring a New Introduction by John Higgs!
The great modern classic of a brilliant rebel’s personal exploration into the nature of consciousness
“Cosmic Trigger deals with a process of deliberately induced brain change. This process is called “initiation” or “vision quest” in many traditional societies and can loosely be considered some dangerous variety of self-psychotherapy in modern terminology. I do not recommend it for everybody . . . briefly, the main thing I learned in my experiments is that “reality” is always plural and mutable.” – Robert Anton Wilson from the Preface
“Wilson managed to reverse every mental polarity in me, as if I had been pulled through infinity. I was astonished and delighted.” – Philip K. Dick, author of VALIS, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (Blade Runner) and other great books
“A dazzling barker hawking tickets to the most thrilling tilt-a-whirls and daring loop-o-planes on the midway of higher consciousness.” – Tom Robbins, author of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Jitterbug Perfume and other great books
“One of the leading thinkers of the modern age.” – Barbara Marx Hubbard, Foundation for Conscious Evolution
“I have learned more from Robert Anton Wilson than I have from any other source.” – Comedian George Carlin
