Quantum Psychology

How Brain Software Programs You and Your World

by Robert Anton Wilson

Featuring a New Introduction by David Jay Brown!

Quantum Psychology offers a coherent and humorous description of how our thoughts, values and behaviors have been colored by our use of language and our prevailing view of the universe. While Quantum Mechanics, relativity, non-Euclidean geometries, non-Aristotelian logic and General Semantics have revolutionized our view of the world, the habits of daily human thought still sit deeply rooted in the thought patterns and linguistic conventions of the middle ages. Through an introduction to E-Prime (English without use of the verb “to be”), the Eight Circuits of the Brain Model, and the labyrinth of Quantum Mechanic’s various views of reality, Quantum Psychology can help your brain improve your perception of yourself and the world.

“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

Does for Quantum Mechanics what Durrell’s Alexandria Quartet did for Relativity, but Wilson is funnier. – John Gribbin, physicist

“What great physicist hides behind the mask of Wilson?” – New Scientist

“I have learned more from Robert Anton Wilson than I have from any other source.” – Comedian George Carlin

You can see the above illustration two different ways. Can you see it both ways at the same time, or can you only change your mental focus rapidly and see it first one way and then the other way, in alteration?

“The true essence of things is a profound illusion.”
