Well, I think that it became easier the more I reread his stuff... The first time I was convinced he was laying down truth and fact and just trying to hide it with maybes... Anymore, I think he was trying to talk about ideas and used CRAZY metaphors/models to explain the idea so people wouldn't believe the map. But then again, I also sometimes think he was a smart guy that knew what a particular niche market wanted to read.

i always enjoyed the crazy maps and the references inside of references inside of references that he used in his writing. i  thought he did it in an attempt to make the reader aware of the map and force them to read his stuff from a meta perspective..

I agree... sometimes ;-)

Sometimes, I'm pretty sure he was fucking with the reader.

without a doubt

meta perspective and "bullshit detector on" have a few similarities..

Dolaras LaPicho has argued this point in particular before.  She believes what RAW (and several others, such as Hyatt etc) promoted was a "small businessman magus" persona.  In part, what they did essentially ended up being moderately successful authors and speakers with a devoted fanbase.  And perhaps their work will only get you that far as well.

But that is an argument for another time.

I recall an interview where someone asked RAW what he was focused on now... obviously expecting some comment about immortality, UFO's, the Illuminati etc... and instead Bob went off about how he was focused on making some money from a couple new books and his lecture tour.

I was like this:  :lulz:

I kinda felt that way when reading The Psychopath's Bible.  It's like Hyatt wasn't even trying anymore.

Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit

Being concerned with certain occult readings, I'd like to skim off the top and boil down right to the heart and soul of right and wrong. Or in fact, the heart and soul's Right and Wrong.

IF IT HAS TO BE HIDDEN FROM YOUR OWN PEERS, IT'S FUCKING WRONG.

THAT'S ALL YE KNOW, AND ALL YE NEED KNOW.

THE REST OF THAT SHIT YOU POSTED IS ANGSTY BULLSHIT, AND IS ALSO WRONG.  YOU SHOULD BE FED INTO A CHIPPER FOR WASTING EVERYONE'S TIME.

There.  Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go tell the Dalia Lama to fuck off.

When i ponder questions such as right or wrong, it often leads me to hypotheticals regarding who i would or wouldnt kill in a given circumstance in regard to accomplishing a certain goal.
