I read the Shrodinger Cat series

I've read his encyclopedia of conspiracy theories Everything is Under Control.

I've never read the Illuminatus! series.

What SHOULD I read of his?
Episkopos of the Slackjawed Cabal, POEE.

well, everything is all good and all, but I would say that his grocery list from April 12th, 1973 was his best work ever. You should check it out.

"The Shrodinger's Cat Trilogy"  is the best by far!

If you haven't read the Illuminatus! trilogy, read the Illuminatus! trilogy!!  I mean, sheesh, that's the one that's actually about Discordians and stuff...

But after that, read, Reality Is What You Can Get Away With, and then Quantum Psychology (if you're into either psychology or quantums)

Just got the Illuminatus trilogy from some fucknuts little library so small it looks like a burst pimple on the map of even my tiny country. Why the hell do they have it and my (the largest in the southern hemisphere) public library doesn't?

Because our buyers, and I know them personally, don't think outside the box too much when it comes to fiction. Top ten, a wave thrown at genre so mainstream you could weep and a trickle for the real freaks out there. Oh well.

All ranting aside, I'm super-pleased.
Don't you know how sweet and wonderful, life can be
I'm askin you baby, to get it on with me
I aint gonna worry, I aint gonna push
So come on, come on, come on, come on baby
Stop beatin round the bush...

Let's get it on
Let's get it on
Let's get it on
Let's get it on

RAW is prismatic. RAW is not Geno. Therefore 2+1=0.

RAW rocks, it only took a few pages of the prometheus for me to realize that he was a genious, and just a little more pages to realize that he's not even half of what we all can be ^^

And also read 'Liber Kaos', which is by another person altogether. It explains the magical view of the universe as quantum physics.

Yeah, that's definately my favorite, but he said he'd already read it, so I didn't bother to mention it.

If you liked that one, also try 'Liber Null and Psychonaut' (two books collected into one volume) by Peter Carroll.  Lots of practical 'how-to' info.
