I've written in to several online news publications. It's only fitting that RAW should get an obituary as a tribute.

Copious tears of joy for all you've given me and, by obvious extension, our kulchur. Your intelligence was/"is"...hyper-"real"! 35+ books, articles, recordings = Immortality...in some sense. Love and profound gratitude to you, oblivious?

My condolences to his family and friends. He shared so much with us, including the example of seriously not taking ourselves too seriously.

I am glad that he is no longer in pain, that he is at rest, and if he is anywhere I hope he is truly joyous.

RIP, RAW.

Several years ago, you helped me to put my brain to better use by showing me the fnords and who the Illuminati "really" are, and I will always be grateful to you for that. I hope that whatever part(s) of the multiverse may still contain your consciousness have a hell of a lot more Slack than this one does.

No ignorance and also no extinction of it,
and so forth until no old age and death
and also no extinction of them.

No suffering, no origination,
no stopping, no path, no cognition,
also no attainment with nothing to attain.

The Bodhisattva depends on Prajna Paramita
and his mind is no hindrance;
without any hindrance no fears exist.
Far apart from every perverted view he dwells in Nirvana.

In the three worlds
all Buddhas depend on Prajna Paramita
and attain Anuttara Samyak Sambodhi.

Therefore know that Prajna Paramita
is the great transcendent mantra,
is the great bright mantra,
is the utmost mantra,
is the supreme mantra
which is able to relieve all suffering
and is true, not false.
So proclaim the Prajna Paramita mantra,
proclaim the mantra which says:

gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha
gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha
gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha.

Farewell and rest in peace, I am sorry humanity let you down!

Jesse said...

this reality "models" a dream... (inside a dream.. inside a dream..)

last night I finally met the Holy Guardaian Angel, harry the rabbit, my quantum self. I had some very psychic experiences, I was shown the other side, I was shown many aspects of the fabric of our reality. I was spoken to and through by my grandfather whose birthday it was, yet I did not know this until I was on the phone with my mother and I felt his presence his transmission of consciousness showing me things from the next stage, and the stages after that...

Then I felt.. somehow I knew RAW had passed to the next level. I didn't want to believe it, and I sure as heck doubted myself. Then I looked on this blog today and to my amazement, he has. It is very surreal, amazing, sad and beautiful. I'm still in shock. But now know, in much stronger terms then I would have ever felt possible that there is so.. so much more then we could have ever and will ever imagine or know. Bob is still with us, and we will all meet again. Everything comes back around. Just be (patient).

Though while we are still here.. in this seemingly physical realm.. let us pass on his knowledge.. let's save as many as we can

thank you so much Bob :)
you are love(d)

Mark Joyner said...

Bob, you changed my life perhaps more than anyone else.

What you taught me as a young man will stay with me through my whole life. Later in life, when I was able to befriend you, one of my heroes, it had an even more profound impact on me.

Your intellect was so staggering.

But Bob, you were one who would advise us not to have heroes, weren't you?

Well, that is my way of raising my fist in the air and demonstrating the true nature of the Illuminati (if I understood the parable).

You say, "Have no heroes!"

I stand, my fist raised in defiance and say, "You're my hero."

I am sure that in death, as it always is, your contribution will be better recognized than it was in life.

At the very least, here is one man who owes so much to you, saying it's so.

Enjoy the trip.

Bob is dead! Long live Bob!

My condolencies to family. You were so lucky...

Tom Buckner said...

Bob, this time you've gone TOO FAR. First you tampered with our sense of humor, then you rearranged our reality tunnels, and now you've abandoned us in a section of the multiverse where the Dark Ages still continue. This act will not go unfunished. I think I'll go find a church and pee on the doorknobs.

Peace and rest, wise one...Peace and rest. But hopefully not too much of either. ;-)

§cott Weitz said...

I first met Bob when I came to the Berkeley area in the 1970's & I took his Scientific & Experimental Magick class. What a mind-expanding experience those classes were! I will cherish the memories of those times forever. He was an amazing guy with an utterly hilarious sense of humor. As irreverant as he was, he was always very kind & considerate to the people around him. A very compassionate & loving individual, he redefined what it meant to be a Thelemite & always pushed the envelope to the hilt! He will be missed, but never forgotten.

Live from the Macworld Expo in S.F, §cott.

Pope Clifton said...

I knew it was coming, but damn.

Bob was probably one of the biggest influences on my life. Reading Illuminatus when I was 16 was one of the major forces which led to my reading Crowley (and John Lilly, and John Dee, and ...) as a teenager, dropping acid, and signing up with the SubGenii as soon as I stumbled on them. I suspect I'd be a whole lot less sane today if not for his books. Hell, I might never have resolved my authority figure problems, if I hadn't become a Pope!

Hail f'in Eris, and I'll miss knowing you're out there on this plane. Go raise hell in the next level.

93, 23, parasamgate, whatever.

Dearest Bob! - Goodbye to you: My life would be very, very much poorer without you and your immortal work! Especially your books "Cosmic Trigger" and "Prometheus Rising" were my first and most important maps on the psychedelic path - they were magic jewels to me.

Dear Robert Anton WIlson:

I wish I could say that I won't miss you, but though I never got to meet you in person and although I believe through your works you have achieved an honourable state of immortality, I can't help feeling that I've lost a member of my own family today and so I mourn your parting from this CorpoReality.

For me, you were more than another candle in the wind. You were and still are a modern day Prometheus. And I, for one, Will always endeavour to pass on the brilliance of your wit and wisdom whenever I can, and also add whatever I can to keep the torch burning brightly.

I pray Sirius guides you onwards and true towards and beyond your next great adventure.

Lots of Love,

HS,
I met Mr. Wilson only one time in my life. I made him laugh by playing "Dennis the menace" Mr. Wilson! Mr. Wilson! I'd say I'm gonna miss him but it feels like he is here more now than when I met him in person. May Bes bless you and keep you smiling Mr. Wilson.

Goodbye, Old Bob! You've been loved.

Farewell, Bob.

I have nothing but love for you, and for the generosity you showed me a few years ago, granting me an interview.

I owe much of the weirdness in my life to my encounters with you and your books, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

May your journey be beautiful.

Bye Bob,

I am glad you got to be around for the naming of Eris in our solar system.

To my third parent: porn, booze, guns, dope, confused expressions and Joycean multilayered skullbuggery.

I'm glad I was able to pay forward a little bit to help you stay in your home.

Man, I hate the 11th of the month. (Except for July 11, 1991. That was one hell of an eclipse.)

Farewell and thank you Bob!

Goodbye, Bob. You'll live on in the minds you touched.

Hail Eris!

"Only the survivors are dead."

Ancient Chinese proverb, quoted on the album cover of Carla Bley's Genuine Tong Funeral.

Bet you're pleasantly surprised, or will be "soon".

Soar forth in your growth RAW. We will miss you.
