Boy oh boy have you got a treat coming to you from this piece of work. Robert Sheaffer from The Skeptical Inquirer states that Wilson describes himself as a guerrila ontologist, and this is dead on. Few writers have forced me as much as RAW to admit to myself how subjective and limited my version of reality is. He attacks your cognitive methodology and forces you to re-examine thought processes in a way that leaves you grasping desperately for solid ground. Some of the ideas are so far out (challenging) that I often wonder to what degree he takes himself seriously. His mind goes off in multiple, and unexpected directions, many of which may not appeal to all readers, but I'm convinced you'll find a lot here to keep you entertained, enlightened, and captivated for hours.

This book is RAW at his best. Tweaking the noses of what we consider "reality" and "I", showing us that we are not exactly who we think we are.
One of the best things about this book is that it pays for itself if you follow the visualization exercise in the beginning of the book... (although due to inflation, I would substitute dollars for quarters <G>)
Essentially, this book helps you to expand who you are, not by stroking your ego, but by firing a 10megaton bomb at it in each chapter, and well worth the "fallout".
This book has been repurchased by me numerous times from being warn out, and my first copy still has a place of honor on my shelves...

I have read a great many of Mr. Wilsons books, including "Illuminatus","Masks of the Illuminati","Cosmic Trigger", and this one,"Prometheus Rising". Robert has the most incredible wit, along with the most free-thinking mind I've encountered outside Hakim Bey. His prescription for breaking free of our "reality tunnels" and his depiction of Tim Leary's 8-circuit model of consciousness makes this my favorite. It was one of those books that excited me from start to finish. I wanted to tell everyone about it!

Wer ein Buch kauft in dessen Beschreibung von Timothy Leary (Stichwort LSD), Gurdjieff, Aleister Crowley, Yoga und Robert Anton Wilson die Rede ist, darf sich nicht wundern wenn er etwas zu lesen bekommt das nicht immer in unsere anerkannte Wissenschaft passt. Aber genau das macht doch den Reiz aus. Und das Buch regt zum Nach- und Mitdenken an. Und der Mann hatte nicht unrecht. Ich empfehle das Buch sehr gerne. Es ist außergewöhnlich und beinahe ein Geheimtip.

"Prometheus Rising" is the second essential piece of reading in the Wilson opus, after the "Illuminatus!" trilogy and, if you read no more of his work, this book will tell you all you need to know. Where "Illuminatus!" is a version of his philosophy disguised as a novel, "Prometheus" is the distillation of model agnosticism in plain old black and white. Given with humor and wit, this is one book that will shake you right out of your preconceptions and get you looking at everything in very different ways.
And, as another reviewer mentioned, you WILL find lots of quarters, making this one purchase that's essentially free. Think we're kidding? Read the book, and you'll learn otherwise...

This book explains human experience in terms of biological circuits and imprints. It is one "model" of the experience and as such it is interesting and it is valid. Together with the outline and explanation of different imprints and how they are formed, Wilson provides exercises so that the reader can come to his own conclusions through his own experience. After all, the only way to truly understand something is through experience - the rest will remain mere theory and speculation.

I have conducted number of the experiments from this book, even before I picked up this book and can attest to their validity. Some were spontaneous discoveries due to my life-long interest of experimenting with influence of one's mind, beliefs and expectations upon the experiences in one's life; other experiments were inspired by reading numerous other books and wanting to find out what happens if I do this or that.

The exercises provided in this book are only a starting point, but a very good one.

It is entirely true that a person who has been meditating for years, will have certain realizations and will be able to intentionally do things which are still considered impossible to those who have not activated certain neuro-biological circuits.

And as far as the coin experiment goes - I have friends who have found few hundred dollars lying on the street, or rather, in the subway, not ony one coin.

As the popular motto in quantum physics goes: "the expectations of the Observer determine the outcome of the experiment."

This is my favorite of R.A.W.'s. It is everything it says it is. Funny, Fun and a bit enlightening as well. This guy has a great mind and, it seems to me, a greater heart. Prometheus Rising delivers a big dose of hope, wit and legal mind expansion for those so inclined.

Bob Wilson never fails to shake up your preconceptions and scramble your brains (in a good way). Prometheus Rising is perhaps his best and most direct book. If you can read this book without being changed, you are either one of the "Secret Chiefs" or you are dead (or both?).
Also... you'll find a few quarters.

Thanks to Mr. Wilson - I hope this book will be published continously in the future, because the following generations should have the possibility to read it.
Today we have learned to be a perfect, efficient working-machine: everything has to be proved exactly, rationalism (and money) are our new "GODs".
We all know : This is a Trojan Horse.
What happened?
Robert Anton Wilson explains his ideas to "Prometheus Rising" - evolution, Timothy Learys ideas included, genetics, sciences, society, history, the future, economy .... and - as a result - his humour...
.... but not like a cable connection.
This book is like its conception: not linear.
The author does not want to profile himself. He gives the reader a present: the possibiltity to connect his thoughts from/to multiple directions.
This book made me (the reader) laugh about myself, that's the best result for the efficience of Wilsons positive and good work!
Not only a funny, serious and scientific book, the best description for it is: W I S E.

I got this book a couple of years back, as interest was fuelled by "Illuminatus!" etc. I was thrilled at what he had to say - so much so I wrote an Album "Et In Techno Ego... Dark Night Of the Soul" (£10.99 / $16.00 inc P&P Alicorn Records, PO BOX 493, Kingston, Surrey. KT1 3QP ). It is based on the model of conciousness in the book - that, conspiracy, mind programming and the such - and ranges through techno, space psychedelia to ambient. Samples from Tim L. & Ken Saro Wiwa among others.

If you want to see what the most advanced thinkers think about what's up with us all, you couldn't do better !

Cameron.
