Here’s one of our favorite quotes from the Illuminatus Trilogy:
“Feeling paranoid? Good: illumination is on the other side of absolute terror. And the only terror that is truly absolute is the horror of realising that you can’t believe anything you’ve ever been told. You have to realise fully that you are “a stranger and afraid in a world you never made,” like Houseman said.”
And here’s the publisher’s delightful description.
Filled with sex and violence–in and out of time and space–the three books of The Illuminatus are only partly works of the imagination. They tackle all the coverups of our time–from who really shot the Kennedys to why there’s a pyramid on a one-dollar bill.
- The Illuminatus – Robert Anton Wilson.
