A great book (I just had one small objection)
on 30 November 2011
I've been a fan of RAW for a year now, and Prometheus Rising really opened up a lot of things for me.
The last four months I've been reading dozens of books on quantum physics, the holographic model, the Vedas, and spirituality.
If you know very little about quantum physics or modern philosophy this book can really be an eye opener and a helpful guide to further investigation.
However, and this won't be popular, though the book is very well written, both amusing and intelligent, and even though Wilson really knows what he is speaking about, I did not agree whole-heartedly with all of Wilsons assertions. I should make very clear that this is a subjective and deeply personal objection, as should be obvious to any Wilson reader, and I do not have any real education to object. I still found this book very entertaining and thought-provoking. I guess it's a small and insignificant objection, and I'm sure Wilson has a better foundation for his claims, but for me it seems that a deeper reality, one that to me appears universal, really exists. (Notice the E-Primer, the exclusion of "is"! I still love Wilson and Korzybski, don't get me wrong)
I agree much more with Prometheus, in fact I had no objections. With this book I have one small objection, but that doesn't in any way lessen the impact, genius, legacy, and importance of this book in my library.
