A word from Robert Anton Wilson

with 2 comments

Full-time fiction writing is a constant daily exercise in getting outside one’s own head and thinking and feeling the way other people think and feel…As I’ve said, novel writing involves learning to think like other people. My novels are written so as to force the reader to see things through different reality grids rather than through a single grid. It’s important to abolish the unconscious dogmatism that makes people think their way of looking at reality is the only sane way of viewing the world. My goal is to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone, but agnosticism about everything.

Robert Anton Wilson, in an interview with Starship
