Robert Anton Wilson died today at the age of 74. The acclaimed author and godfather of Discordianism is survived by mills of fans.

His Illuminatus! Trilogy was a profound influence on me and it's what drew me to Discordianism in the first place. Without it, I'd have never met malual, who brightened my Rochester experience so much, and if I had never met her, it's likely her husband faboo wouldn't have either.

I gotta go read some more of his books sometime soon.

Someone on Metafilter said, "my religious life, to the extent that I have one, is almost entirely derived from Robert Anton Wilson," which is a statement I completely agree with. Him and Heinlein, although Heinlein much less so (albeit an earlier influence).

I heard that his last words were "zip zip tang".
