+ - Robert Anson Wilson passes into the night

Submitted by
Eek
Eek writes: "All Hail Eris! Robert Anton Wilson, author of The Illuminatus! Trilogy, editor of The MIT Encyclopedia of the Cognitive Sciences (MITECS), well known philosopher, and overall weird guy, has passed away. His last words to the world were "Various medical authorities swarm in and out of here predicting I have between two days and two months to live. I think they are guessing. I remain cheerful and unimpressed. I look forward without dogmatic optimism but without dread. I love you all and I deeply implore you to keep the lasagna flying.""
