First published in 1977, Robert Anton Wilson’s Cosmic Trigger explored the plurality and mutability of reality through a discussion on Wilson’s personal experiences with high strangeness phenomena, including communication with extraterrestrials, occult practices and paranormal experiences.
My Cosmic Trigger borrows from Wilson’s title. Having researched high strangeness and personally experienced similar phenomena to Wilson, this book is Cosmic Trigger for a new generation. It discusses high strangeness phenomena in general and the author’s experiences in particular.
High strangeness is a subset of the overall paranormal field and is, in simple terms, when two or more paranormal phenomena intersect, such as bigfoot and UFO sightings being reported in the same location. My Cosmic Trigger seeks to explain the theory and practice behind high strangeness.
This book is a fantastic starting point for someone who is just getting into high strangeness and it also serves as a necessary addition to the library of any seasoned high strangeness researcher, offering an overview of the history of the subject as well as analysis of where, why and how high strangeness might occur.
This book might serve as a guide to one’s first journey down the high strangeness rabbit hole, and includes: a historical background on the subject; discussion of the best researchers in the field, past and present; a survey of the theories as to why these phenomena occur; a substantial path into learning about these phenomena and how they may manifest in one’s life.
For people more experienced on the subject, My Cosmic Trigger is unique in that it offers a new approach to the study of high strangeness and a magic of high strangeness, which is designed to make the study of this subject impact one’s life in a positive way.
More than just a book, My Cosmic Trigger is a multimedia project. An adjunct podcast, discussing the chapters in more detail, will accompany the book. Readers and listeners will have the opportunity to interact with the material in a meaningful way online through mycosmictrigger.com.
By providing theories behind high strangeness, this is intended to be a guidebook for people going through Cosmic Trigger type initiations. This book offers a way around the path of insanity so common in this domain of research. The author is in a unique position to guide the reader in this regard, being that the author has been a practicing psychotherapist for the past 15 years.
For Robert Anton Wilso (RAW), there are only two ways to resolve one’s descent into the high strangeness of chapel perilous: coming out the other side agnostic or insanely paranoid. No offense to RAW, laughing merrily from beyond the grave, but both options appear less than ideal. This book offers a third approach: spiritual ascension.
