    1. Robert Anton Wilson became, at various times, an American novelist, essayist, philosopher, polymath, psychonaut, futurist, libertarian and self described agnostic mystic Recognized as an Episkopos, Pope, and Saint of Discordianism by Discordians who care to label him as such, Wilson helped publicize the group religion melee through his writings, interviews, and strolls.He described his work as an attempt to break down conditioned associations, to look at the world in a new way, with many models recognized as models or maps, and no one model elevated to the truth My goal is to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone but agnosticism about everything.

    2. Robert Anton Wilson wrote this film script in the late '90's while settling into a new environment (Los Angeles) and recovering from a collapsed film deal. Wilson waited nearly a decade before publishing it. This is not one of Wilson's better works. Wilson's books of philosophy and social criticism shine with brilliance, wit and a clarifying debunking. Praise of these points festoons the covers here, but it is not The Walls Came Tumbling Down that earner that lauding. In the story Michael, an ac [...]

    3. The Walls Came Tumbling Down is one of my least favorite works by Robert Anton Wilson. This is due less to the quality of the work itself, however, than it is to my familiarity with his other works, and how ill-suited his complex and multilayered material is for film. The imagery and references used in his screenplay to deliver his philosophies regarding spirituality, reality, belief, and individual consciousness, not only feel simplistic and forced, but barely manage to capture the tip of the p [...]

    4. I bought this months ago and had trouble getting into it because of the screenplay format, which made for a bumpy read. Months later I tried it again in a different mood and was extremely satisfied. It goes perfectly with what I'm writing and thinking about myself right now--how shocking it can be when unfamiliar data about reality rushes in overwhelming all the maps and charts and measurements. I guess they never really made a movie from the script--at any rate, I've never seen it listed anywhe [...]

    5. So, this was the first fiction I've ever read from RAW and interestingly enough the first of his books I didn't really like. The characters were awful and dull and there were just too many RAW clichés scattered along the pages. Too much maybe logic on the conclusion and oh my god, give me a break with the fucking Ode to Joy. Anticlimactic. No wonder this never made into a movie.

    6. This is a screenplay about how one's concept of reality can completely change and how jarring it can be for that person. Having gone through some similar situations in my own life, it was relatable, but this is one of Wilson's weaker works. Luckily, it was a really quick read, and the story was somewhat interesting, but his other books are so much better than this one.

    7. Those who are familiar with RAW's other works will find that this play covers a great deal of familiar ground, but some of the scenes are quite memorable. It really is too bad this wasn't made into a film.
