ok, i'm lazy right now so i'll give a few half-assed statements...

i love the philosophy in the book, definatly changed my perspective and opened my mind to things, but come on, who's believing this undead nazi lloigor cthulhu thing? am i really supposed to believe this? and why? i don't understand why people are supposed to take this book so literally, in what my mind is clearly a semi-parody

follow carefully.... i read it IN 2 MONTHS

and just because i don't believe cthulhu is going to eat my soul doesn't quite make me a fool

Fine, believe what ever you want.

And no, no one can eat your "soul" because there is no such things as "soul" in ordinary people.
But you will give out something else instead if you get killed.

I'm planning a good post about this whole "soul" issue in the religiouse forum very soon.

Stay turned.

The Illigor ate him. I came back to this book tonight because I had that moment on the bridge George had, the one where he realises we're all just characters on a wider stage, when it hits home. Makes me think we're the same, we've got our places in the sub-context and like the characters in Illuminatus is just one little part of what changes things that teensie bit so they can't immanentize the eschaton. Weird, huh?

Yes, Historical Illuminatus was great, as was the Schrodingers Cat Trilogy. I highly recommend both series.
