We decide which is right and which is an illusion.

The Refusal To Bow To Authority

‘Every fact of science was once damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. The entire web of culture and progress, everything on earth that is man-made and not given to us by nature, is the concrete manifestation of some man’s refusal to bow to authority. We would own no more, know no more, and be no more than the first apelike hominids if it were not for the rebellious, recalcitrant, and the intransigent.’

Robert Anton Wilson
American Author, Philosopher, Psychologist, and Poet
