The Tale of the Tribe. [TOTT.]
An ambiguous and widely missunderstood grouping of FIVE words, or four if you miss off THE’
I think the phrase “A Poem including History” works as a helpful pointer. Finnegans Wake and the Cantos’
Are each “The Tale of the Tribe” in their respective ways. “Illuminatus! Trilogy” too!
These 3 texts when considered together may constitute a triangular structure, from which RAW’s TOTT SHINE most
Also the book by Michael Berstein  “The Tale of the Tribe: The Modern verse epic of Ezra Pound.”
Steers us once more toward uncle [EZ] who with [JJ] become the two primary exhibitors of
RAW’s TOTT. [which i figure is NOT his final published book “email to the Universe”, but something much bigger
woven and threaded throughout his books, and sombunall of his literary influences, an invisible landscape. ]
So what i refer to as [RAW’s TOTT], as opposed to anybody else’s idea or conception/perception
of the TOTT remains something we have yet to define. But he left us many clues. [rising drums and Cello’s]
Maybe it requires a total revision of RAW’s entire catalogue
With the new TOTT gloss, [best condensed at the back of his bookTSOG]
To move closer to lifting this great ball of TOTT crystal IMHO.
…the alphabet vs. the equation….?
…language as Class Warfare…?
Here’s a condensed paragraph from RAW, giving us
**I hereby acknowledge the debts my works owe to Remy de Gourmont,
for his method of dissociation of ideas, to Alfred Korzybski, for his
formulations of general semantics; to Richard Bandler, for his
invension of neurolinguistic Programming; to Buckminster Fuller for his
synergetics, to Claude Shannon and Norbert Weiner for their studies of
control and communication between animals and/or machines; and to
Ezra Pound for Ideogrammic Method.
None of them deserve any blame for my errors or blunders.** -Robert Anton Wilson, email to the Universe.
I would like to echo Bob’s sentiment here, as he does not deserve any blame for my earaws or blunterz.
And here we have a neat introduction to [RAW’s TOTT]compiled by the sparkling MLA.
“==Tale of the Tribe==
The first of Wilson’s MLA courses bridging the political,
the social and the psychological, [[Tale of the Tribe]] promises to be a landmark
journey with our dear Dr. Bob. Starring **Giordano Bruno, Giambatista Vico,
Friederich Nietzsche, Ernest Fenollosa, Ezra Pound, Alfred Korzybski,
James Joyce, Buckminster Fuller, Claude Shannon** and **Marshall McLuhan** —
the nucleus of the extraordinary minds that have helped shape the
information age of 21st century and the mindscape of **Robert Anton Wilson.**
Join Wilson as he explores the themes, minds and ideas of his forthcoming book, The Tale of the Tribe.–A.A MLA Admin.
And here is a question by BOB,
from the back of his book TSOG: The thing the ate the constitution,
That i think crystalizes RAW’s TOTT,
And deserves DAILY revision…
What do Giordano Bruno, Giambatista Vico,
Friedrich Nietzsche, Ernest Fenollosa, Ezra Pound
Alfred Korzybski, James Joyce, Buckminster Fuller,
Claude Shannon, Marshall Mcluhan and Internet all have in
common? You”ll find out. -TSOG.
I have started doing this new work, condensing the nodle clusters
From RAW’s work’s [the names of the characters to begin with]
And started arranging them in different ways. [having searchable source’s has greatly inspired this posting]
I feel that i have stepped over/through some boundaries in some sense,
By cutting bits from RAW’s writing and sticking them together. [byte-ing RAW]
But, with the strictest supervision, and with a community who can FEEDBACK
with each other while doing so, we can basically continue RAW’s work,
And study his structure, technique and methods?
In some sense this new work of mine is nothing more than a collection of Robert Anton Wilson quotes.
But unlike any other collection of RAW quotations,
This one focuses on RAW’s Tale of the Tribe, the historical characters,
who “make it new”.
I hope the MLA, TRIBE, and everybody else can join this great
Work in conception/perception.
But for me this is just the beginning, the bare bones, an historical
Kind of invetigation. [phase I]
I wish for audio/visual components, and hyperlinking which help
Make the words NEW.
Maybe email is the best way to work this out in the initial stages?
