The founding of our society is shrouded in mystery. The story I
made up was
told at my initiation was that it was created by The Midget - the real, live one, the one
who started the legend. The story of his exploits had spread throughout the Counterculture
in the 1960s, and was so well known that Robert Shea, who had heard it years before,
insisted on including it in the Illuminatus! Trilogy, using the urban legend as a
kind of dope-culture in joke. Years, later much to their astonishment, Wilson and Shea
came upon incontrovertible proof that the story was, in fact, true; eventually, they
found The Midget, and after a long conversation he agreed to be inducted into the
Erisian Liberation Front. Some time after that, he founded his own group - and the
rest, as they say, is revisionist history.
Do you believe that?
