*** There's a reference in the Appendices to AldousHuxley's novel ''Island'', in which the Rajah has trained mynah birds to fly over the titular island saying "Attention!" and "Here and now, boys!" to remind the people of the island to ''concentrate fully on the here and now.'' Huxley was a friend of TimothyLeary's. Leary was a friend of Wilson's. You do the math.

*** While we're on that note, ''Illuminatus!'' makes a lot more sense in the context of the [[TheSixties 1960s]] and [[TheSeventies 1970s]] counterculture. Timothy Leary once famously said the trilogy is "more important than ''{{Literature/Ulysses}}'' or ''[[Literature/FinnegansWake Finnegans Wake]]''." It, along with [[Literature/GravitysRainbow Gravity's Rainbow]] and {{Literature/Dhalgren}}, delves into the [[MindScrew druggy excesses]] of the time but also the desire for individuality and free-thinking.
