Experimental Metaphysics/Pamphlets by Joe Jonah Euclid
I got this book at the Museum of Jurassic Technology when I was 19. It was written by a homeless MIT grad who would staple pamphlets of prose philosophy around UCLA in the 90’s. It’s kind of a precursor to a lot of what you see on twitter these days, schizoposting, etc. I’ve always been inspired by guys like this, another interesting guy was Shea Zellweger. If you’re like me you sometimes get an impulse to exclude yourself from group activities, alienate yourself, etc. I like how committed he was to writing and posting this stuff.
Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars
Legend has it this manual was found in 1986 by an employee at Boeing inside an IBM printer being sold for scrap parts. It outlines how the credit system is predicated on population reduction. It has a lot of charts and diagrams that show how consumers are misled by manufactured causes and events. I have no idea if this is made up or not. It could be like the Voynich manuscripts, which have basically been debunked as totally fake. Honestly I think made up documents are cool. It's all just interesting to me.
