Robert Anton Wilson On The Acceleration To 2012

The Jumping Jesus Phenomenon is a humorous theory mentioned (and likely invented) by Robert Anton Wilson to describe the increasingly rapid doubling of human knowledge since the year 1 C.E. to the present. He mentions the phenomenon in a number of his philosophical stand-up comedy lectures, most notably in an hour and a half long seminar given in 1986 titled "The Acceleration of Knowledge". He also wrote down a version of the lecture in his book "Right Where You Are Sitting Now".
