Alan Wilson Watts (January 6, 1915November 16, 1973) was a philosopher, writer, speaker, and expert in comparative religion. He was best known as an interpreter and popularizer of Asian philosophies for a Western audience.

He wrote more than twenty-five books and numerous articles on subjects such as personal identity, the true nature of reality, higher consciousness, and the pursuit of happiness, relating his experience to scientific knowledge and to the teachings of Eastern and Western religions or philosophies (Zen Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity, Hinduism, etc.).

Alan Watts was also a well-known autodidact.

Years ahead of his time, a very rare, enlightened man IMHO.
Take heed of his words.

I’m listening to the audio feed on Alan Watts – fascinating stuff – he really was ahead of his self.
Very knowledgeable person – and this was the days before the internet.

We all need to wake up!
There is a revolution forming on the horizon – a peaceful one and one of enlightenment I think.

Can you imagine how people like this would develop if they had the internet as a tool to communicate with similar others and compare ideas and thoughts.
I have an idea for a website! – lol
