So I was surfing the Zaadz blogosphere when I saw this.

"Wilber begins with one of my favorite books, Douglas Adams’ The
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Great, I thought, a fellow
Hitchhiker’s fan! But, he immediately gets it wrong, seriously wrong,
several times…. If Wilber can’t be bothered to get this right, then (I asked myself) how trustworthy could he be on a more serious subject such as “a brief history of everything”?

Good point. Read more for context. But I haven’t read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I only saw the movie. So you tell me 🙂

Or, maybe it’s because Ken Wilber is an idiot (savant)?
