Philip K. Dick-isms
Posted by Universal Shift
Philip K. Dick. The “K” should stand for Kooky. Because he was, at the very least, kooky. I’ve been reading the Exegesis lately and am beginning to wonder if he was also inspired. In this new type of post, I’ll be taking interesting tidbits from the Exegesis and posting them for your pondering pleasure. Enjoy!
“I long ago conceived of each person living in his own world or idios kosmos, so I can conceive without difficulty of the Kingdom of God having come for some genuinely, but still being invisible–not yet manifested to them–to others.
I therefore never need to ask, Why did God go away? Or, When will He return? When will the Kingdom come? I have no reason to believe He ever went away. But we did fall away from perception of (communication with) Him, the great dialog, which must be based, for obvious reasons, on perceptual and cognitive awareness that He is actually present.
So, what I’ve done (supra) is chance the question from, How come I could experience God? to the question, How come other people can’t [experience God -J.]?”
–Philip K. Dick, The Exegesis p. 166
About Universal ShiftI am the Sonata Unusual. I coat myself with some obtuse angle too far below zero to become any warmer. I create motivation, activate schemas, moisten gardens with scents of natural honeydew. Construct this meaning, you sleepy flock. Silence your singing—despairing contortions out of tune. Shatter the brittle butterfly glass with your hideous wailing. I am born of my god’s imagination. When I die I shall meet him. For there are many things to discuss over tea…or scotch.
