    Bluegreen you have a knack for creating my favourite threads!

    I didnīt bother to read through the small print. I recall that his experience was caused by megadoses of either Vit D or C?
    And that it supposedly "exploded" the pons, like a bride between left and right brain and thus the cosmic floodgates were opened?

    Heīs a trippy writer, I love him! Also quite a druggy, writes a lot about speed/amphetamins, he also did them a lot, this guy turned out book after book after book!

    Phildickian Gnosticism. VALIS, Exegesis... and many other good books, definitely worth reading.

    Interesting anecdote: in 1990 I was on a journey with a group of others in Israël. Visiting the old city in Jerusalem, we stopped to watch a coppersmith at work.

    He had a small piece of copper, about 4 inch by 4 inch. He said "Whoever can guess first what I am making, may have it". He had hardly begun, and after about a minute I said "It is a fish, also the secret sign the first christians had to recognize one another". So, I got the prize! How's that for a phildickian experience? I didn't know about him then. And no, I had no "2-3-74"-experience either. Nevertheless, it is an interesting synchronicity I think.

    By the way, the early christians - when they met someone who they thought was a secret member too, made the ~sign, or half a fish. The other person would then complete "the fish" with a second ~. And they would know that they were both early christians.

    Philip K. Dick has been my favorite Science Fiction since the late 80s, though I really haven't read any Science Fiction since maybe late 1995. Prior to Philip K. Dick, my favorite was Robert Silverberg, whose books I've collected in the hundreds. Sometime during the week or 10 days following July 4, 1995, I was in the back yard reading A Scanner Darkly, when a locust tree about a foot in diameter, fell over and missed my head by about two feet. During that time, I was also reading Seth Speaks, by Jane Roberts, and The Crying of Lot 49, by Thomas Pynchon. Weird week.
    The only place a perfect right angle ever CAN be, is the mind.

    Philip K Dick were a genius, all his works is just great, he was a huge influencer for many arts include writers, theater, music, radio and cinema (hollywood), movies were based on his novels, my favorite one is Blade Runner (based on "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?") and A Scanner Darkly.

    sorry a lit bit off topic here:
    I am surprised didn't find any thread about William Gibson, Vernor Vinge, Neal Stephenson, Cline and even Frank Herbert(found 1 thread) they are all great novelist.

    Amazing thread by the way!!!

    Interesting..

    "So my novel contained material from other parts of the Bible, as well as the sections from Acts. Deciphered, my novel tells a quite different story from the surface story (which we need not go into here). The real story is simply this: the return of Christ, now king rather than suffering servant. Judge rather than victim of unfair judgment. Everything is reversed. The core message of my novel, without my knowing it, was a warning to the powerful: You will shortly be judged and condemned." PKD

    I didn't know who Phillip K. Dick was, until my still inexplicable experiences of 2013.

    I went out with a musician one evening and he asked me if I knew what a pink beam was. Someone got "pink beamed" by me, apparently.

    I looked it up the next day and found Phillip K. Dick.

    A few years later I read his "Exegisis" and knew he was a soul brother. I had the same understandings as he. About his experience: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ex...Philip_K._Dick

    It can be (or was fairly recently) available for free somewhere on the web. A brilliant, brilliant man.

    Edit, Palehorse already provided link explaining meaning. (Many thanks Palehorse!)
