Some Re-Discovered, and Amazing, Philip K. Dick
Ok, for those who don’t know, Phillip K Dick (PKD) was an underground pulp-sci-fi writer and gnostic mystic who died in the 1980s. His amazingly surreal novels were often about regular people dealing with strange situations & implications of time travel, artificial intelligence and shifting views of fragmented realities - they were adapted into the following movies: A Scanner Darkly, Minority Report, Total Recall, Paycheck,Blade Runner, Impostor & Screamers.
Tonight I was reading a very long PDF of PKD’s legendary 8000 page journal of his mystical experiences and theories about reality. This was a particularly lucid and very emphatic section i wanted to share, in which he describes some very deeply abstracted theories about the core of existence and the observers relationship within it. His descriptions of a universal ‘organizational hyperstructure’ are somewhat like what was later called fractal self-organizing structures and emergent chaotic systems.
