SCIENCE FICTION BOOK REVIEW: "What if Our World is Their Heaven? The Final Conversations of Philip K. Dick" (2003)

Republibot 3.0's picture

It is somewhat sad that the New Agers have claimed Phil as their own, because I don’t think he’d like them. Though frequently a slave of his own loins, Phil was no fan of easy morality, nor easy spiritual answers, and he loathed fakers as servants of the lie, the black iron prison (to use his term) that enslaves us to the only-apparently real. Though he didn’t believe the truth was the same for every person, he did believe there was an objective truth. He was messianic, believing that the second coming was here, and the new Messiah was already on earth.
