Two New Exegesis Excerpts Available At PhilipKDick.com
Two new excerpts from PKD's Exegesis are now posted over at PhilipKDick.com. These two excerpts are coherent and attempt, rather surprisingly, to connect his 2-3-74 experiences to specific church doctrines. They offer further insight into PKD's teleological concerns following his 'mystical experiences'.
Dick writes in one entry, "My search is over. I have reached my destination, the end of my journey."
If PKD had had a penny for every time he felt he had solved 'the mystery' he would have been richer than Rupert Murdoch, er, I mean Palmer Eldritch. Paul Williams wrote in his 1977 article "The Most Brilliant Sci-Fi Mind on Any Planet: Philip K. Dick" "Each time Phil presented a new theory he did it with the passion of complete conviction - this was it, now he had finally figured it out."
In the other entry PKD discusses Spinoza and declares himself a "Trinitarian."
