YouTube Exegesis

Here's a little video somebody posted on youtube to whet your appetite for the Exegesis. It's only a year and a half kids....

Should I really be excited about the Exegis being an interesting, substantive book, or should I worry about it being the incoherent rantings of an ill schizophrenic?

@Wells, I'd lean towards the latter. That's not to say that Dick was incoherent, or schizophrenic for that matter, but the Exegesis seems a very private matter. It was PKD working things out for himself, and I think they can only be worthwhile if read in order to study Dick and what kinds of things were going through his mind at that time. Only for the die-hard Dick scholar, which is why I am happy with the few extracts Sutin collected in his Dick biography.

For anyone who's interested in the soundtrack: it's from the Cronenberg movie "CRASH", based on the novel by the late JG Ballard (another great novelist with visions of our present world).
