Information in formation Symbiosis - silicon organic...

“Philip K. Dick, in one of his last novels, internal link_Valis_ discusses the long hibernation of the internal linkLogos.  A creature of pure information, it was buried int he ground at Nag Hammadi, along with the burying of the Chenoboskion Library circa 370 A.D.  As static information, it existed there until internal link1947, when the texts were translated and read.  As soon as people had the internal linkinformation in their minds, the internal linksymbiote came alive, for, like the internal linkmushroom consciousness, Dick imagined it to be a thing of pure information.  The mushroom consciousness is the consciousness of the Other in internal linkhyperspace, which means in internal linkdream and in the internal linkpsilocybin internal linktrance, at the internal linkquantum internal linkfoundation of being, in the human future, and after death.  All of these places that were thought to be discrete and seperate are seen to be part of a single continuum.  History is the dash over ten to fifteen thousand years from nomadism to flying saucer, hopefully without ripping the envelope of the planet so badly that the birth is aborted and fails, and we remain brutish prisoners of matter.”

Drug misuse is not a disease, it is a decision, like the decision to step out in front of a moving car. You would call that not a disease but an error of judgment. Philip K. Dick (1928-82), U.S. internal linkscience fiction writer. A Scanner Darkly, “Author’s Note” (1977).

The basic tool for the manipulation of internal linkreality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words. Philip K. Dick (1928-82), U.S. science fiction writer. I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon, Introduction, “How to Build a Universe That Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later” (1986).

Within the armor is the internal linkbutterfly and within the butterfly is the signal from another star.   – Philip K. Dick

…the internal linknoosphere…no longer served as a mere passive repository of human internal linkinformation (the “Seas of Knowledge” which ancient internal linkSumer believed in) but, due to the incredible surge of charge from our electronic  signals and information-rich material therein, we have given it power to cross a vast threshold; we have, so  to speak, resurrected what Philo and other ancients called the internal linkLogos. Information has, then, become alive…”

    – Philip K. Dick – _Man, Android & Machine_

Like internal linkThomas Pynchon, Dick was obsessed with the second law of thermodynamics, and he coined words like kipple and gubble to denotes the corrosive power of entropy and its ability to render form into formlessness. Along with internal linkNorbert Wiener, Dick viewed entropy metaphysically, casting it in some tales as evil incarnate or as the sign of some cosmic Fall. In contrast to this, Dick later came to laud the positive and “negentropic” (or anti-entropic) power of internal linkVALIS’s restorative information. This makes good human sense: as finite, far-from-equilibrium organisms, we are whirlpools of order and information whipped together for a time against the steady downstream drift of entropy.

– Erik Davis – _Philp K. Dick’s Divine Interference_

“..He saw outside him the pattern, the print, of his own brain; he was within a world made up of his brain, with living information carried here and there like little rivers of internal linkshining red that were alive. He could reach out, therefore, and touch his own thoughts in their original nature, before they became thoughts. The room was filled with their fire, and immense spaces streched out, the volume of his own  brain external to him…That which was below, his own brain, the micrososm, had become the macrocosm, and inside him as microcosm now, he contained the macrocosm, which is to say, what is above. I now occupy the entire universe, Emmanuel realized; I am now everywhere equally.”

— Philip K Dick : From _The Divine Invasion_

Dick’s ’60s work involved increasingly fantastic scenarios of internal linklooped internal linktime, nested hallucinations, unreliable internal linkmemory, and paranoid  despair. In 1974 the burned-out author experienced a  revelatory “divine invasion” sent courtesy of a Vast  Active Living Intelligence System, or internal link_VALIS_atomjacked inventory cache. Dick’s  novels _The Divine Invasions_(1981), _VALIS_ (1981),  and _The Transmigration of Timothy internal linkArcher_ (1982)  represent his subsequent attempts to reconcile  radical ontological doubt with ethics based on  human empathy.

Nicole Panter met another friend, famed science fiction writer Philip K. Dick, when she photographed him for a _Slash_ interview. “My friendship with Phil was based on our shared neuroses and fascination with pharmaceuticals… and depression. It was a good friendship. A lot of people, guys especially, would just go down there and hang on his every word. I was _special_ by virtue of the fact that I hadn’t read his stuff.. After he died, I knew him so well by that time that I couldn’t bear to read it because it would have broken my heart.”

Nicole Panter can be seen in the film internal link_The Decline Of Western Civilization_ (vhs/ntsc)atomjacked inventory cache(internal link1980) directed by Penelope Spheeris.  She is the manager of The Germs.  Her father was the inventor of the Philadelphia Cheesesteak.

The artist, Aristotle says, imitates Nature. The internal linktrickster, practical joker and counterfeiter also imitate Nature, if you think about it. Certain insects imitate Nature so successfully that they become invisible, except to those who look at all things with suspicious eyes; and Philip K. Dick has internal linkmemorably suggested that we may share space-internal linktime with “Zebra,” a hypothetical internal linkgaian intelligence that we can’t see because it disguises itself as the whole environment.
