  1. He also came up with the theory of reality being a programmed illusion before the scientists today. He had a muse upon him
  2. Thanks for sharing Anna's revered hall of fame for books. Oh yes that one was strange... but if you havent read a book like VALIS, you havent seen nothing yet. I heard a story about Flow My Tears. Phillip had an experience in real life that was exactly like a part in this book he had just published. And this book he wrote ultra fast, he felt like he had been channeling it. Then he told a priest about it and mentioned the story's characteristics and the priest said he was describing the book of Acts. I havent read Flow my tears in a long time, so cant verify it, but that's what I've heard. It was around that time he was experiencing being a christian named Thomas living in Rome at 70 A.D. I heard some of this from a film by Richard Linklater called Waking Life
  3. Also,I have friends who love warhammer 40,000 books.
  4. Please share your top three, or even 5!
  5. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep is a good one. Bladerunner was based off that. There is this great film called A Scanner Darkly by Linklater, which is based off of the novel of the same name. It is brilliant, unique, though very dark and real.
  6. Also, in the realm of E.T. themes... it should be duly, duly, duly noted that Arthur C. Clark is quoted as saying:"One theory which can no longer be taken very seriously is that UFOs are interstellar spaceships." -New York Times Book Review, 07/27/75 And linking it to several other researchers of this field who say: "UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon..." -John A. Keel, UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse, p. 299 Lol, so supernatural and paranormal things along with transhumanism should hit the spot more accurately. Look up "Google Gods" on youtube for a great video on Transhumanism
  7. Absolutely... PKD is scifi perfected. Not about the starship battles or the fireworks or the other planets with tentacle monsters but really bends your mind through other dimensions, so to speak. I remember going through really tough times and afterwards read VALIS... yikes. Then I remember Minority Report the film. Great stuff. I grew up watching Total Recall over and over along with a few other films. Quite fascinating, mind-bending themes that flood his stories. They are so brilliant. They are these perfect puzzles for the mind at times.
  8. Corrupt an Emoticon!

    Yes unfortunately, right there with ya. The way I deal with it is I reply or quote to a post with emojis and then you can see their codes and copy them. For instance is me typing giggle2 squeezed in between : and :

  11. What are you listening to?

    [Admin edit: content removed, not appropriate for this thread] I love the OBWAT videos. Such a lovely hymn that was. I love the Lonesome Valley. And that very last song sung in the film too. The most underrated film.
