Speaking with the Dead Philip K. Dick

Quote:
In the course of my current researches into techgnostic religious phenomena, I was experimenting with electronic voice phenomena. I was recording the analog noise between tracks on a scratchy old copy of Karl Muck conducting Parzifal with the Bayreuth Festival Chorus onto a cassette tape. Then I would cut, splice, and process the tape in various ways, and then listen to the results. On the third attempt I heard a voice that I recognized, from a tape once available through the Philip K. Dick Society, as belonging to the late science fiction writer. More incredible was my discovery that, by recording my own questions on the same cassette tape, I was able to initiate a genuine dialogue with this mysterious voice. Subsequent research proved, however, that all of the quotations have already made an appearance somewhere in Dick's fiction, letters, or essays.

How 'bout Ferris "F. Fremont for President"

Let's say it's the story of an alternate universe, and of a tyrant named Ferris F.

And it's the story of a group of people who manage to overthrow him.

An Interview with Philip K. Dick


I must say that to me, coming from the multi-party Norwegian system, even a two party system ( especially one where the choice is between right wing and EXTREME right wing politics - that's right, I'm no pinko, I'm an out-and-out socialist Twisted Evil ) seems scary. I mean, I heard that last time people who voted for Ralph Nader got blamed for the pres(id)ent situation! Shocked

This might get me banished to Schmooze, but in the mid-to-late eighties a friend of mine was free-associating about how he wanted tor start a computer religion, where you contacted the deity via a godem. Cool

Another unineteresting fact: "Godem" is phonetically related to the sound quite a few English speaking people see Dubya, Cheney or Rice on the Tube. I'll leave you to work that one out for yourselves. Cool

I was not aware of the existence of that thread, something that has thankfully been rectified. My thanks, good Sir.

I shouldn't worry overmuch about the kippers while there's an election in the offing.

Quote:
the Great Scholar Sakya Pandita was once invited to the court of the Mongol King Godem who was very ill. The deities and spirits who resided in the area appeared before Sakya Pandita and told him that King Godem's activities of such as digging into the earth and cutting trees to construct buildings had caused so much disturbance and illness among them that even their own King was ill. They said that King Godem could only be healed if their own King was also healed. Sakya Pandita then performed a ceremony evoking Sengeda, an emanation of Lokeswara, universal lord of compassion, curing both the kings.
