    uh wow. Philip K. Dick, while I can’t profess to understand the man, I respect his intellect and believe that what he says he believes. Still, the whole ‘computer program’ idea seems a bit too much for me. The notion of a parallel universe or universes is something I can relate to but a mechanical/electronic fabricated reality that is imposed on us doesn’t seem likely. Fascinating talk.
