|Elephant tusks in the room in a scene from the movie 'Green Book'|
Not to say that there aren't nuggets of truth throughout the book, but overall ... meh!
I personally think that PKD was just a schizophrenic drugged-up Christian nut-bag, but he did make some good and thought provoking art.
'Aeon Byte' radio podcast site yesterday (above) called -
Finding the Self in a Philip K. Dick World
where a guy who writes with the name Zebra Love was interviewed about some nirvanic state he had reached through meditation and his thoughts about it.
I thought this was going to be an enlightening talk especially when at around the 20 minute mark Zebra mentions being in the middle of writing a second book titled 'Elephant Tusk'.
I listened to this talk after seeing the movie 'Green Book' where in one scene there are a pair of elephant tusks in the room.
I even had a synchronicity before seeing the movie -
Viggo Mortensen and Synchronicity?
And now here was another one involving elephant tusks.
But listening to this Zebra guy prattle on sent me off into a Homer like coma state.
So maybe in a roundabout way Zebra helped me to achieve the state he was talking about?-)
The Zebra podcast got my attention because of the Gordon White talk I was at a few weeks back where a zebra skin was hanging on the wall next to me and made me think of the zebra in the PKD novel.
Having a Devil of a Time on the 13th with Gordon?
The podcasts above are probably worth a listen to, but don't listen while you are driving;-)
