Galáxia em formação


Um Universo colorido

 

Quando regressamos a casa após mais uma aventura do conhecimento, sentimos que no nosso percurso de viagem algo de fundamental ficou para trás, fazendo-nos sentir nos momentos iniciais de repouso e de reflexão, um vazio enorme e profundo que os nossos sentidos não conseguem de imediato ultrapassar. Isto porque a energia que nos envolve e que proporciona toda a actividade dos nossos órgãos sensoriais, só o é e se materializa se existir movimento.

 

Mas o regresso ao acolhedor ventre do lar deste ser prodigioso e conquistador, logo o leva a aceitar tranquilamente o seu quotidiano sedentário e repetitivo, acabando por abandonar progressivamente os seus valores fundamentais e profundamente enraizados no seu ADN, delegando a sua energia nos outros e a responsabilidade do seu movimento nas crenças destes: expectante e denunciando velocidade nula, eles apenas confirmam um dos limites da teoria. O vazio.

 

Mas felizmente o Universo no seu todo não será apenas um, sendo muito provavelmente constituído por um conjunto de Multi-Universos sobrepostos e concorrenciais, dispondo de frequências coloridas e de amplitudes variáveis de movimento, que na sua diversidade energética e material o confirmarão como um facto e o homem como uma das suas criações. Apenas temos que o receber e usufruir de tudo o que ele nos proporciona: a aventura é uma das formas.

The Man Who Remembered the Future


Philip K. Dick by Anthony Peake

 

Did sci-fi author Philip K. Dick see the future? Could he literally have been precognitive? This is one of the conclusions of a new biography by the consciousness theorist Anthony Peake.

 

It’s over thirty years since the writer’s death, but fascination for the works of Philip K. Dick continues to grow with more than ten major Hollywood movies based on his novels and short stories, including Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report and The Adjustment Bureau. Peake’s new biography shines further light on the man himself, attempting to both sift the details of his complex personal life and penetrate the unique inner life that fuelled his work with something that may have been more than merely imagination.

 

“What I wanted to do was get into the man’s head,” said Peake. “His psychology is as interesting as his novels, [as is] his life itself.” A Life of Philip K. Dick: The Man Who Remembered the Future is the first biography to emerge following the publication of Dick’s Exegesis, the fabled million word late-night diary that was his attempt to fathom the bizarre visionary experiences of 1974, which he termed “2-3-74 and described as “an invasion of my mind by a transcendentally rational mind, as if I had been insane all my life and suddenly I had become sane.”

 

Anthony Peake seems an ideal investigator of Dick’s inner landscape with a back catalogue that includes such titles as The Infinite Mindfield: The Quest to Find the Gateway to Higher Consciousness and The Labyrinth of Time: The Illusion of Past, Present and Future, books unafraid to weave neuroscience, quantum physics and esoteric lore in an effort to engender insights into matter and mind.

 

“A part of [Dick] had always been aware of the future things he was going to encounter,” Peake told The Eternities podcast. “Phil stated many times that his earlier novels were based upon events that happened later in his life. He believes that he was drawing up his inspiration from future memory.”

 

According to Peake, Dick had a sense of another consciousness accompanying him from an early age, and he speculates that this was something like a higher self – called by Peake “the daemon” – which afforded Dick his intuitions and premonitions. And, yet, Dick’s own complex personality seems at times to confound these accounts, as if his prolific fictional output and drug use provoked an intermingling of the real and imagined.

 

Nevertheless, Peake says, “There is no doubt in my mind that Phil did see his own future. The most powerful evidence of this is the letter he wrote to a lady called Claudia Krenz-Bush [where] he describes how he had had hypnogogic images [in which] he saw in absolute detail the body of a portly middle aged man lying faced down between a coffee table and a settee. Handwritten underneath, it says, ‘Claudia, I think I’m becoming precognitive.’” According to the friend who discovered Dick after he had collapsed from the stroke which took his life, this was exactly the position in which he lay.


In both Dick’s life and works, it seems, there may be much for us all to learn about both our minds and the realities they create.
