Review of “How to Build a Universe That Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later” (1978)


Philip K. Dick (writer).

Read in 2020.

What I am saying is this: There is internal evidence in at least one of my novels that another reality, an unchanging one, exactly as Parmenides and Plato suspected, underlies the visible phenomenal world of change, and somehow, in some way, perhaps to our surprise, we can cut through to it.

An excellent guide to Dick’s thoughts in the final phase of his life.
