Last night I was on youtube and I came across a do***entary on Phillip K Dick. It was presented in a style of an dramatise FBI investigation. Two agents going through Phillip K Dick life, building a picture of the man himself. It contained interviews of former friends, colleagues, wives and even his psychologist. All the interviews were presented in almost a timeline of his life. It followed his early struggles, living in poverty (at one stage eating dog biscuits). Through his stages of drug use and the stated of his mind. He truely plunged into madness, it was almost like he believed what he wrote was real. Towards the end of his life, phillip seemed to find his balance in life. But sadly pasted on, in my opinion too young and too early. But in the words of J.W Jeter " thank god he didn't die a madman". I saw through these interviews a real human being, a person well respected and loved by his friends. All in all, I found he was an outstanding writer and a inspirational person.

Just to clarify a item in the OP. When I said that he actually believe what he was writing is actually real. Some of the themes in his work question reality, different dimensions and parallel universes. Later on in his life he gave an interview in france. In which he in a way stated that he was from one.

Thanks Pulserifle! That's an excellent do***entary, I have seen it before and loved it. Gonna watch it again. Yeah he was a character for sure, very unique man. I especially like the story he told about his seeing a 'healing' beam of light that helped him save his son's life. You never know what might be real in this universe. It's like the quote from [b]William Shakespeare's[/b] 'Hamlet': [i]"There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."[/i] Have you heard this Philip K. Dick interview? It's one of the last recordings before he died and very interesting. [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXqHJYz8NXo]Rare 1979 Philip K. Dick interview[/url]

DEUS IRAE (Judgment Day)
by PKD & Roger Zelazny (1976)
It was as if Pris, to me, were both life itself - and anti-life, the dead,
the cruel, the cutting and rending and yet also the spirit of existence
itself. Movement: she was motion itself. Life in its growing, planning,
calculating, harsh, thoughtless actuality.

I could not stand having her around me; I could not stand being without
her. Without Pris I dwindled away until I became nothing and eventually died
like a bug in the backyard, unnoticed and unimportant; around her I was slashed,
goaded, cut to pieces, stepped on - yet somehow I lived; in that, I was real.

Did I enjoy suffering? No. It was that it seemed as if suffering was part of
life, part of being with Pris. Without Pris there was no suffering, nothing
erratic, unfair, unbalanced. But also, there was nothing alive, only small-time
schlock schemes, a dusty little office with two or three men scrabbling in the
sand.

@svanya and sawa. I just finished listening to the interview you posted svanya. He sounds like a very interesting person. I loved some of the points he made about the rationale comes from the irrational. His ideas of the subjective mind and a person's subjective worlds I found inspirational. It added more depth and insight to his own works . I think I need more time to read PDK works. Thank you both for you input. It's been fantastic.
