In physical reality back down in the Black Iron Prison, control of the means of production- and the human workers who toil as slaves – is EVERYTHING.
We exist because a higher entity dreams. The entity’s dreams express themselves as stories. These stories exist imaginally, and physically. Anyone can see this is true- nothing expressed physically exists before the concept of it is brought into consciousness first.
One might argue that natural phenomena exist without prior thought. But that is to mistake perception for the gross reality which our lower senses elevate to total reality. This is NOT total reality. Total reality is dream + story + idea + physical realm.
Gautama Buddha: with our thoughts we shape the world.
New Testament: faith can move mountains and WILL when you address your mind and spirit properly to the task. Jesus could not heal the faithless. What is called the Holy Spirit, or the Comforter, the Defender, is the animating principle of reality.
Philip K. Dick knew this instinctively and reached for it again and again ever more clearly before his premature passing from this realm.
In my own work, Swamp Man is the latest attempt to explain and express these ideas, but many of my past works touch on it in a more feeble and incoherent way.
