The VALIS Cycle of Philip K. Dick

This is the second in a run of forty blog entries.

Book Cover: VALIS “Dick is one of the ten best American writers of the twentieth century, which is saying a lot. Dick was a kind of Kafka steeped in LSD and rage.”—Roberto Bolaño

VALIS (an acronym for Vast Active Living Intelligence System) is a 1981 science fiction novel by American author Philip K. Dick. The novel follows the journey of protagonist, Horselover Fat, a man struggling with mental illness who eventually discovers he is receiving transmissions from an outside source, a powerful artificial intelligence called VALIS. The novel is structured around the idea that Dick's real life experiences were actually a conscious manipulation by VALIS, and thus the novel is a type of autobiographical fiction.

The novel opens with Horselover Fat, who is reflecting on his mental illness and the events of the past few years that have led him to this point. He reflects on how he has become obsessed with the Bible, and how he has begun to see patterns and correlations between Biblical passages and his own life. He begins to theorize that these correlations between his life and the Bible are being guided by an outside force, which he calls VALIS. He also explains how he has begun to have visions of a pink light, which he believes to be a divine presence.

Over the next two weeks I will be reading the full cycle of three books. You can read it with me if you'd like.

Imagining US Civil War 2.0

Bill Gates warned of a probable civil war. He got covid right. His tabletop pandemic simulation at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health predicted the real thing months before the official outbreak. He even knew to patent the mRNA vaccines. Given his Oracle of Delphi track record, I take his predictions seriously.

I know a little dummy-level macro physics. Quantum physics is beyond my grasp. The Conversion of Energy law states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transferred. At some point an abused population gets pissed. Like steam escaping from a pressure cooker release valve, that anger needs to go somewhere. Either upward toward the ruling class, or poor slob versus poor slob. Otherwise, it explodes like a stainless steel shrapnel bomb, taking out everyone in the kitchen.

When creating the United States, the Founding Fathers borrowed from the Roman republic model. The Roman Empire never experienced revolutions. Rome fought oligarch-backed civil wars. As a general rule, until collapse, global empires experience civil wars, not revolutions. Ironically, like the Roman plutocratic republic, the US plutocratic republic became dysfunctionally corrupt and morphed into a mafia global empire. Like science fiction writer Philip K. Dick repeated throughout his “VALIS” novel- “The (Roman) Empire Never Ended.”

If an empire exports its war machine globally, at some point that war machine comes home. The spiritual laws of karma and secular CIA blowback theory support that idea.

Based on the aforementioned pseudo-theorems, I think it’s worth imagining what a US civil war 2.0 might look like. Too many variables exist to know exactly how it would play out, but using conjecture, I’ll try to cobble together an abbreviated rough theoretical model.

The second chapter of VALIS focuses on Horselover Fat's theories about VALIS and how he believes it is manipulating his life. He recalls his experiences with the pink light, which he believes to be a manifestation of VALIS. He also reflects on the way that he has become obsessed with the Bible, and how he believes it is a form of communication from VALIS. He goes on to explain how he believes that VALIS is trying to communicate a message to humanity, and how he believes he is chosen to be its messenger. He also reflects on his mental health, and how he believes that his mental illness may be a result of VALIS' manipulation of his life.



  • David Jacobs Ph.D., author of "Walking Among Us"

    David M. Jacobs, Ph.D. is Associate Professor of History at Temple University. Having conducted nearly 1,150 hypnotic regressions with over 140 alien abductees, Dr. Jacobs has uncovered, in great detail, the alien interbreeding program designed to create a new race of humans loyal to the alien intervention.

  • Karla Turner Ph.D., author of "Taken"

    Karla Turner, Pd.D. authored three books on the alien abduction phenomenon, Into the Fringe (1992), Taken (1994), and, with psychic Ted Rice, Masquerade of Angels (1994). She was convinced that aliens were here not to help us, but to steal from us the sovereignty of our souls.

  • John Mack, M.D., author of "Passport to the Cosmos"

    Former professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Pulitzer Prize-winning author John E. Mack M.D. conclusively proved that aliens exist through an exhaustive study of people who claim to have been abducted by aliens.


The third chapter of VALIS focuses on Horselover Fat's attempts to understand VALIS and its message. He reflects on how he believes that VALIS is providing him with a new understanding of the world and his own place in it. He also reflects on the way that VALIS has been manipulating his life, and how he believes it is a form of divine intervention. He also reflects on how he believes that VALIS is trying to bring about a new era of peace and understanding in the world. He ends the chapter by examining his own mental health, and how he believes that VALIS can help him come to terms with his illness.

BREAKING: Tucker Carlson Doesn’t Actually Possess Any J6 Footage

Once again, Kevin McCarthy has broken his promise to the American People.

Fox News and Tucker Carlson don’t actually possess any footage from the January 6th, 2021 demonstrations against election fraud at the US Capitol, contrary to previous reports and claims from media outlets and McCarthy’s GOP that more than 41,000 hours of security footage that’s never been seen by the general public had been released, albeit exclusively to Fox News and Tucker Carlson. McCarthy had repeatedly vowed to release the footage to the American People as he ran for Speaker of the House, and some of his critics are now calling for the motion to vacate to be used against him, after breaking his promise and continuing to cover up video evidence that could exonerate J6 political prisoners and expose the real aggressors.

Despite reports from Axios and CNN claiming that GOP House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (CA-20) had released a “trove” of J6 footage to Fox News and Tucker Carlson, new revelations are showing that Carlson isn’t in possession of the footage at all and that Kevin McCarthy hasn’t actually released it. Instead, Carlson’s Fox News team is viewing some of the footage on a terminal in the US Capitol, and there’s been no confirmation that they’ll actually be able to release it to the general public.

Considering the tens of thousands of hours of security footage that exists to sift through, it can safely be assumed that, if the current situation stands, it will be impossible for all of the footage to even be viewed by Carlson’s team, let alone publicly reported on and released.

“A lot of people are getting one thing wrong,” tweeted Politico’s Kyle Cheney. “Tucker Carlson doesn’t ‘have’ any Jan. 6 footage. He hasn’t ‘obtained’ it. His people are viewing it on a terminal in the Capitol and it’s unclear when he’ll get permission to air any of it, let alone lots of it.” Continue reading at National File...




The question is not whether I am willing to die for my rights It is whether you are willing to die trying to take them from me


Jl 2:12-18
Even now, says the LORD,
return to me with your whole heart,
with fasting, and weeping, and mourning;
Rend your hearts, not your garments,
and return to the LORD, your God.
For gracious and merciful is he,
slow to anger, rich in kindness,
and relenting in punishment.
Perhaps he will again relent
and leave behind him a blessing,
Offerings and libations
for the LORD, your God.

Blow the trumpet in Zion!
proclaim a fast,
call an assembly;
Gather the people,
notify the congregation;
Assemble the elders,
gather the children
and the infants at the breast;
Let the bridegroom quit his room
and the bride her chamber.
Between the porch and the altar
let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep,
And say, “Spare, O LORD, your people,
and make not your heritage a reproach,
with the nations ruling over them!
Why should they say among the peoples,
‘Where is their God?’”

[ C O N T I N U E S.... ]


Acts 6:8-15

8 And Stephen, full of grace and power, was performing great wonders and signs among the people. 9 But some men from what was called the Synagogue of the Freedmen, including both Cyrenians and Alexandrians, and some from Cilicia and Asia, rose up and argued with Stephen. 10 But they were unable to cope with his wisdom and the Spirit by whom he was speaking. 11 Then they secretly induced men to say, “We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and God.” 12 And they stirred up the people, the elders, and the scribes, and they came up to him and dragged him away, and brought him before the Council. 13 They put forward false witnesses who said, “This man does not stop speaking against this holy place and the Law; 14 for we have heard him say that this Nazarene, Jesus, will destroy this place and change the customs which Moses handed down to us.” 15 And all who were sitting in the Council stared at him, and they saw his face, which was like the face of an angel.

[ ... C O N T I N U E D ]

Many people associate the season of Lent with Catholicism, but that no longer holds true. Many other churches and people are choosing to observe the forty days (not including Sundays) before Easter. Lent is a time of penance, of choosing to look closely at our lives and invite the Holy Spirit in to help us clean house.

Often we will choose to give up something, a sacrifice we offer to the Lord, but also something we use as a way to remind us to be more holy, more dependent on God. We fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, and we abstain from meat on Fridays as well, although many Catholics do not understand that we still have an obligation to fast on Fridays or substitute another penitential practice year round. We are called to give alms during Lent.

These practices are meant to help us prepare to meet Jesus on Easter Sunday, having walked these six weeks with him toward Calvary, fasting as he fasted in the desert, carrying our cross as he carried his, doing the will of the Father as Jesus taught us so well.

Like Mary, we hope to find ourselves at the foot of the cross on Good Friday, still with our Savior, looking with a more hopeful and receptive heart toward the Resurrection.

If you are not a member of a church, or your particular church does not have any Ash Wednesday service, you are welcome to participate at any Catholic Church. You do not have to be Catholic to attend the service or receive the ashes. I’m sure that is true of other denominations as well. Continue reading at The Conservative Treehouse...

The Dam Is Creaking
If Joe Biden were a Republican, he’d already have taken up residence in a room with soft walls whose door locks from the outside. The media would be blasting him as an enemy of the press. His supposedly record-shattering election victory would have been invalidated on the grounds of blatant, coordinated fraud, which was visible on Election Night in at least six states. A caretaker Administration would be in place, emergency procedures activated for a rerun at the earliest possible time.

The Constitution doesn’t contain any guidance applicable to our current situation. It’s possible that the Founding Fathers could not imagine a stolen election in these United States. Yet that is what we have had. It’s been followed by four months of openly anti-American governance designed to cement the Democrats into permanent federal power, reduce our economy to that of a Third World nation, and eliminate the notion that Americans possess any rights the government is required to respect.

The Age of Fear:  A Graduation Message for Terrifying Times
With all that is crashing down upon us, from government-manipulated crises to the blowback arising from a society that has repeatedly prized technological expedience and mass-marketed values over self-ownership and individual sovereignty, those coming of age today are facing some of the greatest threats to freedom the world has ever witnessed.

It's downright frightening.

Young people will find themselves overtaxed, burdened with excessive college debt, and struggling to find worthwhile employment in a debt-ridden economy on the brink of implosion. Their privacy will be eviscerated by the surveillance state. They will be threatened, intimidated and beaten by militarized police. They will be the subjects of a military empire constantly waging war against shadowy enemies and government agents armed to the teeth ready and able to lock down the country at a moment's notice.

The Second Amendment
The Second Amendment was not limited to muskets any more than the First Amendment was limited to quill pens. The Amendments are technology proof.

The Second Amendment is about protecting the people from a tyrannical government. So it stands to reason that the citizens would need similar weaponry to that which a military soldier would have access to.

If people are only allowed to have slingshots while the soldier has a machine gun, you can see that the whole purpose of the Second Amendment would be completely emptied of its power. You’ve got to have the same resources.

I understand some of the concerns here—such as evil people doing evil things with weapons. Let me be so bold: we can survive evil people doing evil things, but what we cannot endure is a tyrannical government.

The Constitution was not designed to ensure our safety. It was written to protect our freedom. Warrior Poet Society

End Blasphemy End SatanismStop Satanism • Blaspheme Never Again !

The First Amendment protects against the infringement of religion and in so doing, it protects religion itself from blasphemers, heretics, iconoclasts, and apostates.

Satanism is NOT a legitimate religion and does not deserve any protections under the First Amendment.

Satanism exists solely as a repudiation of another religion, Christianity. Satan is NOT a god. He's a flunky. Any worship of Satan is merely a rude gesture AGAINST the God of Christianity. The entire act of worship in Satanism IS flinging an insult at the God of Christianity. As such, it is not the practice of a religion, but rather the practice of an insult.

Neurolinguistic Programming

You may already know that NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The name is derived from three components that most affect our human experience: our neurology, our language, and our programming, or the way in which we have learned to model the world around us. The development of NLP began in the 1970s in California, by Richard Bandler and John Grinder as an innovative approach to psychotherapy, communication, and personal development.

NLP studies the methods, validity and scope involved in what it means to be human on many different levels and dimensions. It focuses on fostering competence and flexibility of behavior, and involves analytical and strategic thought to understand what mental processes are behind human behavior.
