Glimmung: Gyroscope, Teenage Girl & Ocean

September 14, 2007 - alien deity / Philip K. Dick / speculative fiction / technogenesis / temple of cyborgism

I had the great pleasure of reading Phil Dick’s Galactic Pot-Healer (1969) last week. I’m now about to finish The Unteleported Man (1966). Pot-Healer is an extraordinary story of a divine life form from another world (yes, it’s Dick, you probably could have assumed that much) who recruits artisans, scientists and engineers from all over universe to assist in the raising and reconstruction of an ancient temple now buried under the sea. I just can’t bring myself to spoil it for you, so – I’ll save the analysis for later and leave this post as is…go read it!
