For this Theory Tuesdays session, Rémi Jaccard has selected the 1978 speech «How to Build a Universe That Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later» (pdf) by Philip K. Dick.

„Philip K. Dick is as well-known today for his era-defining science fiction as he is for the series of unusual experiences he had in the spring of 1974, which he dubbed his «exegesis». Occupying the intersection of the scientific, the philosophical, and the mystical, the exegesis shaped Dick’s work for the remainder of his life. In a 1978 speech titled ‚How To Build A Universe That Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later‘, Dick turns his exegesis-driven inquiry to the nature of reality, the mechanisms of media manipulation, and the most steadfast – the only – defense we have against the indignities of manufactured pseudo-reality.“ -Maria Popova / brainpickings.org

All Theory Tuesdays sessions are free and open to the public, however it’s encouraged that you read the relevant PDF before attending.

The PDF and more info can be found on the Theory Tuesdays Website.
