Insight on Omniverse and Philip K. Dick

It is sad that science has the ingrained habit of ignoring anomalies and para-normality, because all matters anomalous contain clues that can be used to solve great mysteries and open the human experience to new and exciting vistas. My entire perspective on Omniverse—the infinite domain of everything we think of as being reality, and everything beyond which we are, perhaps, even equipped to ponder—has been indelibly affected by certain occurrences in my life, experiences that a scientist (as John Casti defines “scientist”) would deem anomalous and irrelevant. Yet those experiences are my touchstones, the facts-of-life in Omniverse which are sources of certainty for me and enable me to generate results anyone can examine. When a scientist denies the reality of such firsthand experiences, I have to laugh because, in hearing those prejudgments, another fact becomes obvious: some intellectual giants are submitting themselves to prescription blinders designed to force them to ignore inconvenient truths that would disrupt their theories, while claiming to do so in the name of objectivity and perceptual purity. Such is scientism—science as religion, a cultural control system. 

During the last ten years, I was slowly introduced to the writings of a philosopher by the name of Philip K. Dick. Dick’s science fiction stories are among the best because they include potent mind-expanding ingredients from the author’s own life. Sadly, like many geniuses through the ages, Phil died too young, in 1982, just as his work was emerging via screenplays beginning with Blade Runner, based on his story: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Few people know that the books he wrote during the last eight years of his life represented a fictionalized version of his personal mystical experiences and his effort to try to understand them. Apart from his published writings, he produced some 8,000 pages of journal notes that reveal his quest for a level of truth that he suspected constitutes taboo territory for mere mortals — perhaps lethal knowledge for beholders. 

Having examined only four of his books and several screenplays based on his work, plus a DVD containing interviews with his friends and associates, I am not a Philip K. Dick scholar, and this post is not meant to serve as a commentary or critique. My purpose here is to consider Dick’s connection to the source of his ideas and experiences, his “communion” with the entity commonly called God, or Collective Consciousness, the entity Phil Dick called VALIS in his writings, the entity I refer to as Source Energy Awareness (SEA) in my Theory of Everything. At times Phil, given to bouts of deep depression, not unlike Vincent van Gogh, felt mentally un-tethered, to the point that he considered he might be schizophrenic, although his paranoia embraced visions of a conspirator who helped him write rather than intending harm. In any case, the purpose of this post is not to evaluate whether Phil Dick was mentally ill, in a clinical sense, but to look at him as a source for better understanding the structure of Omniverse. 

Using my Noetitek™ system, which is based on the principles and patterns of Nature, some years ago I discovered evidence for a nine-dimensional Omniverse having three dimensions of (higher) Consciousness, three dimensions of Time, and three dimensions of Space. Beyond Omniverse there are two more “dimensions,” for lack of a better word. One is Nothingness and the other is Everything-ness or the One. In a sense, Omniverse exists as if between those extreme conceptions/aspects of SEA. Awareness is not Consciousness; it is the source of Consciousness in Omniverse. Consciousness permeates Omniverse “horizontally,” by virtue of the first three dimensions, and vertically, by virtue of its extension into Time and Space, the six-dimensional construct around which that Mass Mind wraps itself, and within which it pursues experiences. 

The conceptual strata of mind held by most psychologists are generally labeled: Conscious, Preconscious, and Subconscious. Mystics often use the corresponding terms: Conscious, Unconscious, and Subconscious, or Conscious, Subconscious, and Supra-conscious. Any of those triune representations is adequate, although I prefer the third set. And, in addition, I see three levels within each set—a flavor of consciousness that relates to each of the nine Omniversal dimensions. Our normal waking consciousness has four parts: the three that relate to the dimensions of Space and one that relates to our ordinary perception of the flowing of Time as part of that.

When we are asleep, meditating, comatose, or near death, most of our Space-related consciousness is shut down and we simultaneously open ourselves to the two higher dimensions of Time and associated aspects of consciousness. But, sometimes, I theorize, we open to the higher dimensions of Time-consciousness while awake. When that happens, we experience things that are real (manifest) and yet dream-like as we have entered into what may be called “the screening room” area of consciousness, the creative workshop of Omniverse. The experiences—often premonitory—are sometimes shared or open to objective verification, although they may be referred to as having taken place in an “altered state” or “non-ordinary” mode of consciousness. 

The higher levels of Time-dimension-consciousness are correspondent with what mystics sometimes call the Astral Plane and what psychologists associate with the “dark side” of the psyche and collective unconscious. It shapes a zone where one may encounter angels and archetypes, sometimes in forms indistinguishable from things more “fully physical.” This, I believe, is the zone Philip Dick frequented to the point that connection was easily made from either “side”—i.e., premeditatedly drawn on or spontaneously received. Evidence for that conclusion is the strange sense of Time that is woven into at least some of his stories. Sometimes he ignored the rules of ordinary Time to the point where happenings in the story occur in sets or sequences that are illogical and impossible in the ordinary world. At times this was intentional, but at other times it appears that it was the inadvertent side-effect of Phil’s attempting to pull an astral story into ordinary time-space without damaging its “feathers.” The effect of reading those particular stories can be subtly un-tethering to the reader. In fact, some of his books can be read for the express purpose of generating useful synchronicities.

    I meditate but I don’t experience premonitions. I assume this is something you have experienced. Can you give an example?

    Last week, before making a scheduled trip to the post office I took fifteen minutes to meditate using Jeffrey Thompson’s “Creative Mind System 2.0” CD. At the point where I was almost asleep, four elaborate images emerged, one after the other, and as I saw them I knew they were potent and interrelated symbols. The first was a bright red pickup truck entering an intersection near my home. All four of the images provided useful insights over the course of the day, but I will mention just the first for the sake of illustration:

    After I set the headphones aside and headed out to the post office, I drove to the intersection that had appeared in my meditation session. I hadn’t gone out of my way to do that; it is the same intersection I drive through every day. At the exact moment that I reached the intersection, a bright red pickup truck drove by in front of me and it was the only vehicle in sight. You can call that a coincidence, but when such coincidences occur several times a day, every day, it would take a blind scientist to ignore the fact that something more is involved.

    You can learn to generate and analyze such images, but for me to try to explain how to do that here would be like trying to teach someone to ride a bicycle by telling them to swing their leg over the frame, sit on the seat, and balance the bike while stabilizing the handlebar and pushing the pedals. My how-to description is not likely to be helpful. You might want to start by reading a book on lucid dreaming or remote viewing.

    Here’s a follow-on to my previous comment:

    Last night I had to use my passenger car to serve as an ambulance. Afterwards I realized a connection between that rescue mission and the week-ago event where I reached the intersection in my car and a red truck passed by (perpendicularly) in front of me, because that was perfectly symbolic of a conceptual intersecting of my Lone-Ranger’s-horse-“Silver”-to-the-rescue vehicle with a red pick-up-and-deliver-something vehicle.

    Carl Jung would call that a meaningful but acausal event that occurred via the Collective Unconscious. I disagree. In my Theory of Everything there is a cause for such synchronicity, but it originates beyond space-time, in the collective consciousness of Omniverse.
