The Psychedelic Shakespeare Solution presents : I UNDERSTAND PHILIP K. DICK by Terence Mckenna 1991 Afterword which appeared in the book : In Pursuit of Valis: Selections from the Exegesis edited by Lawrence Sutin ____________ True stories have no beginnings and neither does the tale of PKD’s encounters with the Overmind. But we writers understand narrative economy, and for purposes of narrative economy his story seemed to him to begin with the mysterious break in and riffling of his papers that was made notorious by an article in Rolling Stone, which brought Phil long-delayed and much-deserved fame. The break-in date was 11/17/71.
The only reason I signed up in the first place was to crack some skulls. That picture above, courtesy of the DEA, is their Acting Administrator, Michele Leonhart. Recently I wrote that there is no Illuminati, no overarching conspiracy -- no singular group that is controlling everything. Here is a striking example of how interests can converge to create the appearance of a conspiracy, when in fact the individual agents are simply acting in their own best interests.

Hands up everyone whose new year's resolution is to lose weight. Wouldn't it be great if we could just take a pill to shed fat? Time and again "diet pills" have turned out to be useless, dangerous or both – but now there may finally be a safe one that works. Zafgen, a start-up drug company in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has announced that its first human test of a drug named ZGN-433 caused 24 obese women to lose, on average, a kilogram a week for a month – with no harmful side effects. The trial could not be extended past a month without initial safety tests at a range of doses – which was the purpose of this trial. The detailed results will be reported next week at a conference on obesity in Keystone, Colorado.
As you know, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently decriminalized marijuana in his state. And if the polls are to be believed, next month Californians will go a step further and legalize the drug. At that point, the A pot calypse will be upon us. Within a couple years, you won't be able to go into a church or preschool without taking forced bong-hits, dreadlocks will be required to receive Social Security benefits, and our national bird will be replaced by a bag of Sun Chips. So hurry up and watch these Colbert Report clips now, while it's still legal to do it not high.
Have we become a nation of chronic employment? Out in California -- spiritual home to the Grateful Dead, Snoop Dogg, Cheech & Chong and Weeds -- it appears to be the case.
