The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.
You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.
We are living in a computer-programmed reality, and the only clue we have to it is when some variable is changed, and some alteration in reality occurs. We have the overwhelming impression that we were reliving the present – deja vu.
The two basic topics which fascinate me are “What is reality?” and “What constitutes the authentic human being?”
The “punch” of a truly weird tale is simply some violation or transcending of fixed cosmic law — an imaginative escape from palling reality — hence phenomena rather than persons are the logical “heroes”.
Our existence is a half-dream and that it is difficult to know where the dream ends and reality begins.
