Do not want to take up too much of your time or space on this message board but I am struck by a reoccurring image in Dick's fiction. In Valis Dick describes the eight hours of phosphene activity he had mentioned earlier in Scanner Darkly in terms of the canvases of Paul Klees and Picasso.I know from reading biographical material that this is a reference to his own experience by am struck by the fact that he also describes the hallway in The Simulacra as having the same paintings. Do you know if this is just an arbitary choice or if these canvases held any particular personal meaning or interest for him? Sarah-- I do not know personally Phil's tastes in vicual art, but i am certain that we writers often reveal such things to perceptive readers by way of what we find ourselves repeating. Thank you for making the connection between what PHil wrote in The Simulacra in 1963 and what he reported he experienced 10 or 12 years later. Of course Klee and Picasso were reference points for him when he had his disorienting visual experiences in '74-'75 (referresd to in this Scanner Darkly passage) because he was already familiar with (and intrigued by) their work. Phosphene avity, like dreams, depends for its content on what is alreay present in our brains and memories. What most intrigues us and holds our attention is certainly what find its way, rpeatedly, into our writings, our own artworks. Again, I thank you and congratulate you for your good scholarship! Phil's novels, like anyone's, are a sort of diary. bes wishes, Paul Williams
