Reality – That Nebulous Something

PhillipKDickPhilip Kindred Dick is someone who has gone under my radar. I don’t know why–probably because I don’t read much sci fi. He wrote mostly science fiction, but he had interesting things to say about reality. Such as:
 
“It is sometimes an appropriate response to reality to go insane.”
 
“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.”
 
“Don’t try to solve serious matters in the middle of the night.”
 
Recurring themes in his work include false realities, entropy, the nature of God, social control, and man vs. machine. These are all things I think about. Obviously this man has written books I need to read.
