Philip K. Dick の神秘体験の詳細

はじめに


・Philip K. Dick の神秘体験のあらましについては下の過去記事で孫引きした。


1974年2月20日、ディックは親知らずを抜き、その際のチオペンタールの効果から回復しつつあった。追加の鎮痛剤の配達を受け取るためドアに応対に出ると、女性配達員が彼が "vesicle pisces" と呼ぶシンボルのペンダントを身につけていることに気づいた。この名称は彼が2つの関連するシンボルを混同していることに起因すると見られる。1つは2つの弧を描く線が交差して魚の形になっているイクトゥスで、初期キリスト教徒が秘密のシンボルとして用いたものである。もう1つは2つの円が交差した形の vesica piscis である。女性配達員が立ち去ると、ディックは奇妙な幻覚を体験し始めた。当初は鎮痛剤に起因するものと思われたが、何週間も幻覚が続いたためディックは鎮痛剤のせいだけではないと考えた。「私の心に超越的で理性的な精神が侵入するのを体験し、これまで正気でなかったのが突然正気になったかのように感じた」とディック自身がチャールズ・プラットに語っている[23]。

1974年の2月から3月まで彼は一連の幻覚を体験し、これを "2-3-74"(1974年2月-3月の意)と名付けた。ディックによれば、最初はレーザービームと幾何学模様の幻覚が見え、時折イエス・キリストや古代ローマの幻影が見えたという。幻覚は長さと頻度が増していき、ディックは自分が「フィリップ・K・ディック」であると同時にローマ人に迫害された紀元1世紀のキリスト教徒「トーマス」でもあり、二重の人生を生きていると主張し始めた。

・この神秘体験を詳しく記載した記事を見かけたので記録しておく。

・その神秘体験の中には

This was only bolstered by the appearance of “three-eyed extraterrestrial time travelers” who would sometimes come through the mysterious pink light to speak with him, and the story they had was a wild one indeed.


He was told by these entities that time had actually been stopped in 70 AD, right about when the Romans had destroyed the temple of Jerusalem, and that all of the history that he thought he knew was a deception and an illusion by what they called “the Black Iron Prison.


 というように、ET も登場し、重要なメッセージを彼に与えている。


一部引用



In February of 1974, Dick underwent dental surgery in order to get a wisdom tooth pulled that had been troubling him. It was a fairly standard procedure, nothing too serious, but it would lead to an incredibly bizarre experience for Dick. Just after the surgery he was at home in pain as the anesthetic wore off when he had a visitor at his doorbell. When Dick opened the door, he did so to find an attractive young woman standing there with black hair and large eyes, and wearing a gold necklace with a glinting gold medallion in the shape of a fish, which she said was a Christian symbol and which provoked a mysterious sense of potent deja vu in the author that he couldn’t shake. Dick asked her what she wanted and she merely said that she was a delivery person from the pharmacy, and that she was there to drop off his medication, and the author, still confused by his sense of familiarity with that medallion, took the package and went back to his room. It was at this moment that he would have the first of a series of deep, enigmatic visions that would shake his view of reality to the core.


Just after closing the door and heading back inside, Dick would claim that he had been staggered by a sudden, extremely brilliant pink light that washed over everything, at the same time implanting a stream of strange images into his mind, including geometric patterns, images of places long past, odd paintings, philosophical ideas, and even what he described as blueprints for advanced machines. Over the next several months these visions would come in bursts and waves, and he became ever more convinced that they were being beamed into his head by outside forces. Dick himself would say of this, “I experienced an invasion of my mind by a transcendentally rational mind, as if I had been insane all my life and suddenly I had become sane.”

As the outlandish visions continued, he began to find that often as he went about his daily business he would see his surroundings with what appeared to be images of ancient Rome superimposed over them, and this would sometimes be incredibly vivid, complete with Roman centurions walking about and scenes from the past playing out over the mundane of his normal reality. As these hallucinations continued to get progressively intrusive, Dick began to come to a sobering realization of what it all meant, which would take the whole tale deeper into the strange. Dick increasingly suspected that what he was seeing was the actual days of the Roman Empire creeping into his reality, and not only as ghosts of the past, but rather he believed that in reality the age of Rome had never died at all, and was living on as a sort of shadow existence parallel to ours. This was only bolstered by the appearance of “three-eyed extraterrestrial time travelers” who would sometimes come through the mysterious pink light to speak with him, and the story they had was a wild one indeed.


He was told by these entities that time had actually been stopped in 70 AD, right about when the Romans had destroyed the temple of Jerusalem, and that all of the history that he thought he knew was a deception and an illusion by what they called “the Black Iron Prison.” Not only this, but Dick was informed that he was actually an early Christian spy seeking to overthrow the Romans, as was the mysterious delivery girl with the gold necklace, which was why he had recognized her, with her flashing of that medallion being the key through which he had been awakened to the illusion and deception. Interestingly, this was all accompanied by infusions of esoteric knowledge and guidance by benevolent spirits who seemed to have come to help him on his mission.
