Ted Hand and I explore the worlds of the science fiction writer Philip K. Dick and the relationship of his work to Gnosticism, alchemy, Renaissance magic, late capitalism, and power structures. We discuss questions of reality, madness, and a new wave of scholar/practitioners in esoteric studies who are blazing new terrain, bridging personal experience and scholarship. Ted Hand is a scholar of Philip K. Dick and Western esotericism, including Renaissance magic, alchemy, Gnosticism, Hermeticism, and more. He is a teacher by trade, and did his undergraduate studies at UC Davis and graduate studies at Graduate Theological Union at UC Berkeley. Ted is currently working on creating a Philip K. Dick tarot deck. ---Notes--- Ted’s blogs and social media: http://pkdreligion.blogspot.com/ http://alchemicaldiagrams.blogspot.com/ facebook.com/pkdtarot Twitter @t3dy Instagram @t3dyhand Other works mentioned: http://bostonreview.net/literature-culture/henry-farrell-philip-k-dick-and-fake-humans https://urbigenous.net/library/how_to_build.html TechGnosis by Erik Davis The Super Natural by Jeffrey Kripal and Whitley Strieber Ted on Occult Sentinel Podcast: https://occultsentinel.com/2012/10/17/os-ep-38-ted-hand-entering-the-world-of-philip-k-dick/ https://occultsentinel.com/2013/09/11/ted-hand-2/ --- Cover art/logo design by Jeff Wolfe Theme music: A1 Rogue by Poddington Bear
