‘Today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups […] So I ask, in my writing, What is real? Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo-realities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. I do not distrust their motives; I distrust their power. They have a lot of it. And it is an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind. I ought to know. I do the same thing’
Philip K. Dick, How To Build A Universe That Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later, 1978
