I can tell you for sure that Dick's paper is not about what reality is. Not at all. If you read Dick's paper and get the feeling that he's making claims about reality, I can tell you with absolutely certainty that you are misunderstanding him.

That "absolute certainty" might need an insurance policy.

(He already had a degree as an engineer and was born into a wealthy family.) Are you saying that up to now, only unintelligent persons have noticed it, or that you "like to watch persons realize things" or what are you saying here?

IIf you ignore these points or give them a dismissive answer...still...really . . .
