You move me to make some comments.

>>>Dick himself continues to back off from making his model anything more than a means to represent reality >(and as he has said shouldn't be confused with an attempt to say that this 'is' reality).>Astrology is simply the result of creative human minds being able to apply theoretical notions to actual results.> Unless verifiable predictions are made, there is nothing *scientifically* unique in his model.>>If multiple theories are possible, then scientific realism is threatened (the thesis that says it is possible to construct such viable alternatives is called the strong undetermination of a theory - or SUV). > there's possibly an infinite collection of such proposals waiting in the wings of creative minds.
