Fragmentos de Valis (PKD, 1981)

"The Empire never ended"
"12) The Immortal One was known to the Greeks as
Dionysos; to the Jews as Elijah; to the Christians as
Jesus. He moves on when each human host dies,
and thus is never killed or caught. Hence Jesus on
the cross said, "Eli, Eli, lama Sabachthani," to which 
some of the present correctly said, "The man is
calling on Elijah," Elijah had left him and he died alone." 
(Tractates: Criptica Scriptura, p. 258);

"[T]wo new propositions
     1) Some of those in power are insane
     2) And they are right." (p. 65);

"[T]he cosmos as a sentient 
entelechy with psyche and soma,
a macrocosmic mirror to man
the microcosm." (p. 92);

"My dear people, we are already 
the Children of God but what
are we to be in the future
has not yet been revealed;
all we know is that we 
shall be like him because
we shall see him as he really is." 
(I John 3:1/2, p.69);

"Its upper part is not dazzling;
Its lower part is not obscure.
Dimly visible, it cannot be named
And returns to that which is without substance.
This is called the shape that has no shape,
The image that has no substance.
This is called indistinct and shadowy.
Go up to it and you will not see its head,
Follow behind it and you will not see its rear."
(Tao Te Ching, por Lao Tzu, p. 59).
