VALIS (acronym of Vast Active Living Intelligence System from an American film): A perturbation in the internal linkreality field in which a spontaneous self-monitoring negentropic internal linkvortex is formed, tending progressively to subsume and incorporate its environment into arrangements of information.  Characterized by quasi-consciousness, purpose, intelligence, growth and an armillary coherence.

- Great Soviet Dictionary, Sixth Edition 1992

In the excepts of the Exegesis reworked into the "Tractates Crytptica Scriptura" that close the novel _VALIS_, internal linkPhilip K. Dick expresses the internal linkMIT computer scientist Edward Fredkin's view that the universe is composed of internal linkinformation. The world we experience is a internal linkhologram, "a hypostasis of information" that  we, as internal linknodes in the true Mind, internal linkprocess. "We hypostasize information into objects. Rearrangement of objects is change in the content of information. This is the internal linklanguage we have lost the ability to read." With this Adamic code scrambled, both ourselves and the world as we know it are "occluded," cut off from the brimming "internal linkMatrix" of cosmic information. Instead, we are under the sway of the "Black Iron Prison," Dick's terms for the demiurgic worldly forces of political tyranny  and oppressive social control. Rome is the eternal paragon of this "Empire," whose internal linkarchetypal  lineaments the feverish Dick recognized in the Nixon administration.
 
Philip K. Dick Information in formation

Following this event, Dick experienced a remarkable series of visions, hallucinations, and internal linkdreams,  many of which centered around VALIS, a "Vast Active Living Intelligence System" that he defined in his internal link1980 novel of the same name as a "spontaneous self-monitoring negentropic internal linkvortex...tending to progressively subsume and incorporate its environment into arrangements of information." Not a bad definition of the internal linkInternet, though Dick experienced this incoming information web far more internal linkintensely  than today's online grazers. Sometimes it struck him as a pink beam of esoteric data, or as a compassionate feminine "internal linkAI [Artificial Intelligence] voice" speaking to him from outer space. Other times, Dick felt he was in telepathic communication with a first-century christian named Thomas, and  once "the landscape of California, U.S.A. 1974 ebbed out and the landscape of Rome of the first century C.E. ebbed in."

ON OUR NATURE. It is proper to say: we appear to be internal linkmemory coils (internal linkDNA carriers capable of experience) in a computer-like thinking system which, although we have correctly recorded and stored thousands of years of experiential information, and each of us possesses somewhat different deposits from all the other life forms, there is a malfunction - a failure- of memory retrieval. There lies the trouble in our particular subcircuit. "Salvation" through gnosis - more properly internal linkanamnesis (the loss of amnesia) - although it has individual significance for each of us - a internal linkquantum leap in internal linkperception, identity, cognition, understanding, world- and self-experience, including internal linkimmortality - it has greater and further importance for the system as a whole, inasmuch as these memories are data needed by it and valuable to it, to its overall functioning. Therefore it is in the process of self-repair, which includes: rebuilding our subcircuit via linear and orthogonal internal linktime  changes, as well as continual signaling to us to stimulate blocked memory banks within us to fire and hence retrieve what is there.
 
DNA Sirius A & B

The external informational or gnosis, then, consists of disinhibiting instructions, with the core content actually intrinsic to us - that is, already there (first observed by Plato; viz: that learning is a form of remembering).

The ancients possessed techniques (sacraments and rituals) used largely in the Greco-Roman mystery religions, including early Christianity, to induce firing and retrieval, mainly with a sense of its restorative value to the individuals; the Gnostics, however, correctly saw the ontological value to what they called the Godhead Itself, the total entity.

Two realms there are, upper and lower. The upper, derived from hyperuniverse I or Yang, Form I or Parmenides, is sentient and volitional.  The lower realm, or Yin, Form II of Parmenides, is mechanical, driven by blind, efficient cause, deterministic and without intelligence, since it emanates from a dead source. In ancient times it was termed "astral determinism." We are trapped, by and large, in the lower realm, but are through the sacraments, by means of the internal linkplasmate, extricated. Until astral determinism is broken, we are not even aware of it, so occluded are we. "The Empire never ended."

The name of the healthy twin, hyperuniverse I, is internal linkNommo. The name of the sick twin, hyperuniverse II, is Yurugu. These names are known to the internal linkDogon people of western Sudan in Africa. (*Nommo is represented in a fish form, the early Christian fish.)

The primordial source of all religions lies with the ancestors of the Dogon Tribe, who got their cosmogony and cosmology directly from the three-eyed invaders who visited long ago. The three-eyed invaders were mute and deaf and telepathic, could not breath our atmosphere, had the elongated misshapen skull of Ikhnaton, and emanated from a planet in the star-system internal linkSirius. Although they had no hands, but had, instead, pincer claws such as a crab has, they were great builders. They covertly influence our history toward a fruitful end.

From _VALIS_ by Philip K. Dick

It all had to do with internal linktime.  "Time can be overcome," Micrea Eliade wrote.  That's what it's all about.  The great internal linkmystery of Eleusis, of the Orphics, of the early christians, of Sarapis, of the Greco-Roman mystery religions, of internal linkHermes Trismegistos, of the Renaissance Hermetic internal linkalchemists, of the Rose Cross Brotherhood, of Apollonius of Tyana, of Simon Magus, of Asklepios, of Paracelsus, of internal linkBruno, consists of the abolition of time.  The techniques are there.  Dante discusses them in the _Comedy_.  It has to do with the loss of amnesia;  when forgetfulness is lost, true internal linkmemory spreads out backward and forward, into the past and into the future, and also, oddly, into alternate universes;  it is orthogonal as well as linear.

excerpts from the Tractates:
 
VALIS

22. I term the internal linkImmortal one a internal linkplasmate, because it is a form of energy; it is living information.  It replicates itself - not through information or in information - but as information.

31.  We hypostatize information into objects.  Rearrangement of objects is change in the content of the information; the message has changed.  This is a internal linklanguage which we have lost the ability to read.  We ourselves are a part of this language; changes in us are changes in the content of the information.  We ourselves are information-rich; information enters us, is internal linkprocessed and is then projected outward once more, now in an altered form.  We are not aware that we are doing this, that in fact this is all we are doing.

36.  In summary; thoughts of the brain are experienced by us as arrangements and rearrangements - change - in a physical universe; but in fact it is really information and information-processing which we substantialize.  We do not merely see its thoughts as objects, but rather as the movement, or, more precisely, the placement of objects: how they become linked to one another.  But we cannot read the patterns of arrangement; we cannot extract the information in it - i.e. it as information, which is what it is.  The linking and relinking of objects by the Brain is actually a language but not a language like ours (since it is addressing itself and not someone or something outside itself).

37.  We should be able to hear this information, or rather narrative, as a neutral voice inside us.  But something has gone wrong.  All creation is a language and nothing but a language, which for some inexplicable reason we can't read outside and can't hear inside.  So I say, we have become idiots.  Something has happened to our intelligence.  My reasoning is this: arrangement of parts of the Brain is a language.  We are parts of the Brain; therefore we are language.  Why, then, do we not know this?  We do not even know what we are, let alone what the outer internal linkreality is of which we are parts.  The origin of the world "idiot" is the word "private."  Each of us has become private, and no longer shares the common thought of the Brain, except at a subliminal level.  Thus our real life and purpose are conducted below our threshold of consciousness.

The first of Dick's three final novels (the others are _Divine Invasion_ and _The Transmigration of Timothy Archer_). Known as internal linkscience fiction only for lack of a better category, "Valis" takes place in our world and may even be semi-autobiographical. It is a fool's search for god, who turns out to be a virus, a joke, and a mental internal linkhologram transmitted from an orbiting satellite.

The proponent of the novel, Horselover Fat, is thrust into a theological quest when he receives communion in a burst of pink laser internal linklight. From the cancer ward of a bay area hospital to the ranch of a fraudulent charismatic religious figure who turns out to have a direct com link with god, Dick leads us down the internal linktwisted paths of Gnostic belief, mixed with his own bizarre and compelling philosophy. Truly an eye opening look at the nature of consciousness and divinity.

Synopsis
Valis, the disorienting and eerily funny centerpiece of Philip Dick's final trilogy that includes The Divine Invasion and The Transmigration of Timothy Archer, is part science fiction, part theological detective story--in which god is both missing person and the perpetrator of the ultimate crime.
