Don, Philip K. Dick died in 1982. Tony was being somewhat metaphorical in saying that PKD wrote everything based upon his ideas. The idea here is that the ideas of Is There Life After Death and The Daemon are transcendant ones that people all through time experience.
Philip K. Dick was probably as knowledgeable on the subject matter which informed his fiction and nonfiction as anyone during the time he lived. And yes, he was still questioning the meaning and implication of it all probably even to the moment of his Real Death. Your statement of his lack of real study indicates your own real lack of study into PKD's life and writings. Personally, I don't view Philip K. Dick as a tragic figure at all, everything in his life seems synchrondipitous. As a favor, I ask you to learn more about this man before posting such judgemental, uninformed things again. Thanx.
