real tuff Vleeptron PizzaQ (Bob thinks)!

Okay, no PizzaQ Honor System here, Google all you want, call Klaes in Rotterdam, resort to Remote Viewing, whatever. I think this is worth 2 Large Pizzas with mushrooms, onions and sausage.

Why am I posting the following? Sup with this post? It has a Purpose. What is it?

Is this from PKD's Exegese(pre-VAILS) ?

uhhh ... whatever you're asking ... no.

That ain't the answer to the Vleeptron PizzaQ, but Adam, whoever you are, is one very well-educated fella.

Well, let's see if I can take a crack at the purpose of this. Beckett's said he's not talking about Christianity in "Waiting for Godot," and while the business of naming a frequently mentioned, yet never seen, character "Godot" would suggest otherwise, the crucifix-fetishists aren't the only ones offering up love (or goats, or self-flagellation, etc., etc.) to Yahweh. I'm gonna kind of generalize here and say that all the Yahweh-based religions, at least as interpreted by Western societies, have a pretty similar concept of the nature of the top deity-- omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscience, benevolence. (Even the Jews, who weren't and aren't big on forgiveness, had ways to deal with/ignore the possibility Yahweh wasn't too benevolent to them personally.)

But the play was written during the late `40s and didn't get released until `52. Two world wars had pretty much taken the conceit that reality wasn't such a bad place, thanks to the aforementioned Yahweh and our own free will, and defenestrated it. When the "free" will of entire nations can be manipulated into bureaucratized mass murder, and governments establish state religions or co-opt pre-existing ones with nary a peep, being optimistic about Order and Progress looks gauche. Beckett was a big defender/admirer of James Joyce to boot, so optimism was pretty well lost on him anyway.

Lucky's declaration is his reply when he's told to "think." Pazzo, a man who carries himself like an overseer with Lucky as slave, says that Lucky "used to think very prettily," but shudders at the thought of what would come out of his mouth in the time of "Godot." Lucky's thoughts, like most aware and well-educated peoples' in the aftermath of both wars, were rejections of the idyllic images of the past, and the insanity of reality wasn't about to let itself get expressed in a complete, coherent sentence.

p.s. I have no experience whatsoever with PKD's VALIS or VALIS-inspired writing (though I know what it is, not sure how that fell into this brain of mine), but Dick's sci-fi is pretty damn good. He's one of the few who uses science fiction as a source for real ideas, not just window dressing on potboilers.

Blogger Bob Merkin said...

Adam ... that was fascinating ... I'll give it a B+. But for a college English essay.

It has totally nothing to do with the Vleeptron PizzaQ. No pizza 4 u.

Try not to use that form of The Big Dewd's name, I think He gets steamed when you try to say it out loud. I think that's like Commandment 1.

Also thanks for jogging my pathetic brain that patfromch was talking about Philip K Dick. Doh.

I take a suspicious approach to questions. If I don't understand one, I throw words at it until it goes away.

Gotta say, I'm a fairly Bright Person, got a wall full of diplomas that says so. I have No Idea (TM) what this is about. Ask me about 14th c. liturgies during the Avignon Papacy! Ask me about the order of prayers in 6th c. Coptic eucharistic liturgies, and what colours were worn for each Sunday in the major and minor Basilicas in Rome in the seventh century, and I might have an idea. This...I got nothing.

Yo ... go here ... there's le Hint at the end of this post:

Anonymous patfromch said...

Skipped out for an 0420, came back, looked at the text and then it hit me like a hammer. "Given the existence as UTTERED forth quaquaquaqua"
Quite a few french writers won the Nobel Peace Prize for Literature, the most famous being Albert Camus (The Plague) and bloody Jean-Paul Sartre. I bloody hate Sartre, he was a stupid selfish git. This whole idea about existentialism is just a load of heifer dust if you ask me. James Joyce had clearer views on Society even when he was blind effing drunk.
Anyway, here we go

did you know that Lewis Carrol wrote an essay on the story of Achilles and the Tortoise ? And that Monty Python skit about Sartre ?

Blogger Bob Merkin said...

Oh yes yup yup I know the Carroll and I know the Python. Douglas Hoftsadter also has several Tortoise vs. Achilles dialogues in his book "Metamagical Themas" (or maybe in his more famous "Godel, Escher, Bach").

The thing about Zeno is that, unlike Bischof Berkeley, Zeno had a wicked awesome sense of humor. The whole purpose of his Paradoxes was to drive the smartest people in Greece absolutely crazy because they KNEW Achilles HAD to beat the Tortoise, but they couldn't figure out what was wrong with Zeno's "proof" that Achilles never wins the race. It took Smart People about 2200 years to find the flaw in Zeno. It only took about 200 years to find the flaw in Berkeley's critiques of the Calculus. (They're the same sort of thing.)

They usually just call it "Lucky's Speech" rather than "Lucky's Lament." In "Godot," he only speaks at all because the other characters are threatening him and screaming at him: "Think! Think!" So this is what comes out of Lucky's mouth when he's being forced to Think. And very disturbingly, it sounds verrrrrrry similar to what comes out of Ph.D. Professors' mouths when they're just Professionally Thinking.

When he finishes, one of the other characters grabs the hat from Lucky's head, throws it on the ground and leaps up and down on the hat and yells: "There's an end to your thinking!"

Meanwhile, "uttering" isn't the Clue. There's a clue in what I posted which will point to why I posted it. Maybe you might want to compare the text I posted with the text from

That's 2 Hints.
