Philip K. Dick wrote a novel (?) about a man named Philip K Dick who has a personality named Horselover Fat, (view spoiler)[which is Philip Dick in Latin/German (hide spoiler)]
who loses his mind and develops a cosmology involving a secret race of three-eyed crab-handed people ruling Earth, which is composed of pure information, with time an illusion, and all of us unknowing gods in it. All right, then.
Bonus points for mentioning Parmenides while I'm reading Parmenides. That's some KING FELIX synchronicity right there. What? Exactly.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
