Tion of the condition by the novel s protagonist Jack Bohlen True autism Jack had decided was in the last analysis an apathy toward public ndeavor it was a private Hard Pushed existence carried on as if the individual person were the creator of all value rather than merely the repository of inherited values Whether this is medically accurate or not it fits in with our poor hero s sense of isolation after suffering a schizophrenicpisode while living on Earth There is another interpretation by another character in the book a Dr Glaub who theorises that a fundamental disturbance in time sense is the basis of schizophrenia This means that according to this theory schizophrenic perceives time at a different rate from the rest of us Manfred an autisticschizophrenic boy in the book perceives most people as moving in high speed blurs practically teleporting from one location to another and talking high speed gibberish hence his sense of isolation from the rest of humanityThe story set in a colonized Mars but not a realistic Mars as depicted by books like Red Mars and The Martian Mars in this book is habitable the atmosphere is breathable there is a severe water shortage but water is available in the legendary Martian canals Dick was not interested in the terraforming process of Mars to make it livable for humans he is interested in Mars as a setting for the characters with mental issuesAfter listening to Dr Glaub s theory ruthless businessman Arnie Kotts has the notion that a schizophrenic should be able to access information about the future as their distorted perception of time should logically give them precognition ability Later on he further xtends this notion to cover an ability to alter the past From these strange notions Kott put into action to acuire Manfred the autistic schizophrenic boy and to hire Jack Bohlen to build an nvironment that will slow down sound and vision input sufficiently to Charlie Hernndez the League of Shadows enable communication with Manfred Things of course do not go according to plan Martian Time Slip is uintessential 60s PKD short strange and surreal this is how I like my PKD with reality warping and bending into weird shapes Dick was no stranger to mental illness and hallucinations his characters with mental issues tend to be portrayed sympathetically The book is not in the same league as Dick s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep or Ubik but it is anxcellent read and I heartily recommend itNoteThe Martians in this book are not little green men they look like wizened dark skinned humans I ll be darned Leo laughed So those are Martiansthey look like aboriginal Negroes like the African Bushmen It is characteristic of Philip K Dick s rather peculiar approach to narrative incident that he chooses to focus his story of Martian time travel on the man in charge of the local Water Workers Union You can be sure that if he d The Little Book of Comfort ever written a book about the fateful Terra Nova Expedition to the South Pole it would have concentrated on the travel agent that had arranged Scott s boat out of SouthamptonThis one begins then a little slowly and also has a few awkward traces of outdated sexual and racial attitudes that made me wonder if the whole thing would be a dud But the weirdness that gradually intrudes on the plot makes it well worth a little patience it s one of the clearestxpressions of Dick s fixation on disturbed mental states that I ve yet readThe novel s most Dancing on the Ceiling essential andnigmatic character is a small boy who is described as being autistic or schizophrenic we never really understand him or hear his voice directly in any but the most confusing circumstances It s not clear whether his diagnosis corresponds with how modern clinicians would use these medical terms or whether it s some futuristic sci fi uivalent but what is clear is that for Dick these conditions are useful mainly as a shorthand for talking about alternative interpretations of realityInstead of a psychosis he had thought again and again it was on the order of a vision a glimpse

PROSAIC STRUGGLE TO GET THROUGH OURstruggle to get through our lives The veryday life of frontier housewives on the Martian frontier doesn t seem very far from the bored suburban lives of 1950 s AmericaIt s a telling detail that there are native Martians in this world but they occupy a marginalized role as primitive aboriginals living on the outskirts of the human colonies hardly worthy of attention And yet the only character in the story who can communicate with autistic boy Manfred Steiner whose powers of seeing the future and affecting reality are central to the story is a highly Notes for the Everlost educated but bitter Bleekman aboriginal named Heliogabalus apparently a reference to Syro Roman sun god Elagabalus Some of his comments are deliciouslyrudite and droll and come in stark contrast to the crude pompous and utterly self absorbed union head Arnie KottPKD returns again and again to his recurring images of death When I Moan (Vassi and Seri 1: Russian Stepbrother Romance) entropy madness and despair known variously as kipple Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep the Tomb World UBIK and now the only worlds uttered by Manfred Steiner gubble gubble He is a master at pulling the rug out from under his characters realities and the readers as well and plunging us into his own introspective humorous ironic and paranoid vision of the worlds we all inhabit I usually like no love PKD stories but this one made me shake my head so many times I admit to being pretty disappointed I have loved nearlyverything I ve read by PKD but not this one I find it unbelievably dated Especially when it concerned mental health or what we now call neurodiversity and ven racism and cultural bias And why didn t any SF writers from the 50s and 60s anticipate digital I don t normally fault authors for that because it s so widespread I didn t hate it mind you There s other stuff to appreciate that almost redeem the novel how Jack and Sylvia find their way back to one another and the Bleekmen s roleEdit after thinking about it and discussing it with my Buddy Readers on the SpecFic Buddy Reads group I ve decided to raise my rating to 35 stars rounded up PKD is a brilliant writer and I think I ve decided to raise my rating to 35 stars rounded up PKD is a brilliant writer and I think I too struck by the racism sexism and general nastiness of one character and rather than take it as a criticism by the author I took it as perhaps the author s view which I m pretty sure is incorrect Gubble me she said Gubble gubble me put your gubbish into me into my gubbish you Gubbler Gubble gubble I like gubble Don t stop Gubble gubble gubble gubble gubble That there is some beautiful dialogue from PKD s wacky 1964 novel Martian Time Slip I remember reading this in the 80s but I have practically no memory of the plot However I do remember all this Gubble gubble business very vividly There is a surreal hallucinatory feeling to it that I will never forgetThe title Martian Time Slip is almost misleading Yes there are Martians in this book ad there is an lement of time travelling in the story but Crush It! essentially the book is concerned with psychoses particularly autism and schizophrenia The sci fi shenanigan of the story takes a backseat to the focus on various characters mental andmotional issues I know very little about schizophrenia but this is the interopera.

colonies formed by citizens from such countries as Russia Israel and the United States This framework is all the author needs to Bird-by-Bird Gardening explore anntire range of very human topics from the impact of technology on The Works of Saint Augustine education to the conseuences of limited water supply Since the story is too vintage PKD over the top crazy and convoluted for any simple overview or synopsis allow me instead to highlight a number of the many colorful characters and themes Jack Bohlen Anlectronics machine repairman living with his wife and son out in the Martian desert living very much like thousands of middle class suburban families back on Unbuttoning the CEO (The Suits Undone earth All the way to Mars for this But the real action for Jack is on the inside he has to deal with his past schizophrenia While on a job at his son s public school he has a flashback of a hallucination when he was in an interview with a personnel manager in California he could see through the man s skin to his skeleton where the bones were all connected by copper wire and all his internal organs were plastic and stainless steel And this only for starters Jack s visions and hallucinations become disturbing his schizophrenia resurfaces and threatens to destroy his Martian life Arnie Kott Blustering self absorbed business leader it s as if PKD had a flash of insight into the future and anticipated a well known current day president with the initials DT from the constant gush of harsh words issuing from his big mouth down to his fat white toes Dickheads and Dickhead wannabes should most definitely put Martian Time Slip at the top of their list for this reason alone As anybody with a shred of aesthetic sense will undoubtedly realize having someone like Arnie on Mars uickly turns the red planet into a red hell realm And what ultimately happens to Arnie PKD couldn t hold backDoreen Anderton Girlfriend of Arnie who comes to love Jack a stunningly beautiful redhead who also is the novel s most intelligent perceptive sensitivearthling on Mars Doreen is particularly attuned to the dynamics of schizophrenia since she had a brother back on My Teacher Is a Robot earth who suffered from the disorder and subseuently committed suicide At one point Doreen draws on her past observations of her schizophrenic brother to warn Jack of his possible psychic collapse unless he takes the necessary steps to stop work on his current project A lovely young lady with wisdom and compassion a fabulous combination Thanks Phil Bleakmen The tribespeople living as hunter gatherers on Mars for thousands of years prior to the arrival of anyone fromarth Their lands are stolen their mystic beliefs ridiculed and their dignity denied Some are taken on as slavelike cheap labor in homes others to work deep underground in mines Enough to send a few shivers up an anthropologist s spine However the we read the we come to appreciate the power and special insights of these Bleakmen Manfred Steiner A ten year old autistic boy living at Camp Ben Gurion along with other anomalous children Manfred neither speaks nor interacts with others rather he lives in his own world of highly accelerated time which Supper Club enables him to see the future an ability that makes him a valuable commodity for annterprising land speculator like Arnie Kott But how to communicate with Manfred The central Manfred becomes to the story the the plot warps in dark Moanas New Friend (Disney Moana) eerie andven sinister ways Teaching Machines Kids are taught at public school not by real teachers but teaching machines lifelike copies mental capacity included of the likes of Aristotle Lincoln Edison and Twain There s Professional Capital even one of Kindly Dad Jack resents these machines forcing sheeplike conformity on the children and tells Kindly Dad as much One of the hilarious sections I reread several times Camp Ben Gurion A special school for anomalous children that is children judged to have physical or mental or antisocial defects All these defectives on Mars are a major drawback to marketingfforts to get people to move to the red planet One of the proposed solutions kill off the defectives Remind you of Nazi Germany It should Time Chamber A psychotherapist at Camp B G by the name of Dr Glaub Seven Dwarfs Find a House (Disney Classic) explains a new Swiss theory about autistic children like Manfred how such childrenxperience time speeded up and how a chamber is being constructed to slow sights and sounds down for them Remember this is science fiction and PKD sueezes the possibility of such a chamber for all its worth More Schizophrenic Visions Distortions twist space and time occasionally replaying time and we glimpse schizophrenia from the inside with terrifying images of things like huge meat ating birds in a decaying rotting death filled world Curiously such apparitions and phantasms touch on the mystic rituals of the Bleakmen
