What does a scanner see? I mean, really see? Into the head? Down into the heart? Does a passive infrared scanner … see into me — into us — clearly or darkly? (Bob Arctor, A Scanner Darkly)
Great dystopian novel and fantastic movie adoption. Be sure to read and watch this semi-autobiographical story P. K. Dick wrote in 1977 about some people who were punished entirely too much for what they did as he later puts it and make up your own mind.
For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. (1 Corinthians 13, Verses 9-12, King James Version)
