Yeah, he uses it throughout VALIS and his 2000+ page Exegesis.  It's where the phrase originated.

Phil thought a Russian satellite, when it was actually beamed at him from an extragalactic source.  Raylene and the gang tried to convince him it was just a bunch of kids messing around with a Radio Shack kit.

Check this out for a quick version of the story:

The VALIS device is capable of generating any type of particle (photons, neutrinos, tachyons, etc.).

We are all living in Phil's world now.

I thought that is where the name "Black Iron Prison" came from.  I guess that was my not-so-inner sci-fi geek telling me that.

I'd like to go on the record that I have admitted ripping off PKD's phrase almost since the beginning.


Also, the PKD BIP is a bit different than our BIP.  But that's party because Dick was really into the death of Christ and the persecution of the Romans.

But the plasmate (Seed, as I call it) is really the best way to melt the bars.  It will kill a being for 3 minutes (no heartbeat, brain activity, lung activity) during which their spirit/soul will travel to the extradimensional realm (heaven/nirvana/eden/oversoul) and exist with all of those whose names are written in the Book of Life (vast majority of humanity, as well as non-humanity).

After Christ's followers (and the Roman soldiers who converted) took his body into the desert and set him down into the cave, the original Christians ate a small piece of his dried blood and flesh.  They also played games, smoked herb (as the Coptic Christians still do).  These joints were stored in a pack of Pall Mall cigarettes, which is why Phil had visions when he saw a pack of "In Hoc Signo Vinces" during one of his stays in a psychological dungeon.

The smoke pouring out of Jesus' tomb was the smoke from burned breastplates, Down comforters, Dominoes pizza boxes,  plastic water bottles, polyhedral dice, etc.
