Indeed, to the extent that Bergson’s philosophy repeatedly explores a conception of life in relation to the non-living, of the reduction of dynamic, living or creative processes to the status of the static and mechanistic, a concern with mechan ization, in a variety of terminologies, can be seen as implicit in most of his philosophical work. At the core of both Time and Free Will (1960 ) and Matter and Memory (1988 ), for example, is the critical exposition of Fabulation: Counteracting Reality 33 the ways in which duration, the enduring continuity forming the basis of our relation to time and memory, is reduced to the status of the mechanical and quantifiable.
While literary-critical scholars like Palmer and Vest (2009), or theorists like Baudrillard and Hayles, continue to find much socio-political significance in Dick’s fiction, their engagements tend to leave us with an idea of Dick as representing (albeit in both active and passive senses) rather than engaging in the transformation of an era: perhaps because of the originality and incisiveness of his insights and fictional creations, an image emerges of a writer with a great talent for depicting, reflecting, describing, exploring, elaborating a number of important cultural developments that were perhaps not yet widely apparent, but which have become increasingly visible since his death.
Furthermore, this example shows how, for Bergson, fabulation and the religious phenomena to which it gives rise are no more social than individual in essence. Any given instance of ‘salvation’ through fabulation may in itself seem to have little significance for society as a whole; yet aggregated, a number of such incidents, especially when we consider them in the context of the more widespread threats discussed above, such as interpersonal violence, defeatism, a fear of death, and so on, may make the difference between survival and extinction for a species or large group.
