"I am a professional student and will remain one; I will not change. My opportunity to change was offered to me and I turned it down; I am stuck, now, and, as I say, know but know not what." Philip K. Dick, The Transformation of Timothy Archer, reprinted in VALIS and Later Novels, edited by Jonathan Lethem (New York: Library of America, 2009) at 615, 786).
