“The universe exists because Yah remembers it,” Elias said.


Both Herb Asher and Rybys stared at him.


“If Yah forgets, the universe ceases,” Elias said.


“Can he forget?” Rybys said.


“He has yet to forget,” Elias said elliptically.


“Meaning he could forget,” Rybys said. “Then that’s what this is about. You just spelled it out. I see. Well -” She shrugged and then reflexively sipped at her cup of tea. “Then I wouldn’t exist in the first place except for Yah. Nothing would exist.”


Elias said, “His name means ‘He Brings into Existence Whatever Exists.”


– Philip K Dick (1981) The Divine Invasion.
