Copycat Precious Artifact which was first published in Galaxy in autumn 1964 is one of those stories showing PKD s ability to combine fascinating world building with a haunting insight into human natureThe story centres on Milt Biskle a so called reconstruct engineer who is responsible for making Mars habitable so that Terran settlers can come and take its stretches of land in possession thus relieving Terra from its growing over population Biskle is the best men among the forty odd engineers that are turning Mars into a settlers paradise but he is haunted by a nagging suspicion Taking possession of Mars was not a peaceful operation at all for the planet was contended for by both Terrans and the inhabitants of Proxima the so called Proxmen and this conflict led to war Officially it was Terra who vanuished the Proxpeople but as to this Milt Biskle has persistent misgivings so much so that instead of welcoming his own family wife and two daughters who come to Mars to start a new life there he begs for a leave of absence and the opportunity to visit Terra in order to see for himself that his old home planet is not dominated by the Prox He is granted his wish and when he goes back to Terra at first sight his ualms seem unfounded but there are certain details that finally make him realize that it is as he suspected Earth is totally destroyed and under the control of the Proxmen who have replaced Terrans as the dominant civilization They only need people like him to make Mars and Terra habitable again Precious Artifact like so many of Dick s later stories is steeped in the paranoia motif with its protagonist constantly asking himself if the world he walks through is really as he sees it or if it is not just an illusion maintained by people who wish to control and to exploit him In order to find this out Biskle pays attention to detail and uses logical thinking on the basis of his observations and he even tries to trap Mary Ableseth an interestingly telling name by the way the woman who is to accompany him during his stay on Terra into giving herself away which she eventually does Nevertheless Dick having explored this topic so often Precious Artifact would not be so fascinating merely on this account were it not for the twist in the tale s tail First of all the Proxmen anticipated that they would not be able to conceal the truth from a perceptive man like Biskle entirely and that s why they planned some predetermined breaking points in the illusion of reality they provided for him so that in the end Biskle thinks he has groped his way to the whole truth when in fact he still hasn t the real truth being even worse than he makes it out to be This way Dick takes us on an enticing round of hide and seekSecondly the Proxmen know how they can make the remaining Terrans function in a way they want them to function Humans entertain hopes and by offering them some morsel of what makes life worth living to them the Proxpeople can make their victims comply even in the face of utter despair With Biskle it is the offer of a little kitten in fact a mere robot but Biskle does not know that because the kitten reminds him of a pet he had as a child when pets were still legal On the assumption that at least this little kitten is left of the world as he knew it Biskle goes on doing the work that is needed for the Proxmen to survive and it is this pet that makes Biskle think better when he is on the point of committing suicide He even snarls at the Prox stewardess that it was not her that made him abort his suicide plans and he may think himself a winner in this situation but it is in fact the Proxpeople who have successfully manipulated him It s typical of the Terran mind to fasten onto phantoms That might help explain their defeat in the conflict they were simply not realists Now you may argue whether humans tendency to cling to hopes and to little things that make life bearable for them is an asset or a drawback It may make it difficult for them to see a situation the way it actually is it may induce them to accept a foul compromise to put up with things they could change if they were willing to make a sacrifice and a painful effort but it might also be one of the valuable traits that distinguishes them from cold calculating heartless psychopaths I myself have no idea what my final word on this matter should beThere is another interesting detail that makes this story stand out for me On reflecting the conflict between Terra and Proxima Biskle realizes that he had felt guilty ever since the defeat of the Proxmen The war had embittered him it didn t seem fair that one of the two competing cultures would have to suffer since the needs of both were legitimate Similarly Mary Ableseth repeatedly shows genuine compassion for Biskle and his growing awareness of the utter defeat and disappearance of his own civilization I think that there is a tough and disillusioning lesson to be learnt from this namely that conflicts between two groups of people can seldom be seen in terms of good versus evil and yet there is probably not always a compromise to be obtained And so while conflict is sometimes unavoidable the fruit of Victory may taste as those Milton allots to Lucifer and his followers like ashes to the thinking man
