the title refers to a line from the book VALIS, in which pkd hypothesized that history had been stopped in the 1st century A.D., and that “the Empire never ended” (referring to the Roman Empire). He saw Rome as the pinnacle of materialism and despotism, which, after forcing the Gnostics underground, had kept the population of Earth enslaved to worldly possessions.* [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_K._Dick from Wikipedia]

i am currently mixing and recording overdubs for the rest of the songs.
