Any Philip K Dick fans out there? He’s my favorite author. He was a science fiction writer who did a lot of drugs and in his later years had this profound spiritual awakening. He believed God was communicating to him. He eventually had a nervous breakdown and spent a lot of time in mental hospitals. Eventually he was diagnosed as schizophrenic.
I’m particular to Ubik, Valis, the Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch, and Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep.
