many elements of paranoia, psychosis, schizophrenia,

a journey through many human emotions."
Schizophrenia & the Book of Changes: an essay by
Philip K. Dick, 1965
"Schizophrenia is an
illness, not a person.
No matter what illness we may encounter in life,
we are not that.
What we are is That which is the same in all of us.
We are all the same in essence...
We are all Human Beings."
This is the maxim viewpoint of recovered schizophrenia
sufferer, Spencer Perdriau. Since returning to normal
regular health, he offers his own personal advice and
suggestions on how to make a recovery from schizophrenia
for those who are still caught in the tragedy of the
illness. Spencer also shares with us a transpersonal
psychological perspective on the illness and takes great
care to explain that regardless of any illness we
encounter, physical or mental, it can in no way corrupt
or damage our deeper subjective self, and that of us is
equally the same in all. This book is a must read for
those individuals and families looking for hope and
survival from this traumatic encounter in the mind.
