Philip K. Dick was comparatively sane

A man in Oxnard, CA has been arrested and faces felony charges of animal cruelty. He was found to have tortured and dissected his daughter’s pet guinea pig because he thought it was a robot with a hidden camera in the back of its head, and that had been placed in his home by government agents to spy on him.

This curious belief may be related to his being wigged out on methamphetamine at the time.
