In traditional societies individuals that have a profound epiphany or revelations have a breakdown and recover. During the change over they do
eccentric things, speak in metaphors and have trouble articulating the sudden insights they experience.
In our apparently rational world, those that fail to articulate and reason their sudden awareness are immediately labelled crazy. The breakdown I

reconstructing your world view.
Normally this kind of thing happens to people who suddenly 'find' God and transition through this metamorphosis by using readily established
