This is an immeasurably superior version of a work self-published as an e-book in 2012 under a pseudonym. It is the story of how with the help of drugs one young man underwent the transformation from university student to mental patient having always been a bit weird. After the most memorable and frightening moments of his breakdown a strange intelligence named Butterfly started communicating with him, which lead to him being diagnosed as schizophrenic. Many years later he feels his breakdown made him a better person, that the influence of Butterfly has made him more sane, not less, by guiding him away from the things that made him mad and into becoming a type of person he is more happy being despite having to live with being labelled by society as mentally ill.
