Having read that apparently an interesting radio signal was discovered coming from an 'earth-like' planet in the constellation Lyra, I was reminded of the fact that the planet K-PAX in the fictional book series (also movie made of the first book) which was described as orbeting a star in the Lyra constellation. Was this planet known about before 1995 when the first book was published? I'm too lazy to research that. Was the fictional book really the non-fiction story of a real patient in a mental hospital who genuinelly WAS an alien from the Lyra constellation? Probably not, but it's in interesting coincidence.

One of my hallucinations in hospital was that the whole ward had been turned into an Indian market town, and all the beds had been turned into little market stalls.

How do you know you are not still hallucinating now, that you make games every day and we're just characters in your story? Notice that there are a lot of monsters roaming around recently! Careful not to wake the windfish!

I was alright after a couple of days. They kept a good eye one me.
Once the ward's walls had stopped moving around, I knew I'd be ok.

(Though.. I'm still not sure if that was a music-teaching-room on the corridor that the ward was on. I'm pretty sure that shouldn't have been a music room.. so, I'm calling that a definite hallucination, but.. .. was it? It's a freakin' bizarre hallucination if it was one!)

That is to say, weird shit can happen in your mind, when you're stuck on a hospital ward, especially if you're in there due to head trauma. I can totally understand where the conspiracy side of this came from. But I also know that nothing I saw was real.
I definitely know that the little 3D holographic Platdude that was on my hand wasn't real, though I did put him gently down on the table, so as not to hurt him.
Hospitals do crazy shit to your head.
Nothings real, no matter how realistic it might appear to be.

It's also a nightmare if you need to spoff one off after a while in there. I mean, that's when I knew I was starting to feel better after my short 3 weeks in hospital back in 2011. That and performing the most grandiose poop I've ever and likely ever will perform in all my days, I swear that thing could breathe.

I liked the film KPAX, but its an awkward watch now that we know Kevin Spacey is allegedly a monster!

The book was far better, the film left out an important character from the later books. From book 1 being good, later books getting a bit less good with each one, but then the end of book 5 blew my mind and was probably the only way to finish the series but I did not see it coming.

I didnt actually know before it was a novel / series of novels! I think I'll pick those up -- especially on your recommendation that they're good -- thank you!!

I will repeat, they get progressivly less good with each book, it sounds weird to say they get a little far-fetched because they are scifi books, however if you like the movie, then you will like the first book at least.
