I loved reading, "Atlas Shrugged", by Ayn Rand, and had read everything she had written by the time I was 17.
I read Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea's, "Illuminati", when I was in my 20s, and loved it.
I read "Gulag Archipelago", by Solzhenitsyn, in my thirties and, found it was a huge mind blower.
But the biggest mind blower, the biggest game changer, the book that changed my world dramtically was the, "Catechism of the Catholic Church" NON-FICTION. With over 2000 years of history, I discovered the world I thought I was living in and knew, being a worldly, traveled, loving history and non-fiction, or fiction mixed with allot of facts kind of person. I thought I knew something about the world. What a wake up.
I only wish I had read this book before reading the others. I imagine I would have seen them completely different. I think you will find some answers to your quest there. Actually, I know you will.
