A sad implication of this mindset is the misconception that truly creative works demand the use of mind-altering drugs -- which, if you are a creator who wasn't taking drugs but gets this accusation leveled at your work, can be something of an insult depending on your opinion of them. And in real life, composing any work of art (or doing anything more complex than opening a door, for that matter) is borderline impossible when tripping on hallucinogens like DMT or mescaline. Most admitted users of psychedelics tend to do their work between trips, not during (whether or not said work is inspired by the trips.) Stuff like cocaine doesn't actually make you hallucinate or think trippy things, though it does make doing ''more'' cocaine sound like a fantastic idea.

idea, and heroic single doses or a long history of heavy cocaine use has been documented to cause psychotic breaks of one kind or another.

* ''Series/Nanalan'' fits quite well. It's about a pre-school child named Mona visiting her nan and having fun in either her house or her garden. Sounds simple and harmless enough, but since Mona is too young to properly speak and the episodes were originally only 3-4 minutes long, some very obscure scenes came out. The most famous scenes are probably the very weird "Peepo" moment about naming vegetables or the almost sexually obscene "Lollipop" episode.

*** Also worth mentioning is the attempts to interrelate Revelation with other bits and pieces of Biblical prophecy, and in particular the Old Testament Book of Daniel. Many Christians, particularly Protestants, see Revelation as being a sort of key that unlocks the mysteries of the rest of Biblical prophecy. This business only really began in the 19th century (although Christians have been finding interesting patterns and suchlike more or less since the canon of the Christian Bible was defined), and eventually led to things like ''LeftBehind'', so...use your judgement. (No pun intended).

* "The Story Of Chinese Gods (1976)" is a Hong Kong animated film with very surreal visuals, most audiences would be completely lost if they're not familiar with any of the Chinese stories associated with the film.

* It's probably better to say that TimeCube exists ''because'' no drugs were involved.

Creators with BipolarDisorder are prone to this, as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mania manic]] phases create symptoms that are similar to drug intoxication. As mania can loosely be considered the real-life equivalent of TheMadnessPlace, it's unsurprising that [[RealityIsUnrealistic quite a number of magna opera are created under such circumstances]], but a manic phase can just as easily be the source of a 500-page AuthorTract on WordSaladPhilosophy that has even the author baffled when they stabilize.
