* ChemicalMessiah: The drug Mimezine(discovered by Harry's father, Dexter, by experimenting on ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fugu fugu]]'' toxin), which permitted one to hallucinate interactions with holograms, had religious overtones(overdoses resulted in "image sickness", beginning with hallucinations of churches, progressing into losing oneself in memories, and ultimately death), considering that the Scientology-like antagonist cult (Synthiotics/The New Realism) in the miniseries controlled the pharmaceutical labs where it was manufactured as well as the media outlets which benefited from its use by consumers. Senator Kreutzer, the Big Bad, certainly thought that opening the doors of perception using Mimezine was one of the first steps to enlightenment in the New Realist/Synthiotics paradigm.
