Currently re-reading Neuropath ... Came across this gem:

The ancient Greek roots of "psychology" are psuke and logos, literally "the discourse of the soul".


So many Easter eggs in this book for his TSA readers :)

His books all float around the same concepts, which I imagine are his non-fiction writings (though I find them completely impenetrable). I think both Neuropath and Disciple of the Dog could be used partially as a cipher for somethings in TSA, and they certainly have easter eggs hidden throughout :).
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Definitely. I actually just reread Neuropath in the latter half of last week too, Yellow.

Likewise, on a similar note, I feel like Disciple is an allegory of the Nonmen.

Hmm ... don't follow ... the "Frame" freaks are non-men?

Disciple himself, Tao.

On your spoiler, whether it was conscious on his part or not, Disciple of the Dog is a quality Bakker response to the history of detective novels:
