  1. First of all, Nietzsche and Schopenhauer. You can also read Albert Camus ' The Myth of Sisyphus and Miller's Tropic of Cancer.�

    Material from the Internet�

    Along with a two-volume Upanishad and another Nietzsche book, there are a lot of much more useful books on criminology on the shelves of Rust Cole's warehouse. Among them is the famous work of John Douglas, Robert Ressler and Ann Burgess Sexual Homicide: Patterns and Motives — the reference book of every FBI profiler, if not in fact, then in the movies for sure. You've probably heard of the TV series “Think like a Criminal”, where a team of FBI agents solve murders using psychological portraits of criminals. If not, you've probably at least seen the Hannibal Lecter movies. John Douglas and Robert Kesser were among the first FBI profilers to develop the so-called behavioral theory. Before writing their book, they spent years studying the behavioral patterns of famous serial killers from Ted Bundy to Charles Manson and advising the police on hundreds of similar cases. Another good book from the Rasta library is Dead Men Do Tell Tales, a textbook on forensic anthropology and partly the inspiration for another investigative film, Bones.

    As for the creators ' bookshelf, here are a few references that might end up being interesting:

    “The Dweller of Karkosa”

    A short story about life after death, written by the American writer Ambrose Bierce. According to the plot of the story, its hero, a native of the “ancient and great city of Carcosa”, wakes up in the desert, where he wanders until he stumbles upon his own tombstone and does not realize that it is already dead

    “The King in Yellow”

    Published in 1895, a collection of short stories by Robert Chambers, the mysterious mythology of “True Detective” is built around its elements. Macarabian stories, preceded by an epigraph from the play The King in Yellow, which takes place in the city of Carcosa, under two suns, under a sky “full of black stars”. Chambers ' characters, once they read this book, become permanently obsessed with it and go crazy. The text of the book itself, of course, is not given anywhere, just as there are no stories of events taking place directly in Karkos itself. In the series ' universe, it appears that this particular book exists as the secret manifesto of Louisiana's pervert killers.

    Friedrich Nietzsche and the Existentialists

    The whole nihilistic attitude of Rust Cole is not only the result of a long and difficult life at the crazy bottom of American society, working undercover in the drug business and being treated for a mental disorder, but also a serious consequence of reading smart books. He probably started expressing himself like a drunken Sartre or Nietzsche after reading their works.

  2. There is a small fragment where Rast talks about M-theory on the example of an aluminum beer can. The material is not very simple, for those who are not professionally engaged in physics.�
    But there is still one popular book on this topic.
    Brian Green ” Elegant Universe. Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Search for the Ultimate Theory”

  3. Nick Pizzolato was blunt about where Rust Cole's philosophy came from. First, these are the works of Emil Cioran, perhaps the most pessimistic thinker of the 20th century. Secondly, it is the work of Thomas Ligotti – a modern master of dark prose.
