Hi Lorelei.., as you would know Carlos Castaneda died from liver cancer- most likely triggered by the heavy doses of psychotropic plants given to him by Don Juan early in their association.
Most trauma of the liver leads to a condition commonly known as "[Moderator Edit] on the liver'- a malady that often provokes irrational maliciousness in the sufferer. His last book' the active side of infinity' is completely contrary to the earlier books- full of malice and misogyny; as is also recounted in Amy Wallaces' biography "Sorcerer's Apprentice".

It is impossible to invent characters like Dons Juan and Genaro.., they are the most vividly real personagges I have encountered in any literature.., and Don Juan's 'cachet of knowledge' is to my mind the most inmportant contribution made to our understanding in the twentieth century.
[ the concept of the 'Assemblage point' explains amongst many other things much of the mental states you mention in another post here ].

best..,
