Philip K. Dick lived in an apartment at 3028 Quartz Lane in Fullerton, California with his fifth wife Tessa from 1972 to 1976. Here, he drew from his time living at the "hermit house" to write A Scanner Darkly.

It was also here that he had the event that he would later refer to as 2-3-74 (for February-March 1974). While on sodium pentothal after having a wisdom tooth extracted, he had a bizarre religious experience triggered by the Jesus fish necklace worn by the girl delivering more pain medication. Later he claims he was told about his baby son's undiagnosed hernia (which it turned out he did have) while listening to "Strawberry Fields Forever" by the Beatles. He wrote about it endlessly in the eight million page Exegious and semi-fictionalized what he went through in his later books V.A.L.I.S. and Radio Free Albemuth.
