It was Geschwind Syndrome

Dostoevsky's religious awakening, deep insight, etc. are all attributable to his neurological condition. His much vaunted life experience and "Russian soul" had no impact.
>Temporal lobe epilepsy causes chronic, mild, interictal (i.e. between seizures) changes in personality, which slowly intensify over time. Geschwind syndrome includes five primary changes; hypergraphia, hyperreligiosity, atypical (usually reduced) sexuality, circumstantiality, and intensified mental life.

      What did the Holy Spirit have to gain by smiting his servant fyodor with the lifelong agony of epilepsy?

        the Holy Spirit already has everything it ever needs. It makes a world with suffering and you have to deal with it. It constructs life with the single goal of domination and so you are dominated by others. You start resenting your circumstances and cope by shitposting on LULZ, you read established authors who construct for you a belief system that effectively tells you who to kill with promises of "liberation", but you don't ever follow through with it because you know deep down that you are pathetic and would die without ever shooting your rifle.
        Anyway, did Dostoe's temporal lobe epilepsy directly cause him to write his magnificent stories?

          But why not give him divine inspiration without the pain and hardship?

            I'll quote Kierkegaard here
            >What is a poet? An unhappy man who hides deep anguish in his heart, but whose lips are so formed that when the sigh and cry pass through them, it sounds like lovely music.... And people flock around the poet and say: 'Sing again soon' - that is, 'May new sufferings torment your soul but your lips be fashioned as before, for the cry would only frighten us, but the music, that is blissful.

          You don't need to necessarily know the reason. The Spirit will throw anything at you and you can scream and rage... but rage at what? There are other things you can do, but when it comes to your outlook on the Spirit you can either thank it and therefore affirm your life or denounce it and therefore your life.

            Is this some strain of Christian thought? Because it sounds like you are talking about the demiurge.

              I'd say I'm not a christian. The Spirit just does not care all that much about you anymore than it cares about the smallest lifeform on some distant planet.

    >Guys stop religiosity is totally just a mental illness that can be explained by the science
    >Guys there's no possible way that Dostoevsky experienced an intuition of divine principles and oriented his life around the implications of his spiritual insights
    >Guys he was just crazy

        Unlike other senses our olfactory system is plugged directly into subconscious. Odor and fragrance are the primary gateways towards manipulating others into doing your bidding.
