Selena Gomez' alleged stalker is clearly out of his mind ... telling TMZ, "I'm very anti-material ... I don't like even touching anything that isn't Selena Gomez."
Moments before Thomas Brodnicki was handcuffed in L.A. this AM, he was out for a stroll in his neighborhood -- telling us he NEVER had conversations with God about killing the actress -- but he does have plans to reunite with her in 2016 ... claiming, "Selena Gomez and I are the holy chosen ones of God."
Brodnicki explained, "I'm not overly concerned if I meet [Selena] in the flesh because it may be like scripture says ... 'No man has seen the face of God' ... Maybe us being together is too much like seeing the face of God."
As for the whole 2016 reunion -- Thomas tells us, "One of my favorite scenarios is [Selena] flies out here on March 23, 2016. We start seeing each other, and we don't even touch each other for a month."
Brodnicki says he won't try and see Gomez because there's a restraining order prohibiting it, and besides, he says, she's in Canada now.
Brodnicki is being evaluated right now by a shrink and LAPD detectives, who will probably end up putting him on a 5150 psychiatric hold.
