I have always held a high regard for psychology. While it is considered a soft science I often find that the facts presented within the subject to be absolute or at least somewhere near it.
I have been told that creative minds are statistically more likely to develop schizophrenia, sometimes I feel like I'm halfway there.
My interest has always been on the psychosis side of psychology. It is nothing new to me to be attracted to the darker side of things...
Introduction to Psychosis
Psychosis is chaotic thinking that is the result of a severely impaired reality test ( the patient cannot tell inner fantasy from outside reality). Some psychotic states are short-lived and transient (microepisodes). These last from a few hours to a few days and are sometimes reactions to stress. Psychotic microepisodes are common in certain personality disorders, most notably the Borderline and Schizotypal. Persistent psychoses are a fixture of the patient's mental life and manifest for months or years.
Psychotics are fully aware of events and people "out there". They cannot, however separate data and experiences originating in the outside world from information generated by internal mental processes. They confuse the external universe with their inner emotions, cognitions, preconceptions, fears, expectations, and representations.
Frankly Ive learned how to ignore it anymore it is just a nuisance or a pitiful form of entertainment.
A delusion is "a false belief based on incorrect inference about external reality that is firmly sustained despite what almost everyone else believes and despite what constitutes incontrovertible and obvious proof or evidence to the contrary".
