This Theory has been around for a very long time. The standards for what is sane and what is not have evolved quite a bit but there will probably
never be a really solid way to make the determination.
Some people just get sick, sometimes it affects the body, sometimes the mind. I happen to think that all illness has a cause that is related to the
life of the person involved but that does not make the problem any less real.
Some people have been pronounced insane for the reasons you mentioned, Event Horizon, but I think they remain a small fraction of the total. As sad as
it is to say, sometimes people's minds just break down.
