I am bipolar but have many scizophrenic friends . It is not outside the realms of possibility that ANYONE who hears voices COULD be hearing or
interpreting into words energies from outside their own existence .
I have heard voices in my manic stages and though i don't hear voices very often these days I still cannot claim for sure whether they were created
out of my own imagination or were some sort of ethereal parasite that lives off fear .
Dion Fortune wrote about there being elementals that hang around us feeding off our energy so maybe the voice hearers , including some schizophrenics
CAN hear them .
In a survey in Norway they found that 17% of Norwegians hear voices .
In Western society the "experts" like to diagnose everyone so they can put labels on them and stick them in groups so they can CONTROL them . People
who have aternative viewpoints are deemed "psychotic" if they are too different from society's general codes of conduct . If a man on the street
takes all of his clothes off he is diagnosed "disinhibited" and is arrested , but do it at Woodstock and others will join you in your nakedness .
Back to schizophrenia ... there are maybe 10 different "symptoms" which , when SOME of them are present in a patient's condition , are diagnosed as
"Schizophrenia is characterized by profound disruption in cognition and emotion, affecting the most fundamental human attributes: language, thought,
perception, affect, and sense of self. The array of symptoms, while wide ranging, frequently includes psychotic manifestations, such as hearing
internal voices or experiencing other sensations not connected to an obvious source (hallucinations) and assigning unusual significance or meaning to
normal events or holding fixed false personal beliefs (delusions). No single symptom is definitive for diagnosis; rather, the diagnosis encompasses a
pattern of signs and symptoms, in conjunction with impaired occupational or social functioning "
Sense of Self : the goal of many Buddhists and other spiritual practitioners is to LOSE the sense of self - in this case denial of the ego would be
one tick on the list of symptoms needed for diagnosis .
"FALSE" personal beliefs !!! Who has the authority to tell us what beliefs are false ???
I'll tell you what is false - THE SYSTEM is false , and Psychiatrists are one hell of an effective way of controlling those who are different . The
term SCHIZOPHRENIA is just a catch-all for a variety of symptoms that many of us have because THEY want us all LABELLED .
But I don't think it's telepathy .
