Haha I was psych minor and did my term paper for my abnormal psych class on schizotypal P.D. There are likely people here that suffer from this and other disorders but generally it will be someone who thinks the surveillance and theories are directly aimed at them. Being paranoid or beleiving in alternative reality theories are not indicative of mental illness.
Don't worry guys, you aren't all crazy.

Ready? Here goes...
People with schizotypal personality disorder may be severely disturbed. Their odd behavior may resemble that of people with schizophrenia. For example, they may also have unusual preoccupations and fears, such as fears of being monitored by government agencies.
More commonly, however, people with schizotypal personality disorder behave oddly and have unusual beliefs (aliens, witchcraft, etc.). They cling to these beliefs so strongly that it isolates them from normal relationships.
BY THE WAY, I'm not trying to insult anyone so please don't get on my back for making a joke...
