This rationalization and attempt at validating voices as coming from an outside source is simply a self defense mechanism in attempting to cope with
the illness of schizophrenia, or the 'lesser' presentation of schizotypy.
Brain chips? Go get an MRI and PET scan.
It's a magical thinking delusion.
Resistance to seeking any real confirmation of reality and/or confirmation of delusion through clinical assistance only compounds the issue.
Go for a clinical diagnostic interview. Be entirely forthcoming and completely honest in your beliefs in holding nothing back. Request a dual MRI
and PET scan at the same time for best resolution and you'll have clear unambiguous fidelity on any brain chips you might think you have, or the
conspicuous absence of any such anomalous intrusions.
In finding no brain chips, it would be well within your interest to continue with your physician's recommendations as to how you should proceed.
If, however, you find brain chips, then, you've got validation, and you can post your scans up here on ATS where I'll then break my keyboard into tiny
little bits, crush the little bits, put it in a blender, bake it into a pie and eat it.
Resisting clinical investigation, if anything only contributes to confirmation of delusional paranoia supported by overly active rationalized defense
mechanisms in protecting the illness as you may actually prefer to hear voices giving you a sense of community over the lonely silence of self
marginalized exclusion from healthy social interactions with real people you can't control.
