Considering schizophrenics themselves describe their hallucinations as grossly violent, unpleasant encouraging of self harm/harm to others, or
belittling to the sufferer I would say no.
This would fit into the OP's theory more and more. Because what if they are seeing different dimensions? Parallel universes? Spirits? Demons? etc
Because most of us believe our souls live on so suffice it to say, they must go somewhere!
The government is not lying.
Liars lie about lying but that's a different argument
I don't think this thread suggests they are lying rather than misdiagnosing and possibly misunderstanding this strange behavior.
It's interesting, many people with schizophrenia have extremely high IQs (genius level). Same with Autism and Aspergers! So something ain't making
sense because if you're that intelligent (according to our standards then) you should know better! You almost can't have it both ways.
Schizophrenia is no joke, it is currently one of the least understood psychological disorders.
No one is saying it is! The OP is suggesting alternative reasonings which STILL renders this: misunderstood.
Those with schizophrenia may suffer mild symptoms that appear much like depression, or social disorders where as others are in states so extreme they
are rigid, seemingly unresponsive trapped in a mental prison.
You're almost describing the average person who watches television!
Do some research about it yourself. I actually know a handful of people that suffer from this disease in my every day life, as well as many on this
site who have schizophrenia and they can tell you everything you would ever want to know. I assure you it is no lie.
Here's a good place for you to start.
All about schizophrenia and psychosis.
Again, most people know what science says......we're just leaving the lid off our boxes that's all.
Based on our limited recorded history, it's best we go through life a little more humbly because eventually.....we will all be wrong!
