Some Articles about „psychosis“ and „schizophrenia“ by Experts!

Important neuroscience article:

Yale neuroscientists debunk the myth of normalcy in life and psychiatry

(Abstract:
Classic psychiatry categorizes people in limiting, linear ways, while the world is inherently wide-ranging. The article proposes instead that each individual  be assessed and understood singularly” from a psychiatric perspective, but according to a wide range of fluctuating behaviors  and tendencies. This is a quantum approach to psychiatry, rather than the classic binary approach that offers only two options, ones and zeros. This means that any one behavior or condition may seem good or bad, appropriate or inappropriate, depending on the context.)

An alternative article about “schizophrenia”:

“Schizophrenia”, “psychosis” or something more profound

(Abstract:
A “psycho” is someone who is experiencing a disconnection from everyday reality!  “Psychosis” could be more something like an enlightenment situation! You can learn very much from a person in a “psychotic” state of mind!)

What do all these things have in common? They represent various styles of rejection of linear values. The society is trying to cure itself by an archaic revival, by a reversion to archaic values.)

How non-industrial cultures view “mental illness”:

“Mental illness”; Alan Watts; Terrence Mckenna

(Abstract:
Behaviors considered “mental illnesses” by western psychology are seen differently — even positively — in so-called “primitive” societies. Hearing voices and hallucinating, for example, can be the start of a spiritual awakening.)

An article about how shamans perceive “mental illness”:

What a shaman sees in a “mental” hospital

(Abstract:
