    Why are people with bipolar treated like children?

    Because they accept thats the way it is. Everything is bipolar just as all roads leads to Rome, apart from the M25 that just goes round in circles. This is getting too deep Sorry to have wasted your valuable time.

    Jiddu Krishnamurti on the Roots of Psychological Disorder

    I thought this was interesting because it speaks to the boundary between psychological dysfunction and spirituality from the perspective of a possibly enlightened being. It is actually a round table, also involving a few other notable scientists of the time, including Rupert Sheldrake.
