Adequately sums up my mood for the majority of the time.

I've put up a few posts without properly introducing myself, mainly out of my social aversion generally. I am schizophrenic, but I don't hear the voices. Yet I feel more sensitive and sometimes out of touch with my true feelings.
I've never felt man is a social creature - part of the writing mass. Alone he can develop consciousness, conscience, intelligence, imagination, his relation to the great whole.
Don't get me wrong, I have a great love for humanity and would like to see improvements that would bring us closer together.
You see? My thinking is paradoxical.

But I am intrigued to see like-minded people who have had experiences that have so completely blown them away that they could not possibly integrate them sooner before the circuitry blew a fuse somewhere. And a lot attempts at communicating them to people verbally have led to puzzled looks and silence, but sometimes a delighted response.

Anyway, I've learned some stuff along the way that has helped me and I'd hopefully like to learn off others here who are further along the path as well as helping those who are stumbling.

It also would be interesting to read the views of schizophrenia itself as an 'organic' or genetic disease and the controversy surrounding it and the many attempts to quantify and locate it, from the people who have actually lived with it.

If you understood any of that, I welcome your friendship. :p

It really is too massive to comprehend, yet at the same time too delicate to put into words that would not betray any of its essential qualities... But there's times you come into perfect understanding. That's what art is for.
Are most schizophrenics fascinated by philosophy and spirituality, etc?
I've heard of psychosis described as the death of the ego.

Yep, it's monumental
Over the years, i've got an angle on it.
I think the further you get away from it, the less terrifying it becomes
But it took many years to get my head around it

It's not terrifying all the time, as I say it's a delicate balance between opposites. It is the proof of God, of someone out there teaching us and at the same time learning from us...
