SYMMETRIC BEING: Abnormal Psychology

Brain functioning results from the same computer--of nothingness breaking apart--that generates everything else.
The brain is a specific concept or system that we associate with
human consciousness, although our theory claims that consciousness more
directly results from the computer of nothingness--"zero"--tearing
apart. We could actually
view the humain brain as a map of all the places our consciouness
can travel, all the possibilities generated by zero. This is not
just a map of human consciousness (because one can have a dream one is
a dolphin, and so on), but a map of all possible feelings and
experiences. Here I examine a few specifics of this system.
I believe attention deficit disorder to be a result of the chaos of
things wandering around by the perfectly ordered and yet totally
chaotic system or fractal of "zero." When nothingness breaks
apart into infinite fractal life, in some ways this is a perfect
running computer program, and in some ways, totally chaotic. The
ADD mind wanders this chaotic realm of stuff more chaotically than the
standard brain; circles and lines vs a bee flying around.
The black-and-white of bipolar -- the sine wave of highs vs lows -- is
just simply the joy and pain that results from Being breaking apart --
highs tearing and raping lows (someone else that is low while you're
happy or manic, a perfect inverse consciousness) , and vice versa.
The specific types of mania are clearly just the complexities of
those colorful emotions.
Schizophrenia is the human mind's ability to wander more than usual to
other perfectly valid points of view on our standard view of reality,
such as examining a similar fractal image to the one we all accept as
standard. To lock into one exact image and stick to it no matter
what, and call any deviation--any wandering around to some other
place--a sickness, in my view, is the psychotic thing to do. For
instance, if our standard worldview was the 2% that psychotics now
occupy, then that 2% would be abnormal. So how on Earth can we
prize one view over the other, since we obviously have our current view
by chance, among the sea of all possibility.
Medication quite simply takes these brain functionings and brings to
the norm, whether or not you consider that a good or bad thing.
Stimulants make the ADD mind more ordered rather than
chaotic/creative, mood stabalizers lower the high and low extremes of
bipolar, and antipsychotics lock the schizophrenic into our standard
reality. Personally, I think there's a balance of bringing these
unique brain functionings in control to the point where they're not
dangerous or unlivable, but not beating every drop of creativity and
talent, etc, out of someone.
I personally argue that one has the legal right to demand this.
The law says that medication must be forced if one is a danger to
himself or others, but there is nothing as far as I'm concerned that
says every bit of the talent, creativity, uniqueness, etc, that
result from these different brain functionings, must be beaten out of
you. One has the right to be functionally manic, functionally
ADD, and functionally schizophrenic, which is exactly where I am.
My ADD grants me creativity, yet little enough to still focus
that creativity into solid works; my mild mania allows me creativity
and energy without killing too many people per year, and my
schizophrenia allows me odd interpretations of reality and occasionally
a conversation with some guy in my head, without anyone telling me to
off my pet poodle.
A psychiatrist is simply one who has studied much of the details of the
brain functioning in the biological system we relate to, and can
manipulate it via oral medication. The DSM-IV is an
excellet categorization of different functions of the brain,
except for taking the narrow view that any deviation from the norm is
diseased. To me a doctor is someone to work with to bring the
strange functioning of these non-normal brain functions
into functional levels, if only because one will get thrown in a
sanitarium if one deviates too much from society's rigid standards.
Of course all this can be applied to all psychology. These are just specifics I specialize in in being utterly nuts.
