I'm jumping in here, please don't misanthropically misappropriate misa me.

I think the OT correlation makes a point to question the causal direction b/t depression & intelligence, more pointed than obverse "ignorance is bliss".

Depression: 1st Order - causal inefficacy w.r.t. "locus of control" - general
                 2nd ||.    -            ||.         ||.       Depression itself - specific

As the disease turns against itself, it seems intelligence grows at the expense of praxis.  So for as smart as we get, it does not really end up doing anything, other than fortifying the illness.

At it's source, I think depression is actually caused by a tantalizing misconception of what it means to be having the human experience.  As long as we continue to force the idea that making a difference involves the causal efficacy to perform a specific task, we lose the deeper connection to the involvement in experience that occurs before any specific intention is even determinately known, let alone completed.

Our experience of freedom has been masked and concealed to only reveal what our "masters" allow us to consider.  Then we take it personally when we do not perform according to our now internalized limitations.   Has me banging my head against the wall sometimes.  It's like a paradox in which I resign myself to getting out of my own way in order to actually approach myself.


From what I've seen, voices depend upon biographical experience. But what is biographical experience after all? Family interactions, the oh-so-broad term "experiences", and yes, of course, local culture.

So, i dont know, its nice validation that the schizophrenic experience is something more than "bad biological/physiological functioning" dictating everything, other than that i dont see the value or use of this finding.

It's not exactly news, but it is confirmation that cultural attitudes shape the experience of the mentally ill, and that in the US we have a particularly harsh/negative (I might even say punitive) attitude toward mental illness. We are, after all, only about a generation away from an era when we simply locked them up in warehouse-like sanitariums where they were drugged, experimented on, and if difficult to control, chained to the wall and hosed down.

In this case, who knows, anthropological confirmation of what psychologists already know may help build that body of knowledge up to the point where it has enough weight to effect a cultural shift in how we perceive mental illness.

Ok, maybe I'm too much of a negative Sally and it is important in a "popular science" manner; after all, we have a bunch of people still thinking its demonic possession or divine punishment, et al.
Perhaps those not "confessing" the negative voices are afraid that otherwise they might be treated as possessed, instead of simply ill.  The culture might dictate self-censorship on such matters because they have not yet been liberated by science, instead of contaminated.  Mainly,  It's difficult to tell how accurate our interpretations are when dealing with an illness that is so radically at odds with reality in the first place.  Given a patients inability to accurately monitor/interpret reality, I wonder also how much more they would be susceptible to suggestion, vs. control, w.r.t the nature of their condition during survey.  Total mindfuck.   :aaa:

My sister is cosplaying at Tampa Bay Comic Con next week. This makes me think about warning my parents to have bail money at the ready, because I pity any pervert that is going to attempt to bother her.

I like you, so the one thing that pisses me off is how bondsman gets to keep that.

I like the soft approach.  It's like the mythos of life being a simulation is built into the game.  Powerful stuff.

Awesome.  Found this to get the prop spinning:

And then the guard reference was from "The Trial".  Go figure, this fall guy is now going to a new screening of The Departed.   :lulz:

The shit I miss when I actually put in a full day's work. What the fuck crawled up LuciferX's ass to post such a thing?
It was from the Wikipedia racism page, discuss.

Eh.  Why would I go there?

Twid, you see, is the jealous kind of misanthrope.  He delights on the sentiment you so seem to lack for his appreciation.  He will riddle any semblance of what you consider intimacy with the humuncular image of his gonads rattling in you brain.  This is considered the most indulgent response to your suplications for mercy.

Wait, I meant to say:


Could you ever see yourself as a transsexual tyrannosaurus?
I don't know if you write, and I don't care, that there is legitimate  :lulz:

Legitimate what?
:lulz: = lulz = haha
