Speechless, almost. I felt like I read a crazy, mentally unstable encyclopedia spanning from Genesis to the present in under 5 minutes.
.
How is it possible that mental normalcy is still perceived as being free from mental abnormalcy in Occidental history? How have they co-opted Science, instead of Religion, to treat the nouveau lunatics now? Is it any better than believing in divine punishment in non-European history to blame the neuron instead of God? To me, it’s worse; it’s the Devil within without the exorcism. It’s called objectification.
.
These crazy neurons seek redemption locked in Lucifer’s cell & won’t quit taunting the body until the body’s republic rests in peace or pieces. The Egyptian father’s prayer was haunting bc when I lose my marbles, I respond exactly like that parent from thousands of years ago fighting demonic voices. Crazy's architecture is in both sane & insane's neurons in every homo sapien regardless. Even in the pit of our collective stomach, which is considered the 2nd brain because of the congregation of 5HT receptors & neurons worshipping the Maker, makes butterflies dance b4 the Maker.
.
Imho, mental illnesses are like CoViD-19. Let’s call it Crazy Neural Architecture (CNA), i.t. seeks 2 find suitable hosts 2infect the Devil’s gene or mad voices in2 our collective Mindnome (like genome, but bigger). Sum will say I am not crazy, but alcoholics know d’Nile very well. We are born crazy, all of U.S.. Some will say we R knot insane, but insanity cannot be objectified bc it is an I Thou relationship with our own personal madness.
.
History is full of them, parody intended; there is Plato, Buddha, Christ, MLK. All of these counter-normal people left their indelible neural edifice on our collective normalcy. The best crazies are suicidal without mowing down children in a field of columbines. Buddha was a compassionate coward & passed up the chance to be a martyr on the cross; he divorced his wife, left his kids, and despised strumpets more than bhikkhuni swans. We’re missing mad women martyrs bc we live in History not HERstory 4those who think I’m a stoned misogynist.
.
I think Science is worse than Religion 2soothe the insane excluding the all of U, the Mob. As u observed fr A’s piece, i.t. is the European Culture that is the least inclusive of crazy people. Native people find divine reasons 4the most absurd colonized people, even the colored normal people whom the Chesire Cat might see as a collection of noggins with loose marbles & bats in their belfry long to be up above with the crazies, and down below with the kewl sinister cats & innocent Alice afraid of the new normal.
.
Native cultures find symbols & rituals 2contain crazy people, gay people, the transgendered, evil people, good people, the odd yin peeps, the yang girlz, &even the boring normal people running with needles & drugs w/o a clue to their madness unexplored. These cultures possess the most democratic minds while Europeans & especially Americans are the most autocratic ready with their straight jackets & Haldol 2exorcise your voices. ECT if you don’t behave or scream. Ironic when their motto is, “Find thine inner voice(s).”
.
Yes, madness is no laughing matter; yo, ur head might come off &you might b glad 4that hole floating above your neck. Bring back psilocybin & LSD in2 psychotherapy &you might have a real psycho revolution that will end Global Warming & Racism 4good, 4the insane, 4 the Thou & for me. No 1 is righteous & sane while high on a crazy trip, even the I-Thou relationship is torn 2shreds. There can be no objectification in holy communion.
.
How can crazy be cured with Science, if the Inquisitors are controlling the Vatican of Reason without examining the Madness Within the human genome? Should we use CRISPRy Tech to expunge insanity like we will do with Sickle Cell Anemia? Take the Scythe away from Death & Demons in both our collective Brain, Tummy & the UnDemocratic Republic of Hell?
