only thing I wonder about is this: to me the general definition of schizophrenia seems meaningless aside from the one sentence u read in freud/some in deleuze. to me its a problem of civilization with very real consequences. a private individual simply isnt allowed to create his own identity. only ppl w identity seem to be criminals/famous ppl/ and ironically drug addicts (only ppl w less identity than them has to be 'ordinary' ppl). ordinary meaning not the same as normal.
maybe its a problem of urbanization/being constantly and involuntary attached to the flock.
ideal thing wd maybe be living in a country-side w a small circle and have internet for outside information.
to me new york is the ultimate nightmare
of generalization/homogenization. smaller cities too share this everyone-alikeness.
if ur not on facebook, the ultimate tool of gestapo, and get the general approval that 'yes, ur life is meaningless like all of ours, accept it' ur looked at as a weirdo/outside of how things work, even though no authorities have complaints against u, ordinary ppl do the questionnaire just as well. ppl dont even try to make a life for themselves, its kinda like a death camp-mentality.
maybe I'm spoiled! but when ordinary ppl play the interrogator against u just bc u dont wanna have them in ur life as if theres something wrong w u bc of that (not narcissistic of them at all...), the boundaries of civilization has been crossed out and entered the jungle/hegelian 'intersubjective' recognition has run amok & become completely misunderstood/flipsided. ppl just want attention to play the kafka/borderline/teenage-game. attention to dismiss ur worth and feel better about themselves, like the 'beautiful soul'. psychologically its inhumane and sickening. example: when famous ppl break up its a general tragedy. when ordinary ppl do, they act like they dont care. this indifference has become a matter of course. maybe its cuz freud/lacan are dismissed today and schizophrenia (not in the clinical but theoretical sense) is the cool thing. schizophrenia to me simply is the world/the 'real' in the traumatic sense, caving in on u & stealing ur identity. u dont have normal fantasy to separate urself in a practical manner from the world so maybe fantasy enters that world in an unhealthy, bodily kind of way, lets say. I dont find sub-categorial clinical diseases ending w '-disorder' very helpful. schizophrenia (not in the 'dumb' sense) to me is the only real mental disease of a healthy brain, psychosis
just general madness, and the others various brain insufficiencies.
