Do you try not to find deeper meaning in things? Is it easier to just accept things or do you need to know the ins and outs of everything? Do you try to find meaning where there is no meaning?
'Madness is a mad thing, does that have a meaning?'
There are many people on the Earth who go mad. It is fact. Though, why do these people go mad? Some do because of their great amounts of academic intelligence, others because of severe chemical imbalances in the brain and others because they think too hard. There could be a link here. Massive amounts of academic intelligence leads to one thinking too hard and perhaps missing the simple steps but, also severe chemical imbalances in the brain could mean we are using some parts more dominantly than others, right? Therefore we are thinking harder again. And deep thinkers, well they just try to analyse everything where it doesn't always need analysis. The trend is therefore missing out the middle man and the first man - only looking towards the final stage...
Perhaps not all cases of neuropsychosis or madness are because of people thinking too hard but, I think they could be the case in many instances. I was talking to someone the other day who I'd met on the internet - the new craze for us youngsters! Though, it was quite a one way conversation. I was just typing away and he wasn't fully paying attention as he was on the phone. Though, through typing I was able to brainstorm an idea behind madness. The reason we'd gotten onto this topic in the first place was because I was giving very elaborate answers to very simple questions. Anyway, I will tell you all the idea I had.
People who are mad try to find meaning in everything. However, there is not always a meaning to be found. Though, how come some of them believe they have actually found meaning in what there is to be no meaning? Maybe, because there is actually no meaning in what they have found - yet they believe there is - when they try to communicate their ideas, we do not always understand them so discard them. We don't think they are thinking straight. This can frustrate the people and lead to symptoms of recorded neuropsychosis which then gives us an excuse - as a society - to offer them treatment/ exclude them.
Here is the bit which seems slightly odd in itself. These people have managed to find meaning in what seems to have no meaning. But, maybe, it had no meaning because no one had given it meaning. So, these people have in fact created meaning opposed to found a meaning. But, as we can't understand their way of thinking and journey towards this meaning they have found, we can't comprehend the meaning so therefore can't accept it. This meaning, and path to the meaning, is a different reality to ours. So, in fact, these mad people are living in a different reality! Though they share the same time band, space, forces, laws of nature and resources we do, they do not share the same logical centre. Perhaps theirs is not functioning well enough, functioning too well or not functioning at all. Logic allows us to accept things. Absence of logic means we can't accept things.
We are living among many different types of people with different social disorders, cognitive disorders and physical disorders. We are very quick to label these people yet, very slow to understand them. And if you think about it, despite the fact some of us are madder than others, perhaps we are all mad! What do you think? Are we all mad or is it only a select few of us? Comment below and follow me here or on Twitter@
