For every sane person that holds a particular belief there is a schizophrenic mirror, with the same belief.
For every sane person who believes in god there is a schizophrenic who claims to hear god.
For every sane person who believes in aliens there is a schizophrenic who claims to hear and see them.
For every sane person who believes in government spying, there is a schizophrenic who claims the government specifically spies on them and monitor’s their phone calls.
For every sane person who believes we’re living in a simulation, there is a schizophrenic trying to escape it.
Now this fact itself is not so disconcerting to the average person, but for most to see and encounter it, is.
Schizophrenics hold up a mirror to the things people say they believe and show them what it looks like when it is lived, and for most, it puts people in a precarious situation.
It means that for someone who claims to believe in god to meet a schizophrenic who says he literally hears him, puts them in a position of having to actively disprove what they themselves believe. Suddenly, the believer has to prove to someone, “Look, god does not talk to people and have a will for their lives,’ when they very much might think so themselves.
Suddenly, the person who claims to believe we’re living in a simulation, has to actively disprove the proposition, and assert that this is not the case, when they might still hold to it.
This encounter with the schizophrenic, can be so disconcerting and provoke such a livid dissonance with regard to comprehension of reason and irrationality that it becomes much simpler to export the process to ones most trained and excelled in meaningful appropriation of reason and logical discourse; psychiatrists.
Because of this skill with reason and discourse, such a professional is alone truly capable of engaging and expropriating the expression of such irrational beliefs with such careful discipline and expertise, to the point that it would be futile and dangerous for others to try.
