Medical professionals claim to have no clue as to what causes schizophrenia. It is complex and baffling, and has defied understanding forever. Brace yourself; this author is about to briefly explain schizophrenia in a common sense way in plain and simple language.
The truth is that every schizophrenic knows exactly why he or she is behaving in bizarre ways, and each schizophrenic bears the ultimate responsibility for his or her negative mental, emotional, physical state and circumstances. In short, a schizophrenic is subconsciously controlling everything he or she thinks, feels, and does. Doctors believe that a schizophrenic is “out of control.” The exact opposite is true. Every schizophrenic is in a state of extreme selfish reaction (to extremely controlling and abusive parents) and extreme selfish control.
Schizophrenics live primarily in their controlled ideas and imaginings. As young children, they began psychologically fleeing a harsh, restrictive, usually sexually abusive, parental environment. They sought “safe” places in their minds. They began subconsciously indulging in and orchestrating illusions and fantasies that they perceived as “better than” the realities they were physically experiencing at home.
Each schizophrenic creates and orchestrates his or her mental and emotional state with subconscious reactive, controlling choices to deny reality. Each is willfully defying what he or she knows is the right and lovingly responsible way to be. Such choices have been repeatedly reoccurring for many years.
If those frightened, confused, and angry children chose to flee to their illusionary places often enough, with subconscious commitment and passion, they ultimately crossed a line where those “safe” mental places became extremely difficult to consciously return from. When a child, teen, or adult subconsciously controls his or her perception, thinking, feeling, recollection, and expression to an extreme, by consistently deluding, denying, fabricating, fantasizing, suppressing, repressing, and lying, he or she will inevitably develop symptoms of a severe mental illness. When done to a consistent, reactive, willful, defiant extreme, symptoms of schizophrenia are likely to start appearing.
Every normal (honest) person can identify with most schizophrenic symptoms. They become abnormal and become bizarre because of their consistency, extremeness, and duration. Who, at times, has not lacked interest, energy, warmth, and humor and become apathetic? Who has not falsely perceived or hallucinated, saw or heard things that others did not, became unduly afraid or paranoid, indulged in false beliefs or misinterpretations, and deluded one’s self about events and their significance? Who can say that he or she has not held firmly to a conviction and doggedly rejected alternate explanations against all reason?
Who has not ever wanted to be alone, talked nonsense, became restless, preoccupied or obsessed with something, offered unreasonable explanations for a behavior, became ambivalent, was unable to think straight, became anxious, felt confused, forgot what he or she had intended to say, became frightened, confused, showed blunted or flat emotion, or fantasized in a wishful or illogical way-especially in times of stress? Every person’s negative drives, negative symptoms, and self-destructive acts emerge from subconscious selfish, controlling intentions that, essentially, are “selfish reactions.”
Many complicated factors underlie the selfishly reactive choices a person makes. Subconscious parent-related negative agreements are always a major influential factor. These negative agreements are entered into, honored, and enacted with little or no conscious awareness. Nonetheless, their enactment can have devastatingly destructive effects. In every case, the schizophrenic has been hurt in consistent and extreme mental, emotional, physical, and sexual ways by one or both parents (or parent substitute). All of us selfishly react. Not reacting to the wrong choices of others is hard; it is our biggest human challenge.
What separates the normal selfish person from the schizophrenic is that the normal selfish person probably has not been as severely abused, nor is he or she reacting as selfishly or intensely. There are no laboratory tests for schizophrenia. Diagnosis is made by examining a person’s family history, his or her emotional history, current symptoms, and the presence of other types of disorders. The characteristic symptoms of schizophrenia are delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior, and negative symptoms such as mood flattening, the inability to speak, mental confusion, or aphasia, and a general lack of desire, motivation, and persistence. It is common that a schizophrenic will not start or complete any major tasks.
The naivety of most psychiatric and psychological professionals is shameful. They insist on rationalizing the obvious fact that a schizophrenic has reached the highest state of willful, defiant, selfish control and reaction. Everything about their symptoms clearly reflects that fact, but these medical professionals irrationally and absurdly claim that schizophrenia is a “disease” over which the sufferer has no control.
The professional “no-fault” view of this disorder leads doctors to assure the parents of their schizophrenic patients that they did nothing wrong. That is enough to make any schizophrenic feel crazier and reinforces his or her deep sense of unreality and hopelessness. To summarize, the true cause of schizophrenia (or any of the less severe disorders) is selfish reaction and selfish control.
