The mentally disturbed do not employ the Principle of Scientific Parsimony: the most simple theory to explain a given set of facts. They shoot for the baroque. You know the truth, the brick-hard, irregular, slithery surface of truth. Heavy that leads to the grave. For everyone and everything. It is amazing that when someone else spouts the nonsense you yourself believe you can readily perceive it as nonsense.

No, the true measure of a man is this: how quickly can he respond to the needs of others and how much of himself he can give. If reality differs from person to person, can we speak of reality singular, or shouldn't we really be talking about plural realities? And if there are plural realities, are some more true more real than others? What about the world of a schizophrenic? Maybe it's as real as our world.
