adding page after watching John Nash doc:
35 min – rational thought .. he wrote.. imposes a limit on a person’s relation to the cosmos
he later called his remission periods.. interludes of enforced rationality..
to some extent..sanity is a form of conformity
people are always selling the idea that people with mental illness are suffering.. but it’s really.. not so simple.. i think mental illness or madness can be an escape also..

A society of lonely people, taught to think life is about money, left to scream at each other through screens, will have a depression and anxiety crisis. If they are then told their pain is just due to a chemical malfunction in their skulls, that crisis cannot be comprehended.

Depression, anxiety & addiction are not the problem. They are symptoms of the underlying problem – a culture where many people are disconnected (through no fault of their own) from the things that make life worth living.
from Paul J Rosch page:
Dr. Alexander Berglas’ work, Cancer; Its Nature, Cause and Cure (1957). Throughout this book runs the theme that cancer is a disease from which primitive peoples are relatively or wholly free, and that we are “threatened with death from cancer because of our inability to adapt to present day living conditions.

70k died of drug O/D’s in 2017. Combined w/this week’s Economist article showing the US’ suicide rate continues to rise even as the global average falls, it suggests something is very out of order in the US. https://t.co/mxvSoGAup9 (http://twitter.com/LukeGromen/status/1068138654932107265?s=17)

The core of addiction is not wanting to be present in your life, because your life is too painful a place to be. This is why imposing more pain or punishment on a person with an addiction problem actually makes their addiction worse.
