    A person who hears voices that aren't there is sick and needs treatment. If you know such a person you would do well to send them to the psychiatrist. They need help.

    Honestly, it's like seeing a person with tuberculosis coughing and saying it's perfectly normal. It's not. They are sick. Don't normalize the situation. In ignorance people can be extremely cruel.
    By not getting treated you are condemning them to a life of mental suffering that may be avoided.

    I believe that people can be very good at reading other people, and picking up on Non-Verbal queues that can point them towards hidden truths.

    Psychic? No, I don't believe that.

    No.

    There's no evidence of any such "radiation" or whatever that emits from a brain that can be picked up and interpreted by another brain. At least, not without technology, like an MRI or some such. They did an experiment a while back with an MRI where they could read people's minds, in a limited fashion, but that was only with a machine and only in a controlled environment. The subject would be in an MRI. He'd be shown a picture, the tester wouldn't know what the picture is, and be able to tell what the subject was looking at by the brain's activation pattern. That's the closest we've gotten.

    Anything else is a scam and an illusion.

    I never actually paid for anything, bold of you to assume such.

    I disagree. I have seen several psychiatrists who have all said medication for me would do more harm than good. As I have had them (voices) all my life, it is "normal" for me and having treatments would affect me negatively.

    TB is a totally different thing from being born with a condition.

    Yet, I'm not suffering at all. What you're calling a mental illness, while correct, is normal for me. It is literally normal for me to have 2 different "entities" in my head apart from myself. I went through childhood thinking everyone had voices in their heads and ended up hiding it for many years as I didn't want to be "the freak" at school.

    What if my schizophrenia is later on discovered to be some connection to another realm we simply do not have the technology to see or prove that exists YET. Look at science 500 years ago. Talking about the elements like we do today would have you burned at the stake. Our medical procedures would be seen as witchcraft. Our ability to take rocks from other fucking celestial bodies would be science fiction 100 years ago, yet we do it today. The human body might not be at the mercy of evolution much, but our minds have a long way to go. Who is to say we won't develop psychic abilities in the future?

    Could have gone with something more believable here instead of saying people with schizophrenia have wormholes in their heads.

    The afterlife is something we don’t yet understand and probably never will. There either is something after death or there isn’t. If there is, I think it’s entirely plausible that certain people can “tune” into that.

    even broken clock is right twice a day. all those future predictions are so vague as to fit whatever happens in a future, and that is on purpose. as for psychics that read people they are interacting with? its observation skills combined with good grasp of psychology and body language. or in shorter summary - its a con.

    Sorry, maybe schizophrenia is wrong word as I'm not medically schizophrenic. What they class it as are auditory hallucinations. Thing is we simply do not know enough about the human brain to say that there couldn't be some ability we can't explain yet.

    Infact, science doesn't know a lot about the human body as a whole. Take Crohn's Disease for example. They do not know what triggers it, they do not know why the immune system suddenly starts attacking itself. My personal consultant is one of the leading consultants in the world for crohn's and colitis, and he had admitted to me they know very little about the genetics involved.

    Actually, when he was still Mall Security he was another copy of, if not worse than, Shinra1 where he thought everyone and everything was sexist, racist, and/or homophobic. Still annoyed with the spamming of weird topics but he was much worse.

    There is a lot of fake ones out there who take advantage of others. But I believe in the supernatural and have experienced it. But it is not something which can be proven or convincing to anyone who is dead set against it being real.

    If I do not respond to your post directed at myself, there will be three reasons. 1. You are on my ignore list. 2. You did not make a post I felt was worthy of a response. 3. I simply never saw it, as I do not dig thru posts if I been offline for a while.

    What don't you understand? We know perfectly well what happens after death, where we go, etc. (spoiler alert: nothing/nowhere).
