    Hi guys,
    I was up late last night with a question on my mind. "Are schizophrenics wrong?" Sounds weird I know but think about it for a minute. Maybe they are seeing the real world and we say they are seeing things because they question the social norm. Who really knows what's real, for all we can observe we are in "The Matrix". What do you guys think, are people seeing what's real or what we draw as conclusions?


    Live Long and Prosper.

    Schizophrenic(s) should share the same worldview if they saw the same real world; but I think they are hallucinating/delusioning and was seeing random thing.

    Schizophrenic visions fail the most basic tool we have for separating reality from fiction; the scientific method. Their visions and delusions have no strong evidence to support them in most cases and go against what we have already learned about our world. While there is an infinitesimal possibility that we are living in a Matrix-type illusion imo, there is no good reason to take such notions seriously.
