Am I mad? Are you mad? We must be mad! All of us!
This man is supposed to be mentally ill but he does not even recognise that there is anything wrong with him. He only knows that there is something wrong with him because people point out the differences, that being, he sits, talks, and stands differently when he is at and away from the piano, but he does not understand it. He was diagnosed with schizophrenia, which the doctor did not see fit to explain or tell him about. Mentally ill people do not know that they are mentally ill until someone who claims to be mentally stable points it out. This is strange because everyone can be considered mentally sick, so how can one mental person tell another mental person that they are mental, some just hide it better than others.(Low self esteem, jealousy, envy, laughing at horror movies, depression, dark humour, narcissism, posting hundreds of pictures just to get likes, all point towards mental instability).
How can someone fix something that isn't considered broken? How can one help someone who has a mental illness if they do not recognise that they have one. A comment to this video said "what if we are the ones incapable of understanding their higher evolved mind and we perceive it as a sickness. It's been proven that most have a higher IQ level than most". Which actually does make sense.
I think society is dependent on science and medicine the same way it was once dependent on religion. Even though most things can be proven, there is also many things that is just theory. If a doctor says "this man is mentally sick" even though it cannot be physically proven, it would be believed. The human mind is so complex that you literally cannot make sense of it. Society believes whatever makes the most sense because most are afraid of what is different and what cannot be comprehended. A saying that I love is:
Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth
