PHENOMENOLOGY OF DELUSIONS

[NOTE TO READERS. I DID NOT WRITE THIS. The following comes from one of my readers, Dr. Claudio Selame, who holds a Ph.D. in psychology. Dr. Selame and I have exchanged emails about the various mass delusions embraced by seemingly sane people — climate change, Ukraine is winning the war, Russia is on the verge of collapse, and the proliferation of transgenderism as a thing. I asked Dr. Selame to provide an article on this phenomena — delusional thinking. He kindly agreed to do so and wrote the following. I thank him for his contribution.]

Delusion is a persistent false belief regarding the self or persons or objects outside the self that is maintained despite indisputable evidence to the contrary (Merriam-Webster). How can delusions occur in rational beings who have the ability to examine information and arrive to the body of real things, events, and facts?

Delusions differ from propaganda or lying in that propaganda and lying are external manifestations of the desire to deceive, while delusions are beliefs albeit distorted or irrational.

The mother of a 13 year old boy was telling me recently that her son saw feminine sanitary napkins in the boy’s bathroom at school and he was feeling “weird”. The teachers at the middle school didn’t know about it and the parents were not notified about this new “guideline”. This new rule provided transsexual female kids at school the opportunity to go into the boy’s bathroom and have sanitary napkins available.  It was enough for girls to “think” they were males to use the boy’s bathroom.:snip:

A delusion, or a mistake? It all depends on the sources. BTW Unless Russians start popping out babies. n large numbers soon (100-200 years) there won't be a Russia. At least not as we see it today.

(now back to the article)

Most people say: “I cannot stop my mind”.  Yes, you can.  It does require training of the mind.

Most people do not have the Discipline (myself included) to do the training.
