The definition of mental illness

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

The definition of mental illness

You won’t find this in handbooks like the DSM and ICD (used in Europe)

That’s because the people writing books like this are mentally ill.

The biggest problems in psychology is not taking the three structural problems of existence seriously.

1.) the pleasurable exclusive access problem. (This is the mental illness of people who marry, have sex or sexual like behavior, live affluently In a way that they’re knowingly hurting someone else’s feeling while doing it. It’s called sociopathic sadism.

2.) closely related - the negative zero sum problem.

Feeling elation when there’s a loser in any scenario

3.) not caring about the broad problem of consent violation.

That’s it.

That’s my DSM. That’s my ICD.

The purpose of life is to give everyone individually what they always want at the expense of no being - forever.

The biggest problem of life is the, “hey, I don’t want this to be happening” problem for everyone.

Next up: the definition of "condition". :wink:

Easy. A condition is what’s required for otherness to exist. It’s a platform. As in: we all require the condition of existence to exist in order for us to exist.

I take no delight in anything but the beauty of my mind. It is more beautiful than anything you currently can comprehend.
