That’s kind of how I’m handling the psychosis… it’s a spiritual thing at all though for me.

It’s plausible. The material body that we have as of now is not designed to live forever. It’s possible that the spirit detaches to the corporeal nature of the body and we are left with defective bodies but enstrengthening effects on the spirit.
