Ya, your interpretation of your “monkey fire” is everything. You will react with fight or flight, or you will react with other emotions, or you won’t react depending on how the individual interprets its forms.
I can go through this city I’m in, and I can observe many people that interpret things to being what they are not while they otherwise show no sign of serious scz but maybe a mild, pseudo form of scz. Just because one is not scz doesn’t mean that the mind is something they’ve studied more than an scz who has given a lot of time to the research and thinking about it.
The truth is though that it was always much safer to interpret the voices as being figments of the mind rather than some kind of “wireless transponder” effect or apparition. It’s the difference of living two totally different lives where you are either living according to the values of the voices as being a serious determining effect of what you have done, deserve, and where you should go vs. a life where you are paying attention to the actual data put in front of you, assuming only what is knowable about, and discarding all of the excess rubbish of the “positive effects” of scz such as the space ghost voices or whatever.
After 10 years one winds up in completely different lifestyles depending on which way the voices were interpreted. An scz could be living wealthy with plenty of social affiliations vs. living in poverty or even on the streets.
To follow the suggestions of the lame mind’s scz extra effects is like following google maps to the T around every turn wherever it takes you even right over a cliff. It just has to be understood what a mind can do before anyone can take this journey successfully, and I don’t mean just some substance about the different cortexes and chemical neural stuff. I mean what can a mind’s mental faculties do informationally and logically in regard to the few dozen of categories of experiences that it produces. I mean psychology doesn’t even mention anything about a “logical fallacy” and how that plays a major role in the scz’s delusions and false interpretations, and yet that is the simplest way to describe the experience of scz is through the definition of a logical fallacy.
If one believes logical fallacies, then one is misusing their mind. It’s plain and simple. No mention of this, but the bountiful magic beans are up for sale, and you may not ever figure out the part about how logical fallacies work in the mind, but you sure got more magic beans in new varieties every so often.
