Self-Knowledge, Hubris, and Delusions of Causation

Many of my delusions could be called delusions of causation. I’d “perceive” this one event X causing event Y and be distressed about it, which in turn is itself a third event Z, that I perceived to be caused by awareness of the first relation.

Schizophrenia sure learned me a lesson in modesty in some respects.

It’s called “delusions of reference” and it’s a condition. It went away for me on abilify thankfully.
