When I think back on the ideation that I experienced what I try to understand and in my opinion believe to be true is that it is my very mind which is lying to me. Let’s say you were a scientist and you had 3 scientific tools like Geiger counters. Two of them said that there was low levels or nonexistent radiation and the third said there was high radiation. So you can assume the third Geiger counter is faulty. So you don’t believe the faulty tool.
In the instance of a Geiger counter, you would throw it away and get a new one. Or maybe have it repaired. I don’t know what they do with bad ones. You can’t throw away your brain. Also instead of being completely faulty, your brain is only sometimes faulty. So instead you have to use the scientific tool with the understanding that sometimes it is faulty. Your brain is the very tool with which you store and use information. If that information is suspect then anything you think happened can be suspect as well.
I don’t know if there are aliens, demons, or angels. I have my personal beliefs but those are for me only and I try to never push them on people. But if, not even as a schizophrenic but just as a person who understands even normal people have faulty mental input and storage, I saw an angel or demon I’d say move along pal I need to get to the grocery store or go visit my sister or whatever.
I don’t know what the strange things that happened to you were. They could be real and I can’t prove or disprove them. I do know that you are an intelligent, articulate, and thoughtful person in a bad spot. Humans are naturally curious. We want to make sense out of everything. But as a schizophrenic maybe we have to accept that we can’t.
