What if madness is simply in the gap in between our ability to grasp the full weirdness of reality and our ability to handle that, to find ways to harness it, and to incorporate it into a liveable life?
…and what if life is really about holding ourselves open enough to learn how to handle any amount of weirdness?
…and what if we could learn to support people as they learn that?
Seems reasonable to me 🙂
There is a Shakespeare quote: There is more ? (forget words) than in all of your philosophy, or something. Good thought here!!!!! Indeed, sometimes mad thoughts are ‘saner’ than reality!
You mean this one…?
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
