The Worship of Truth and Reality (Satanism)


The Worship of Truth and Reality (Satanism): I worship truth and reality, and as such take knowledge seriously and only change my beliefs stubbornly slow: He who is quick to believe is easily fooled!

Re: mental illness

What weird questions!

Q1. I really don't know what you mean; mental illness can result from neurological disorders, life events, upbringing, genetic inheritance, disease and poisons. Sometimes mental illness results from societies judgementalism about what is 'normal'. Mental illness is just an awkward part of reality, and I don't know why you expect a specific answer about how it 'fits'!

Q2. I am not a therapist and am not qualified to try to cure mental illness. I know some ways of 'dealing with it', depending on the illness. For example with progressive neurological diseases simple changes in environment can yield positive results, even where drugs therapies fail. If you want advise on a specific disorder, I recommend you contact a specialist or see your GP.

Q3. Not sure what you're asking here: I am personally responsible for all my actions. The previous poster (Camelia) has posted at least a hundred renditions of her crazy stories to my journals on this server and on others, and also engages in email conversation with me. I've recommended that she sees professionals for mental help, and, I try to (nicely) explain to her the irrational nature of her beliefs. I get a lot of crazy emails, too many to respond to them all.

Q4. I am an undergraduate because I haven't completed a degree; I left my first degree (computer science) because I didn't like the debt resulting from student loans, so I got a job and worked in IT for years. Recently I have spent 2 years away from home in Afghanistan working in security; during which time I haven't been trying to finish any degrees.

Q5. Well I have an assured long-term career, so, any qualifications I get are for personal interest only. I don't really intend on 'doing' anything with them, although they might serve me once I leave my present job, I can always fall back on IT skills anyway.
