That's precisely why I came back and added something to my original post, although since I didn't change the title, it appears to be a response to joanne.
On the flip side - I lived with an M/D for 5 years and they definitely DO have delusions! And having gone to some of his M/D groups with him, I met quite a few others and have done significant reading on it as well. He was a member of Mensa, and there's a very fine line between the foresight of genius and the delusion of madness!
What's my point? (I do have one, actually!) Well, a grain of salt, exactly. There's some stuff that doesn't hang together, but on the flip side, Harvest Moon experienced some pretty wild stuff with her salt water bath, and this guy hasn't had any viral stuff etc taking place in quite some time.
I also firmly believe in the "woo-woo" factor, which simply means that just because we don't buy into something, doesn't mean that "something" isn't a truth - only that our mind at its current level of awareness, doesn't grasp that concept. We could be talking anything from simple psyhotherapy concepts to re-incarnation to astrological formations and their influence to UFOs to.....THE WORLD BEING ROUND! LOL) So who knows.
BTW - was that an intention pun? GRAIN OF SALT? (LOL)
