Seriously, I have been wondering. If you follow quantum physics which portends that time is not linear and it’s all a matter of our perception, then couldn’t we apply this thinking to our mental states?
I mean who says the guy eating cockroaches on the street is insane. Many countries serve these insects as delicacies. So the question isn’t that they are in edible, but our perception of it being so.
so if many thousands of folks eat insects, then wouldn’t it mean this guy was sane too? Or do they have to be roasted and served with a great sauce?
Think about it. What does our society claims as sane behavior but if we did the same thing in the depths of the Amazon Forrest would get us “exorcised” or something.
It wasn’t too long ago that the thought of flying would get you burnt at the stake and men wanting to become women would be scoffed at, yet now both are growing common.
so what is sanity? Perception? Or fact? Will we ever know?
