How did I miss this all night? My moral reaction towards your theory means little as I wouldn't mind it being a "mind" thing. And I don't find my morals being insulted by your theory. My intelligence, maybe. But not my morals. I realize that anytime you bring this up you try and disarm logic by blaming it on people reacting defensively but from what I've seen all that's ever been brought up against your argument is logic that you haven't been able to counter. Hence I feel you have a theory that you are so proud of as being yours you won't give it up for common sense. Nonetheless, let's try again and see if fanaticism will make way for true conversation this time.
A) I explore my subconcious mind without getting attacks and I get attacks when it's not being explored. If this is some basis to explain dreams/REM sleep and attacks, explain episodics then. Explain chronics like me who manage to get 7 hours of sleep once in a while. Explain the willingness and ability to be a self-examined man without an attack.
B) Why is it that the hallucinegenics work resemble Serotonin? Why doesn't XTC work when it's more enjoyable to the mind and subconcious mind? What about Coke? Man, try that and you won't have a problem with your conscious or subconscious. Angel Dust? IS it just the psychoactive abilities that purges out minds? What about Mescaline? Why is it only things something that resembles serotonin that works?
It looks to me like you are so determined to see the forest that you look and see a frog and say "That's green. It must be a bunch of trees making up a forest." Face it. You're looking at a frog's leg and calling it a tree. You're looking at the entire frog and calling it a forest.
