Madness as manifestation of the world around. Moscow in 1990ies

Having looked at Moscow in 1989 in my previous post, we are going to stay there for the time being, but move a couple of years forward. We are staying there, because I want to start demonstrating that madness is not just a state that affects individuals at some point or another, but can also … Continue reading Madness as manifestation of the world around.

Psychosis, Russia, Kashpirovsky and mass hypnosis

Before we launch fully into the phenomenon of what the psychiatrists define as ‘psychosis’, we need to set up a scene. ‘Psychosis’ as such as defined as ‘a loss of touch with reality’, but my aim (a humble one) is to demonstrate, eventually, that those who go into this state (naturally) often reach another reality, … Continue reading Psychosis, Russia, Kashpirovsky and mass hypnosis
