Regarding all this Brit-talk I have to say, curious that the forum comment system’s spell-checker flags Americanized words like “realize,” “behavior,” “color” (and “Americanize,” for that matter) as incorrect. Veeeerrrry fiiiishy
exodus But armchair philosophizing probably doesn’t help.
Maybe not, but I’m drawn to doing it nonetheless! It’s likely the symptom of something else, but no idea what
Gaagaagiins Very interesting. That may on a grand scale be a healthier way of looking at it. And I guess too the reason these are considered disorders in the first place is we’ve unconsciously agreed that there is something which constitutes natural order in a person’s behavior (as you said). I guess the question I would wonder about is whether, in a world without as many rigidly defined behavioral conventions, certain conditions would still be so problematic for a person that the person might still want to treat it. Like for example if a person’s schizophrenic hallucinations happen to manifest most often at night and keep the person from sleeping, or a severe mood disorder. Maybe too free of context to speculate about.
