You can have “normal madness.” No one will notice, we all have it, because we are all the same. Just don’t cross the border of this kind of “normal madness” status. You will be declared crazy at that very time.
– And, who establishes this border?
– Well, other people with “normal madness.”
The difference between craziness and normality is only of degree, not of quality. The differences in status don’t have any value. You are always at the border; a little thought and it can push you beyond what is considered normal …
Although to be honest to myself, :)) I think the most interesting people are the ones you can suspect for an amount of insanity. Or better said those people who can go mad at any time, not because the genetic background predisposes them, but rather because the intensity of their experiences leads them more quickly to the edge of their understanding.
The evolution of psychology in the deciphering of psychological mechanisms may eventually lead to humble acceptance that, in fact, madness, despair, contradiction, paradox, and obsession are the basic traits of man. The human, the “organism” that has surpassed his animalistic condition and opened his/her eyes to a metaphorical, symbolic world, with social agreements, meant to straighten millions of years living on the unconscious.
