Re: Anhedonia

How about the microbiom we contain ? 5 kilograms or 10 pounds of bacteria and other microorganisms every adult. They influence our feelings of pleasure. It´s good to stay on good terms with them and to greet them daily, saying for example: Hello little darlings, how are you today ? What dainties sha...

Re: Anhedonia

Is a surprise a pleasure ? For many of us, it. We can arrange circumstances in our lives for surprises to happen. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::: I read a book about self-developement through drama techniques. One of the numerous exercises is to write a letter to someone, being unusually honest. One is ...

Re: Anhedonia

My approach is to try out new things. In case of problems concerning shallow human interactions one can experiment with one´s own expectations. 1. I just predict what will happen and later see if I had predicted correctly or if there had been some substantial deviations. (Usually things happen diffe...

Re: Happiness

There are ways of putting oneself in a happy mood though.

Listening to music, classical music in my case.

Remembering some cherries. Dwelling upon them.
Making sweet projects.

There.

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

But it might have been just as well the other way round: because a couple stay longer in a place and relax a gangster or a terrorist shows up and starts shooting at random and they are dead. We can control a lot of things but most of them we cannot control, like tornados, bad guys, and the like. It´...

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

You say, ‘If you have something good to criticise please tell us.’ How about women? They are good, but need criticising much of the time. Is that what you meant? I meant and I still do that women want to improve so suggestions about how they can achieve it are welcome. Especially if they are formul...

Re: In a relationship, what is a good match?

A problem: some of our expectations may not be conceptualized yet, so we cannot say what they are, we are not aware of them even, not on a conscious level. People then try to excuse themselves by vague expression like: "somehow I did not not feel happy with this person". Simple expectations seem to...

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

Skip and Greta are women ????

I don´t mind if it is so but what a surprise.

Women want to know themselves, they are interested in psychological issues, so they love substatiated criticism.

If you have something good to criticise please tell us.

To me a person is decent or not. Man or woman.

Re: Schizophrenia

These imagined voices coming from outside, can they be produced by drugs like LSD ?

An illusionist or a magician produces illusions for entertainment.
There is no danger in that.
But if we tried to produce an illusion of a voice talking to us in our head ?

Re: Schizophrenia

Another interesting mental disorder is when someone wants to get attention no matter what, like a troll does. What makes you think that that can be classified as a 'mental disorder'? One might just as well suppose that someone who is pompous and claims to know everything has a 'mental disorder'. Ye...

It would be useful to have some insight into the psyche of such a person.

Re: Schizophrenia

Yes, these questions are very good. People should be interested in what is wrong with other people. Schizophrenia sounds dangerous. An epileptic attack looks dangerous but the person is not, so it is good to know how to help when it occurs to someone. It´s an important moral decision how to react to...

Re: Physical Causation vs other types of causation

In maths we distinguish between a necessary condition and a sufficient condition. In law we are taught about a conditio sine qua non (a condition that if left out the occuring result = a criminal act would not have taken place) and a Zurechnung (can a certain chain of events be blamed on an individu...

Re: Schizophrenia

It is known what can cause depression, for example some terrible changes in one´s life like death of a mate or losing one´s job or suffering from an accident. A psychosis is something I don´t know much about. Coelho has explained a little to me what schizophrenia is about. It is important to know wh...
