The literature calls it a "splitting of the ego," a "division of sense," and a "psychosis of identity." The literature is, of course, in the business of perpetuating its own existence, so it is not unexpected that it is filled with reflexive terminology and self-referential phraseology. The schizophrenic, to the modern dull-witted psychologist, is a victim. He or she is in a schism of denial.
"Curing" a schizophrenic through regimented psychopharmacology is equivalent to cutting off a hand in order to stop a patient from chewing his nails. Like many of the solutions offered by the unenlightened community of "professionals," the prevention and cure of psychotic behavior through psychopharmacology, electro-shock therapy, and other, cruder, psychological techniques is tantamount to fixing a chip in a delicate china cup by smashing it with a sledgehammer and then gluing all the pieces back together.
Resolving schizophrenic breaks is a matter of repairing broken duality pairings. There are twelve symbolic references that all schizophrenic breaks deviate from, and it is matter of re-mapping the patient's confused neural fabric to the existing patterns.
