PSYCHOSIS, 1. we know what psychosis is these days. It is simply an evil purpose; it means a definite obsessive desire to destroy. Now anybody has a few evil purposes when they suddenly think of this or that, that they don’t want to do. They’d say “Boy I’d like to get even with that guy” or something. That’s not what we’re really talking about. This is the monitoring evil purpose which monitors all of this guy’s activities, and that is a real psycho. Now there are people who are PTS and who act fairly psycho and there are people who are quote “aberrated.” They’ve simply got out-points in their thinking. The psychiatrist never differentiated amongst these people. That’s because he thought people had a disease called mental illness. It is not true. There is no such thing as a mental illness. There is no bacteria which produces psychosis. (ESTO 3, 7203C02 SO I) 2. if he’s real crazy he can’t see anything. He’s just got to fight. Well, if you knew what he was fighting you wouldn’t feel so sorry for him. He’s back there on the track a few trillion years fighting the Ugbugs. He’s solving a present time problem which hasn’t in actual fact existed for the last many trillenia in most cases, and yet he is taking the actions in present time which solve that problem with the Ugbugs. What the devil is that all about? Well the guy is totally stuck in present time. He’s got 99.999999999% of his attention units at some past period of the track. An exact precise period of the track. And in that precise exact instant he is fighting off something and is trying to handle something by some means and those are the means and practices which he is using in present time. He does not have any problem with you. You do not have any problem with him at all. You aren’t back there where he is and he isn’t up where you are. Now you can assume there are problems, but that isn’t the problem he’s trying to solve. That is the whole anatomy of psychosis. (SH Spec 61, 6505C18) 3. Dwindli ng sanity is a dwindling ability to assign time and space. Psychosis is a complete inability to assign time and space. (Scn 8-80, p. 44)

PSYCHOSIS, 1. the root word “psych” refers only to a being or soul and the “osis” could loosely be defined as “the condition of.” (Cert, Vol. 13, No. 2) 2. psychosis could be technically called an inability to be; so it naturally is an inability to communicate because beingness is a problem in anchor points and that’s a problem in communication .
