Apple seed and apple thorn,
Wire, briar, limber lock
Three geese in a flock
One flew East
One flew West
And one flew over the cuckoo's nest
This is the rhyme that inspired the book and later the film "one flew over the cuckoo's nest" (according to wikipedia) about institutionalization of the human mind. You could say that mental illness and creativity does the opposite, deinsitutionlize it, liberates it. I might be the same neurological processes that are involved, and if so why is it expressed in different ways in different humans?
I am just playing with the how future of psychiatry could look. Instead of trying to kill whatever processes we think are responsible, could their expressions be manipulated? I know people who rely on neuropharmacological treatment to be able to leave their house so I am not having a go at the medical industry (well maybe a bit). I am playing with the thought of instead of hitting what we want to kill, we could hit something that change how the process is expressed in the individual. Can it be supported and other pathways be manipulated...
Yes it is way out and probably wrong....outside the box...hmmm.....should I be worried?
