The theory I am about to pose is based on the following postulates:
- The mind has capabilities infinite
- The universe is not infinite*
- The MANY WORLDS theory by Everett (Who interestingly is again from Princeton, like John Nash who has inspired my theory) Read about 'Many worlds theory' on http://science.howstuffworks.com/science-vs-myth/everyday-myths/quantum-suicide3.htm
- That schizophrenia is a disease 'in' the mind, and the structure of a schizophrenics brain diffres from an ordinary person.
- Dimension travel is a concept I propose.
- I'd also like to acknowledge the movie 'A Beautiful mind' which inspired my thought.
Here it goes...
A schizophrinic sees a different reality, different from ordinary people, nonetheless real to him.
So real, that he feels for it!
The many worlds theory says, there are parellel universes staging all possible outcomes of ones action and reaction. The catch being, that one is just not 'aware' of the happening.
What if some people are...
What if a schizophrenics brain percieves parellel reality.
John Nash's friends must exist, in some 'other' universe right. Just that people on Earth dont see them. He DOES.
Which brings me to my next point.
If these 'parellel' actions are taking place in 'another' universe... then how can they be percieved in ours.
Like i mentioned, what if the universe is NOT infinite, in terms of size*.
What I am saying is there could be INFINITE DIMENSIONS*.
SO 'parellel' actions arent actually taking place in 'another space', but OURS! Just that they are at a different 'dimension', thus the ordinary dont see it... BUT A SCHIZOPHRENIC DOES.
PS: I am not worthy enough to theorise my concept of 'dimension travel', or define it.
I have no basis of attributing such capabilities to schizophrenics.
