It's not my place to make any comment whatsoever about the poster's mental state when they haven't disclosed anything themselves, and I'd never dream of engaging in any kind of psychoanalysis on an internet forum.

She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

Fire-alarm went off the other day at 10.30am, and it wasn't a drill. So I do what I normally do, and go find a pub to ride it out.

Most pubs don't open at that time, except one notoriously rough one close-by. I went in all the same. It was early enough that I didn't expect trouble, but even so, the atmosphere was pretty bad. A combination of alcoholics and night-shift I guess.

Before my pint was in my hand, a randomer was demonstrating a Tibetan spinning rite that he said would allow me to live forever since it makes the electrons in the brain spin round their nuclei faster. He also explained that he had learned from a shaman how to metamorph into anything, but wouldn't demonstrate in the pub because of the CCTV. We then got on to the tumours that he'd had in his brain for twelve years, the new-world order, Charka eyes, and so on.

I'm a polite guy in real life, and have some personal experience with mental problems, and was nodding through most of this. The metamorphing stuff I nearly burst out laughing at, and when he mentioned his cybernetic implant, I was having to make a seriously controlled effort to contain myself. Somehow, I calmly responded to his statement "the implant makes me have dark thoughts" with "well, could that just be the tumours?"

I've no fucking idea what to do in that situation, and would welcome any suggestions. I've an application to volunteer at the local Crisis centre, hoping that I can get some advice from people with professional experience so I don't feel so helpless talking to people with mental issues.

Randomer? Another new term I don't remember hearing before.

So he couldn't metamorphosize into himself without brain tumours then?

I started replying, detailing all the semantic errors in the disclaimers, especially the one about accurate semantics in a sentence (if that's even an appropriate appellation) that doesn't parse correctly, and then saw the next two hours of my life in the size of the left-hand scroll bar.

Suffice it to say that the OP is bollocks from start to finish. At least two of those disclaimers aren't disclaimers, the first two are categorically incorrect and betray a truly colossal ignorance of what science is and how it works, which doesn't bode well for somebody who claims his arguments are against science. His 'arguments' are against a caricature of science that bears no resemblance to the real thing.

In short, I couldn't be bothered.

Well I don't bother addressing canard-riddled output for the benefit of the generator thereof, because all too often, generators of canard-riddled output swiftly reveal themselves to be immune to even elementary education. I address said output in the interests of discoursive diligence, namely, ensuring that others encountering said output are suitably warned about the nature of the material they are facing.

However, even I have limits in this regard. And I speak here as someone who recently devoted the best part of a megabyte of text to the dismantling of a creationist's absurdites and fabrications. When confronted with output that bears all the hallmarks of clinically significant mental derangement, I conclude that I cannot offer a solution, and call for medical professionals to intervene.

Yeah, this is worse than not even wrong. Assertions can be so incoherent and/or inconsistent that a logical, reasoned reply isn't really possible.

Cut from the same cloth, you and I. :)

I believe a mental healthcare professional has already issued a summary diagnosis upthread which, while not exactly robust, being rooted in a reading of text, would seem to concur.

Metamorphising doesn't physically change the subject. It's about manipulating the observer's Chakra eye (or the Chakra eye of a CCTV camera) into seeing what you want it to see.

Pfftt...do you not know anything about this stuff?

The second stage of this temporary cure occurs here, you will be taken into a lucid dream state but it will be strange; have your lucid dreamer hands at the ready and create a shape in them that you can peer through; an example, the illuminati triangle made out of the fingers---when you have made a shape out of your hands, wait, and you will enter a dream within a dream. Since you're half awake, it will be in reality, perhaps the room your in, and appear more like an abstracted room. Remember the prior statement about the hands and the shape, with my example; when peering through the 'illuminati triangle', you may have any thought you want, and then you will be presented with a response to that thought, in dream form, where you may find philosophical or scientific answers about that thought; this is because the second dream state is the temporary cure for the word---it's required to have a sense of a wordless mind. You can do the hand trick multiple times, dreams within dreams within dreams, but you will eventually wake up under the pressure of one of the dreams.
