"What's helped me the most so far is realizing that every hallucination is like a bowel movement: It's a bunch of processed waste your body is trying to get rid of. You may not be able to identify what each hallucination originated from (what you 'ate'), but you can control what your emotional state is, and thus how your 'turd' smells. Everything you see comes from within you, so ask yourself "Why would that be the natural result of my psychosis?""
"Hallucination is like dreaming, its just that you are awake when you hallucinate. Hypnosis seems like dreaming too, but the difference is that the hypnotist is controlling the person."
"Charles Bonnet syndrome is a special condition that only afflicts people with decreased vision abilities or blindness.The hallucinations are like bizarre, silent movies, playing out before the eyes of the watcher, who is unable to stop them. They can be anything -animals, cartoons, people in strange costume, shapes, even yourself- and they come and go very suddenly, with little to no warning."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
