Angry man discovers cure for Schizophrenia. Claims it's a language.

"All great truths begin as blasphemies." - George Bernard Shaw said that.

Strange as this may sound to you. In my non-professional opinion, but as a Certified Peer Specialist, I can tell you that from personal lived experience Schizophrenia is the result of a language communication. This language is like no other, yet that's exactly what it is. Schizophrenia, the language, comes through us in all linguistic flavors, English, Spanish, Chinese, French, etc!!! That is why in no matter what country or language a person speaks, Schizophrenia is present! This is also why so many Schizophrenics who are speaking Schizophrenia don't see themselves as "ill." They may not see themselves as speaking "Schizophrenia" as I clearly do but they certainly don't see themselves as sick either, after all you can't medicate a language. Like Arabic to Arabs, our best bet is understanding it.

Form those seeing it as a disease, the "professionals" have a name for this called, Anosognosia. This, they say, from their perspective, is a lack of awareness which a person "suffering" seems unaware of (or denies) the existence of his or her condition... Psychiatry sees this as a sign of ignorance on the part of the peer. As a language, this is also why many are resistant to psychiatric medications. This language also presents itself under the guise of Bi-polar and Schizo-effective disorders. Under the right situations, this language can be understood. That is the best form of "cure." Just like anyone wanting to understand a foreign language, you just need the best translator.

From Randy, a Friend from Facebook: Imogene, I've seen you refer to Schizophrenia as a language many times, but have not thought much about what this would mean or imply.

My understanding is that the purpose of language is to facilitate communication between people who otherwise would be unable to communicate with, at least verbally or very easily. So are you saying that this is a sort of private or 1-way language? How does another person know if they are translating this "language" properly? With known, existing languages, like foreign languages, the language is something that exists and can be articulated outside of any language user. Is that true of the language of Schizophrenia? In other words, if I sent you a transcript from someone with Schizophrenia who you don't know and know nothing about, could you translate it, not matter how bizzare-sounding it might seem?

Are you proposing something similar to being able to interpret dreams, as if dreams had their own language? Not sure there's ever been any consensus that there is an actual language of dreams (e.g. universal symbols), but his has been claimed at various times.

My reply: Always, Randy, noticing and asking the best and brilliant questions! This, my astute friend, would mean that our medical professionals have incomplete data. This would mean that our religious doctrines have incomplete data. This also means that as incomplete, both halves of the "coin" -religion and science- would have to begin sharing notes and playing nice with each other. lol.

The implication! Aah yes that. The implication is that once understand completely, anyone with Schizophrenia-like symptoms can be healed, cured, and/or understood, despite appearances and beliefs.

Your understanding of language is partially complete. If you presume that communication such as this only takes place between humans. WRONG!!! By that notion, my friend, you insult other species such as insects, plants, animals, and even Earth. Oh yes,I said, Earth too. If you think Mother Earth doesn't communicate, think again.

To your #1 question. No, not private at all. Just subtle!

#2- many don't know it, there in lye the issue; all they sense a change. On the other hand many do, not initially though. Doing so "properly" is more or less irrelevant. Enter the Schizophrenics. They are trying but don't have the right tools at their disposal. MEDICATION CERTAINLY ISN'T IT!!! Now mystics, well you know what Joseph Campbell said about Mystics versus Schizophrenics, don't you?

#3-Yes, You'd have to put away any preconceived ideas about communication aside first to get it. Then explore works by Neale Donald Walsch, Helen Schuman, Debbie Ford, Iyanla vanzant, Gary Zukaz, James Redfield, Maryann Williamson, Paramahansa Yogonanda,these are some of my favorites but there are so many more.

#4-True? Yes!!! Proven...pending. Explore the works by psychologist, Gina Kuperberg. She’s the closest 'professional ' on the case to date. Sending "transcript" to me is helpful but again irrelevant. Let's compare that to the art of a child and one seasoned artist shall we. The artist has developed their skills and honed her craft. Your friend, though appearing as an adult, has child-like comprehension of art. It's as if he's drawing stick figure houses, trees and animals while an artist does 3D drawings. You follow?

(No offense to your friend by the way.)

#5-Dreams? Dreams are of shoots of the same ability just in a different context. Think theirs a fine line between psychics that read dreams and physics that read metaphysical for no reason? In either physics or psychics, add or take away the "C" in either words and see things clearer. It helps to remove the vial. How bout psychotics and psychics? Take "OT" out of psychotics and what's left? It's like having or not having an extra chromosomes cell. Are you following me?

#6- Census? Sure there is. What do you think the APA and DSM manuals are? That's recorded accurate census of who speaks it, what age, etc. They don't label them the "Psychiatric Bible" for no reason. Just like we have the Holy Scripture written by Matthew, Luke, John etc, doesn't mean that the APA and The DSM, which was complied in a similar manner, by similar Schizophrenics, isn't less important. MAYBE MORE SO, time will tell. Back in those days they where referred to as heretics (or heiratics). "The Hieratic script was invented and developed more or less at the same time as the hieroglyphic script and was used in parallel with it for everyday purposes such as keeping records and accounts and writing letters. It was used until the 26th Dynasty, though by that time, it was only used for religious texts, while the Demotic script was used for most other purposes." (Google)

Notice Demotic script was used too, and yet that term "demotic" is very close to "demonic". In most cases today, from a more religious notion, what do they call Schizophrenics, and as a clue it ain't demotic? I'd say your friend was a modern day heiratic.

I've said too much but love the questions and the opportunity to explain. My book, "Schizophrenia, God & Language" will be out soon. To order the $5 manuscript, shipping price not included, let me know. I'll be setting up a website where you (and my other peers) can do so or you can wait until it's published.

Randy  Imogene, thanks. There's a lot here and I will be interested to see your book.

Just to clarify - I don't assume that language is only something humans have. I know that some animals probably have non-verbal or verbal forms of communication.

If Schizophrenia is like speaking a foreign language, surrounded mostly by people who don't speak it, I wonder if there are others who do speak and understand it. By analogy, if someone speaks only Chinese lives in the U.S. they will have trouble communicating with those around them, but there are certainly lots of Chinese speakers elsewhere, particularly in China. Is the language of each person with Schizophrenia different or is it truly a language spoken and understood by many others, like Chinese, English, Spanish or Sign-language?

Igomene Joseph Video evidence of young Schizophrenics speaking Schizophrenia. Enjoy the conversations.

Randy *Maybe you could make a case to provide translators for those who speak this language primarily as a reasonable accommodation. Could ask Diane. *

Igomene Joseph Why don't you? If You get the gist of my point then how bout you and I work on that together? Like I said, you my friend are very astute when it comes to getting the better answers from me. You have a way of getting directly to the issue and presenting questions that get to the "heart" of the matter.
Share our discussion. Visit my website:

Randy Thanks, will look at it. I wouldn't pursue the accommodation thing because I'm still not convinced about your theory but am open to it. Even if true, would probably have to show that the person couldn't communicate in English.

Igomene Joseph Elaborate on this please: "Even if true, would probably have to show that the person couldn't communicate in English."

Randy Would be no need for a translator as an accommodation if they could communicate in English as well as in Schizophrenia (or whatever you are calling the language those dx with Schizophrenia).

Igomene Joseph Those who speak are called Schizophrenics. I have a celebrity who's my best example. She played Lisa, on a TV show call "Save By The Bell."
