Insanity is a perfectly rational response to an insane world

What must it be to see the world in angels and demons? What happens when we rip those illusions away? There is a tale of a schizophrenic man who thought he was a prophet. He wandered coatless in the winter, raving at the sky. Eventually, the medications worked, but he ultimately went off them preferring his imagination. Fractured as his world was, there he was special and in the end that was what he wanted. As do we all.
