Lately I am intrigued by reading some crime news articles regarding criminal acts where the characters of often heinous crimes, claim to have made such acts because they have heard voices in the head that ordered him to commit.
From the protagonists statements that: “He asked me God,” “He told me the devil”, “A (generic) voice ordered me.”
Psychiatry talks about auditory hallucinations that according to a study in Italy would suffer at least two million people, most of them for various fears he would not talk with your doctor.
The 81% of respondents having been subjected to a questionnaire said they feel quite defined voices in their heads, both male and female, young and not .This perceptions in this study did not allow to confidently certify a psychiatric disorder. rather different for psychotic disorders characterized by a misperception of reality. The sufferer is not aware of the disease of which he is afflicted and assumed that his perception is completely authentic and real, even if someone else points out that what you see or hear is the result of a wrong comprehension of reality that lives .
Among other psychotic disorders schizophrenia mention that generates, anxiety, restlessness, social isolation, and often auditory hallucinations as told.
The hearing voices is an event not exactly framed entirely, a phenomenon of which there are many relics from the dawn of time, in every corner of the planet. Below I want to bring some links to articles on bloody crimes and facts related to the “hearing voices”.
The layman when they read these articles commenting on the banal: “But … it was crazy.”
In the distant past these events were attributable to: Trance, demonic possession, drug use, divination. From Socrates to Maya and many others like the mystics have tried to provide a logical interpretation. We, however, for a moment from the orthodox versions of Science and we choose so to speak-an esoteric approach to the paranormal. He talked about spirit guides, voices that invite or oblige to take a specific action, follow instructions.
I am reminded of the joint message to both groups of spiritualists one in Porto and one in Lisbon announcing a sensational event in Fatima, the apparition of the Virgin Mary. The Medium Felipe Calderon said he heard a voice telepathically announcing a thing has never happened before. But if the rumors were true? And if those who heard were they crazy? Think for a moment if indeed such entities as explained in this link .They interfere with our minds, with our actions and choices. Very reductive for me to talk about simple psychotic disorders, which certainly exist, but if a part, even a very small, it is not categorized as a psychosis? Simple talk about madness.
