  1. Somebody can have a bad few years which form negative pathways in the brain, where unhealthy or morbid thinking becomes habitual. This can effect behaviour (less exercise, less socializing, bad eating habits), deepening it all into depression. Is that a mental health crisis or a spiritual problem? Alternatively, if it's a pure brain-problem, like you can't produce enough serotonin, then only medical intervention can correct the "problem." What if you simply feel like the world is evil? That God must be a sadist, all feeling is a form of suffering, even all love is manipulation... would you go to a psychiatrist about that? How often does one get mistaken for the other? Or is it an arbitrary distinction? Is somebody's morbidity a legit philosophical perspective? Or do they need some prozac? Is medicine a legit replacement for gurus and priests?
  2. I've been informed that my message receiving ability doesn't exist , and I can't find any messaging functionality, or a place to report the error because I can't initiate messaging to get told I can't send a message, so this message is here instead.
