For the last couple of weeks I have been looking up information about the mental illness, schizophrenia for a research project for my psychology class. During my research I found an interesting project that some scientists had put together called, “What Schizophrenia Sounds Like.” After interviewing many people with this illness the scientists compiled a short clip of what a schizophrenic might hear during an episode, or just day to day. I listened to this from my laptop speakers, not the recommended head phone approach (Which I’m glad that I did!) When I pressed play on this sound clip I instantly got chills and had to turn down the volume before proceeding. Honestly, it creeped me out to the point where I had to turn something funny on the TV to keep from weirding myself out. This sound clip really is interesting. Have a listen!
I have always been really intrigued as to what the sensation or what it physically is like to be schizophrenic. The hallucinations, voices, etc…..If this is truly anything like what it really is like….
This is extremely wierd, and makes you feel like you should just crawl in a hole and die.
“With my feet upon the ground I lose myself between the sounds, and open wide to suck it in. I feel it move across my skin. I’m reaching up and reaching out. I’m reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me. And following our will and wind we may just go where no one’s been. We’ll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one’s been.”—Lateralus - Tool (via mariabaria)
