nice thoughts. i remember joseph campbell talking about schizophrenia being a common element among shamans. almost sounded like you canít become a shaman unless you have a full episode and manage to make it back out. something like that.

that ego death thing amongst schizophrenics is a fascinating issue... i am going to have to give that a lot of attention some day.
