To all the OEN readers:  Every time you have a theory on what is happening in the world, please, check yourself against  the definition below. Let's stay sane!

…Paranoia is a delirium of interpretation. Each fact, event, force, observation is  caught in one system of speculation  and  “understood” by the afflicted individual in such a way that it absolutely confirms and reinforces his thesis- that is, the initial delusion that his point of departure. The paranoiac always   hits  the nail on the head, no matter where the hammer blows fall.

Just as   in a magnetic field metal molecules align themselves to exert a collective cumulative pull, so, through unstoppable systematic and in themselves strictly rational associations, the paranoiac turns the whole world into a magnetic field of facts, all pointing in the same direction: the one  he is going in.

The essence of paranoia is this intense- if distorted- relationship with the real world: “ The reality of  the external world is used for illustration and proof  to serve the reality of our mind..”

Paranoia is a shock of recognition that never   ends.
