Sufficiently sophisticated insights into the function and structure of this world are effectively indistinguishable from insanity. In this regard, a profoundly delusional mind is as often aligned with genius as it is with utter absurdity.
Questions we might ask here are as to the profound and natural orientation of extreme creativity towards alienation and isolation. Is psychological and cultural dissonance actually located in or demonstrative of a brilliant mind or is it the only way in which the world effectively plays itself, against itself, through an individual?
Madness is in this sense not weakness, it is strength – to bear (any) burden of difference is a Sisyphean journey. Not all insanity represents brilliance but the outer limits of brilliance must always resemble insanity; initially, at least.
