just a laugh
    #1808433 - 08/13/03 07:31 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

something I realised the other night that gave me and my friends quite a chuckle :

As a society we measure our sanity against something that doesn't really exist, normality !

way to go humanity, we surely would be the only race to measure sanity against something that doesn't exist and then claim those that believe in something that can't be proven real, crazy !!!

Yes, the ignorant like to remain ignorant... thoughts hurt, too.
Peace.

Yeap, i know what you mean. I wouldn't use the word normal but normalized. Anyway, at the end it's the same thing...

Normality does exist... it is defined as the average saneness/behavior of all people. Insanity is simply a sample that lies too far from the mean (average).

IQ works the same way. An IQ of 100 is the normalized average of the population.

This calibrating of IQ scores so 100 always is the average makes it difficult to see changing trends in a population's IQ. But I remember reading somewhere about some researcher who tested people with IQ tests that were used 50 years ago, and found that today's average on those tests is about 115 instead of 100. Hard to believe, isn't it? :laugh:  But it sounds hopeful for the future.

The real funny thing is the reason why most people go crazy is the fear of going crazy...

Its true that you become what you resist in many cases.
