Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"One half the world laughs at the other, and fools are they all"
““For there is not a single human being, not even the primitive
Negro, not even the idiot, who is so conveniently simple that his
being can be explained as the sum of two or three principal
elements; and to explain so complex a man as Haller by the artless
division into wold and man is a hopelessly childish attempt. Harry
consists of a hundred or a thousand selves, not of two. His life
oscillates, as everyone's does, not merely between two poles, such
as the body and the spirit, the saint and the sinner, but between
thousand and thousands.... The separation of the unity of the
personality into these numerous pieces passes for madness. Science
has invented the name schizomania for it. Science is in this so far
right as no multiplicity maybe dealt with unless there be a series,
a certain order and grouping. It is wrong insofar as it holds that
one only and binding lifelong order is possible for the
multiplicity of subordinate selves. This error of science has many
unpleasant consequences, and the single advantage of simplifying
the work of the state-appointed pastors and masters and saving them
the labors of original thought. In consequence of this error many
persons pass for normal, and indeed for highly valuable members of
society, who are incurably mad; and many, on the other hand, are
looked upon as mad who are geniuses...This is the art of life. You
may yourself as an artist develop the game of your life and lend it
animation. You may complicate and enrich it as you please. It lies
in your hands. Just as madness, in a higher sense, is the beginning
of all wisdom, so is schizomania the beginning of all art and all
― Hermann Hesse, Steppenwolf
