Schizoid personalities

 Here I want to talk about schizoid tendencies and Sapolsky and over interest in religious matters that indicate schizoid tendencies. There is I think an important distinction between normal interest in the metaphysical meaning of life, the universe and everything else. But there is a dividing line that when one crosses it, there is no going back. It is where the religious interest becomes all consuming. To Sapolsky this is biological. That mean in theory it can be cured. What I have suggested is that there is such a thing as a psychological disorder that is not biological and also a spiritual illness which is not psychological.
The correction of the spiritual illness I suggest is learning Gemara and Musar. [Gemara refers to the two Talmuds.] I do not accept the idea that Gemara is a conspiracy against the Torah. It is a rigorous account of how to go about keeping the Torah.

The problem with the cult that the Gra signed the  excommunication on is they take a schizoid personality obsessed with ritual and obsession with  sex [love and hatred of such] and make them into their leader and idol.
(Hyper-graphia, hatred of new things.)

Organized schizophrenia.
