      Well I can answer any specific questions if you have any.

      My theory on schizophrenia, specifically the explanation for hallucinations, is that when hallucinating, you're basically perceiving reality with the "dreaming" mind. (Different Brain frequency, schemas, etc).

      Schizophrenia is an umbrella term in psychology to cover a wide range of mental illness. It's ascribed to anything where thought process and emotional responsiveness is disintegrated. This includes dissociation, hallucination, delusion and disorganized speech and thought process. It's hard to speak generally on the subject because cases vary greatly. They do dream very vividly though, I heard.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      I know someone who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. He and I used to get into long arguments on MSN. I knew it was stupid to try to argue with him logically, but I'm stubborn and can't let things go. He stopped talking to me a few months ago because he thought someone else had taken over my MSN account to spy on him. : / Haven't heard much from him lately and I don't know what to do for him.
