Channel: The Angel Effect
A 9/11 survivor, an astronaut and a sea diver - each felt a mysterious presence that guided them to safety in their time of greatest peril.
I am hypothesizing that schizophrenics perceive or encounter a stressful situation and it activates this effect. The perceived entity eventually becomes a 'personality' or a perceived entity that takes control. Also, the advice given and actions performed eventually may become separate 'personalities'. Schizophrenia may be a result of an over reactive stress reaction causing this phenomenon or, in cases of actual abuse, an adaptive outcome of this neural function.
