Hallucinatory 'voices' shaped by local culture, Stanford anthropologist says

this is fascinating like WHOA!

http://news.stanford.edu/news/2014/july/voices-culture-luhrmann-071614.html

my gut suggests that a huge part of the negative experience in the US with voices is due to the stigma and demonisation of schizophrenia (and those who have it) (and anything else that includes hearing voices) in the US, which...wow.

if i had voices, i'd MUCH rather experience them as playful and benign.

yet another call for NOT teaching people implicitly that they're broken and what they experience is "bad", imnsho
