The first time I saw psychosis was in my adored friend Arnold, who
seemed to be balanced and very clever. He was 23 years old when he
suddenly started to hit his sisters and break everything in his
bedroom. Subsequently, he underwent electroshock therapy.
in Greece after I spent 6 months in the USA. When I came back to
Brazil, I saw him in a clinic. He had lost his conscience forever.
This case shocked me very much! I didn't' follow the development
of his psychological disease, and when I came back to my country
meeting him was the worse meeting of my life!
Arnold was treated by a psychiatrist for 5 years and after this
period, he committed suicide by jumping from his 14th floor
apartment. At this time, I was in Greece studying the meaning of
the dreams according to the method of the psychiatrist
On the day that he committed suicide, I dreamt of seeing the Earth
from a distance and a voice told me that someone was looking for
the elixir of life.
He couldn't find it though...
I continued Carl Jung's research into the unknown region of the
human psychic sphere through dream interpretation and discovered
the anti-conscience, the primitive, wild and evil
that has not transformed like the human conscience and tries to
provoke craziness to the human conscience.
On 1989 I met a young lady who was
psychotic; she was a
friend's niece. She suffered this psychosis for 20 years and was
not as young as she appeared to be. In the beginning she was very
aggressive with me, but later she started to accept me because she
was my son's friend.
She would come to her uncle's house where my son and I were
spending the summer vacations and play with him like a kid with
the ball, fall in the floor and behave as if she was only 5 years
old like my son.
With time, she became my friend, but she never talked with me
about anything serious. Only after 6 years, she opened her heart
to me and told me what had happened with her in the past that was
responsible for her psychic disease.
I wrote 2 poems for her, explaining my conclusions after
examining the content of the human psychic sphere and after
learning the wisdom of the unconscious (These are the two first
poems of my ebook Wisdom). The unconscious produces the dreams in
order to cure us from the craziness we already inherit in our
psychic sphere, since the biggest part of it belongs to our wild
Four years later, after the psychotherapy I provided her, she
was much better and she travelled with my son and me to Brazil. It
was the first time in her life that she dared to go so far without
being accompanied by her parents. Of course, we had her uncle's
support, since he is Greek and often visits Greece, although he
lives in Brazil. He helped us a lot!
However, I can say that my psychotic friend didn't provoke any
problems for me. Her behaviour during this trip was excellent! I
realized that if she would live with me and have my guidance I
would perhaps be able to cure her completely...
However, when she came back to Greece, to her usual life, she
started behaving as she did before and I couldn't be responsible
for her, she had to continue living with her parents.
She is much better now, but not as much as she could be if she
received the proper guidance all the time. At least she has a
behaviour according to her age and she is able to work and talk
normally with anyone when she wants to.
My conclusions after 13 years of treating her were very
important and the result I observed in her personality is very
Psychotic patients can be cured and their human conscience can
be partially resurrected while schizophrenic patients cannot
recuperate any part of their human conscience once they lose it.
Schizophrenic patients can only be able to understand the meaning
of their actions, without human sensitivity.
