Futuristic thoughts

Depression is not a mental illness. It is simply the manifestation of 'failure to self-actualise' by attaching importance to external agendas that ultimately collapse.

Is it though? I am not so sure. Do not renegade, some times overly produced hormones or chemicals cause and imbalance?
You are the Doctor not me but I thought depression, say after child birth, is often caused by imblance. No?

t's always nice having you around-including ur typos!
I'm no 'authority' on medicine as per say & rightly it has been proven that depression is a result of imbalanced neurotransmitters.
As a lover of Psychology I enjoy delving into the roots of entities & therein is the understanding of the 'growing' illness around the world. Lives are much 'colder' than they used to be & more & more people are falling under the dark clouds.
To some extent we all suffer but most people would not remember to feel 'sad' when they do what makes them happy, which means if we find inner peace, depression becomes extinct. So what was the depression about anyways? :)

Psychology fascinates me too. We are such wonderful 'machines' with brains capable of creating these PC's we sit at. In fact our brains are better than computers even if we struggle sometimes to recall all the data we have amassed. Having said that, conversely they are also so fragile.
Inner peace is something I search for. George Harrison (bless him), a Hindu by choice sought inner peace. I wish I could find it!

I do admit humans are incredible. Who could've thought a century ago there could be outer space experiences & interaction world-wide within seconds.

Inner peace is all about accomplishing your Emotional Goals. Without them you will never find satisfaction. An interesting saying was "Man desires those things that another wants". I don't know the quoter, but we need to break off this pattern & find ways to fulfil our personal needs irrespective of collective opinions.
