In the best way I have only a brief overview about medical psychology so please bear with me if i put it simple. very simple.
If a person beliefs so strongly in anyhing that it dismisses everything contradictory in order to secure their own belief in which their mental/psychological bedrock is interwoven to, and that to an extend that everithing that person recognises gets twisted to fit in its framework.
Wouldn’t this be some sort of a reality-loss psychosis? And if this would be the case, shouldn’t be those people genuine consideret to be ill?
I guess its the question: Has the preservation of mental integrity a higher priority than the preception and cognition of reality?
Where is the crossing line that such a case has to be consideret an medical/psychological ilness/damage/malfunction?
Is cognitive inability to understand or ignoring and twisting of facts enough for that? - (example. extrem hardheaded religous people; hardcore conspiracy theorists flatearth,chemtrails etc.)
From my general understanding something is considret to be an medical ilness as soon as the natural function is compromised. And as long as the ilness is not endangering the basic lived life, its not really consideret a problem.
At which point does above mentioned case of reality-loss endanger basic humanely livestyle? And if it does, why don’t receive those people medical attention?
My inpression on that topic is that those extrem cases are indeed not consideret to be ill because the affects on the “livestyle” aren’t severe enough. Ergo no actions are taken.
I’m glad about someone with additional insight on that matter.
