I ague his work gives a good description of a psychotic episode

http://www.scribd.com...

the work takes us into the mind and experience of psychosis
example
"rhapsodic melodies of aural delicacies which washed o"er my flesh
tones lights touches creates tumultuous avalanches of interweaving synesthesias resonating synergisms of overabundant sensations melting into thoughts of ecstatic revelations of infinite syntonic blisss"

Jeez. How many times do I have to clarify basic debating rules.

Let me spell it out.

THE BURDEN OF PROOF LIES WITH THE PERSON MAKING THE CLAIM, NOT WITH OTHERS TO DISPROVE.

Let me ask a question.
Do you think that a poem with
A) misspelled words
B) Letter sizes that jump all over the place
C) Poetry worse than the Vogon commander's
is a 'good description of a psychotic episode'?
NO.

reply
A) misspelled words-indicative of or symbolizing psychosis
B) Letter sizes that jump all over the place--indicative of or symbolizing psychosis
C) Poetry worse than the Vogon commander's-indicative of or symbolizing psychosis
is a 'good description of a psychotic episode'-yes they 'good description of a psychotic episode

you have missed the whole oint of the poem because you are trapped in notions of good English

thus i have given example of psychosis in the poem
plus
i have shown uses cons own arguments why this poem is a good description of a psychotic episode

Pro raises his game slightly.

Your answer to a: Yes, but I doubt very much that you, in fact misspelled the words on purpose.
Your answer to b: Yes, but that alone does not make it a GOOD description of psychosis.
Your answer to c: Bad poetry cannot portray psychosis WELL.

In summary, this is not a GOOD description of psychosis.
