Is it just me, or are crazy mental people on the rise in society??
Ok I live a ferry ride away from Vancouver. For years we head over to the city for shopping and appointments on average once every couple of months. I do not drive and take transit everywhere.

Well the last few times I have been to Vancouver, this week twice, I have encountered more mental people in public than ever in my entire life!!

Sitting on the bus and seeing a man twitching out in a seat nearby and then talking to himself about Hitler very rapidly. Another man on the ferry talking to his hand in a very animated way and every now and then telling his hand to SETTLE DOWN and smacking it and then saying sorry my dear. Seeing a man lurch around us as we sat by the waterfront dragging his leg and drooling and then yelling at his leg to hurry up idiot!
A woman kept asking us with excitement if we liked peaches while we were on transit, over and over, like every 5 minutes. And then at a bus stop a man kept raising his hands to the sky and saying WHAT? WHAT? and then punching himself and doing it all over again.

And there are more...but that was just this week! What is going on???

I seriously have never seen anything like this in my whole life and have been to the city loads...how could I have missed all of this/

And like I said for the past few months I have seen a variety of things like this but this week was on a massive increase...

Yes, they are called sheeple and they follow psychopaths.

You may know them as your friends and family.

it's what happens when people are left to their own devices and have the ability to simply stay at home, not work, and be socially isolated... no measuring stick by which to measure themselves and weed out strange behavior. Tends to happen to guys 'in their mom's basement' and middle aged overweight women supported by their husband's income.

Even normals with active social lives can have strange personalities, but more due to impulsiveness and high testosterone levels craving the need for excitement.

Public transport should be avoided, at all costs.

It's full of dysfunctional nutters, who might stab you, or blow AIDS-infected snot on you, at any given moment.

This doesn't occur with me, because I drive a nice, plutocratic Mercedes sedan (a Diesel model, natch - I do care for Gaia!), to wherever I need to go, and return from!

end of days.

(and all women supported on husband's income are not nuts, I would be one of the normal ones).

to many processed foods, drugs, tooth fillings, refined sugar, white bread, cell phone waves, tv brainwashing, bad families, bad doctors, no church, no God, no hope.

I think it has to do with the cuts in funding mental hospitals. There are fewer of them, yet no reduction in the number of people who need them...hence we have them out in the general public.

Services for the mentally ill are probably dwindling. Also, during these unsettling times in society I believe the mentally ill are very sensitive to the energies.

IMO You're simply becoming more aware. Your consciousness level is rising.

What is your diet and health like?

I ask because I want to know if people with certain diets and on any meds are held back from being consciously aware.

If you don't want to answer because you feel it is private info, then I understand, but I would really like to know if certain diets and being totally med free help.

Re: Is it just me, or are crazy mental people on the rise in society??
Firstly, no not Hastings Street...haha. :) It just has been randomly happening everywhere, mostly on or around public transit but honestly I have taken transit for years and never encountered this level of mentalness.

I have become a gluten free vegan this past year and trying to eat a more natural, chemical-free and processed-free diet and trying to heal my thyroid condition naturally which is slowly working.

I do think I have become more aware of so many things in the past couple of years but I am a person who avidly people-watches and would have noticed strange mental behaviours such as these if they had been happening so much in the past...

I sort of feel something is up...something is coming to a head in our world and might be a good time to lay low and stay the hell out of the cities...

It certainly seems that there is an increasing amount of crazy people. I'm not 100% sure what the reason for this is...but I certainly think the complexities of modern society are at least part of the reason. We still have a lot of caveman DNA, but we're forced to live in a civilized society...It's very difficult for some people to adjust...it defies their primal instincts. Some people are more evolved than others.

Another theory is stress... Stress can do crazy things to people. It was a simpler time 100 years ago.
