"People with schizophrenia can have difficulty thinking logically and telling the difference between real and unreal experiences, and may engage in bizarre behavior."

Regarding the above quote it is important to note most humans have difficulty thinking logically, they cannot tell the difference between real and unreal experiences, and their behavior is often bizarre. Consider the end of world, the Mayan calendar due to planet Nibiru, or the Rapture date by Harold Camping. People often mistake an actor's character for actually being the real personality of the actor. People often confuse the real and the unreal. I have heard that over 50% of Americans believe the Earth is between 5,000 and 10,000 years old. They don't believe evolution is real.

Yes there are genetic differences between brains but maybe Schizophrenics are merely One Eyed Kings in The Country of the Blind.

R D Laing in the Politics of Experience (and in the Divided Self if my memory serves me correctly) described Schizophrenia as a mystical journey (a positive process of profound enlightenment) not a disease, but via a Self Fulfilling Prophecy people have been conditioned to think Schizophrenia is bad. Studies have proven alcohol does not make people aggressive, it is all about what people expect will happen: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-15265317

The "abnormality" of Schizophrenics is due to societal expectations.

I think Schizophrenics are merely scapegoats for the mass psychosis afflicting so-called "normal" people.
