Schizophrenia — the dichotomous construct of unitary, discrete psychoses originated in 19th century German apologist psychiatry — arising in the fledgling German Emil Kraepelin; student of neuropathology and experimental psychology while relocated near western Saxony’s University of Leizpig under neo-Thomist Wilhelm Wundt’s — and, amorously, pop card factitously, credited the “founder” of civilized, post-Islamic Enlightenment; alongside Burton-era doctoring of madness, handed into private ownership of sects of the state and civilized repressive creed representative of recession into lumpenproletratiat agnosognosia cast into spiting Ceres and Sirius and the mentally primordial ocean floor — medical authority of the science, evolving; (I will not speculate social Darwinistic, at this time) as the man renounced himself submitting to his bipolaristic feat later described — ensouling of the Psyché.
Kraeplin’s famed work among experimentalist colleagues — Compendium der Psychiatrie: Zum Gebrauche für Studirende und Aertze (Compendium of Psychiatry: For the Use of Students and Physicians); published a first edition textbook in 1883, precursored Lehrbuch der Psychiatrie in 1893, and republished in subsequent editions to Ein Lehrbuch der Psychiatrie (A Texbook: Foundations of Psychiatry and Neuroscience) and, the sixth edition, 1899 epitome; a taxonomous proposal for differentiated “dementia praecox” separatizing the non-threshold schemes of Kraepelinian nosology entitizing manic depressive, clinical “insanity.”
Krapelin’s late predecessor, Karl Ludwig Kahlbaum, published a prostigious psychiatric nosology; albeit, disease classification system, whereas psychosis (versania typica) preceded Kraepelin’s bonafide unitary psychosis; also, dichotomously opposed Cartesian dualism and cathartic trial-and-error demonization in scripture for repentenance, whilst Kraeplin’s ephemeral youth, in 1863; Die Gruppierung der psychischen Krankheiten (The Classification of Psychiatric Diseases). Kahlbaum self-identifyingly aggravated himself in the already pale progressive felicity preformationism; mystifying, degenerative passage of the renouncing sufferer through clearly defined disease phases: a melancholic stage; a manic stage; a confusional stange; and finally, a Lucretian, praecoxic “dementia;” ephemeralization, stage.
We, thus, have arrived at the Kraepelinian dichotomy – the broad division of major mood and psychotic illness of adulthood into schizophrenia and ‘manic–depressive’ (bipolar) illness – enshrining the underlying functional systems of the brain; yet, heedlessly, dichotomously, almost Feminist theory essentialism opposed, and allegiant to unfruitfully inessential preformatism; in non-Westernized molecular biology, cognitive neuroscience and affective normal as well as abnormal inquiry of axial brain function. Interluding evolutionary theory: complexity in which high levels of anatomical and functional connectivity stack overflow and complicate at many increasing and decreasing interacting shelves; for which, quoting John McTaggart directly on adjoining A·B time series on plasticizing long-term and short-term determinists in environmental brain synthesis.
“… [Or] shall we say that one event M merges itself into another event N, while preserving a certain identity by means of an unchanged element, so that we can say, not merely that M has ceased and N begun, but that it is M which has become N? Still the same difficulty recurs. M and N may have a common element, but they are not the same event, or there would be no change. If therefore M changes into N at a certain moment, then, at that moment, M has ceased to be M, and N has begun to be N. But we have seen that no event can cease to be, or begin to be, itself, since it never ceases to have a place as itself in the B series. Thus one event cannot change into another.”

Let us, now, nearly consumate the “genetic-epigenetic” preformationist (1) hologram resurrected and dismembered in predisposition to epigenetic alterations which, are, a cathartic organism — an embyronal cart (epigenetic alternations which blatantly increase the risk for an object catharsis of schizophrenia) cellular locomoted fetalization of brain development and biosphere of the particular variants in a genome predisposing the momentarily conceived to epigenetic alternations (the conscientiousness; horse) which are converted into culturally capitalized stratification of private conglomerates; whom, pursue high-tech genetic interventions; subsuming, profiting net revenue, an additional billions of dollars amid, Fool’s Gold.
Persistent, Self-Transcending, relatively high Psychoticism inventory, are a slight wind bristling the hair on a sunlit goal post — blatantly, the metaphor of the executive genome preprogramming a “whack-a-mole capacity” (2) for incurable, stranded in the wilderness, “insanity” is nearly logically eponymous with theologian (yet, nor epynonymous with Calvinist Christianity) Damnable, unforgivable Sin and Blasphemy — once again, the Salvated fool’s gold — the Holy Spirit — is through a preformationist lens!
