"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

Here is where the "mental disorder" evinces itself abundantly

Here is an extraordinary title for a recent paper published by Neuron: Neuroeconomic Approaches to Mental Disorders. I am simply thunderstruck by the level of post modern absurdity: " This review surveys the recent and productive application of game-theoretic probes (economic games) to mental disorders" 

Wow...judging a mental disorder by the metric of what any sane person properly views as a mental disorder. Well I guess such turgid gobbledygook pawned off as science is to be expected with an ever increasing frequency so long as Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether are running the asylum.
