“His response was to fight it with the only weapons at hand—passive resistance and open displays of contempt.” ― Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan
The tragic suicide of Robin Williams is a case study in how poorly people, and the things of people are misunderstood. The fraud of psychology, interacting with both patients and mass media is exposed as the heir to mentalism that it is, while hard science and chemistry are again revealed to be the only sciences that matter.
The loving wife of Robin Williams heroically vindicates the discrediting smear that he was a ‘coward who took his own life.’http://m.neurology.org/content/87/13/1308.full
“I was driven to learn everything I could about this disease that I finally had the name of. Some of what I learned surprised me.
One neuropathologist described LBD and PD as being at opposite ends of a disease spectrum. That spectrum is based on something they share in common: the presence of Lewy bodies—the unnatural clumping of the normal protein, α-synuclein, within brain neurons. I was also surprised to learn that a person is diagnosed with LBD vs PD depending on which symptoms present first.
After months and months, I was finally able to be specific about Robin’s disease. Clinically he had PD, but pathologically he had diffuse LBD. The predominant symptoms Robin had were not physical—the pathology more than backed that up. However you look at it—the presence of Lewy bodies took his life.”
