What schizophrenics hear in their head depends on the culture in which they live. In the western world voices are mostly threatening and evil, in India and Africa friendly to divine. Read more:

When one reads the news of today then one could think the Europeans and the Americans are all schizophrenics. They want to wage war against Russia. It seems to have now clearly emerged today that they follow Obama in a body and are steering towards a worldwide conflict. Obama succeeded causing conflict in the Ukraine and this fire now seems to be already worldwide.

The Americans and the Europeans are perhaps the people in the world who are spiritually depraved more than the rest and have now been completely caught by Antichrist.

And this tendency will probably spread further.

For years the Europeans and the Americans give development aid. They go for instance to Africa to bring their far developed materialism to the Africans who are still undeveloped in materialism and to bless them with it.

And the people in Africa get impressed by this and think of giving up their still existing spirituality and to now degenerate as well.

The materialist think to hear from spirits is to be schizophrenic.

Spiritual people consider the hearing of the voice of the spirit as a high level of development: The sounding divine voice and Hearing Godís voice.

Voices in the head: Aggressive in the USA, divine in Africa

Hallucinations: Voices in the head are often symptoms of schizophrenia

What schizophrenics hear in their head depends on the culture in which they live. In the western world voices are mostly threatening and evil, in India and Africa friendly to divine.

Schizophrenia changes the thinking, perception and behaviour.

What the voices in the head say and how they do it strongly depends on the culture in which the person concerned lives, the study shows. In western circles of culture like the USA patients therefore hear clearly more threatening voices than people in Africa or India.

Of 10,000 people in average one gets schizophrenia annually. It is a matter of a severe psychic illness, which is treated with medication and therapy Ė also to bring hallucinations, like voices in the head, under control. The influence of culture upon the development of the illness is up to now fundamentally overlooked, says Tanya Luhrmann of the Stanford University in California. The dealings with hallucinations in other cultures possibly even offer a chance for persons concerned in Europe and the USA.

Luhrmann and colleagues had at the time questioned 20 persons with symptoms of schizophrenia from USA, India and Ghana, who regularly hear voices. The researchers registered how many different voices the persons concerned perceived and how often. Also what the people heard was analysed and what lead to the hallucinations out of the point of view of the patients.

The questioned Americans often tried to explain their illness about a trauma or genetic causes. And they often perceived the voices more brutal than the persons concerned from Ghana and India. An American described his voices would call upon him to cruel actions, for instance to gouge an eye out of men. Five of the 20 US-Americans also reported, their voices would appeal to them for war. Who spoke the Americas could mostly not exactly determine.

In India and Ghana by comparison the people had often a very personal relationship to their voices. 11 of 20 Indians believed to hear relatives. "They speak as if an older person would give an advice to a younger", recounted a person concerned. One perceived the instruction as playful or magic. Only few saw them as medical or psychic problems.

Also in Ghana the interviewed only spoke in isolated cases of an illness at all. There it belongs to the culture that bodiless spirits can speak. 10 of the 20 patients perceived the voices positive, 16 were convinced of having heard God, Luhrmann and colleagues reported in the specialist magazine "British Journal of Psychiatry".

The differences could come into being through the different self-images in western, Asiatic and African cultures, believes Luhrmann.

The researchers had followed the question, when voices in the head are pathological at all.

Good voices are soft and appeared controllable.
