Depression, as it turns out, of the longterm variety, is caused by chronic inflammation of the glial cells in response to ongoing cellular stress causing oxidization of the nervous system.
That’s as close to English as I can get it.
That’s not to say that depression doesn’t exist; its the exact opposite actually. It means that it is a physical illness caused by psychosocial difficulties causing the body to endure excess stress, and it causes mutation in the “soup”, if you will.
There is a lot of evidence to suggest that depression could be treated through deep brain stimulation through electrical impulses; I suggest that it can also be treated with binaural and isochronic beats and meditation and with light therapy to the retina with CoEnzymeQ10. I can’t, however, say how long the road back would be for any given individual, because the damage to the spinal tissue is a physical manifestation of spiritual pain.
In Hell, I learned that poetry could be used, literally, to calm the soul of a monster.
I have a theory that by stimulation of the parts of the memory which are keyed to early deep private pleasure, one can both improve working memory and treat chronic depression. I imagine this has a lot to do with the theory behind light treatment, although that also involves the optic nerves and the optic chiasm and all sorts of… Stuff.
