This view is interesting for a second or two and then you realize that you can just exchange "reason" in the ultimate sense for "reason" in the personal sense and nothing really changes. There is no "Reason" for anything but there is reason for it. It's ultimately just semantics and not really a revelation.

I actually wondered something similar. Like if countries are using mental warfare on each other, are they hurting one another or just teaching the populous how to defend against it in the long run. I guess just like other organisms the strong cultures that can withstand the pressure survive and the weak are controlled or die off

I've read more on it and people's ability to process strong emotions(like people with bpd) but I'm having trouble finding it right now. Here's an article I'll post more if I find it:

Because of the nature of the illness it is very difficult to prove the relationship one way or the other. Because of this I would say the science is not clear on the issue but there are good theories both ways.

That's interesting I had read the opposite, well that the science behind the direct of the relationship was unclear, would you be able to point me to some research showing that there is no underlying difference in emotional processing before trauma between someone who ends up with PTSD and someone who doesn't?

Personally I think the relationship is backwards to what you are implying. It's not that trauma causes anxiety disorders it's that people with anxiety problems are more likely to develop PTSD when exposed to trauma.

Lots of people experience traumatic experiences without developing PTSD so it seems like a result of some underlying pre-existing problem.

>For a wealthy person, they have to have the introspection to say "i don't feel good, this doesn't feel right" in order to want to seek treatment. Poor people have more extrinsic measures of their mental health before they even get to the introspection stage.

This is a good point in that wealth can often hide disordered behaviour. Are you saying that more people with money are suffering the same symptoms but not having the same outcomes so they get missed?

I'd love to see something where all the body measurements are taken into account(Height, Weight, Arm length, Leg Length, Shoulder Width etc) so that people could use their dimensions to figure out which sport they would be most likely to go to the Olympics for based on their body type. I know it's not something that will happen I'm just dreaming.

I don't think we take in CO2 through our lungs. I might be wrong but I think it's just slowing down how much CO2 is breathed out and lowering the amount of oxygen taken in that increases CO2 in the blood back to regular levels. So slowing breathing is very similar to using a paper bag in how it works.

Well I think you don't understand how stats work. The post is about the cross section of chronic pain and suicidality in adolescents. The study you posted is about adult chronic pain.

None of those support what you said, so maybe just admit that you made a claim without evidence that was your opinion and then weirdly called me out for replying with my opinion. I'm arguing because you are being hypocritical and I just want to call it out rather than let it go.
