End of Year: Unusual Joy or Schizophrenic Delirium?

Similar to a schizophrenic outbreak, the transition to a new year is associated with a disorder of almost psychotic characteristics, as people suffer changes in their judgment about reality (the paradigm shift caused by the new year that is beginning), under the form of delusions caused by changes in his sense of perception.

This seems to be due to a collective catharsis (purification and sublimation of the soul through the ritual of forced change), in which people try to assume a state of exacerbated joy in a situation that is idealized by all as the beginning of a new auspicious cycle.

According to the experts, this state, when prolonged, can gradually restrict the personal lives of its participants who start to have difficulty in relating with each other, because they see, hear, and believe in things that do not exist.

The exaggerated fixation by this emotional content can prevent the person from having the perception of what happens globally (around him), leaving him imprisoned internally.

This closure can be associated with a critical and disturbing state that can generate the feeling of something more serious or dangerous.

Therefore, the end of a year and the beginning of a new one must be carefully planned and experienced, yes, as a desirable and renewing situation, but taking into account a certain predisposition to anomalous and/or behavioral occurrences that are peculiar to it.
