Borderline

Just like there are those born with impairments or deformities of the body, the same can also be true of the brain and even the mind.  For instance, those that suffer from borderline, bipolar, schizophrenia, clinical narcissism (and other redundantly labeled groupings of symptoms),  all suffer from occasional or persistent cognitive impairment tied to their mental faculty of judgement.   This means they are unable to discern right from wrong, is from isn’t,  or good from bad. This is why individuals such as these, when left to their own devices, will end up leading very self-destructive lives, because destruction is the natural order of things, just like falling down (and not up) is the nature of gravity. It is only out of healthy cognition and the ability to discern and judge clearly, that emerges cultural, moral and structural order.   It is only out of a healthy body, that one can stand, walk and run. Even in animals, healthy cognition is needed to promote physical and reproductive health. But these individuals, lack even that level of discernment.   Those that suffer from the inability to discern and judge, will ultimately prefer to slumber and vanish into darkness. The only hope they have is if they develop the ability to surrender and humble themselves before a loving care taker, should they have the good fortune to find such a one and sufficient cognition to enable themselves to do so.
