I realize this is a pretty sensitive subject, but I've seen it touched on in other threads and thought it could be expanded (basically I'm just curious, and I want to know if anyoen feels the way I do). It's kind of hard to put into words, but I'll try, and I hope nobody will find anything offensive in this thread! Lots of people on this forum see their dolls as beautiful pieces of plastic and nothing more. Others on the opposite end of the spectrum have strong bonds with their dolls, even believing they have souls. (I'm not saying either of these views are wrong, by the way.) But is there a line between imagining a personality for their dolls, and actually believing that their doll is a separate, sentient entity? In other words, if there's a spectrum between pretending the doll is real, and actually thinking the doll really is real, at what point does imagination become psychosis? Because I really think we've all crossed the line at some point. Now, where do you draw the line between imagination and psychosis? Mods, as ever, if this is unsuitable for whatever reason, please delete! Thank you. EDIT: This is a HYPOTHETICAL thread. I'm not crazy, and I'm not asking you whether you think I'm crazy. Just tell me where YOU think normal imaginatin stops, and worrying behaviour begins. also- I'm taking psychosis to mean what my psychology tutor told me it meant- an inability to distinguish reality from fantasy. A symptom, not some kind of disease.
