Voice Hearers

For those diagnosed with schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder

Possible origins of the voices heard by voice hearers

Here are some possible origins of the voices heard by voice-hearers or people who have schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder.

1. Subconscious mind

This is the cause most believed by psychiatry departments. Is Schizophrenia a Disorder of Consciousness?

2. External radio signals

This is a cause often believed by the experiencers of voice-hearing. The question is: why do only some people hear voices and not others if they are caused by radio signals?

3. Spiritual sources

A common experience of voice-hearers is to attribute the voices to angels, demons, or spiritual sources. This can be debilitating or inspiring, depending on if you believe the source if good or evil. Psychosis or Spiritual Emergence?

4. Future technology

The voices I hear sometimes imply they have been sent from the future back into the present. It would be virtually impossible to prove this, I believe.

5. Alien technology

Some voice-hearers believe in the possibility of alien civilisations being involved in the voices we hear.

Delusions of Technical Alien Control.
