Insanity By Alex, Ethan, Masha and Josh

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. -Albert einstein

Insanity is a mental illness that has taken its toll on many different victims. Nearly 20% of the U.S. population is diagnosed with insanity every year. Although, some cases may not be too severe, the gravity of this illness is quite severe itself.

There are different levels of insanity. One case could be highly severe while the other one could hardly notice. Either way, we should put into consideration one wrong move could change everything.

Insanity is having lost touch with reality and not orient in time and space. -Daniel J. Tomasulo

Insanity most of the time is not spontaneous in any way. Normally, there will be signs or change in attitude. Whenever one's normal behavior goes out of the norm, that is considered insanity. Below is an experience a Miss Eleanor Longden had with insanity.

Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity all it takes is a little push. -The Joker

Curing insanity in one is possible. Many people study insanity everyday trying to find new cures and such. In the movies, for example "One Flew Over A Cuckoo's Nest" they show how patients are treated. Although, it has changed, the way people were treated were like animals. Of course, at the time they were still trying to find cures for people.

Is this a dagger that I see before me with its handle turned to my hand? Come, let me grasp you I can’t get hold of you and yet I still see you. -Macbeth

Macbeth was a unique character. He represented insanity to another level. Although, Macbeth was not always like this. This was not genetic, this was developed by influence of others as we read. Macbeth was not intended to be this way.

There are signs we are in Macbeth. As explained in the podcast. When he began visualizing the dagger that was the beginning. As time went on the insanity only took a darker route.
