Let's look at the definition of paranoid, here’s how it's defined in Wikipedia–
Paranoia /ˌpærəˈnɔɪə/ (adjective: paranoid /ˈpærənɔɪd/) is a thought process believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of irrationality and delusion. Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs, or beliefs of conspiracy concerning a perceived threat towards oneself. (e.g. "Everyone is out to get me.") Making false accusations and the general distrust of others also frequently accompany paranoia. For example, an incident most people would view as an accident or coincidence, a paranoid person might believe was intentional.
What’s interesting is that last sentence, because it would imply that it’s only a few people that are paranoid and that most are not, yet it’s really actually that Everyone is paranoid, and a few are just the extreme cases. Because most people have ‘thought process believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of irrationality and delusion’. Certainly media has portrayed ‘paranoid’ individuals, like conspiracy theorists for example, ‘tin-foil hat wearers’, ‘crazies’ that say over and over ‘they’re coming to get me, they’re coming to get me’ – yet this is really just one context of paranoia and is at a advanced stage where the paraNoise in the person’s mind has now taken over completely and they’ve become that paranoia in not just thought but in their very behaviour in what they speak and how they act..
Yet this is no different from everyone else, because we have become our mind to such an extent that we just listen to the para-noise as the thoughts in our mind, and we live them out in reality, in our words we speak, and in our behaviour, in what we do, and what we accept and allow in this world. I mean – have a look around – is this the sort of world that beings free from paranoia would create? A world where we are slaves to money and where the majority is in poverty? Where crime is rampant? Where wars are waged – where we actually kill each other, for any reason whatsoever, is this the acts of a species that is free from paranoia? Obviously not, obviously the opposite.
The media shows such limited presentations of what a ‘Paranoid person’ apparently is/looks like, so you won’t recognize paranoia for what it is at every level, in all contexts, and thus that you are in fact paranoid if you think and are influenced by your thoughts, because if you realized that, you might be able to do something about it. And if you weren’t paranoid – that is, able to be influenced by thoughts to irrationality, your behaviour wouldn’t be so controllable and predictable.
Because paranoia has been used to manipulate human behavior. And for an in-depth, eye-opening account of how this has been done and is done, read or listen to the audiobook ‘The Shock Doctrine’ by Naomi Klein and/or watch the documentary adaptation of the book: The Shock Doctrine. So there are those who would take advantage and utilize paranoia through propaganda and media to instil fears in the minds of people to take over their reasoning, and this is how wars have been accepted, how poverty and starvation has been justified, and all the atrocities that take place in the world today, that we accept and allow to take place, because they wouldn’t be happening if we didn’t accept it, and we wouldn’t accept it, if it wasn’t for para-Noise that’s been implanted into our minds that we’ve given in to, because our minds and our focus and attention is then focused on the Paranoise propaganda in our minds, instead of seeing in reality the consequences that we’re creating and allowing to take place.
So in this, you can see that Paranoia takes many forms, it is not just some ‘crazy’ in a tin foil hat who thinks they are going to be beamed up to the mother ship by sinister aliens.. Paranoia is the thoughts that we give value to, the beliefs, feelings, emotions, reactions, internal conversations that takes place in our minds that we allow to be the directive principle of who we are, how we act, how we speak, and what we’ll allow in the world and in our lives. It’s the ParaNoise that leads to Paranormal activity, where we act irrationally instead of sticking to common sense as living according to what is best for everyone.
