Michael Crawford on Hearing Voices
. One of the folks who speaks from experience. Quote:
"Everyone has an inner voice that they talk to themselves with in their thoughts. Hearing voices is not like that. You can tell that your inner voice is your own thinking, that it's not something you're actually hearing someone saying. Auditory hallucinations sound like they're coming from "outside your head". Until you come to understand what they are, you cannot distinguish them from someone actually talking to you."

contributor Vitaly S. Alexius captures gripping images from the dead city where rusted shipping vessels are torn apart. Quote:
"There are places on our planet, which literally resemble hell on earth... a place that you’d think was conceived by minds of apocalyptic science fiction writers… but is however quite real…
A place, closed off to the tourists, a place where no photographers are allowed to go… and those that do, get their cameras taken away and arrested by the police…..
Today we shall travel to Bangladesh, Chittagong. Chittagong has a territory of 144 000 км² and population of 144 million people."
