Voices in the Head

Lots of people have them – lots more than the Ivory Tower thinks
It’s whether to listen and how to manage them that are the real questions
They are extensions of thought – manifestations of ideas and perspectives
All someone is who listens to them is introspective

But beware – different perspectives can shatter a human mind
A human who attempts to reconcile these perspectives is doomed to fail
A human who attempts to enslave these perspectives is doomed to be a slavemaster

So what do we tell these people who struggle with reconciliation?
Or who struggle for their soul as they willfully enslave?
Do we tell them that there is something wrong with them?
That there is something wrong with having voices in the head?
Do we give them pills so that they no longer hear the voices?
No longer hear their own ideas and perspectives?
Why don’t we teach them how to listen, how to ignore, how to evaluate?
Why don’t we teach them how to think, how to live, how to learn?
When will the Ivory Tower be put on trial?
