I dunno, article's not bad. Cotard's delusion is wild, probably even wilder than the Capgras delusion or Anosagnosics.

You know what else is wild? Reverse psychology for the WIN!

So you... don't actually think the article's interesting? So confused.

I wonder if the water in the ear trick works on Cotard's.

Okay that was a left field guess for Benquo. I don't think of sphincters as using hyperlinks.

2: What they found was shocking: metabolic activity across large areas of the frontal and parietal brain regions were those of a smugly satisfied person.

Sphincters usually just dump the url into the plain text, as in www.sphincterworld.com.

They probably think this thread is about them.

I had a friend who got Capgras, though I never interacted with him while he had it (it's been totally cured).

That is the most creepy damn thing I have read in years. I have a feeling I'm going to have bad dreams along these lines for ages.

It is creepy! My favorite part is the word 'that' in ""I don't feel that brain-dead any more."

I remember reading of one subtype in which someone thinks their head is alive but their body is dead - or that it's someone else's body onto which their head has been sewn.

What if you think your sphincter is dead, or doesn't belong to you? Or somebody's stolen your sphincter and replaced it with an imposter? Or you have had your sphincter amputated and still feel sphincter pain? Or you lose the ability to recognize your sphincter in a mirror?
