Consciousness reinstated using the certainty principle--a better mental health strategy.
ABSTRACT The statistical probability that six consecutive carbon double-bonds will all be 'cis' is less than chance (p < 0.02). The chances of all-cis-docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) recurring in quantity over geological time is infinitesimal. Since such intriguing considerations are scrupulously eliminated from orthodox conceptualisations, a refurbished Occam's razor--the Certainty Principle--is offered as a responsible pragmatic guide. Six indelible flaws in our ways of knowing precedes a psychiatry that is immediately understandable, self-evident and effective, here supported by objective evidence from prison data. The only realistic antidote to our lethal global psychiatric epidemic is reinstating consciousness and its wellbeing.
