If I act insane, act as in pretend to be insane like an actor, am I actually insane while I am, or am I just acting? This is not a rhetorical question, nor do I know the answer, it is a legitimate philosophical mystery for me.
I am, for whatever reason, fascinated by insanity. And just, general mental state differentiation I suppose. In stories and characters anyway. I have often thought up characters who are, in some way, in some severity, mentally unstable. And I tend to have in interest in characters who are. I don't know. Maybe it's just because it makes a more interesting character, and opens up many possibilities in a story. Maybe I'm just weird.
