Abstract

The point around which the present
argument hinges is the word illusion. By
illusion is meant any error of sense,
perception, memory, or representation, or
of judgment based upon these which
counterfeits reality.
The only way to distinguish any
form of illusion would be to dispel the
conditions unfavorable to the manifestations
of healthy concepts.
It ought to be strongly impressed that
there is no well marked line between the
sane and the insane, and scarcely any
where illusion is concerned, apart from
its permanency.
