They used to call them mystics. Now it's people that sort of don't fit in with the masses. People that see through the delusions the masses walk around in. They are the ones with the power-tread carefully. True schizophrenia by their own definition is way bad weird stuff, but there is a pop trend to label lots of people that simply because they don't fit the description of average bla, bla, bla, bla....

Look in the DSM-4, it's a bit reassuring to not recognize yourself therein. But they are getting to where they don't even follow their own criteria.
