I suspect that the disease is manifest due to / as perception of scale which is beyond and above the bounds of the ordinary and the commonplace. Think of ants. I do not feel that humans fit into their sense of scale and proportion. We are cosmic happenings for them. Maybe even natural calamities. But not essential features of the aforementioned sense. Similarly so for picking up patterns. If you transgress the bounds of what is constrained for you, naturally, you end up as I am. Your sense of scale of the ordinary, and the commonplace, is distorted.
