OR, if you do not make them up, you are reporting someone else's delusions as your own; a sort of psycho-plagiarism, appropriating unreality from others and then mis-owning it. Interesting case study could be made of it, I suppose. Reminds me of an old Punch joke:

"It's these damn butterflies, doctor!! They're all over me!!"

"Vell, don't brusch dem off on ME!!"

I wonder if that might be the secret of deeply persistant patterns of aberration? Obviously the right ownership of a viewpoint is part of the truth about it, so if you have deep-seated packages of thoughts and pictures you have misappropriated from others -- parents, the dogcatcher, babysitters, whatever--it would be really hard to get to a clear understanding of them.
