All these views are true, lies, or biased for many reasons and the mind has trouble differentiating them. It's like an endless loop that if not corrected by finding the truth will cause the person no end of problems.
That is part of it. What I'm basically trying to say is that the universe itself may be split between opposing viewpoints, that it is not simply limited to the brain of the patient or the psychiatrist, that the actual universe has a portion of itself caught up in a dualism and that the mental illness prevalent is a symptom of those who get caught in this tension between opposing ideas and have not placed themselves above it.
