In order to take my approach further, I need to observe the situation of the psychotic.  Can it be characterized as a qualitatively different coupling between the SM relation and the ‘Environment’?  How is the environment to be characterized under this approach?  I need Barker-style notes of the situation of the psychotic.  Care and attention to all those variables that might constitute the environment of other P-worlds needs to be taken.  That means taking account of all media, right down to the electric light bulb. It means exploring the communicative modes or means of coupling: music, dance, touch, etc. Then one can work towards the goal of having enough of a description that one might consider a more specific perturbation than ECT or non-specific neurotransmitter modulation.
