[Question] How does serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder, manefest in relationship to Roles and Overleaves? Are they caused by the Overleaves or are the Overleaves masked by the illness, until the illness is successfully treated?
[Michael Entity] No “mental illness” is caused by the Overleaves themselves, but understanding the Overleaves can help one to manage “mental illnesses.” Most breakdowns in Personality however, when not due to any physical damage or developmental distortions, are usually Centering issues.
[Comment] I am going on the research that says these are physical illness.

[BradburySE] I feel like I’m starting to notice the effect of this more and more lately in people around me and I’d like to see if my perceptions are valid. I would like to ask about the nature of sub-personalities. Are they something all of us have and carry within us; parts of our current personalities? Or are they negative influences that exist independent of a fragment? Are they parts of past-life personalities, or some astral fragment?
[M Entity] Specifically-defined, a Sub-Personality is one facet of the Whole Personality that is usually unconsciously designated for specific management of specific feelings, situations, relationships, etc.
