Abstract

In the seizure itself, in the psychosis which may develop, and in other verbal and non-verbal aspects of behavior the patient conceptualizes himself and his problems at different levels of interaction in the environment. The level of interaction is determined by the degree of stresses and/or the particular milieu of brain function. The content of the symbols or language that he uses is that which gives his experience the greatest and most vivid feelings of reality. All symbols take on form and meaning by reason of their place in a pattern of social relatedness and in the disturbance of consciousness associated with the seizure we become unaware of the patterning processes of language, how in language we selectively classify the environment and identify ourselves with cultural values.
