But they were all deceived (the many disciplines of medicine) for in secret a ring was forged to rule all the others (psychiatry's mind/body blather)* The one ring would like to rule all the others by infiltrating and making it's goals the goals of all the others (it has been somewhat effective in neurology to date). Whatever discipline has even a single patient who's diagnosis cannot be pinned down with certainty psychiatry will claim them for it's own. Psychiatry was a somewhat maligned discipline with a poor performance record. Someone took that quite personally and so here we are. Psychiatry will rule supreme. Muhahahah. *the mind/body dichotomy/non-dichotomy is a non issue. The brain and body are the same thing and how our body processes data as mind is an as yet mostly undiscovered country and there is little to opine about with any certainty IMO. And this is exactly why they use the concept. It can mean anything they like and change with the weather.
