Cognitive Illusions

Just as your unconscious visual processing wetware can be fooled by optical illusions, so can other unconscious processing in your brain be fooled by cognitive illusions. Serious illusions include paranoia (that you are so important the entire universe is dedicating itself to making your life miserable), imagining a voice in your head is a deity that must be obeyed and a delusion that you have the power to fly. A common less serious illusion is believing that if other people are behaving in an unusual way it must be something ,you did. Statistically, most of the time, it will not be you. In summary, it is not always about you.
