Keywords: mental illness, consciousness, one-sided surface


Background. An attempt was made in the paper to answer the question whether mental illness, drug- or alcohol-induced intoxication, sleep, and hypnosis have anything in common. It was hypothesized that these may be similar states of the same consciousness.

Conclusions. In these states we deal with a more general case of brain activity that cannot be described, because appropriate tools are lacking. The latter can be sought for on the grounds of physics and mathematics.
