How much of your mind has to be lost before you don't know it?

Asked by josie (22947 points ) July 28th, 2012

The stories coming out of Aurora Colorado got me to thinking.
Psychotics, people with Azheimer’s disease, some people on Q and A sites on the Internet – I am sure there is a moment when they know that something is not quite right, but then at some further point they do not realize that there is a problem. Is there a way to express that tipping point in percentages? Does the moment where the corner is turned have a clinical name? What would you call it?

With various types of dementia, there are various stages of cognitive decline.

Maybe we should have some kind of simple cognitive-rational “logic locks” on the insides of our doors. If you can’t open the lock, you can’t go outside.
