Dietrich Fischer – TRANSCEND Media Service
A mental patient believed he was a mouse. His psychiatrist patiently explained to him that he was a human being, not a mouse. Finally he believed it, and the psychiatrist told him, “You are now cured, you can go home.”
Five minutes later, the patient comes running back, panting, and exclaims, “I saw a cat on my way home!”
The doctor told him, “But you know now that you are a human being, you need not be afraid of cats.”
The patient said, “Well, I know; but how can I be sure that the cat knows?”
