It seems that more and more people are being diagnosed with  depression. There are, of course, several types of depresssion but each of them is debilitating for the sufferers. But what is the cause and why does it seem to be growing?

Readers of my book, SPIRITUAL MAN: AN INTRODUCTION TO NEGATIVE DIMENSIONS, will know that I suggest that the human brain works in three time dimensions, an idea first described by Thomas Aquinas. He described 'tempus' as earthly time, 'aevum' as 'angelic' time and 'aeternitas' as a time reserved for those who knew God. In my theory earthly time (t) is that which we experience and which I call 'real' time. 'Unreal' time, (-t), responsible for the power of recall allows memory and is instrumental in forming the 'character' of people. 'Imaginary' time, (it, where i is the square root of minus one) suggested by Professor Hawking in his book 'A Brief History of Time' as a means of avoiding singularities, gives humans the power to think and compute using all the data collected by the 'unreal' time and the present circumstances as experienced by the senses. It is also responsibility for mankind's innate spirituality.

At conception, the newly developing foetus has a new brain. Like a computer it needs software to operate and this comes from the DNA of the parents, a record  of life that goes back to the very first single cell. The 'unreal' time component of the brain trawls the DNA for data to help the child survive including a character. Unlike hair or eye colour this may not come from close relatives but from one who lived generations before. How many times have we heard parents lament that they don't know where little Johnnie came from? It's also why two siblings can be completely different having been nurtured in the same household.

Is it possible that a character from the past, despite being prepared by the 'imaginary' time component of the brain for life and nurtured in the modern era, cannot cope with modern day living? Might depression, in its many guises, be the consequence of a software incompatability evolved over many generations and is it possible that the problems are getting worse leading to more and more people inexplicably suffering depression despite evidence that they ought to be happy and content?
