If you wish to cure schizophrenia you must stop depending on advancements in science and start focusing on becoming aware (meditating).

Divided consciousness is ignorance. This goes for ordinary self-view that the vast majority of humans possess, as well. Everything that arises is your very own self. That includes everything received through the six sense bases.

When you hear a scary voice, it is in fact that sound hearing itself but thinking that it is a human hearing the sound.

You are the sound hearing itself. You think you are a human and not a sound (due to past karma), so you create an imaginary separation in consciousness between yourself and, well, yourself.

This is why the sound can hear itself and get scared. It is ignorant of what it is (a sound) and thinks it is a human.

Wisdom combined with concentration is the only way to dispel ignorance. Until ignorance is dispelled there will always be suffering (conditioned existence).
