Dear King Oedipus After conducting a series of interviews and examining your personal life experiences I have come to certain conclusions about your psychological condition While I find no permanent cure for your decease I would like to offer a few recommendations for your future treatment Unfortunately your diagnosis is not just the physical blindness but intellectual blindness as well The intellectual blindness in your case can be broken down into two components your ability to see and your willingness to see Not such a long time ago you had a perfect physical vision However you were blind and ignorant to the truth about yourself and your past You did get questioned Why are your eyes so cold 307 At that point it was already obvious that your actions must be to overcome the blindness If you could only see The nature of your own feelings 323-324 Your encounter with a prophet Teiresias who was physically blind just reaffirmed that you were ignorant to the true appearance of things - this blind man could see the truth about you yet you Oedipus the King in all of your physical exactness could not You mock my blindnessyou with your precious eyes blind to the corruption of your life I can only imagine how painful it must have been for you to learn the true nature of things - your past was revealed and you learned that the oracle was correct But since you were not timely diagnosed you could not handle to see truth You desperately did not want to accept your fate So in response you committed an act of avoidance by blinding yourself Unfortunately self-treatment does not help in your situation Perhaps it was an act of cowardice because you didnt want to accept the situation the way you saw it and decided instead not to see it at all Unfortunately you were not just blind to the truth regarding Laius murder
