I'll check out your article later.

The voices that some mentally ill people hear are their own thoughts that somehow get disassociated from the self. That is, they get attributed to an outside source. So a person who has low self esteem might have a thought like, "You're worthless," and instead of understanding that it's his own thought will think it came from somewhere or something or someone else. This can get incredibly complex.

That's my take on the issue. I'll check out your article later to see what the experts have to say.
