I found this presentation by Jonathan Drori to be a very welcome, but somewhat genteel exposition of the irrationality of the public and the educational system when it comes to our models of reality.  We do not teach our children that every model is just that, a model.  No one has a full grasp of reality.

There are five states of mind:  Chaotic, Hypersystemic, Systemic, Hyposystemic and Comatic.

I’d also like to use the same terms for the states of any system.

I think the mental health community would benefit by abandoning the old terms and adopt these.
