That seems like a rather paranoid statement to me.  While I must
confess ignorance to your reference to "delusions of reference",
I think I follow you on the others.

Let me suggest that it is healthy to be able to accept a notion
that there may be others who have done more, seen more, and know
more than ourselves.  To suggest otherwise seems to me to be
rather egotistical.
