    It kinda does because if someone's delusional, they'll have false ideas or beliefs that can't be true, especially if there's evidence proving it wrong, but they'll still believe it. So the person may not know they're being delusional, because to them the belief is true/ real and there's no way it can't be.

    If that makes sense

    Yup. Ok so it does makes sense then because the definition of delusional is a false idea/belief, so their idea is so false they don't even know it. Seems pretty legit. Thanks!
