    The primacy of experience

    and the dignity of the individual. What is real is this experience, what is real is this moment. Trust yourself (Terence McKenna) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GN-vMMpja30

    Lately I've been losing my sense of reality.

    Not quite sure that makes sense. It's odd really.. It's like I have these memories that aren't mine and when I talk about it with someone who I thought I shared it with, they don't remember at all. Or like, and this may sound silly, but I thought I bought a hamster the other day...

    but I've  realised that the more you wonder the less you live, just be in the moment, that's what realness is.

    Is My Mind In The Right Place?

    I wonder what is real?... Sometimes I wonder if there really is a God?.. or if we're just some big experiment for some aliens on another planet. I wonder if love is real and maybe it can last forever?.. but then I see so many unhappy couples divorcing or cheating on each other. I...

    Sometimes I am up all night

    and I try to slow down or even stop my breathing because every time I breathe in and out my heart rate gets faster and I feel like it's going to explode. Then I hear these weird noises and I start seeing colors in my eyes and sometimes I even see light and dark spots like I do...

    I Sometimes Wonder If This ...

    I sometimes wonder if this life of ours is real , or someone or something elses imagination. The last place I lived in , I often felt like I was not alone when standing in front of the bathroom mirror.

    Edges

    For as long as I can remember, I've analyzed and worried about where the boundary between reality and not-real is defined. Now, most of my worrying is based on the overlap of awake-dreaming from narcolepsy in memory that I have a hard time distinguishing which conversations...

    The comprehension of counsciousness belonging

    to oneself leaves you helpless. Experiencing the world through abstract tools. Dwelling on the notion of meaning. It is the greatest most vicious punishment of all. Gazing at their eyes. Waiting. Endless quest. I can't help but ponder if this raging ocean of sense contains only...

    What I Think Is Real

    Have you ever been walking and then you saw another person and right away you felt connected to that person even though you never met them before? That connection that was felt in that moment is what I think is real and exists between all of us humans on earth. The trouble is...

    The Real Me And The Other Me

    Reality has its depth in the meanings. A living organism, for example, has profound relationships, and it means these relationships, and yet one can view one as a sex-object. Children have profound relationships, but most adults either don't bother to see them at all or they...

    Which Side of Me Do I Trust?

    I've been getting deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole, and have learned to trust and rely upon my intuition, my inner voice.  But now I'm starting to question everything.  I feel like I'm being pulled out by my ankles, forced to look at everything around me, instead...

    You'Re Not A Baby, Baby.

    I shouldn't be so judgmental about adult babies. I've been an adult teen for almost a decade. Just ask my mom. haha. I don't get it though, the reality of being a baby isn't all that great. You're helpless, defenseless, and the food sucks. It's humiliating and frustrating to sit...

    "Reality is purely a perception of the

    individual mind. It follows, that since no two minds are alike, no two perceptions of reality are alike. It further follows, that what reality is to one, may seem complete madness to someone else." Yefim Novikov

    I Want To Hear Your Definitions

    Beyond the overall question of WHAT IS REAL, I get confused on the little things too, like what is "real" human behavior? With social norms, culture, work environments, and what ever little bit I think I know, these are all just flavors of an adapted person. If authentic is...

    Lately I've been having some trouble with

    reality. I don't know, maybe it's stress, but lately I find myself getting really unsure about what's going on, what's real and what's not, and who I even am. And I don't mean that in a philosophical way, I mean that very literally. Lately, I can't even read a book without...
