you might understand how difficult it is to return to "reality", that is, an existence that has no vibrancy in comparison

people normally can't go back, they have to aspire forward in some way

So your newest delusion is that your relationship delusion has elevated you over the common rabble, got it. Jesus Christ I waste my life reading comic books but you waste your consciousness on lies. It makes me feel claustrophobic tbh.

If you're going to read, but find nothing to cheer you up or stimulate you, why bother? If all you're doing by reading is reinforcing your stereotypical teen(ish) belief that "world iz agin me dude" then you're just wasting your time. Imo. I read to improve my knowledge, increase my appreciation of various subjects. And for fun. Christ man, you're only young. Cheer up ffs. Can't be that bad can it? And if you believe it is, as WWWP says, get some help.

LMAO perfect

I agree that getting help is the best option, Elph. If you can't get joy out of things you like then I think the problem is not a lack of meaning, but depression. I mean that I think you're looking at your problem from the wrong angle.

^ I'm quoting this because I occasionally wonder about time. Anyone have any clever ideas about what it is? Sometimes it's labelled "a fourth dimension" and it's clearly important because nothing exists without it, but does anyone really know how or why one second ticks over into the next ?

I know elphenor was talking about different stuff like aspirations and memories, but his statement could also be rephrased like this:-

People can never go back because time never goes backwards - and theoretically people don't have to do anything except sit and wait because the future is gonna come to them anyway, regardless.
(That last part is an empirical result that you can confirm for yourself. To conduct the experiment at home you will need: one watch, one armchair.)
