Aside from psychdelics.
    #2662680 - 05/11/04 12:29 PM (14 years, 15 days ago)

Aside from psychedelics does anyone feel that theres something wrong
with there reality? I know this is a vague question, but those who
understand it will be able to answer. It's a nagging feeling that will
not go away.

The Buddha started his spiritual journey when he encountered old age, sickness, and death after living behind palace walls where such scenes were kept from him by his father (according to legend). His world view changed from "everything is just fine" to "something is seriously wrong with this existence". It is this feeling that there is something wrong with existence that drives the spiritual aspirant.

?What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.?

-- Morpheus

The irony (and this is getting ahead of the story here), is that the spiritual path ultimately leads to a place where you realize that NOTHING is wrong with reality.

On a personal note, I know exactly what you mean. This feeling has brought me immense suffering and is really the rocket fuel I use on my spiritual journey.

This can be interpreted so many ways. Do you mean there's something missing from our physical world? Is it the fact that we don't know everything about our physical world? Or is it the reality as you percieve it, as your life in the world?

You're right, that is a vague question.




Reality as I percieve it does not feel right. Theres something wrong with the world. A feeling that something greater is going on. I just can't pin down what it is. I'm not talking about local earth events. More like all life is being controlled extra-dimensionally. This is the closest I can pin it.

yes I have always felt that the universe is fundamentally illogical.

the universe does not make sense. Humans try to make sense of the universe.

these little pockets of anti-entropic activity often seem to have difficulty navigating through the realms of entropic processes...
