In our present society, we are told to fantasize and increase the illusions that are already consuming us in our life.
“Dream big!” “Go for it!” “Just do it!”
When reality finally kicks in, it kicks hard. And we will do anything to escape it. Often, we will become hedonistic, deluding ourselves that things will be better—that any day now my ship will come in. But, what if this is as good as it gets?
We will do anything to distract ourselves from the reality of this material world–including drugs, even though we know that it is harmful to our bodies.
