At random points for me, I suddenly get a weird feeling and suddenly cant produce images in my head. I try and can for a little bit (I can barely see the images) and suddenly my mind does not allow me and stops the image and suddenly cant see it anymore until I keep trying. Words then start to just be words to me and dont mean anything to me and when I read, it doesn't do anything to me (this is sometimes as well). My head then starts to feel blank and no thoughts or anything and I start to feel really pressured. I also get a little bit anxiety after it happens, so the anxiety does not make it like this. Anyone relate and anything I can do about this? I would be happy if I can PM someone as well ^^ (there is no disconnection and everything is real)
I often call the blank mind and depersonalization in general "the other side of humanity." Most people are feeling, thinking, perceiving, lively beings while we are empty, emotionless, thoughtless, disconnected creatures fighting for scraps of humanity not for our satisfaction, but in order to temporarily validate our precarious existence so that we do not fall into the pit of something that seems far worse than death and non existence, a nothingness that relentlessly attempts to eliminate any sense of existence by destroying everything which makes up the identity into smaller and smaller pieces in some of the most painful and mortifying ways possible.
Yes, I believe DP has some relation to enlightenment. I think you can learn a lot from DP and DR as it gives you a different perspective on life and the universe and once you recover from it you are a different person. I think people are simply afraid or wary of calling this experience enlightenment because it may be too strong a word for some and others are suffering too much to even consider that their are positives to this subjective experience.
Well, the user ImCharlieGordon on netdoctor (Topic: http://forums.netdoc...ve-lethargy/p1) has made a few videos describing his experience with the blank mind. I don't think he wants too much traffic on his video(s) based on what he says in the first one, but since many here can relate to what he experiences I thought I would share.
