Yeah, you're right. My ocd, however, simply can't digest that. It's like "well, I don't have any proof of others being conscious. guess you must be imagining all of this in a huge psychedelic trip!" Funny, but very tough at times.
What do you want for an answer? It seems that you're assuming some sort of human-relatable reason here, some sort of agency and objective purpose behind it all, like there was some entity-who of course thinks exactly like a human-who thought it would be cool to have all this stuff doing all this stuff, and so it made the stuff do stuff. Yeah, you're not the only one, hence the existence of so many different religions. We just want to shove agency everywhere; it's natural for us to do so. Doesn't mean there is actual agency everywhere. There is probably no reason, at least the kind that would satisfy you, for your existence. There sure are physical processes that gave rise for your existence, but there isn't some grand cosmic narrative with a protagonist and antagonist that you're probably looking for here.Like, "mh, I'm really experiencing all of this right now, but why? why am i even here, what's the purpose of all this?"
DP never gave me any more existential thoughts than I had prior to it. I don't see why it needs to. If my sense of self is distorted, I have no reason to attribute it to anything but some sort of neurological disturbance because that's what it really is. Nothing more. The self-construct is a result of the physical interaction of neurons just like everything else, and prone to abnormalities which then directly impact your consciousness.For those who've also suffered from depression while dp'd, how did you deal with the existential thoughts?
Well, good to hear. I know I'm blunt, but it's just the way I tend to write. I'm not hostile or trying to be disrespectful (and hopefully aren't) or anything.Yeah, you both are right. Fifth, I appreciate the brutal honesty, it actually worked pretty well hahah
