"I'm wondering if anyone has ever experienced these strange thoughts before?" Yes, and I don't think those thoughts are strange at all, just normal contemplation of reality. Just as long as you don't obsess over them.

"Am I delusional because I keep having these thoughts?" NO, don't convince yourself your crazy, the mind is powerful thing so try your best to stay confident in your sanity.

"It was an 8-9 hour drive because of all the traffic. I was tired and drank a large 24 ounce cup of coffee along with two red bulls, and a couple of diet cokes. Additionally, I had a Starbucks Frappuccino that morning. We arrived home and I got to my mom's house, and just crashed. I fell asleep and woke up about 8 hours later."

Diet coke contains aspartame which breaks down in the metabolism partly into methanol, a potent neurotoxin, some of the symptoms of excessive methanol intake include "Neurological: headache, dizziness, agitation, acute mania, amnesia, decreased level of consciousness including coma, and seizure."source Just one diet soda contains ove 30 times the EPA's recommended daily consumption limit of methanol. I can't drink that crap without getting head aches. All of those drinks in combination with the exhaustion from driving probably did not help.
