Thats the million dollar question... why does it persist after its purpose is served?

If we could answer that, we could be given honorary doctorates of psychology.

Sometimes I feel as if the dp mechanism in our mind is so powerful and so effective at protecting us from immediate overload that our normal psyche simply has no method of turning it off. Never before had I felt "I am not real" or "that guy sure looks like a robot", and it consumed me.

But once those feelings begin, the obsession begins to figure them out. To make sense of them, thus feeding the dp cycle. Its a completely new problem, no matter how old you are when your dp began.

I dont know, throwing things out there....
