People, for all their various reasons and motives, enjoy taking a long walk off the short pier of reality
. Some do it with drug
s - alcohol
s, some do it with religion
- "Marshall Applewhite
told me if I castrate
myself and commit suicide
will pick me up", some do it with meditation
- "om mani padme hum om mani padme hum om mani padme hum
", some do it with simple escapism - TV
s, the Internet
. While some people do it to gain a pleasurable sense of relief from the realities of life that normal persons
do not receive because life is no special burden for them
, everyone I've ever met at one point or so does this.
Too much reality is bad for you, I guess.
