I suppose that when any one person is alone and in a vulnerable or emotionally unstable mood, spurred on by a hard day at work or school, that they invent a sort of philosophy all to themselves. The question then is are these personal philosophies simply a tool which people rely on to stay sane or do they lead into darker more delusional scenarios in which people become detached from what is real and true in the world. Then again, how can one know that what is real and true is universally true, or is simply another personal theory used to make the world seem like a nicer place to him or her. This sort of recursive thought only leads to a head ache.
