I don't care about so many things that seem important. I've realized that so many of our values as human beings are rooted in hyperreality that doesn't have any real grounds beyond us believing them.
I feel like I've touched a cold spot facing away from the sun on some faraway planet. In a scary kind of way, I think I've hit a realization that has disconnected me from certain things I've known since I was a child.
I need to be my own anchor, now. Nothing else is real enough to hold on to.
I want to know if this is my depersonalization fucking with me or if this could be some kind of spiritual/paranormal ego thing. My mental health might just be fucked.
