Why movies is better & more interesting than this boring Reality / real world / real life ?
Why video games is better & more interesting than this boring Reality / real world / real life ?
Why novels is better & more interesting than this boring Reality / real world / real life ?
Why comics is much better & more interesting than this boring Reality / real world / real life ?
Why anime/manga is better & more interesting than this boring Reality / real world / real life ?
in conclusion :
Why human’s IMAGINATION is better & more interesting than this boring Reality / real world / real life ?
‘fantasy’ or ‘sci-fi (sci fi / science fiction)’ movies (or games, anime/manga, comics, novels, books, etc etc) like Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Avatar, The Matrix, Sword Art Online, MMORPG games, etc etc have much more interesting & UNLIMITED worlds/realms/dimension & superpowers / magic & real ‘COOL’ superheroes , than this f*cking boring reality / realworld / reallife ???
if God really exists & real, then He/She/It must have played such a cruel, sick JOKE
for creating such “other-worldly / out of this world” type of human’s IMAGINATIONS / fantasy ,
….only just to STILL trap / imprison us humans (especially the smart & creative types of people) inside this f*cking damn mundane, dull, boring reality/real life/real world (and also to be placed among MAJORITY (like 90%) of f*cking stupid, shallow, superficial, dull, boring, mundane, ignorant “ordinary/normal” people/humans all around me/us ???…
fuck this… !!
please, just get me out of this reality , a cruel, sick, harsh, & boring reality … !!!
(PS: have any of you heard of Virtual Reality, Lucid Dreaming, Astral Projection/Travel ? )
Gosh. I could not agree with you more! The human imagination rocks. I’ve astral travelled to other dimensions countless times, but been called mad, locked up and medicated for it. Now I’m a burned out shell of a human being but at least I’m no trouble to anyone, right? ‘The Powers That Be’ have some sort of vested interest in keeping us enslaved I guess. But at least we’ve got books, movies, music, anime etc etc etc…if we didn’t chances are we’d all jump ship, or maybe there’d be a grand uprising…ok now this is going into the realms of fantasy, and I’m tapping this out on my smartphone but there’s a point in my ramble somewhere I think, lol!
Thanks for your post. It inspires me.
As a lifelong hater of reality, I hear you. But like Sepukku was saying, I think the benefit of all those great things (music, anime, movies, etc.) is that they’re a great distraction. What is entertainment but a great distraction? That is one of the evolutionary advantages of the creative impulse. It makes sticking around this harsh, boring, difficult world a little easier for everyone. To quote Master Yoda, “Luminous beings we are, not this crude matter.”
I don’t know if you have the creative impulse yourself, but if you do, developing it, and expressing your ideas, in whatever form – be it manga, music, literature, or what have you – might make life worth living, both for you and maybe for someone else, too. And if you don’t feel the impetus to create something, there’s still “so much beauty to be experienced” to paraphrase American Beauty. I suppose the secret to happiness is managing your beauty to misery ratio: try to foster as much beauty (however you define it) in your life as you can while reducing as much of your misery (whatever it may be) as you can manage.
Hello AnxietyGardener. Glad to see you. You always have the best insights to offer, just sayin. I hope you take your own advice because it is wonderful.
anxietygardener i love your posts
I am a professional artist and it makes me sad that you dont see more than that in life. What you think is cool and interesting is that, because that’s what we want you to think of it as. 😉 but where do you think we get those ideas from? All the fancy ideas can be traced back to real life. Nature is infinitely complex and unimaginably beautiful, and literally every artist who makes films and entertainment learns from nature. if only you could see. Truly great film, comics, story, anything, is not empty distraction, it opens your mind to different points of view and makes you see and think.
I always wanted to know what the point of imagination is myself and why we can’t live out our fantasies…
I think I googled once “I want to live in a fantasy world” and there was a lot of people talking about it. 😕
