I've always had a vivid imagination, at least I think it is and I suppose that's all that matters with something like your imagination. I also
daydream extremely vividly, particularly if I'm listening to good music and occasionally I can sort of have it 'triggered' by looking at an object
or image or after hearing something.
I'm not talking about 'vivid' as in I see... I don't know an imaginary bat flying around my room that I can't discern from reality, nothing
'crazy' like that. I just zone out and get really deeply involved in fantasies, daydreams and my own imagination in general. Often it'll feel like
I've been 'in it' for a while, but I'll sort of come back out and almost no time has passed. I always found the speed the brain can process stuff
like this amazing.
I should also say so that I don't sound egotistical, I don't think this makes me THA BEST!!!1 and much to my dismay I'm horrible at art and
everything, so there's no way for me to express my own imagination into the real world. Bummer!
Now I can draw my own physical/psychological conclusions about why this is so, I'm also about as straight-edge as you get (I don't like that term
though) so drugs aren't playing a part here! I thought I'd hear the side I'm reluctant to hear though, the more obscure side to do with
spirituality or aliens or god know's what else!
What do you guys think about this stuff happening? Are there alternative theories on this sort of stuff?
In a way it actually annoys me. The stuff is so vivid yet usually utterly impossible that it becomes frustrating. I'll refrain from using specific
examples (that's personal!) but needless to say I can imagine incredible things that I wish were real, yet never will be and it leaves me hurting a
Ahh well. Perhaps everyone is the same in this regard and I'm overemphasising how much of an issue it is, I don't know, but I wanted to get some
alternative views on it as this is about as far-out as I go.
Oh and... I thought of taking this to BTS, but I'm interested in 'crazy' or 'alternative' theories about it, not the facts or theories I already
