Something I have been musing over on and off for many years. Have you ever had times in your life when you look around at all the violence, wars on
Earth and felt you did not really come from this planet but from elsewhere?
Do you mean this literally? In that case no, I never tried that. Why would you think that about yourself? It seems you had a kind of
psychological/dream state event happen to you at an early age. Why would you conclude from that that you were from another planet? You shouldn't, it
won't make you understand yourself better.
However, if you mean symbolically, that you feel estranged, or you feel 'weltschmertz', then I know what you mean, and many others do to, in some
degree and form or another.
Society can get you down. But as an individual you still have two choices to make:
- Continue a path of depression and anxiety, continue to seek escape and push the core problem forwards. Or,
- Look into yourself, and find out, honestly, what made you feel estranged. Perhaps you did not feel loved enough as a child, or did not feel
understood? Like, you couldn't share the lamp experience. Which could just have been a reaction to emotional stress? Emotional stress because you just
didn't feel full confident in your parents, perhaps they would generally not give you their time?
Mind you, many people would know what you were talking about, don't worry. Many parents are bad at showing love and reaching out, many teachers have
trouble reaching out to every kid in class. You are not the only one, and that's what you have to understand for yourself.
In any case, this is a psychological/mental thing that almost all people experience in some degree or another in their life. Also, when you're a kid,
you can react 'psychedelically' to simple things like the flu, semingly innocent medicin, not having had enough to drink etc.
Finally, I don't think this thread belongs in the UFO/aliens area. An orange lamp does not a UFO make, we are dealing with a psychological phenomenon.
And the first step towards making it better, is to understand that it's a psychological thing. Forget the aliens and the otherworlds, they are not
relevant to your moving forward in life.
