As I've said in my other post I've just recently realized how much of our lives seem mechanical, or, like it's computer simulated like the matrix, or, how much of our lives seem fabricated. I just think that life feels really phony at times. I'm not a depressed person. I'm not a lonely person. It's just that I notice- like- we just go to university, get a job, and, work for our lives, and, have fun, or, we just get brainwashed by the mainstream media and that's it? What's different about me now- is that now- I am more attuned to what's wrong with the world, or, what doesn't seem quite right. It's just like I see the world now and things don't seem quite right. It's like with me before- I used to be really interested in politics. Now I see that things aren't really what they seem they are- as- with politics. It's just weird. I just have been thinking- that- there really should be more to life. We're just kept from going crazy because we have entertainment to keep ourselves occupied. We worry about issues that seem trivial. I mean, just something about this seems wrong to me.
Does what I'm saying make sense?
I just realize how much we're being manipulated all the time. I mean, why must this go on? It just doesn't make sense to me. I'm starting to see the manipulating more and more, and, I'm starting to see the lies, and the pieces to the puzzle that is life.

1Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:
2She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.
3She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,
4Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
5Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.
6Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.
7He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot.
8Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
9Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
10The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
John 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
