Self-Awareness Question: Escape Reality

Folks have mentioned an interest in questions and conversations that make them think. So I've decided to offer more of those.  This is the current list on self-awareness.

2. Do you engage in activities to escape your reality?

That is literally my profession.  Not only do I visit other dimensions, I bring back instructions for replicable ideas that other people can use if they, too, are displeased by this shithole society.  It is proving quite popular.

I also like to escape society by going outside and socializing with nature instead.  Dear assholes of the world: you are actually much less interesting to me than a fallen log.  I would rather talk to birds than you.

Reality is ... a lot more variable for me than most people.  I'm aware of so many layers.  If I don't like one of them, I can just switch.  Some are harder to evade than others.  Climate change, for instance.  But a lot of what people think is "real" is actually stuff that a bunch of humans made up and say  is real.  Bad laws.  Money.  Religious dogma.  Hell, I'm even aware that matter is nothing more than a bunch of whizzing bits of energy pretending really hard to be solid.  The core of reality is self.  Wherever you go, that's where you are, and you can't get away from you.  So try to make sure that you like yourself, even if you're stuck in a shithole society you don't want to be in and constantly work to escape so it can't belt you again.
