Augmented Reality is a real nifty thing for the daydream-inclined. Instead of creating a completely separate and detached world, you try to fill in the boring parts of the one you're in. Synesthesia is an effective and sometimes involuntary method of doing this ~ imagining shapes, lights and synchronized movements to music. Or, making up songs out of the normal and very Monday events happening around you.


I like to think of it like layers in Photoshop, you can play with masks and hidden objects, switch them back and forth...

It's helped me become a bit more present in reality.


Usually, life feels kind of small. Sometimes I get the really strong feeling I'm gonna zoom out

Find myself playing a really long video game

Then get back to real life.


Going to DOWNTOWN takes me out of my world a bit

seeing the untold amount of possibility and reality just floating around in the streets and shops helps me vacation from my mind.


There's like, A feeling of everything going inside, a focus on the internal. Meditation self-self centered kind of feel that I definitely do a lot.

Then there's another feeling like everything inside is being directed outwards. I'm still not just inside reality, but I'm spiraling all my imagination out. I would link this more to prayer than mediation

It's not always prayer, often it's not. But the feeling is similar. This is why it's so important for me to do something ~ write, draw, sing, play whatever. I get this horrible build-up blah feeling if I don't. I have to take my daydreaming mind for walks outside my brain.


Maybe then I don't have to carry my home on my back?

Well, I prayed well before I started to meditate. I don't know what kind of meditation it is, but pretty much I do the same thing, except more inwards? Kinda like praying to myself but keeping the lines open to God and everything. I dunno, I kind of take it for granted, but I definitely have like an immediate change in feeling. Not necessarily better right away, but i know i'm messing with my brain frequency somehow, so to speak.

That's an awesome sentence! " I have to take my daydreaming mind for walks outside my brain."  I love that :).  Seriously, you should try to write a poem or a song with that line in it.  The last sentence you wrote with the turtle reference is also very good too.

very interesting post.  I also feel the need to "take my daydreaming mind for walks outside my brain," but was not able to articulate it like that.  Otherwise my dreams get stagnant, and adding outside material really enlivens them.  The opposite works as well, as you explained, enhancing reality with my mind.  So many concepts I have seen articulated on this site have hit home; I've just not put them into words before.  Thank you for doing that.  Do you write?

Interesting post... Did not understand completely but I guess you are talking of giving expression to our daydreams and connecting it to the real events around us. This helps in staying in touch with the real world(?). Even if I have misunderstood what I have understood makes sense and seems like a good thing to do.
