Or is it the only way one can say, “Pain and suffering, dissolution of my dreams, death of my loved ones, the annihilation of everything into Cosmic chaos and the eventual heat death of the universe . . . but Hey! It’s all worthwhile!”
Maybe the delusion is what makes your passage miserable and sinks your boat, rather than what keeps it afloat and makes the journey awesome?
Can you still do “awesome”?? Or just miserable? Which is the “delusion”? Or at the very least, the best delusion!?
