Detachment of the Body, Reality & the Mind

Ever hear the term detachment?

Most likely you have, if not here is one of the few handy definitions for you.

Detachment: a condition in which something has become separated from something else

Go here for more definitions on the word.

So lately I have been feeling a sense of detachment. I suppose it would be fitting to say that this all started last week. First we had an emergency with our pet dog who turns out to be having some health issues, that I’m sure plays a part in this. Then I have also been faced with some other decisions in life which no doubt help play a role in this as well. On top of that my body fell a little ill due to the quickly changing weather from warm sunny days to very cold rainy days.

What I find most interesting in all this however is the feeling, or lack of them that one may experience during these detached experiences. We all live by our own reality, it is just on a majority of things we all tend to agree on because they can either be explained logically or scientifically and be proven through demonstrations. But there are things in life we perceive uniquely and that helps shape our reality. Now imagine where you just feel that you are drifting further away from your reality.

What do you think that feels like?

I will preface this by saying that these are momentary, very short in their time frame. So what I experience is lightheaded, dizziness and a near total numbness of my body. That numbing causes me to loose feeling in my whole body giving a sort of a light feeling. Generally when you are lightheaded, your mind will tend to go blank, or just drift away into the deeper cracks of your mind. I suppose that is what has happened with me as well as every time I come back, I feel as if I had left my reality for a moment in favor of whatever lies within my imagination, or in favor of simply drifting in a void.

It may sound sad to some, while to others it may sound like a nice momentary escape. To me, I think it happens for a reason. It happens to help the mind cope with the stress, negativity and the burdens we all experience as adults due to the trivialities we must deal with of living in human society. This is further enhanced by the fact that if you are a young adult struggling to get off the ground, that imagined land, or the void may seem more favorable in place of the reality you perceive daily.

Is this healthy?

In short doses, maybe. I mean we all need to get away from just about everything in our life sometimes. But if you do this all the time, or most of the time then I would say you are compromising your survival in human society. Sadly we all can’t just sleep forever living in our perfect world, we are not the center of the universe for the rest of the human population.

But that feeling of drifting away to a better place will no doubt be now deeply ingrained in my mind.

Video Games & The Mindset

You know, I have always been surprised at the power a mindset can have over how fun, engaging and accepting we can seem of things. This is true for video games as well. Lately as I play Borderlands 2, I have been struggling to get into it 100%. My last game, Tales of Symphonia had this problem as well. But for that game, I was in it at the start, but due to its enormous length I was starting to get fatigued.

With Borderlands 2 however, it is a different story. From the start it felt like an on off experience. There are things in the game that excite me, yet things that dreadfully bore me. For example, the exploration, even if bare it is still fun. But when it comes to the action, it becomes boring quite quickly if I engage in it for too long. That is indeed quite sad since the bulk of enjoyment from Borderlands 2 comes generally from the action.

Quests that have non-action objectives I find more intriguing than ones involving going to some place and shooting up something. I had the same problem with the original Borderlands as well. Most of the time I find my mind going numb from all the shooting as I finally shut down the PS3 at the end of the gaming session. That is not a good feeling to have after playing a game. I suppose one could argue that this just isn’t my cup of tea.

081BUT then something happened. Something changed my mindset on this game completely and that is partaking in the 4 player co-op. When I play with other people, the game becomes more exciting to play through due to the social aspects of team work. When I play by myself, it is nothing more than a chore, while at times it becomes interesting. Borderlands I believe was a game designed with action, loot, exploration and team work in mind. I enjoyed my co-op sessions on the original one quite extensively compared to playing on my own.

There is quite an interesting correlation between the mindset and the tasks you do. With the right mindset the tasks can be bearable, with the correct mindset they can be fun. But when your mind is just not into something, it will feel like a chore to grind through.

There are certain video games you can just pop on in and get playing, while others require a certain mindset to really get into it. The Borderlands series is just a few of those games I suppose. One of the things I have found that helps the most when I play is just taking a vehicle and driving around. If I come across enemies, I simply ignore them and drive around trying to find new locations and lootable places. It definitely does help, that is until the game forces a large action segment onto you… =_=.

I know a lot of people love Borderlands and its sequels. What has your experience been with the Borderlands series?

Thanks for reading.

UPDATE: Lack of Postings

Hey everyone,

This is just a quick update to let those that read on my blog know that I won’t be posting on here for a while.

I’m currently working on a little animation project for my YouTube channel. I may post updates about it here, but once I think it is ready to be unveiled, there will be a post about it here.
