There are many way to escape the reality, excessive work, excessive exercise, excessive drinking, excessive reading, spending all free time watching stupid stuff on TV or playing stupid computer games all night…

It seems as if most people try all they can to escape what is here and now. Why do we feel that we desperately have to escape? What is the mechanism behind it? Why do we feel that we have to make ourselves much more stupid or silly than we actually are?

Are we afraid of the reality? Are we afraid of the now? The now can be quite pleasant but we try to escape it anyway. Why is that? Is it out of habit? Why is it so difficult to just relax now and then and simply do nothing?
