It sounds bloody horrible TBH, I wouldn't wish it on anybody.

Suzanne Segal had an episode in her 20s that was diagnosed by several psychologists as depersonalization disorder, though Segal herself interpreted it through the lens of Buddhism as a spiritual experience, commonly known as "Satori" or "Samadhi".[56]

Was you hoping that I'd tell you to fuck off in order I'd accumulate another ban?

... Did Thommo advise that you should do this? Just curious.

No and no. I genuinely thought, and to a lesser extent think, that you might be suffering from the condition. It is apparently remarkably common (1-2% of the population) and the way you repeatedly and profoundly refer to your body as being a mere puppet which your mind does not inhabit seems to fit. There's no shame in mental illness (although you seem to disagree) so of course I wasn't trying to get you to tell me to fuck off, and imagining some plot orchestrated by Thommo to get you banned is pure crystal paranoia. I was actually hoping it might be a path to some form of recovery for you which might help you feel and act better - it seems like you treat this place like a toilet these days TBH, only turning up in the wee hours drunk to "have a fight" as it were and indulge your "interesting" perspective on the human condition, neither of which I like and are clearly symptoms of distress/illness, by my mind.

So what happens 0.36 seconds later when a new mind - or budding mind - is born?

In the abstract, your statement sort of must be true, but it requires a host of other factors too.

It could also mean that there can never be a final social revolution. Fortunately many minds are prone to change, so even a temporarily all-mind final social revolution might not actually prove to be final.

That's the shallow end.

Minds may perceive reality and define it for themselves, but they don't actually define reality.
