You know who just had a great idea? That's right.
Imagine if we all had imaginary friends. Like seriously. And I know this sounds so stupid. but no seriously
Think about it.
Let's imagine. That just for a second we hallucinated actual beings. (I suppose human or not... probably be less confusing if they were non-human)
Like 1 or 2 ... or maybe even 6. As friends. You know.
Of course others couldn't see them, but the individual could.
Let's say these beings had different personalities and brought different things to our lives. Idk. Maybe one was good at memorizing things and one was good at math.
How incredible would that be?
No seriously. Why would that be bad? It couldn't be if everyone did it, or if it was at least the norm.
It almost wants me to hypnotize myself into creating one. In fact... .... ... i might try it.
So what does this solve? Loneliness.
It's not QUITE like you're talking to yourself. It'd be different ... sorta. They are derivatives of your subconscious. They could help you learn more about yourself. I'd call them shadows.
But it's kinda cool when you think about it. Shut up. Yes it is. You know it is, so shut up.
You'll always have someone else with a different perspective.
Oh god, that'd be totally awesome.
