You are familiar with missing something because nattermind has your awareness occupied with its musings.
Most people daydream every day. In fact, it is abnormal if you do not! ~ American psychologist Philip Zimbardo et al
Daydreaming is as normal as the ignorance of the Collective, because the mind running the show is what defines ignorance.
Youngsters daydream more than later in life. Nattermind engenders ignorance early on by generating paracosms and distractions that lower environmental awareness and obscure knowledge of one’s own true nature.
