If you have to ask if it's normal it probably isn't normal

The word you're looking for is "relative", not "illusion"

"Illusion" means to have fun.


...It's a famous quote. And illusion most certainly does not mean to have fun. It means something that is wrongly perceived, seen, or interpreted.

"To play with" - "To mock at" - "Jesting"

The "act of deception" is relatively new, as the etymology will tell you.

I'm not poking at your understand of the language or anything, I was just informing you on what the word truly meant, as people will opt for "usage" or "definition" which it's definition is it's etymology.

Hey hey hey you stop with your name calling XD
I think that it's perfectly normal, shows that you have a active imagination. Did anyone else hear about the thing when you hear that ringing noise in your ear that it's ghosts trying to communicate with you?? or am i alone on that one?? lol

I like the way Coleridge put in best:

Like one, that on a lonesome road
Doth walk in fear and dread,
And having once turned round walks on,
And turns no more his head;
Because he knows, a frightful fiend
Doth close behind him tread.

And I think this sort of thing happens to most people at some point. As long as one is aware that this is an exaggerated response, I see no reason to be overly concerned. Still, the mind really is a frightening thing that can conjure dreadful ideas.


When I read this, immediately what came to mind is that Massive Attack song Angel..well the music video.

Well I'd say believing it is rather common, but it has a lot to do with psychology. It could be a way of thinking or even a mental illness. There are different levels of it, me thinks

The Hinamizawa syndrome is strong in this one. If you start digging at your throat you know it's to late.

Completely normal. My old house had this middle room area that you had to walk through, kind of the central hub, and I had to run through it from fear of the feeling behind me. Sometimes I had to make an excuse to have someone escort me through out of fear.
