  1. Or maybe the meaning of life for someone is to read as many books as possible, and learn a lot of new and interesting things? You know, not everyone is willing to spend decades doing all the research again. It is easier for them to read about it, how people came up with it, how they solved the difficulties that arose on their way.
    (oh yes, I'll talk specifically about books)
    It also brings to mind the catch phrase: “A non-reader lives one life, a reader lives thousands.” And, you know, it's true. In fact, reading a book about a character, his adventures, you experience his feelings and emotions together with him, therefore, you “live” his life. Then there are more and more books you've read, and now you're arguing with someone who looks like you about whether Ichthyander's love for that girl was a mistake, or whether they would have lived a wonderful life together, while most people have no idea what you're talking about and are discussing a new series of “Psychic Battles”.
    Хотя Although, can you criticize people for their interests? So if you spend your whole life working a boring and boring job, you're also wasting your life, and that's a good thing? Of course, here you can say that work is a necessity, and you had no choice… Oh no, you had a choice, but you were afraid to make it.
    Also, some people do read and hang out on their computers to escape reality. Take a break from it. What's wrong with that? Are they wasting their lives? You probably spend the same amount of money hanging out on social networks. social networks, or doing your favorite thing. After all, if you like to draw, for example, and draw all day, then isn't this considered a departure from reality?�

    The answer to this question is given by each person to himself. This is already a matter of his principles and opinion, since each person is engaged in things that allow him to escape from reality. Now ask yourself: Is it bad? It seems to me that it is definitely not, but no one said that this is good, there are no uniform rules for all people.

    By the way, books not only allow you to escape from reality, but also to learn a lot of new information, that is, to develop yourself. And yes, where's the damn “philosophy” tag in the categories again?

  2. Reading and worrying about the characters distracts you from worrying about others and knowing more about them. The downside is that you lose the opportunity to better understand them, strengthen your relationship with them, and realize yourself in their environment. Plus, you become more individual, independent of others, their opinions and assessments. Therefore, it all depends on what goals you are pursuing at the moment and the skills of your adaptation to others.

  3. The creation of books, that is, the work of a writer, is also an escape from reality. In the imagination, you can do anything, but in reality, to get a little pumped up, you need to plow in the gym. Reality is gray, sticky, to go to Budapest you need to put a lot of effort and at the same time you will see the same thing as in the documentary about Budapest only from the worst angles.

  4. Well, it depends on what books to read. I prefer philosophy, journalism, science, science fiction. Sometimes you reread a page for five times to understand it. What a departure from reality there is, you begin to understand many processes. And this makes you even more bitter about reality

  5. The answer is simple. All that you have listed is also�reality!
    You can only escape from reality if you die or at least lose consciousness.
    I think we should raise the question of leavingот from everyday everyday life.
    It turns out that any “hobby” is a departure from reality? And if everyday life is such that you should not be particularly interested in it and put it “at the forefront”?
    The goal of a person's life is not to “earn a living”, but to develop as a person. Then all these “hobbies” serve just that.

  6. Well, it's worth making a distinction here. Books, movies, and PC games are primarily about satisfying intellectual needs.�

    If everything is clear with books and movies, then games can drag you into virtual reality. Here the problem is not that a person can spend his life, but what is wrong in his life. If the hero's quality is up to 100 lvl more interesting than life, then in reality there is something to run away from… A person could try to fix their life, but unfortunately, playing as a great and powerful dragon slayer is much more interesting than work, girls and friends. And you don't need to put any effort into it… If friends need time, a girl needs money, and money needs work and energy-yes, most people will choose to be a make-believe great hero, and not a dude with a girl and a bunch of friends. The process of socialization, the path to the bottom of society… But there's something, sooooo, he swears dragons down!�

    In this case, it is better to lead to a therapist.

  7. Let the author then tell you how NOT to spend your life, but to do something different with it, given that it will end in death sooner or later anyway. I, in connection with this sad fact, believe that you need to try to do what you like. We all have different interests, like different things – someone likes a relaxing holiday, someone likes sports, someone likes to sleep at all and watch dreams instead of TV shows. There are no classes that are better or worse, there are those that you like. I'm too lazy for sports. But I like to read and play games – so that my head works, not my body, and my imagination turns on. But just as easily, if I wasn't so lazy, I could run cross-country with abandon, letting go of reality and giving myself up to the speed and wind, not noticing anything around me. So it doesn't matter what you do if it can completely consume you. That's why we do all this – so that we don't get depressed from boredom and emptiness in our heads)

  8. This is a failure of the reward system in the brain, which developed without such entertainment. In recent centuries, they have become an easy “source” of stimulating hormones, requiring the least energy consumption, and the brain saves energy as much as it can. Those who have developed awareness and understanding of the harms of such “hanging out” make an effort and try to complicate their leisure time, making it more useful and diverse.
