His life oscillates, as everyone’s does, not merely between viaplay nedlasting pause to reflect poles, such as the body and the spirit, the saint and the sinner, but between thousands and thousands. We enter 2019 as residents of a world full of constant changes, persistent annihilation-level threats, and exhaustive information overload.
Our attempts to keep up — with an avalanche of tweets and social media posts, with news breaking by the hour, with a seemingly endless scroll of political scandals — are futile. Paying attention When we are unable to attend to what is important, we give up the chance to understand what is going on in sufficient detail to develop plans and make good decisions. When we dissociate routinely, we lose inner cohesion, risking irreversible fragmentation. This is true on individual levels, but the stakes are much higher when an entire society is asleep at the wheel.
Give us this day our daily dissociation Dissociation in a modest degree is normal. We need to dissociate regularly in order to function, as occasionally tuning out the rest of the world is necessary to allow us to tune into the most salient and relevant information in our environment. We have to block much of that out in order to really focus on the many variables at present: the multiple and unpredictable cars around us, pedestrians and cyclists who may be sharing the road, uncertainty about directions in getting to an unfamiliar place, sudden obstacles in the road. However, it’s important that dissociation be just a short-term coping tool, as in the long-run it can lead to big losses when we are absent during the present moment to avoid feelings and other experiences.
