3. Seeing reality deeply can be very depressing.

Then you have an existential crisis.

Seeing and feeling deeply and being imaginative means that many people will never understand any of the music or art you produce, or why you have to do your creative thing.

When people are extremely conservative and conformist, they have no idea why anyone should be different, and they fear anyone who is different. They think any one who is not exactly like them is BAD.

Kinda like people who hate hippies.

"Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it."--John Lennon
