Have you ever thought, or gotten the gut-feeling, or toyed with the idea – that everyone is talking about you? Not necessarily in a bad way. Well, yes, in a bad way. Like they know something about you that you don't, or something you know but didn't think they did. And then you start contemplating the idea that maybe -just maybe!- secret hidden cameras are following you everywhere, and everyone is getting second-to-second updates on your life. When they look at you, they know the color of the underwear you're wearing; they know you had a fight with your brother; they know you spent ages on your hair in the morning but failed to make it look presentable. They know you're laughing and joking now but just this morning you were crying. They know exactly when you're lying, and they know the truth, because they've seen it happen.
And just when you begin to think you're a total weirdo for thinking that stuff, you watch that movie, The Truman Show, the one where Jim Carry plays a character whose whole life turns out to be a reality show. A reality show that everyone in the world watched and knew about - except for him, and the town he lived in was nothing but an artificial world designed to keep him from escaping and finding out the truth.
And after you watch the movie and think, whoever wrote this script has got serious problems! - you remember: Oops, I was just thinking along those same lines.
Does this mean you have serious problems? Or, since at least one other person has thought of it before, maybe hundreds of others have, too?
Imagination is a funny, funny thing really, when you think about it. At least it keeps you entertained.
Especially when you're supposed to be studying.
