The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
The problem is when were on autopilot for so long that we forget we are on autopilot. Because when were not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them they control us. Whereas a person with self awareness is able to exercise a little meta-cognition and say, “Hmm… every time my sister calls me and asks for money, I end up drinking a lot of vodkas.
The problem is when we’re not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them. Whereas a person with self awareness just hits the bottle and doesn’t look back.
We’re not even aware that we’re doing it. Instead we have to fight through these habits, routines, impulses, and reactions to get where we’re going again. And while we’re on autopilot, if we are on autopilot, we don’t have to fight the habits, routines, impulses, and reactions that were causing us to get lost.
The problem is that once we’ve gotten so used to these habits, routines, impulses, and reactions that we no longer have any control over them, we can’t stop ourselves from doing all these things again. We do the same things over and over again, only now we’re fighting against our own subconscious mind. Because as we’ve probably guessed, our subconscious mind is not our friend. We just go nuts.
We have to fight against our own subconscious mind, the way we fight against a dark corner in our mind.
A dark corner in the mind is something like a dark room or a dark place that is always there. When you have a dark corner in your mind or in your heart, you know something is off about you and your moods are always low. You feel depressed, moody, and don’t have any energy to do anything. Your life is miserable because you feel like its the worst time of your life.
It might be a coincidence that a person who feels like this is Colt Vahn, he is a black rapper who has the ability to control his own mind. So if you do not have a dark corner in your mind, you are probably having a lot of trouble living a happy life and you are probably feeling depressed, moody, and low.
This is the reason why Colt Vahn is the protagonist of Deathloop. His life on Deathloop is basically a never ending loop and there is no way out. He is constantly being manipulated by people who are trying to get him to use his powers to kill people. The only way for him to escape is to kill them and bring the island to an end.
You can’t escape from the Dark Corner you are in. No matter how hard you try, nothing can make this moment disappear. Only by killing the people who are trying to make you forget you.
