The thread about bringing back some one from the dead, why do we devote so much of our time to fantasies we know will never happen?

But still doesnt answer my question... Why? What drives us to do it? What makes us create false hope knowing it is just that at the time we desire it?

Because reality can be a big downer sometimes.

Oops. I thought this was a SHTF/zombie thread.

fantasize about that which will never happen? I just had an opportunity to shoot the largest frickin beatle that I've ever seen. I ran inside, grabbed up the slingshot, and nailed the bastard first pellet!!
I can now scratch "shoot huge beatle with slingshot, causing it to splatter" off of my fantasy list

I don't even open the threads. Well, Zombie threads, maybe, but those are important.

Because thinking constantly about how much reality sucks can get old.

Fantasies are not something to center your life around, but doesn't mean you can't think about them now and then.

Because the real world is so freakin boring for some of us.....reality bites.

Wishing for things that will never happen is the reason we have so many wonderful things in modern society.

This, for example:

So are you saying with out a fantasy man would never create something to fulfill his or her fantasy and so that would mean with out a fantasy we wouldn't live life but instead would simply exist?

I think you're reading too much into this, oly.

Because Human nature makes us naturally curios

I suppose for the same reason we watch movies and read fictional books. Sometimes life can be really boring or suck. Fantasies give us a moment in which we can escape all that.

It could happen.

because some people on this board have a walter mitty fantasy issue, by seeing themselves blasting away in "shtf", shooting it out with cops, "bad guys" and other nonsense scenarios........it seems that the more guns some people own, their IQ goes down, and their fantasy level goes up, or they start seeing paranoid visions.
