    Feeling sick within once body is not an myth I often feel stressed,bored, depressed And this feelings are mostly due to chemicals in my brain thy do the hardwork we don't even think about so keeping an baseline or better way of living as you are right now screcheses the latter like the litter thy of consciousness covers the most part of what I am trying to say so it's not needed that you must see my comment but it's part of the universe as to say an "Rock is consious" it's part of the universe but it doesn't need energy to do something because it doesn't need to do anything because it's not consious as to say to an human many things come in here feelings are 1 I don't know why thy did not cover feelings part because it's directly linked to our consciousness maybe it's just sustisfaction as thy said is human feelings required as it should be but my sustisfaction comes outside of myself so masturbating doesn't do to much as to say having sex with actually human being so Most of the time this things are due to an consciousness it's up to the individual to focus on help rather then pick and choose likewise like people who are holy don't believe in witches as to hot pot things are reletive so going through help is needed as for me same routine is needed for me to be an "sane" as you see the word is focused and it means in a fast world you gotta keep up with the demands and that's what should be due in my consiousness.
