felt more true to life. the black lodge is just a bit of silliness. comedy dwarf cavorting about speaking in a funny voice.

I think the campiness is part of why it works so well as horror. The Upside-Down is "nightmarish" in the conventional sense of "really horrible", but it's not actually like something you'd see in a real nightmare. Not any I can remember, anyway. Whereas the Black Lodge, in fact all the more horrible scenes in Lynch, has a true hint of nightmare or hallucination about it.

feeling normal let alone feeling good is such a tenuous goldilocks state. its so fragile. having a horror trip a year ago really reminded me of that. you can get knocked off your perch at any time

ive talked about it plenty before when your calibration gets knocked off and sounds are too loud and too grating. too 'internal' too close. things like that.

how you feel about yourself, how you feel about other people, how threatening the outside world seems and etc etc

If you've ever seen Being John Malkovich, it can feel a bit like that.... like I'm a passenger in a body and sort of watching what it's doing from inside.
Eeech. I know this feeling - happened the first time I did mushrooms. I assume what you've got is a far milder version of that, or you'd be totally non-functional. Sounds shitty all the same and I hope you can eventually get past it.

anxiety doesnt seem an accurate enough definition for me. im not happy with it. its more profound than that. im pretty sure ive have analagous things and have had something not totally disimilar for the last year and anxiety is too fuzzy and general. we will invent a new category

Make that 4. Was like being a being within my own body. Looking from the perspective of someone or thing inside my own skull, the eye holes were like 2 holes cut out of a big box like when you were a kid.

i think of it like a graphic equaliser and if some levels get turned up too much it becomes intolerably uncomfortable
