>"That’s just perfectly normal paranoia. Everyone in the universe has that"
>This is a quote from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Arthur Dent spoke of a feeling that there was something going on in the universe that nobody would tell him about. “Oh no” says Zaphod Beeblebrox, “That’s just perfectly normal paranoia. Everyone in the universe has that”.
This feeling is what films like The Truman Show and The Matrix play on. But does anyone know what that feeling is? Is it really universal? If so what causes it and what is it’s function?
