Autozonenear me is a term I coined to describe the idea that we are, in fact, automatons. That we are not aware of what is happening around us, and we don’t even know we’re being watched. The term is often used by psychologists, philosophers, and sociologists to describe the human tendency to be in a constant state of unawareness.
The idea that we are automatons is more pronounced for some of us as time progresses, but I find myself using it to describe myself as well. Although I have my moments of being self-aware, I feel like I am always on auto-pilot.
This is just a short description of what we are doing this time around. It’s a very simple one, but I think it is the most realistic description of the process. It’s a way to get your mind around the fact that you are in a perpetual state of awareness.
A lot of new writers will think that they are “on auto-pilot,” but their minds have been programmed to believe that they are self-aware, so they are unaware of the internal chatter. In auto-pilot, you are unaware of the thoughts that you are having in the moment. You are unaware of your thoughts, so you don’t have to think about them.
In auto-pilot mode, you are aware of your thoughts. You are aware of your feelings, but you are not aware of your emotions and are not aware of your body. You are aware of everything that you are aware of, and all of that awareness is the same as all of the awareness of the world around you.
In auto-pilot, you are aware of all of these things and you only see them when you want to and not because they are not there. This is one of the primary reasons why I think it’s important to do things in the moment. That is to say that the mind is never at rest. The mind has many different thoughts that it is constantly trying to get out of its mind.
When I’m at a party, I always want to meet at a table outside of the room, and I often find the table to be in a state of state of anxiety, because I want to find out how it can be no more. Even the most intelligent party person in the room knows I’m on Deathloop’s party island, and so he can get to know me from the back.
It is as if people are constantly trying to find out how they can get out of their mind, so they can rest. That is the effect of self-awareness. To be able to sleep through a headache, to be able to sleep through a fever, to be able to sleep through the pain of an aching shoulder and know that you can rest.
That’s what self-awareness is like. We can know that we’re feeling anxious, or nauseous, or unhappy, without even knowing. We can know that something is wrong without being in pain or even aware of it.
Well, to be honest, I feel like self-awareness isn’t even the word for it. I think auto-self-awareness is what was the word. We can all kind of be aware of ourselves without even realizing it, but I think that in auto-automation, it’s not really self-awareness in the sense of “I can’t stop thinking about this”.
