Anyone who has been bored, which is everyone, knows it is a pretty unbearable state of being. We resort to all types of diversions to try to avoid it. Boredom is a lack of interest, a lack of feeling, and a lack of connection towards life and people. When you are bored you are not plugged in. It’s no accident that people who feel bored often try to solve their dilemma by going to sleep. This is an attempt to eradicate consciousness because the conscious state of being bored is so unnerving. The parallel in depression is committing suicide. Death is often referred to as the eternal sleep or eternal rest. A common expression when we are free to do as we please is to ‘kill time’.
