What if tearing a little bit of this real world?

Normally, modern humans do not ruminate and refuse to ruminate; when we do, it's often a manifestation of gastrointestinal digestive abnormalities. However, when faced with the concepts of time (past and future), memory (reality and fiction; recording and alluding) and subject and object, how about trying to break the current scene and then stand back and ask questions? Does this metaphysical re-chewing action help the digestion and restore the machine function back? Or is action on the real level unnecessary, just a moment of conception that could serve as a temporary break?

Influenced by the post-refactoring, pragmatism and uselessness, they are observing/processing/cleaning up the products of the rapid development of information and materials era in different ways, giving a second chance for everyone to think about what is really essential in both the real and spiritual worlds.
