Ignorance is like being deep in a metaphorical well. From the bottom, your world looks fleeting and unconnected. There is nothing to count on except regularity of an experience. Since you’re alive, your basic needs are being met. To include air, sustenance, love/hate, elimination. Just like in the OA. Not necessarily imminently in harm’s way.
Or like being limited in access to brain function.
Or whose brain function is crippled by fear.
Whether one is comfortable or not with this state depends on the structures, which seem invisible to you, around you.
If your world is pretty organized and predictable, even from the bottom of the well, life is basically good.
On the other hand, if you’re at the bottom of a well that well you know, anything but the above, life is more frightening and unpredictable.
Funny thing is no matter what, at that moment in time, you are a being who’s alive enough to think and feel.
