A lot of the time it seems like there's not much to do in life. It seems that the only reason why most people are still alive might be because of the higher power. People opening their third eyes. It feels like there is too little positivity in the world, but then sometimes that feels completely cancelled out. Perhaps without all these spiritual things, life would mean absolutely nothing. Many people I'm sure have struggled to see what exactly there is to be positive about. Maybe that's why people spend a large portion of their lives through prayers.
To some extent it's almost as if things in entertainment will mean much more to people than most things in real life ever will. With the way life treats everybody (with depression, anxiety, overthinking, etc.), which is really more important? Most people probably won't find much in life itself (without all the entertainment products), to be happy about. Maybe this higher power is just something for people to believe in. Which eventually gives off a placebo effect.
