a cool concept: a person who can detect incredibly minute details with a sense, be it smell or hearing or sight or whatever, but theyre ALWAYS wrong about what it means in context
"i see your shirt is fraying at the ends when you lift your arms so.....do you have a cat at home. "
"i can smell lead from inside that building.....what if its a pencil factory,"

something that really bothers me that I see a weird amount of the time is well-meaning people making posts that are meant to generally reassure others that the world around them is real/bad delusions are not.
E.g. im borrowing from another site:
"If you’re reading this, you’re real.
You’re not in a coma, you’re not dreaming, you’re not in a simulation. I’m real and I’m telling you that you too, are indeed real."
Like. I get the good intentions here. i know it's supposed to be reassuring. but if i'm not already delusional in that way and don't need that reassurance, it can actually be triggering?
It's like someone telling you "don't worry, I'm not stealing" out of the blue. Like, I *wasn't* worried about it, but *now* I am because that's weird to just say when I didn't ask for reassurance.
Like of course I'm in a simulation if i'm getting people specifically and unpromptedly reassuring me I'm not. :V
(thankfully thats not set in for me rn)
