It seems we can point-blank ignore logical reality at times; most often when we are attached to some source of happiness out of fear of possibly having to lead a life of emptiness and depression.
For example, a nicotine addict will ignore the fact there is not one healthy or positive argument to be had for smoking cigarettes. The attachment to the nicotine consumption process just over-rides the logic faculties and false arguments are generated from the subconscious. The cravings for more nicotine are very strong when one has been consuming it.
In the West, a woman can often brag about the number of sexual encounters she has had - the more encounters, the more of an ego she can have. If one was to suggest that she is making prostitution sound fashionable, and that she is possibly aspiring to be a prostitute, then she could very well begin to get upset. It is apparently more difficult for a woman to feel feminine and empowered by appealing to the sides of men which are honourable and upstanding, rather than allow men to treat her as a sex object - a feminine one in most cases - in return for resources.
A person in a romantic relationship may say that they intend to split up with their partner even though true romantic love was present to begin with. If one was to state that if true romantic love was present, then that true romantic love would still be present, as it should be present until they die (Romeo & Juliette/Tristan & Isolde, etc.), then they may become upset that one is undermining their experiences of love in life, and their historical attitude towards their partner. It is more difficult to recognise that by saying "I love you romantically" is actually akin to a contract of marriage, because it infers "til death do us part", rather than viewing romantic love as something more like the feeling of sexual attraction one can feel for one's partner which can fluctuate within a relationship.
These willed ignorances we can carry around can apparently cause us to feel confused when the systems around us generate situations which we hadn't predicted, and which we can't afford to learn about and predict in the future unless we find the courage to break down our willed ignorance.
Like a projectile flying at us on a trajectory aligned with the 'blind spot' in our field of vision (where the optic nerve hits the eyeball), we can be hit by an event without ever seing it coming. If we can't find the courage to look beyond our ignorances and investigate any illogicality with action and motivation to change our perceptions, then we can begin to feel paranoid that there is something or someone manipulating our reality. There can be no other answer; becasue ignorance has been thrown out of the equation. We convince ourselves that we know all the facts - so the reality of the situation is beyond our grasp - beyond anyone else's grasp - it's in the hands of God.
If we go with the idea that someone is manipulating our reality, then it seems entirely logical that we can begin to believe in Gods, hidden forces, telepathy, etc.
If we find the courage and motivation to face the logical reality within which we live, then everything remains the same - what we see is what things are. It is only whether we have discovered techniques to practically face the empty depression associated with things like craving something to consume when there is nothing available, upholding righteousness in the face of overwhelming opposition, and truly giving our heart away romantically, can we remain steadfast and sane.
