Denying we are in denial

We fall into the infinite regression and self-perpetuating feedback loop of denying we are in denial, which is a self-created strain of madness.

This is a form of self-deception, dissociation and psychic blindness in which we are ultimately lying to and hiding from ourselves. At a certain point this process entrenches itself within the psyche such that it develops sufficient momentum to seemingly become its own self-generating, autonomous entity.
