    the desolation of spirit that happens when you lose what you imagine that you possess...imagination ruling your psyche builds elaborate world views and a tower of babel that comes apart as the multitude of your selves becomes apparent and even your tiny creature comforts, their loss, is world shattering when they are no longer available...LC is so spot on when it comes to describing feelings

    A very taunting mocking of that person who has lost something that they imagine is needful for themselves. A wonderfully accurate description of the desolation one feels when their attachment to a thing is broken off. Their mind is torturing them over the loss and they asked for this by loving the wrong things.
