No matter what a listicle of weird facts might try to tell you at 4 AM on a cheap website riddled with adverts, nobody actually believes they live on a Truman Show. A few or so shrinks have tried to sensationalize the idea in recent years, but only due to the self-reports of a few asswipes who, just can’t get it together, despite nothing being wrong with them. No, you shouldn’t feel bad for these people. Nor should you demonize me for my contempt for their stupid idea of mild obsession. They do not believe they live on Truman shows. How do I know? Well, what would you do, Truman? Report your horrifying discovery to your therapist who is a cast member on your TV show? Right. That’s never happened. What has happened is that some people have said to their therapists that they overthink the idea, and shrinks in turn have presumed a potential pathology towards delusions in these cases. This of course means nothing. Truman show conspiracies indicate a rare but bonafide overvalued idea. And bad content for Facebook science pages. That is the only conclusion.
