Escape from reality
The expression “escape from reality” depends on what is considered to be reality.
There is an arbitrary reality, imposed as the only reality, and there are alternative realities in which it is possible to enter and exit at will.
An arbitrary reality is like a prison from which one cannot escape. If someone considers the arbitrary reality as the only reality, or is having a good time in such reality, then there is no reason to escape anywhere.
If however you are getting tired of arbirtrary reality, then you can try to escape from it. If you do so, you can expect some problems, including some people blaming you of “escaping from reality”.
The paradox is that those who reproach you for escaping reality are likely to have previously evaded from other realities, so that in order to justify or rather forget their escape they do everything to convince others and themselves that the one in which they are now is the only reality.
The major paradox is that at a certain stage everybody who is in this arbitrary reality is going to escape, when they die.
In short, rather than blaming others of escaping from reality, it is better to mind your own reality.
