Just my thoughts :
linear perception has space/time locked into a paradoxical loop of various levels of decay to reality as a whole.
Due to the abundant amount of chaotic emotional energy, and perception of that chaos, has manifested a loop into reality for experience (embedded in the human psyche)
Constant bombardment of the same reality, based off of emotional perception, can and will cause a variation of decay in each instance.
If decay is constructive, then that variation will continue, as the decay has the building mechanics to destroy and rebuild the cycle
If decay is destructive, then annihilation of the reality as a whole will take place, in degrees of magnetic influence. Leaving trace elements of said reality (memories)
