The Truman Show Delusion


Inspired by a story from

The New Yorker Presents:
Annals of Psychology: Unreality Star

produced by Jed Rothstein
based on the article by Andrew Marantz

”One night, probably about a month later, as everyone else is going to bed, I decide to climb up onto the roof. As the sun is starting to come up, something has really turned a corner in my mind, and I have this sort of realization. There are cameras everywhere. I’m being broadcast. I’m essentially being watched by everyone probably around the whole world. “

”Other delusions tend to be more narrow… Truman Show delusion, the whole world is involved. “

”The line between reality and unreality continues to blur. “
