    This is so true... Speed is a way of not wanting to confront reality because of fear of what that reality would entail. Its also therefore a way of avoiding responsibility for the consequences of reality. My personal escape mechanism of denial is not speed but sleep, which has very similar consequences; of withdrawing from life and living and losing touch with whats happening around. I have experienced this speed from others however, and know how it feels like to constantly try to catch up or be left behind!
