Check out some of the history behind Edgar Allan Poe  

 

 

 

The boundaries which divide life from death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and the other begins?

Edgar Allan Poe 

From this quote, you can see he thought about death more than a little bit. He probably questioned the logic behind the thoughts of those who were considered the top minds of the time. 

You can also see a parallel thought in the next quote that he also suffered a ton of personal torment throughout his life. 

Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality 

Edgar Allan Poe 

At times in life we see the mundane things that we do on a regular basis as a grounds for creating an INSANE SELF! Think about it, the definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over while expecting different results. 

I don't think he was the kind of guy who enjoyed doing the same things over and over, but I also think he was also the type that didn't see the good in many situations as well, but that's just my opinion. 

I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.

 

He understood that reality is nothing more than a illusion created by us. My perception of life and yours aren't the same even though we could be staring at the same things. 

All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
