Ontological dysphoria

   The Anthropic principle tells us that Physics is supervenient on Biology, Biology on Discourse, Discourse on Rent Seeking Availability Cascades, which are themselves supervenient on random stuff  like coprogphagic Celebrity hysteresis effects - and so everybody almost all the time is in a state of ontological dysphoria- i.e. feels they are living in the wrong Universe.

   But this begs the question- is there any sense to the phrase 'shit happens'- as expressing the fundamental empirical truth of lived life- which does not also imply that intersubjectivity is a monadology of incompossiblie Universes whose harmony is pre-established by a fractal whose human form might be some utter shite like Piers Morgan or Simon Cowell or whatever?
