It, quite literally, reflects you back to you all the time. (Pretend you're looking into a mirror all day long except the mirror distorts what you see to look like other people and objects.) You don't really have to pretend; that's what is going on. Other planes of existence don't have the same mirroring effect, ie. you can fool yourself and not see the denial right away... or at all.
Physicality will stick it in your face, usually to the tune of "ouch!"
In our little corner of the galaxy, consciousness is playing with denial. It's finishing up it's experience with it and moving back to conscious creatorship.
This reminds me of spending time with my brother. Whereas I'm good at and enjoy academics (majored in Applied Mathematics with a focus on Quantum Mechancis, and a less practical set of classes would be difficult to imagine), Ian prefers to just work with his hands, and became a diesel mechanic. I'm still more comfortable in the academic spheres, and fortunately for my self-esteem academic-types like to think themselves superior to mere physical laborers. But when faced with a problem, the academics do things like Review The Theory or Form a Committee or Discuss In A Panel. The mechanics do things like Figure Out What's Not Working And Fix It.
I love hanging out at the bus garage with my brother, because when the light goes out, they don't moan and design longer-lasting lightbulbs and demand government reparations - they replace the damn bulb!
