>>Is it surprising that people would fantasize about being someone else? Isn't it common to fantasize about doing things that you don't want to do?
It is not surprising at all, but logically this means that you are fantasizing about someone else, not about yourself.
as instead of felling stuff you just think how it would feel and look like.
I would say that there can be either first or third person fantasy. where you either interact with everyone else somehow or you see yourself from outside and whats happens but in that case you cannot have an authentic experience.
As if for example someone blinds your eyes you are still perfectly capable to see everything whast is going on.
or even if you faint or even die you are still perfectly capable to "experience" whast is happening to your supposedly dead body and continue as if nothing happened.
Also even if you lose body parts or genitals it is nothing different than if they are still attached to your body If some girl is sucking your severed dick in the fantasy it feels exactly same as if it is still attached to you except that you get better view :)
So instead of actually imagining how it would feel if that was happening to you, you are thinking how it would look like.
If that was first person fantasy if you get blinded you should imagine being in the darkness while being poked pushed etc.
If you die that should instantly end your fantasy.
And if you lose your body parts you should be totally focused on the pain Instead of trying to jerk off your severed dick.
That would make everything pretty boring.
There is no logical problems Being invincible action hero from either perspective. and the only reason why you don't actually want to happen that in the real life is because the real world is not fantasy and here you will face rists and consequences
If you were actually invincible and had the ability to restore the world to the desired state I think there would be no problems shooting people for real and blowing things up. maybe it would be disappointing that other people behave not as you woud like.
