You contradict yourself.

You say that nothing exists outside of your little dirt path, but there are ocviously trees that are not on the dirt path. You also say that "tress that span mile of earth that may not even exist.), which does not make since. you can see trees, so you therefore know that they exist. Also, why would you add trees to the miles of earth that may not exist? You just put an object into an otherwise profound statement.

And the dirt-path doesn't seem where real, both and looks and in practical sense. Why go through the trouble of detailing the trees, if not to add striations or pebbles into the path? Also, 2 things about the dirt path other than the details.

1. What is up with the unnatural curve at the end of path on the picture? The placement of the trees suggest that you are trying to show about 20 feet in span in your drawing. The curve and size of trail may be because you are trying to show that the trail goes on into the distance, but the rest of your drawing does not suggest so, so it looks...strange...the picture as a whole.

2. Why does a good portion of the trail go underneath the trees? In a practical setting, you would creat a path to include trees, because that would be an obstruction in the path. And even if the trees have grown into the path, the path by the trees would have been grown over as well, being that it is not being used as much as the rest of the path.
~A responce to this will be most welcome :)

"nothing outside my little dirt path" - i mean that there's the path, the border surrounding it (blocking it off from everything else) outside the dirt path (referring to past the border that marks it as a path) is where there is nothing. also, metaphor. saying that outside this piece of something that is so clearly marked there is nothing because existence must be clearly marked or it's a freedom not allowed

"why would you add trees to miles of earth that may not exist?" - because i can and i would because i felt i should so i did. the trees dont get in the way of the path so there they stay

"the dirt path doesn't seem real, both in looks and in practical sense." - that's because the path isn't real. its a drawing i did using a program i found online.

"why go through the trouble of detailing the trees if not to add striations or pebbles into the path?" - the trees are the larger picture and ive made them stand out more than the path. i didn't put pebbles on the dirt path because its a dirt path, not a pebble-strewn path

"what is up with the unnatural curve at the end of path on the picture?" - im not trying to show 20 feet to span the drawing. it curves because when i sleep my eyes contort the ground to show me something that is far away by bringing it towards me. the ground is bent, not to show perspective, but to show the way the dreams contort to shape themselves more properly in my eyes

"why does a good portion of the trail go underneath the trees?" - the path was there. a tree decided to show up and plant itself there. dont judge the tree on where it sits or dont judge the path for not wanting to move or leave the tree. every part of the path is used by something so it continues to exist as a dirt path

this small drawing and a quote from my book cause so much confusion and confliction in your words. maybe the world isn't as complex as you see it: not everything needs to be logical or explained to match your understanding. sometimes the candy you take isn't the flavour you thought
