What do you call it when you feel peaceful but seemingly empty, it's really weird to experience. You know those days when you have those thoughts that are empty but peaceful and really, really deep, for example, a few of the thoughts I've had while feeling this way are: "What if nothing ever matters and everything is just an illusion." "If life on earth is just a pitstop how come some people have more than one?" and other things like feeling warm and fuzzy but at the same time cold and hard, or thinking back on memories wondering if any of them ever mattered then sometimes missing them, and just like reflecting on everything within minutes of thinking about it???

(Note: I'm only 13 so if you have a response please make it easier for me to understand thank you!)

'Removed' defined as: separate or remote in space, time, or character.

Etymology removed (v.) Early 14c., "move, take away, dismiss," from Old French removoir "move, stir; leave, depart; take away," from Latin removere "move back or away, take away, put out of view, subtract," from re- "back, away" (see re-) + movere "to move" (from PIE root *meue- "to push away"). Related: Removed; removing (www.etymonline.com › word › remove (https://www.etymonline.com/word/remove)

In use: I often feel removed from everything going on around me (https://ludwig.guru/s/i+feel+removed).




having lost one's ideals, illusions, or false ideas about someone or something; disenchanted

Incidentally, disenchanted would also work in this case.
