In Fight Club (1999), Narrator speaks about his health problem:

Narrator: For six months, I couldn't sleep. I couldn't sleep...with insomnia, nothing's real. Everything's far away. Everything's a copy of a copy of a copy.

What does "Everything's a copy of a copy of a copy" mean?


People used to make copies of documents with something called a photocopier, instead of scanning and printing. They made poor quality copies. The narrator feels confused; tired. The world looks dull; faint; blurry.
