Tuning into someone else's consciousness (taking in steady stream of input from his/her assumed environment ) just opened up a new dimension for me. For a brief moment I was him. I was an animal on the street and had all his pains. And then I tried empathizing with a traffic signal beggar and I stayed with her a little longer too long past driving my car.
It just felt weird to abandon myself and be someone else even if in mind. But again for some reason after this experience I feel way more connected to this world.
Well hope I am not becoming too weird.
