That Feeling

Though hard to explain I believe I can with some accuracy describe to you the sensation of transcendence. At first it's like a kick in the chest with a shot of adrenaline and your whole body instinctively leaps forward and in that moment it's like your essence or soul or whatever you want to call it is being pulled away. I tend to think of it as a somewhat more ghostlike figure given that the sensation you feel from being pulled away is somewhat cold and fresh like morning air on a mountain after a fresh snow and all is calm.

For a brief period it's almost like you can sense three separate versions of yourself, not in an extra dimensional sense but more of a distorted extension like having extra limbs in different places. As this feeling continues you obtain a broader sense of your surroundings and in a manner connect with them in a way that sadly I can not describe however it comes close to being extensions of yourself and you can feel the weight of every item though none of it seems heavy it is all the same like having the world on your shoulders.

This leads me to question many greek mythologies, not just atlas, and classic martial arts techniques that have been fabled far beyond belief. If I could retain my connection with the world while not in this state it would merely be a matter of learning to manipulate it and we would find much truth to old legends. This leads me to once again believe that ancient man knew a great many things that we've forgotten or simply weren't passed down, though for what reason I'm unsure, perhaps some things are better left forgotten...


  1. I know what you saying. I had similar experience long time ago.

  2. I think I know what you're talking about. I used to experience it all the time when I was about 12 and it scared the hell out of me. I would try my hardest to return to "normal" so to speak.
