"The following is what I experienced. A sensation of expectant awareness, excited stillness, and a pervasive, overwhelmingly unnameable foreboding which resulted not in fear but in acceptance. Basically, what I would call a rare and enhanced state of consciousness, achievable through unreproducible (unsellable, unfilmable, untouchable) constellations of light, movement, and language, wherein most any feat of empathetic mental flexibility is possible." -- Eric Conroe
