    A few days ago after laying out some tooth paste on my brush I shouted out POWER SLUG. No idea why... took a long hard look at myself in the mirror after. This appears to be the most relevant thread for getting that off my chest.

    I keep thinking I'm a Sim. And guage my life around the Sims way of doing stuff. Like, "If I talk to my friend for twenty more minutes, our relationship points will increase." Or "If I practice the piano, I'll gain a creativity skill point." Not really, but you know.

    Big Sky feels sad when he sees the children scream and cry
    But the Big Sky is too big to let it get him down.

    Big Sky looks down on all the people who think they got problems
    They get depressed and they hold their head in their hands and cry.
    People lift up their hands and they look up to the Big Sky
    But the Big Sky is too big to sympathize."

    This happens to me every other day. I just take a step back mentally and observe everything around me which is really vivid. It feels like I'm seeing everything in the 3rd person when it happens. I don't think I made sense but it isn't easy to explain. Btw op can you explain a bit further what happens to you?
    It doesn't "happen" to me either, I just consciously decide to enter that state. I can also "render" myself in third person. I also often appraise my mental and physical state, even an inventory. It's ****in weird.

    I do this too. We don't feel self concious in video games and we analyse the situation constantly to adapt to the way we should be playing. I think it's very useful for situations you're uncomfortable in. It's like when you have a conversation options in a game. You know where you want the conversation to go, and you're not worried about embaressing yourself etc.

    There is also that kind of observation feeling which I'd liken to a video game too, where you look down at your feet and reposition them a bit, and although you're just looking through your eyes it's like your observing from the third person. It's a nice feeling. It feels empowering.

    I used to have/do a similar thing a couple of years ago. Seems to have stopped now though, more's the pity

    so many crazy people :eek:
    You're one of them, there's no center in anything, no sanity, only differing degrees of madness. We cannot know things, only believe things, and believe we know things, and believe that we believe that we believe things. ...

    OP - this is one angle to view things from:

    Hmm, so how exactly do you do it? It usually happens to me when I'm either really relaxed or concentrating. Believe it or not, I've once had one of them where I was able to just travel to places.

    Either that or I'm crazy
