@DeeperThrill Once you can do these things, experiment endlessly.

Some fun tricks I have found:

- Pretend that your brain is in your foot. Observe how that changes your perception of your sensory inputs. Imagine that everything about your experience of your mind is happening elsewhere
@DeeperThrill - try to feel as though the sensory inputs of you having a head are actually *enveloped by* your consciousness, rather than the other way around.

Your mind is actually occuring around the outside of your head, with your head just being a part of it
@DeeperThrill - try to spatially “locate” your thoughts. Where precisely are they happening? When you have a thought that seems like words, how is that not in your ears?
If you have a song stuck in your head, is that phantom sound? Try imagining that you have a pause button. See what happens.
@DeeperThrill - try to feel as if, rather than being upright, that you are actually upside down and gravity is pulling you upwards into your seat. I can only describe this as “doing a flip” with your spirit or mind / whatever - you will get body sensations like those of doing flips in a pool
@DeeperThrill To some extent you can intentionally emulate certain pathway activations in your brain.

A song stuck in your head is the auditory version of imagining someone’s face

Any array of sensory perceptions can be emulated - this happens naturally when we dream

@DeeperThrill As you familiarize yourself with certain emotional states, and recognize their aspects within consciousness, you can summon facsimiles of them at will.

If you don’t see how this could be useful, you should start over at step 1
