Ah, while I don’t have that, I do have something similar that I have to stay defensive on regarding the present moment zone and attentiveness:
For me it’s an overactive “anticipation mechanism”. I see/viscerally feel/experience disaster many hundreds or thousands of times in a day.
The experience lasts the shortest of moments. but it’s visual or auditory but mainly my body preparing for it but I have to hold firm and not show it.
Imagine ducking as a beam falls on you without showing that you’re ducking and that’s what it feels like; a quick “preparedness configuration” of the body muscles but just a tug.
Sometimes I talk my way through it quickly or berate myself, but I move away from the sensation as quickly as possible as it’s uncomfortable.
Oh I agree. We’re likely “it”. When I see science fiction, no matter how fantastical the creatures, they’re still variations of human to me because they were written by humans for human consumption.
