As I go through my Project, which starts when i wake up and even continues when i sleep (it simply involves *noticing* – see below)* – one strange side effect I’ve noticed is this:
Everything feels like smooth glass.
My skin, everything I touch – even this very keyboard in front of me.
and food tastes and smells great (although I figured that was due to quitting cigarettes, which is probably is)
So I just decided to look it up and see if it means anything.
I came across this:
[…] altered perception of space and time
positive basic mood,
changed meaning of percepts,
facilitated recollection or imagination
significantly increased self-confidence,
sensitivity and emotional excitation.”
and.. well… this is part of a description for the rave drug Ecstasy.
Just doing what I’m doing.
I’m guessing I accidentally tripped over methods to naturally increase levels of Serotonin in the brain.
Yes, I will definitely put this together in a book. Or ten. Or do *something* with the knowledge I’m getting. ‘Cause it’s way too useful for me to keep to myself.

*(the Project involves gently noticing myself and everything around me at the same time while I go about my activities – that’s my main data collection – as well as note taking: ”write it down before you forget – and you have only a few seconds to do it in before it’s gone”)
