Have you gone into a "hacker trance" or "email trance"? It sometimes
happens to me as I use a computer: everything that is outside the virtual
desktop fades away, and the world becomes information. I don't think about
my chair, how I write on the keyboard or move the mouse, I just exist as a
disembodied consciousness influencing the digital world by will alone.
This is the kind of existence I would like to use in my "working mode".

this happens to me while painting to, and even sometimes just in life- when
it gets really interesting- it isnt really the same as not having
physicality, it is IMO, a function OF physicality.
