I settled once again in my terrestrial coordinates, but my mind blasted in to outer space. I left my body and looked back, watched my flesh blow away like dust, my bare ribs jutting towards the sky, my corpse a shriveled husk of bones. I traveled to the end of the universe and touched its velvety edge. I spiraled through galaxies with animals of the jungle and teeth-bearing reptiles and ancient tribes of people I had never seen before, but they were mine. I had a euphoric feeling of unity with everything throughout space and time, an acute appreciation and awareness of existence – of the beauty of breathing and being and nature.
