^oh wow gandhi! what was the conversation? v interesting.
back in grade 1 i would generally try to be very still and see if this world would slow down and let me go/rise/do something weird/disturb the physics?.
i tried to move into other peoples minds and see how they (outside the bus) would be seeing me and my school bus when stationery (at a crossing) and me staring at them and them looking at me then we both would be the same person! lol i did this with anyone i saw out of the school bus or car window early morning on way to school. interestingly this way i could imagine everyone to be just me looking back at the previous body, everytime i moved from one person to the next the previous person would be in still motion until everything slowed down and stood still. that was the theory. but the problem is everyone kept moving/looking here and there so i couldn't take it too far in my head LOL
i lost this habit/ability by 2nd or 3rd grade. but oddly even today i take the window seat in trains and try to repeat subconsciously a shadow of the above.
hmmm just a thought... maybe thats why people stand still in prayers or funerals... specially funerals... to let the soul depart peacefully and help its detachment by everyone being still!
edit: mabe thats why there are repeat memorial services say for those have died in war, where a large part of a particular area people are still. so as to let the wandering soul cool off the agitation and it be conducive for it to leave the lower astral planes.?? just a thought building on and on..
