As for not getting where this comes from: On the visible levels, you did miss some of the non-public data (for example, I was initially contacted by PB via PM and in that exchange began to see some underneath patterns in how she was trying to engage with me) and you certainly weren't privy to my internal tracking process or my dialogue with my INFP partner.
There are also the data offered by some other people in this thread, but I imagine you have a different read on those data than I do.
When it comes to "now vs before": I can say that for me it wasn't a simple linear chronological trajectory at all - there were layers happening simultaneously.
Re: your read on my words (seeing someone else as the source of how I experience them): for me, in a description like that, I use the word "feeling" to describe a visceral kind of sense-perception. In other words: the word "feeling" as I use it there names a way that Ni-Se communicates information to me about what is actually happening
Linking back to our dialogue thus far about Ni and your plane metaphor etc: I don't expect you to trust me on this, and I won't ask you to try to see what I'm picking up here. We're not in any sort of relationship in which such trust on your part would make sense. From my end, that doesn't change that I am picking up what I am picking up and seeing a certain configuration here using that (Ni-Se perception) as some of the data. Seems to me that we (you and I) are extremely unlikely to come to consensus on this, and I'm actually really ok with that. One way I see it is this: Whatever the actual reality is, I think reality itself has its own grounded power beyond wordplay, arguments, interpretations, perspectives, etc. At my core, I do trust that power - quite a bit in fact
