I did an experiment one day where I did everything randomly or 'off' my normal way of doing things. I started by putting my left shoe on first. Sometimes I would change the increments in steps I took or wait 2 more seconds before talking. I also interupted my thought process a couple of times just to not be able to make a conclusion on something.

What I learned- Doing this makes you feel like shit for some reason, you feel not you or something. It lets you appreaciate your ways.

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

That's very interesting, Murex! I never tried that experiment, but it sounds very reasonable to me that it fucks with your sense of self. I have been entertaining the idea lately that the type or level of consciousness I experience depends on which causal agents are involved in determining my actions. I might try obeying a pair of dice just to test this, but it sounds a little dangerous :smile:

Cool stuff Murex. I have been doing that kind of thing ever since I was about 15 and still do it somewhat today. When I was a teenager I spent a year writing with my left hand every Wednesday. I spent some time doing the shoe thing. Two years ago I focused on my hearing and as much as I was able consciously listened hard to background noises forcing them into the front of my consciousness. I also spent a year eating things off menus in restaurants that I had never eaten before.

It never made me feel bad though. I felt free from something.
