Level 5:
Total loss of visual connection with reality. The senses cease to function in the normal way. Total loss of ego. Merging with space, other objects or the universe. The loss of reality becomes so severe that it defies explanation. The earlier levels are relatively easy to explain in terms of measureable changes in perception and thought patterns. This level is different in that the actual universe within which things are normally perceived, ceases to exist! Satori enlightenment (and other such labels).
- Taken from Erowid

I think this is what you're looking for. I've never experienced this myself but according to plenty of people it is the sense that You no longer exist but are interwoven throughout all things and that time and any individuation cease to exist as well. Look up threads about The Thumbprint for really interesting accounts of ego loss.

Very simple really. :rolleyes:
You are everything. When you are in ego loss, you know that you are everything. That all is you. You realize that the you which normally functions and deals with people in social situations is but a set of likes and dislikes. The ego itself is what makes "you" seem so real, but in reality you are not just the "you" that you think you are. You are everything else too. The death of the ego is becoming one with the universe and realizing that all of it is the greatest thing there ever was or will be.

Like I said, it is very simple. Just not to the regular socially imprinted person. Tripping takes me there every time... :grin:


--------------------
No ONE wants to know the ultimate TRUTH, as soon as YOU find IT out, YOU want to forget IT.

You are everything's way of feeling itself.

Happy Schwag, everygodly!
