That's also an excellent way to put it!
I'd add just one thing... there is a point where a consciousness can be receiving no visual input what-so-ever. This would be the point that is most commonly referred to as "The Void". It would be when you, as a consciousness is experiencing absolutely nothing... just you.
I'd call it the lack of a reality frame.
For myself, I don't see much separation between this reality and any other reality we might experience.
Voids.. I dont know what to make of them.. Ive had weird experience from a void and it may of completely changed things for me.
I was stuck in a void (well not stuck.. I should rather say LOST as I could leave. I was in a void and didnt know which way to go..or phase or however one wishes to call it to move out from it. I sat and sat in this timeless void (felt like I could of stayed there forever if i wanted) ..not knowing what to do..didnt know which way to go out.. it was different directions could of taken me to different places..nothing to be seen thou.. just a knowing of that like worm holes which couldnt be seen or dimensional zones all around the void out of it. I ended up hoping for the best and coming out of it, then I woke up, well rather this body did.. I was lucid so continuous flow of waking consciousness to this body once I'd made my choice, I then just found myself in this body and just opened my eyes and was so so confused as I hadnt ended up in the right place, the place i knew..
I'd lost this bodies waking memories and didnt know my own children, they WERENT my children. It took days to get all my memories real life?? memories back.. I like had to "download" the memories from the bodies consciousness (interestingly a well known OBEr has same kind of experiences with downloading info he recieves from sources which are given to him while OBE ... Im sure him and I have done the same thing).
The house I woke up in.. this reality..wasnt the home I very vaguely remembered coming from, it was wrong. The children here (this bodies children).. i didnt know, I didnt know their names, nothing at all about then, I didnt have any emotions at all towards them.. all I knew is that they were this bodies children.. so I had to come to know them. First downloaded the info on them into my consciousness from somewhere (it came with a downloading which included other info too.. it was like a flow of info which started at one point and then each part of info i got spread out and lead to other info streams..till all the info I needed was there. I then had to get used to them..taking days.. till I had feelings like one would for ones children. It was like my responsibility to take the children on as they belonged to this body, a role I had to do.
Thou this experience happened to me a long time back.. Im still confused over it and believe I may of ended up in a different body to what I'd previously been in... all due to becoming lost/ forgetting something.. while in a void.
Those voids are the biggest mystery to me out there. They dont fit with reality or something or maybe are entry points to all realities. You can exit very different to how you went in (i dont know if all voids are like that or just certain ones or one). Did my consciousness do a body swap due to the void? I consider myself a possible "walk-in" due to this void.
So what was my experience actually.. a case of amnesia lasting days so I didnt know who I was or anything else about my family and life??? I forgot to say.. I didnt even know my name at first or who I was. (Ive researched that when I tried to work my experience out.. apparently that is very very rare, not at all likely). What about the knowing and remembering thou vague.. of a different house to the one this body lived in?? (maybe in amnesia it is possible to believe dreams over reality???? I dont have a clue). All I know is something happened and I believe it wasnt a case of medical amnesia but something to do with the void I experienced when in lucid state.
While I was in the actual void.. I think I may of actually known whoever I was. The only confusion I had while in the void was of the right way out from that hence why I spend such a long time in there trying to figure it out. So my memory of myself was wiped on leaving the void.
