    Non-Substance Induced Altered State.

    Describe a time or activity that alters your consciousness without drugs.

    Highway driving nearly always does for me- maybe it's the motor droning on and on and I start thinking...

    It the same way my computer fan and concentrating on a program, image or 3d model does.

    Seems like it's always my wife that breaks me out it and it always feels like a violent act.

    That, and meditative synesthesia (music -> visual, in my case).

    highways do that for me too.

    staying awake for a long time.

    entering data into excel for a long time.

    I always feel different after I've been in water, whether it's rain, or a bath, an ocean, or a pool. Very distinct feeling-- loosened, a bit shaky sometimes, simultaneously sharp and calm.

    Select appropriate music. Find quiet, dark place. Listen. Mental drift state(s) ensue.

    There's also sleep-deprivation.

    Whenever bathwater is running, it's like I'm somehow transported away from the world.

    Post-coitus deserves mention. I become ridiculous and lose any ability to lie.

    Early in the morning, when nobody is out is also special. Same effect late at night, when I'm driving and I'm the only one on the road.

    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that a problem.
