A stash of mind-altering drugs and a near-death experience... just what a physicist needs to uncover the true nature of the universe, says Stephen Battersbyhttp://www.astro.sk/~msaniga/pub/ftp/Einstein_on_acid.pdf
gaze, to adopt a first-person perspective on consciousness is typically understood as a matter of inwardly engaging one's awareness in such a way as to make one's conscious states and their properties into objects of awareness. When awareness is thus inwardly engaged, experience functions as both act and object of awareness. Introspection!!! Close enough to "examining life from a third-person perspective"?
