If you've ever read The Legend Of Bagger Vance, it's an alternative dimension. Another dimension of sight and sound, but without Rod Sterling. I think Golden Earring sang a song about it.

I think the real issue with the thread is the old sports saying that goes along the lines of "act like you've been there before."

I am looking on the bright side: At least no one is arguing about rim vs. disc brakes.

I wouldn't have thought of it as "sexy" because I have no sense of self. It's as if I am the moment. There is no distinction.

So, you were both abducted by aliens also.

Yes. All the time when I put on my roadie uniform, especially when it’s my Sunday best Rapha or Velocio. That is until I look in the mirror.
