a peek into higher dimensions

Here is a slightly edited excerpt from
which is a subsubpage of
describing my sun stare of Sept. 5, 1991 during which
I think I got a peek into higher dimensions:

"I then began staring at the sun, a white throbbing disk, when
the time was not much more than two hours before sunset.
Normally I would have sneezed to avert the eyes, but this
time did not. (Luckily I did not have my -11/-10 diopter
lenses on, so any focus formed well off the retina.) Instead
I stared intently until it seemed that my entire being was
extending out and calling to the sun and even beyond, in
some sort of tunnelling effect, I think a glimpse into higher
dimensions, and sort of as if you placed two mirrors facing
one another and peeked inside, that sort of curved tunneling.
I was caught up in a powerful mystic experience. It was as
if there was a higher dimensional unfolding, as if the 3
dimensions tilted or dimpled somehow and there was a
wraparound effect, as if there were giant butterfly wings
folding in around me. I, a mere mortal, grabbing at the
skyhook, was then overloaded and blacked out for an instant.
I fell forward into the water and came to almost immmediately,
and with back arched and chest up floating as if in the
upward-facing-dog pose of the yoga sun salutation (inhaled
and chest up so I wouldn't drown). So that was sort of
baptism by nature in a way, and possibly extension to my
higher dimensional form that I have gradually learned to
use some I think (and may continue to gradually learn to
use) later and as a result I think I may have some special
abilities though some of those are episodic, and I have yet
to prove objectively that I have special abilities, but to
me, subjectively, they appear to work at times."
