It is noticed, realised, that there is now an almost unbroken timeless experience of continuous presence.

What’s that?

Well, it is the continuous location of the senses — presence — within the sensory universe that starts with the body. It’s a continuous ‘in-the-body-experience’.

This is not the opposite of an ‘out-of-body-experience’. It is rather its obverse, perception within its locus of origin.
