"You focus. What is before you becomes the world. The edges of that world disappear as
you zoom in. The object - say the paper, and the thoughts that gather around the paper
by gathering as lines on the paper - becomes what is given by losing its contours [...]
Then, behind you, someone calls out your name. As if by force of habit, you look up, you
even turn around to face what is behind you. But as your bodily gestures move up, as you
move around, you move out of the world, without simply falling into a new one. Such
moments when you 'switch' dimensions can be deeply disorientating. [...] They are
moments in which you lose one perspective, but the 'loss' itself is not empty or waiting; it
is an object, thick with presence."
- Sara Ahmed - Queer Phenomenology
