Sober, for now
   Such beginnings reach a new high today, like never before

Could have been leftovers tripping or off- kilter stray endorphins, or serotonin somehow getting back through

But quantum entanglement on a scale greater than  molecules or brain synapses or chemicals.
The whole experience was caused by me giving. Feeling empathy. Feeling a part of something more immense, instead of apart.
I'm rambling.
A better explanation, might have been in symbolism, perhaps that
Is the derivation of religion.
I just know, for a while
