“I could identify everything around me, yet nothing looked the same. My surroundings were cast in black and white. There was no blur, just a total absence of colors. The shapes were profoundly neat. It all appeared so clearly to me, effortlessly. I did not have to focus, nor squint to adjust. It was coming to me naturally.

I could discern it all, as if I were standing in broad daylight, except I was not. The world around me was dressed up in a brand new gown adorned by lights of stars, and the headstrong scent of nature. I was standing in a space made up of shades of grey – rich and bright, brought to life by the moonshine.”
