yer description reminds me of the time I helped my brother get thru dental school 25 years ago.

He was at the very end of his last year and needed a number of actual procedures to wrap it up. Little brother hippie(me) with bad teeth rolled into town. He took one look in my mouth and kissed me.....what I mean is...I had everything wrong...that he needed to fix to acquire his Doctorate of Pain and Fear degree...and he could strap me in the chair whenever he liked...Sometimes finding patients at college dental schools is tricky. I was a captured subject.

I'm getting there! keep yer shorts on....

I sat for many days.... week after week suckin Nitrous at max levels. Obviously I had the opurtunity to study it's affects throughly.

Did I mention I was/am a hippy. Havin injested copious amounts of every Psychotropic known to modern man prior to this...I delved the depths of just what this psychedelic "Nitrous" was between playin tic tac togo with the ceiling tiles....and talkin to God.

I'm gettin there...hold yer horses.

SOOOOO...during one, what should have been, a very painful procedure. My bro saw me wince..."does that hurt?" He asked...(This from the guy that beat me up on a regular basis as a kid...butt i digress)...

I shook my head no....I felt a wierd sensation butt without the OUCH....that's when I knew one could experience "pain"...somewhere in yer psychi...but if there wasn't an didn't hurt...didn't "count" as pain.

Was I hallucinating? bet yer ass. ..butt this principle is real and identifiable.

Fer what that's worth.
