But I would call it rather an "other plane of consciousness".
A plane in between the ego and the true-self.
A plane between the physical world and the spiritual (non-physical).
A place ruled by your own thoughts and emotions.
That would explain why we still feel "somehow" in a physical world but not as "intensly". You can hear, see, smell, touch and taste but you can also fly, teleport and pretty much go against the laws of physics if you please. Of course, it depends on individuals.
That would also explain why sometimes some people feel more like an "outside observer" rather than a physical body. It happens to me a lot. It feels like I'm a "singularity". Like a single point that acts like a "camera". For me, it's exactly because the inner-self is made of consciousness and consciousness in non-physical. Although sometimes, I will feel my body and only "see" it if I look into a mirror (in my dream). Depends on the setting.
