> If I were to speculate as to why, I'd say it's bc being out in nature promotes feelings of interconnectedness and tranquility, you feel like your "in communion" with it.This is my guess here too. I know I'm capable of entering a flow state no matter the setting really provided I'm required to work/exercise at a fast pace and it's a job or exercise that has a very distinct rhythm or pattern to it.
Perfect example is working at the factory I do, specifically 6 to 7 jobs I know and am really good at. I've done them all enough times that I know the common mistakes that I make or the common problems that show up, and at least 4 or 5 solutions to all of them that I can pick at my discretion based on any given moment/situation I'm in. I know all the ways I mess up too, same thing with correcting the mistake. 2 or 3 I can do almost entirely with my eyes closed, save a quick glance here or there, because of how much it's like I'm performing some kind of dance. Most of the night I achieve a sort of pseudo-flow state where I don't have to think about what I'm doing at all, but sometimes shit will go fast as fuck and I literally have to perform everything I do perfectly... perfectly coordinated, perfectly timed, etc., and these periods usually last between 5-35 minutes, and typically I only fuck up doing it perfectly 5-10 times in a ~40ish minute period.
So basically I have to go so fast and do it so correctly I don't have time to think, and it's like my body or my unconscious mind is actually what's doing all the work. If I'm even observing/recognizing what I'm doing on a conscious level, it's because I'm constantly looking ahead and working ahead, both in a sort of long-term sense (like 5-10 min if we're going that fast and I'm in 100% flow state, or more like 10-30 min if a bit slower), as well as an extreme immediate short-term sense, and as I'm silently observing and error correcting and predicting what will happen in that extreme immediate short-term sense, I can choose to do things differently than the dance normally goes in to componesate for something going wrong, like each individual frame of motion in the dance is modular and I can switch from the normal path the dance takes, insert a new path completely seemlessly, and redirect back immediately following that or even insert another path/modular section of the dance until I hit complete equilibrium again. But it's like, even though that rarely takes place consciously, I usually even do that shit totally unconsciously. It's an uninterrupted flow of rhythm and dance, and often I even try new shit without any problem and the solutions I come up with are more often than not pretty creative, and depending on how that solution did I decide whether or not it's ever worth trying again. Usually I discover doing it the new creative way has some serious potential to be superior to the way I already do things (at least depending on the situation), and I challenge myself to integrate it holistically into the current set of dance/main dance and improve my performance overall.
I actually owe this ability in large part to daily doses of phenibut ranging from 600mg-1.2g (most often 600-900mg), as well as probably unhealthy amounts of caffeine. I alternate between using dipping tobacco and piracetam as an additional method of improving my energy and performance. I'm prescribed adderall too, and for the 5-7 days before I run out, I perform at pretty ridiculous levels and learn and creatively try out new techniques of doing things at a very rapid rate. It's not too uncommon for me to trip fucking nutsack at work on either LSD, shrooms, or a combination of both too (especially combined with piracetam, I wind up tripping honestly probably way too hard but love every minute of it... I try and avoid taking as much phenibut when taking the piracetam+LSD/shrooms+shrooms though). I've had two somewhat uncomfortable experiences at work, but compared to how hard I've tripped a few times, they weren't nearly as intense. Every once in a while the physical effects of the psychedelics don't gel with the work I'm doing and the heat I work in, but typically they completement things perfectly provided I know what I'm doing dosing everything and staying hydrated (which I pretty well do now). The fact I can initiate flow states so easil…
