It is when you totally exit reality and enter into your brain. many people who do sports or hike for long distances have been in the zone.
when in the zone you can do two things. you can either be thinking deeply about past events, future events, or fantasies, or you can just not think at all. you might even be talking to someone while in the zone and then when out of the zone not remeber talking to them.
people who play videogames think that they have been in "the zone". they are wrong. that is just an adrenaline rush. when in the zone you dont have faster reactions like on an adrenaline rush, you just dont feel anything
drinking a lot of alchohol or smoking a lot of weed can get you in something similar to the zone.
hiker 2- Yes.
hiker 1- this is going to suck
10 miles later
hiker 2- finally we're here!
hiker 1- what the fuck just happened
Stoner- word dude, what the fuck just happened for the past 4 hours?
drunk- the last thing i remember was stepping outside, now im laying face down in a field.
Stoner- word, you were in the zone
drunk- werent you too?
stoner- no i was just really baked
Drink as much as you can!! If you remember going to the pub toilet and waking up in bed, then the Zone has been achieved!! Well done - you can now nurse your hangover until tonight when you will do it all again!!
If you remember eating the kebab, you've just wasted an evening testing this theory! Loser - Go out and do it all again until you achieve the goal!!
