The act of immersing oneself in the sensation of one or more stimuli. Tripping out is when someone focuses strongly on a sensation, feeling, or sensory input. Examples of behaviour that may result in tripping out include listening to music (along with dancing to said music), and rubbing one's hand on something soft. The mental state of someone while tripping out is consumed by the sensation on which they are tripping out. For example, when tripping out to music while dancing, the mind becomes fixated purely on the sensations of the music and the dancing in the present, such that awareness of other stimuli becomes ignored. Strong tripping out may look strange to outsiders.
Jack is rubbing his face against a wall while waving his hand in front of his face to the beat of some music. Jack's focus is on the sensations he is feeling at the present, and other sensory input is of no concern to him. Jack is tripping out.
