::goofiness alert:: Level 2 Mild goofiness

Nowadays, especially in cities, it is hard to find the complete darkness at night. There is an easy way to experience the total darkness and you can do this anywhere anytime when you are wearing a shirt or something with long sleeves (they kind of need to be loose), preferably with thick material that lights cannot pass through. A coat works nicely.

All you do is to pull the sleeves a little so your hands are completely in the sleeves, and place the hole of the sleeves on your eyes with them-right sleeve hole to your right eye, left for your left, or whichever, making it so that your eyes are staring into the sleeves at your fists.

You might think I'm stupid or nuts and maybe I am, but when I do this it's amusing to me and strangely calming. I do it like twice a winter. It's different from the darkness you experience when you close your eyes at night. You feel safe and calm in your sleeves.

I think experiencing the complete darkness is a big deal. I have first experienced it in a cave (a really huge one. I think a three-story building can fit in it, or even larger.) in Okinawa when there was a war people used it as hiding places or a place to take care of injured people. It was a school trip. The guide turned off the flashlight. We couldn't hear anything. We couldn't see anything. For a second, you doubt your own existence. It is an amazing feeling. Could be scary and I think I will lose my mind if I stand there alone for ..maybe a minute. Or rather, three seconds. But this darkness in the sleeves I'm talking about makes me calm, because of the fact that I know I am covering my eyes with the sleeves, it makes a big difference. It's amazing how the darkness can give you different feelings like this.

It's a joy to find something small like this interesting. I don't recommend doing it in public. If you do this in a private space, it would be like a private space (your sleeves) in private space.lol ...I should get back to my study...
