I might have been a little bleary and half asleep.
Wait, let's go back a step.
Have you ever seen Star Trek? It's a science fiction TV show about, oh, sorry, right. You said yes.
Excellent. So much easier.
Well there's this thing that Spock does. Spock is a character on Star Trek who...
Right, right, great. You know Spock. Excellent.
So he does this thing called the Vulcan Mind Meld. It's, like, a Vulcan telepathic cultural sort of thing. He puts his hand with a deliberate, unusual spreading of the fingers on someone's face and they form a telepathic link.
In the middle of the night last night I strangely woke up with my hand on my face very much in the formation of one doing a Vulcan Mind Meld. If felt oddly comfortable, though it was also most curious. I left my hand as it was and I thought "This is just like Spock's hand doing a Vulcan Mind Meld!"
And then I thought excitedly "I can tell what I'm thinking!"
