From Wikipedia, which, as Jesse Sheidlower could surely tell us, is also a verb, as in “Wiki that shit before you go around spouting nonsense!”:

Experience of the K-hole may include distortions in bodily awareness, such as the feeling that one’s body is being tugged, or is gliding on silk, flying, or has grown very large or distended.[citation needed] Users have reported the sensation of their soul leaving their human body.[citation needed] Users have also often reported feeling more skeletal or becoming more aware of their bones - the shape of their hands is also often of interest.[citation needed] Users may experience worlds or dimensions that are ineffable, all the while being completely unaware of their individual identities or the external world. Users have reported intense hallucinations including visual hallucinations, perceptions of falling, fast and gradual movement and flying, ‘seeing god’, feeling connected to other users, objects and the cosmos, experiencing psychic connections, and shared hallucinations and thoughts with adjacent users.[citation needed]

Yes, primary sources, people!
