Once upon a time, when I gave up on life and things still kept going, I lost a lot of my filters, so I hear and see things others are culturally trained to ignore and immediately forget. Nothing mystical about that, but it sure is magic.
I just went and read a few articles on cold reading. And yeah, that sounds about right. And _exactly_ like psychotherapy. And just talking with someone. And being alive. The only difference seems to be the intent.
