Experiment: From Above

Find a tall building or any other tall structure, one where you can look at people walking and interacting below. Set your timer to 6 minutes.
Pick one person in the crowd, someone who is walking, or talking, or exercising, etc.
Place your full attention on that one person.
Insert your attention so deeply into them that you start to perceive what they are seeing, what they smell, what they sense around them, their inner motivations for what they are doing, the tiniest movement of your muscles.
Don't even try to distinguish between what you "imagine" that they feel and see and what is real. Just feel it within you and continue to feel it and explore it until the timer sounds.
At that point, remove your attention decisively from that person, take 3 deep breaths and close your eyes.
You can repeat this experiment a maximum of 3 times during one session but no more.
