beckoning edge of the mind. It defies ready description, challenges
us with its illusive presence yet exists in the same undefinable
way that all intangible things exist.
this realm 'space' is an important and acknowledged component.
We tend to equate this space with sub-space and the explorative
experiences to the submissives. However, space is not exclusively
the domain of the submissive.
Dominant and the submissive tend to mirror, reflect and balance
each other in almost ALL aspects of the life experience. This
is also true with 'space'.
a Dominant is in normal space there is often a sensation of
being in neutral or coasting. The person will function, deal
with issues, handle problems and go about the mundanities of
their daily life. This 'space' appears to be identical to the
same 'top space' experienced by the submissive.
something occurs to 'trigger' the Dominant then the Dominant
will alter or shift. This is a transition from 'top space' to
ON. At this stage the Dominant will become more alert and anything
which is not 'involved' in what has triggered their attention
will be set aside or discarded. If nothing further occurs the
Dominant will often revert to their 'normal or top space' and
resume whatever tasks they were engaged in. The sensations of
being ON will vanish with the same speed that they erupted with.
This space can be easily equated with a submissives marginally
'down' space with the distinction being a shift upward into
clarity instead of downward into 'deeper space'.
a Dominant is triggered ON and the stimuli continues for a period
of time then that Dominant will progress past the sort of early
'watchful' stage to one of FULLY ON or UP. In this stage a Dominant
will often feel an upswing of energy. They are actively prepared
to react or respond quite literally to anything. They may find
themselves almost hyper-active from this sudden energy boost
and at times they will scramble mentally to adjust to what feels
like a presence settling over and through them. They will note
that their perceptions alter, vision acuity will often tighten,
hearing will intensify, adrenaline will fly through them offering
a rush of sudden strength. There is a sensation of increased
awareness. Detail will often magnify.
a scene has been initiated then the Dominant will often note
a sensation of alert mental detachment. This is a seperation
of their normal emotional responses to everything that is around
them. Some Dominants will also note a sensation of energy flow,
this appears or sometimes feels like it is emanating from the
submissive they are scening - with some Dominants there will
be the distinct feeling that they are INSIDE of the submissive.
A part of the Dominant will experience the scene from within
the submissive perspective. Some Dominants will report 'hearing'
the mind of their submissive. There is often a sensation of
accelerating excitement, these sensations may be so intense
as to produce a physical quiver in the body. A differing set
of responses will often seem to replace those they would consider
to be normal. These responses are often keyed directly TO the
person or scene they are involved in. The emotional detachment
and altered responses allow the Dominant to take actions or
'play' with their submissive in ways they would have difficulty
with in 'normal space'. It is important to note here that scening
excites a Dominant, that excitement and the attached levels
of danger pump chemistries into the Dominant's blood stream.
