Sometimes when you write, you can get into a creative flow where you lose yourself in your work and lose track of time and the outside world. That happens to me from time to time. And I write science fiction.
Once, I finished writing and discovered that the flow had taken me to the point where I had lost track of what planet I was on. So I looked out the window, took note of several clues, and realized that I was on Earth. And I was there because I had always been there and would always be there.
But I hadn't volunteered to be there.
