    I'd describe it only as the starting place for gut and instinct, a very naive state before the waters of consciousness run in.

This sounds like a phenomenon I experience with music or film, a conversation with a friend, or a good book (although harder with a book). There’s this period of time when I can just enjoy the thing... without examining why I enjoy it. Is it that? The time of observation without evaluation?
