Sometimes I feel that I have no body, and that I'm walking on Air. Or that all I have is a Brain.

I feel kind of like that. Only I'm aware of my body, but feel detached from it, spaced, and unable to keep track of time. Is there a possible explaination or name for this?

I'm not sure what this is called. It does, however, sound like how I felt while the girl at a party was touching me while talking to me. I call this "self-dissociation", since in a way, you dissociate from your physical sense of being, only focusing on what your brain is receiving.
