"Disorientation is the divergence of the normal time and space feeling."

It would be really nice to have a description of what, exactly, the 'normal time and space feeling' is, because that's pretty vague. Is dizziness a part of orientation? That is, if someone is dizzy, are they still considered oriented? --Bertieismyho 18:33, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

No, diziness is a form of disorientation. The normal time and space feeling IS vague, because there is a thin line between what is normal, what is exaggerate orientation, what is reduced orientation and what is disorientation. Generally, the "normal" state is when you can count seconds with reasonable accuracy, you know where you are and can assess what the objects around you look like and how far away they are, and you are aware of yourself and all (that is left of) your body.

...in relation to Gruen transfer[edit]

would it be possible to state how environment plays a role in creating disorientation. Exit2DOS CtrlAltDel 20:12, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
