“Reality shifting” is a term popularised in internet culture in 2020 primarily on TikTok, for the spiritual practice of “transferring” or “shifting” one’s awareness to a fictional universe or a parallel universe. The practice is often confused with astral projection and lucid dreaming, and there is overlap in the methods and outcomes of both. Practitioners explain the phenomenon as possible due to multiverse theory, but also describe it to be a spiritual practice involving exploration of deeper consciousness. Shift is a piece for symphonic orchestra and audio playback, which studies the thin edge between joyful exploration and risk of touching the darkest spots of the soul.
