 Part of the book:

 I put a drop of the new compound I had made on my finger with a little fear and obsession, and sat down on a chair and waited.

 It did not take long for the atmosphere around me to change completely.  I was sitting in Yana's bedroom, looking out the window.  It was a strange feeling. I looked at my hands, "My God, these are Yanna's hands."

 I was having the strangest experience of my life.  Although I knew and was fully aware of the experiment and my memory was present, I was fully experiencing Yana's feelings and physical presence at the moment.  "Oh, how can I be two in a moment!"

 I knew everything that was going on in Yana's mind.  I could experience not only her thoughts but also her feelings.

 A strong feeling of inattention, fear, and anxiety intensified in me.  I felt something like tingling and emptiness in my stomach.  I had tears in my eyes and images and thoughts came to my mind one after another.

 It was hard for me to believe, I was not only in her mind but I also knew that I was in her mind, which means I had access to a part of my mind but not to all parts.  The parts of my brain that belonged to the five senses were completely disabled, and I only had access to the part of my memory that knew who I was.  Another interesting point was that I was not able to control Yana's voluntary parts and could only experience and understand what she was experiencing.  I could not think of anything new or get up and do anything.  I was completely paralyzed and could only feel what was happening to her.
