your connection to the body, you would be like an angel floating above
looking at things from the harmless perspective. The goal is to return to
this perfected state of being which is merely a different vantage point.
Look at the couch as from above. If you had not a body, the couch
would be meaningless. You wouldn’t need to sit. The couch would
appear odd to you. It would be worthless and not understood by you.
Without your body, the couch would be nothing to you.
