I feel that way sometimes, but other times I feel perfectly "In the zone", like whatever I'm doing at that moment is effortless. However, in my case I think it has to do with my blood sugar, which varies wildly. And the video? That's just an extraordinarily talented dancer. Damn he's good.

dissociation can be caused from many things. not just anxiety.
most people describe it as being automated...feeling as though they are 'on auto pilot.
Depersonalization disorder is often comorbid with anxiety disorders, panic disorders, clinical depression and bipolar disorder.
Depersonalization disorder is thought to be largely caused by severe traumatic lifetime events including childhood sexual, physical, and emotional abuse
The core symptom of depersonalization disorder is the subjective experience of unreality, and as such there are no clinical signs. Common descriptions are: watching oneself from a distance; out-of-body experiences; a sense of just going through the motions; feeling as though one is in a dream or movie; not feeling in control of one's speech or physical movements; and feeling detached from one's own thoughts or emotions. Individuals with the disorder commonly describe a feeling as though time is 'passing' them by and they are not in the notion of the present. These experiences which strike at the core of a person's identity and consciousness may cause a person to feel uneasy or anxious.
