Just saw this thread and had to put my two cents in! I have dissociated since I was an adolescent. It first started and scared the hell out of me cause I had no idea what it was. It usually happened during times of stress or being tired. Then when I started therapy 15 years ago, I pretty routinely would "leave" because it was so hard for me. Later, I learned to tolerate it a bit more and not try so hard to escape from it.

I've experienced the whole watching a movie thing, and hearing is altered and the light in the room can even appear dimmer or brighter. It's weird and I don't think that "most" people ever experience it. My understanding is that it is brought on by extreme stress such as trauma (as in my case). I suspect that most people with PTSD have experienced it.
