Altered State of Consciousness?

This guy on a YouTube video claims that being involved in a good story means you are in an “altered state of consciousness.” Actually he’s a professor, not just some guy off the street. It doesn’t mean he’s right, but it means he probably did some research to back up his statement. I’ve acquired his dissertation to find out whether the research works or not.

If true, it explains a lot: reading being addictive, my difficulty in settling to reading in many public places, the unawareness of surroundings that a reader can have (see Mom it is legit that I don’t hear when I read!). If not true, that means I’m still looking for some explanations.
