Before you ever write such an article, I have a preliminary feeling about the shiver. I'd like to state it here and then see how close your take is.
Often when I get that shiver, it's immediately after a key statement in an internal dialogue. It's sort of like a cosmic highlighter pen saying "pay attention to this thing you just said to yourself".
It can also happen when I'm internalizing song lyrics. A few years ago I found myself getting that shiver (sometimes with tears) in response to Radiohead's The Tourist
, where Thom Yorke sings "hey man, slow down, slow down ... idiot, slow down". This is just a variation on the same thing, it's still me having an internal dialogue, only there happens to be something external to myself supporting it.
