I happened across this expression "as if we were are..." I would appreciate if someone simplifies the meaning & illustrates the tense?
Here is the context: After just one phone call or e-mail from our boss or a family member that elicits a strong emotional reaction such as anger, frustration, fear, anxiety, sadness, guilt, suffering, or shame, we turn on the primitive fight-or-flight nervous system, causing us to react as if we were are being chased by a predator.
From the book: Becoming Supernatural by Dr. Joe Dispenza. Also, I checked google and found out that there are other people who use this expression, I checked using google dorks:
intext:"as if we were are."
So I don't think it's a mistake.
