I do not think it means what you think it means.
Whenever you become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you have lost sight of your inner purpose. Your state of consciousness is primary. All else is secondary.
Super rare case, but we had a game where someone got out of the dungeon to get his mastery token with a teleport. Whoever, it says you can teleport in a adjacent room. So his the outside considered a room? Can you teleport from the room just before to the outside?
(we decided yes, but I was still wondering).
Yes, you can teleport out of the dungeon.
