Maybe it was a sign that your meditation was good, and you have developed some insight on the impermanence of matter, and the delusion that makes us accept forms as static and real was not present for a moment. I believe TV is an excellent method of raising delusion up once again
Take look at this text, by Ven. Mahasi Saydaw, it may be useful so that you don't get scared when such experiences occur: http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... html#ch6.5

some people do experience moments of deep insight suddenly- they are however unstable because there is no gradual buildup- the yogi is not prepared for it and so it can seem disturbing-in that sense they are superficial. this is in a way, the mind showing us what it is capable of- typically happens in samadhi/unified states like the one you mentioned. nothing to worry about- the fear was because it felt wierd. just remember that even the fear arises and passes away. it is unlikely to happen repeatedly. I have heard of people experiencing non-self in this manner. Nothing gets us back to the ignorance (also known as 'normality') like indulging in some sense pleasures during such moments! But you should take this as a sign that your mind can give rise to deep insight and work with an insight meditation teacher.
