that moment between being awake and dreaming
    #1658165 - 06/24/03 09:45 AM (20 years, 11 months ago)

I regularly experience a state of being awake/dreaming and it's the strangest thing. I will use my experience from yesterday as an example. I was in my living room lying on the sofe listening to Tool. I slowly start to drift off into sleep but I could still hear the music (though I couldn't really follow it). Then it almost felt like I was beginnning to dream but the music kept my mind from "letting go". Then I began to get really confused, I didn't know where I was, it felt like I was in another room of my house. Then I realized I was in my living room because I could see it, though my eyes were closed and my head was turned towards the sofa. It is so weird, the more I tried to concentrate on seeing something in focus, say my tv, the more blurry it would become, and when I stopped trying, everything was clear, almost as real as waking reality.  I have experienced this many times on the train as well. I would try to fall asleep but the people talking around me and the noise of the train somehow kept me grounded and not allowed me to fully go to sleep. Again I could see the person sitting in front of me even though my eyes were closed, or I could picture something in my mind and it felt as if I was actually looking at is as if it was right there infront of me. Hehe, whether this means something or not, my visualization skills get good excercise :smile:

Non-REM sleep?

I always drift into that state for a while, as its hard for me to fall metally asleep but my body falls asleep quite easily. I end up seeing many places very clear, and even have strong dreams while I'm falling asleep, but moving in the dreams is really hard. Its a very strange state most reffered to as the hypagogic state, where your body is asleep but your mind is still awake, and usually accompanied by visuals of places.
