There's several cultures and religions that strongly believe in that ... somehow your mind can be traveling while actually you sleep. Personally i believe in that idea ... maybe your mind is too far away when you're sleeping to remind you of what you?ve done. Maybe that?s the reason why we can?t remember all of our dreams .. .
I guess sleepwalking is the opposite of sleep paralysis. The body is awake but the mind is still asleep.
I had a roommate once who sleepwalked. He did some pretty crazy stuff. One time he was walking around the room with his eyes open talking to me. I thought he was awake but he was saying really goofy stuff, albeit in perfectly coherent english. After he told me about the giant ducks singing in the bathroom, he crawled back into bed as if his body knew exactly where he was supposed to be.
He told me he never remembered any of his sleepwalking experiences, even though he knew he did it from other people telling him. I'm pretty sure what happens is that the dream reality is draped over waking reality, but it's strange because sleepwalkers can interact with people as they would when awake, it's just that they're asleep and their behavior isn't ordinary due to the subconscious dream influence.
so....? the conscious mind is sleeping..the sub-conscious is dreaming...
how does the body then move around,and interact w/ people/things? does the body recieve directions from the concious mind or sub-conscious? how can either be true, if both are already doing sleeping and dreaming.?
awake one consciously "do". and sub-consciously...?
asleep one consciously can't "do"??
neither awake or asleep can ones body "do" on it's own....(X-ept epileptics and those irritating ~twitches~ peolpe get.
Sleep paralysis is a term either used to describe the normal paralysis of the body that occurs during REM sleep, or the disorder in which awareness is maintained when the body becomes paralysed when entering sleep (known as hypnogogic paralysis) or remains inappropriately paralysed when awakening (known as hypnopompic paralysis). To differentiate normal sleep paralysis and the disorder, the term for the sleep disorder is often referred to as awareness during sleep paralysis.
when sleep walking, you are dreaming, and when you are dreaming in bed, instead of moving around, (like a virtual reality stuff?), the body grounds, you can feel this as you lay down to rest, at least I do..
if I had failed to ground my body before I go in "altered state of consciousness", when I then stood up from my bed and started playing around, i would do so in the "resting body", so people focused on/in that reality, and me later, would have woken up having sleep walked til the paralyze kicked in, and or.. bal blabl :P
