Mr Ted one thing about DSPS or whatever, … there is a bleeding/leaking between the dream realm and the conscious realm in delayed sleep phase cycle that seems to put connections into one’s consciousness that might not otherwise come so easily. not sure because i can’t be in two phases at one time, but maybe.
Yup! The minds are not multitasking. But all you have to do is ask your right mind to find out what it’s doing.
Do you awaken in the early hours? You may be aflicted with normalicy. Is REM sleep in fact bottom up thinking? Well……..Yes. I’m not positing anything new here, this “phased sleep” has been known about for thousands of years. Vedic scripts suggest the early morning hours for meditating. In pre-lightbulb cultures Phased sleep is the norm. This is when musing occurs, whether in the form of dreaming, meditating, or pondering. While the right mind is continously collating, (except when musing) the left mind is operating in real time, evaluating current input. The minds aren’t multitasking, but we have two of them. During REM sleep, external sensory input is shut down and the left mind turns it’s attention to the collated results of the right mind. i.e. we dream, or if the collated results are significant, we awake and muse. Meditation is artificial musing. To me the data for supporting this conclusion is overwhelming with nothing but common sense and Psychology providing counter arguments. Overt demonstration of this gift is viewed as metaphysical bullshit by society and psychotic by psychology. Psychology, the new inquisition, uses the metaphorical stake to shut down this natural way of dealing with reality. I am aware of no counter-indicative worldviews. (except for psychology)
DSPS Delayed sleep-phase syndrome (DSPS), also known as delayed sleep-phase disorder (DSPD) or delayed sleep-phase type (DSPT), is a circadian rhythm sleep disorder, a chronic disorder of the timing of sleep, peak period of alertness, the core body temperature rhythm, hormonal and other daily rhythms, compared to the normal population and relative to societal requirements. People with DSPS generally fall asleep some hours after midnight and have difficulty waking up in the morning. Wikipedia \
Anthropology of sleep Research suggests that sleep patterns vary significantly across cultures. The most striking differences are between societies that have plentiful sources of artificial light and ones that do not. The primary difference appears to be that prelight cultures have more broken-up sleep patterns. For example, people might go to sleep far sooner after the sun sets, but then wake up several times throughout the night, punctuating their sleep with periods of wakefulness, perhaps lasting several hours. The boundaries between sleeping and waking are blurred in these societies. Some observers believe that nighttime sleep in these societies is most often split into two main periods, the first characterized primarily by deep sleep and the second by REM sleep. Wikipedia
The Cog Do you sleep-torture yourself? Are you a cog in the system of profit and wage slavery, or a bit of debris? That is one question you might have to answer yourself. It will depend on your ideas of the “real world” or the world you are told by the financial system that you inhabit. Where is this sick pyramid they use to control you located? – Xomba
REM The discovery of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep suggested that sleep was not, as it was thought to be, a dormant state but rather a mentally dynamic one. Your brain is, in fact, very active in this state, almost to the level at which it is when a person is awake. Yet during this active stage in which most dreams – Serendip
CRSD Humans, like most animals and plants, have biological rhythms, known as circadian rhythms, which are controlled by a biological clock and work on a daily time scale.
So the natural sleep pattern is from 8pm to midnight, then from 2am to dawn. A meditative state is experienced between midnight and 2am with increased levels of prolactin.
