I found this video on a great blog: http://ankursunsharma.wordpress.com I recommend you visit this site. It inspired me to think about what this creative video was offering and what we had at our disposal now. Watch the video and see my comment below. Then visit, Ankursunsharma.
Technology may make virtual reality this real but why wait? Did you ever wake up at 4:30 AM and notice that your body was asleep while you were awake? Your mind is clear and focused, you can recall what you said to your parents at age 3 when they made you go to bed instead of watching the end of the cartoon; or you might choose to vividly recall the emerald green color of the salesgirls eyes when she smiled at you last week in the grocery store. Your mind is sharp yet your muscles are like lead weights and they won’t move. Your body is asleep! This is the hypnagogic state that can take you to lucid dreaming but even better to any where in your mind or any mind. Transcendental meditation can be similar but it takes years to achieve. The hypnagogic state happens every night when you learn to tell your mind to allow it. I liked the video above, it was creative. I write sci-fi based on the trips I take at 4:30 AM. I can’t wait, why should you?
