Honestly, I think it's just astral bodies of the people who are asleep at night, traveling around. You said it felt similar to being in the presence of other people - well, that's just what it is, only it's their astral bodies, while their physical bodies are asleep. In that sense, something does "wake up" when we go to sleep - our ability to travel out of body. There is more of that going on at night because that's when most people around you are asleep... that's my opinion.

I initially had this exact same thought. This is a very very plausible explanation.
I have personally had 2 involuntary OBEs/Astral projections. They occurred while I was "sleeping" . All of a sudden I became 100% conscious of myself bobbing up and down against my ceiling like a helium balloon would.
Upon realizing this I quickly recovered and decided to jump thru my 20th story bedroom window. Passed right thru the wall and swooped down onto the city street, leveling out and flying right above the heads of the people walking on the sidewalks.
I can clearly remember how real and lucid this was to the point of feeling the cold night air rushing by as I swan dived out my window.
Now to the people walking the street, could they have thought they'd just seen or felt a ghost?
That would really help explain most* ghosts sightings as well..
Keep up the great posts, lots of solid content on this thread so far.

Another dimension we visit during sleep, you're missing it and it's literally happening around you. The only way there is through sleep. When a person doesn't want to sleep or can't sleep he may be resisting what ever is going on in the "sleep dimension". If you change your sleeping hours than you're changing your time there in your "sleep dimension" and it sort of throws things off. Perhaps when you do make it there you are only arriving to sleep there as well because you missed the whole (normal cycle) time by staying up all night in your "known life dimension".
My advice - go to bed at a decent time so all things are in balance.

I keep working at lucid dreaming. Think this is the real goal and being able to seek learning from your Team while dreaming.
