Well, when we sleep, the physical body ....
Hold on while I look for this. I just the other day had gotten something on this from them...
I'm going to go look for a post I psoted as I was getting it. I'll copy/paist. (Oh, I should say...at times it is ME who is being talked to, and
what is said can only be aplied to me personaly. But then there are times when the words are spoken about all of us.)
By dreams. Be very sure that, when the body is asleep, the spirit
enjoys the use of faculties of which he is unconscious while his body
is awake. He remembers the past, and sometimes foresees the future:
it acquires more power, and is able to enter into communication with
other spirits, either in this world or in some other.
"You often say, 'I have had a strange dream, a frightful dream,
without any likeness to reality' You are mistaken in thinking it to
be so; for it is often a reminiscence of places and things which you
have seen in the past, or a foresight of those which you will see in
another existence, or in this one at some future time. The body being
torpid, the spirit tries to break its chain, and seeks, in the past
or in the future, for the means of doing so. "Poor human beings! how
little do you know of the commonest phenomena of your life! You fancy
yourselves to be very learned, and you are puzzled by the most
ordinary things. To questions that any child might ask, 'What do we
do when we are asleep?' 'What are dreams?' you are incapable of
Sleep effects a partial freeing of the soul from the body. When you
sleep, your spirit is, for the time being, in the state in which you
will be after your death. The spirits who at death are promptly freed
from matter are those who, during their life, have had what may be
called intelligent sleep. Such persons, when they sleep, regain the
society of other spirits superior to themselves. They go about with
them, conversing with them, and gaining instruction from them; they
even work, in the spirit-world, at undertakings which, on dying, they
find already begun or completed. From this you see how little death
should be dreaded, since, according to the saying of St. Paul,
you 'die daily.'

Anyway - we are able to precieve and go far when sleeping, more so than in a waking state - yes. As far as not hearing things around your physical
body - for me (and I am speaking about waking hours) - it seems like I can be tuned into this world 90% and not precieve the other world at all. But
when I precieving the other world (which never gets so high as 90% while awake), it is like I'm between radio stations. I'm not safe to drive, I
don't follow conversations very well - I bearly grasp intellectual things going on around me. I'm more on 'robot mode' and functioning very
little here. I still hear things though, it just seems that the things I hear or see are very less important and meaningful than usual.
