Even though the OP is sleeping he is still aware of his surroundings and can probably detect a change in light right thru his eyelids just by someone blocking light in his doorway. He may also be able to detect them breathing. I'm sure his senses are more alert due to him being in a relaxed state.

Hey jbondo, i think you hit it right on the nose. this is probably whats going on with me.


I think this is all pretty natural stuff.


if you can recommend a better forum to this be placed in let me know and i can u2u a mod about having it moved.

thanks

Get the point. I feel your talents would be put to better use in BTS.



Hey, what's with the condescending posts. There's no need to treat an ATS member like that. Everyone is free to post what they want, as long as it's within the confines of the T&C's.

Now, to answer the OP's original question.

Yes sometimes I do wake up when people enter my room, if it's at my own house a lot of times I don't, but if I was at someone else's house I wake up right away. I suppose it has do with being in unfamiliar territory.

I'm really trying to raise my awareness to become more sensitive to another persons presence. I think it would be a good thing for everyone to try to raise their awareness to what is going on around them.

please dont try to inject a psychic phenomena into a very mundane subject. Lots of people wake up when someone enters the room, it is far from being a "psychic experience" or connection to whatever. It takes very little to disturb some people form sleep, even from someone walking into the room. This does not make you special in any way, it more aptly describes your sleeping habits then anything else.

Now thats true to a certain extent, and there are loads of light sleepers out there. It could be that simple, for you perhaps or maybe wu jus havent had your wittle nappie?

Happens to me too, all the time. I guess It happens because I want it to.
Subconsciously I probably make my body aware when it hears the slighest noise that something is coming into my room, or close to me.
Also I feel uneasy sleeping with just anyone seeing my face, or doing something I'm unaware of.

So I think its our subcouncious mind waking us up. What a nice thing.

Do you wake up when another person enters a room?

When I'm at work, I'd say Yes. When I'm on my own time, No.

i once read a book about a roman assassin, he said he never looked at the back of someones head as he was going to kill them as he would know he was coming. Just my 2 cents

My comment about it being natural was just an observation. I have no problem as to where this thread is.

We all have amazing abilities built into us and if people were taking more advantage of their senses and brain function they would notice it's not as unbelievable as some may think.

Nothing psychic or mystical about it.

I don't wake up completely when that happens. It's kinda weird... I talk and I have a perfect conversation with the person and I can even answer the phone... the only draw back is that I don't remember when I wake up. Happens quite a lot. I also tend to sleep walk and I wake up in front of the fridge or in the living room.

I think it a self defense system built into us since the time of the cavemen. Unfortunately some of us a more finely tuned defense system than others. In my case you could shoot off a cannon in my room and it wouldn't wake me.
On the other hand I've never used an alarm clock in my life. If I have to wake up at 6:30 I just do. If I don't have to wake up until 8:00 than thats when I wake up. I don't know why but never fails for me.

Your ears don’t shut of when you sleep. We can prove this using EEG, as sound generates “K-Complexes. K-Complexes normally only occur in stage two sleep. This is the reason that a doctor will tell you its poor sleep hygiene to have on a Radio or TV while sleeping. Your brain is still hearing it, and generating the wrong type of brainwaves for other stages of sleep.


K Complex
A K-complex is an EEG waveform that occurs during stage 2 sleep. It consists of a brief high-voltage peak, usually greater than 100 µV, and lasts for longer than 0.5 seconds. K-complexes are often followed by bursts of sleep spindles. K-complexes occur randomly throughout stage 2 sleep, but may also occur in response to auditory stimuli. It is the response to auditory stimuli that likely lead to the origin of the term K-complex. Original research in the mid-1900s showed that K-complexes would arise when researchers would knock on the door of a sleeping subject.

Yeah I get this sometimes as well, I think it must be something to do with your ears still picking up noises, especially because it's usually quiet when you are sleeping so even the slightest out of place noise is noticeable. I must say it's a pretty cool trait for our species to have developed.

I had a pretty good one the other week when I fell asleep in a bed at a party and early in the morning a couple of mates thought it would be a laugh to sneak in and jump on me lol. Even though they were being as quiet as possible I felt myself completely wake up and instantly knew there were people in my room as soon as they were at the door, so I scared the crap out of them by waiting for them to get close then suddenly jumping up and yelling at them lol

Another example of being in tune is your internal clock. I don't use an alarm clock at all and I am never late for work.


Yeah the body clock is a great one as well. Whenever I set my alarm I always wake up 1 minute before it goes off lol it's weird but cool

goes for me too, unless I'm completely exhausted, then I might just disregard and fall back asleep...

There have been a number of pompous replies to this post which disappoints me. There is no need for the higher than holy attitude.

Back to the subject at hand, I will also wake when someone enters the room. I know of people who a profoundly deaf who do the same thing. It is about sensing more than hearing. I sleep with an electric fan on summer and winter because I suffer from tinnitus and I use the fan as white noise so sound has nothing to do with my waking.

My brother on the other hand wouldn’t wake regardless. In fact he slept through a house exploding next-door.

Weird, isn't it? We respond to a difference in sound level, it seems. For example, if I fall asleep with the radio or TV on, and someone comes in and shuts it off, I will most likely wake up just as readily as if they had come into a quiet room and turned the TV on.

But are they totally deaf?

White noise is not the same thing, white noise will not effect you that way that inconsistent noise will.

I do have the bad habit of leaving the TV on at night. I'm sure it has allot to do with me waking up to go to the bathroom at least 3 times a night.

I attribute it to my bladder but it's most likely the TV that wakes me. Funny though, I would think you would get used to it (as one poster above seems to be) not unlike someone that lives in the heart of a city and is subject to constant external noise.

I have a cycle I go thru whereby I am usually very tired on Mondays and then as the week goes on I seem to be less an less tired. When the weekend comes I try to sleep in. Then the cycle starts over again on Monday with the drowsy day.

defcon, what if anything can you get from what I described? Am I getting enough sleep? The right kind of sleep?
