last night , or should I say this morning, when I finally laid down my head to sleep, something really odd happened.
I'd been on ATS for several hours for the first length of time since the whole downtime thing and it was 4 in the morning when I finally gave in.
As soon as my head hit the pillow, I was aware of these images that I couldn't actually see but was just aware of them in my head. It was in black
and white. I was aware of a woman wearing a twenties style hat? or bonnet (very close to the shape of her head) she was wearing some sort of pinnifore
and she was washing clothes on a washboard and then hanging them over a washing line.This was all playing in my mind at a very high speed. At the same
time I was aware of hearing but not actually hearing someone talking but as if it was an audio tape on fast forward so that I couldn't hear the words
but was just aware that it was speech.
My eyes were closed and I think that they were moving very fast like someone who is in the R.E.M. phase of sleep.
I lay like that trying to take it in and make sence of it for about 5 minutes after which I rolled over onto my other side. The whole thing just
stopped then, and I must have gone off to sleep pretty much after that.
I have no idea what this was. I suppose that it could have been down to the fact that my mind was just over stimulated from being on the internet at
that time in the morning, or just because it was so late, although I used to work nights for a couple of years and go to bed at 6 in the morning, and
nothing like this has ever happened before.
Any thoughts anyone?
