I don’t mean to knock any-one’s boat out of the water here, but I am a Polysomnographic technician (a sleep tech), and I think that I have a logical
answer for you. As much as it may not please the doom Sayers out there, I work around many patients every night, I monitor them, and have yet to be
knocked on the head, stunned, or otherwise manipulated by the following:
Sons of Osiris
The Grey Ghost
When people sleep their perception of what is going on is REALLY different then what is actually going on. Usually when something like this happens it
is not an alien, Daemon, or Ghost. It has a simple answer.
When the human body goes into REM (rapid-eye movement) sleep, the brainwaves are in an active state. This means that you could easily get up and act
out what you are dreaming. The body, however; has a way to deal with this; it emits a Neuro Inhibitor that paralyses the non-essential muscles. If
someone wakes prior to this Neuro-inhibitor wearing off, they experience sleep paralysis. It is well known and documented that when this happens
people are unable to move, and often feel an evil presence in the room with them, often of a dark or gray nature. They often feel, but not always,
that the entity is sitting over them and strangling them.
If you know anyone that has ever had a sleep study done, you can ask them. They should tell you that there are electrodes attached to their chin, and
next to each eye. This is because the EEG that is displayed during REM is difficult to differentiate from someone being awake and looking around the
room. We check muscle tone in the chin and eye movements from each eye.
If you choose not to believe me, make an appointment with a Doctor, and tell him what happened. Nine in ten bet says he will schedule you for a sleep
study to check to see if you have apnea that woke you out of REM suddenly. Other indications are sweating while you are asleep, snoring, waking with a
headache, lapses in memory, and feeling tired or run down.
THIS IS WHERE 90% OF THE ALIEN ABDUCTION STUFF COMES FROM
By the way prior to becoming a member I saw a thread that mentioned someone being pushed down in the bed by a dark daemon. If anyone comes across this
thread, send it my way. This person is most likely having sleep apnea with Periodic Limb Movements. This is something that the body does to stop sleep
apnea and cause a sleep stage change to where the person is able to breathe more efficiently, normally caused by O2 desaturations.
Anyway here is a link to a sleep paralysis site I came across on a quick search, it looked good at a browse, but I don’t have time to read the entire
