sleepwalking, the result of a peaceful mind without first inducing sleep paralysis.
seeing things that are not there, a peaceful mind opens 3rd eye and see other frequencies, functions in the dark so light will cause it to
lucid dream, being awake while sleeping.
ur friend has all of these combined.
going to sleep, body is not entering sleep paralysis, mind is calmed and 3rd eye opens inducing the dream state, other mental distraction causes him
to awake mid sleep partially, to have a lucid sleepwalking dream.
i would say ur friend is almost or is severely mentally off balance. no pills may help unless maybe a tranquilizer or local anaesthetic until he can
rebalance and settle his mind. meditate!
