Can You Be Awake And Asleep At The Same Time? – Masako Tamaki

Can You Be Awake And Asleep At The Same Time? – Masako Tamaki

What Is It?

Here is the description for this video:

Discover the phenomenon known as asymmetrical sleep, where parts of an animal’s brain are asleep while other areas remain active.

Many animals need sleep. But all the threats and demands animals face don’t just go away when it’s time to doze. That’s why a range of birds, mammals, and even humans experience some degree of asymmetrical sleep, where parts of the brain are asleep, and other areas are more active. So, how does it work? Masako Tamaki explores how animals’ brains remain vigilant even at their most vulnerable.

What is it about?

This is how the IMDb describes this short film:

In the surreal short film ‘Raderen’, the viewer is confronted with the oppressive limbo between waking and sleeping of a young woman that lies in her bed. On the relentless rhythm of time she is propelled through the grim metropole of the mind, until she wanders into redemption.

Neck Soreness And Stiffness

I woke up this morning feeling like someone put me in a neckbreaker, and so the left side of my neck has been sore and stiffer when I try to move it to the left so no weightlifting for me today and I will probably take it easy the next few days. 😀

I had some dreams but I did not voice record them, and the last time that I woke up I realized how late it was so I jumped out of bed with my dreams still on my mind but they quickly jumped out of my mind.

Recently my dreams have been pretty boring and I have not really cared about remembering them somewhat subconsciously and / or consciously, and so my brain has not really been trying to remember my dreams and even when I do they quickly leave my brain.

But if I remember something later I will try to add it here.

*Added The Next Day*:

When I was in bed either before I went to sleep or after I woke up briefly, I remembered part of a forgotten dream from the previous night, but I accidentally went back to sleep without voice recording it so I mostly forgot it again.

I think that the dream involved me moving around (maybe walking) past / by various options / choices, my dad was possibly in the dream at some point, but that is all that I can remember now of this dream.

The end,

My Mind Responding To Thoughts | Talking To My Former Classmate JC

Last night I got about 3 hours of sleep after staying up very late trying to catch up with things from yesterday like trying to prepare my post for my genealogical DNA test results, and so my mind mostly thought and had some semi-daydreams and some short dreams.

I think that my mind was thinking about things that I did during yesterday and some things that I had to do today, like work and preparing that post et cetera, and sometimes my mind would respond to those thoughts verbally and / or through short dreams and semi-daydreams.

Quote (By Wikiquote)

Give me the judgment of balanced minds in preference to laws every time.

Codes and manuals create patterned behavior.

All patterned behavior tends to go unquestioned, gathering destructive momentum.
