    Dwarfworld Sleep Paralysis and hypnopompia

    Film and literature are full of stories of the nightmare.
    It appears to be a universal phenomena, often a one off during puberty and sometimes described as a Poletergeist


    Nightmare on bed street

    The out of body experience or travel nightmare in Denmark the 'mareridt' in Francophonie the 'Cochemare', each reflecting the horse metaphor for some rollercoaster the individual cannot , control,other authorities relate it to child abuse,satanic ritual or possession by demons etc.Some have vivid lucid dreams some awake frozen.

    More mundane analysis suggests sleeping flat may cause disturbed breathing which triggers psychological responses and then the autonomic system needs a kick start.

    Some claim never to dream but REM tracking reveals most do even dogs ,just few others have vivd recall or dream steer without practice.

    One of my favourite books T Dunn's An Experiment with time relates a good recall technique the immediate notation of the waking /broken dream.I learnt the technique and actually met some of his disciples in Hay on Wye with Richard Booth the scion of the gin Empire and a literary host ,gentleman and all round bon viveur.

    Hay is now home to the festival described by Bill Clinton as the literary Woodstock,alors revenr a nos moutons...

    Some cultures speak of the djinn, the dreaming , the laminak.
    Jinn (Arabic: الجن‎, al-jinn), also romanized as djinn or anglicized as genies, are supernatural creatures in early Arabian and later Islamic mythology and theology. An individual member of the jinn is known as a jinni, djinni, or genie (الجني, al-jinnī).

    laminak - Wiktionary
    https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/laminak
    Noun[edit]. laminak (plural laminaks). Fairies in Basque mythology who are related to the Little People in Celtic lore.

    Of course the little people are common place in Celtic lands the
    The Welsh Noons, the Irish Leper corn, the Breton Korrigans to name but a few
    There are known therapies as used by Awabakal in sacred caves these involved an overnight vigil with pomp.

    In rural Basque country exorcism included the Bruja or flying witch as attacked by the Inquisition of Bayonne at Zigarramundi where the akelarre was notorious

    In Catholic countries the priest enters to rid the succubus in a trance like ceremony

    The Dogon of Mali and people of Bechuanaland have many tales and respect for those so possessed as special.

    A rich seem which seems universal, dream steering is astral navigation.

    Well, at least it's a different.
    His attempts to stir up the pot is quite worthy
    In comparison to the usual and homogenous offerings and redundant subject matter/opinions that quickly put a forum into slumber mode.


    Cheers, Dave!
