What is this? Is it H.I or something else?....

Postby ryanm888 » 26 Mar 2015 06:58

Hey Everyone,

As Im relaxing and drifting into sleep, I see events like thoughts or mini day dreams, as if im watching a video clip from inside my head. These are usually very cloudy and have poor recollection of them (I mean ill wake up and remember seeing some form of day dream yet I can never remember it!) yet sometimes I’ll try to passively observe them but as soon as I do, they disappear and im fully aware and fully awake although still lay down with my eyes closed.
I don’t know if this is hypnogogic Imagery because im unsure if I have ever even experienced H.I, also I read that H.I is usually observable and is in pattern/shape form.
Any feedback on your views or what this is would be much appreciated.

You're brain is just in an alpha wave state, the same as when just watching or imagining. I would say these are not HI as Hi can be clearly seen, heard, felt or smelt and your brain is in a theta wave state in general, though the HI, NREM LD and REM LD are all theta wave states combined with normal consciousness (alertness, reasoning and memory). These imaginings are related to HI though. HI can be: immobile images; streaming images 2d images; streaming 3d images or a combination of them. One can read books that are being generated out of HI; play video/PC games; create bodies and enter them all in HI. when one moves into NREM LD the images and sets become like being in a 3d movie or game. However if the dreamscape is limited these too could be just HI.
