For those new to the idea, hypnagogic hallucination is the state of experiencing dreaming-like visuals and thoughts while remaining awake. Lie down when you’re neither physically nor mentally tired and edge towards falling asleep while focusing on staying awake. Most of the time knowing of this state’s existence and attempting to experience it is enough to attain it. This is because up until this point, you’ve had no reason to try to stay on the edge of wakefulness!\
THIS IS WHAT I CAN DO haha. There’s a name for it, geez. I never knew how to explain it to people.
We love life with a passion that makes it all seem worthwhile.
Whatever our shortcomings, we make the world a more varied and interesting place. We are agents of change and opponents of inertia. As Arthur O’Shaughnessy, a 19th century British poet, said:

It’s one of those moments where I just want to spill my guts out, but my mind’s jumbled and thoughts are just too big for words.
