I was extremely drowsy and couldn't focus, but I don't like to fall asleep with that weird mix ( of sensation and unconsciousness in consciousness ( ; similar to intoxication ) .
Finally I gave in, tore myself away from g+ ; --- so I could get up and do pre sleep rituals ( including supplements and pharmaceuticals that give me "good sleep" and approved relaxation --- i.e. it feels pure , refreshing , not stupid ) and go to bed, properly.
The act of making myself get up ( to go to bed properly ) Woke Me Up ... I was already asleep, and dreaming; if not resting.
( Its harder to recall dream details when they take place in G+ abstract conversationland. )
Why did I feel drowsy, like I was fighting to stay awake, if I was asleep and dreaming ?
Would I have been better off staying "asleep", or should I have gotten "Up" ?
If you are convinced you are falling asleep and you ought to, how can you know you already are ?
How did I direct myself to get up, ( and do so ) if asleep ?
( coincidence ? )
How rare is feeling like you are falling asleep, AFTER, you've already fallen asleep ?
The Mystery of Dream Histories
In retrospect I had some prior memories from dreams yesterday. My conscious narrative included some recent sleep dream personal histories.
My dreams often include false narratives which may include ( or so I think when awake ) extensive past dreaming experiences. Like lost episodes strung together. Into a series , going back decades.
I generally think I know upon awakening, the difference between a dreams false biographical history, and that informed by real old dreams then remembered in dreams , as a fact.
Sometimes this is very obvious as in "Dreams when X happens "
But othertimes its a sort of faith to know the dreamings self false history is a true telling of previous dreams, and not simply a new one.
But my dream was an extension of what I did while awake ( g+ philosophy community. ) .
I've lost the topics ( of dream Plussing ) though. One was about death. Not actual death but G+ philosophy posts on it.
