Hypnagogic Jerks...

Post by Rockhopper on Sat Feb 27, 2016 3:21 am

Those sudden twitches just as you are sliding off to sleep.

Hypnagogic jerks refer to involuntary bodily twitches, movements, or muscular jolts that occur during the transition from wakefulness to a sleeping state.  Most people are thought to experience them just moments before entering the first stage of sleep.  In some cases, hypnagogic jerks are also referred to as “sleep twitches” or “sleep starts,” but are sometimes referenced as “hypnic jerks,” which is a broader term characterizing jolts occurring at any point throughout the night.

Perhaps you’ve experienced a hypnagogic jerk as you attempt to fall asleep.  You may lie down for bed, feel as if you’re on the brink of sleep, and suddenly your body jolts involuntarily.  There’s nothing you can do about the jerks, but they usually subside quickly and before you know it, you’re fully asleep.

I loved the theories on the evolutionary reflex! Makes lots of sense!! So when I dream I am falling, that's actually the old hominid in me telling me not to fall of a tree!! lol

We are more like our ancestors than some people like to think Ags.

Oh we are indeed, only a fool would say we  are the creation of 'intelligent' design, when we have so many faulty parts.

I suppose that depends on your definition of intelligent design and what you think it involves, Aggie. I am one of those that believes a higher power has sometimes nudged us.

I would not go as far as you Ags, in this mix everything goes, even when you think it does not. I would chose Kaere's version of probability.

If you look at logic, we have more functioning on the human level, than not, which makes a good ballance.

Sorry guys, but I don't see the evidence for a a higher power or intelligence having tampered with us...... but I shouldn't have said fool and I apologize for that.
