Midnight Cowboying – Where does your soul go when you sleep?

When you close your eyes and become a viking, do you actually become a viking in a realm far, far away?  I have often wondered about this, does your soul go on holiday when the sand man comes? Does your essence travel the universe leaving just your body here while you sleep?

I have long believed that our entire universe is just an quantum reaction to a system above us. And that our own atomic reactions are entire big bangs to implosions of universes below us. In a mobius strip structure, the loop of bigger to smaller is infinitely looping. To where the system above us is actually infinitely big, but going down the other direction of the mobius strip it is infinitely small. Vice versa for the one below us.

There are also infinite dimensions that have branched off in what we consider to our universe-centric spot on the mobius strip. In another dimension on this same spot, you never read this, and a whole new universe was created. Not only are the chains infinitely big and small below us, each level is also infinitely dense.

So who is to say when we sleep our soul does not surf these dimensions, maybe echoing as ghosts in other parallel worlds. Or maybe something even crazier. What if you visit only slices of life in the life of your essence in that dimension? And how you act is only one part in the overall wikiing of the experience that dictates how it happens? And all your other selves also have that dream and the average of all your essences experience is the experience remembered by that soul in that dimensional time frame?

And what if when you wake up, your experience is nothing but the finished wiki of your soul dreaming in infinite dimensions within infinite time?

  1. Im one of the last of the Texas bad asses, lot younger than most of you, and if you introduce me to your daughter, I will break her heart.

    Me and mia ex-rosa de Baja.

  2. honors.NPK is furiously emailing by now.

  3. and the axe is sharp enough.

  4. in my dreams so I like your theory that my soul travels elsewhere. I have done everything from flying, to becoming an animal, I can’t explain that one except I was a beast with my current consciousness and awareness. I have fought killer zombies and done a few other things that I won’t disclose at the moment.

  5. I try to go to bed when I am so tired that I know I will not dream. I can do without the nightmares.

    Your essay reminds me of his attempts to grasp the vastness of the universe. 

    Personally, I dream about dead people.  Not bad dreams…very nice dreams in which I have nice visits with those who are no longer with me.

  6. you cant understand the strong force by looking at the strong force.  why wont they listen to me.

    i predict an accurate and correct unified theory of everything, eta 12-20-2012  😉

    and personally i dont think im ever completely disconnected from whatever overarches (or connects) the alternate universes…but whether i concentrate in certain places in my sleep i dont know.  if i sleep tonight, ill try to pay attention.

    it’d be cool if i could consciously coalesce all of my self into one self and be a freakish, glowing superbrat…and stare down bad people and stuff.  i’d be awesome!!

  7. when i sleep

    most recently in the waking state it was a moth in mid metamorphosis at the base of a fiddlehead fern

    I never remember to write dreams down straight away if I remember them. Then I forget. I haven’t lived in Germany for over 25 years but Mrs fd tells me that if I talk in my sleep it’s often in German. Fortuitously she cannot understand what I am saying.

  8. The question isn’t whether dreams are real.

    It’s whether the world is a really a dream.

    of America thinks I have no soul.

    Fooled them.

    My soul goes to the craps table.  36 red.

    I would create tigers in my dreams.

    As it happens, I’m not Borges, so I battle zombies.

    it’s totally screwy and not at all like the real one…yet it’s always consistent, like the various hills. There’s a downtown pyramidal hill and then one towards what must be Van Ness, although it’s wildly not Van Ness, and then there’s the hill near the beach…

    But I’ve never flown around there.

    The “Liberty League/Business Plot” types later switched their political hopes to one Gen. Douglas MacArthur, who led the troops in the rousting/roasting of the “Bonus Army”.

    Thank you Harry Truman.
