@BlueStar cranky little argumentive foxes should not be allowed to stay up all night 😛
Don't you agree guys?
@chwefror21 @thatbabyboy @Littleivo I had a glimpse of it once, where I was aware of dreaming, but usually I´m a 'watcher' in my dreams ... and since I read all these stories about sleep paralysis sometimes happening in association with lucid dreams, I don´t dare to try it.
I was scared of the dark as a kid, and even reading about not being able to move in the dark makes me shiver ... even if the 'risk' may be small.
@BlueStar @thatbabyboy @Littleivo I remember as a child waking up « paralysed » after having a lucid dream. It lasted for several seconds but it was scary enough. In fact sleep paralysis is nothing more than a mechanism to avoid that you hurt yourself while sleeping/dreaming 😊
Lucid dreaming has been known and practiced since ancient time. It is part of the ancient Hindu practice of yoga nidra and the Tibetan practice of dream yoga. Aristotle referred also to lucid dreaming.
@chwefror21 @thatbabyboy @Littleivo Yes, it interesting that the brain basically 'cut' every motor inervation of non-relevant muscles while sleeping, and still keep important structures (like the heart or the diaphragm) running.
Didn´t know it was so old, but I know there are a lot of guides and instructions for it.
It really sounds awesome ... but again, even the thought of being unable to move in the dark terrifies me😅
@chwefror21 @thatbabyboy @Littleivo Comparing an amoeba to a supercomputer is an insult for the amoeba ... all the metabolic processes that take place in mere fractions of seconds could never be computet ... not to mention brain capacities😂
In science, you are supposed to look for alternatives for animal use ... apparantly, a neuroscientist at our campus once asked the IT if they could simulate a brain😂😂 (of course they couldn't)
- non of the above
- basically nothing without a human operator
(Of course it depends on the definition of intelligence ... ask a fish to climb a tree, and you will call it dumb for sure😂)
