Very interesting, I can see why sleep deprivation causes a person to go crazy! Best to enjoy being crazy in our dreams!

Y'ep stress reliever.  Your brain is allowed the fantasies to unload and take out the lousy things in your life w/o consequences. :thumb:

Nine times out of ten, I'm aware that I'm dreaming, and can choose and control some of what happens.
Sometimes, during a dream that seems like real life, I'll test if it is or not by trying to fly.
That's a lot of fun when it works!

I've often said I do some of my best work in bed.  :cool: :boozing:
Many times, I will wake up and know the answer to a problem I've been working on.. or a different way of solving it.
