Sleep eventually takes your awareness from you, and, at the end, you don’t even resist.
Asleep now. Initialization of nREM startup program in progress.
Stop. Evaluate time elapsed since last sleep-reprogramming. Identify areas of concern.
Rank items of concern in priority order,
Schedule upcoming REM cycle to allow the “playing out” out of necessary “real-word” drama to address the top priority concern. Maintain focus on that concern until it is replaced by another one, new, and of more importance. Keep an eye on all areas of past conflict, while watching for new ones, hoping for early detection.
If unavoidable, implement “the best you can fake it” multitasking coping-mode.
Realize that memory of this sleeping activity will be fragmentary at best.
Know also, nonetheless, that you are the one one writing the program, at both ends of the consciousness-spectrum, the autism spectrum, and any other spectra I find myself standing on.
To answer the obvious question: yes, this blog-post is deliberately being written in the grey zone between sleep and wakefulness. If parts of it make no sense, that’s the reason.
Note upon waking: I found this, written but not published, on my computer, when my alarm clock went off. I guess I’ll post it now!
