I wanted to ask about hypnagogia and share my experience - and ask about yours! I'm curious to know if we all experience hypnagogia the same or differently. Often when I'm about to fall asleep, I can't tell if my eyes are open or shut, the room is dark but I can see the outlines of things. Upon further examining I realise my eyes are indeed shut but to me it feels like I can see my complete room in the dark. To say it in another way, when my eyes are shut and I'm about to fall asleep I can see a hallucination of my room (in the dark), almost what my dreaming mind thinks my room looks like, my light in a different location, my bedside table might be shifted, I might even see the bookshelf on the wrong wall or have my room navigation wrong. It's hard to explain, I hope I don't come across too crazy 😅
Another thing I sometimes see with my minds eye (but definitely has a visual aspect to it) is a game/activity/thing that I've played/done for too long. The game/thing/activity is fully functional and interactive. For example, I might see a Tetris wall with falling blocks that fall in the right place, I might have to turn a piece around to make it fit (Tetris master here 😆). Some others I can 100% remember were Rubik’s Cube's and a phone game (Clash Royal) - there are definitely common threads between them all.
Ok now that I've written this all down, am I crazy? Or do other people experience similar things? Would love to hear peoples personal experience with hypnogogia.
