I was studying up on sleep paralysis, when I came across this article:
The article basically explains that people who experience alien abductions during sleep paralysis, generally (prior to abduction) “hold a wide range of New Age beliefs…” which make them prone to having hallucinations or dreams reflecting fantasy or the paranormal.
So if this is true (read the article in full)…. couldn’t visions of gods and angels be attributed to the halucinatory sleep paralysis of people who submerse their conscious and subconscious minds in religious beliefs?
Christians… what do you think?
Atheists…. what do you think?
it seems like most stories about people seeing or hearing angles start out, “He came to me in the night.. in the corner of my bedroom”.
or something like that.
Temporal lobe seizures also attribute to deja vu, out of body, ‘heavenly music’, and euphoric ‘angelic’ encounters. Oliver Sacks wrote a book called Musicophilia that I think you’d really enjoy.
I’m suggesting that sleep paralysis attributes to the more… almost tangable encounters that people have had throughout the centuries.
