Is there something more to sleep paralysis?

- Advertisement -

When I was looking at questions on the subject, I noticed the following answer (excerpt):
I think praying before going to bed is a good suggestion..science may want to call this sleep paralysis but once you do more research on this frightening event..(don’t know what else to call it)…you will see it is more than just a “nightmare”….
So, I guess this individual was hinting at the devil or something to that effect. Hmm… so…. for boredom’s sake, is there anything in the Bible or other religious text to suggest such a thing? Is sleep paralysis always negative? I mean surely at least every now and then it’s a hot chick sitting on top of you…. lol. j/k
By God, I love it when they disregard the details! 2 more points! you’re all big winners!

The “more” is people not thinking logically. Whether you believe in God (by design) or not (evolution) it makes sense that an animal that must sleep does so with a disconnection between the brain in a dream state and the executive systems. Moving around while unconscious is hardly a safe thing to do.
I believe people find demons where they wish to find them.

If you have ever had an episode of sleep paralysis it is very scary.. You are awake and can see things but you can’t move a muscle.. scary stuff

There’s nothing more to sleep paralysis. It’s a simple condition to understand. For years, people didn’t understand it, so they assumed it was evil forces, etc…
“Paralysis while asleep is the normal condition. The body secretes hormones which relax certain muscles and prevent you from acting out your dreams. If it didn’t you would be in quite some danger every time you went to sleep.
The process of waking up might seem quite simple to you. But it’s actually a complex process involving many physiological changes. One of these is the reversal of the paralysis. People experience sleep paralysis when the hormone doesn’t wear off fast enough as they wake up. They remain paralysed though conscious. Because they have little sensation from their body, if they are lying on their backs, it can feel like someone is sitting on their chest. Eventually the paralysis departs and normal functions can be resumed.
There is an opposite disorder where people don’t get paralysed enough as they go to sleep. In a minor case this results in twitching and kicking while dreaming, but in a major case they can get up and walk around.
A side effect of this paralysis is that your bed feels a lot more comfortable in the morning when you wake up than it did when you first got into it. It hasn’t changed, your body is just less sensitive.”
LOL at your hot chick comment though…never heard anyone quite put it that way. My sleep paralysis episodes always feel like an elephant squatting on my rib cage…so maybe you have a hot very fat chick? lol
