HYPNAGOGIA

So I finally uploaded "Hypnagogia" to YouTube last night, the quality is a bit pixelated but I will get a more solid version on my website at a later date.



I titled it Hypnagogia after the sleeping state.
There are 8 hypnagogic stages. This state can occur between the sleep-wake cycle, with vivid hallucinations, falling sensations, and auditory sensations that are not really recognizable, "normal" sounds. People can also appear to be fully awake, even though their brain waves are still asleep. This is also the period when people have sleep terrors, sleepwalk, and/or take part in lucid dreaming.

"Coelum non animum mutant qui trans mare currunt."-Horace
translation -
Those who hurry cross the sea only change the sky upon them,
not their souls or state of minds.


A stork once got into an argument with his wife and he pecked out her eye with his beak. The stork was ashamed that he had done her such a great injury, so he flew off into another land. The crow ran into him and asked the reason for his journey. The stork said that he had pecked out his wife's eye with his beak. The crow replied: "Don't you still have the same beak?" The stork said yes. The crow then said: "So why are you running away, since, wherever you go, you carry your beak with you?" This is true also for those who commit many sins and who run away into another land or into a monastery. They nevertheless always carry with them their beak, their wickedness, their means of sinning, the Devil contained inside them. They change the sky, not their state of mind. [...]
