IT Colleague (Neurology)

April 16, 2007 jeansdream

Funny I was talking to a colleague (in IT Architecture) who was studying neurology at university – note an interesting correlation – previously dealing with nerves, now with cables.  🙂  .  So I asked him about the neurologist’s explanation on dreams.  He said it’s the time when the brain reorganized and processed memories.  Then I asked him about sleep talking (that I have) and sleep walking (that I don’t have).  He said that’s Stage-4 dream where you were not conscious about the actions taken (or something like that) but your body / muscles were so conditioned to do things without actually being “interactive” to the environment – in my own words, your brain wasn’t conditionally processing environmental input but you were just going by your (projected?) memory to take actions.  Some people actually “woke up” to prepare a meal, or drive somewhere – wishful thinking in action – that’s a Stage-4 Sleep.  

Wonder has anyone study people who does sleep-walking – put the subject in a new environment or even blinkfold the subject on the way to the new environment (so that eliminates the conditioning portion) and see if they can sleep walk the same like in a familiar environment… nah… it won’t work.  An experiment should be designed to test the theory and that theory alone, which any scientist will tell you – it is not easy to design (a good experiment).  How do you know “this” is a direct result and the only result of “that”.

Of course, it would be interesting to see how a neurologist explain visions from God, via dreams.  That’s not memory, not even imagination that had occurred, just prophecy.  🙂

Perhaps I should ask him about this next time.
