The Point of Sleep Initiation

This is fantastic! I've often contemplated the point where sleep starts, when that exactly is, what happens at that point etc, mainly because you never witness it and just wake up in the morning realising you've been asleep. I've thought about setting up a microphone and recording the transition phase. However just yesterday I inadvertently managed to record this on paper. Here is the scanned evidence of how it happened. Take a look at my : sleep : page for a full account.


Starts off normally


Few errors creep in as I feel sleepy


More errors and some loss of letters


Sentences not completed, letters missing... and then I dropped off


Re-awakened and mind fully functioning
