Sleep is time travel (in my opinion)

Sleep has long been a subject of fascination and mystery for humans. We know that it is necessary to our well-being, but we do not necessarily understand why or what exactly happens during sleep. However, in recent years there have been theories proposed about the nature of sleep which suggest that when we dream, we are actually travelling through time.

The first key factor supporting this theory is quantum entanglement, also known as “spooky action at a distance”. This phenomenon was discovered by Albert Einstein and states that two particles can remain connected regardless of how far apart they are in space; one particle will be affected by changes to another particle even if they are not physically close together. Quantum entanglement could explain why dreams sometimes seem so strange and disconnected — because it suggests the possibility of our consciousness being spread across multiple points throughout time and space.

Another factor backing up the idea that dreaming may be related to time travel is lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming occurs when you become aware within your dream state; those experiencing lucid dreaming report greater control over their dreams than usual, such as being able to fly or change scenery at will. This suggests the possibility of conscious navigation through different times and places while asleep — in other words, time travelling whilst Dreaming! There have even been reports from people claiming to have experienced premonitions while dreaming - potential glimpses into future events!

Furthermore, take into account the passing of a loved one. Physically, you will never see them again. However, oftentimes you see them in your dreams, which in turn establishes that you are travelling back in time to a memory of them. When travelling forward in time, you do not recognize your surroundings because they have yet to occur. Theoretically this could be a link to the phenomenon of Deja vu.

Researchers at Harvard conducted a study on mice where they found evidence suggesting memory storage during sleep works differently than awake memory storage (Miles et al., 2017). The results indicated memories were stored with much more clarity when asleep compared with awake periods; thus leading scientists closer towards understanding what might be happening in our brains whilst sleeping – conceivably activities relating to traversing through various points in spacetime rather than just storing away memories for later recall. Overall these findings lend support toward claims about sleeping being linked with time travelling.

In conclusion, there are several pieces of evidence indicating sleeping may indeed be related to time travel. From theories involving Quantum Entanglement, insights gained from lucid dreamers, and scientific studies showing improved memory storage during sleep; all these point us towards believing Sleep really may involve adventures outside linear dimensions.

The next time you fall asleep, try going into your sleep period with a purpose. Use your sleep as a second phase in your day. Look forward to it. Study it. Enjoy it. - WG
