    Pila Mulligan: we were chatting about pre-sleeping and dreaming
    Mickorod Renard: I was facinated recently to here that one of the boat race teams were using a similar technique in seeing themselves rowing to the finnish line in first place
    Pila Mulligan: I wonder if that's unfair, Mick :)
    Pila Mulligan: ... using dreams to win
    Nymf Hathaway: :) I think it works
    sophia Placebo: why is that pila?
    Pila Mulligan: kind of a joke, Sophia, like athletes using steroids for advantage
    sophia Placebo: hehe :)
    Mickorod Renard: well, i think it must leave some memory imprint in the subconcious,,that enforces the confidence
    sophia Placebo: it must have a memory imprint in the subcouncious about the path and the condetions of that place i guess
    Mickorod Renard: yes,,it worked for me,,i am sure
    Mickorod Renard: its funny you mentioned steroids Pila,,one my doctor prescribed me some for a wrist injury,,i couldnt sleep at all,,i wanted to go out running during the night with wolves i the woods
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Pila Mulligan: sounds unhealthy
    sophia Placebo: :))
    Mickorod Renard: he he he
    Nymf Hathaway: :))
    sophia Placebo: i dont know if someone notice this but i noticed it after i knew that
    Mickorod Renard: ?
    sophia Placebo: patients who undrwent surgical operation and anasthesia wake up in the same mood and same needs and same words they gone asleep with
    Mickorod Renard: ohh,,didnt know that
    Pila Mulligan: that is interesting, Sophia
    sophia Placebo: if they were feeling cold befor operation they would wake up feeling cold too
    sophia Placebo: now i just noticed this but many times , when some melody play in my mind befor going asleep , sometimes it requre afer awakining
    sophia Placebo: not many *
    Pila Mulligan: I often awaken with a song in my mind, left over from dreaming it seems
    Mickorod Renard: many years ago my dentist gave me sodium pentathol for an op, he had a gorgeous assistant,,i ended up having the most rude sexual dream under the operation ,,when I awoke the y were looking at me very strangely
    Pila Mulligan: oh :)
    sophia Placebo: i wish i could remmber the nice melody i once heard in a dream :) it was something magical hehe
    Mickorod Renard: yes,,some melodies are very enchanting during dreams
    Pila Mulligan: and sometimes very original songs, too
    Pila Mulligan: that seem to be creatively related to somthing
    Mickorod Renard: I had one that was later to become released by the artist and became the no.1 in the chart
    Mickorod Renard: I described it in fine detail to my partner and friends
    Mickorod Renard: including the video

    Mickorod Renard: wow,,wierd
    Mickorod Renard: so many things are so mystical that i ,,as others I am sure ,,find them imposing on everyday life,,but i wonder sometimes whether i should move on and just be normal like others that i live with
