About This Event


Event Description:

Human dreams are a great mystery. When we are awake and in a dream, we similarly experience emotions, and this affects how we feel when we wake up. What happens in the dream that makes us afraid of falling asleep? The answer lies in sleep paralysis, a “supernatural” experience that, according to some studies, is experienced by 40% of the population at least once in a lifetime. A feeling of complete alertness, an inability to move, a feeling of chest pressure and suffocation, so who would not be afraid to fall asleep after this experience?
