Waking Up in the Middle of a Good Dream

When the brain is asleep and in REM dream mode it has distinct patterns not found in normal waking states. When people who are dreaming are hooked up to machines the REM mode of sleep is quite evident. Have you ever woke up in the middle of a really good dream? Then sometimes you can fall back asleep and go right to where you left off and other times you just can't? This is a real problem for humans. I have an idea to help fix this problem.

Using very low frequency waves which interact with the brain on a very small level; a device would begin to record the fluctuations in frequencies upon the brain entering an REM state. These fluctuations would be stored on a hard drive of the device to play later. If you forgot a really good dream and wanted to re-think it in a wakeful state you could simply listen to it on a set of headphones. The sounds would not talk to you or have an actual speech audio. Instead they would produce waves similar to the dream, by using the difference of each speaker in each ear to mimic the frequency during the desired REM session while sleeping.

If you woke up in the middle of a dream you could simply turn the machine on at the point of the beginning of the dream and replay it while you fell asleep. Your mind would instantly pick back up where you left off. If you had super great dreams as we all have. You save the very best ones for positive biofeedback, which would help your positive attitude and psyche. Of course this could also boost your immune system as well. You might even find yourself in a dream, which you were running or doing strenuous exercise. Playing this back over and over again might assist your body into mimicking such a workout and turn you body onto a fat burning mode.

You challenge dreams where you had to over come a fear could be played over and over again, until you conquered the monster, fear or challenge. If in fact you had a nightmare type dream. Playing such dream as you lucid dreaming could unleash powers of the mind and be incredible for your life indeed. The system would be placed on each of the nightstands by your bed and you head would sit in the field of an ELF beam. The machine would turn on and record during the REM state and begin to record.

I propose someone build this machine and make them cheap enough for the average citizen. I propose to get the price down to under $150.00 and a website be made for dream traders, who could sell their best dreams to others on a CDROM or swap them with loved ones, relatives or those of similar genetics. Dream on this and then think about it.
