Parasomnias Hallucinations Explained

I only responded to this post to say that while the medical diagnosis of hypnagogia can put some people at ease that what they are experiencing is normal, there are situations and experiences in this sleep state that can not be explained by medicine or science.

I'm not looking for a retort from you and I do not want to argue but I figure you can offer one explannation and I will offer another.

First a response is not an argument its a discussion.
Study parasomnias, look at sleep studies where the brain is monitored. These studies show where the activities occur.
The cortex is responsible for the content of dreams, including the monsters we flee from, the feelings of out of body experiences, the people we meet, or the experience of flying. Since we are highly visual animals the visual cortex, right at the back of the brain, is especially active, but so are many other parts of the cortex.

Least active are some parts of the frontal lobes, and this may explain why we can be so uncritical during dreams, accepting the crazy events as though they are real – until we wake up. The problem occurs with those who fail to think critically when they are awake.
Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.
