Alpha (relaxed awake) brain waves and Theta (restorative sleep) brain waves don’t occur at the same time EXCEPT for a minute or two during hypnagogia transition. The state also reduces activity in the prefrontal cortex of the brain, which is involved in planning, decision-making and social behavior. Unlike during REM sleep, you are conscious enough to be partially aware of what's going on, however, ideas are soon forgotten once sleep occurs.
During hypnagogia, the mind is cycling through thoughts, ideas, memories and emotions. We experience dream-like visions, sounds, tactile senses, flashes of color, insights, sensations, hyper-definition visual imagery and moving scenery. Hypnagogia can generate creative insights and “aha” moments during this short path to the subconscious intuitive mind. For a brief time, a free flow of ideas, associations and sometimes solutions appear but are sadly forgotten once deep sleep sets in - until now!
The Edison Hypnagogia Idea App is simple and customizable to take full advantage of this brief transition from consciousness. You simply launch the app, tap “Begin”, stand device upright on mattress by gently gripping with fingertips, tilted slightly away, so device will fall flat and trigger timer as you fall asleep. When you see the prompt “What’s your idea?”, you have the option to type, voice record, or speak to text to record your idea. Tomorrow morning you will receive a notification to “Check last night’s idea”. It’s that simple!
And it’s customizable - you can choose between a 1 second and 7 minute hypnagogia notification window. The default 90 seconds is recommended for beginners. It takes a few nights to get the hang of it because your brain is trying NOT to drop your device, but soon you’ll learn “that’s the whole point” and you will relax and fall asleep naturally. Keep in mind as you are alerted awake that you will sometimes think “that was the dumbest idea I’ve ever had” (record the idea anyway for practise and a good laugh and to share with your friends) and sometimes you will say “that idea is pure genius, why didn’t I think of that (you just did).” Ideas and insights generated don’t always work in the real world, but sometimes they do!. And if you're an artist looking for ideas, the mind is the limit. Enjoy!
