Category: Mouse FIELD

Sleep and Consciousness Research Graph
First night using the FIELD mouse (and that pun will probably never get old). I had my mouse duct taped to my hand, and I messed around with it for like an hour and a half trying to get it comfortable. Finally I did, and I ended falling asleep around 2:30, forgetting to actually hold down the button.

However upon waking I discovered that I held down the button 3 times for a very long time. Once from 3:04am to 3:45am, after that there was some small movement and then another click just long enough to trigger it again. Next one was from 5:53am to 6:34 (featured), another flurry of movement. And the last one was from 7:09 to 7:25, just before I woke up, the movement was delayed by 30+ seconds this time.

If any of those were from me dreaming, I didn’t experience/remember any of them. It’s quite likely that I was just laying on my hand or something. I also woke with my headset unplugged so the delay in movement on the third “dream” could have been from that. Though just a note, if these were dreams, it would mean that the songs were triggered just after they ended, so it might be a good idea to have a version where the song is triggered after oh 10-20 minutes of holding down the mouse.

I woke up feeling very refreshed for only having had 5 hours of sleep, so I’ll definitely be doing this again, hoping for better results though.

2012-01-25 – FIELD 15

Lucid Scribe Data
Day 15. I had a vivid non-lucid dream, a lot of dream characters resembled people I knew in waking life.

It was so real, but I couldn’t tell if I was dreaming, started to have feelings passed into the dreams.

I think I’ll just record days I do the FIELD instead of adding days I don’t since I haven’t had the chance to practice the FIELD before Jan. 25th because I was getting adjusted to my college schedule.

And I also would wake up with only 30 minutes to get to my first class of the day, so it was just too stressful for me at the time.

2012-01-17 – FIELD Day 14

Lucid Scribe Data
Since I wanted to be sure to wake up early for my classes, I finally had my other alarm clock other than the online timer on to wake me up at a certain time.

When I didn’t hear it, actually, I ignored it at first, and then wondered if I was dreaming. I realized there was a small blackout that made the alarm clock reset and blink constantly.

2012-01-16 – FIELD DAY 13

Lucid Scribe Data
Eh, I barely remembered some of the dreams I had early morning. I took another nap late in the afternoon (because I can actually wake up late since I only have two classes, and one starts at noon).

I’m going to have to sleep earlier later in the week because I have a Biology Lab on Wednesday at around 8 AM, so I won’t be doing this kind of sporadic sleeping for long.

2012-01-15 – FIELD Day 12

Lucid Scribe Data
I finally had a lucid dream near the end of the dream (probably;I most likely just let go of the mouse to go into a non-lucid state).

I woke up with the mouse on the top corner of my bed, so I probably moved it while I held on to clicking it.

It was an afternoon nap by the way (around 4PM and woke up around 6:40 PM)

2012-01-14 – FIELD Day 11

Falling Asleep Holding Mouse
I took an afternoon nap since I wouldn’t have had time early morning.

It was around 2:12PM I slept and I woke up at around 4:30 PM.

My dreams are starting out like a video game simulation (sometimes, and I still believe it’s due to holding the mouse and my mind associating that with games), I think might use that as my cue to know I’m dreaming, and holding the mouse wasn’t so bad, guess I’m getting used to it now.

2012-01-13 – Field Day 10

Lucid Scribe Data
I didn’t recall any dreams when using the program. I think I’m going to wake up after 2-3 hours of sleep, because I think my body is used to just getting 6 hours instead (and I usually have trouble sleeping back unless I know have extra time on my hands).

I might have to do this for college because I wouldn’t want to oversleep and miss my classes.

2012-01-12 – Day 8 and 9 FIELD

Mouse Sleep Alarm
For Day 8, I completely forgot to do it because I woke up pretty early and felt like going back to sleep. I was just too sleepy to even gather enough effort.

Day 9, I did two WBTB with the FIELD, recalled 4 dreams overall from those two attempts.

Mouse Sleep Alarm
Things went smoothly this time. No distractions. Recalled 4 dreams after I recalled 2 dreams before taping the mouse again and did a WBTB. (I found that taping the little sensor on the bottom prevents the mouse from moving, so I don’t have to worry about right clicking anymore).

2012-01-09 – FIELD Day 6

Mouse Sleep Alarm
I was probably going to have a WILD thanks to this method, but someone woke me up to say that there’s a tornado warning. And the tornado didn’t even affect where I lived.

So they basically stole over one hour worth of me remaining still, and I was so relaxed. It seems I’m solving problems more than solving the technique’s process itself.

I feel like giving up, but if I do that, I’ll get nowhere, but honestly, if people wake me up often, I swear I’m going to strangle someone.
