The Demon on Your Chest and Other Terrifying Tales of Sleep Paralysis - I have experienced this terrible thing. I awoke, paralyzed, to see a white rabbit sitting on my chest, weighing every part of me down. I could not scream. (I feel it was also the spirit of the dead white rabbit who died from my neglect when I was a kid. Could be. You see, as the Origami Universe infolds Meaning for all beings, it also folds in alternate realities - little superstates. So, sleep paralysis could both be the broken reticular system AND ALSO the spirit of a dead rabbit. It doesn't have to be one or the other. Same deal with "after-life" experiences). I have figured out how to elicit it: In the system, there must be alcohol, sugar and tiredness. And, being buried under too-warm blankets will do the (rabbit) trick. It probably also helps to be physiologically predisposed to it. Perhaps Orthostatic Intolerance, (see above), which involves the same reticular system, has some influence.
