Sometimes I have dreamless sleeps, where I see black and a second later, wake up. But then it is morning.

I've changed my mind, though. Now I think, instead of it being possible not to think, it is only possible not to conciously think.

I think you always subconciously think about things.

You probably just forgot your dreams. I doubt it is possible to have a dreamless sleep, because when you sleep, your eyeballs turn toward your brain and you enter the realm of your imagination.

So does that mean that if you sleep with your eyes open you don't dream?

No, I remember, it was totally black and in an instant my mother shook me awake.

Well you were probably thinking something, btw, it is not very easy to conciously think all the time, either. It is almost impossible. No offense intended, yoo_hoo, but you didn't prove much with that statement. It's already known because people sleep and you can't be concious all the time, so how can you think conciously all the time?

You conciously think in some dreams. You think, where should I go, the treasure chest or the gold mines?

Or , should I go to the dungeon or the gallows?

You're not exactly concious. Concious means a state of awareness of your surroundings. you are only aware of what is going on in your mind, not the world around you.

Well, you know you are thinking. You are talking about state of body, I'm talking about state of mind. Only thing you don't know is that it was a dream.

The state of not thinking is akin to Nirvana, not the band, but the spiritual state of teh soul.

I was talking about state of mind, your mind is what is aware of things, but your body helps your mind. A dream takes place in your imagination and do you think for yourself in your dreams or do the events just happen? The events just happen to me. I rarely think in my dreams.

Maybe so, but as you yourself have admitted, you're weird.

I think slightly, but not as much as I do when I am not sleeping.

You actually think? No just kidding.

I can not think some times, when I'm trying to. I can picture black paint over my mind. Does that count as thinking? When I think about my mind going blank, it does.

I can sit in the imaginary world in my head
and stare off into nothing and not think about
anything other than visualizing what's right
in front of me. Does that count?

I'm totally serious about this.
