I would love to read research into why people cannot relax their minds enough to go to sleep. Would you call this night dreaming?

I would be very surprised to see actual evidence that the brain turns off "empathy" when it is "analyzing." Actual evidence from studies of people who have suffered injuries to their pre-frontal cortices shows instead that without empathy, without feeling, the brain is unable to analyze and make good decisions, even when all the analytic machinery is still there.

http://www.amazon.com/Descartes-Error-Emotion-Reason-Human/dp/014303622X is just one source.

Daydreaming is an important part of my day! I feel stressed if I don't have time alone to daydream.
