comics for May 19, 2008 – 05/19/2008
I’m telling you Dan is evil
just look at his hair…he has devil horns.
So someone else noticed that? I thought I had just gone mad!
He needs some mousse.
Errr… no R.E.M sleep forever means death… but oh well, this is fantasy
Actually, no REM sleep doesn’t necessarily mean death… it means psychosis, deep-rooted insanity, but not death. Same thing as lack of ANY sleep doesn’t automatically mean death.
Perhaps it’s just that he’s never in REM when he wakes up.
He’s the one to look for explanation in. He’s got banned from entering Dreamland. It’s Nick’s result of his wish (and actions) to close the door for humans to Dreamland.
That’s my theory anyway.
There is a Chinese man who hasn’t slept for thirty years and is fine, but yes, for normal people sleep is necessity.
Yeah, no REM state means he would essentially be sleep deprived. There is no point in sleeping beyond REM, that’s why we sleep is to achieve it. He wouldn’t neccasarily be dead, but he would be pretty mentally messed up. Imagine a kid who has never slept a day in his life.
Sleep deprivation actually has a much more limited effect then most people can imagine, but I don’t think Nicole would just write it off if she heard he didn’t get any REM.
Well, if his brother goes brain dead the instant he hits REM, then who’s to say his twin doesn’t have another really wild and unexplainable place he goes? Such as “the place of utter blackness and forgetting about it?”
Has anyone ever thought that maybe in real life all of our creative writers and authors who make these fantasy places dont have their own ‘Dreamland’ of sorts and thats where they get their work
I write a lot of stories based on my more interesting dreams. Most of them turn out to be science fiction or fantasy…
I write stories sometimes and that’s definitely not the case with me. My dreams aren’t anywhere near as coherent.
Is Nicole getting the lust for another experimental subject?
Or just regular lust?
Or your SATAN!!
Dan is probably the king, that would be a good reason why he had been barred form dreamland, but having a twin mixed it all up.
Now THAT’s an interesting theory – now we’re cookin’!
how do you train yourself to remember dreams?
not that I’d want to remember mine, they’re all queer
Um… dream yoga?
Actually prolonged lack of REM sleep leads to the brain shutting down one region at a time…then siezures…then death.
I’ve figured it out! Dan doesn’t dream, because his brain is the SERVER. THAT’s where Dreamland is …
(Okay, probably not really a spoiler; I haven’t yet read past this page … )
i’m surprised he as not gone nuts by now, people who don’t dream lose their minds.
Some states of REM don’t reach sensory levels, oddly enough…either you just don’t remember them at all or they don’t process as a sensory state.
Nicole has got to be thinking Doctorate Thesis! Yeah, let’s get you hooked up to some EEGs and verify your claims empirically, ‘kay then?
Woah, that would be crazy if Danny boy would be the kind. D:
I was hoping for something more interesting for the 666th comic…
