Muse S Hypnogram - sleep/dream report

I’ve had my Muse S [previously posted about here] for several days, and I’m enjoying it so far. It’s very comfortable to sleep with and accurately tracks your sleep stages using EEG sensors. When you wake up in the morning you have a detailed sleep analysis, starting like this:

Just knowing exactly how much time I spent asleep is very useful information, but there’s a LOT more information, including how much time (and when) I was in various sleep stages. Information graphed includes:

  • sleep stages
  • deep sleep intensity
  • sleep position
  • heart rate
  • stillness

While that was going on in the physical world, I had the following dream:

I’m exploring a vast VR simulation with friends. At one point I tell a friend about the movie eXistenz; at another point I jokingly suggest the simulation is so complex, perhaps it contains the so-called ‘real world’ as well

Note: it is very unusual for me to get this much sleep in a night, but hopefully this is the start of an exciting new trend. At any rate, I can now track how I’m doing over time.

Has this helped to promote restful sleep and lucidity, or is it more of a monitoring device? I had the earlier version but didn’t find it useful enough to continue.

Umm…if I recall correctly, from your other post, you do not agree with the illusory nature of things… could you please elaborate on your perception about this? I find it interesting and would like to know more. :slightly_smiling_face:

I’ve only had it for a few days, but I’m finding getting a precise reading of my sleep patterns useful feedback. I don’t think it will directly promote lucidity.

I had considered getting a Muse device for years, but only now has it become sufficiently useful for me, so I finally got one.

Lucid dreaming, virtual reality, and other altered state experiences raise questions about the nature of reality. :slight_smile: Not sure anyone has a definitive answer on this. It is virtually certain that reality is not as it appears to naive perception. It also appears to be the case that humans are spectacularly good at convincing themselves of the truth of all kinds of fanciful notions

@ArthurG Hey Arthur, thanks for your first feedback on the muse s.

Can you switch off the bluetooth transmission during useage (and turn it back on later) ?

best regards

Bluetooth is required to be on continuously while using it; that’s how the data gets from the device to the app in your smartphone.
