Sleeping Wife Reads My Mind


It was 1983 or possibly 1984, near Cincinnati, OH (I've forgotten the month and day).

It was about 10:30 PM when we went to bed. She went straight to sleep. I had my own reading lamp, and was sitting in bed reading several computer related magazines. I was searching for available memory expansion boards for my new Tandy 1000 PC. I wanted a memory board capable of using the 640 bytes already installed on the motherboard and an additional 360 bytes of memory on a memory expansion card to achieve 1 Megabyte of main memory. Back then that was all a Intel 8088 CPU could address.

I was feeling excited about all the possibilities. Tandy had its own magazine, which was full of tips, tricks, and other better processors than the Intel 8088. I felt like a kid in a candy store with a 20 dollar bill..., using that kind of money to gorge myself on all kinds of candy.

I found what I think was a 2 speed V20 processor that was pin for pin compatible with the Intel chip. I had to have that! My computer was running at about 3.4 Megahertz, and the new chip would possibly run upwards of 8 Megahertz. So I was comparing prices in different magazines, for these different components. I kept going back and forth through these magazines asking myself which part I would order first, whether or not I should install a 3.5" disk drive, and a Seagate Hard drive. So many possibilities!

While I'm marking up my magazines and folding the corners for easy reading later, my wife suddenly rolled over (still asleep, eyes closed) and says something about what I should do first! And immediately rolls back over sound asleep.

My jaw just about hit the floor! It was like she could read my mind. I had to digest what just happened. I thought "she was reading my mind!" She doesn't know anything at all about computers, vendors or hardware, not even software. Then I thought, what if she could read my mind while I'm awake? Worse yet, what if she could read my mind while I'm asleep?

I was a little rattled by the experience. I apologize for not being more specific about what she said, but it was technical, and she had no knowledge of what she was talking about.

I was awake and thinking pretty hard, and she was dead asleep. Interesting configuration! Never tried to recreate the experience.

Incidentally, I purchased the "Dr.ZuckerBoard," that was livin' high on the hog!

I also purchased and installed an internal 1200 bps modem. Imagine the speed!

This memory makes me laugh, because there is no comparison with the computer I'm using now. And just several years ago I gave the whole system away to an older user who was still using his Tandy. I cleaned up the hard drive, and the system clock was still keeping the correct time, well past Y2K. Wasn't that a joke?!

that was an awesome story. That would intrigue me so, If that had have happened to me. I've read minds a long time ago, and to this day, I still remember what their thoughts were. It's unlike your thoughts and memories. It's like remembering a vivid movie from way back

Itabu and AnneV, I really appreciate your comments. This experience I had only happened once.

My oldest son at the age of 7 or 8 used to talk in his sleep. We could talk to him, and he would answer. My wife said that I would occassionally talk in my sleep. As a child, she used to have night terrors, running through the house asleep, but screaming terrified.

Dreams and visions seem similar in nature I think..., kind of like a bridge we may cross to talk with others in a altered state of mind. No Drugs.

I've heard stories that wifes would talk to their husbands to get information..., just stories, I think.

Itabu, having, rather sharing a dream is something I've never considered or experienced. I can't imagine what that is like. That would be fantastic!

AnneV, I'm sure somewhere there are scientist and engineers that are working on a device that would allow multiple users to interact. Scary thought..., that technology might be a way to "hack" a person's brain to get information from an unwilling participant. I don't think I'd volunteer for testing.

However, considering that as a tool to communicate with people in a coma could be a great invention to save people's life.

Consciousness and technology? Could present some fascinating applications.

God Bless You Both, ❤ ❤

Thank you for this post it's very enlightening... I once, recently actually, had an experience where a friend and I were having what seemed to be a full on conversations while we were both asleep. Sleep is a fickle state and with a very open set of definitions in my opinion. Also, thank you to Anne who has given me the brilliant idea to have my fiance test me in the same way, to see if he can mentally speak to me as I believe sleep talking runs in my family line.
Thank you both very much!
Jolene ❤ 😊

Thoughts are just like radio waves. We generally can't hear other people's thoughts because of our dense physical filter (our body). However, when we sleep, we shift into the etheric and can hear thoughts. I've tested this numerous times when I was once dating a sleep talker. I could mentally "talk" to him and he would reply back, out loud, the answer.

Thanks for sharing.
