I heard the door bell rang or did I thought, I heard ?

Albeit the accoustomed surrounding, I was bit dazed and glanced at the wall clock - it was 2.30am

The built-in caution surfaced to resist me from opening the main door -

The analytical system of the brain began to provide couple of optional steps to take

And logically concluded at - to wait for the bell to ring again because

Anyone out there would obviously expect that to stir people out of sound sleep, one ring wouldn't do

Well, the bell didn't ring again !

It took me a long time to find sleep again and the first think I did in the morning was to search for a valid reason behind this phenominon

I learnt that the subconscious mind never rests, keeps mind wandering and the Prefrontal Cortex of the brain is quite active with creativity &

I believe the 'thalamus' part of the brain takes over the job of transferring these creative images, sounds etc that originated at 'cortex'

To and as 'dreams' which on and off make us belive, as real as a concious event

So next time, when a bell rings in your mind be happy that your Upper system is well in order :)

Have you ever heard the door bell ring in the middle of a night ?
