What is Missing Time?

In 1998, a mysterious man that Whitley Strieber calls the Master of the Key burst into his hotel room in Toronto and told him all kinds of things he didn't know--but when he checked them out later, he found out they were TRUE (The new, UNCENSORED edition of The Key, with a foreword that talks about how many of his statements later turned out to be true, is in bookstores NOW).

One of his statements was that "there are many universes," which led Whitley to discover the concept of parallel universes, which quantum physicists feel definitely exist (in fact, that may be where the "Visitors" come from). Is this how the UFO phenomenon known as "missing time" works?

If you've ever lost your keys or stuck the milk in the cupboard and the cereal in the refrigerator, you may have been the victim of a tired brain region that was taking a quick nap. Maybe if WE could travel to other worlds, we wouldn't have to try so hard to figure out what's going on. One of the few of MOTKE's provocative statement that Whitley could NOT check out was his declaration that we are stuck on this planet because the parents of the child who would have given us the ability to travel into space was killed in the holocaust!

Researchers have found that some nerve cells in a sleep-deprived yet awake brain can briefly go “off line,” into a sleep-like state, while the rest of the brain appears awake. Psychiatrist Chiara Cirelli says, "Even before you feel fatigued, there are signs in the brain that you should stop certain activities that may require alertness. Specific groups of neurons may be falling asleep, with negative consequences on performance." Until now, scientists thought that sleep deprivation generally affected the entire brain. Cirelli says, "We know that when we are sleepy, we make mistakes, our attention wanders and our vigilance goes down. We have seen with EEGs that even while we are awake, we can experience shorts periods of 'micro sleep.'" And contactees know that this is something that can be INDUCED.

I don't get the connection between the concept of multi universes which you discuss in the first two paragraphs and the concept of micro sleep in the last two paragraphs.

Was this supposed to be two different articles? Is the sleep article missing a header?

If not are you trying to make a case that perceiving worlds while asleep (dreaming) is actually traveling to other universes?

The thirld paragraph doesn't help tie any of the ideas presented in this article together.


It's not just you, WayfaringDreamer, this article was a jumble, in part I think because practically every article these days is also a plug for The Key. And the link between missing time and sleep-deprivation is, what exactly?

More likely is that the ability of the visitors to create "missing time" is just like how certain anasthetics work, like Midazolam, which induce amnesia by altering the effect of neurotransmitters. It's like the brain functions fairly normally, but its ability to store to memory is severely impaired. People can do fairly complex tasks under the influence of such drugs, yet have no memory afterward of what transpired (I know, since I participated in a study of stroke patients at Columbia Presbyterian involving anasthetics.) And there were no parallel universes involved! (well, at least not that we're aware of.)

The visitors seem to be able to do this same thing at some distance, possibly using certain electromagnetic fields, or similar effects that we might not yet understand.

There's something else going on here, I can almost guarantee, but if I'm right it's something where discretion is the better part of virtue.
