REM + Imagination

Testing an exercise for clawback of REM... stuff to do while waiting for code to compile, programs to install/uninstall/download, call centre agents to pick up, etc.

Close eyes to shut off SNS optic input. Render spatial models into visual consciousness from CNS optic input. Initial tests have been productive - got to do more tests.

I think what's happening is that to pay attention to immediate work, I often have to force-off my CNS optic input. Then I forget to turn it back on when I'm off mission-critical work (i.e. forget to allow myself to day-dream) so explicit force-on of CNS optic output helps to restore normal functionality.

The side effect of CNS inputs feeding into consciousness is that the control signals output to the MNS are decoupled (i.e. what naturally happens when we sleep/dream). So REM results just from antagonistic behaviour of relaxed ocular muscles which are then flexing in an uncoordinated fashion.
