I was assuming that "persistant vegetative state"
was what was being discussed in the media; but it seems many people are wrongly labelled. They may be paralysed but still here in ordinary-type awareness and understand what is being said.

The theory I came up with was re: the most extreme; but there might be no-one in such a state. This theory seemed tidy: why someone sleep walk? Because during the night-time recycling of the day's events they come across stumbling blocks so they need stepping stones (a walk) to continue sleeping peacefully?

Why someone walk-sleep (keep recycling events: travel at light-speed; keep stumbling; be "comatose as in "comma- tose" as in "keep pausing")?

Maybe because something "they were sleeping on" (some unfulfilled dream)(a desired stepping stone) became "too peaceful" (too hard to get a grip of)(too slippery) so maybe they need stumbling blocks to gradually create traction and get a grip and regain a hold of their dream?

So don't go for a walk but go for a "sleep" while awake? Seems the best thing is to provide anyone comatose with access to fresh breezes, sunshine, human contact and surfing-like imagery?
