> Mitch, just a small note about laughter & how it affects you. Check over http://www.sleepdisorderchannel.net/narcolepsy/symptom.shtml especially the cataplexy part. Note that it may not be obvious to others & the fact it happens during intense emotional states. Mine occured with laughter coupled with previous stress or exhaustion.

IsoM,

I have also been thinking about this concept of "tactile hallucination" in the last several days. I have had several experiences during the daytime (esp. while I am driving for some reason), where it seems that I can "feel" the visual topography around me. It actually seems like the visual representation of the ground and scenery around me is attached to my *skin* somehow, and I can sense it's texture with my skin, although it is just a visual phenomenon. I don't know how that might tie-in to the narcolepsy stuff you unearthed, or whether that is some sort of temporal lobe anomaly.

Mitch
