Gioconda Belli on Sleep

According to the oriental beliefs, while a person is sleeping,
the spirit separates from the body and makes
astral voyages to the other planes of existence.
Sleep was an odd state: like going off the air : “little death”

(In The Inhabited Woman by Gioconda Belli, Translated by Kathleen March)
