Sleep As a Teleportation Device

One of my ingenious 4th grade students admitted that he had trouble falling asleep. I asked him what he did to combat his insomnia.

He replied:
"Sometimes I like to pretend that I am not really sleeping, but teleporting to the next day."

He went on to say that he closes his eyes and tells himself when he opens them again, it will magically be tomorrow.


I decided to design my own personal teleportation device to visualize when I have insomnia. Here it is:


  1. I think the kid's idea is really clever, but if I tried visualizing your device, I think it would keep me up at night! :-D

  2. I love the idea of transporting yourself to the next day in your head, what a creative kid. I love your machine by the way, it would give me psychedelic dreamscapes...:)

  3. Jack- Yeah, I was free-drawing and thinking about teleportation, but you are so right! HAHAHAHA! I think it would keep me up too! That kid is clever in general!

    Ahhhh psychedelic dreamscapes, it's almost as exciting as the ATP Synthase couch!
