through the eyelids unless you're one of those people who's eyelids don't fully
close during sleep in which case its much easier to tell during the first
sleep stage you drift in and out of sleep and be easily awoken no jerky eyes [Boy awakens as girl walks into room]
or paralyzed muscles here however so A is out if you were then to shift
in to stage two you likely try to create rhythmic brainwaves known as sleep
spindles while also dropping your body temperature and lowering your heart rate [Boy sleeping and temperature drops]
still no eye activity or paralysis in sight so it's not B next up stage 3
which is known for slow brain waves caused by delta waves that help you
transition from light sleep in to deep delta waves are the idealistic college [delta waves appear as boy sleeps]
years of the sleep cycle still doesn't fit our answer though so cross out C
then there's stage 4 a deep sleep that lasts for about 30 minutes if you really
wanted to sell stage 4 here's a tip most bedwetting occurs during this stage, still [Boy wets bed as girl walks into room]
not what we're looking for though so get rid of D...
finally there stage 5 REM sleep unsurprisingly REM or rapid eye movement [Boy sleeping as eyes move]
is characterized by yes jerky eye movement as well as muscle paralysis and
increased brain activity that causes dreams so E is the answer we're looking
for...E for everyone is laughing at you in your underwear while your teeth fall out [Man in underwear and teeth fall out as people laugh]
our subconscious is just the worst...
