He was in a sleep paralysis. Whenever you're in one, you'd hallucinate and imagine there are others around you :)

Just so you know. you don't wanna do this unless you've got balls of steel. Paralysis can cause panic, panic is fearful, and when your subconscious is exposed to fear, you start seeing things. I suffered sleep paralysis for a while and hated it, because it was never trippy or awesome. It just scares the **** out of you.

Ok I'm still confused on what sleep paralysis is. Is it just like having a nightmare? Because I don't see why that isn't normal...

Your body paralyzes you while you sleep so you don't act out your dreams. Sometimes, if you wake up in the middle of REM sleep, when you're dreaming, your conscious and unconscious mind are 'on' at the same time and you can't move.

If you're not expecting it, the resulting helplessness can cause you to panic, making your unconscious mind react and start making your see scary stuff. It's sort of like a nightmare, but you're awake.

Ohh gotcha. Is that common for people? Because it sounds like something fairly simple and could happen a lot but I've never heard about it before.

It's pretty uncommon. And it thankfully doesn't last very long in most cases.

Sleep paralysis is caused by waking up suddenly and the paralysis is still there (its something the human body developed as a defense mechanism to stop humans moving during their sleep in case they were sleeping near high ledges or something) because the body still thinks the mind's alseep, and seeing as how you're still in this state it causes you to hallucinate because half of your bodies still asleep (like seeing a dream in real life, whatever happens is what your deep thoughts are.Which tends to be something horrifying due to the fact that first timers are panicking because they cant move) I hope to god I never have one because I never had one before. People claim to see black, skinny demons climbing over their legs towards their face. ******* creepy man.

Part of me wants it to happen, but the other part of me doesn't.
It sounds like a terrifying experience.

One time, an arm grew out of the wall and ripped the paint off like a mask. There was a skinless, bleeding, screaming face behind it.

Shadows move in threatening shapes, monsters and evil creatures sit on your chest, pinning you there (a subconscious manifestation of the paralysis), and there's just no telling what sort of horrible things will start torturing you. It only lasts for a few seconds, but it feels like forever.

A thing like the ************ in my picture showed up regularly.

you can enter it by lying still and not giving it to brain's checking whether you are ready to sleep(urges to scratch, move...). It should take about 10 minutes to fall into sleep paralysis, some take less, some more...

Then you can experience the dreaming while awake phenomenon.

He had sleep paralysis
It's a form of lucid dreaming where you believe your dream is really happening
