Title: Why do I suddenly twitch when drifting off to sleep?

Hi guys,

This question tends to come up from time to time and I figured I'd post a link to a couple articles explaining this phenomenon:

I'll unlock this one so some more discussion can happen.  :)

For those of us who are experienced in projection, the associated phenomenon isn't strange at all.

Exploding Head Syndrome?
Just hypnogogic sounds...

Hypnic Jerk?
I refer this to the sense of accidentally expanding consciousness away from the physical and not being prepared for it.
