After orally pleasing Athena, she ordered me finish the laundry and then to sleep. That was the second night in a row Athena hypnotized me into natural sleep.
Again, my body dutifully went to sleep. Even though I retained my consciousness for a few seconds, my heart rate and breathing dropped to deep sleep mode immediately. Not gradually or after a few seconds; it was immediate. Just to satisfy my own curiosity, I counted my breathing rate dropped down to 3-5 seconds per inhale/exhale, about 2-3 seconds pause between inhale/exhale. About 7-12 seconds for a complete breathing cycle. I lost my consciousness when my count was in the 40 seconds range. I couldn’t really remember clearly.
Without a timer or watch, I didn’t think I would be able to count my heart rate. I’d have to ask Athena to measure it for me.
I never expected my heart rate or breathing to be affected by Athena. It really felt like I was forced going into sleep. I was astounded. It was a bit scary, but I couldn’t really think of any ill effects. It felt like I was being controlled, but only because I allowed it.
