Insomnia Cure

Let your thoughts drop into your pillow. As new ones arise, let them spill into your pillow. Give the entire process over to your pillow. Let the pillow become intelligent, as you yourself go dull.

Notice that as you do this, the pillow becomes more comfortable, and your head falls more heavily into it. Let your head fall through it.

Of course, this stuff is always zero-sum. While it's neat to be able to go to sleep in a fingersnap (which will happen if you practice the above), the downside is that you can go to sleep in a fingersnap (I'm about to fall out of my chair just writing this). This problem also appeared, come to think of it, the last time I figured out a sleeping trick.
