What can happen is that intermittently falling asleep while reading can produce a short `hypnagogic' dream (which is more of an hallucination), of a radically different text - sometimes with strange meanings. Thing is, you might be `certain' that the dreamed text was what you actually read - but it wasn't. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypnagogia Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
