DEFINITIONs:

1.  A dreamy state that occurs on arousing from sleep but before being completely awake. May be accompanied by visual, auditory, or kinesthetic hallucinations. Its opposite is the hypnagogic state, which can have the same hallucinations, but which occurs between wakefulness and sleep.

AUTHOR:  Donald Michael Kraig

2.  A state between sleep and being awake. It is also called the "Borderland Consciousness."

It's counterpart, between being awake & falling asleep, is called the hypnagogic state.
