"The Chinese author Lin Yutang wrote in 1937 that â€˜our senses are the keenest in that momentâ€™ when we are lying down, and addedÂ that â€˜all good music should be listened to in the lying conditionâ€™. Our mental makeup and even the structure of our perception can change with a shift of posture. Responses that seemed perfectly natural a few minutes earlier, when we were standing upright or sitting, become inexplicable. Questions that were so important appear in a different light when we view them horizontally. Voices and even the ringing of a telephone might no longer reach us with the same urgency as when we were standing."
