Before the sun

The strange languor in the center of her consciousness, those vaporous ideas which kept appearing as though independently of her will, were mere tentative fragments of her own presence, looming against the nothingness of a sleep not yet cold—a sleep still powerful enough to return and take her in its arms.* 

During sleep the brain is active, learning and remembering, interpreting and organizing random signals -dreams- and consolidating that of greatest emotional resonance, most salient and worthy of remembering. 
It is surprising how existence can unfold within the mind as an abundant well of mystery. With its own vocabulary 'emanates the shadowy depths beneath.'*

Before the sun is a proposal that frames a very particular state of mind -'the realm of the invisible.'* - to unveil emotional memories.
*Paul Bowles - The Sheltering Sky
