Sorry, my sleep paralysis episodes concerned large, shadowy
entities and a strong urge to accomplish a complex
physical/mathematical task in order to "keep the universe
correct" (hard to explain exactly, but it makes perfect sense
when you're in a hynogogic state).

Anyway, the thing I'd like to add to the conversation is I
figured out how to trigger it! So anybody out there who has
never experienced this sort of thing can try it out -- see what
it's like. I found this out by accident when I was having kidney
stone pain. What it essentially involves is taking relatively
stong doses of ibuprofen. Two Advil Liqui-gels during the day,
then four just before you go to bed. (Don't do this if you have
an aspirin alergy of course!) It may take a few days for the
stuff to build up, but if you're like me, you'll soon be "waking
up" in the middle of the night seeing all kinds of crazy shiznit
and trying to keep the universe balanced by accurately adjusting
your pillow. It worked for me. I've since passed the stone, so I
don't take so much Advil anymore. Headaches, that's all.

I don't know what the specific mechanism might be. And it may
not work for you. On the other hand, you might have some kind of
reaction to aspirin or ibuprofen that stimulates this response.
Try it if you like. Let us know what happens. I can't imagine it
would cause anything like kidney damage unless you did it for a
long time. The makers of Advil say it doesn't have any
psychotropic effects. (heh heh) I, of course, take no
responsibility for anything.
