No one believes this, but I once stayed awake for 8 straight days, not a minute of sleep. I did this because I had read somewhere that after 2-3 days, one would start to hallucinate. Well, I never hallucinated, and to the best of my knowledge there has been no adverse effects on my mind or body.

Once I finally slept, I slept a normal 7-8 hours and didn't feel abnormally tired when I woke up.

That is called sleep paralysis. It is a function of your body to paralyze yourself so you do not wake yourself up while dreaming.

The mind is like a parachute it won't work unless it is open?

Yes because the mind does not work if the brain is not functional. While sleeping the mind still works but not as powerfully as when awake. The brain however constantly works to provide the body with necessary abilities, for example telling the heart to beat, and telling the body to move. But the mind will not work if it's not, "open." So technically the mind is always, "open" but we can control it to open more towards other things, when we are thinking and are awake..

What does it mean when you jolt awake to the feeling of being hit and you look around and no one is there?

The mind is a very complex tool. Its more advance and sufficient than the best computer. But it relies on the signals sent to it by the body. When we dream, our mind is doing several things at once. Its mostly electric signals being past through the brain cells, aka, processing information. Sometimes those electric signals can be so intense that our body reads it as reality and responds.
