A parastrata, also known as a paralayer, is a layer in headspace where a system's paracosms are located. It is different from a scribstrata in that the residents of a parastrata are paras, parabonds, reveribonds, and/or introparas, not full headmates or paratives.[1]

If the part of headspace where a parastrata is located is perceived as existing inside a system's physical brain, it could be a type of intralayer; if it is percieved as existing outside of it, it may be a type of exolayer.

A parastrata may have gateways through which its members may leave to access other layer(s)/the rest of headspace and/or where full headmates may enter to access the paracosms; in this case, the system would be a type of dreamway.
