The Sticky: /zzz/ 2.0This is new /zzz/, the dreams board. The intent is that this board will be used to share and discuss descriptions of dreams; discussion concerning dreaming techniques, sleeping patterns, and the nature of dreams and of consciousness is also welcome.
The Lucid RealityI see threads about nightmares and for me nightmares are nothing more then un-controlled psyche in a dream reality.
The images of reality I see are formed completely within my own head based on input from my 5 senses.
I wonder if I'm alone in this. Anytime I use a cellphone or a computer in a dream, it malfunctions. Or it's full of viruses or something. It's only purpose in the dream seems to be that it is a source of frustration. In a few different ones, I've been in a public place and dozens of popup porn ads kept appearing, which felt a lot like the generic "I'm in public in my underwear" dream. I am trying to remember a dream where this wasn't the case but I can't.
Prolonged DreamsToday I had a really fun dream, in which I was more or less forced to take part in some kind of social activity game, where I get tasks and deadlines on my smartphone from some entity, just like in Gatchaman Crowds or Higashi no Eden. Also I was on the run from the police for some unknown reason and got to enter some shady group in the slums of this city.
Lucid dreams with audio only.About five years ago, when I was under-aged b&, I started to take the bus home from school. The bus was very hot and sweaty most days, the temperature was normally about 32 degrees Celsius (89 for the Americanly impaired), there was little air conditioning, a bunch of retarded kids wriggling about like jelly beans and our uniform were made of some kind of tight fitting non porous synthetic material. As a defence mechanism I basically taught myself to fall asleep automatically under those conditions. Back then I played a lot of CSGO and after a while I started to hear gunfire and explosions whenever I closed my eyes on the bus, the interesting thing was that although I couldn't see anything, I was in control of my movement within the dream (I could hear my footsteps) and always had either a P90 or an AK-47. About a week ago I was sightseeing in Japan and during a taxi ride to the Silver Pavilion in Kyoto I experienced the same conditions. This time however I could hear multiple pop idol songs playing over one another sounding much like the busy streets of Akihabara had done only a few days ago. What about you guys? Had any audio only dreams?
I had an extremely odd dream the other night. It was an extremely long dream as well, and despite having about 5 and a half hours of sleep, I felt extremely relaxed and alert in the morning.
/r dream threadEveryone passing by must post a dream
I have these dreams where I can do things that I can't do irl and I often feel bad when waking. All I'll remember is one (usually simple) thing. Tonight I drempt that I was attempting to solve this cheapsoykaf chinese Rubik's cube I have. I thought to myself it'd be easier with another and sure enough I picked up this cube of the sort speedcubers use (one where you can do one rotation halfway and complete that rotation with another rotation perpendicular). The cube ended up having a side completely orange with still more orange squares. I had solved it. I can't actually solve a Rubik's cube at all.
Sometimes, not often enough to make me worried, I'm really really sleepy and I fall asleep for maybe 5 minutes or maybe less. I then dream something like falling down while walking on a sidewalk and reflexively try to cushion the fall with my arms. Then I wake up with mild spasms, because these reflexes are actually at least mildly executed in real life.
List some cool dreams you've had here.
Extremely stressful dreamsHas anyone had experienced them?
>be in my new apartment
Random ass dream>It was my old middle school
Most memorable/impressive dreams GeneralPost most memorable/impressive dream you have had so far!
Hey, i haven't been able to sleep very well.
Dreams Database / Dream journal programmMaybe this is a thread more suited for /lam/, but as I don't intend to extend that much on the programming side of it I'll post it here.
It seems like every dream I have these days features, at some point, a very sexually forward woman.
Dream SageDo your dreams ever "continue" where they left off last night? I seem to carry on having dreams where I am a nazi officer and I go on adventures with Hitler and other officers. I always wake up when the star of david is shown, it has become a motif in all my dreams lately. I am not sure what this means.
I'm a male on my early thirties. Since I far as I a remember I have dreams where I am woman, and these dreams use to be very relaxing, to the point that the conscious me wishes they would never end.
How come dreams are visualized like this?I never got why dreams are always shown to be like magical wonderlands straight out of a fantasy novel like pic related. For me at least, whenever I can remember my dreams, they're more just like daily life with more distortion. It's sorta like living out a late alpha/ early beta of a game. I never got the vivid fantasy, just a scrapbook of people and places from my life. Anyone else have this?
Dreams with emotionsDoes anyone ever have dreams with HUGE emotional impact? The sort that leaves you gutted and on the verge of tears?
Where Do You Write Your Dreams?I'm wondering where people write their dreams. I usually type it out half asleep in my phone and then transfer it onto paper later.
Everyone on /zzz/ has seen Waking Life, right? I was introduced to it in philosophy club, but keep coming back to it because it's just so damn unique.
I can't remeber my dreamsHey /zzz/. I have problems with my dreams, or should I say, lack there of. I can't remember any of my dreams. I go to sleep and then I wake up, with no in-between. On the rare occasion I remember one, its never a nightmare, but it is very vivid. I have never experienced sleep paralysis either. I think dreams are an important part of life and I want to at lest remember experiencing them. Has anyone had issues like I'm having?
In the past few weeks I've been having horrible nightmares, which have been progressing to night terrors. One in particular I walked in to my bathroom and looked in my mirror, in my reflection I saw myself hanging dead from the ceiling. I ended up screaming, when I woke myself up I was standing in my bathroom looking at the mirror (which has never happened to me before). I'm 19, is it normal for people my age to have night terrors or extreme nightmares? Does anyone else experience this?
Memories from other dreams within your dreamHow many of you recall memories of past dreams in your more recent ones? I do it pretty regularly. I never remember my real life memories in my dreams either, it's always my dream memories that come up. Even ones from a couple years ago manage to surface themselves when I'm snoozing.
This is the dream board and i have one!I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our internet.
ambient videosI often fall asleep to ambient music and I'm looking to build an "ambient videos" collection, that is non-story-based non-frantic abstract videos that I can play while I'm falling asleep.
Sleep deprivationI'm sure I'm not the only one who has had fuarrrked up sleep schedules for long periods at a time. The world is a strange place, even after being awake for only 24 hours. I have never stayed awake long enough to hallucinate (I think), but all my memories of times I've been awake upwards of 36 hours are very dreamlike. I'm sure there's a connection between sleep deprivation and actual dreaming sort of flowing over into reality.
are the best I've ever had...I had the most incredible dream ever, I was in some sort of white walled facilities hallways. And behind every door was a person who's faces I couldn't remember, and when I held their hands, all of my fears and past screw ups were gone. I was able to live a million beautiful lives at once. I cried hysterically in my dream.
Technology in DreamsThis feels as about a lainchan-focused topic as there could be.
Through the knowledge obtained by serial expirements lain and through what I read about Yume Nikki on uboachan, I have been able to very quickly begin the openings of my third eye. Things are going to be great for me from now on, as I have transcended the state of normality into total deviant savage. I see things people could never even imagine in their normal lives. I want to stay semi anonymous but I will leave my twitter, so that you can stay caught up with my thoughts in case I start spamming lainchan.
For last few days I have been having really violent dreams where I punch the living hell out of some bastard, bash them with a bat, machine gun their guts or just stab them up until their blood colors everything.
I had this dream, woke up from it not an hour ago...
Those difficult to explain dream thingsI want to have a thread where we discuss the things about dreams that are difficult to discuss, at least for me they are.
Recovering from sleep deprivation?This happens when I have been sleep deprived for several days in a row, and after I have had my first night of good sleep.
I don't really want to wake up. It's hard to explain, maybe you understand. The waking world has no meaning beyond what I can perceive, because that's all the waking world is. But the dream world gives access to what you've hidden from yourself, it gives you hints, insight, and calm. Even when I'm falling in my dreams I'm calm. Melatonin doesn't do anything for my dreams, I don't know if you find this. It doesn't enhance them. There is some other compound, something similar to adrenaline but acting on the subconscious primarily, maybe, and it overflows in dreams. I can't explain it, I just don't want to wake up.
My float finally appeared in my dreams last night, and although its entire shape/weight/luminescence was different, and although I recognized this while I was dreaming, I didn't think to take control of the dream. This is often a problem in my dreams, where I will consciously recognize that I am dreaming but I don't realize the full implications of that fact, so instead of entering a lucid dream, everything becomes semi-lucid. In my dreams I can remember previous dreams and settings, I can remember dreams that I've had that same night, and I can remember how to utilize certain abilities that I've gained in previous dreams. In this way, I often find myself in similar settings in the dreams, and solve problems in similar ways. I've had one lucid dream in all my life, so I know that what I've been experiencing is not lucid but somewhere in-between.
Rally DreamA little bit ago I had a dream, which was re-occurring for 2-3 months.
A little bit ago I had a dream, which was re-occurring for 2-3 months.
My entire life I've never been able to see my face during dreams or even be able to picture my face while I was awake, so my dreams have either been of a hooded figure who I assumed was me or the face was just a blur. I accepted this as normal and continued on with my life for 12 years until yesterday while napping on the couch I had a dream where I was standing on the edge of a cliff looking out at the ocean and I was looking at myself from behind, then the 'camera' started to go around my body until it reached my face where it focused on it and started to zoom in until all I could see was my face and whiteness around it.
dreamI have this series of 3 dreams in a row almost every night involving a giant black snake roaring in my face with enough power it starts to shake whatever building im in and it starts eating people around me, i manage to get out and think i wake up. next i "go back to sleep" and "wake up" to my mother being in my room, leaning over me extremely angry but the entire room looks like there is a black light on and her eyes are glowing green, then im in the desert walking over dunes endlessly. Usually at the end i actually realize im dreaming and i start suffering from sleep paralysis. At this point i wake up in the real world panicked and i can remember the dreams for hours afterwards. I cant tell if its real, but i do remember waking up between each of these dreams. Every night for 3 nights.
ITT: Times when you mistook reality for a dream.This just happened to me today.
NukesOk. here is an insane story of a dream that I had, could anybody help decode it?
I was at home and there was a bulk of mail, like I hadn't opened any mail for months. Snail mail that is. Among the letters was a larger one, thick, more of a package. I opened it and it was a book of Anne Frank. I was worried for a moment because when taking it out I had ripped the cover a tiny bit, but on further inspection the book was a reprint from '92.
Wet NightmaresI would be interested in hearing about wet nightmares, if you experienced one.
I can't sleep./zzz/ how do you fall asleep? This last week I've been having trouble going to bed, and it's been fucking me up something major. I keep forgetting little things, I can barely make it through my classes. I've tried napping, but every time I've gotten close to falling asleep, I just... don't. I can lie down for hours on end, exhausted out of my mind, and just not fall asleep. At all.
Changes in dream toneI'm beginning to notice patterns in my dreams that are heavily influenced by my waking life.
Videos that resemble dreamsI think one of the major characteristics of most surreal media and dreams in general is being thrust into an unfamiliar situation with no explanation or explanatory dialogue. I came across this video years ago and I think it nails that weird, fucked up feeling that you can sometimes remember in dreams. Share your surreal videos, I'd love to see them
Foretold eventsHave you ever had a dream that has foretold events that would happen? Not: "Next day my goat will eat that left flower", but instead where months pass after the dream until at some instant you suddenly realize you are currently enacting the EXACT events of a dream you can barely remember.
Powerful VisionsI am of the belief that we have dreams, more localised journeys through our own mind but sometimes we also leave our locality and travel to spirit realms.
exploding head syndrome dreamSo i was just talking with some buddies about a dream i had where i experienced EHS (google it) and they started getting extremely uncomfortable and even started making us cry which isnt exactly normal. The dream took place in something that looked like the shit opengl render i posted and then all sound dissapeared and i mean ALL sound. After that i started walking towards the building but it gave off this feeling that by being close to it my life was in danger. so i instead went to read the sign which was in a non english language i couldnt read i am certain that it was the name of the building though. right as the sign started making a sound like a taser going off x30 went off in my head and i saw lots of flshing images and white. i then crumpled to the ground and starteed crying and after about 2 min it stopped and i woke up a few seconds later. This dream happened about a year ago but i still remember it almost perfectly. So i was wondering if it makes other people uncomfortable as well i find visualizing the doors to the building makes a big difference. There was also a lot of tiny details i left out so if theres anything youre wondering just ask.
PyramidsSome vague dream about Apollo or Yahweh, probably the same God, flying round the pyramids or in a pyramid.
Native Americans againJust dremt Id arrived in this quaint North American town and went into this wooden decked shop selling leathers and knives. It was run by a native, I said it was a nice town, he said it could do with change. I asked him the name of the place as Id just got off the greyhound, he told me it was called Wan Ko. I then looked at a map, it was near Niagra falls. I saw a mother with her son, more descendents from the local tribe. The boy was mischievous he told me he knew a Jedi was coming to town and I was to receive a vision...of Hell, I would see a monster or something, I started to think he was messing with me...then I dont know.
>that one friend who always thinks up a bullshit dream of something dumb happening to him like him being chased or shitting his pants everytime he wakes up just to start a conversation.
Has anyone been really able to define the more nonsensical parts of dreams? I'm not talking about something random that occurs, or something unexpected, but moreso that weird feeling when two things don't match up yet make complete sense when in a dream. That kinda weird things just happens and no question is brought up, and would never make sense even on a basic level. Anyone else get that weird feel?
TaxiLet's play a game, /zzz/!
Let's post some of our own. Just open up word, set the timer for 10 minutes and then start typing. Don't plan ahead. Just write the first words that come to your mind and by the time you finish them the next ones. You can correct typos afterward. Then let's each analyze our own texts.
Divided KingdomStrange visions concerning the UK last night. Was in some war torn eatern european derilict city, vivid, the UK had territory there, everywhere else felt hostile to it. Had a strange bit where I was in some junkies den and they had stolen someones meth making equipment, pretty much a hell realm.
The mechanics of dreamingHow about we collect some rules which seem to hold true for all our dreams in this thread?
Weird state after waking upDoes anyone experience anything like this?
no imagination, but still dreaming onthere is a condition recently termed 'aphantasia' where you cannot visualize or see things using your imagination.
Vague dream notesSometimes, when I'm too tired to write down a dream I had I try to scribble down some quick keywords of the dream in hopes that I remember layer
Two nightmares from earlier todayI had two nightmares in a semi-coherent stream.
was gonna post this on art, however thought you guys would understand what im saying more.
Dreams inspired by TV and movies anyone? Novels or other fiction? I often have dreams of the environment from a series after I've been on a watching marathon. Not the characters usually, just places that look like the setting of the show.
Weird Sex DreamsVanilla sex dreams are cool too, but last night I had the weirdest dream.
in the dream my character was a young girl in a futuristic setting, mother earth had been long forgotten destroyed or faded into obscurity, i cant remember which.
I just finished watching this documentary on dreams and thought you guys might find it interesting!
No sleeping = No dreaming.So, I have this problem, I can't sleep a lot, at night I can be awake in bed at 4 or 5am, then I sleep untill 11am but I can't dream at all, or at least I don't remember anything.
Some asshole broke into my house and stole all of my door knobs last night. He left a cryptic letter on my front door which I had to urinate on to reveal a map of where he buried them in my front yard. Have you ever done anything shitty to your subconscious for it to treat you this way?
Does anyone here's concept of self sometimes get completely reworked in dreams? I cant tell you the number of times I've woken up from a dream, and sitting in bed in that halfway state, I am no longer ME but I am a collection of other people who were in my dream.
I've been reading about lucid dreaming for a really long time and I've had a couple of low level LDs, but recently I've been having trouble getting Fe willpower to keep trying. I don't have a lot of free time, so I end up making up for that by staying up at night browsing imageboards. Advice would really be appreciated.
Lucid dream-inducing electronic headbandAnyone know if this is legit?
When you all dream, you are running around in a bubble world, a sort of prison which keeps you from navigating the open world system. All the bubble worlds are connected to a hub, which is essentially the open world system where all the dream people interact with one another, outside of your perception. You are not ready for the Hub. There is a lot of work that needs to be done before the Hub is able to be accessed. When will you join us?
SynesthesiaLet's talk about synesthesia, lains. I found out about it only yesterday while binge browsing Wikipedia, and discovered that something I've experienced all my life is not something everyone shares: I have pictured the months, weeks, and hours in a certain path/pattern for as long as I can remember, and always assumed this was normal.
share your dreamsGeneral dream thread, all dreams welcome.
Had a dream about a girl I talk too, she had a similar one about me. Thoughs?Really strange thing happened to me today. Out of the blue, this girl I talk to told me she had a dream about me where we met in a store.
Tell me about your most recent/recurring nightmares.Tell me about your most recent/recurring nightmares.
Once I remember being in a dream. It was actually a nightmare, but for some reason I was 100% sure it was just a nightmare but I wanted out so I started swinging wildly and slamming myself on the ground and punching myself in the face (in the nightmare not in real life). I eventually woke.
Hey sleepy Lains, ever had the experience of identifying a person in a dream as a particular person from reality, despite the dream person having a totally different appearance from the real person? Or even having the appearance of another person from reality?
I had a dream last night that Hillary Clinton had become POTUS. All of the tech companies held an exposition for her where they explained how they would thwart the constitutional rights of Americans, if Hillary approved. At the end, Tim Cook gives his one more thing speech and announces a portable ICBM. He presses a button and as the missile launches, an overhead graph shows maximum kill targets. Hillary stands and begins clapping as the entire auditorium erupts in thunderous applause that we've just entered WW3. I spent the rest of my dream trying to get the fuck out of the US as Chinese nuclear warheads detonate destroying American cities in retaliation for the US wiping out North Korea. I did not sleep well.
I hardly ever dream. If I do it's usually once every year.
I made a dream journal a while back, but ever since i specifically set out to try lucid dreaming all of my dreams have stopped, i have only remembered about 3 in the span of 3 months.
Lains, what's the most profound dream you've ever had, or one of the most profound dreams you've had.
SPACEWho has space dreams? I have them all the time. Last night I dreamed I was some sort of augmented superspy or soldier. I was on a space station that was about to get smashed and everyone was abandoning the place. The commander wouldn't let me into a pod because he had no record of me being there. I was undercover/top secret I guess. Then he said I was probably just a junky and I showed him my arms, no track marks, but there was eczema spots which he took as proof of drugs(!). I don't know if I escaped.
dream enjoymentDoes anyone else find they enjoy their dreams so much that they miss appointments to sleep in and continue them, or that they feel overwhelmingly sad upon waking? I've had this issue since I was a kid, and it's really bad on days I don't "have" to do anything, like weekends and such, since I'll sleep for 14-16 hours until I literally can't sleep anymore. Smoking weed/benzos etc. will make my dreams less vivid, but I'm not sure I want my solution process to rely on diminishing the overall impact of my dreams; I'd far rather find a balance that allows me to transition into my day to day life without feeling like I'm losing something more important than my waking experiences. Thoughts?
First of all, the frequency at which I've been having dreams seems to be increasing. If I take a 3 hour nap, I'll have typically one an hour, and wake up for a short time in between. I really should be keeping track of what they are, but it's only been becoming apparently weird enough to do so now. It was great for a while, because dreaming so often, and so easily, makes it feel like you're getting much more sleep than you really are. Time kind of slows down. An hour feels like 3-4 hours easily. It's concerning at this point though. I've been sleeping way more than usual, having started a new job on midnight shift, and I know it sounds crazy and all,but it seems like my dreams may be changing my perception of reality. Things that I would have sworn to you on cutting off one of my fingers are different. Little things so far mind you, but the kicker was tonight. I knew, for the past week, that I was off tomorrow night, not tonight. I was completely dressed, ready to go to work, and then i glanced at my schedule as I picked up my wallet and keys. It says I'm off tonight. I have an almost photographic memory of what that schedule looked like. Things before this have been inconsequential. Like someone telling me a time to be at an event, or that the event even existed, and me having no recollection of it. You could easily say this is normal, but not for me. I never forget things. I've worked nights before, and I've worked much more stressful jobs with longer hours, so i doubt that's the problem. I'm going to start recording my dreams as I have them. There has to be something in them that's messing with me. Has anyone had any similar issue before with dreaming?
Native American VisionsI need to write this down. Perhaps you can understand.
Dreaming too much?For most of my life I've had very few dreams which I remember when I wake up, as if I haven't had them at all. But for the past month or so I've started to have extremely vivid dreams more and more regularly. At first it was amazing, because in a night I'd have a spectacular and surreal dream which would feel as real as life. But this week there were multiple days where I slept 12+ hours because I had two or three dreams like this in a night, and I think it makes my sleep restless. Has anything like this happened to anyone else?
Dreams of AmyI tend to have visions of people places and events that I have no waking experience of.
Dream JournalSince this board is slow I've decided I'm going to post all the dreams I have in this thread. When it dies (in a million years) I guess I'll make a new one.
Learning to Enjoy dreamsI love the idea of dreams, and I love going to sleep at the end of a long day, but the dreams I can remember are always terrible.
I've been noticing a recurring theme in my dreams recently and wanted to see if anyone else gets this.
TCMP RecordingThe other day, I gave yukko a bit of a surprise by texting a volume worth of legible crap about facebook while asleep. Unfortunately, I wasn't actually aware when I was doing it (it was within the context of the dream I was having) When I woke up we tried to record to it in the future by enabling the tap sprite in android and running a screen recorder while I slept, and as luck would have it, I discovered that I instead sat at my computer trying to remote into 000.224.242.118 for about 8 hours, where my roomate found me and shook me awake.
Dream simulatorsThey're videos meant to train awareness of dream signs.
This constitutes more to daydreaming than anything, but does anyone else have "premonitions". I have to say, I don't believe in mystical soykaf, but I believe in patterns, and I believe that may be what it is. I also know everyone has dejavu, but I'm not sure how it works. For example, three years ago I had a dream about a big guy I know punching me in the face, then kicking my face in. It felt...weird. I could see the guy's face and everything. I didn't remember the dream until yesterday, when I saw him coming at me, I was able to dodge his first hit, but I was still beaten up, though not half as badly. Not every dream, or daydream (which is was happens mostly) is like this, and the ones I do have, I don't remember until before the thing happens, and not everything that happens is "amazing", a lot of the times it's me in a new job, or at home playing a video game that I haven't even heard of down the road (that's probably because I don't do much. When I do remember the dream, I zone out for a second...so anyone else like this? If so, or even if you know what it is, explain please.
Back then I've tried often to lucid dream but could never really do it. But I found that instead, I was able to continue to dream over and over again after waking up from the one before. This happens generally when I go to sleep after staying up late, eyes strained and tired. As a NEET, I didn't have anything to do the next day so when I woke up, still groggy, I could just close my eyes and go into these dreams that happen in short bursts each time. Sometimes I can continue the dream I had before, but usually I can't ever 'finish' the scenarios in those dreams. There's like a wall that just can't be passed. Anyone else like this? And do you know what it is?
In my dream last night I met someone on Lainchan who lived in the sewers of Philadelphia for three years. Went by the name DBB... seemed really cool and we hung out after meeting at a show. I started to help him get on his feet by teaching them that not everything is expensive as fuarrrk if you can find the right house crammed with punks/weirdos.
chantix, and/or nightmaresinitial question: has anyone else here used chantix (Varenicline - prescription to help quit smoking) and experienced the effect it has on their dreams?
Seeing future in my dreams?hey, /zzz/
Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of the DNA molecule, has some theories on dreams, specifically REM sleep, as an "unlearning" mechanism.
So, I had a weird dream a few days back.
daydreamswe've been discussing dreams mostly, but what about daydreams? The ones you have while travelling on a bus or in a car, during class, waiting somewhere, etc. Ones that can get interrupted by people talking to you, or something happening where you open your eyes or respond and then close your eyes again and try to continue where you left, sometimes successfully. maybe you even know you are daydreaming, but want to make that scene happen anyway.
Post ITT every time you remember your dreamPost in this thread every time you remember your dream.
A Dream LogIn it's own thread since mine tend to get pretty active one I get one started.
TulpaWhile this subject is is unrelated to sleep and dreams as far I know, I think it fit the board nonetheless, since it's mainly about self-hypnosis and mental activity. So lainons, what are your thoughts about the world of tulpa and tulpamancy? Do you practice, or is that just a bs neet/hippie fade?
I keep having violent dreams in which I bash the living fuarrrk out of someone and they punch me quite a lot of times.
your MBTI classification and what you think of the MBTIhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myers-Briggs_Type_Indicator
I've started keeping a dream journal and my memory of my dreams has shot up exponentially. I remember… a LOT. I can see them becoming more vivid now as well.
Yume NikkiHere's my log from the past days, I would like to ask if this progression is ok for getting into lucid dreaming:
Has anyone experimented with listening to binaural beats?
Sleep ParalysisAnyone ever experience this? Do you find it to be annoying/negative or interesting?
Does anyone else here use an eyemask? My gf got me one of these last week, and my sleep has been absolutely incredible, even when I get a limited amount. It's like as long as it's over my eyes my sleep is going to automatically be deep.
Lack of SleepLainons, what's the longest you've deprived yourself of sleep and how did you feel during this? And when you returned to sleeping, how were your dreams effected (if at all)? Longest I went was skipping a night of sleep and staying up until 9 AM the next day. I actually felt far more awake and alive than did I when I slept as to how I typically do. I'd a lack of dreams thereafter I recall, however I'd not been recalling my dreams prior to that as well, so may be unrelated to the sleep deprivation.
Memory poorly usedThere is only so much information that we as humans can individually remember. This is fine, as the this limit is shockingly high and the human brain is amazing as it is. What my problem is is how much of this is rather wasted. Even if it adds to the very essence of my personality and who I am, there seems to be a lot of junk up there. It doesn't seem important to me to remember the latest Mcsoykaf commercial nor the phone number for a local lawyer, but this information persists in my memory jingles will be the death of us all. While there is also a lot of information from school that is more often than not useful to remember or just good to be knowlegdable about, there is still a good amount of other (what I subjectively term) crap. How do other lainanons feel about this?
My only nightmares deal with spidersNothing that I can dream of can possibly scare me except the giant crawling spiders I dream about sometimes, whats even worst is when I wake up and cannot move but still feel them crawling around my body under the sheets. Sleep paralysis is the worst feeling you'll ever feel.
PDFs from /zzz/Post any PDFs you mights have from /zzz/ here. I have a large one with many many PDFs
Has anyone used their lucid dreaming for something productive? As in not sex?
Controlling People in Lucid DreamsHey /zzz/ I lucid dream a fair amount without forcing myself to or training to - it just kinda happens naturally to me every now and again.
Other Lucid Dream techniquesHey, I'd just like to add a few things to the sticky that helped me to dream, get lucid and stay lucid when I feel I am waking up. So here's my practical guide to LD!
Anyone else find a dream hilarious while asleep, and then wake up laughing? This happened to me multiple times this week, but it's never happened before.
Does anyone else have extremely crazy dreams all the time? Mine are just so profound with tons of things going on. Very very weird too. I have never heard a description of another person's dream that comes close to my normal ones.
Anyone ever have experience being tickled in their dreams? it is never something I would compare to being tickled in real life. Its almost like being shot with a stun gun, the sensation is magnified to the point of not even being able to move when feeling it. I absolutely hate it and was plagued with dreams involving it as a child. Now whenever my dreams decide to act up I go almost lucid and wake myself up before anything else can be done.
