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?

Is this really lucid? When I am particularly tired but sitting and actively doing something (usually at my computer or laying in bed with my phone), I'll catch myself drifting off because I'll hear... chatter? or something else like voices. But I know it's the start of a dream. If I close my eyes right after that I'll have a very vivid dream, sometimes that I'm in control of.

Most I can't control though, I can only watch.

I'm in complete control though, which is what I thought the definition of lucid was but, I am rather limited by the fact that I can't see or touch anything.

interesting story. i've fallen asleep when it was very hot in the past but never experienced anything like that

it's really interesting that CS is so demanding people tell all kinds of stories how their brains adapted to it so much that it impacts their real life perception

i for example experienced my eyes spotting terrorists in real life where in fact was only a piece of plastic or a bush or something

I don't think that's because it's demanding, but because it explains how some systems work. And CS is high tech /real life for a CS student.

>experienced my eyes spotting terrorists in real life where in fact was only a piece of plastic or a bush or something

This for example, I explain it to my self in terms of neural networks.

I think you're getting computer science mixed up with Counter Strike.

I sometimes dream of melodies, but I never remember them or write them down.
The other day I dreamed of a high school band that played a synthpop cover of Iron Maiden's Heaven Can Wait.

Oh soykaf yes.
Sorry, I didn't do it on purpose.

I used to see crosshairs when I closed my eyes back in my COD days. So glad I got away from that soykaf.

before I fall asleep, I have kind of an internal monologue like I'm talking to myself, and I know I'm not asleep until I start to see things unusual feel like they've been buried.

I hear someone calling my name just before I fall asleep

i often dream audio-only dreams during daytime. specially when dozing off in class or in transport.
never at night, idk.

I had one where it seemed like I was listening to Go West by Pet shop Boys but it turned out to be a dream. Strange thing was that I only listened to that song a few times yet it was a perfect recreation of it in my dream.

sounds like an extremely vivid daydream to me, covering for the "lucid" part

that's the tetris effect, it's really nothing special

well, it will be as long as you think that it was. since people don't remember dreams well, you can't exactly listen to the song later to compare the two
suppose there's three processes involved in people realising their environment (I'm not actually sure if this is how it works, but it makes sense to me)
1. sensation- the vibrations hit your ears and they shake
2. realisation- your brain does some magic soykaf
3. memory- you commit the sensation to RAM/storage. apparently, we all live a few moments in the past, with sensory delay and all
now if you weren't hearing the song at all, or anything that sounded like it as you were sleeping, we skip step one entirely
most dreams are just made of step 3[citation needed], and since you aren't experiencing step 2 right now, you shouldn't be able to tell for sure whether you were hearing a practically perfect version of that song or not
