>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. Why the fuck do people do this? If you want to talk about something just ask what game I've been playing while you were asleep or something. There's no need to make up shit.
Listening to people's dreams has the potential to be a pain in the ass 100% of the time, that's why this board might not last tbh. It's impossible to tell when people are making shit up especially on the internet.
I like listening to people dream and sharing mine even more. I could do this for hours, and I'm often the one starting conversation or breaking the silence to pop a "JUST REMEMBERED I DREAMED ABOUT [...]". It's just reveal so much about people, both the content of the dream and the way they react to them and consider them.
I don't understand how you could know if they made soykaf up, or even considering this in the first place. It's a fuarrrking dream. Why would people lie about something where *anything* can happen for no understandable reasons. Nothing to fear or rejoice at, or even to be proud of. I just don't get it.
>>2023 >a form of experience that is defined by the complete lackthereof this is your opinon. basing an argument on this is childish error. claiming something happened when you know it didn't is lying, whether the subject is dreams, art, or anything.
Develop a decent bullsh*t detector. If you can't, then enjoy spending the rest of your life wondering if every single person is lying to you or not. In that case, the best approach is to assume everyone is lying until proven otherwise. This kind of makes communicating with strangers on the internet a pointless pursuit though.
