sometimes, if you're on a dangerpus situation in your dream, you're in a dangerous situation outside as well. A common occurence is having your airflow restricted. It's not like any choices you make while dreaming will kill you.. right?
>Implying we're currently alive. I'd imagine not. I believe most dreams abruptly end right at the dreamer's death or at an insignificant duration of time prior to the death. Though, there are cases in which the dreamer continues to dream after their death and those tend to be rather interesting. I did hear this story- I know not it's validity, however- in which a man dreamt he was shot in the heart, and then awoke to having a hear attack. He survived, of course, as we'd know not this story were he to have died. Was his heart attack the trigger of the dream of his being shot, or was his mind believing he was shot cause placebo leading to his heart failing itself?
>>657 >but how do you know you died? when a person dies, only someone who isn't them knows that they're dead! (as opposed to unconscious) uh, maybe I woke up just before dying all those times. But I remember several times I was supposed to be dying.
>>1900 Wrong. I once dreamed that I killed myself using nitrogen. Unfortunately I found out, that the after life actually exists and the dream turned to a nightmare because I feared coming into hell because of my suicide. Fortunately I awoke before I could see whether I would get out in heaven or hell. I just was waiting in some reception hall being full of anger about my fauxpas.
>>657 I once died (shot in the back of the head) and switched perspectives. Another time I was in an elevator and this big brunt brought his hammer up on me and two other girls I was protecting but then he brought it down, smashed our heads, and I woke up. I wake up in fear a lot.
