Well dreams are projections of our walking life, I for example dream of the subway very often, as I've used to spend a significant portion of my day in there. I recently dreamed I was finding my way in an unknown city, which happens somewhat often in my life. Then when I spend most of my time programming I dream I'm doing just that. And so on. So go out more often and meet more people and try not to smoke weed, you won't remember most of your dreams that way, I guess the same thing goes for booze
Recently my dreams become weirder every night, probably because I have poor sleep.
Last night I dreamed about a Chinese girl named Xiao Xiang, who stomped on the tongue of a man, so he died due to loss of blood. She later shot some black spray in her face and became blind. Afterwards she got bullied and I felt pity for her.
Although dreaming about RMS snapping and becoming a ruthless dictator, deporting every non-obedient programmer and enemy to the GNU+State to labor camps to work on truly Free Software isn't that great either I imagine.
Back to topic; I don't know either what the fuck exactly makes a good dream. I do recall however listening to podcasts or audiobooks while sleeping steers the general narrative of what I am dreaming about.
>>2460 I usually can't tell whether or not my dreams are real or not until I go somewhere that I used to live in and I go "Wait a second, don't I live in [x] now?" Or like I recognize something from a video game I haven't played in years. Or I start flying towards the end or some crap. Third way to distinguish if it's a dream or not is if there's a mall in it because I don't go to the mall but literally 90% of my dreams take place in or near a mall.
>>2483 >>2484 Xiao is a common nickname too. It can, depending on the character, literally mean "little“ which acts as a diminutive. So Li Er is often Xiao Er to her friends or Wu Ming could be Xiao Ming.
>>636 >try not to smoke weed, you won't remember most of your dreams that way Most people overlook this fact. Weed helps you actually fall asleep but it heavily disrupts sleep architecture and actual REM sleep.
There seems to be different ways the mind works with thoughts, some will be great visualizers who can imagine complex scenes, some will have flighty thought patterns that make for more chaotic dreams, and then some just got blessed with the soykafs. You may be able to cultivate intensity by practicing visualization based meditation (picture a dice and roll it around, spin it, etc. until you have something cohesive; practice rendering other objects) and imagination-based thought games (you're in a room with a door, go through the door, what do you see? Explore the compound.)
