Sherlock Holmes the Lucid Dreamer?

Postby JonSnowLD » 31 Dec 2013 14:38

Is it just me or would Sherlock Holmes be amazing at seeing dream signs and becoming lucid? he's so perceptive and stuff I just thought that if he was a real person he'd instantaneously realise he was in a dream whenever he entered one! ;)

Good point! With how aware he is of everything, he'd probably be a natural!

MONK is a lucid dreamer. He often visits his dead wife in bed during false awakenings.
Freddy Kruger is a lucid dreamer too! :twisted: But you share HIS dream instead!
If we all lucid dreamed this world would be a better place.

I've said this before and I'll say it again: If you want to increase your chances of becoming lucid in your dreams be a dream detective.

Before the term "lucid dream" had even been coined, there was a man who was familiarising himself with his dreams so meticulously that he found himself becoming consciously aware of dreaming while it was happening. He was real and renowned in history. Some of his oneironautic techniques are employed by sleep scientists and lucid dream researchers today. Think 19th century. Can you guess his name?

"Marquis d'Hervey de Saint-Denys?"... Whose book, "Dreams and How to Guide Them was published in 1867?"
It's a wild guess! (Just kidding. The internet makes us all omniscient with a few key words!)

I'll cite the source as to not infringe on copyright and for others to read if they choose:

I'll read it later, and check him out, but I bet I was right!
