Who else can read in dreams?

Postby 86Pizzas » 04 Mar 2017 18:26

I have been an avid reader since childhood and I can read very well in dreams. The words are stable and don't change. I have read essays, chapters of books, and even other languages in dreams. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if anyone knows the science behind this. Post your comments below!

Hi, I've tried to read in dreams but can't effectively. Sometimes the words are nonsensical, but for me personally, looking at words, then looking away, looking back and seeing that they've tried is a dependable lucidity trigger for me! Fascinating that words remain stable in your dreams and you can read well.

I can read in my lucid dreams extremely well. I know it sounds crazy, but I've read the board in some of my WILDs I fell asleep in class and I am listening to the lecture. I've also read random notes left on the counter (one once said, "You make me so happy!!" and had a smile face on it), and on some occasions, I've even read open books and newspapers (while on break at my job before, sometimes I'd induce a WILD, fly over to the table, and read an article in the newspaper). Low probability doesn't mean impossibility necessarily in lucid dreams

In the past, words would change around if i reread or make up nonsensical sentences. Now, the words are stable and the sentences make sense, but wouldn't be something I would write. They seem to have a hidden meaning.

I did read my mind, and it looks somewhat similar to this bugs bunny cartoon:

I can always read signs and book covers and what not. But I've never tried to read a book or anything like that. That being said what I have read has always made sense.
