Speaking of nightmares, I had a lucid dream-turned-nightmare today :(.

I can remember a couple of times of having such experiences. In my case, they are quite unusual. What happened? :o

I had a lucid dream today (semi-lucid, obviously) where I was at home. Most of the house was dark and few rooms had lights on. As I stand near a sink to check my irregularly shaped hands and count my fingers, I accidentally look at the mirror above the sink and see my reflection.

I was HORRIFIED that my look at myself didn't last more than a second. All I could make of it are my angry, zombie-like eyes, turned inwards with the eyes looking completely white with the pupils barely visible at the top of the eyeballs. From a lucid dream to a lucid nightmare, a scary atmosphere prevailed thereafter.

Looking at your profile photo now, I guess it was inspired by it.

I can imagine how dreadful it must have been. I once saw my reflection as a melting demonic face---but this was when I was awake on magic mushrooms. :D

I drew my avatar. I call it 'The Trickster'. In his Jungian way, the dream character represents my repressed darkness and concealed wisdom. I'm yet to meet him ... :mrgreen:

Pray tell, what is your concealed wisdom?

Its reservoir is mostly concealed even to myself. Once in a while enlightening 'nuggets' escape into the light of consciousness. They're called 'eureka moments'. You don't pick 'em because everything, including ourselves, is the product of cause-and-effect. :mrgreen:

Eureka!
It appears that the most useful eureka moments are the one's learned in the mist of cause and effect. :evil:
However, I have those moments to which you refer and have found them to be fleeting. :cry:
None-the-less, they it can be referred to as wisdom. :idea:
