Can someone answer this quickly for me?

Postby Sneedon » 28 Aug 2012 17:36

I had been doing some research, and I found out that you can have an object that you have with you at all times and you know everything about it so if when you see or use it in a dream you will know if its different and if it is you will know your dreaming and become lucid, so that brings me to my question of does a sand timer ever run out in a dream?

It will probably run out if you expect it to.

What happens in real life? It runs out. Unless your used to or expecting it to go on forever, it won't.

And fell into a fitful sleep
Escape to realms beyond the night
Dream can't you show me the light? "

This sounds like the "totems" used in Inception.

Unlike the film, I don't think you can predict how your chosen object will behave when you're dreaming. If you turn over a sand timer in a dream, the sand might just fall through the same way as it does in reality. Alternatively, it could behave completely differently. Dreams are unpredictable.

But I think that having a daily habit which gets you thinking about reality is a good idea. So if you want to carry a sand timer and it reminds you to keep doing reality checks throughout the day, go for it. :)
