I've been wondering, since we have dreams they seem to last... oh say 10 minutes to us, but in reality they actually last less than split second.
Is Lucid dreaming just the same? Does it last a split second in reality, or does LD go real time?
I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense... that's the only way I could put it.
I don't know about that. I'm sure they last longer than that.LCDAnthony wrote:I've been wondering, since we have dreams they seem to last... oh say 10 minutes to us, but in reality they actually last less than split second.
But with a lucid dream, I feel that it lasts as long as it felt like it lasted. Since my conscious self is awake, I remember it the same way I remember doing something in reality. And we have a pretty good sense of time with our conscious minds. If you were to sit in a room with no clock for a while and then leave and guess how long you were in there for, you can be quite accurate. 5 minutes feels different than 10, 15 or 30. (Once it starts being over an hour or so it can get hard.) But since I have a good sense of time when awake, I feel the timing in a lucid dream is the same.
But when non-lucid it can be hard to tell with any degree of accuracy, but I'm sure dreams that feel like 10 minutes lasted longer than a split second. If that were the case... then in a 3 hour REM dream state, every second being 10 minutes of dreams... (calculating.... carry the one..... IT'S A LONG TIME! TOO LONG FOR THAT TO BE TRUE.)
If a dream felt like it was 10 minutes long, but in the waking world, they last a second or so.
But if a dream is 10 minutes long, is it 10 minutes long in the waking world?
