erichsa, i think the important difference here is the perspective on 'killing'.
Guitar mentioned 'video game style' which -to me- is no real killing but rather an expression of energy (anger for example).
i do understand adult people's view on fighting-video games, but in my opinion they can't but relate to real life - while young people can distinguish between video games and actual violence (as long as they are healthy of course)

i, for example, enjoy all kinds of video games - from super mario to call of duty. and in general, i'm a very calm, non-violent person. so, although i like killing digital enemies, i can't stand real violence.

as for dreaming: i only dreamt of fighting once, and it was like a video game - and big fun!

"tea" I had a long post why I don't like killing even in games, but it disappeared. I am 60 plus years ahead of most of our members, and to make it short" What a time it has been". It all appears in my dreams, and one of the reasons why I pursue lucid dreaming's is that I have such a lot of fun in my dreams. :)

Yeah it pretty much is. The reason I say video game style is because the way I want to kill DC's isn't as detailed as people would think. So say I charge at a DC with a sword. When I hit it, I don't really want blood and gore(though I do enjoy some gruesome games), but instead I just hit it and it grunts and flinches in pain, collapses or just disappear, like final fantasy or kingdom hearts. But as fun as that sounds, I am not a violent person in reality either.

My apologies we are having a generation gap. Playing video games seems a good way to discharge anger and frustration. Enjoy your games. :)

That's what this whole point was.
Does our age and maturity effect why we pursue lucid dreams and what we choose to do in them?

In my post with the Disney Land analogy I mentioned that I use to 'kick Mickey Mouse in the shins'. I use to mess around with dream characters and treat it like a video game too. Then I started to question them and see how they respond, and I got deeper with it all instead of treating it like fun and games.

But I still like to kick Mickey in the shin sometimes! ;)

Another reason to pursue lucid dreams: To be a child again filled with curiousness and wonder.
If we all lucid dreamed this world would be a better place.

Why I pursue lucid dreams?

I keep asking this girl to go out with me. her response is always, "In your dreams."

And I'm like, "HELL YEAH!"

lol No really, I do it for so many reasons that cannot be captured in words, so I'll just say that everyone has a hobby.

And all my life I've wanted to be a super hero and save someone.

Maybe spiderman or deadpool.... or that panther thing I came up with....

Hi Rebecca :D

Weirdly I actually first heard of LD's early july this year but didn't really get into it until around the end of august which unfortunately was when my school started back up...

I love to do this because I want to learn more about myself and I just want a different reality, I want to really know who I really am and what I'm capable of thinking and/or achieving. I just hate getting up and having to face a full day of reality before sinking away to my dreams again. I'm 16 btw:D I've had around 5-6 LD's since I really started focusing on it, which was just over a month ago :D
