Re: Do we actually think in words?

I found this to be really interesting -- In Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams, he talks about how our emotions and thought processes are replaced by visual and auditory images or hallucinations. He talks about and quotes other authors how our waking minds think in concepts while our dreaming mind...

Re: SnorlaxDreamer - Introduction

Apparently, it's exactly like you think its going to be. I agree. It's similar to people who are experimenting with psychedelics for the first time. If you spend all your time worrying about having a bad first trip, you're going to have a bad trip. Just try to let go of your fear, and if you do hav...

Re: The feeling of water within lucid dreams?

That IS really interesting. While I've never experienced a large body of water in a LD yet, it made me immediately think of a lucid dream I had in which it was raining outside. Thinking back on it, when I tried to sprint through the rain, it would be absolutely freezing, to the point where it seemed...

Re: Alarm Clocks...

To build on Peter's post, to wake up naturally at a certain time, you need to make a regular habit of waking up at that specific time. Habitually waking up at a certain hour trains your circadian (sir-KAY-dee-in) rhythm, which is essentially your body's alarm clock, to wake you up when you want to. ...

Shouldn't you always remember your LD?

It's clearly a general consensus that you must improve your dream recall to have lucid dreams, and that it is possible to have a lucid dream and not remember anything about it. Something that I've been wondering since I had another LD last week is this: if you have a truly lucid dream in which you h...

Re: How could I be so stupid!!

I think everybody's had this at some point, I know I've had many separate dreams in which I'm afraid to pee in my dream because I'm concerned about peeing my bed, but it doesn't click that I'm dreaming. I wake up with that " .. are you serious?" kind of disappointment.

Re: If people only knew what they are missing

I think the closest plausible explanation is the "many worlds interpretation" as it is called. The majoity of the world physicists now subscribe to this idea. It basically says that every outcome of every possible action exists in a separate universe and there are an inifinite number of t...

Re: WILD Problem (Shudder)

Do you feel a sensation of free falling or electric shock when you get these jerks? If so, the jerks are called hypnagogic myoclonic jerk, or "hypnic jerks." These hypnic jerks are common at the onset of sleep and most people experience them throughtout their lives. As to why it happens, t...

Re: Talking to people in lucid dreams?

This post reminded me alot of a program I watched on TV, "Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman." It was the episode titled "Is there a Sixth Sense?" There's alot of mind blowing little factoids in that show and it's worth watching, such as an ongoing experiment testing if the...

Re: How much time do you spend on Journaling?

Like jamjam, when I journal, I find briefly outlining my dream right after waking is most effective. By writing down only small important phrases or thoughts such as "driving home," "movie theater," or "I'm not scared" in chronological order, it helps me remember my dre...
