Re: Meditation Impossible

OK, "meditation" officially pisses me off. Period. If my face is relaxed, then my eyes are open. Tension is required to keep them closed. Mutually exclusive requirements here. With eyes closed and face relaxed, trying to relax my eyelids immediately causes them to start twitching madly, fl...

Re: Hello from Psychosanity

Well, it seems like my dream recall is deteriorating again. Would you guys say this is typical? To take a few steps back from time to time on my journey forward?

Re: Sense of TIMING in a lucid dream

Well, LaBerge was writing as a scientist comparing 'dream time' to the corresponding elapsed time in 'normal reality', hence that context.
