Hello, I would appreciate if someone would ansower to these two:

1. What would happen if you comitted suicide while lucid dreaming? Will you wake up or go somewhere deeper?
2. What would happen if you felt asleep within a sleep? Would you wake up or start dreaming on a higher level of counciousnes?

I think it's hard to say. People dream in different ways. What do you think would happen if it were you? :)

1. I died once in a non lucid dream and the dream just went on without me. I haven't tried anything like it in a lucid dream but I believe that it might be the same. I wouldnt know though so don't take my word.
2. Either a false awakening or an awakening, I assume.

I have actually been trying to commit suicide in lucid dreams for a while now, just to see what would happen as I dont think you will wake up. I have died in non lucid dreams and they went on, I left my body and it felt really strange.

As for dreams within a dream, I have entered many lucid dreams by dreaming in a normal dream, the false awakening is me waking up in the first, non lucid dream.

It's kinda hard to truly die in a lucid dream since you know you aren't actually dead. When I jump off a ledge and feel myself falling, the adrenaline wakes me up most of the time before I hit the ground. And if I do remain lucid and smack into the ground, I just get up and dust myself off.

But I go to sleep in lucid dreams all the time. Sometimes I just can't help it. I will be walking around and feel just so incredibly tired. Then I will simply collapse to the ground and most of the time when this happens I sink into the ground and awaken somewhere else. Not any deeper, but just somewhere else. I have a theory about why I get really tired in lucid dreams sometimes and it's because my brain is telling me it's not time to be awake right now and it is time to sleep.
