Being deaf in the dream

Postby Highlander » 09 Nov 2013 19:21

I don't know if this happens to you, but sometimes i cannot hear anything in my dreams. It happened in 2 of my latest lucid dreams. I can do anything i normally do in a lucid dream: fly, see, touch... but i cannot hear. Tottaly deaf, total silence. Those dreams were a product of successfull WILD attempts. Why is this happening? I have my own theory:

When we are inside a dream, after some hours of sleep, all of our senses are transported into the dream. Although we are lying in bed, seeing nothing, hearing nothing, those senses are awake in the dream, so we can move, hear, talk, see. We have our "dream senses" activated. That's the reason why we sometimes are dreaming but at the same time we are hearing sounds from the waking world, although somewhat distorted. But the hearing must be the last one to be completely inside the dream.
When we enter a dream directly from a WILD attempt, our senses become to enter into the dream gradually. Because we are always aware, in the first moments of a lucid dream, we start to see, then we move, then feel, talk and only after a while we become to hear. Until that we are totally deaf. And because i use to sleep using ear plugs (to avoid noises from the waking world), i get aware of it even more.

Am i right on this? What do you think?

Our senses do come in gradually one at a time.
It's common to have a WILD or OBE-type start to a dream and not see much at all. But tactile sensations are there. Apparently they are first. Sight is not as strong, I've been reading. I never noticed the sound though. Come to think of it, I may have had some 'deaf' dreams too, but never noticed. I'll think about sound more in my dreams.
If we all lucid dreamed this world would be a better place.
