Dream Sharing

Postby TheDude » 25 Feb 2015 23:04

In this subject I am proposing a challenge: Create a method for dream sharing.

It seems obvious that this would have to be done between multiple people with deep connections to each other and they would both have to be experienced LD'ers, but just in case it's not, it is now. :D

Any research you can find on this subject is welcomed and appreciated; as are theories. Be sure to site your sources.



P.S I do not think that it is likely for there to be a method that consistently works for multiple groups of people or if it is even possible, but I think it would be both entertaining and interesting to explore this topic.

At this website, Rebecca Turner has an interesting article about mutual dreaming. On the Home page, click tab "Articles", then Category - "Paranormal" - scroll down to article -

Since you took up the position that there is no such thing as dream sharing I must ask you: what scientific evidence do you have that dream sharing does not exist. I may have jumped to conclusions, but it seems like you based your stance on the matter solely off of personal experience.

Maybe you and your friends need to establish a deeper connection or maybe you are right; in either case I feel the need to share the Ullman and Krippner experiments. In short, one of these experiments which took place at a rock concert was successful in turning a group of people into a source of a telepathic signal. There were five people all within 100 miles of the concert who served as telepathic receivers; they were told to record their dreams at 12:00 midnight. One of the receivers recorded dreaming about a pheonix which was an item on one of the slide shows that was shown at the concert. One of the others could not sleep but thought of a large number of birds flying over water. I first heard about these experiments along with others on an article on this site; here's a link: http://www.world-of-lucid-dreaming.com/what-is-the-evidence-for-dream-telepathy.html

This could be a coincidence, but I'm not quite convinced that it is due to other studies that had similar results. If we assume that it is not a coincidence - which I will do briefly to consider all of the possibilities. This means that dream sharing is not an obtainable concept. It is now a very real possibility. The challenge is now finding two individuals who share a deep enough connection and even tougher still are experienced lucid dreamers, who could potentially pull it off.

If it is a coincidence, than this thread is meaningless and we just wasted our time. ;)

I believe dream sharing is possible, and I have experimented in the past with dream sharing, but with little success. I think I will do some more research on this again and post sources like you said.

My biggest issue with dream sharing is not the ability of two minds to share a matrix or construct, although that does in fact create very interesting issues. No my issue is the mean of transmission and reception of the "signals" if you will. Sort of like two people with ham radios but no idea if they work, how they work or if they can receive signals. Until we better understand if and how this sort of telepathy might occur everything else is test shots in a dark room at an invisible target. :?
Is Lucid Dreaming the brains preparation for the next step of human evolution when we can escape the corporeal bond of our bodies?

To nesgirl: Can you elaborate on the term you coined - lucid dream probability? I think I understand what you meant when you said this, but i would like to be sure I completely understand what you mean.

To Goldkoron: Excellent!

To buildit: That is the main reason why I made this topic: to find out if there is a way to consistently send and receive "signals"
