Yesterday I dreamt I was on holiday with a bunch of people, and I wanted to take a bath but the bath was in the kitchen and everyone was making tea and sandwiches. I'd run the bath but I couldn't get in it. I had managed to take my shoes and socks off.
There was a girl scout meeting, apparetntly, and they ensured privacy by putting sticky tape over the doors to indicate they didn't want to be disturbed. I thought this was a cool idea and I'd finallu get my bath, but the sticky tape was in the room with the girl scouts so I couldn't get it. Also, my friend Dave had a talking dog, and nobody was supposed to know it talked. It kept forgetting nd saying things, but nobody except me noticed. The last thing it said before I woke up was "Don't forget my DVR".
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

I sometimes dream weird scenarios (not usual dream scenarios but boring RL scenarios) involving people I know for about two minutes, or eg. five lines of dialogue. Then weeks, months, in one case almost a year later, these scenarios actually play out. I hear the first line of dialogue, I recount my line from the dream and the other says the exact next line. Weird shit. At one point I dreamt I was chatting over some website I didn't recognize with a guy I barely knew, weeks later I made a facebook account and recognized the website, then all of a sudden this guy starts talking to me.

Is anyone familiar with tests about people waking up 1 minute before their alarm?

Ill keep it short.

Riding at a ski area in a Gondola. I hear in the background a guy tell the driver to be careful. All of a sudden we tumble off a bridge and are falling, and falling. At first I was comfortable thinking I would survive, when it was clear those below me would not, but as it kept falling and falling, I did the math and realized there was no way to survive, so I aborted the dream.

The next one is a little bizzare, and was very lucid. Ill edit it though.

Basically it was body snatchers, except the transmission was through sinuses. Basically everyone went around smashing people in the nose to break the skin, and allow the infection in. I was immune, and was trying to save people that didnt realize what was going on. I had a few close calls where I almost got discovered, but the dream went on for a very long time. There was a scene where I tried to warn a group of guys with afros, but they didnt take the hint, though most of them fought back eventually and a few got away.

Ive been meditating(not really meditating as controlled breathing while repeating the word "peace"((the inner kind, not the world kind)) before falling asleep and have noticed a marked increase in lucid dreams, and mostly good ones. I also can control them a little bit without waking up until something gets out of control. In the above dream I specifically remember wanting to save my close friends, and sure enough, they started popping up in random places in the dream, and I tried to warn them. I seriously would have to estimate that the dream was a full 30 minutes, given my memory of so many of the details, that had to have taken that amount of time.

Cracked has a few articles about dreams and how to control them. Its worth looking up if dreams interest you.

You gonna make this easy for us, or do what I did and just post that there was an article of importance on a website somewhere? :D

Through the wormhole with Morgan Freeman has a lot of examples of similar tests, some of which are mind-blowing. Its where I got the idea for the meditation, and while it could easily be placebo...the effects are quite real, and remarkable to be honest.

A wise decision.




Speaking of decision-making, how many people in here can (somewhat) consciously make decisions during their dreams?

For example, can you alter the flow of your dream? Can you get out of your director's chair and say, "All right, all right! Enough of this silliness! Let's move on."


I've had the illusion of making decisions in my dreams, but I don't know they are real ones. I'm skeptical of other people who say they can do that.


While dreaming, are you of the position that the dreamer exerts no control over the dream and/or over his/her role in the dream?


I don't know enough to have a position. It might be possible, but I'm still skeptical of people who say they have consciously controlled their dream.

I can remember one dream in which I was aware that I was dreaming. I thought it was lucid (ie, that I had control), but when I woke up, I realized that what I had control over was utter nonsense. All I remember about it is that I had control over the number of syllables (and yes, that's supposed to be vague). I think it was a verbal dream – there were no visuals. I was immersed in another language at the time, and I was having quite a few purely verbal dreams.


Cracked has an article about this, and people who play lots of video games are even more able to do it, as they are used to managing fantasy actions. I absolutely know I can guide my dreams to some extent, and lately have been very close to conscious while having them, but definitely do not have absolute control either. Its a give and take relationship where I am willing it to go in one direction, and it kind of does, but will often throw a curve ball in at the same time. I suppose I could have been dreaming the conscious part, but given my memory of it, and the level of lucidity, I know I had some control for sure. I certainly do not question that some have trained themselves to exert quite a bit of control, though, I feel like that is a dangerous thing to do to some degree, because at some point, the two realities, have to become a little blurred.

Well, you saying it should alleviate anyone's fears.

In all seriousness though, I think its quite possible to imagine a scenario where someone acting out in their lucid dreams violently, might lead to actual violence, that may not have otherwise have happened.

Has anyone seen Mike Birbiglia's "Sleep Walk With Me" movie? I liked it. He has some condition that he acts out his dreams, sometimes with frightening outcomes.

Ok so I'm dreaming and there's a nice looking woman. So I know I'm dreaming and decide I should lucidly cause her to come over to me.

She disappears like a cheap special effects explosion from an 80s movie and I'm suddenly awake fully dressed. Next I dream I'm pissed off and have to post about it. This of course doesn't workout since I'm still dreaming.

Cool, you finally learned lucid dreaming? Or to lucid dream? How should I ask that?

I think it would be, "So you finally learned how to dream lucidly?"

I was able to get that far before I read your stuff.

One thing I realized from this recent one is. I can do whatever I want. I just have no control over others. That's were things fail. For example, the woman exploded.

You have, you just have to learn, it has to be done subtly though, so you don't stop dreaming. HAve you tried the looking-at-your-feet thing for when you are directing your dream so much that it starts to fade? If it starts to fade, just look down to your feet for a few seconds, then the dream is back solid.

What are your nightmares, if you have any?

I usually have one of two, both involving my teeth. Either they are rotting and break apart and start to just come out, like in It's Always Sunny when Mac and Charlie fake their deaths to get away from Mac's dad, or they get all... pulpy, for lack of a better word. Like when you've cooked kidney beans for too long and the only thing holding them together is the skin, but as soon as you touch it it's all mashed. Yeah, happens to my teeth in my dreams, I'll just have a mouthful of fibrous, squishy teeth.

One of the recurring features in my dreams revolves around the men's room. In one variety of dream the men's room is seamlessly integrated with either a barbershop or an arcade room. These dreams also tend to have the strangest urinals one can imagine. The other variety is that the large men's rooms are half filled with women.

In one dream the women were mostly concentrated around the stalls (this was like a stadium sized men's room). The men were at the urinals. After I left the urinal I turned around to see a lady had taken my spot and had pulled down her tights to just below her derriere. I stood there for a moment, admiring her ass wondering what the two men on either side of her was thinking at the time.

Is there a lot of quartet singing in these dreams?

I never thought of the look at your feet thing because I'm too busy failing to do something else.

So I dreamed I was on a boat with my wife and kids. The kids were a little younger than they are now. We were sailing past the island of Alderney (which I've never seen) and it was all low-rise beachfront properties, Victorian or Edwardian in appearance. The kids asked the name of the place we were going past and I said "Alderney". Any significance was lost cos then I woke up.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.
