    I've stopped dreaming. I rarely have dreams anymore and if i do, it's not interesting as when i was younger.

    My dreams were so amazing, if it could be downloaded, it would blow people away as it was so creative and grand. Everything was always so huge too. I would even dream about a whole 'nother planet i was living on and taking a subway or type of train from one to another city but i can't really describe it. i remember seeing a university but it was a skyscraper of sorts and it was monolithic. it looked like a combination of a multi-tiered parking garage with these strange lights coming from it but different jagged shapes on different sides but i knew it was a university. even though i describe it, it's not really accurate because i've never seen any building like it here and that is just one of them. i remember the sky was hazy that day. the planet must have been the size of a large star. And it wasn't just the physical as i had a sense of the society, politics, and a very long, deep rich history as if it was real. what i knew was that society was older than the history of mankind here. even the people in it, i also knew about their lives, personality and their dreams/goals too. it's like i was god and i created that. it was grand. A lot of the evil or violence etc is not part of that society, it would be alien. it's not even the same universe. i remember in the dream 'world' meant literally another universe entirely. i remember mumbling it to myself within the dream as i was surveying the surroundings as if my understanding of it was coming partly through osmosis and partly through something from deep within the recesses of my memory. The part that is the most difficult is it can't be explained because there is no reference point here to do so accurately. it was just different. It's nothing like here and a different civilization. The brain is amazing in how it can create and fuse information to come up with something new. I"ve never even seen anything so amazing even from sci-fi movies to relate it.

    Now my dreams, if i have any, are just rehashing what happened mundanely in my everyday life with people in it i don't like but had to be stuck with for one reason or another. very dull, even depressing. it almost feels like i cut off from some aspect of myself. that i've finally accepted that is my reality for now is here and the other is but pipedreams by dreaming of such places. but it makes me still wonder if it exists in some way and i traveled there.

    what fascinated me most is the dream didn't seem just my imagination at work but that i went somewhere i had known before or remembered something long before here, like i was going back to a different time and place.

    Mine are spectacular and I dream even if having an afternoon nap.

    The detail gets me.

    And the places are so different.

    Its amazing how ones mind can produce these detailed movies.

    Never have nightmares.

    Don't dream about sex.

    If I want to have a nap or go to sleep I just go over the last scenes and I drop off..I don't think I dream until later but I can fall asleep in a minute or two when I can remember the last dream.

    I forget then rather fast.

    nothing like that. i remember a girl describing her 'acid trips' and for her it was some psychedelic chaotic nonsense and hallucinations that made no sense.

    i had an interesting dream last night

    i didnt dream 80% of the time for most of my life
    so i would have 1 dream per 3 nights sleep roughly
    and/or recurring dreams once every month or soo
    now i dream every night
    i usually have around 3 dreams per night

    1 dream i had last night was a little out of the ordinary
    so im noting it

    it involved a husband & wife i knew for a long time but didnt really have a personal relationship with but we were kinda like family.
    the wife had just got out of hospital from being operated on for bone cancer
    & i was sitting in a buss stop talking with the husband who was sitting there completely naked, while his wife sat on an ambulance bed beside the ambulance that was driving her home, completely naked while the ambulance staff sat inside the ambulance and chatted waiting for the wife to decide she was ready to get out of the ambulance stretcher bed and walk into her house
    i walked up the road with them past what i thought was there house to another house which was a bit hidden and chatted with the husband
    as we arrived at his front door, he turned slightly and said ti me
    we wont see each other again
    i felt a bit annoyed and sad.
    i offered him my phone number to call me if there was anything i could help with
    and he said
    i still have your phone number and i have not called it before now.

    meanwhile his wife was walking up the street naked as he was behind us slowly.
    i decided the dream was getting a bit kinda annoyingly weird at that point and so decided to wake up.(i can wake myself up during any dream if i choose)

    im leaving out a few other more technical details

    my main surprise was them both being naked
    that is extremely unusual for my dreams

    i have had dreams like this
    they are dream master pieces
    like a great work by a painting master

    lusting after them is like becoming addicted to meth
    you need to try and enjoy them for what they are and not chase them

    some of which can leave me deeply emotional impacted for days afterward
    but that is like dating
    the more you have the more hardened you become to the heart break as you up-skill yourself emotionally

    chasing them creates problems
    behavior problems
    emotional problems

    as im reading
    some stuff im not commenting on
    other stuff i will
    this for instances
    primal drives of the ancient human survival system and brain
    the feeling and links between baby and mother
    the feelings of security and all encompassing connection to safe surroundings

    very key, very core, very primal, very strong
    als connected to neuro-transmitters, while also being able to be stimulated by certain drugs
    etc etc

    fyi nicotine patches can give you really serious night mares

    if you ever want to try having a nightmare that may leave you emotionally scared for a day or soo
    try a strong nicotine patch on while you sleep(at your own risk[expect it to impact your work the following day])

    nicotine patches
    they can raise your heart rate
    so dont mess with them while your sleeping if you even suspect you have a bit of an odd heart pattern.
    you may end up completely wasted like you have been through a marathon over night ... not notice it soo much
    then go into cardio arrhythmia during the day suddenly and have your blood pressure drop suddenly

    you need t monitor your heart rate as soon as you wake up for the next hour to see if your resting heart rate on nicotine patches is closer to 80 instead of where it should be around 50 or where ever etc
    that extra 20bpm can do serious work on you for 5 or soo hours and result in sudden energy collapses sudden mental fatigue etc etc etc

    as mentioned
    at own risk
    do your own reading

    that's a safe assessment

    fact is maybe you are on medication ?
    maybe you have been through some prolonged emotional event causing trauma which is un treated

    but think about what your doing
    your using your dreams to judge your waking life
    comparing one worst case against the other
    expecting one to be the savior
    this is a dependent construct
    addictive process of dependence
    like depression

    regardless of your dull ordinary life
    you need to treat the inner you

    many people believe in such things
    such beliefs mixed with religion become very very dangerous to you & your sanity and basic functionality inside the normal world.

    anyone playing with these aspects trying to sell you religion and dreams should be avoided like a deadly plague

    this is very common i dreams
    old memory's mix with old and new emotions of different strengths
    they all get mixed together and parts of your mind try to make sense of them and rationalize them
    part of you desires VERY STRONGLY to make some aspect of it try to "save" you from some other aspect

    that is very normal human stuff

    thanks, it was the most generic thread title
    dont want to be banned for going off topic in some litigious whiny persons thread who is hiding behind some moniker of platitudes and fakeness

    i was going to post in yours but saw your title was less generic.

    maybe a mod can simply shift my posts to your thread if you think it fits

    I'm still trying to figure out how you can not have a personal relationship with someone but they are like family?
  14. wegs Matter and Pixie Dust Valued Senior Member

    I've always found dreams mystifying in the sense that sometimes, I remember them in vivid detail...other times, nothing. (yet I know I dreamed about something) Hmm.
  15. Seattle Valued Senior Member

    Trying to figure them out is an exercise in futility IMO. It's like trying to figure out what a drunk is trying to convey. When you dream your brain is trying to repair itself basically. There is little to "understand".

    It's usually either totally nondescript or just some frustration. The common one in literature is "falling". When I can remember one that isn't specific to something that has just occurred in real life it's usually just mildly annoying. Something like being in a house and you just never quite find your way out because it has so many rooms.

    People dream every night, they just don't remember most and if you don't write them down or make some real effect upon awakening you don't remember any of them.

    I don't like dreams.

    One night I was sleeping so good. Suddenly I felt hard hits on my head one after another and I had to move away and turned the light On.

    My wife had a shoe in her hand and she was looking at me with so much hate.

    -... but... what is worng with you, woman?! Why you hit me that hard?!

    - I had a dream you were cheating on me.
  17. RainbowSingularity Valued Senior Member

    i had a normal dream for the 1st time in about 2 or 3 weeks tonight

    You ever walk through a door into another room and wonder why you came there?
    eg: Walk into the pantry and not know why-what you were looking for---?
    It was the doorway
    You had the thought in the kitchen and the memory of it was place constrained.
    The same is true of many dreams
    When you awaken, it is much as though you had transitioned from one place to another.
    that being said
    for most folks, rem(rapid eye movement---the dream part of sleep) is very close to consciousness
    and when you awaken during rem---you will most likely awaken with at-least remnants of the dream.
    many do not awaken during rem and some that do have no memory of the dream
    many of these do not believe that they dream
    sleep studies indicate that those who claim no dreaming. seem to have had rem sequences during their sleep cycles
    whither hence?

    Just lately been having great dreams but only retaining a small segment of each

    Read somewhere dreams was the brains way of defragmenting itself. Why dreams are so disjointed

    Seems to fit
