Haha yeah, that might become a possibility in future

But this is a conscious process when fully awake for now


#122

Please add extra scripting to the Ultima version to help with dream interpretation: You just instantly understand what the subconscious is telling you


#123

I will just become lucid and then start talking with my subconscious directly.


#124

You won’t reach that level of lucidity everyday, not even with Dreams Ultima


#125

Heh we’ll see. Perhaps the subconscious will talk to me in the form of a character, or something of that nature.


#126

Why not have the subconscious show up Morpheus-in-the-Loader style and simply tell you what it wants to tell you? :slight_smile:


#127

Extra scripting for that too, pls! :slight_smile:


#128

What I’m mainly shooting for is lucid dreaming everyday!


#129

What I’m shooting for is to become lucid in the dream we call life and begin manipulating it.

Hey, a guy can dream, right? :slight_smile:

I actually don’t know if it’s possible or advisable to be lucid every time you go to sleep. Even if so, you’d definitely need to get enough sleep.

My subconscious and I actually do converse. Not like two people over a game of chess, but there’s a definite communication going on. Often when I’m about to do something that is opposed to my wants/goals, I get a flash of a James Bond type character in my mind’s eye and a sense of disapproval that automatically translates into understanding. Then I can steer the other way.

I am not sure where you got this perception that there is a danger to this. That is well beyond what I have considered as a possibility. In addition, I am aware of one person who has all dreams as lucid dreams.


#131

I never said it was dangerous, did I?

On the other hand, if you keep overwriting all your dreams, you may miss out on some important communication. I also know of lucid dreamers that find daily practice to become exhausting after some time, they just want to get a nice mental rest.

If I’ve had lucid dreams, I can’t remember them. I do wonder if the first thing I would do is to have sex or if I’d use it for something more productive.


#132

Sex, eating and flying it is for me


#133

True, you simply expressed doubt in whether it is advisable.

This is possible. I am certain that a lucid dreamer would have the ability to have the dream become not lucid.

I have had a few lucid dreams. Did quite a few random things. The more ‘productive’ stuff needs to happen once dream stability and control is better established.


#134

Eating? Next thing somebody will say they’re taking the time during their dream to take the most satisfying dump of the week. :slight_smile:

For me, sex is definitely up there for a while. I would also create a meditative paradise. Or create a movie of sorts of the storyline that’s been in my head for decades.

From what I hear, sex lucid dreams are tricky. Once you get too excited, you pop out of it. Seems… anti-climactic.


#135

Indeed. It is almost laughable to think of attempting this before the lucid dreaming foundational techniques are established. Never attempted doing this because I knew my dream stability still needed more work and it would be a waste of a dream to try this too early.


#136

I must say the orgasms in your dreams are very profound… well sometimes you actually orgasm

Maybe I am weird but I just find it immensely satisfying to have a whole buffet of food you wanna eat, how much you wanna eat and all for free.


#137

I admit the main reason I eat is to sample tastes. If I could do that in a dream, I would likely have a much easier time keeping my weight.

What would you know about my dream orgasms? Do I have a reason to get paranoid?


#138

@friday has discovered a way to travel into other people’s dreams, including yours @darkphilosopher.


#139

Hahahah

Well if I can steal from the astral buffet, maybe I can also steal your orgasms :wink:


#140

Inception :wink:
