daydreams turn much too serious as you get older


All i daydream about anymore is having sex and being dead


I dunno about that. >>59 They certainly do involve a lot more sex now, though, yeah.

I *do* however know this feel far too well for comfort: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9jut-9NBkY


For like three years, I've had a lot of daydreams. Like it's started to replace video games. It's interesting because it started off as daydreams about "what if vr was real" and slowly cut out the middleman. It was a lot of arbitrary situations. I wish I could l lucid dream to experience some of the worlds I built. The closest I can get is roleplaying games.

I remember a free graphics on this years ago, anyone have advice for lucid dreaming that doesnt wreck your sleep schedule? Don't want this board to devolve into that, but it's relevant.


Check out lainchan.org/zzz
There's a thread about lucid dreaming techniques.

I wanted to post about a great dream I had, but when I tried to do it I discovered that I had forgotten most details.
What is the best way to remember your dreams? What are your tricks, if you have any?

Ok, I'll start a dream journal.
I seldom remember my dreams, I hope it really does work.

Several years back I dreamed I bought a PS3 and started playing it. I was so real I woke up hyped as hell and got sad after realizing it wasn't true.

I ended up buying one the day after that.

I dreamt I was playing in a snooker championship in Iraq during the reign of Saddam Hussein.


I keep my phone on my nightstand and if I wake up from a dream I quickly dictate it to a note while half-awake.



I had previously done the same thing with a little pocketbook but I have since just been using the notepad on my phone. Just the act of writing it down encodes it in memory better and I can look at it whenever


Try walking yourself through the dream again. Try to remember the earliest thing avout yiur dream and start from there. Talk about it in the present tense, as if you are actually doing it again.Try getting back into the different positions you were when you were sleeping. Start writing your dreams down more frequently.

I'm about to smoke a j and do some dream root. Any advice?


Smoking marijuana inhibits your ability to dream


Will confirm, however, if you smoke before sleeping every night for a while, you'll get really vivid dreams soon after if you go cold turkey.

Hello /dr/ i wanted to talk about a recurring dream i have and maybe seek some guidance as to what it could mean. Also share yours if you have and maybe we can help each other.

I'll start:

I have this recurring dream where i engage in a fight and maybe lose. To elaborate further, it wall starts with an intense feeling of anger, as if i'm being wronged somehow and it gets to a point where i can't take it anymore and lash out. Usually happens that i'm near the person who wronged me and i get closer and closer, call their attention and throw the first punch, but here's the kicker (no pun intended heh) as i continue hitting and fighting i notice i'm struggling to even hit em and every punch is like my hand is a pillow to them, completely harmless, now you'd think that i'm just fighting resilient people, but i've done everything from mushing their face to the wall, to hit them with a plank and again it all seems like i'm hitting with a pillow.

So at that moment upon which rage secedes and reason showers my brain, i stand aghast at the scenario of my dream and finally realize the inescapable reality of the situation, i shall never defeat my foe.

So i wake up.

Hmm, not to sound flippant, but I think you might be reading too much into these dreams. Certainly, they're stressful, but I don't think it's a commentary on you or your psyche, it's just the kinda thing that would be, dreaming about. I mean, I've certainly had very similar dreams–or the opposite, where I can't *stop* hurting people–but I really think it's just a combination of: the brain fucking with you, because that's what dreams do, dig up discombobulated neural circuitry while they're cleaning up your wiring; venting stress — or rather, responding to stress, even the stress created by the dreams themselves!

By fixating on them, you're just fertilising them to keep growing under your skin, perhaps interfering with your daily interactions, repeat.

I might suggest trying to de-stress in general: give yourself some (more) private time away from people, pick up (or focus more on) a hobby, get some fresh air in nature, take a vacation, read some philosophy to help you understand other people's stupidity and ignore them. Just, little things, to get you thinking on something else, and reminding yourself of your own individual motivity.


I don't have very many recurring dreams. One recurring element in my dreams, though, has been RVs. For a week straight, all my dreams involved RVs. They stopped after I watched a video about one, and I don't know why.


I dream about work all the time, but I think that's normal for most people who work full time

A lot of my dreams involve doomsday scenarios too


Dream of being a man OP, and not a faggot.

Anyways, sounds like you have anger issues, not saying you're a violent faggot, but that you are anger at someone and frustrated.

So if someone is making you angry to the point that you dream about, I say confront them and get it over. Worse thing that could happen is that they beat you into a pulp, but hey that's life for you.


my dreams aren't identical, but they are similar.
I keep ending up naked in public, usually by a pool or some other body of water. also, Kids are usually around me. anyone know what the hell it means?

What? Talking about uboachan is against the rules? I don't see anything about that in the rules? Who is the owner of this place?

I'm *p* sure I've visited uboachan before (and all of the similar 'waifu'-niche *chans); I've always personally been a fan of lainchan (and wakachan). I remember uboachan being nice, though, and somehow not actually drowning under glaciers of its niche boards.

Admin, are you an INFP or just similar to me? I've been very to almost the idea of dreamy feelings. I tie a lot of it into memories, like I put a sort of semi-real filter over things like high school and middle school memories. Idealized feelings met I suppose. I was very into lucid dreaming and inducing sleep paralysis too. Pic semi related in a subjective way.


I meant very attracted to.


>are you an INFP or just similar to me?
INFPP precisely. Or that's what I have gotten in tests. The general description fits me pretty well. When it suits me I can be very social though.

> I was very into lucid dreaming and inducing sleep paralysis too.

I admit I was never much for inducing it.

When I was young, up until I was 8 I was a chronic sleepwalker. I would wake up in the living room nearly every morning. My mom would catch me standing by the sink as well.

One time I woke up to find myself peeing in the cabinet under the sink and my mom screaming at me. That was probably the most outrageous incident though.

I don't remember when I started experiencing sleep paralysis, but it I would estimate around 6. They weren't originally accompanied with hallucinations, I would just wake up unable to move. I remember being scared, and I would pray to God every night before bed that it wouldn't happen. (I was raised Catholic)

I don't know if this was the first time, but this is the earliest I could remember.
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.



I can always spot another INFP.

I experienced sleep paralysis a few times when I was maybe 2 1/2 or 3. I would see a medieval knight move extremely slowly across the room or news anchor faces merge into each other, black and white I think.

I got into lucid dreaming when I was like 13 and was able to finally do it when I was 14. I loved being "lost" in the feelings that they provided, like a way to live in the afterglow of feelings I would get in normal dreams. I would always think back on successful attempts and really memorable normal dreams, I can still remember them if I try or something triggers it.

I tried to induce sleep paralysis a few times when I was 14-16 I believe, it ended up being very loud and I would get scared somewhat quickly, very rarely having the nerve to go through with it.

I can be social as well, it just takes a fair amount out of me. My own head and all its little nuances seem a lot more real than the world I see in front of me.

I daydream about artillery a lot, but I do want artillery. Is that anything like it?


What kind of artillery dreams?

Is your house getting shelled?

Are you making dinner for a bunch of scud missiles?


The dream involves a fairly complex plot to build artillery and burn down the multicultural center of my university. There is a lot of different things though, like I will get the feeling of being lost about half way through it because the buildings are not in the same places, and just a wrong turn down an ally takes me to this maze like thing of back ally-ways that I can't ever get out of.

Not to hard of a dream to understand actually, but it re-occurs a lot. I mostly full on dream it though


Are you in some ultra liberal school? is it a "diverse" safe zone or something

One time I had a dream I was in a Fry's food store. The owner of Fry's, John Flora, came on the intercom and said

>Hey this is Fry's president John Flora. I am calling on all of my shoppers to take arms with me and rush the government

The rest of the dream was a glorious revolution ran by a man who owned a large chain of grocery stores


I dream of Apocalypse for some reason

Has anyone experienced sleep paralysis? I've had episodes pretty regularly since I was a kid, at least once a month.

How is it like to you? Do you get it going into or out of sleep? How are your thoughts immediately before going into sleep paralysis?

I can tell when it is coming on but usually am in an altered or hypnagogic/hypnopompic state, and I'll just slowly drift into it. It still occasionally surprises me, I feel drawn in.

Usually what I get now as far as delusions is a soft buzzing or grinding which seems innocuous at first, but ends up growing louder and louder and just feels insane and malevolent. I have in the past had sort of delusions or hallucinations, I think my earliest memory of this happening were with big spouts filling my room with water, but these don't happen as frequently any more. It is mostly just the buzzing and some dark abstract dreams now.

I believe I usually get this going in to sleep. I'll be drifting off and it will just seize on me. I will no longer be able to move very much, and I'll lay there breathing waiting for it to end. It never ends unless I struggle, which leads to panic, which then leads to difficulty breathing. I do break out eventually though. I find it difficult to go back to sleep immediately, if I try to I just happen to go back into the sleep paralysis state. It helps to get up and do something else for half an hour before trying to sleep again at those times.

I believe I once got it sleeping in class. I tried to yell for help but could only manage a soft moan before I snapped out of it.

I've experienced it twice so far.

The first time was last year, full body.

The second time was around a month ago, and then it was only below the waist, same as >>26

Well, I'm not sure if it was sleep paralysis, but I experienced something similar several months ago while listening to this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcYucC3644k

I didn't try to move my body, but it felt as if my whole body was folding in on itself.
It was strangely pleasant.


>Only Skin
FUCK I love that track. Possibly Newsom's masterpiece.


That's really cool, reminds me of this a bit: https://current931.bandcamp.com/track/black-ships-ate-the-sky-2

I occasionally feel a chill down my spine or body if I'm listening to or reading something that happens to mesh well with my emotional state at the time.

This is a physiological thing brought about by poor sleep habits, genetics, sleeping prone, etc.


yeah but you want to be careful though, it an be a symptom of exhaustion

I waffled back and forth over posting this in /gf/ since it's ultimately about relaxing and bringing good vibes, but my gut told me it was really /dr/ at heart, so:

What kinds of music do y'all listen to when you just want to chill and sleep?
For me, it's jazz; putting on the MusicChoice jazz station, let the speakers ring, and just slide under the warmth of cymbals, string bass, and reedy tones. The ultimate comfy.

I used to have sleepovers with this kid that could NOT fall asleep unless the Disney channel was on. Blaring loud, all lights on in his room. I need absolute dark and silence I don't know how people do it


How did YOU do it during those sleepovers?


I would sleep in his office down stairs!


Heh, how did he respond to that?


I rarely listen to music before sleeping. It makes it harder to fall asleep.

When I do, though, I've found that folk and stuff like shoegaze/dreampop work best.
