So last night I had a dream that I will describe as a movie. It was a sequence of events that had nothing to do with me, my life or the world around me, I as a person wasn't even there, it was all fictional like watching a movie.

Have any of you had dreams like this? Why do they happen or what do they mean?

Lately all week I have been having these stressful dreams from the perspective of 10 year old me.

It's odd, as there's no blur of current events in them, its as if I was living out situations in the world exactly as it was when I was 10.

I realize this is the complete opposite of the thread, but it is the oddest feeling in the world. It's so perfectly constructed, where my dreams are typically nonsense.


>No, robots are not even a thing I care much about
Pleb taste.


Had a dream a while back in which I was not a character.

Within a city, the altar in a local church became spiritually possessed and grew a huge laughing mouth, with smaller mouths surrounding, and lashing tongues that whipped mindlessly to the sound of its laughter.

Humans within a radius of the church were stunned where they stood, and sacrifices were orchestrated by forces invisible and "missing," to my dream's eye. Their blood sacrifices followed a very specific pattern, and when completed, the Signs of the sacrifice began to change on their own. The sheer hopelessness of seeing the area of about a city block being subdued before anyone could even conceive of what was going on gripped my heart like a fist.

And right when I thought the worst possible outcome had arrived, the Shapes and Signs began to fold outward from the center in odd geometric patterns. At each landing, within each sign, the humans within them, too, were captured, and dissolved to create the next Sign, and these patterns unfolded slowly, to cover the majority of North America (Burger here).

Again, within the dream, the worst seemed over, and again, things took a dramatic turn. At now-continental scale, from within the chaotic mire of twists and angles, a huge (think 3,000 miles long) onyx gothic-style temple, full of fire, with black stained glass windows boiled from the ground until it stood tens of thousands of feet. A congregation of souls was led inside of it, though my view was obscured, and when completed, the roof split with the force of an earthquake, and a massive demon crawled out of it to begin its work of ravaging the world.

When a majority of the world had then been consumed, and only a small portion of green, living Earth remained, a small human coalition had been preparing to counter the onslaught, and with that suggestion, the dream ended.


Deep, man.


I found a cute and amusing dream online.

I once had a dream that was really vivid. In it I was in love with a classmate that I hadn't seen in several years. I never spent much time thinking about her back then but did think she was kind of cute I guess.

Waking up from the dream it was like my body had sent out the actual "love-chemicals" that you get when you fall in love with someone for real. For the rest of the day I stalked her on facebook and couldn't stop thinking about how bizarre it all was, that the feeling of love didn't go away after waking up. The feeling did eventually pass towards the end of the day.

Anyone ever had something similar happen to them?

Ugh… Last week I dreamt about getting married with my ex-girlfriend (the only gf I ever had), I don't know why, I don't even like her that much (not even like her anymore), we haven't spoke since we broke, we haven't see each other since then, I don't hate her, but she was a completely slut.
Anyway I felt weird, it wasn't a happy dream, but it wasn't a sad dream either, I was a dream were my ex-girlfriend pushed me to get married, for no reason. I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean anything but I felt kinda awkward after that.


File: 1490210691854.jpg (778.28 KB, 827x1102, 1489074601229.jpg)

I had a dream where I was married to a girl, except she wasn't someone I knew in real life, or a character from fiction. We lived in a small apartment and we were having dinner together.
I don't know if I felt 'love' for her, but I remember feeling very happy in the dream. It was very strange when I woke up, it felt like I lost something important to me when I realized it was a dream. It was on my mind for several hours after that, so maybe I did fall in love, or at least my brain thought I was.
It seems rather silly looking back on it, feeling sad for someone that you never met or even existed in the first place. I don't remember what she looked like in the slightest, either.

It would be nice to have that dream again.


That's pretty strange OP, but kind of cool, too.

I'm really REALLY glad for you that the feeling faded, also. Man, that would have been tough if you'd fallen lifetime-tier head over heels for her in an instant.

Had my first lucid dream a couple days ago. I sort of wandered through ever-changing scenery. At one point I deleted some of the scenery because I didn't like it. I told this guy to go run into the street and get hit by a car (what? I knew it was a dream) and he ran halfway towards the road and then ran back. Then I went to look for Tarot cards so I could perform a reading about something in the dream (I forget what) so I went to this tree with a mound of loose red stuff around the base. I began removing the red stuff and revealed first a commemorative plaque, and then a bunch of boxes. I guess one of the boxes had the cards but I had already forgotten about that. I went over to the next tree where there was a picture of anime girls taking off their clothes. I tried to make one of them real but that gave me an erection, which woke me up.

So I was aware that I was dreaming, and I had some measure of control, but not full control.

Picture is my MS Paint doodle.


I had a lucid dream, once. I fell asleep in class in middle-school, and dreamt that I was in a flying-version of my house. Then, because of the chatter of the class, I realized that it was a dream. So I had sex with some Mexican slut. Then I woke up.


I used to have lucid dreams all the time, as in literally the majority of the time.
I think I'm too lazy or pathetic to have them much anymore. I know I'm in a dream but am too tired or lazy to take control.


Is that what everyone does when they first get lucid?

Come to think of it, I've had a lucid dream once before. It was set during my early childhood. But one character in the dream was wearing a hoodie that said "I want to cum inside of Rainbow Dash" on it, which could not have existed back then. This made me realize I was dreaming. So I became my then-current age and had sex with this girl. It looked really awkward like bad 3D animation though for some reason.

Ganbatte shite ne!

I hear a lot about how organizing and sorting things is very therapeutic. They apparently use Tetris to treat PTSD, because getting good at sorting and stacking things neatly gets the brain to relax, and the game is simple enough to play entirely mentally, if you need to distract yourself from something stressful.

Last night I had a really comfortable dream in which all the books on my shelves had been knocked down and I had to re-sort them all, eventually unveiling pic related which had apparently been hidden somewhere all along. It was pretty much straight picking things up and sorting them, but it was really nice, 10/10 would dream it again.

So what are some relaxing things that you think about when you want to sleep?


Shelving books is a lot of fun, that was my part time job in high school.

For some reason, the thought of being asleep in a cabin on a ship has always been very comforting for me.

When I'm drifting off I try to hear the sounds the water makes on the hull, along with the slight swaying of the cabin


I just continue my daydreams until I sleep. I've been thinking about how I'd start a town on the Kerguelen Islands, lately. Man, my town would be great.

Ok, since most of the board is about night time dreaming, let's have a thread about real life dreams and aspirations.

What do you wish to achieve?
How do you plan to reach your goals?
What have you done so far to succeed?
What's keeping you down or what obstacles do you see in your path?

Tell us about your dreams anon, and hopefully we can help each other towards reaching our goals!

The greatest of things: I want to go to college, which I can't afford. I want a PhD in linguistics or computer science. I want to do science and research. I want to live in a small house, or even an apartment, as long as I can take care of a dog and a cat. Perhaps have a group relationship with some men, women, and the dog.
I don't want any money, assets, or anything: I just want to do fun, interesting things, and to explore the world, help people live better lives, learn new knowledge, and invent new ideas and theories.
>How do you plan to reach your goals?
The only way is to move to a country where universities are free.
>What have you done so far to succeed?
Bought a Czech textbook. Haven't been reading it yet since I'm unfortunately not free despite being NEET.
>What's keeping you down or what obstacles do you see in your path?
Capitalism, statism, religion, and family.
Those are some nice goals. I hope things go well for you. Why stop at a masters when a doctorate can help you be a researcher?

I hope you use your good standing to try and help your nation. Brain-drain is why it takes so long for third-world countries to improve.
>Capitalism, statism, religion, and family.
Sounds like you're just blaming other things instead of the real problem: yourself. You can only improve yourself when you recognize what is wrong.
Well, I'd really like to be the king of my own nation, or a great adventurer, or a genius scientist, you know, all the things I'd daydream about when I was a kid. But they're unrealistic. And, since I started growing up, the fantastic in my dreams has declined. Now, I only daydream about a few things.
1: Systems. Systems of many different things. Like, I make up my own government for a fictional nation, or a own language. Usually without a ton of actual story. Just world-building.
2: Stories. Now, while the grandiosity in my dreams has dwindled, a bit is still there. And some of these stories aren't even that grandiose. But the difference between these stories and the ones of my youth is that these never involve me. Always a character who's separate from myself.
3: A mundane life. These are the only dreams I can really have with myself as the main character, anymore. And they go pretty much the same. Get out of NEETdom, get a job, an apartment, I spend some time imagining what the apartment would look like, Etc., then they diverge, a bit. Most, here, just end in me wallowing in alcohol and killing myself. But why is that? These are my dreams. They're supposed to make me happy. Why do I kill myself, even in them? I don't know. Now, some end in me becoming a hermit, building a cabin out in the woods of Maine, or somewhere, near a great forest, and a beautiful cliff by the sea, with a cold sand beach down at the bottom. Basically, I imagine myself living in my dream area. Then, in some of them, when I'm feeling really good, I imagine a woman coming into my life. I'm not often able to dream of women, because my self-inserting dreams tend to be more realistic, and I can't imagine a woman ever caring about me, but sometimes, I'm just feeling good. I marry her, raise a family, we move to Maine.
And that's my true dream, my end goaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


>Sounds like you're just blaming other things instead of the real problem: yourself.
No, I'm a motivated and intelligent person, and I'd do many good things in life if I wasn't prohibited from doing so.
>You can only improve yourself when you recognize what is wrong.
Correct. I believe in the power of the individual, and see that many groups work together to make individuals suffer rather than thrive.

Does anyone here know if it is possible to induce a nightmare? (Preferably a natural method without any drugs or stuff like that)

I'm pretty bored I guess, I don't really experience anything in my life I just live in my room and I want to experience things you know? My life is so mundane, I don't even remember what fear feels like anymore.
I havn't had one in over 10 years I'd say.

I often get bad dreams if I've had too much water before bed. I think it's my body's way of waking myself up to go take a piss.

wew it finally happened

I had fallen asleep on the couch after just having finished the 2001 cowboy bebop movie (It started out well enough but fell off towards the middle. overall I wouldn't recommend it) and some ice cream.

the dream took place in my house at night very dark, only a dim light was on in my kitchen which is where I was. I need to explain something really quick, IRL there is a facility relatively close to my home that works on airplane engines and when they test them you can here it for miles. It basically sounds like a normal airplane passing overhead but kinda different, its more rhythmic and it goes on for hours. It used to scare me as a child because I didn't know what it was.

So in the dream this sound was going but it was much much louder than it is in reality. I was a little on edge because of this and one of my dogs was also visibly frightened. My other dog was not present in the dream. The sound got louder and louder and now it sounded like a lawnmower was right outside my house. So that made me think there was someone mowing my lawn right out the window in front of me. I ducked down behind the kitchen counter so that he wouldn't be able to see me. I suddenly had a cup of boiling water in my hand to use to splash on him if he came in. I thought about going to get my gun but I didn't want to move and be seen.

Then I had a thought this man capturing me and my brother and brutally torturing us. We were tied up and hanging from a tree and he had those giant tree branch clippers and was cutting off our limbs. This scene was somewhat disturbing and gruesome but was not the nightmare part.


File: 1478364531203.gif (4.37 KB, 200x133, 10741_devil_sticker_decal.gif)

>>612 (Continued)

Then I was back in the kitchen. The sound had moved off so I stood up to peek out the window and in the corner of the room, near the window where my dog was laying in his bed before, there was an 8-10 foot silhouette of a very muscular humanoid demon with wings and horns. It looked kinda like the included image but 1000x scarier. Also its wings were folded in not outstretched like the image. As soon as I stood up it started hastily walking towards me and closed the 20 foot distance between us almost instantly. When it got to me it reached it arms out and grabbed me and lifted me up by the neck. I was struggling to breath.

As soon as it got me the dream ended and I was thrown into this sort of semi-conscious limbo state, it was just blank greyness. I thought it was sleep paralysis at first because I couldn't move and kept trying too. I tried opening my eyes but I couldn't and didn't even have a body which led me to realize that it wasn't sleep paralysis but didn't know what it was. I kept struggling and trying to move and eventually it felt like I was moving. Soon after I woke up breathing heavily and trembling. It felt like I was there really long time but in reality it probably wasn't more than a few minutes.
Looking back on it now I guess it was a technically a lucid dream at that point but I just wasn't conscious enough to really take control of things

I hope this was a somewhat coherent read and apologize if it wasn't as I am not very good with my words.

All in all it was an interesting experience and wouldn't mind if it happened to me a bit more often. Obviously I don't want it to happen every night but maybe once a month or so.
Is it strange that I desire this? We humans enjoy a good spooking every now and then- if we didn't the horror genre wouldn't exist correct?


Very coherent, and a good read. I'm glad this finally happened for you. And by the sound of it, it really happened hard lmao. (And the sleep paralysis combo)

Being frightened releases endorphins which make us feel kind of good, alive. Especially for the unstimulated and sedentary, deviation from the norm via a shock really can put things in to perspective.

I hope you have more soon too ;)


For me, when I wanted nightmares, I got them.
Just make sure you want them, and you'll get them.

Have you ever had a dream that felt so vivid and alive that you almost feel ashamed to forget about it? Like you would be doing the people in it a disservice? It's honestly breathtaking to have a dream that makes you want to switch realities with it.


Too many times anon. Their always so vivid it makes me incredibly disappointed to forget.


All the time. I like to feel sand between my feet, smell the ocean, smell drinks and food, anything.
On the opposite side of the spectrum, I once dreamt I was my pillow, and somehow I felt things. That wasn't realistic at all.

I've had lots of dreams this month. I dreamnt a song for the first time today, I can still almost hear it. I'm telepathic and they are forewarnings.


Forewarnings of what?

Also that man looks like Benjamin Franklin and Dennis Quaid had a kid.

this is my dream about 'the basket game'.

some people had stopped a whole group of randoms on the street to play a game.
can't remember really the details butit involved "basketing" them into two groups
with some kind of hypnotic/arabic drone music playing to subdue everyone.
for some reason at this point all the people being basketed were hot as fuck girls
in one group they were in bikinis one girl with polkadot bikini was stretching her leg
up. other group was more middle eastern outfits, all white lace/braided stuff.
i was just kind of walking around watching what was going on, lots of people were.
but i heard one of the organizers talking about how they were going to start killing
the people, and then killing them at a greater depth and number. (cant remember the exact

at this point thanks to dream continuity it's happening inside red rooms of a large mansion,
im the only one watching and got to see the hot girls in their bikini think they were just playing a nice game but about to get killed? in one room. getting pushed together closer. go through to the other room and the other group are all syrian looking and they're naked (pussies showing) except for their lace/braided headwear things. I think i woke up there..

What's your favorite dream you had this month?

I had a dream earlier this month where I was in this awards ceremony kind of place. I left the huge room because I needed to use the restroom, I looked around the building and it took me forever to find a restroom but I eventually found a restroom in the parking a lot. I went to go use the restroom but It was blocked by two men in suits telling me that I must leave. I said no then they threw me out of the area. I found a long haired man who said that he was also kicked out of the building. We became friends and left the area and started walking till we hit a river. We both got on a small boat and drifted down the river. All of the sudden a whole bunch of men in suits started chasing us in their own boats. My new friend turned into a talking can of soda which I shook up and opened. I would fire bursts of soda towards the suited men and every time I knocked a few guys off of their boats, there would be this animation of this superhero flying out of my soda can to tell me I leveled up. I kept shooting at the until I eventually woke up.
