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!

I want to create a permaculture food forest that stretches for a few square miles. Imagine an entire ecosystem that sustains itself even in a drought, and where every single plant from the tallest tree to the shortest mushroom produces something that can be eaten. I want to design a system for that so that when economic collapse and climate change finally force mankind to change our ways, we have a good example of a viable alternative to implement.


I love jordan peterson


If you do already know of him, you might be interested in his biblical series of lectures. I have been an avowed agnostic for 15 years, and saw very little value in the bible except as a collection of fairy tales that were just favorites told over time by people too illiterate and uncreative to write new ones.

Holy shit, was I ever wrong. He seriously is helping unlock ancient wisdom millenia in the making for the masses in that series. I will never EVER look at life, or especially that book, in the same way ever again after watching just the first few.

I used to play Minecraft and listen to his biblical lectures. I find I process fluid information better when I'm doing something else in the background.
I especially liked Biblical Series X - Abraham, Father of Nations mostly because of the way it's titled. A comment on the video said it sounded like an anime title and that's become an in-joke between my school friends.
I made this vector art for class. It took two weeks of tracing lol

I want to draw my art faster but I can't. At this rate I will not be able to pay my rent with just commissions alone, but I really want to continue drawing instead of getting a "real job" which won't really pay me a lot better anyway in my country. Art is something I love making and I really think I could get popular since some of my art used to get reposted a lot. I'm good enough that people pay me for it, but I'm not good enough to draw fast and consistently and this is only thing holding me back.

>I met Adolf Hitler in a dream once.
Wait, you too? I actually had this dream once too, I'm pretty sure I wrote it in the dream general thread. Basically Hitler resurrected, and was giving a speech in a college about the evil jews and stuff, but nobody wanted to hear him, I spoke with him and asked him to tell me the truth about the joows.

I'm not kidding, that was my dream.

A.K.A: Share your blogpost about a nightmare you've had.

Lemme star by talking about mine, which for some reason, always seem to be disjointed for some reason. Had these yesterday.

First nightmare was me having a conversation to this sort of cockroach with human, slanted eyes with a mouth (kind of similar to David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch), about dissecting a human corpse, which was on a tiny table and was only a torso with a couple of organs with it's head and one arm cut off. As i was doing the operation, the cockroach thing kept talking to me about some non-sense i forgot, while blood kept spurting on my hands inside the human corpse's carcass.

Second one was me starting at the bottom of a sterile, white staircase (which i suppose was a hospital?), which had a backdoor of some sort. When i opened it, there was a large city road that had two groups of crowded people in different sides, arguing about some religion thing; one dude that was from the left side of the street, which was somebody i personally knew, started to fight with the other group which was on the right. Hugged him in an attempt to restrain him from getting his shit fucked by the mob of angry people, and pulled him inside the (what i suppose is) hospital's backdoor and locked it. He was lying unconscious on the floor, as i hopelessly tried to wake him up.

I was in a house with a companion. I do not recall who my companion was - but I know that he was a man. The house was also not identifiable, but the carpet was the same as the one in my grandmother's sitting room.

I began to see tiny flashes of light in the carpet - short, glinting white flashes. I realise that the house is about to blow up. One of the scariest parts of the dream is that I then tried to communicate this to my companion, but I cannot speak the words. I just stuttered and gibbered, never being able to get past the start of words without my voice failing. At some point, I gave up and ran out of the house, forgetting my companion. The house was on a steep hill and was surrounded by concentric rings of wire fence. I jump from the top of one fence to the next, increasingly unsure of my balance. As the house explodes, I am falling a long way.


The whole planet was consumed by some parasitic alien lifeform which were very diverse. I saw closeups of flesh being assimilated by insect-like creatures, worms, formless beasts were roaring horribly. The suddenly there were "humans" walking among them. They were pale as corpses and parasites were showing out from their ears and noses, moving slowly, controlling them most likely. But there was a weird pair: old man and woman who were holding hands and smiling at each other with an artificial expression on their faces. Then I saw another portion of close-up frames of insects consuming and poisoning flesh, laying egss, etc. It was like a badly cut footage. After that old man and woman were dancing and screaming like beasts.
Woke up.


I had a nightmare the other day where I bought a really tiny dog, and I had it for a few days. All of the sudden, something is knocked of a table and crushes the dog; the dog is super bloody and can't walk but is still alive. For some reason, I decide to kill it by beating it to death.

After that dog dies, I go and get a big husky dog with the intent to kill that one too. I end up beating it to death with a hammer for a long time.

Even though I enjoyed it in my dream, I still consider it a nightmare. I woke up crying for those poor dogs, and I was furious at myself for dreaming something like that.


Any tips for inducing nightmares? Dreams are nice but I always feel very alive after a nightmare and I want to have more of them.
Also hi /v/


Stress can get you frequent nightmares, I can confirm, but I wouldn't recommend you to get stressed in order to have nightmares, in the other hand I've read that the metabolism can cause them, like eating certain kinds of food that the body can't process fast prior going to sleep, but that might just cause insomnia.

Seems most of the causes for nightmares are related to physiological disorders like depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc.

>Also hi /v/

lol, someone actually came.

I was visited by death and hell in a dream and as yet I haven't uttered this to a single soul. On recollection hades was very much alive, I witnessed a place of worship filled with parishioners with such goings on that I am still frightened to even give them breath, much less type them out for a lasting record. Frightened not of myself with its recollection , I experienced it and must live with it, but that the reader of such nightmares mighten not be able to contain the story, and that it may well be a curse best kept to myself. Or privilege? Or too personal for others. The blasphemic isn't for everybody after all. Or that this might be its interpretation by others. There is no blasphemy within this domain. Peculiar to visit there, I was not asked if I should like to and was transported there unknowing of the journey I was to take.


Write a book about it.


I suppose I could do a pamphlet.

I don't remember most of my dreams but i know buying my little pony toys at the store is a recurring theme in my dreams


Its hard to remember exactly but pretty much every dream i have is about things in life going wrong, like failing school and crashing my car. They are very believable until i wake up.


I used to dream a lot of bathrooms one to two years ago and probably still do, just that I don't write down my dreams right now.

Subject says it all!

I had a strange one recently, though most of my dreams aren't at all based in common reality, this one stood out not only because it felt like I was in a situation that could happen (in non-dream standards, mind you), but I was also me at an age of I think around 12-13. It also featured my little sister, around the age of 7 or 8 (her current age).

Basically what happens is that our mother who I can only assume is the last surviving of her family dies, and we were left to go live with our older adoptive sister. This is all assumed, as in this is kind of the context I was feeling while in the dream, why things were happening, why I was there. Our older adoptive sister was an anthropomorphic possum though she didn't dress the same way I believe it was based on the main character from a webcomic called 'habits' or 'clementine' as some call it on vice because she was basically homeless. We walked around a downtown area of a medium sized city as she would drink alcohol and flip off cars that passed us by, edging us on to do so with her. I would, but my little sister wouldn't. Then she bought us slushies, poured alcohol into mine and I got drunk with her while my little sister just drank a normal slushy, after that I woke up.

I liked it, felt like I was having fun in the dream in the innocent way a kid at that age would despite the shitty situation.

I forgot to mention the fact that I can't go to sleep with pillows under my head anymore. I sleep on y stomach too.


>>790 That sounds kind of like sleep paralysis. I wonder if it might be related to your schizophrenia


I have a lot of dreams where they continue in a series and build off of each other. When I was little, I had a series of dreams about a man and his son trying to build an airplane, and then a dream of the same duo flying around the world.
I wish I had those kinds of dreams more often.


thats beautiful


From my research, sleep paralysis has little to do with schizophrenia oddly enough. Only like 15% of people with schizophrenic symptoms reported also having sleep paralysis. This may be due to some of the mental fuckery that comes with schizophrenia, but I'm not sure. I guess it's also important to note that the effects of schizophrenia on what you experience while under sleep paralysis is under studied, if at all, and that i do have a more paranoid form of schizophrenia.

I've been really into reading other peoples dreams, as well as my own, and i've been into it ever since i was a kid.
Are there any dream journal-esque books you guys recommend or do you know where i can buy other people's dream journals?

I can't offer too much but your Image reminded me that the PSX game LSD dream emulator came with a sample of the creator's dream diary. I believe it was translated into English by fans a while back.

IIRC several famous artists like kafka and dali noted down their dreams in their diaries to use as reference. But I don't know if those materials were ever reprinted or if they only exist in private collections. Wikipedia has this list of dream diaries (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dream_diaries) but I don't know how complete it is, and some may not be translated or easy to find.

Other than that I don't really know how many dream diaries have been published in the mainstream though you can often find people's dreams on lucid dreaming forums and such. Also on chans like 420 chan has a dream board and at least one big thread recounting dreams, there's a dream thread on tohno's /ot/, uboachan has an old dream thread. There are probably others too. You might also want to search for old dream related blogspots and livejournals on google by restricting the search to those domains eg. Site:*blogspot.com "dream" "Diary"|"Journal"(don't know if google still uses those operators so you might have to change things to get it to work).

If you want dream-like fiction you should check out short stories like those of Jorge Luis Borges, Kafka, and even plays like those of Samuel Beckett and other early absurdists and surrealists.

Sorry if none of that was what you wanted OP. Hopefully someone more informed than I will come along.


this gave me more insight on LSD. yes i;ve heard of it but thanks anyway


A lot of the textboards have a dedicated dream thread. They aren't journals, since everyone is posting, but you can still read them.

Recommend media about dreams or that have a very dreamy feel.
Starting with an easy one, David Lynch's work deals with dreams a lot, particulary Twin Peaks and Mulholland Drive.

>your own dream diary
>Traumnovelle by Schnitzler
>La vida es sueño by Barca
>Ett drömspel by Strindberg
>Works by Borges (in german there is an anthology by him dealing with dreams in myths and other scriptures called Buch der Träume. I was unable to find an english one)
>not necessarily dreams but Murakami is very dreamlike in Kafka on the Shore and Norwegian Wood
>Lovecraft has many tales about dreams
>so does Thomas Ligotti
>there is a short book detailing the dreams of oppressed groups during the nazi regime in germany but I can't remember

And finally, the dreamers bible
>Man and his Symbols by C.G. Jung

You seem pretty well read. I'll definitely check out that Carl Jung.

I'm currently sick (fever, pain, etc) and I'm having really strange dreams but strangely realistic, I usually can tell apart a dream from reality, but when I'm sick or extremely tired my dreams a far more realistic and intense.

Let's share some Fever Dreams. I'll start, I recently dream about having a fight a with a person with whom I live, I can't remember the details, but he did something to me so in return I took a laptop from his room, apparently that was really important to me and he got upset, so he wanted to punish me, he and my mother grabbed me, they wanted to "mark" me, I can't remember what exactly was but I think they had a Tattoo machine and basically to make me a mark on my arm, I obviously put resistance and barely managed to escape, now I was hiding on my brother's room, I tried to sleep and the next morning I felt that horrible anxiety feeling, I went outside to try to occupy my mind in something different, I went for a bike ride for my town and found an old friend, and we were having a little chit chat, then I wake up, my head hurt a lot.

>“REM sleep is essential to temperature control, [and] fever suppresses REM,

I found this, that's probably why every time I have a fever dream my head hurts so much.


File: 1562722423448.png (885.93 KB, 1280x720, [Niku] Asobi Asobase 02 (B….png)

And the most recent one, apparently I had a reminiscence of a dream I had before about some sort of "game", that memory is probably just 'fabricated' by the dream but I'm not entirely sure, it took place on my childhood house so that makes me believe it could be a real memory, but whatever.

This was the sequel to that dream apparently, it was some sort of RTS game but it took place in real life, the map was my Grandmother's house, and the players were my cousin, some sort of cyborg guy, a guy I barely can remember and I, it seemed pretty much like AoE, but the difference was the technology, apparently it had nanomachines or that kind of cyborg stuff, anyway, what's interesting about this dream is that often people will come to my house, in last dream was a burglar, I was planning to deliver him to the police, so I went to the station, told them, bla bla bla, the game me some money and food for some reason. The same night the burglar approached me and told me how he was betrayed by everyone he knew, I felt sympathy for the guy and gave him the food, in the end I didn't deliver him to the police and he left my house but became a 'friend'.

This time there was this girl who lived in the streets and apparently she was really dangerous, so I went to the station, bla bla bla, the police this time were a bunch of assholes btw, gave me little money and food to bait the girl, I ended up giving the food to other guy, some sort of sultan, and now he suspected I wanted to deliver him to the police, then I woke up and my head was hurting a lot again.
