      Experiences with Time Dilation\ full lifetime of choice?

      I dont believe in "reality shifting" . I dont even consider the tiktok version a thing, but I studied some actual papers on Everettian Multiverse and it didnt convince me. Im more of a QLC guy. go roger penrose!
      Anyways, I still want to experience full-length lifetimes where I do stuff thats impossible in this waking life. being a mongolian warrior, or a kpop idol or whatever.
      Is it possible to get a full life in one dream? Will I need to spin every 10 minutes to stabilize the dream? does the sleep deprivation+ pink noise method work?
      I happily accept any positive input on this.
      Really I have some motor disability IRL.Im not a slob; I train and also work and study...but Im very interested in the dream-life because waking life presents some limitations for me.

      To be honest with you I'm not really sure I believe in time dilation in the way you're talking about. In Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming LaBerge suggests people could feel like they spend a longer time in a dream than passes in real life because your brain fills in the blanks where time should have passed. For example, if one dream scene is in the morning and one is at night your brain automatically assumes a day has passed, much like scene changes in a play or film.

      All that being said I have heard accounts from other people that Mugwort can cause time dilation. If you are going to use something like Mugwort or any other herb/supplement though please do your own research before using it. Outside of that the only people I've really heard claim to be able to utilize time dilation are very experienced lucid dreamers (according to themselves) who can get lucid practically every night (again, according to themselves).

      Either way I wish you luck with your endeavors! Please let us know if you have any progress

      I have been thinking about time dilation lately. I'll have to do a bit more research, but it seems to me that one's perception of time can change - for example experiencing things in "slow-motion" during a crisis. So I wonder, if you experience this "slow-motion" while dreaming, would it cause both your perception and your surroundings (which are internally generated anyway) to speed up relative to the external world so the dream would seem to last longer?

      I suppose if this theory has merit, then nightmares should seem to last longer in general than less frightening dreams? I may do some research in the dream journal archives here on Dreamviews and see what people have experienced. My thought was, one could theoretically incubate a vivid nightmare before becoming lucid to extend their dreaming experience. Maybe not so fun - but it might not have to be a nightmare, so much as a crisis.

      Just a thought.

      Are you able to share these accounts? I'm curious to hear what the experiences were.

      I found some growing nearby in a few places - I guess it's a fairly common plant around me. Turns out there was some growing at the corner of my house. Anyway, it seems to work fairly well for giving me lucid dreams. Unless, of course, that's the placebo effect or just coincidence. I haven't tried the higher amounts that the guy in the video said caused his time dilation experience. I figured I should work my way up in case there are any side effects.

      On that note, I would encourage anyone to research this (or anything) before trying it. It sounds like mugwort can be dangerous if you're pregnant, for example.

      Yeah, be careful with wild plants that you don't know. I Agree to do your research!! Even foraging for edible things can be dangerous for certain people.
