      Thank you very much.

      I saw a thread about it from 2014, I think. Same issue. I'll just leave everything as it is from here on. I haven't been spammed or trolled for awhile anyway.

      By the way, Happy Birthday!

      Oh, I see. Moderation of comments has not worked for years. Again, apologies. Now I know what NOT to do.

      Comment from Summerlander - Yesterday 17:14:

      Wow.

      You made it clear that there is a distinction between dream interpretation and metacognition of oneiric causes. Would I be right to assume it comes naturally to you? It seems like that head space is readily available to you while most of us speculate post-REM sleep.

      In one of my most recent lucid dreams I failed to recall the first step of a plan of action, which was to experience the Minecraft world in 3D by plunging into the telly while my son played the game.

      Instead, I ran around in a dream park in frustration because the plan eluded me, all the while being chased by a peculiar Beano-like character that I found annoyingly distracting at the time.

      Had I had your metacognition at the time, I might have realised that 'Beano' looked like someone straight out of the Minecraft world. So I may have inadvertently avoided a representation of the memory of that particular step in my plan of action. It seems I literally evaded the externalised memory 'coming to me' as we so often say when we forget things.

      In hindsight, it makes more sense that he was never random, but rather, served an experiential purpose.

      Not sure what is going on with the comment section. Apologies. Nothing is working as documented.

      I have always experienced phasing sequences, often in the same order, in every sleep cycle since childhood, though not so vivid in every dream. Duality (that does not exist in waking life) allows me to perceive what is going on in three modes of navigation; instinctual, liminal, and lucid. My main phasing is vestibular with physicality, somatosensory (increased awareness of hands and touching), imaginary but vivid sense of movement, and enhanced cognizance with the desire to seek text (but which decreases everything else including sense of physicality).

      Managing liminality (and lucidity) and duality have always come spontaneously to me (long before I even heard of "lucid dreaming"), which it is why it is strange for me to see people write only about waking-life-related "interpretation" while completely ignoring the nature of dream state navigation stemming from dreaming itself.

      From what I have read, many people do not experience different types of cortical patterns or phasing AT ALL, supposedly only imagery or in some cases, third-person only. So ultimately, it seems people's minds can be as different (in the dream state) as night and day.

      Thank you very much for commenting. I have found it is rare for someone to "get" that dream content is often primarily the result of navigating dream space even though this was known many years ago, as in this quote:

      "Similarly, he (Herbert Silberer) has shown that the conclusions of some dreams or some divisions in their content merely signify the dreamer's own perception of his sleeping and waking...in persons who are gifted philosophically and accustomed to introspection it may become very evident."

      My "5,100th Internet entry" refers to my main online dream journals in case you are wondering.

      I added this to this site because of my reference to it in a later dream.

      Is it? I guess it's a habit I developed after 20 years of dealing with Internet buffoonery (though mostly on two now defunct sites including DreamsCloud); countless people who have no idea what the dream state is but pretend to, including "professional interpreters" who come forward when not asked and lack the understanding that dreams are concurrent processes. Thanks very much for commenting.

      Yes, but over time, it varies with new content (as I started when I was very young) and I have experimented with many formats for online dream journal entries and usually do not include additional details. I do not follow any mainstream concepts or beliefs about dreams as none of them have any correlation with anything I have ever experienced in the tens of thousands of dreams I have worked with. Society shows no indication of understanding instinctual dreaming (dream control without lucidity) or dreams in general. Mainly, adjusting my extent of imaginary physicality is the main dynamic behind my dreams whether lucid or not (which I typically do by using a staircase, walking on a fence, elevated plank, and so on). It is simply the result of losing discernibility of the physical body and its orientation upon entering sleep (which also causes falling and flying dreams). Most often, it creates associations with flight. For example, airplanes, birds, helicopters, etc. (even flying buses) have appeared at one point in my sleep cycle virtually every night for over 50 years but often not noteworthy to a longer dream's content. Statistically, birds occur twice as often as airplanes and airplanes twice as often as helicopters. I've learned reasons behind that but it is too much detail to go into here and of course, I have always flown unaided in every sleep cycle whether lucid or not.

      I've never seen this method of categorizing dream types. Is there a list or method behind the way you determined the dream type?
