      That's wonderful, I feel like I would be both really happy and really disappointed that I realized the world was fake but not that it was actually a dream to become lucid in, haha. Thanks for sharing.

      They felt very real and I woke up feeling VERY happy it was just a dream. The feelings of horror and fear as I saw the mushroom clouds and realized what they were (getting past the initial denial), they felt so real. Same with the aliens. I thought I was toast for sure.

      I suggest reading the book version of RP1. It's so much better.

      Oooh, now I gotta watch Ready Player One. On my list anyway.

      Did you have fun? Do you like dreams like this? Sounds intense and I love this types of dreams. The nuclear explosion features in my dreams often.

      Happy dreams

      What a creepy dream. Good thing you had weapons to fight back and defend yourself.

      Yeah, I could. I'm not very active in the forums anymore, though.

      Ok, yes it's hard to give a name to that particular state.
      [A hallucination is something that happens while awake. It has been scientifically documented as happening to a person when they have been sleep deprived, namely deprived of REM sleep. The person will then "dream" during waking state, this is what a hallucination is. It will happen to anybody and is an unavoidable consequence of REM sleep deprivation.
      It has become connected to mental illness and drug addiction namely alcohol abuse. As mental patiences are often prescribed drugs which will inhibit their REM sleep (they do not dream). Hence both groups commonly have hallucinations when they stop taking whatever drug they are on.
      I am not in either of those groups and I didn't manage to do it while walking around I was in bed both times.]

      As to the imagery while eyes closed but still aware of external stimuli. This could be one of a number of states. Either coming in or out of dream i.e hypnagogic.
      Or a state that I have experienced but I do not and have not found a name for it, which is as follows:
      After closing my eyes for a short period of time, I can see images appear in my minds eye (seemingly behind my eyelids) these are usually highly vivid and detailed, realistic or abstract. I previously thought they were random but have quite easily managed to affect them by giving a prior intention to my mind before beginning.
      However, I found it difficult to have much interaction with DCs like a regular dream, as you have. Although with more practise i'm sure it would be possible.
      So I'm not very knowledgeable about it but I would have thought someone else in the dreamviews universe should have experienced it too. Maybe you should start a thread on it if you haven't already.

      No, just intense hatred.

      I don't hallucinate while awake and walking around, though... not sure if that was what you were trying to imply. Tripping balls 30 minutes after getting out of bed almost sounds more like a form of mental illness than a side-effect of dreaming.

      When I say I 'hallucinated', I mean that I am in bed, eyes closed, but still feel, smell and hear the real world around me, while also 'seeing' dream imagery through closed eyes. In this 'hallucination', a DC did something that pissed me off and the burning anger simply persisted a good few moments after physically opening my eyes and sitting upright. I've slammed my fist into a (real life) wall because of a similar incident a few years ago. I was about to hit someone in a dream but woke up very suddenly!

      Ok this interests me, as I have had something similar in the past. Elements from a dream that have carried on into waking life as hallucinations. For me, the common theme with these has been the intensity of emotion. They have ranged from disturbing whirlpool effect of my front room carpet and coffee grounds (whirlpool in a cup xD), which lasted about 5 mins outside of dream time. To having a ring of orange flames coming from my body which lasted a half hour before subsiding. I would say the intensity of emotion directly effected the time lapsed (unsurprising, though I didn't think about it at the time).
      So I'd be interested in knowing what feelings you were experiencing, you said extreme anger in one, any other emotions?

      Oh, the new 'It' is great. It wasn't that scary to me, as I'm an adult now. The 1980's 'It' scarred me for life, though. I was 11 when I watched it.

      No, I didn't know I was dreaming at the time. Though it wouldn't be impossible. I've been having a lot of dreams in which "lucidity" is part of the non-lucid dream plot. How do I explain this... I think I know I'm dreaming, but I don't 'really' know. Even though I'm right. I have my lucid 'powers', but I'm not truly lucid.

      Good reason not to watch that movie!

      I got out of the gate and found myself back in the "normal" dream world.
      That must have felt like a relief! Hey, wait did you know that you were dreaming then?

      That happened some time before.
      Also flying through window used to make windows to behave like a bubble... made of thin rubber. It held me briefly but I passed it eventually and it didn't shatter.
      But for quite a long time I just pass through objects when I want that.

      Yeah, I've "phased" through objects before too! Oddly, I'm never too sure what'll happen when I make contact. On a few occasions I burst through a building, shattering concrete, glass and coming out the other side, and other times I harmlessly phase through as if the building isn't even there.

      I too experience inertia while flying... Both in LD and astral projection. If I'm relaxed and concentrated enough I choose to fly through objects.
      Often I hear as if I have jet engines somewhere behind... maybe where my feet are, but I don't see them.
      For me it is instinctive to have hands spread when I'm maneuvering, and by body(as ironman) when I'm flying fast. Never in front of me. I also never used commands.
      My max speed was measured somewhere in millions light years per second... I was flying between galaxies very fast

      I once had a dream about Ben and Matt having a fist fight at my lake house.

      "I still remember once when I was very young, hoping that if I held on to something tightly enough as a dream was ending, I could "pull" it into reality. It hasn't worked yet! But your dream struck a chord."

      If only that were possible!
