    2. 10 Dreams with Vestibular System Correlation Set 1

      by , 05-25-2018 at 08:33 PM
      Afternoon of May 24, 2018. Thursday.

      Vestibular system correlation is the most common cause of the autosymbolism of the dream state.

      Vestibular system correlation is the result of the illusory dream self lacking the discernment of the physical body during the first stages of consciousness reinitiation by way of RAS (reticular activating system) mediation and modulation. This is a biological correlation, yet also inclusive of liminal anticipation of the waking process.

      In this series, I will be including my original date codes rather than dream titles, as each event described and explained in this series is only part of a particular dream’s autosymbolic process. The date code is year (four digits), month (two digits), day (two digits), and the hour of the sleep cycle in which the dream occurred (two digits). This is the only viable way to order dreams, which I first used at the beginning of fifth grade. The order here will be entirely random as I look back and choose particular dreams. As I have tens of thousands of dreams and their causes and meanings not yet posted anywhere online, I am considering new methods of dream journal entries, such as sets of 25 to 50 dream events in a singular entry with summaries that are more concise, with their causes and meanings.

      1) (1966122301). This was a series of dream sequences based on resets by way of liminal dream control (though of which partial lucidity was present at times, though lucidity and dream control are unrelated despite popular misconceptions). The most vivid event resulted in being saved from a fall from the Rose Street apartment’s roof by a “Shadow Cat” (from “Gay Purr-ee”, a 1962 American animated film musical). Based on the foundation of liminal anticipation of hypnic jerks (which I call “hypnopompic kicks” when they occur at the end of a dream), the scenario developed out of the unexpected disappearance (in my dream only) of the external staircase at the back of the building while seeking to use it to enhance my dream. (Since I was a toddler, I knew that staircases were autosymbolic of the dreaming and waking process, so I typically used them to vivify and sustain a dream.) Why I chose the “shadow” (in the form of a bizarre anthropomorphic cat silhouette, though in my dream seemed more like a helpful human adult, probably modeled after my father in this case) from an animated movie I had seen only hours previously is interesting. Most people see the “shadow” as eerie or even malevolent, yet the form comes from the preconscious, not the unconscious as so many erroneously believe. I have only ever seen the “shadow” as either a loving entity or a thread of my conscious self identity being rendered within the dream state for my illusory dream self to acknowledge and find validity and stability in (as the dream self lacks a real physical body, which vestibular system correlation is all about). (There is also a hidden factor regarding cats, in that they supposedly “always land on their feet”.)

      2) (1964070506). At age three, floating, flying, and falling dreams were at their peak. In this recurring series, I sometimes chose Woody Woodpecker to be the factor of falling out of the dream state, depicted as driving my brother-in-law’s car with Knothead and Splinter as front seat passengers. The event was Woody Woodpecker driving off a steep embankment with a sustained scene of them in the car (as viewed by hovering in front of the scene) rolling down the hill, screaming, and waving their arms with their eyes bulging. This was loosely modeled after real-life experiences, one influenced by a road in Florida that was so wavy in shorter distances it was like going up and down on a rollercoaster, another influence from riding in a car up to Grandad Bluff, and another from the steep ride to Chipmunk Coulee, where we lived. Ultimately, from what others have written about dreams, these were not even technically nightmares. Fear was minimal and it was more like watching a curious impersonal scene. There were versions of this dream where they were people, not cartoon woodpeckers, but the rendering was still not very realistic. Vestibular system correlation autosymbolism occurs in different forms. This was more of a projected form rather than a directly experienced form.

      3) (1965110203). This dream was lucid, though I did not seek to alter it. A gigantic bat flies over Carol (older half-sister on my mother’s side) on Chipmunk Coulee, though it is mostly only seen in shadow against the late night sky. There is no fear on my part, though she appears startled by the event. This dream vividly repeated many years later while I was otherwise awake and walking to another sister’s house just before Carol had a heart attack (but recovered from it) and coincidentally having moved to a location near the original dream setting. This certainly does not indicate that my original dream was premonitory, but that my mind “borrowed” and vividly repeated it while awake to designate prescience of the event. Additionally, I never saw large bats (flying foxes) in real life until many years later when I moved to Australia.

      4) (1972020407). The song “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In” by the 5th Dimension mainly influenced this dream. I titled it “When the moon is in the Seventh House” (the first lyric of the song), which featured the moon turning into a giant animated crow and falling into the closet of the southwest bedroom of the Cubitis house as the waking alert factor. (This is the closet I went to get my clothes to get ready for school this year.) As is often the case, this was projected vestibular system correlation rather than directly experienced. (There was also influence from a liminal focus on the January 30 1972 lunar eclipse.)

      5) (1968111508). In this dream, I watch a giant eagle-like silhouette flying across the sky, between two clusters of cypress trees as tall as skyscrapers. There is an extraordinary sense of timelessness and nostalgia. This dream was influenced by three main factors; the Pogo Possum comic strip by Walt Kelly, the swampy Fort Ogden area in Florida where I lived when I was very young, a deck of educational cards that, when flicked through, display an animation of wild animal silhouettes with a bird silhouette flying above them. (Another deck featured a rabbit hopping into a hat, the hat rolling around, and a dove flying out.)

      6) (1981112904). I see an oversized shadow of a raven (though I do not actually see a raven) move up and to the right (in a diagonal path) in the house in Cubitis upon the wall between the kitchen and the entrance to the hallway. It seems very late at night. There is a very vivid sense of timelessness and isolation, though not in a negative sense, only as if I am the only person in the region or in this realm. It is as if I am viewing time itself in the form of a bird.

      7) (1988021308). With much of my conscious self identity extant, I find myself in the backyard of an unfamiliar residence. About five men are inside but soon come outside. One man comes out pushing a bicycle, down the steps and into the backyard, and I focus on how the bicycle seems an exact “duplicate” of mine. I say, with a sudden clarity, “How is this possible?” and he says with a very friendly tone, finishing with my first name as if he knows me very well, “Parallel ground Claude”. Thus, some RAS personifications (even though they always maintain the same underlying essence) seem wary of the waking process while others embrace it, though the ultimate purpose is to initiate consciousness. What defines the differences, or is it just incidental? Both a bicycle and an airplane are autosymbolic projections of the liminal awareness of the physical body while in the dream state. In this case, RAS even explained the meaning to me. His explanation of “parallel ground” is a perfect analogy to vestibular system correlation, where the illusory nature of the imaginary dream body correlates with the discernment of the physical body in the final moments of waking.

      8) (2014030706). In this situation, I am back in my room in Cubitis in late morning. A large bird, which resembles a pelican, is standing on a chair near the west windows. There is no other furniture in my room. There is no danger, and it seems very majestic. It seems to have the essence of a very old mystical being and I think of the mythical phoenix. In my dream, as in many other dreams, I seem much younger, probably only about fourteen. However, unlike with many other non-lucid (though very vivid) dreams, I have a very vague awareness of my current conscious self.

      9) (1971011502). This was a very enjoyable dream despite the implications. In late night, I wander out onto the carport (liminal space autosymbolism) and see that the house is apparently floating high up within a tornado. I watch debris fly by to my left (beyond the carport) and I am amazed by the vividness. I do not feel alarmed at all, only puzzled. On the east end of the carport, a large bird flies down to gaze at me, as if to offer help, though remains directly on the end of the carport. It seems very “wise” and has the essence of a very old “teacher”. I sense that it is “king of the birds” and it is even wearing a crown. I see that it is exactly my height. Although I associate it with a hawk, it was influenced somewhat by the Woggle-Birds from “Jack and the Beanstalk” (a 1967 TV movie), though far more “realistic” if still somewhat sketchy.

      10) (1967122702). This extraordinarily vivid dream was directly influenced by photographs from a book; the Time-Life Nature Library “The Birds”, which I had gotten for Christmas at age seven. (The photograph was taken the day before my dream occurred on December 26, 1967.) My dream was a curious shift of RAS modulation (the primary form being a snake as the biological waking alert factor) turning quickly into vestibular system correlation. I was walking on a dirt road near an isolated cornfield very late at night, with stalks about twice my height. I had a curious “realization” of being followed by a snake though it is not crawling very fast. Soon, a large owl flies down and attacks the snake and I no longer feel wary. As with many of my childhood dreams, I had no clear awareness of my parents or my age

    3. 40 Helicopter Dreams (Part 1)

      by , 05-20-2018 at 12:46 PM
      Afternoon of May 20, 2018. Sunday.

      To save time and space, I include my age (for the first version of each dream) rather than a specific date. As I have only a tiny portion of my dreams online (about 5,000 presently), this list is very incomplete. Vestibular system correlation, inner ear dynamics, and the autosymbolic rendering of liminal physical body awareness in sleep are the cause of helicopter dreams (though spiritually represent the Merkaba), even for literal carryovers into the dream state (such as actually having been in a helicopter, elevator, escalator, and so on). This is a key factor of the dream state caused by the lack of viable discernment of the physical body in sleep (and the ambiguity of vestibular system function during REM sleep), and being as such, is unrelated to the myth of “interpretation” for waking life. (Dreams are autosymbolic, not symbolic in the conventional sense. They are rendered by way of the preconscious during RAS mediation, not the unconscious mind or so-called subconscious. The dream self is the subconscious personified, which in non-lucidity does not even have viable access to the unconscious mind or the conscious self identity, but does have more access to the transpersonal interconsciousness than the conscious self in waking life typically does, which is a key factor of prescience and other inexplicable experiences.) For some dreams, there is detail in this entry that was not included in the original post.

      This entry lists the factors of helicopter autosymbolism and is not meant to fully explain a particular dream or combined causes of a dream.

      1) The In-Store Ride (4). Combines checkout (dream exit) autosymbolism with vestibular system correlation. I am vividly aware of being upside-down in semi-darkness in a fetal position in a coin-operated (kidney-shaped) helicopter ride. (Prenatal memory influence.)

      2) Hummingbird Satellite (7). In childhood fantasy and naïvety, asteroids are perceived as giant prehistoric bones. One is approached by a “helicopter” in space, which is actually a kind of spaceship (possibly unmanned) and is caught in its orbit, whereby an “umbilical cord” (cable) connects the “helicopter” and “asteroid” (influenced by a photograph from a Time Life “Birds” book that I got for Christmas at age 7). I await news of its status.

      3) Hallicopters… (8). This series of dreams was heavily influenced by my father’s Hallicrafters radio and the “helicopter” sound it made on certain channels.

      4) The Sacred Rock of Thought (14). A helicopter only appears in the last segment to lift the rock (shaped like a brain). I have liminal dream control and “wish it away”.

      5) Rocket Science? (15). A school bus slowly flying above the horizon in the distance has helicopter rotor blades and ambiguously has an “ancient” essence. Smoke billows out from the back. This is the last scene in this dream. (My dreams often end with vestibular system correlation as the waking process.)

      6) Pterodactyl (versus my Helicopter) (16). This dream is based around liminal (non-lucid) dream control and the attempt to mediate the vestibular system ambiguity of the dream state. The pterodactyl is the RAS modulation factor.

      7) Helicopter Digger (26). In this dream the vestibular system correlation fails and my dream is sustained when the helicopter, flying overhead where Leonard and I are fishing, crashes onto the ground as it oddly transforms into a digging machine (as the rotor blades continue to dig into the ground, which is autosymbolism for a desire to sleep longer).

      8) Not by Helicopter this Time (34). I decide to get bicycles (which I am not sure are ours) to travel with Zsuzsanna rather than taking a helicopter, which is having problems, clotheslines (at least perceived as such) caught in the rotor blades and partly melted rotor blades. This has links to other dreams, such as ones where bicycles had melted and another where only a rotor blade was tied onto parts of a clothesline. Both bicycles and helicopters are a similar form of vestibular system correlation in the dreaming and waking process.

      9) Vapid Comic Strip (34). This vestibular system correlation is based more on the precursory anticipation of the waking process and remains static in the ultradian rhythm event. I am looking at unusual daily (black-and-white) comic strips but I only recall one more clearly. A woman approaches a man near an alley and asks him if he has a helicopter and he says “no”. After the woman walks away, he says, “There goes my social life”. This is a play on the dream self not interacting with people in the real physical world until the waking process (such as vestibular system correlation) is initiated.

      10) They’re After Baby Huey (35). I am watching Baby Huey (the cartoon ducking) in an unusual (fictitious) movie. Airplanes (as well as helicopters) are bombing the area. He does not even seem affected by an atomic bomb in the distance. There is a likely play on the UH-1 Huey Helicopter.

      11) Twilight UFOs and Souls (36). A small unmanned helicopter gathers data about the souls that fly thought the sky just before sunrise.

      12) Haunted Fun and Budgie the Little Helicopter (36). Even though the main theme features “haunted places” and “ghosts” (though at an amusement park), Budgie the Helicopter flies around at one point, seeming life-sized and “real” (though which is a mechanical park attraction, I assume, rather than “alive”).

      13) White Camels (38). I fly around using a portable helicopter propeller.

      14) Angel Doctor (48). Helicopters are only mentioned in this dream, as a dream character erroneously states that I am probably flying around because of a helicopter holding me up with wires. (This dream still ties in with liminal recognition of the autosymbolism of dreams.)

      15) In Defense of the “Siren” (53). Burl Ives talks about how my wife Zsuzsanna called up the giant turtle and crashed his helicopter in a direct reference to the movie “The Bermuda Depths” (a television movie from 1978).

      16) Futile Shooting at a White Gorilla in the Enchanted Forest (53). “Twelve multicolored butterflies eventually encircled the area (horizontally) so swiftly that they created a clear impression of a helicopter rotor - in fact, a subtle sound of a rotor was vaguely discernible later on during a transitional (shift in unconsciousness) period.”

      17) Sensual Bliss, Enhanced Sense of Touch, Infinite Peace (53). Another family visits me and my family, arriving and leaving in a helicopter. I also telekinetically cause a stolen barbecue to fly back to its owner.

      18) The Helicopter Bag (53). I try to cause a medicine bag (with marbles in it, though the contents become pillow stuffing later) to fly by use of a toy helicopter’s rotor blade and rubber bands.

      19) Volcanic Events (53). In a very surreal situation, the potential of rescue by remote-controlled miniature helicopter in lifting us from a rug that is somehow floating on lava (but of which is ultimately not perceived as dangerous) is part of the scenario.

      20) Helicopter and Seagulls (54). Seagulls telekinetically guide a helicopter I am flying in (in which the pilot had disappeared) back to shore. A young mischievous version of Zsuzsanna (implied to be a seagull in her “true” form) flies up (from the surface of the ocean) into the doorway to greet me.

      21) Snake Afire (54). RAS modulation using the snake alert factor is sustained into a much longer dream scenario with Zsuzsanna. A man in a helicopter shows up and flies over the area checking for the presence and activity of snakes. He later walks up with a temporary map saying how they are mostly in the mountain belt at this time.

      22) Pterodactyl Driver (54). The white spy from Mad Magazine’s “Spy vs. Spy” is driving a real car. His head turns into a pterodactyl’s, which then spins and becomes a helicopter rotor blade, and which then flies up and away.

      23) Blocked-off Buildings (54). A helicopter crashes near a building at the end of my dream, causing glass to fly, though I (and another unfamiliar dream character) am not injured.

      24) Straight-up Mining (54). In this dream, vestibular system dynamics are very skewed. Cars and trucks go straight up and down a tall mountainous structure for mining purposes. I ride in a helicopter with my wife Zsuzsanna in the first scene.

      25) Dreams Define the Path of Waking From Them (55). A helicopter rotor blade is connected to the top of monkey bars (apparently with a clothesline, as the unlikely and illogical structure was supposedly being privately used to hang clothes on). Vestibular system autosymbolism and transitional associations with waking autosymbolism is combined, as the helicopter rotor blade also implies part a bridge of sorts in this case.

      26) Helicopter Landing (55). A miniature remote-controlled helicopter somehow flies me back to our bed in our present home. Both it and my dream body phased through the ceiling in this curious waking transition autosymbolism.

      27) Amusing Helicopter “Rescue” (55). Pierce Brosnan, as James Bond, but only about five inches high, flies a miniature helicopter to come to “rescue” me from the top of a commercial building. I oblige my dream’s intent by placing a pillow-like version of myself in bed into the helicopter to wake myself.

      28) Helicopter to Spaceship to Helicopter to… (55). This dream was somewhat “dull” in its level of dream self awareness until the last segment. A helicopter flies overhead but transforms into a spaceship (unknown if alien or not) and back again each time it flies over.

      29) Lucid Priest Indeed (55). The last scene in my dream (though part of a false awakening) features an upside-down silhouette of a helicopter in a magazine I am looking at.

      30) Being Wrong in a “Nights in White Satin” Argument (55). An additional dream state indicator (as well as the unfamiliar bedroom I am in) relates to playing and hearing the “Nights in White Satin” Moody Blues song. I get into an nonthreatening argument where I mistakenly remember the song included sounds of helicopters, actually thinking of the beach scene from “Apocalypse Now”.

      31) Helicopter Not Landing Yet (56). I am in a very large room in a commercial building where at least two unknown males are looking at monitors. I am “sleeping” on blankets on the floor. This setting is ambiguously supposed to be occurring inside a helicopter that is flying over a foggy area with jagged rocks (and I feel vague movement as such), but I am never concerned about any possible danger.

      32) Return Flight Oddity (56). There are different types of vestibular system autosymbolism, though both are caused by liminal anticipation of the waking process. In this case, the association is static and an image is featured that displays, in four panels, an airplane (top panel), two helicopters (each in middle panels), and a flying man in a cape (Superman, bottom panel). All are facing to the left, indicating a liminal desire (or intent) for reinduction.

      33) Bizarre Tourist Trip into the Past (with Apollo 11) (56). From a helicopter falls the Apollo 11 spacecraft, its parachutes immediately opening, the craft seeming a bit larger than it should be. I expect that it will probably explode (liminal dream control) and it does. It explodes into a massive fireworks display, debris flying everywhere over a dense forest, though my dream continues from here into other typical forms of waking process autosymbolism.

      34) A Beautiful Beach, Cool Water, and…Almost Kicking Someone (56). I expect to get a “ride back” by helicopter, but instead, I become more self-aware and my dream is sustained by water reinduction on a beautiful beach at night.

      35) Helicopter Ride into the Beautiful Mountains (56). I ride with others to high beautiful mountains to a fictitious workplace where lamps are made from precious stones, as well as at least one transparent statue of a dolphin with human limbs.

      36) The Wrong Dodo (56). I am viewing the scene as if incorporeal. A dark-haired girl (probably a young version of Zsuzsanna) is piloting a helicopter. A large dodo (bird) with a blue ribbon around its neck jumps into the helicopter from some sort of door or opening on top. (This is not logical, as the helicopter’s rotor would otherwise prevent an event such as this.)

      37) Fixing a Bridge (featuring Dean Norris) (56). A helicopter drops off a young version of Zsuzsanna in a bridge-fixing scenario with Dean Norris.

      38) Usual Induction; Atypical “Snowmocopter” Waking Transition (56). A composite vehicle of snowmobile and helicopter occurs in this dream.

      39) No Toy Soldier Rescue (57). A helicopter is apparently on a “rescue” mission to recover toy soldiers from the backyard of our present address.

      40) Helicopter Vestibular Autosymbolism in Education Report (57). With the Department of Education report I am working on, I also have papers related to my own ongoing education. I see an A4 paper with my sketch of a helicopter on it and consider if the parts should be labeled.

    5. Music From The Dreamscape

      by , 05-19-2018 at 09:00 AM
      Music has never really played that big a role in my dreams, however there was this one time where all of a sudden my home town began to morph into a cityscape on the banks of an unnamed river, avant-garde buildings appearing, towering over me, while this song played.

    6. Dream - Stubborn Dream Laws

      by , 05-17-2018 at 04:52 AM
      Date of Dream: THU 17 MAY - 2018

      Dream No. 334 - Stubborn Dream Laws

      I don't remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, I was in the suburb of Endeavour Hills. My mum and I were driving to the shopping centre but all of a sudden, the car stopped and wouldn't work anymore. I got out of the car and started pushing it along the road but as I did so, a massive amount of traffic was coming at me. There was this small dirt path at the side of the road that I decided to go down instead. It was an interesting sight because this path actually took me through a lot of nature and there was a big playground along the way though. I eventually reached the shops though.

      The next scene also took place at Endeavour Hills but it was taking place as a sub-scene. There was this holographic board in the sky like a selection roster for a custom Super Smash Bros. Tournament. After I looked through all the characters, I found out that Murray wasn't there. I decided that I wanted to replace Wario because he had this smug look on his face like he would cause some trouble towards me. There was a problem though; each time I placed Murray on, Wario would come back, Murray would be removed and Wario would laugh.

      Eventually, I worked out what was wrong. I actually clicked on Murray's icon which was in a separate area and it something like that I had to customise it. I opened the customisation menu and a few options came up; all the options made Murray look really distorted though. I picked one and he was finally, permanently placed on the roster. I discovered that Sly was already on the roster but now there was an extra spare spot, so I thought I'd go and put Bentley on as well. In the dream, Bentley's image wasn't too distorted. The only change with him was that he had a big black moustache in the shape of Ned Flanders from The Simpsons.

      Later on, my mum and I were back at our current house. I looked down at my phone and saw that Murray had left me a message, his ID picture was of his Sly 4 appearance. He said something like “Thanks to you and your mom for rescuing me earlier”. Note how he used the American spelling in his message and that he not only thanked me, but my mum as well. That's all I can remember about that scene.

      In the next scene, I was at a version of my TAFE that looked absolutely nothing like it does in real life. My friend JS was one of the big grassed areas with her teacher aid MK and they were playing a game of mini cricket. I then walked passed one of the classrooms and saw SHig teaching a class. I forgot what else happened in that scene.

      I then left that Chisholm campus and moved to another one to suggest that I was now due to start my bachelors degree in accounting. The first thing I thought to myself was “oh no, there'll be nothing but lifts”. I went to examine the back of the building and I was pleasantly surprised, there were two staircases glued to the outside of it. I then went into the building and saw that there was not only lifts but a ramp as well.

      One of the staff came up to me and greeted me; a middle aged lady with medium length, bleached blonde hair. We ended up in the bathrooms, on the way to the classrooms and there were these three boys in there. I could tell that they were causing some trouble as they were standing on the lower step and the lady was on the higher step, yelling at all four of us. But I stepped up to the same level as her and innocently smiled at her. She then said to the boys that they should follow the example of the “lovely young lady”.

      The lady then walked all of us towards the classroom and I eventually was stopped by a sight. Taking a lift was compulsory to get to this classroom. Just as the lady was about to open it, I hesitated and then said, “please wait while I try and do something. I promise I'll be quick”. I then looked around carefully and said something like, “Dreamy WB or Murray, could one of you please come and take me in the lift?”. Neither of them responded.

      I became scared and vulnerable and said to the lady, “Sorry but I can't attend classes today”. I then left and walked out the building the way I came in. That's all I can remember about this dream.

      My dreams are giving me a run for my money at the moment. No matter how hard I try, the stupid dream won't let me have access to any dream guide! It's time I wrote a letter to the Awareness Behind The Dream again and got to the bottom of whatever's going on. At first, I thought it was just tricks on Dreamy WB but now it's Murray as well? That's just poor... And he's even just barely joined the dream guide team!

    7. Working and Rewriting History

      by , 05-11-2018 at 03:10 PM
      Dream 1: I am in our backyard and climb over the neighbors fence and want to get some boards lying around on the ground. The woman whose yard I am in comes out of her house and sees me, so I ask if I could by her boards, and she says yes, does a dollar sound fair? I say yes, I will go get a dollar, but she asks me how I will pay her, and i say cash, but she wants PayPal, so I ask her what her PayPal email address is, and she says some stuff, but I can't really get it right, so she writes it down for me. Then she goes to go back inside, and I want to ask her if she would pay me to do some stuff for her, like I did with people in California, but I can't think of much of anything, so I don't say anything and she goes inside. Earlier she had said something about a foot, but I misunderstand, and when I see them at home, I realize they are all 1 foot long, though they really aren't because they are all different lengths, about five inches apart. I am thinking how if I work and get some money, maybe I could get a chop saw, as my Dremel is only so powerful and is rather small. Then I am in Home Depot with my skates on and I see the same woman spray-painting, and I skate around near her, and set up my metal bucket in a spot where I will have plenty of room. Then, I wonder if she is really spray-painting, or just testing out a spray painter in Home Depot. Almost as if suggested by this idea, I see I the next aisle some men testing out fishing rods, which are PVC pipes attached to strings which go into rubber tires and go up and down. Then, when I come around the thing I have been skating around, there a bunch of workers there, and one of them jumps out of my way to fall on the ground because he thinks I will hit him. At first I skate past, but then I come back and ask if he is alright, which he says he is, and thanks me for apologizing. Dream ends.

      Dream 2: I think that I am a boy in this house and I see nearby the mangled body of a boy who was squished in the front seat of a car by some bad guys. Suddenly, time has rewound, and I am the boy, and I know what the bad guys will do to me, so I make the car go really fast and it goes around the corner and I know that previously I was dead by now, so I try to stay alive. Next thing I know, the suburban is travelling up a steep hill and is going slower and slower, I know the bad guys are behind me, but I can't see them, so I am not worried. Some other cars come vrooming up but then they too have to go slow to make it up the hill. Suddenly the sub stops and won't go any further, I think oh know, I can't push it, but when I get out to try, I suddenly have a bicycle, which is easy for me to push up the hill, Saxon is now with me, and he runs up the hill, towards the summit which is close, and doesn't listen when I yell for him to get his bike. I push my bike up to the top, and see two brown shacks which I guess are really restrooms. When I go over to the girls restroom, the wood suddenly turns to dingy glass, but Canyon and Ceri are just talking inside, but then Canyon sees me, and I think she thinks that I am trying to peek, so I play dead, (wth?). I think that I fooled them, when suddenly the scene changes, and I have a horse and we are riding further up the hill because I am worried the bad guys might show up, but now there are more people with us, like 10 or 15. Suddenly, we get to this dirt road, but there are two bears, so we rush away, and someone tells me to go to the water, so I lead them to a lake, but when everyone gets in the middle, they displace so much water, that it is like 2 feet deep, and we can see the sand everywhere, (instead of being displaced, it really just disappeared). I then get back on my horse and ride quickly into this valley, and see a bunch of men working in this field and there are some hay bales there too. When I ride closer, I see that one of the men is wearing a yellow dress, (allusion to the move Mully I just watched). I ask him something about the yellow dress, and wonder if it is a man, and think it might be a woman. Then I turn around and head back, but someone catches hold of my horse's tail and tries to hang on, but when I get back to the others, (they are in the same place with no bears or bad guys in sight), then he lets go, and I pat the horse and tell him it is alright. Dream ends.

      P.S. I just wanted to say that this is the BY A LOT the MOST THAT I HAVE EVER remembered and for TWO dreams too! Woohoo! Also, I remembered by first one three times, after falling asleep while trying to remember it twice. I slept for a bout 15-20 mins, and still remembered when woke up, not once but thrice!!!

    8. False Replica Reflections

      by , 05-11-2018 at 08:03 AM
      so this is a dream theory that when one perceives there imagery In dreams and reflects lights in the darkness of seeing human and conscious awareness in dream thinking demons angels monsters are all your subconscious creations so when dreaming in nightmare in ld its your mind trying to fathom how you perceive your own after life in a game played when your eyes are closed so when closing your eyes and meeting dream characters and having view and conversation when sleeping being that your mind makes a deep desire to replicate and create images in your own being and waking life seeing images and reflection of the scary monster the most ruthless demons the most exotic angels and having conversation with other human dreamers in a sense of imagery your mind wakes up in a dream a you seeing other images that aren't your image sometimes I'm not sure if someone has just a standing in a mirror point of view of seeing their lives unfold so when your mind contracts the darkness to reflect the light you make up being in the darkness in moments notice while trying to wake for daily activities in your own pre-set mind games and conscious fathoming
    9. Fun with Various Creatures in Autosymbolism 01

      by , 05-10-2018 at 08:36 PM
      Afternoon of May 10, 2018. Thursday.

      Although these dreams are documented and at least partly explained in much more detail elsewhere, here is yet another rundown on several dreams of the same basic template. They are all forms of the same waking process autosymbolism but with different preconscious and emergent consciousness factors as well as different depths of liminal dream control. (Liminal dream control is control of the dream state without awareness of being in the dream state. This is due to understanding autosymbolism and the nature of the dream state by way of the virtuous circle effect.)

      The Skunk (August 21, 1965; age 4). Doorway waking autosymbolism (doorway as autosymbolism for the exit point of the dream state). Preconscious Factor (with emergent consciousness correlation): Ambiguous; unfamiliar girl around my age to an uncertain transformation of her being my mother coming in to wake me. RAS modulation factor: Implied by the curious girl wanting to see what sort of creature is in the center of the dark room. Emergent Consciousness Factor: Sleeping skunk that suddenly wakes up forming question mark imagery with the white part of its body. Brief liminal dream control in non-lucidity. My dream self is puzzled by sudden vague lucidity, briefly uncertain if dreaming or awake, thus the floating question mark.

      Witch Cat (February 14, 1969; age 8). Doorway autosymbolism transmuted into using the doorway to sustain my dream in non-lucidity. Preconscious Factor: The unfamiliar black cat with human-like intelligence and magical ability. The cat’s head seems to float and move up just in front of my face (from where she is in the doorway) in an eerie startling event - which is my dream self using the waking alert factor to deliberately but liminally sustain my dream - thus transmuting what would otherwise have been the RAS modulation factor of this dream. This is liminal awareness of my own eye movement in REM sleep. As such, the emergent consciousness factor (the presence of the cat) is sustained until my dream fades. (Note that this is only one event of many for this dream.) Mainly influenced by “Bewitched”; the episode “Mrs. Stephens, Where Are You?“ where Serena turns Darrin’s mother into a cat, so this dream can be seen as modulating my dream by borrowing this plot in the liminal goal to keep my mother from waking me.

      The Orange Monster (October 30, 1970; age 9). Doorway waking autosymbolism (doorway as autosymbolism for the exit point of the dream state). Preconscious Factor: A hairy orange anthropomorphic monster had knocked on the front door. RAS modulation factor: The threat of a creature of unknown intentions at the door late at night. Emergent Consciousness Factor: The creature turns out to be my brother Jim, who is wearing a Halloween costume. Liminal dream control. Original threat transmuted into a familiar association with my cheerful brother Jim.

      November Second Halloween (in three acts) (November 3, 1973; age 12). Doorway waking autosymbolism (doorway as autosymbolism for the exit point of the dream state). Preconscious Factor: My best friend Toby (who remains unseen). RAS modulation factor: The threat of several dogs on the carport, though not a real threat unless I choose to open the door. Emergent Consciousness Factor: The “dogs” turning out to only be flat images on a large poster (photographic) put over the doorway (by Toby) while a cassette of dogs barking was playing on a table on the carport (liminal space setting). On one level, this can easily be seen as liminally modulating my dream over the original RAS modulation, based on many previous dreams where a dog was a challenge to apex lucidity (in my will to lucidly modulate the dream state, as a dog is autosymbolism for obedience).

      Surprise Aardvark! (September 19, 1981; age 20). Checkout waking autosymbolism (checkout as autosymbolism for the exit point of the dream state). Preconscious Factor: The implied cashier, though not present, though another dream character (unfamiliar female) goes to the checkout to take the role of the preconscious and drops a book behind the counter. RAS modulation factor: Not directly present, only implied by the “missing” cashier so that I do not “check out” of the dream state in a passive manner. Emergent Consciousness Factor: Sleeping aardvark that wakes up when the book is dropped, perceived as myself, starts talking and walks to the left (a liminal attempt at dream state reinduction). Brief liminal dream control in non-lucidity. The setting implies a library, which validates this as consciousness activation autosymbolism, as the non-lucid dream self does not possess viable reading skills (as most of what is read in the non-lucid dream state changes when looking back at it) or reasoning skills.

      Snow Bear (November 17, 1982; age 21). Doorway waking autosymbolism (doorway as autosymbolism for the exit point of the dream state). Preconscious Factor: Polar bear. RAS modulation factor: The threat of the polar bear that I had thus far evaded, including with projected staircase autosymbolism earlier in the dream and even perceiving a setting as upside-down. Emergent Consciousness Factor: Polar bear standing up in doorway when I open it while expecting a mailman delivering a package. Non-lucidity in RAS modulation. The polar bear becoming the preconscious to emergent consciousness factor in this case may be coincidentally based on the typical shift to doorway waking autosymbolism because of environmental noise - evidenced by expecting the mailman autosymbolism, which represents communication between the dream self and the conscious self identity in the waking transition, especially when there is a need to wake and attend to real physical needs or to discern the source of a noise.

      Holographic Toy Tiger (March 14, 2016; age 55). Doorway waking autosymbolism (doorway as autosymbolism for the exit point of the dream state). Preconscious Factor to Emergent Consciousness Correlation: Zsuzsanna. RAS modulation factor: Sublimated (as toy tiger). Emergent Consciousness Factor: Stuffed toy tiger. Sustained liminal dream control in non-lucidity (the fake tiger still licks its lips upon seeing Zsuzsanna in the doorway). My dream self tries to safely intensify the dream state by testing tactility, which is here a dream state indicator (subliminal awareness of being in the dream state) as evidenced by the blanket and the “sleeping” tiger (stuffed toy that begins to have living attributes in the last segment). Liminal modulation of the dream state.

    10. Redefining Dream Control as Unrelated to Lucidity 02

      by , 05-04-2018 at 07:52 PM
      Afternoon of May 4, 2018. Friday.

      This entry is for presenting a more concise understanding of some of the material of part one.

      Lucid dreaming does not equate to having control of the dream state or of a dream. In fact, some dream journalists express terror in dreams when they become lucid, with far less conscious self identity control than in their non-lucid dreams.

      Having control of dreams and even of certain processes of the dream state does not require lucidity. It seems to be a result of understanding RAS mediation from early childhood on, to where the virtuous circle effect becomes inherent in REM sleep.

      Most people have the inability (liminal space blindness) to understand that non-lucid dreams are autosymbolic, not symbolic in the conventional sense, which means that a dream’s autosymbolism, especially the induction and waking process, represents the dream state and waking process itself, concurrently. RAS mediation and RAS modulation sometimes utilize waking life experiences, but they do not “represent” them. If there is no waking life conflict, RAS personification will still have the potential to be rendered as a waking alert persona, even in lucid dreams, especially when environmental noise is present, or when biological factors need to be addressed, such as hunger or the need to use the toilet. There are also literal threads (and of course prescience and other transpersonal factors) that integrate into the dreaming experience.

      I have experienced viable lucidity in dreams continuously since earliest memory with no attempt to bring it about. This means that terms such as “practice” and “skills” have zero meaning for me. Additionally, the concept of “reality checks” or “reality testing” I cannot even comprehend anymore, though I have played around with various ideas I have read since childhood. (Some people actually do this, that is, actually ask themselves if they are dreaming at various points during the day. I am not making that up.) If I know I am awake, why question it? Presumably, this is an attempt to utilize the virtuous circle effect, but all that is required by way of the virtuous circle effect is to viably understand the dream state in the first place and to study what one is dreaming and have a feasible approach to working with dreams. “Reality checks” imply not even understanding that the subconscious self is not the conscious self, or that the preconscious, RAS personification, and transpersonal interconsciousness are not, either.

      The Wake Back to Bed Method of lucid dreaming may work for some people due to the change in ultradian rhythm. In fact, any change will cause changes in dream content, including sleeping in a different orientation and especially sleeping in a different house. Facing toward an open window or open door while sleeping is inherently more likely to augment preconscious mediation (and modulation) as a throwback to the survival factor of RAS modulation. A more vivid dream will likely result, not necessarily lucid, but possibly. (Sleeping in a different location may also trigger nightmares.)

      Now I will look into some dream self modes based on these two entries. The more lucid, the more accurate the subconscious self mirrors and models the conscious self identity to where consciousness is perceived as existing in the dream state (though this is somewhat of a misnomer, as otherwise lucid dreaming does not imply being conscious; only holding the awareness of the conscious self).

      The dream self can be non-lucid and control the dream (by way of subliminal conscious self modulation and the virtuous circle effect of dream study with the understanding of key autosymbolism). The dream self can be non-lucid and have minimal or no control of the dream due to preconscious modulation. The dream self can be lucid yet not only not have control of the dream but be in a conscious self state of terror. (I have personally never experienced this other than when my dream’s modulation was biologically premonitory, but many people have written of it as an apparently automatic process for them.) The dream self can be lucid and have partial control of the dream state. The dream self can be lucid and have full control of the dream state by way of the summoning factor (apex lucidity). The dream self can be in a state of lucid omnipresence or being the dream state itself. This is utilized by manipulating waking process autosymbolism such as doors, staircases, or deliberately jumping from a high point as well as “freezing” the perception of vestibular system autosymbolism (for example, willing the manifestation of bird silhouettes hovering in midair - the “frozen bird shadow” effect I have utilized since early childhood, as well as the obsidian owl statue or the “cobra in the hayloft” events of very early childhood).

      Thank you for reading. This concludes the two-part set “Redefining Dream Control as Unrelated to Lucidity”.

    11. Redefining Dream Control as Unrelated to Lucidity 01

      by , 05-04-2018 at 05:43 PM
      Afternoon of May 4, 2018. Friday.

      Writing an entry such as this is very challenging in a world where almost everything believed and propagated about dreams by the public is fallacious (in respect to my own personal experience since earliest memory). This is mainly due to liminal space blindness, which is the inability of someone to understand the meaning of his or her own dream even in what would otherwise be the hypnopompic disclosure stage, especially when threads of the subliminal conscious self are responsible for much of a non-lucid dream’s content (though this excludes prescience and transpersonal mediation). In this entry, I will attempt to address the widespread misinformation about lucid dreaming at a simple enough level for the average person to grasp. Ultimately, I can only write about what I know to be true and of which I have directly experienced continuously for over fifty years. It is not, and never shall be, a target of debate by the unknowing.

      An unfortunate term I coined years ago has apparently confused a number of people even though I often describe it as clearly as I can each time. “Subliminal lucidity” is an ambiguous term, problematic for most people (especially those who have not had the experience), and needs rewording as “liminal dream control”. This will be a more consistent and technically correct term within the totality of my lifelong work. Realistically however, it is infeasible to describe the dynamics of a condition that people cannot even perceive foundationally, but it does provide a more logical term for the condition. “Subliminal lucidity” is a misnomer, as it was meant to mean control of the dream state in non-lucidity, where the dream self identity has non-lucid ties to the conscious self identify. Of course, dream control itself is not evidence of viable lucidity either, which requires extant current conscious self identity, not just vividness. Some people confuse “vivid” with “lucid”. “Vivid” means the dream seems very realistic, while in contrast, “lucid” means being concurrently aware that it is a dream.

      Ultimately, “subliminal” should not even be used as a descriptive factor of the dream self’s mode, as the subconscious self is already a subliminal persona. A perceived need to use the word to relate the dream self to the dream in contrast to the conscious self identity is probably also a factor of ambiguity that the average person would likely not grasp, as most people seem to misperceive the “I am“ of the dream self as being analogous to the conscious self’s “I am”. I have tried to come up with a better term, but all are taken, for example, supraliminal, as even though it can be used to contrast the conscious self in respect to the dream self, it is only valid while within the dream state, as it otherwise is a reference to being above the threshold of waking life conscious awareness. So far, there does not seem to be a feasible word to describe the synaptic gating of liminal dream control, by which the dream self is non-lucid but the conscious will (not conscious in-dream awareness) is extant.

      I will explain here why this change is forthcoming (with all references to “subliminal lucidity” to be removed and tagged with different keywords depending on the dream). Lucid dreaming does not inherently correlate with controlling a dream. Controlling a dream does not inherently correlate with being lucid. Therefore, the term “subliminal lucidity” is of no use to those who do not have a basic grasp of the difference between being lucid and being in control of the dream state. I have had as many dreams of which I have modulated by way of subliminal threads of my conscious self’s will (not necessarily current, for example in fully controlling a dream without even having any viable memory of the last twenty years of my life), by way of my subconscious self, as I have in various states of lucidity. Here I must still clarify the obvious according to current consensus.

      Being lucid, in consensus terminology, means that the subconscious self is aware that it is in the dream state to where many more viable threads of the current conscious self’s identity, desire, and will are extant than in non-lucidity, but in stark contrast, controlling a dream means influencing features and content, including by the summoning factor (both subliminally and non-subliminally). One does not depend on the other. I emphasize this because many people propagate the mistaken belief that dream control only occurs with being lucid. In fact, a person’s dream self can be lucid without having any control of the dream state at all (for example, lucid nightmares). A person’s dream self can modulate the dream features and content over that of the preconscious factor or RAS precursors without having any awareness of being in the dream state, and typically for me, without even having any memory of what a dream is. A full understanding of this is required for coherent thinking about dreams in general.

      The falsehood of lucidity equating control must be dissolved for one to develop a full understanding of the dream state. Dream control in non-lucidity has been continuous for me since early childhood and over time, has developed by way of the virtuous circle effect. Additionally, the conscious self identity’s expectation is a major part of a dream’s autosymbolism, of which I have understood the meanings of for over fifty years. This is important because there are a number of people, including a number of religious zealots, who believe that a dream can never be controlled or influenced at all even in lucidity. What they express provides proof that they have zero understanding of either lucidity, dream control, or even hold a basic understanding of dreams. Neither the truth nor even a thread of truth is even visible to them. All they could do is deny what they could not even comprehend (liminal space blindness).

      In part two, I will try to simplify the information in this entry with a more concise approach of certain concepts and a list of possible dream self modes, of which are otherwise inherently transient through the different stages of sleeping and dreaming.

    12. Redefining My Online Dream Journal part 2

      by , 05-02-2018 at 11:02 AM
      Afternoon of May 2, 2018. Wednesday.

      Keywords Definition Falling Reinduction and Vivification: If there are enough threads of dream state awareness by way of my (precursory) emergent consciousness factor, I will deliberately create and jump from a high location to vivify and sustain my dream, or in some cases jump from a window of a very high building to fly and swoop with wonderful sensations. This is inclusive of when RAS personification is in pursuit of my dream self. It does not always work in the attempt to evade it in liminal space, as waking and achieving viable consciousness is a neurobiological necessity. This is also true for when the preconscious insists on knowing the source of a real environmental noise even when it is not problematic or threatening, or when the edge of an ultradian rhythm (or in some cases, an infradian rhythm) dominates the dream’s direction and outcome.

      Keywords Definition Lucid Auto-Scripting: Lucid auto-scripting is when knowledge of the autosymbolism of the dream state is viably known and thus can be used to re-initiate and re-render the dream just by holding the phrase or thought that creates it. Personal autosymbolism was learned from early childhood on, when I made recordings of my voice to see what dream imagery was triggered. It is very easy to do. Unfortunately, most people completely lack the desire to do this and prefer to remain without this knowledge (for whatever reason) and follow the path to superstition and passivity.

      Keywords Definition Bed Dream State Indicator: Beds are extremely common in my dreams (as well as Zsuzsanna’s), including beds in unusual locations, which sometimes trigger lucidity. It should be no challenge to understand why. A dream state indicator is simply a subliminal awareness of being asleep (not viable lucidity, but the real nature of the physical body and the real environment vaguely entering the dream state), though it depends on the ultradian rhythm, on how and when it is rendered.

      Keywords Definition Undressed Dream State Indicator: Being undressed in a dream is simply a result of being undressed while sleeping (though this does not mean you will not have the dream if you wear clothes to bed, as it is also augmented by the virtuous circle effect - that is, by habit), though this is typically incidental subliminal awareness. Since early childhood, I recognized this as a dream state indicator, and it has always triggered lucidity of one level or another. I could not care less if I am undressed in public in a dream, though I do walk around with a sheet around me in some cases, fly using the sheet as a cloak, and make love in the middle of a public library without caring what dream characters are watching. Wearing a bed sheet at times is not modesty, it is an absentminded carryover from not wanting to be scratched or otherwise affected by wayward dream features such as tree branches. (For example, in landing on a tin roof to take a break from flying, I sometimes have concern about protruding nails or sharp stones and such even though I know it is not a real object. This is based on how realistic some features are.)

      Keywords Definition Positive Coalescence Waking Autosymbolism: The first time I experienced this more vividly, I experienced an extremely pleasant abdominal jolt and extraordinary bliss, which means my first “adult” perception occurred in the dream state when I was only eight years old, though I did not know at the time what it actually was. This is achieved by hugging the emergent consciousness factor rather than avoiding it, though do not confuse attempting to catch or hug the personified unconscious in the last segment of a dream with the preconscious mediation. Why? Because the same person can be rendered as either, as I “unfortunately” learned very early in my dream studies.

      Keywords Definition Negative Coalescence Waking Autosymbolism: Examples are seeing someone being swallowed by a snake, or the dream self being swallowed (though seeing someone else being swallowed has proven to trigger amusement in the majority of my dreams, especially when I am consciously aware of the autosymbolism as it is occurring). There are different reasons for this type of autosymbolism including immune system associations - as white blood cells will attack, swallow, and digest an invader. Consider this very carefully and understand how the fragmented non-lucid dream self with its false memories is not the conscious self identity. The immune system autosymbolism has come into very vivid play a few times in my life (where I have at least two dreams of this type documented and at least partly explained online). Each time, it was during the first stage of a flu. So when the dream self is attacked or pursued (and especially swallowed), remember that the dream self is only a distorted model of the conscious self, often not even close to representing the conscious self identity in non-lucidity. This is where a lot of intrusive RAS modulation comes into play, so do not take it personally.

      Keywords Definition Liminal Space Enigma Autosymbolism: This no longer occurs in the same way for me as it did throughout childhood, where it was sustained to such an extent, I felt temporarily bilocated in the dream and in my real physical body (that is, enigmatic simultaneous or “doubled” perception) until fully awake. Features that are autosymbolism for this should not be mistaken for conscious self thought processes, but can occur because of viable threads of the conscious self being extant. It includes jigsaw puzzle pieces (such as a floor motif looking like a jigsaw puzzle pattern), question marks floating over a dream character’s head, detective personas (typically as the preconscious personification), anything related to solving a mystery, and so on, even a haunted house.

    13. Redefining My Online Dream Journal part 1

      by , 05-02-2018 at 11:02 AM
      Afternoon of May 2, 2018. Wednesday.

      I am creating a new pathway through my online dream journal with a more consistent keywords foundation. These keywords, I will add to older entries over time as I move on to establish a foundation of 10,000 entries on my main site and on to many more when I have the time. Trying to develop conciseness and clarity to a point where the average person can grasp what I write in my online journal has proven infeasible, mainly due to the popular myth of “interpretation” (and the total lack of public understanding of what the dream state is), and I now cringe whenever I see the word “interpretation”. The new keywords forms, I will present here in random order as I look over work from early childhood to the present. Not much has changed other than different wording in some cases. “Keywords Definition” will precede each term due to the nature of the search function on two sites as well as for my digitally stored data. Ultimately, this will allow me to remove a lot of redundant material from entries as well. Thank you very much for your time, patience, and consideration.

      Keywords Definition Water Induction Autosymbolism: Water is very common autosymbolism (at least once per sleep cycle) for entry into the dream state and it represents the dynamics of sleep in real time. It evolved primarily from the prenatal memory of swimming in the waters of the womb prior to birth into the external world, thus it is a metaphor for returning to that essence of existence in light unconsciousness in REM sleep. Additionally, as water represents entering sleep and the depth and sustained dynamics of sleep, it is a type of circadian rhythms factor. Water has nothing to do with emotions, as the dreamer experiences emotions directly while in the dream state. There would be no reason to symbolize them in this way (though that is moot, as dreams are autosymbolic, not symbolic in the popular but false sense).

      Keywords Definition Water Lowering Waking Autosymbolism: Water lowering waking autosymbolism is a form of circadian rhythm correlation (as well as linking to ultradian rhythm correlation). It represents the subliminal anticipation of the cessation of the dream state. It has nothing to do with waking life or the conscious self identity other than the biological factor. It is an infantile analogy to having left the waters of the womb as analogous to waking but has a number of other associations, primarily the cessation of the more discernible and present internal awareness of the brain being about 73% water.

      Keywords Definition Water Vivification: Water vivification refers to when water splashing on the dream self or the dream self being in water, especially cool water, intensifies and sustains the dream state (due to water being autosymbolism for sleep). From herein, I will use the term solely in place of “water reinduction autosymbolism”.

      Keywords Definition RAS Mediation: Reticular activating system mediation is a general term for the mainly non-confrontational correlation of dream self identity with conscious self identity, as the main purpose of a non-lucid dream is to correlate the false dream self identity with the valid conscious self identity of waking life during the waking transition. This occurs with various forms of RAS mediation by way of the preconscious, as the outcome of a dream is rendered by way of the preconscious, not the unconscious or so-called subconscious, as otherwise vivid dreams would occur in deeper sleep, not REM sleep. (The dream self is the subconscious personified.)

      Keywords Definition RAS Modulation: This term is used when the preconscious, including any personification of the preconscious, is confrontational to the dream self for various reasons, an example being the need to wake and discern the source of real environmental noise. Google search “reticular activating system modulation in sleep”, without quotes, for more information.

      Keywords Definition Vestibular System Correlation: Vestibular System Correlation has been fully explained in a number of other entries. Basically, it is autosymbolism rendered from the fact that the subconscious self does not have viable awareness of the physical body while in REM sleep. This causes everything from falling dreams to associations with airplanes, birds, and flying unaided. It also renders features such as tornadoes and helicopters when sleep has been deeper up to that point. I have read that some lucid dreamers (only those who are not natural lucid dreamers as I am) utilize a “spinning” technique (with mixed results) to vivify and sustain the dream state. Google search “lucid dreaming spinning”, without quotes, for more information.

      Keywords Definition Personified Preconscious: This dream character represents the correlation factor of dream self back to conscious self identity. It may be aggressive to create enough emotion to initiate consciousness, though this depends on specific ultradian rhythm factors. In my dreams, it is typically either a celebrity or an unknown unfamiliar character. This is because neither a well-known celebrity or an unfamiliar character has connections to the conscious self identity in waking life. However, in stark contrast, the preconscious may be modeled after people known to the dreamer to model conflict to trigger consciousness realization. This is rare for me, though. Dreams do not “represent” real life in that way, but borrow from real life to model certain associations for attaining consciousness, especially that which seems invasive (a home invader scenario being quite common in my non-lucid dreams at the end of an ultradian cycle only).

      Keywords Definition Personified Unconscious: The unconscious personification is for sustaining the dream state or mediating ultradian rhythms. There would be no sense in correlating it with the conscious self identity, especially as the subconscious self (dream self) has no viable link to either the unconscious or the conscious self (contrary to popular belief) other than with minimal threads in non-lucidity - and its main purpose is to induce sleep, not bring about wakefulness as the preconscious does.

    14. Blue Opossum Explains Vestibular System Correlation

      by , 04-30-2018 at 06:25 PM
      Afternoon of April 30, 2018. Monday.

      This entry is required reading for anyone who wants to develop a better understanding of dreams and the various causes of dream content and inherent meanings.

      In this entry, I will be writing more about the nature of vestibular system correlation. This is my most common form of autosymbolism throughout the tens of thousands of dreams I have studied and decoded for over fifty years since early childhood. It can occur in a few different dreams per sleep cycle. Ultimately, it is my main recurring factor of dream state transition, even in lucid dreams, and is augmented in some auto-scripted dreams, as deliberately auto-scripted dreams have unavoidable though incidental stark contrasts with circadian rhythms dynamics, a main factor of sleeping and dreaming.

      Since childhood (around age nine), I have tried to determine causes of different types of vestibular system correlation, which, while in a dream, ranges from subliminal to intrusive; for example, dreams of falling and even a dream where an intruder tried to force me to grow a bird of prey’s talon from my right thumb. By way of RAS mediation, a simulacrum of vestibular system correlation is created in one of several different ways, including specialized preconscious personification or even features such as a bird as a “teacher” or a “villain” depending on the concurrent dynamics of the particular state (including the subliminal willingness to wake or continue sleeping). For example, in the most vivid dream I have ever had, a resplendent quetzal flew down to become the partner of an earthbound bantam silver sebright rooster (the one I had as a pet in childhood but long dead in reality). RAS personification may be “friendly” or “invasive” depending on the status of the dream self’s attention, which may not be related to waking life or the conscious self identity or experience at all, but the progression of the waking stage and the status of current dream self awareness and depth.

      Vestibular system correlation comes in many different forms. In some cases, it depends on sleeping position. Sleeping position has a major influence on both depth of sleep and the nature of the dream state and the types of dreams that result. Waking life vestibular system ambiguity results in dizziness, although in dreams this is more about subliminal anticipation of the waking process, the main factor of a non-lucid dream’s autosymbolism.

      The processes relating to vestibular system correlation comes from the dream self’s virtual vestibular system being separate from the real vestibular system of the physical body in REM sleep. To put it simpler, the subconscious self does not have a viable awareness of the real physical body while sleeping. This is what causes the sensations of flying, falling, rising, and movement in general, which of course, is an illusion. (On a side note, dizziness in waking life is of course an illusion as the room is not literally spinning around you as you are discerning it as such.)

      The description of REM sleep muscle atonia by Jouvet and Michel (1959) helped to presage the idea that dreaming was constituted by virtual perception and movement. Real (waking) perception and movement were actively blocked, while the brain was forced to generate a virtual simulacrum of waking consciousness. (“Virtual reality and consciousness inference in dreaming”, Front Psychol. 2014; 5: 1133.) This does not mean that dream state indicators (such as the appearance of a bed or being undressed) or other subliminal awareness of being asleep does not come into play as a thread in a dream’s hodgepodge.

      Vestibular system ambiguity can flow from passive to dominant (dream self is moving toward consciousness) or from dominant to passive (dream self is slipping back into sleep). It does not make any sense to “interpret” autosymbolic biological factors, but this is what many people do. It is important to understand that dreams, contrary to popular belief, do not symbolically “represent” waking life, but are meant to occasionally borrow waking life factors to initiate the return to consciousness.

      In the case of the specific factor discussed in this entry, it is not possible to consciously control vestibular system ambiguity in the dream state, lucid or not, though an aspect of it can be held, for example, in flying dreams (both lucid and non-lucid) where the real vestibular perception of the physical body does not dominate the liminal state or space. Some people seem to believe that falling dreams are a result of waking life anxiety. I have never seen any personal evidence of this. The vividness of falling dreams increases exponentially after I have had a lot more exercise, especially with more time spent walking. Such a dream is also more likely if I had been in an elevator that day, and I have no anxiety regarding elevators in waking life. My most vivid falling dream occurred during the night after experiencing the log flume ride at Busch Gardens earlier that day.

      Falling dreams (in addition to the talon dream mentioned above) are also sometimes caused by environmental noise. Even in waking life, high levels of noise may stimulate the vestibular system and thereby cause disturbances in the balancing mechanism. Babies apparently experience falling dreams by way of the Moro reflex, which I have often seen in my own children when they were babies.

      Understanding the nature of vestibular system correlation and dream state and waking process autosymbolism in general will help you to easily dismiss the nonsensical psychobabble and superstition concerning dreams of which is virtually everywhere, but of which is a great disservice to present day society (at least for people who have never held the desire of looking into the causes of their own dreams).

      One of the most important aspects to understand about dreams is, just as with sequences of waking life thoughts, a dream is not just one event. Even though I typify dreams based on their main factor, there are always threads of other processes integrating into the dream state, again, just as with waking life thoughts. This is why saying that a dream relates to one thing makes no sense - any more than claiming every singular thought in a period of twenty minutes is “about” the same thing. Dreams are a result of many different types of threads coming together in a synthesized composite. Until that is understood, there is no hope of discerning the nature of the dream state.

      On a side note, some people apparently do not dream of flying very often or at all, when the majority of my dreams have this potential. I effortlessly take to the sky as perceiving it in the same way as I do walking in waking life in both lucidity and non-lucidity. The highest level of apex lucidity however, does not have this potential, as the discernment of physicality is too augmented, complete with the extremely realistic feeling of weight, movement, and momentum (impetus).

      On a final note, I should point out that falling can also serve as induction into a more vivid dream, though this is rare for me (though I prefer creating and using a difficult door for an astounding increase in vividness). Some people do not seem to believe this because of the ludicrous myth about dying in a dream if you do not wake up before your fall completes. It is one of many nonsensical myths propagated by people with virtually no dreaming experience.

    15. That look of eyes five inches a part

      by , 04-30-2018 at 06:51 AM
      I found myself in a huge convention center, it seemed. And to my surprise, the place sort of circled around a large domain where the space needle was being constructed, though it was black. I met this woman, and everyone presumed she had an attitude about her that made her cold, unapproachable, and seemingly ill-tempered. I chose to ignore these elements and sat down with her at a picnic table, still inside this convention center. This woman's disposition was an absolute amalgamation of several personas of multiple strippers.

      I'm so stupidly foggy as to other dream aspects, but I was at one point conversing with my mother about something lifelike.

      Additionally, my friend Matt was at my house, and he felt the need to watch television on our big screen downstairs. He gathered together a jumbled mess of extension cords, and sought the assistance of my father to garner a means to watch his program. When i met him at the foot of the stairs, I asked why he needed to do this, and he responded with "I didn't want you to give me that look of eyes five inches apart!"
