    I can't really keep up with my DJ, which is sort of a good thing I guess?
    I've stopped journaling non-lucids entirely and I'm skipping unimportant details in my lucids.
    For example I skip details such as becoming lucid or doing mental stabilization etc.

    I'm pretty sure this is the longest dream I've ever had.
    It definitely felt "deep", which is how Yuya describes it, which is oddly enough a term WakingNomad uses as well.
    It feels very rewarding to have such a dream after spending dream time "training" to achieve this.



    Day 1: Barfight - Earth from Space

    ... It takes longer than usual to locate Yuya's aura.
    Where... what the hell?
    Is that a bar?
    I also vaguely feel a demonic presence near her.

    I decide not to teleport straight to her, but instead teleport to outside of the bar.
    I'm not really sure what's going on and I don't want to cause a scene.



    I end up in front of what appears to be a bar from an old western.
    It's on top of a cliff with nothing but desert surrounding it.
    The demonic presence is more clear now.
    There's multiple instances, but they all seem weak.
    I decide to mask my own aura after I notice that Yuya is masking hers.
    That's probably why I had trouble locating her.

    I enter the bar, acting as if I belong here.
    I spot Yuya sitting at the bar. She's wearing a brown coat?
    Probably trying to look inconspicuous or something. (Or a firefly reference you idiot)
    I on the other hand am wearing my typical attire.
    But it doesn't matter. If you mask your aura people barely notice you unless you talk to them direcly.
    And even then they usually don't notice any oddities and forget you quickly.
    This works only on weaker minds of course, who don't fully use their 6th sense.

    I sit down next to Yuya and order a beer.
    A passively scan the surrounding aura's.
    Yep, just as I thought, they're all kind of weak. And they are all of demonic nature?
    They are all oddly similar, even though the creatures are of different species.
    Most are humanoid though.
    They must belong together in some way.

    The beer is mediocre. It's lukewarm. Beh.

    "So... What's going on?"
    "Hm..."
    She grins.
    I hear someone drop a glass in the background and it shatters.
    Then it happens again in another corner of the room.
    Yuya's expression reveals that she's responsible for this.
    She's controlling the water molecules in the drinks to throw them off the table.
    It will take these people some time to figure out what's going on.
    The bartender will probably notice first, he has the strongest aura.
    I can already see it in his eyes that he has noticed that something is wrong.
    So... Yuya appears to be starting a barfight.
    Ha, this is kind of fun.
    Since I've started time dilation training we've deliberately gotten ourselves into a lot of trouble.
    Fully emerging myself into the dream allows me to stay for really long times.
    I've managed to stay many hours a few times in a row now.
    The only thing I haven't managed yet is to go to sleep without waking up.

    The bartender looks straight into Yuya's eyes.
    Even if he doesn't notice her aura, he'll be able to tell by her eyes that she's not a demon and that she doesn't belong here.

    "What? Who are you?"
    "*smile* Trouble!"

    The bartender then proceeds to lift up a double barreled shotgun from under the bar and aims it at Yuya's chest.
    I look at Yuya.

    "Have a safe trip."

    The shotgun blast propels her off her chair into the back off the room and she crashes into one of the tables.
    A fight breaks loose.
    This is starting to become very comical.
    Yuya won't need any help. I do kinda want to get involved in the fight though.
    But... priorities!
    I still have that shitty beer taste in my mouth.
    Fortunately I spot a bottle of whiskey.
    The bottle is kind of dirty.
    I grab it, clearly annoying the gentlemen whom it belongs to.
    I take a few big sips directly from the bottle.

    "HEY!"
    "Wat?"

    I unleash a rather colossal burp, and to my surprise I spit quite a bit of fire in the process. Oops.

    "Hey Yuya, I think I just figured out where that whole 'dragons spit fire' thing comes from."
    "Congratu fucking lations."

    She sounds rather occupied defending herself.
    They're attacking her with wooden chairs, how cute.
    Guy next to me I stole the whiskey bottle from has obviously figured out that I'm not supposed to be here.
    He decides to run away... and there I was hoping to throw him across the room.

    My fine bottle of whiskey is shattered by some dude crashing into me.

    "Yuya... did you just throw this guy at me?"
    "Oops?"

    I'll better return him.
    I pick the guy up and throw him back at Yuya.
    It's funny how that works. It feels like throwing a tennis ball.
    I have only fought properly strong opponents lately, I completely forgot how ridiculous my power is compared to normal beings.
    Well, not normal. They are actually halfway decent demons.
    But with mine or Yuya's power it really doesn't make a difference.

    I enter the fight and start throwing more people around.
    This is kinda fun. I like smashing the furniture into pieces.
    Some of them shoot at me with revolvers. This is adorable.
    Do they really think they stand a chance?
    Well, they actually might.
    My aura is probably so intense and overwhelming for them that they can't feel it at all.

    Mid-fight I organize myself a new bottle of whiskey, because I still have some of that atrocious taste in my mouth.
    This one is actually pretty good.
    Most people start running away after they realize that we're completely out of their league.
    Yuya sits down next to me on the only table that is still intact and I share the bottle with her.

    "So. I take it 'start a barfight' is off the list then?"
    "Haha. I think this makes me a bad person."
    "Heh. I wonder what the gods would have thought of this back in the days."
    "Oh boy, I would have been in so much trouble."

    Huh? "The gods?"
    Yuya used to be the goddess of water... uuuuuh.
    There were more gods obviously, but I can't remember.
    I wonder if they're still around.

    A slightly stronger aura emerges from the distance.
    Shortly after what appears to be the town sheriff enters the room pointing a rifle at us.

    "Yeah, good luck with that."
    "Haha."

    That poor guy. He actually catches a glimpse of our true strength.
    He must be terrified. I feel kinda bad now.

    "Dude, don't worry, we'll leave."
    "Okay..."
    "Yeah... we really should go..."

    We get up and Yuya tosses a coin at the sheriff.
    I draw my phoenix wings to teleport us out but I'm not really sure where to go.
    Oh! I have an idea!
    I grab Yuya's hand.

    "I'll show you something interesting."
    "Oh?"

    I want to show her Earth from the ISS.
    It actually takes me a few seconds to find it within all the crap that is in orbit around our planet.
    And something is off, I can't locate any auras within it.
    The port feels different. It feels like the first port I make when I become lucid, not like the kind of port I make to change locations later.
    Am I bringing us back into my private dreams?

    The first thing I notice when we emerge is that it is rather unpleasant being in space.
    My body instinctively reinforces a layer of energy around itself to protect me from the cold, vacuum and radiation.
    We float a few meters and sit on the ISS.



    This is exactly what I wanted to show Yuya.
    Earth is such a beautiful planet. And only a handful of astronauts get to see it at a time.

    "Wow!"

    It's difficult to surprise Yuya like this.
    She's seen so many wonderful things in her life.
    But it seems I have found one that is worthy to be added to that list.

    "She's such a beauty."
    "Yeah... I wonder if I'll ever get to see her like this in my life."
    "But... surely you will? You have had the technology to go to space for many years?"
    "Exactly!"
    "Oh... I don't really understand why this isn't moving forward."
    "*sigh* There's not enough funding because the people in power don't care about it?"
    "How can you not care about it? It's fucking space!"
    "Yeah it's really sad. They argue that we should first solve our problems down on earth instead of bringing them with us to space."
    "That is the most idiotic argument I have ever heard."
    "Yep. And many people hear that and agree with it because they don't know any better."
    "They don't see how much good has come from space exploration."
    "It's the only thing that has managed to unite us as a species, which is kind of sad actually."

    Well shit, I wanted to show Yuya something really cool and beautiful, and now I find myself rambling about the state of our space program.

    "But there's hope! Private companies are getting involved who want to get commercial programs started."
    "Ah!"
    "So... I'm still confused about this."
    "Huh?"
    "Are we in your world or in my dream space right now?"
    "... How can you not know this?"
    "I don't know..."
    "We're in your dream space or bubble or whatever you want to call it of course."
    "Right. Because the ISS doesn't exist in your world."
    "Right."
    "But Earth does?"
    "Yes, but it's another Earth. It's another dimension entirely."
    "And the Moon"
    "Yeah."
    "The green Moon"
    "Ha. Wasn't that one of you dreamers who did that?"
    "WakingNomad"
    "Heh. He sounds like an interesting fellow."

    I spot someone in the Cupola module gazing at Earth as well.


    If this were the real world and she saw 2 guys sitting in outer space she'd probably have a heart attack.
    I start to feel tired. Took me a long time to get lucid, then we had a barfight and now I'm resisting the dangers of outer space.

    "Yeah, we should go to bed, I haven't slept in 22 hours."
    "Does Teraluna have a 24 hour cycle as well?"
    "No, it's about 28 hours."

    I summon my phoenix wings and target Teraluna.

    "Can you really not feel it?"
    "Hmm?"
    "The difference between the universes, or planes or whatever. Like, when you target Teraluna, can you not feel how it isn't a location created by your own mind?"
    "Uh. I guess... I always assumed that anything I target with the wings must be in your world."
    "Huh, that's really weird. You dreamers really seem to have a hard time perceiving these kind of things."

    We teleport to Teraluna.
    It's nighttime. We both walk under one of the many small waterfalls within Yuya's place before getting to bed.
    This is how you shower on Teraluna. There is something cleansing about these things.
    It's much more practical than using soap, and you can also dry yourself up with some quick magic tricks.
    I simply boil the remaining water on my skin away.
    We need this stuff in waking life. And also magic.
    Everything is better with magic.

    We get into bed.
    I love this ridiculously large bed.
    It got these satin-like bed sheets that are kind of cold and feel super refreshing.
    They also smell really nice.
    And the mattress is sooo soft.
    I quickly feel rather dizzy and my vision becomes all fuzzy.
    I don't have time to think about the issues I've been having with sleeping dreams, which might be a good thing though.
    I fall asleep. I clearly feel my dream body turning off.
    My eyes close automatically, but my vision remains very active.
    I see colorful plasma clouds and a lot of pink noise.

    I feel cold wind on my skin as images are coming into existence.
    They're memory flashes mixed with some really odd things I do not know.
    The word "Ravenclaw" pops into my head.
    Then I see tribal dragons and ravens flying around...



    Day 2: Exploring Childhood Dreams

    ... Mmmh. I want to sleep some more.
    I nest myself deeper into the bedsheets without any intention of getting up.

    "Uuuh, we should really get up."
    "I don't wanna."
    "Dude."

    She starts poking me relentlessly until I get our of bed.
    Everything is a bit of a blur.

    We have breakfast when it finally strikes me.
    I finally managed to sleep in a dream!
    Holy shit!
    And it feels quite odd.
    The "omgthisisamazing imsuperexcited" train of thought is certainly there but I don't feel it?
    That tension in your body you feel when you get extremely excited which can cause you to wake up?
    It's not there. It doesn't make it feel any less of an achievement, but I perceive it as rather odd that the sensation is missing.
    This is a good thing though I suppose.

    Yuya's expression changes to a rather intriguing smile.

    "Hyu... do you think you are ready for me to show you something about your past?"

    She's excited.

    "Yes. Of course! What do you want to show me?"

    Part of me hopes that it might be about how we've met, but I know that's not going to happen anytime soon.

    "I need you to close your eyes."

    Sure. I just slept without waking up like a boss, shouldn't be a problem to close my eyes.
    ... sleeping without waking up. One of those things that only makes sense in a dream.
    I hear Yuya approaching and she sits down on my lap.
    She seems to look into my closed eyes.
    I can feel her thoughts entering my head.
    They feel so different from my own.

    I can see a scene materializing. Just like when you WILD. I get incoherent flashes first, and then everything stabilizes.

    "Open your eyes."

    I open them and see both her and the scene from my imagination.
    She's drawn into my eyes and after a moment of heavy confusion we find ourselves in this new place.
    I look around. It appears that we're on some sort of rather huge space station.



    We're standing on the outer hull. There's gravity and an atmosphere, and temperatures appear to be normal.
    There must be some kind of forcefield surrounding the station that prevents the atmosphere from escaping.

    And then I suddenly get chills.
    Holy shit!
    I know this place!

    "This is..."
    "Oh my god... this is..."
    "Fuck, I can't remember the name... it's... there's the motorcycle races and colony and mining and..."

    Ugh, too much information at once.

    "Take it easy. You have all the time you need."
    "This is from my dreams. These were like my first consistent lucid dreams."
    "Except I didn't know what lucid dreams were..."
    "Wow, I must have been like... not even in my teens yet."

    My memories are vague, but I start to recall the global setting.
    This is a slave colony built around a big asteroid.
    The slaves are forced to harvest it, which is a rather difficult task.
    There were these bunk rooms were you live with 20ish other people.
    Then every day you get up, go mine.
    If you find valuable minerals you can trade them for food.
    I was one of these slaves.
    During some event I escaped the system and was able to enter the automated regions of the station,
    where there are no cameras.
    I Mcgyvered myself a small sleeping compartment in between some plasma conduits.
    Nobody dares to get close to them, so I was safe there.
    I got my water from the automated water recycling system and traded it and some things I've built for food with people in similar situations than myself.

    And then there were the motorcycle races.
    Holy shit those were amazing... and scary... and... batshit insane!
    There were different racing classes, much like in a video game.
    Starts out at D, then goes up to C, B, A and finally S.

    D is comparable to superbikes in waking life.
    Then with C class you get electric downforce systems.
    They produce downforce without creating drag. Something with artificial gravity or magnets, I can't remember.
    But you get the idea. You have ludicrous grip with these modules, so you're able to put down
    a lot more power, break much harder and later, and corner at multiple g's.

    The races were held on the outer hull of the station. The outside got pressurizes for maintenance on a regular basis,
    just like it is now, so you can walk around and race motorcycle outside.
    The higher classes had actual race tracks that surrounded the whole station, and they were insanely dangerous.
    The station owners obviously knew about this and about all of the slaves that had escaped to the automated regions, but they didn't care.
    They probably made a ton of money with the races, so why would they?

    Races were properly dangerous as I already mentioned.
    Not only do the motorcycles go way too fast, but all of them are tinkered together.
    When you win races you get money, which is useless except for buying new parts.
    They make you faster, you get into higher classes, win more money etc.
    You're pushing most of the components way past their limit once you get into the higher classes.
    It's perfectly normal for one or two bikes to blow up during a race and people dying because their brakes failed or they cornered a split second too late.

    You can get to A class on the parts you can buy, but winning A races or getting into S requires you to build your own custom stuff.
    I had a few useful contacts that could forge things for me if I gave them blueprints, but obviously you can't test anything.
    You have an idea, you build it, install it and hope you'll somehow survive the next race.

    "This was pretty sick. And by that I don't mean awesome... well, maybe a little."
    "But... this was a bit messed up though. How did I come up with that?"

    "Eh, video games might have played a role."
    "Maybe..."

    We walk around and I remember most locations.
    The world is frozen though. It's like walking through a memory snapshot.
    I can move things, but nothing will act on its own and all characters are frozen in time.
    Most of them have blurry faces, which I assume is because I don't remember how they looked.

    I find a small hangar which I shared with another racer. Both of our bikes should be in there.
    I open the hangar using a hidden button on the outside.
    And sure enough, both bikes are there.
    The other racer is also there, and I can actually see his face.
    He played a major role in those dreams. He was also the one who got me my first bike.


    (Imagine this, except longer, twice as fat, and an engine that barely fits)

    I sit on my old bike and turn on the systems.
    Ecu, ignition, fuel 1, fuel 2...
    Xgc? No idea what that was but better turn it on.
    Throttle to 2% and a strong kick to the starter.

    I nearly shit my pants as the engine comes to life.
    I remembered it as pretty brutal, but mother of god...
    I immediately let go of the throttle.
    The revs drop to about ~4,5k where the engine begins to idle very roughly.
    It idles at 4500rpm? holy shit!
    Further inspection reveals that the rev indicator goes all the way up to 20k.
    Redline starts at 14.000 but I remember reving it to over 17.000 on a regular basis.
    The cooling systems can take it just barely.

    I rev the engine gently and it immediately shoots up high into the rev range.
    These things don't really have flywheels. The clutch is pretty much an on/off switch.
    You use it once to get going and from there on you shift sequentially.
    Investigating the engine, the exhaust manifolds indicate a V10 engine.
    But then I spot another set coming from below. An X20?
    The exhaust manifolds feed into two massive turbochargers that finally lead to 4 straight exhausts.
    Even though the engine is idling, the pipes are glowing all the way back.
    The bike is huge, but the engine barely fits.

    I wonder how much power this has.
    I remember getting it up past 700km/h on a straight runway, and just over 900 on a few suicidal runways that had
    track parts that pointed straight down for a few kilometers.
    At these speeds, even if you hide your face behind the tiny windshield, you simply cannot breathe.
    You just hold it in until the next corner, and hope you don't black out during breaking.
    I turn the engine off... now is not the time to race it. I'll definitely come back though.

    I investigate the rest of the station with Yuya and try to remember things.
    We talk about the only guy I can remember mostly.
    I explain to Yuya what he did, how he got me my first bike and taught me how to upgrade it etc.
    During that I realize that he was a dream guide.
    I ask Yuya if he's Faye without thinking, which she laughs at.
    Obviously he wasn't.

    "So, what was the reason for racing? I mean sure, it's exciting, but also quite suicidal."
    "Yeah... there was a rumor that when you win the S cup you can buy your freedom."
    "They'll give you your identity back and get you to the next tradehub with some money."
    "Ah. That makes sense."
    "Yeah... it was a scam though. Only people with superhuman capabilities could get into S class and actually win."
    "Obviously such a person would win nearly all races once he becomes skilled enough."
    "That is a problem for the station owners because if the same person wins every time it becomes boring and they make less money."
    "So once every S cup, they sell 'freedom' to the best guy. It's a good excuse for making someone disappear really."
    "It gives all the racers a reason to race and keeps the crowd entertained. In the end they just kill you though."

    But she already knew that, she asked to help me remember.
    Fuck, this whole setting was dark.
    Young me had some messed up dreams.

    After spending half a day exploring old dreams we get back to Teraluna, where we proceed to drink and smoke what resembles weed.
    It tastes different though, but it does a rather good job at getting you high.

    We go to bed where I snuggle with Yuya.
    Before falling asleep I make a rather overwhelming discovery.
    Except it's... well it's not.

    I'm holding Yuya in my arms as we fall asleep and I can feel her chest expanding as she breathes.
    I can even feel her heartbeat.
    Now, this is obviously perfectly normal, but for some reason I cannot help thinking:
    "She is real!" as if this was some kind of proof of her existence.
    This makes me think of waking life for the first time in many hours.
    I question the reasoning I make in waking life but know that there's nothing I can do about it.
    I think differently here.

    I fall asleep and get pretty interesting visuals.
    It's mostly very vividly colored plasma clouds and some geometric shapes.
    It looks really interesting and makes me feel blissful.



    Day 3: Yuya

    I can't remember waking up, but I'm still on Teraluna.
    It's afternoon and I'm coloring Yuya's back with some kind of dragon like tribal patterns.



    There's a dance this evening which is why I'm doing this.
    I have to be careful not to color over the tiny things living in her back, and on all the other citizens of Teraluna.
    They grow up there using the body heat and Teralunas atmosphere.
    If you leave they hide in a deeper layer of your skin.
    When they have matured they fly away and new ones settle in in their place.
    They're pretty cool because they glow in the dark.

    I'm not really drawing these things myself. I just let dragonic energy slowly flow into some sort of pen and everything else just happens.
    My hand moves on its own. I couldn't draw like that.
    Then it suddenly strikes me.
    Yuya is naked.
    Well... yeah. Obviously duh. How else could I paint her entire back?

    I gently kiss her on her neck.
    ...
    What am I doing?
    I wouldn't have dared to do that not too long ago.
    I used to feel so shy around her, but that's gone completely.
    She enjoys it, so I kiss her again, which starts a series of events leading to her bedroom.
    It's very different from a recent dream with the hibiscus girl.
    It probably helps that I didn't turn into a fucking animal, which still weirds me out thinking back.
    I'm more like myself. The whole experience is very blissful, but even more powerful in emotions.
    It's very difficult to explain. Everything is just right. I'm at peace...

    We're at the party were we dance to music that bears a strong resemblance to vocal trance.
    Liv is there as well, and it takes us half an eternity to motivate her to join us on the dance floor.
    My vision becomes messed up because the scene is very dark, but lights are flashing everywhere.


    I also start seeing the music at some point. Deep tones warp the entire field of vision whereas
    high tones influence the colors I'm seeing.
    At some point I loose it and wake up.


    I'm properly confused for one or two seconds, thinking I woke up in a wrong bed and that I must have a false awakening.
    Logic kicks in quickly though and everything is perfectly clear.
    I close my eyes again and go through the dream backwards, trying to remember every detail.
    Then I get up and immediately write the whole thing down rather than taking dream notes.

      Whoa, now that's incredible recall.

      That entire motorcycle part.... totally made me pee my pants. For the record, if you ever have anyone ask you to speak nerdy to them (in a totally dirty way) THAT is what you should say. I'm totally not joking either.

      The moments with Yuya are touching. I really enjoyed reading this.

      That entire motorcycle part.... totally made me pee my pants. For the record, if you ever have anyone ask you to speak nerdy to them (in a totally dirty way) THAT is what you should say. I'm totally not joking either.
      If I ever do this and it goes horribly wrong I'm going to say "Kaomea made me do it".

      The moments with Yuya are touching. I really enjoyed reading this.


      I really have no other words. Well, perhaps just to ask for one of those motorcycles?
      Only if you promise not to go up in flames in a horrible accident.

      And you said you would never do it.
      I don't understand his ^ reference.
      I'm not sure if I understand it either.

      Well, not to put Hyu on the spot or anything…and I don't wanna (or mean to) sound like a douche but…

      "No, I have not and no, I will not..."
      That was you…Hyu, in response to a question asked…

      On this…A recurring DC in my dreams which doesn't behave like any other DC's

      To sum it up. Hyu, if I'm correct you said that wouldn't have sex with Yuya…that's changed…so that's why the "Spongy" reference is there…

      Yeah, pretty much. I've been working on having longer and more intense dreams a lot lately, and it starts to pay off.
      I don't feel like that's related to the whole sleeping within a dream thing though.
      It's more of a side effect of having longer dreams I guess?

      I don't know. For some reason when I have long dreams like this I get exhausted and sleeping seems like the right thing to do?
      I know, it's sort of odd. People keep pointing out that it's all in my head and that I don't have to get tired and sleep.
      But I don't really mind. It feels right, and the visuals are also kinda fun.
      It was also a great challenge to get over an issue with darkness I've been having in my dreams.
      Darkness or closing my eyes would always end my dreams, which was very annoying, but I managed to get over it.

      Lol, don't worry, you're not sounding like a douche or anything.
      I always appreciate questions, and you're perfectly right to point out this rather major change.

      To give some context, Apoc asked:
      Have you tried having sexual intercourse with her? Not to be rude or inappropriate, but I think it'll make you more connected with her as a person and I can almost guarantee that it'll be amazing sex due to the nature of this girl.
      Give it a try buddy.
      And I replied with:
      No, I have not and no, I will not...
      So yeah, that train of thought has obviously changed.
      In fact, my dreams have completely changed since then.
      Back when I wrote this, everything was extremely weird, and I had no confidence whatsoever.
      Basically I just followed Yuya's guidance, and never took any initiative.
      Combine that with her mysterious nature and you might be able to understand why I felt like that.

      Now everything is different though.
      I'm confident in my abilities and I like to take initiative.
      I love getting into trouble and fooling around, things I wouldn't have dared to do back then.
      And yeah, then this sort of just happened, I didn't really see it coming.

      Amazing, Hukif taught me Time dilation.

      Also, I had a Lucid today! Second Lucid! > Only lasted a few seconds and I wasn't even trying to Lucid, I was on a break.
      It only lasted a short while because I forgot how to stabilise a dream. Weird? Right? And I wanted to Astral Travel, So I was rushing.

      Also, Hyu. Do you now think that their are dream realms? Afterlife? The way Yuya spoke, Seems like she thinks so.

      Yeah, Hukif is on a whole other level.
      Btw, when you become lucid you should chill out. Rushing things is bad.

      Also, Hyu. Do you now think that their are dream realms? Afterlife? The way Yuya spoke, Seems like she thinks so.
      According to Yuya (as far as I understand) there are indeed different realms accessible through dreams.
      The most obvious one is the one created within your own mind, where you are free to dream whatever you please.
      There are no limits here.

      Then there's another much bigger realm, inhabited by spirits and a bunch of other things.
      It just exists, it's not a creation of someone's mind.
      This is where Yuya lives and where most of my dreams occur.
      In this realm you are not omnipotent. You have to abide by the physical laws of this world.

      There are more realms, but I don't really know much about them.

      I should probably mention that this is what Yuya says and how I experience things in my dreams, which is not to be confused by what I believe in waking life.

      Lol. That makes one question what you believe in waking life and the reason for the difference.

      There's no physical evidence to suggest that such realms exist and that we can visit them during our dreams.
      But that's the core issue right there: "physical"
      It's not a physical issue and we don't really have the technology to investigate this scientifically.

      I see no reason to believe anything there is no evidence for, but if the reason for the lack of evidence is caused by the absence of a scientific investigation method, there is no reason to completely discard the possibility either.
      So yeah, for now I see no reason to believe anything like this, but I'm open to the possibility.


      The reason for the difference is a more difficult question to answer.
      Experiencing these "truths" in dreams is overwhelming, and I find it really easy to believe things in dreams, even completely ridiculous ones.
      I also sort of want to believe when I dream, because it makes the experience that much more intense.
      I hope this makes sense ~_~

      It does. Basically you'll believe anything thrown at you in dreams but outside of that your waking life logic fucks up all the cool shit.

      What a shame. Then again, if things didn't work this way, there would be no line. Sometimes we need lines. Good call... I think....?

      Yes, that's pretty much it.
      For some reason a lot of people whom I've answered the same question to had a lot of difficulty understanding that you can consider some things facts in your dreams, but be skeptical about them in waking life at the same time.

      Question: Do you always have to do stability checks, And to keep checking if you're dreaming in time dilation? Or do you only do it once at the start, And just say "Anchor Dream stability and vividness"?

      Also, How did you remember that much of your lucid? Three Days?!? Crazy Man you are!

      Although Hukif has Lucids that last 30 odd years, I'm surprised he is not mentally Ill and questioning his reality. Clever techniques he uses though.

      I only stabilize when I notice that there are stability issues, such as my senses not working properly.
      This is often the case when I become lucid.
      I mostly use mental stability methods because I find them very easy to do and they don't really require any time.
      Usually, when my dreams become very intense/deep, they will remain perfectly stable on their own though.

      Also, How did you remember that much of your lucid? Three Days?!? Crazy Man you are!
      I've been working on my recall for over a year now and it's starting to show.

      Although Hukif has Lucids that last 30 odd years, I'm surprised he is not mentally Ill and questioning his reality. Clever techniques he uses though.
      I wonder. That's the first thing I thought of when he told me he had lucids that lasted that long.
      I haven't had many dreams that lasted over a day, but I have woken up confused from some of them.
      Usually after like 2 seconds logic kicks in though and everything is perfectly obvious.

      far out duuuuuude It just makes me realize again and again the importance of 'believing in your dreams'.
      I need to work on my doublethink.. dreams aren't real when you're awake, but they are real when you dream... makes sense
