    1. Journey to Master Gravity RC - Day/Night 2

      Day 2

      Attentiveness: 3/100
      Quality: 45/100

      OK, so today was certainly a bit more challenging. There were LONG gaps of me not focusing on the RC at all, and as usual I'm forcibly having to remind myself to concentrate on the task at hand. I did recognize however that my concentration tends to break when I'm doing something else, such as talking to another person. Multi-tasking real-life events and maintaining the level of awareness needed for this RC will certainly be a challenge, but the rewards will be worth it! After all, there won't be many times in a dream where I'll just be standing around...

      The quality of the RC is down a bit from yesterday. I tried to focus on the feeling of my feet more, while at the same time maintaining some king of awareness of my arms, but this is quite the task. I'll try and focus on the weight on my legs more tomorrow.

      Now that I've pinpointed some obstacles, I'll work to tear them down!

      Night 2

      Well, I don't know if I can contribute this to the boosted awareness that comes with the gravity RC or not, but my recall has spiked just within two days. I know I had at least 5-6 dreams last night, and I only formally recorded 1 in my voice recorder. I find it odd though...it seems that I had two major dreams last night, and the rest of my dreams more-or-less were a subplot of the two remaining dreams. Not complaining though, I love that kind of thing!

      Tonight's dreams also made me realize I have a LOOOONG way to go in terms of recall. I can barely recall dialogue between dream characters, and I have holes in my plot everywhere.


      Dream 1 - "The Old University and a Challenge"

      I was at a modeling show where a bunch of ladies trying on jewelry. I got the feeling I was in Paris. There was like a fast-forward time lapse of this event, repeating over and over. I didn't see the actual faces of the ladies, and I got the impression that this repeated event lasted approximately 50 seconds. Afterwards, I got a longer timelapse of the entire event, in which the ladies were going around doing different things. They were in fancy business casual, it almost seemed like a commercial. At different parts of the event, a transparent clock showed up overlayed on top of my visual, kind of indicating that time was passing. President of my university (Nido) appeared and time lapse thing kind of stopped.
      He was in a cave I didn't have a body, I was more like a distant spotlight shining on him. He was talking about various things (probably promoting the university) and was walking very deliberately across the cave. I got the impression that this was still following the previous commercial theme.

      I was now outside with Nido and my father. Got the feeling that I was in the past in the 90s, due to the student's mannerisms and their clothes. The campus was very underdeveloped. As we were going along, we were reassuring Nido he was going to do great things with the campus (rerouting montlieue, which is a street in High Point). We were driving with Nido...we tell him to keep driving along Montlieue until a point where we tell him the modern campus ends. He was surprised by this development, but he keeps driving.
      He keeps going, until "the end of montlieue" we almost ran into a wooden stub in the road. He informs us he has indeed try to petition the city for this change, but there's a private land in the way. He shows us a nearby dirt road that goes uphill, and it was blocked up by a fence. He tried to convince the company that owned it, but they wanted a bigger profit or something, so they wouldn't hand him the rights to build.

      There was a little field, with the private company playing soccer. Had the idea we could challenge them to the rights of the road. They started talking shit, and the challenge was set up. They had a team, and we had a team, but my team seemed to comprise of the characters from Haikyuu. The referees were cordial to each other, but the captains weren't for whatever reason. They had a girl mananger, and we did too (the younger one from Haikyuu). As soon as the game started, it paused, because the other team was getting water from the managers. However, our manager got the sense of inferiority because the time-outs lasted shorter with their manager than ours.
      Oddly enough, we started kicking like a green band-aid instead of a soccer ball. Our manager insisted the best way to score was the ball of up the band aid into a small ball, the "curve" it into the goal by blowing it into a straw. There was a scene of her doing just this (their goalie was now meta knight from Smash btw). I disagreed with her, claiming the best way to score was to kick the band-aid regularly.

      Dream 2 - "The Zombie Conspiracy"

      (I didn't formally record this one, so I'll do my best to try and remember it. I'm really not sure if it was one big ass dream or many dreams with continuing plot lines)

      There was a zombie apocalypse going on. I'm not exactly sure how it started, but by the time I can actually recall what was going on, I was in a familiar area, next to a fenced in baseball field. The entire team were zombies, wearing white striped uniforms. There was a DC accompanying me at the time - He had trimmed dirty blonde hair and sharp glasses, handsome. As we were sneaking behind the field, trying to stay out of the attention of the zombie team, the DC informed me that even though they were zombies, they could still undergo regular activities.

      The zombie virus was spreading exponentially. So little time had passed and there were already this many zombies. The DC and I snuck behind the field, where there was an area with a huge tarp set up. We had to navigate to brushes to get to this area. When we arrived, I felt safe. Something about this area said "not many people will think to go here." However, maybe we were being watch by other survivors, because one-by-one, other panicking humans arrived, seeking shelter from the Zombies.

      "Not good," said the DC, "at this rate...the zombies will come too!" Recognizing a bad situation, I felt up hill away from the tarp. I heard a certain noise...and the zombies came...


      I was inside a HUGE tower, that rose towards the clouds. Was I infected? I cannot recall. Some events occurred, and a female DC and I were atop the giant RPG-esque building. The top was like a balcony; from it, you could see everything below. A figure awaiting us at the top. He slowly turned around, facing us. He had an elongated head, with emerald eyes and his skin was colored green. I knew this man was responsible from the apocalypse.

      We had conversation, and he played a flute. By this melody, creatures around us turned to zombies, and sought out to find the nearest non-zombie entity to infect. I believe after more conversation, I knocked out his flute out of the balcony and fell after it.


      Somehow, the events prior were linked to gods/goddesses, in a very Harry Potty like manner. The last thing I can remember was playing 2-v-2 vollyball against one of the goddesses that I had A TON of conflict with Haikyuu style. I really wish I could remember how all of this tied together. I have the impression that the plot was long and exciting.

    2. Journey to Master Gravity RC - Day/Night 1

      by , 04-07-2016 at 05:09 AM
      As the title suggests, I'm embarking on a journey to master the gravity RC posted by Hukif (Post Located Here). I've always been interested in this specific technique, as it logically makes sense how it would have a high success rate, despite the overwhelming initial learning curve. However, I'm going to try my best and work towards daily lucidity. For the RC, I am focusing on the feeling of weight on my shoulders/arms, and on my legs, specifically my calves. This way, I'm highly attentive whenever I'm walking, when I'm sitting (feeling of weight of arms on whatever surface), and when I pick something up. Specifically, I tell myself to RC whenever I pick something up, because that's an obvious indication of weight.

      I will report how attentive I was at the RC for a daytime recap, and do a nightly journal. The attentiveness scale ranges from 0 - 100, where 0 is me giving the RC no thought at all, and 100 indicates the RC was in the back of my mind for the entirety of the day, in all aspects of my goals and how it relates to lucidity. I will also give a quality indicator, which is my opinion on how mindful I was towards the RC when I was actually doing it. For example, was I just noticing the gravity, or was I subconsciously questing whether the gravity was appropriate to whatever action I was doing? 0 indicates no questioning (for example, something could be abnormally heavy and I wouldn't so much give it a second thought, and 100 indicates that I'm properly questioning all aspects of the RC as it relates to the nature of dreams with respect to reality).

      Day 1

      Attentiveness: 5/100
      Quality: 50/100

      Thoughts: Man. This RC is hard! No wonder so many people kinda give it up. I would say my attentiveness towards the RC ran in 5-15 minute bursts, but I would quickly forget about it for an hour or so before jolting myself aware again. Also, the observations towards gravity were very 'forced' and 'awkward.' It's the same kind of feeling you would get if you were learning a new scale on the guitar; at first, you practice very intentionally and meticulously with the hope that it will become more natural in the future. Similarly, the observations I make with gravity with respect to my body feels very forced. Hopefully, this will improve in time. For the duration that I was RCing today, I was quite proud of the quality for the first attempt.
      There's certainly a lot more to take into consideration than just feeling weight on a body part.

      Night 1

      Let's see...last night I vaguely recall around 3 dreams, but I only noted 1 in my voice recorder. There were several opportunities in my recalled dream in which I could've implemented the gravity RC. Got to keep this in mind.


      Dream 1: Searching for a Training Crank

      I was in a classroom, similar to my computer classroom is high school. There was an unusual amount of desks inside the room, cluttering it. My father apparently was apart of some OP training faction, and was with his friend, who I noticed was also in crazy shape. His friend was running on the treadmill, and his legs were moving so fast they were a blur (Should've questioned this). Desiring crazy physical fitness too, I asked my dad for a way to get in better shape. He recommended some kind of resistance crank that would train my endurance. I apparently heard him say the crank was in the front pocket of his gym bag, but my cousin, who was also in the room at the time, corrected me, saying that the keys to his truck were in the front pocket, and that the crank was in my father's truck. At this point, he called me a dumbass. I tried to retort with some lame joke.

      There were so many desks in the room, I had to crawl under them just to make it to the exit (opportunity for gravity RC?). Outside, it was dark, and I was looking at the driveway of my home (should've noticed that the inside of the room I was in wasn't actually a room in my house). Going to my father's truck, my hands were shaking trying to unlock the door with the keys. The darkness was very unsettling for some reason, and I had a feeling that someone was going to come up from the street and mug me. The truck was extremely cluttered inside. I was going to use my phone as a light source, but apparently it died. I ended up not being able to find the crank.
