    Quantiq's Progress Journal!

    So welcome to my dream journal!

    This is where I post all the random stuff I dream about online for people to read and let me know how I have pretty strange dreams.

    Number of LDs: Currently, I am at ONE LD as of October 17. It was sort of a half DILD / half WBTB which was during a nap but nonetheless it was truely an incredible experience. If you haven't had an LD yet, just keep trying! Eventually you will get it if you are determined to succeed.

    Started: I got into dreaming around June 2011. I was never into dreaming at all, and I thought they used to be stupid so I constantly kept putting them off and forgetting about them. And sadly it is because of this that my recall is absolutely terrible. I basically have to start from zero and work my way up, which I am hoping to do.

    Business Inquiries: If you want to get in contact with me about any business inquires on my amazing story telling and writing abilities please send me a PM. My minimum royalty fee is 99.99999%. No I'm just kidding, I know my journal isn't exactly an amazing piece of fine literature.

    Feel free to leave comments, they are much appreciated!

    1. At the train station - Portugal

      by , 10-17-2011 at 09:30 PM (Quantiq's Progress Journal!)
      My recall was terrible last night so I only remember a short fragment which is too bad. But I think in general it is getting a lot better. (3 months ago I couldn't even remember any dreams.)

      I'm still at only 1 lucid but all day awareness and RCs are definitely helping, I actually ended up doing an RC in one of my dreams the other night but I never became lucid.

      Anyway, still practising. My goal is to achieve lucids almost everyday, which would be amazing. Definitely trying to make it happen.

      Anyway, that's it for today!

      Fragment 1
      I’m in a train station bathroom in Portugal with a guy named Sandro. We had to wait for the train so we used the bathroom in the meantime. The bathroom looked very dark. I remember being really hot and dry so I took off my shirt and put it underneath the tap. Sandro asked what I was doing but we soon realised the train was here so we rushed out of the bathroom and got on this red – looking, double decked bus; Similar to the ones seen in London.
      I had a glasses case with me on the station platform just before we got on. The glasses case held our tickets. Sandro just rushed on the tram heading upstairs while I showed the woman who was driving our tickets. Sandro looked quite surprised. I guess he was surprised that I actually still held the tickets because he thought I lost them.

      When we get off the tram, we are at the beach. I see one of my friends from school, Alex and say hi to him. The station we get off at looks very much like a beach area. I remember it being sunny and quite busy.

    2. Looking for Cheerios

      by , 09-20-2011 at 10:16 PM (Quantiq's Progress Journal!)
      As strange as the title is I can guaraantee you the dream was even more strange. However, before I get to that: some side notes.

      Sixth DJ entry on dream views. As for my regular DJ, I have entries scattered all over the place (computer, iPhone, notebook, etc.) I'll organize it all at some point perhaps.

      Insomnia is still gone so I'm proud of that, although last night I couldn't really recall any of my dreams. Had a nice sleep though.

      Also, as promised, this is my first DJ entry with a visual element to it. So hope you enjoy all the effort I put into my 2 minute sketches.

      That's it for news today!

      Had a nightmarish dream about a nightmare grocery store in a cave giving away free food for a crowd of millions.


      So I'm in this ridiculously scary dream. I just remember it being night-time and extremely dark. I was driving in a car to this event where millions of people gathered to pick up free food at this nightmare grocery store. So as I'm driving along I see emergency vehicles directing traffic around this cave in the ground. It seemed as if there were millions of people. As I'm driving a police officer directs me to a parking lot on the side of where everyone is standing.

      When I get out of the car I'm standing in this huge centre with a 100metre tall ceiling. I leave the car behind and try to find a way in to the cave. Since we were underground in this centre, there seemed to be doors on the wall of the centre which people could use to get inside the cave / nightmare grocery store. Walkways surrounded the place and I went on one to try and see if I could get inside from there, however in the end I found it that it was an illusion. The walkways led no where and you would actually need to walk around to the cave entrance to get in.

      I walked back the way I came from with the route I took to get to the parking lot. Eventually, I end up in the centre of where everyone is standing and find out I need to jump into the hole in the ground. Most people hesitated to jump because it was a pretty high fall but after a while people jumped in.

      The Cave Entrance.

      I jump in. The place I'm standing in now looks like an extremely hellish place. The floors were red and rocky. The atmosphere was cold and people inside looked absolutely miserable in the dark environment. However, people stayed. The environment might have sucked but the free food was something everyone came for. Strangely enough, I ended up having a craving for cheerios and I went out on a search to find some.

      Imagine this but packed with people and groceries.

      I searched for a box of cheerios for a while when I saw one in this room I was standing in. However, as I tried to grab it a mother with her family just stood there looking at me and said, "That is not your box, go find your own." Hungry, I tried to lie about it just grab the box of cheerios. "Uhmm... I'm pretty sure this is mine, I left it here when I went to go look for my shoes."

      Worst Excuse Ever.

      The woman just looked at me with a strange look on her face. She wasn't buying it. So instead of arguing with her I just decided to give up on that box and find another somewhere else. Eventually, I get to this giant lava pool which was the grocery store's bakery section. I thought to myself, "Ah, they have to have it here. This place is huge!"

      I enter the room and see a staff member stocking the shelves of the bakery section which bordered the giant lava pool. "Excuse me," I said, "Do you happen to have cheerios here?"
      "No, not here. However you can get them from this room up ahead. The only thing is that you need to go through this life-threatening type puzzle." (sort of like portal with a lot of deadly lasers)

      I couldn't believe this. I ended up trying the puzzles but I was to scared that I would die so I went back to talk that guy again. Just as I walk up to him I see a box of cheerios on the shelves. Quickly, I grab the box and few other baked goods and run off.

      I walk through this hallway where I see my friends from school. They start talking to me about how much food they have eaten. I just see P.K. standing there with all this food in his hand and I start laughing at how much of a pig he is. (He's a pig in real life too, just can't gain any weight for some reason). M.C. starts talking to me, "Hey did you hear about this kid who had to go to hospital?"
      "No. What happened?"
      "Well apparently, there was this kid who had to go to hospital because he ate too much and insisted his parents that he was fine and should eat more."
      When I heard that I became a bit shocked and stopped eating.

      Finally, I leave my friends and head out of the cave with the cheerios box. I walk out of the cave and see that something had happened outside but my dream ended before I could see what was actually going on.

    3. Train Crash.

      by , 09-18-2011 at 12:36 AM (Quantiq's Progress Journal!)
      Fifth DJ entry! However, I still havent had a lucid experience yet. I'm not sure what it could be, I've been trying so hard lately to do a DILD however I can't get my mind to recognise I'm in a dream. MILD next, we'll see how that goes.

      Anyway, my insomnia has been gone for the past month because of routine and consistency with my sleep schedule. Its totally awesome just being able to sleep normally again and fall asleep within a half-hour.

      Also I'm thinking of drawing some sketches on paper and uploading them here so you guys can sort of have a visual element when you read this journal. Just trying to make it a bit more interesting.

      That's it for news today!


      September 16 - 17, 2011 - Train Crash.

      Vividness: 8.5/10

      Had a weird dream last night but I loved it because it was like an action packed movie. Anyway, not much which I wrote down because I couldn't force myself to do a full DJ entry at 4:00am.

      Dream 1
      I remember being in Portugal riding on a newly built transit infrastructure project which they had just implemented. I was on this single track line of what seemed to be an above ground subway train. This train would take you all over the city that you were in.

      I boarded the train with my family and it was going pretty smoothly for a while until the driver jumped out the window while the train was still going at really high speeds.

      I remember hearing all this screaming as the train needed to go through this tight corner. Finally, someone opened the door and and he said, "Quick! Jump off!" And we jumped off as fast as we could while we pushing to get off the train and we had just made it. The train then derailed itself and crashed into a glass pane before catching on fire.

      ...And that was really all I remember because I didn't write much down.
    4. Duck Duck Goose in a Pagoda? (Random Segments)

      by , 08-31-2011 at 06:59 PM (Quantiq's Progress Journal!)
      Forth DJ entry. I'm going to try to see if I can post everyday from now on. Its good to get into a habit.

      Anyway, I haven't posted in quite a while and because of that I also haven't really ade much progress in my LDing. I guess I just need to try harder.

      Some Things that I would like to implement regularly:

      - Regular Schedualed Dream Journal + DJ post on DV.
      - 3 types of Reality checks
      - Meditation
      - Vitamin B + Apple Juice (We'll see if this works )

      Anyway I've got recall and my insomnia up to par so I'm good with that. Anyway, if anyone has any advice let me know.

      That's it for news today!

      - Cheers!

      Basically its a dream about my old class from grade 10. Its pretty bizarre considering the fact the dream was totally cluttered with random segments that made little sense what so ever.

      Segment 1
      Hundreds of students were sitting under a hollow Asian style large Pagoda type of structure. The flooring was light hardwood and we all sat in a square like formation around the structure. Students were sitting on the floor and teachers were standing around in various places. The teachers told us to clap along with whatever clapping pattern they were doing. I was confused. I sat there and at first it seemed like the students refused such a dumb demand but as the clapping got louder (obviously more people joined in eventually), I realised that this wasn't a group clap but instead a giant game of duck duck goose only by pointing instead of touching someone. I sat behind S.D. and she was chosen. She then pointed at H.M. and he seemed to point at me but someone else got up and I became slightly embarrassed.

      Segment 2
      The next thing I remember was a yellow memo being handed out to our class from my grade 10 teacher. We were in class having a discussion about aliens and some people said they believed they existed so just before we left we were given this memo. On the third paragraph it said "Oh and by the way, if anyone still believes in aliens visit this YouTube video." It was a short video with what I believe to be Jim Carey in it for some reason.
    5. Three - Dream Sex.

      by , 08-04-2011 at 06:12 PM (Quantiq's Progress Journal!)
      Hello! I'm on my third DJ entry now, and this one is quite a sexually explicit one so I won't post much details because of forum rules for posting sexually explicit details. So basically this entry is just fragments but still an entry none the less.

      Anyway, on to the main topic of discussion which I believe would probably be my progress which I also believe is much more important. I can definitely see my recall improving which is great. As well, I'm starting to train myself to become more aware that I am dreaming. And finally, vividness is going up dramatically because of training my brain to recognise dreams.

      I'm thinking that because I'm making use of my dreams that my brain finally recognises that they are not just useless pieces of information and throwing them away instantly when I wake up. I guess my advice to anyone who wants to have better recall and vividness is to start a dream journal. I can finally see why its recommended.

      In terms of my latest sleep, its been pretty good. I can't complain. I went to bed at 6pm last night and woke up today at 9am.

      Anyway, that it is for news today.

      - Cheers!

      Alright, so this is kind of weird but before I start I need to mention that I actually had a feeling before I went to sleep that I was going to have sex in a dream. I guess that was what induced it.

      Dream 1
      I was with a bunch of friends in what seems like a weird sort of hotel - b&b. I remember sitting on the floor with my friends and we were playing cards in a dimly lit room. Can't remember the exact number of people there were but it was enough to fill a few rooms with what I assume 2 or 3 beds each. I shared a room with one of best friends M.C and we were about to head off to sleep when I abruptly mentioned to one of friends K.L who is a girl of course, if she wanted to have sex. Astonishingly, she said sure.

      I can't believe I didn't go lucid here. I should have known that such a casual answer from her without any hesitation meant that I'm dreaming.

      Anyway, I went to her room which she wasn't sharing with anyone and we were about to do our thing but she remembered that she had to do something first before we got started. She left the room and headed downstairs and outside. I looked out the window from my bedroom which overlooked the parking lot and I saw her dad sitting in a car and K.L talking to her dad. I decided to wait by sitting on my bed. After about 10 minutes I grew impatient and went outside to see what was going on. I saw her dad outside by the car and he gave me strange look.

      Well this is awkward.

      Well I guess she forgot about me or something because as soon as she saw me we went back upstairs and her dad drove off. I asked her as we were going up the stairs, "Can we finally have sex now?"
      "Yeah alright you can do me if you want."


      We go to her room and we start...
      (Sexually Explicit Stuff Here)
      Finally, we're finished and I head out of my room and I see everyone standing out in the hallway with blank expressions. I guess they overheard us.

      This is where it gets even weirder.

      Dream 2
      After I see everyone look at me I begin to experience some weird sort of hallucination. My dream transfers over to this shopping mall and I experience this weird hallucination not quite like any other dream I've had. I'm in this empty shopping mall and my vision seems really blurry. I'm looking for K.L but I can't seem to find her anywhere. The ground starts shaking and gravity is shifted horizontally. Tables and chairs go flying as I try to hold on to this pole. Its no use and I have to let go. I go flying sideways where I end up experiencing this long falling sensation.

      I then wake up abruptly.

      I think it was somewhat of a nightmare or something. It was pretty weird.

    6. Two - Airports and Beaches

      by , 07-29-2011 at 02:04 PM (Quantiq's Progress Journal!)
      Hello Everyone! Welcome to my second entry of my Dream Journal. I actually had a really vivid dream last night, and I think I'm really starting to improve on my recall so I hope you enjoy today's entry. This is probably my most vivid dream this month and me feeling a bit sick last night is probably why. (I find if you're sick, the vividness of your dreams increase). However, I was actually able to recall a lot of it today because my recent journaling and the fact that my mind is getting used to recalling dreams.

      Anyways, I've made a list of some goals that I want to accomplish:

      [ ] - Have a dream, in a dream, in a dream.
      [ ] - Have a lucid dream.
      [ ] - Create Buildings, have inspiration for my architectural works.
      [ ] - Sit in a Paris café and make fruit explode everywhere. (+1 if you know the reference).
      [ ] - Fly in an LD.
      [ ] - Eat a sandwich on Mt. Everest.
      [ ] - Start a Dream Riot.
      [ ] - Have an LD watermelon.
      [ ] - Chill on the moon.
      [ ] - Get into a car chase in the middle of Amsterdam while driving a mini from "The Italian Job".
      [ ] - Attempt to share a dream (no politics, just want to see what happens).
      [ ] - Make dream time last longer. (Apparently possible )

      Anyways, if anything gets accomplished I'll check it off here. I'll let you know in future posts if I've added anything.

      - Cheers!

      Dream 1
      I am at an airport. Its completely empty and deserted. I walk around hardly noticing the fact that there isn't any people. I keep walking and I soon find myself in the terminal area. I look around and see a woman working behind the counter of a café. She looks at me and smilies,
      "Can I get you anything?" I look at her and tell her I just want a glass of water. She quickly hands me a glass of water and I keep walking around the airport with a glass of water in my hands.

      Yeah, so I basically stole that glass and never gave it back. I'm such a jerk in my dreams.

      I keep walking and I see a place to sit. The roof is covered in glass to let sunlight in, unfortunately it was a cloudy day so it was quite dark. I sit down in an orange beach chair and fall asleep inside my dream.

      Probably inspired from Schipol Airport in Amsterdam, where they have reclining beach chairs to sit down in, right in the middle of the airport. It looked very similar to this area in the airport.

      Dream 2:
      I then start to have a second dream, It's on the coast of an island. The borders which surround the beach and transition the beach area to the urban area seem familiar. They are stone archways with stone walls indented inside of them. The beach however on a sunny day would possibly be quite warm, however, today the beach was somewhat cold and windy. There were not many people here either and the people who are, are just taking a stroll on the beach. As I keep walking by the oceanside, with the water crashing under my feet, the terrain quickly changes into a rocky area. The terrain now is rocky and just below these very tall cliffs. I remember seeing seagulls perched on top of the rocks. When the waves crashed, the seagulls would move until the water was gone and land back on the rocks. They repeated this process over and over again. I kept walking along the rocks.

      I was then woken up by my alarm clock.

      Quantiq's Progress Journal!


      Hi Everyone! I'm going to start posting my Dream Journal on Dream Views to show my progress in terms of dream vividness and maybe provide some entertainment to those of you who want to read.

      Basically, my dreams just consist of small fragments and they are not very vivid, however, I hope that I progress to the point where my dreams become entertaining.

      I will also post goals, stats, and other cool stuff to monitor my progress. If you have any advice for me, let me know!

      Tommorow's post will consist of my recent dreams and how I am progressing.

      Cheers for now!
