    1. Programmer's Haven

      by , 03-26-2011 at 03:37 AM (Short Stories with Tragic Endings)
      Here is where programmers interested in working on the Lucid
      dreaming game can come to chat about things that need to be
      done and share code that they have written for the project.

      If you are new to programming, don't fret. I will be giving a crash
      course in C ( Programming Tutorial )

      I will also use this page to keep track of the contributors to the
      programming aspect of this game. If you are on the team or
      are interested in joining, if I have missed you, please post here
      to have your name on the list.

      I have attempted a MILD and finally fall asleep after being kept up for a while by my mantra.
      I have a very unique dream. I have only had one other like it in my entire life. My
      vision was black and I was literally just thinking. No body, no sounds. Just visualizations and
      thought. The subject of these thoughts was lucid dreaming.
      The one time I did this before was
      about recursive methods in programming which I was only able to describe as a "dream in code".
      I remember having a "eureka" moment with something in that subject area but I didn't remember
      what it was when I woke up.

      I haven't been getting to bed as early as I should so my
      dream recall is really suffering

      I woke up and could only remember a very slight bit of the
      dream but not enough to even write down keywords
    6. Hit Sleep Paralysis Transition!

      by , 01-30-2011 at 06:51 AM (Short Stories with Tragic Endings)
      I hit the transition to Sleep Paralysis!!!!!!
      But the experience was so intense and I accidentally moved!

      Anyway so here's the story:
      I laid down for yet another WILD attempt I had stretched, cleared
      my mind, and gotten all ready. So I laid down and started focusing
      on my breathing and the canvas that was the back of my eyelids.
      I couldn't seem to get anything as far as visual goes for the
      hypnagogics. But eventually I started getting my auditory. At first
      it was just the usually tones and shit. Then I got a really freaky one.
      It was a female voice, middle-aged. She said "Lay down, you need to
      sleep" over and over. It was creepy. But I was patient. I then got
      a really bright light in my right peripheral as if there was some light on
      my night stand. It looked like an external light. That lasted for a while and
      finally. I then got a hypnagogic smell. I smelled rotten eggs in the room
      and thought "god what is that?" but every time I try to smell to get a better
      whiff of it, it went away. A short while later, I felt my entire body go tense.
      It was indescribable. My heart started pounding very loudly and fast. It
      resonated through my entire body. Every muscle in my body was as tense
      as could be. Then I accidentally moved from the intensity so my body said
      "hey, you're not asleep. Fuck you" and feeling rushed back to every limb, although the
      "vibrations"( I assume were what I was describing as my massive heartbeat ),
      were still going. I tried for a while then realized that I had failed and got up.
      I did a RC which passed I had indeed failed.

      I remembered the dream for a while but had to go to my university's
      computer science building to do my homework for programming II. Now
      I can't remember enough of the dream to really write anything. All I know
      is it wasn't lucid .

      I am in the dining room of my best friend's house and he asks me if I want
      to split the cost of a pizza. I said "What kind". He replied, "Everything". I
      thought about it for a while, I'm stingy with money, and then decided that a
      pizza would be good. I went up to my house to get something, my best friend
      lives across the street from me so it's not far, I do not remember what I went
      to get, but when I came back down, there was an african american guy there,
      presumably a friend of his, and he was apparently upstairs sleeping. I asked
      the friend why he would be sleeping and he replied, "I don't know I just came
      for pizza". I suggested perhaps going up to wake him, but decided against it.
      There was no pizza yet. Suddenly the dream snapped to my friend being in
      the dining room tying his Pumas. I asked about the pizza, he said we probably
      wouldn't do it. We went outside and quickly built two Go-Karts and decided to
      drive them. The dream snapped to daytime on Rt 100 South. We were riding
      along in Go-Karts, did not occur to me that they are not a street-legal vehicle,
      and a lady in an SUV that went by "told us off" for being on the wrong side of
      the road. We were riding on the right side and this is America so she was just
      an idiot. After a while my friend and I came to these steps in the woods in the
      middle of nowhere. They were like the steps made of wood 4X4s and backfilled
      gravel/dirt you see in parks. We tried to ride the go-karts up these steps but they
      seemed to gradually get steeper and eventually the go-karts wouldn't take it
      anymore. We would have to push them, but before we go off the dream snapped
      again to a different scene. We were in a cabin of some sort and there was a baby.
      We had fed him celery and apparently it wasn't good for him, he started wheezing
      and crying and a doctor came up and checked him out. The doctor said he had too
      much cellulose, that he was losing blood and friction.
      It made sense at the time...

    10. Near SP? 2

      by , 01-23-2011 at 12:59 AM (Short Stories with Tragic Endings)
      So I tried again and this time I heard several noises. Many different types of noises but there
      was one thing common about them. They weren't external. In other words, I wasn't hearing them
      with my ears. I could clearly tell they were all in my mind but they were ear-splittingly loud. The
      first was like a train whistle. The second was a low hum. the third was a really badly played piano.
      Then something that sounded like pacman dying. and another piano only it sounded a little better.
      I'm positive this was early stage SP. I used a counting system but when I got up into the 400's I kept
      losing track because I was really starting to drift off. I could feel it and was conscious of it. Pretty cool
      shit . I can't wait for a LD.

    11. Near SP?

      by , 01-23-2011 at 12:59 AM (Short Stories with Tragic Endings)
      I laid down to attempt a WILD, on my back, arms resting on my
      stomach. I closed my eyes and began breathing slowly and deeply.
      After what felt like about five minutes, I began to feel like I wasn't
      getting enough air but I kept breathing slowly and deeply, trying to
      ignoring the feeling. I then started to feel pressure in my lower jaw.
      The pressure increased and moved up my face until there was a strong
      feeling of pressure covering everywhere but my nose and eyes. I later
      started feeling somewhat disoriented as if my arms were actually a
      couple inches to the left of where they should have been. I noticed that
      I couldn't really feel my arms at all. Every now and then I would get a
      different sort of disorientation, like when you have just spun around
      twenty times and the room is still spinning. I could feel my eyes twitching
      and I thought I was close. But it never made it to full SP. It sort of just
      stayed like that.
