    18-01-27 Lots of Hallucinations

    I had a lot more of these waking hallucinations I've been having since two days ago. I remember little of their content, but they all felt so... significant. Like it's not supposed to be able to happen. I recall a remote viewing event, wanting to know the time and 'seeing' a clock through my closed eyes, and more cool shenanigans. I had an amazing degree of control over their content. Like I was controlling the story through my fantasies, fantasies that manifested themselves right in front of me. Like I was the character and 'director' of my dream at the same time.

    There was a moment I fantasized about meeting 'her'. The scene that unfolded in front of me was me walking up to a stage, manned by a full crew (like light and sound guys, stuff like that). I thought I'd prefer some privacy for an encounter like this, but I went along with in, anyway. I approached what looked like a wooden shape of an airplane (?) on the set. I couldn't see her, but knew 'she' was in the right seat. I took the seat next to her.

    The story continued and went off some wild tangent, and I wondered if I hadn't strayed too far from the original plot.

    One of the hallucinations turned a bit violent. Some guy did something that made me very angry, and I think I somehow got him onto the ground. I woke up feeling such intense hatred, adrenaline literally coursing through my veins. The hallucination turned to mere fantasy as I woke. I fantasized about smashing his skull to bits with a baseball bat. As my awareness of the real world got stronger, the hate subsided and I calmed down.

    Another hallucination happened while I was listening to the newest album of Carbon Based Lifeforms. I went from dream to wakefulness so sudden, I could 'hear the silence', and suddenly regaining my hearing and hearing the music. Like my consciousness went 'online' a second or so before my hearing did.

    In another dream I was being flown around a tropical environment (I think it was supposed to be the Miami area, but it looked 'flooded' and primitive somehow. Somewhat post-apocalyptic yet fully inhabited. Watching the other guy fly somehow made me realize I could do it myself. I was in the water (hard to explain again, water surrounded by shanty town houses/buildings, and had to scale a high wall. The others just flew up and over it, but I had trouble taking off from the water. I found a chair, partially submerged and attached to a wall, and decided to climb on it to give me a little boost. That's when I woke up.

      Ok this interests me, as I have had something similar in the past. Elements from a dream that have carried on into waking life as hallucinations. For me, the common theme with these has been the intensity of emotion. They have ranged from disturbing whirlpool effect of my front room carpet and coffee grounds (whirlpool in a cup xD), which lasted about 5 mins outside of dream time. To having a ring of orange flames coming from my body which lasted a half hour before subsiding. I would say the intensity of emotion directly effected the time lapsed (unsurprising, though I didn't think about it at the time).
      So I'd be interested in knowing what feelings you were experiencing, you said extreme anger in one, any other emotions?

      No, just intense hatred.

      I don't hallucinate while awake and walking around, though... not sure if that was what you were trying to imply. Tripping balls 30 minutes after getting out of bed almost sounds more like a form of mental illness than a side-effect of dreaming.

      When I say I 'hallucinated', I mean that I am in bed, eyes closed, but still feel, smell and hear the real world around me, while also 'seeing' dream imagery through closed eyes. In this 'hallucination', a DC did something that pissed me off and the burning anger simply persisted a good few moments after physically opening my eyes and sitting upright. I've slammed my fist into a (real life) wall because of a similar incident a few years ago. I was about to hit someone in a dream but woke up very suddenly!

      Ok, yes it's hard to give a name to that particular state.
      [A hallucination is something that happens while awake. It has been scientifically documented as happening to a person when they have been sleep deprived, namely deprived of REM sleep. The person will then "dream" during waking state, this is what a hallucination is. It will happen to anybody and is an unavoidable consequence of REM sleep deprivation.
      It has become connected to mental illness and drug addiction namely alcohol abuse. As mental patiences are often prescribed drugs which will inhibit their REM sleep (they do not dream). Hence both groups commonly have hallucinations when they stop taking whatever drug they are on.
      I am not in either of those groups and I didn't manage to do it while walking around I was in bed both times.]

      As to the imagery while eyes closed but still aware of external stimuli. This could be one of a number of states. Either coming in or out of dream i.e hypnagogic.
      Or a state that I have experienced but I do not and have not found a name for it, which is as follows:
      After closing my eyes for a short period of time, I can see images appear in my minds eye (seemingly behind my eyelids) these are usually highly vivid and detailed, realistic or abstract. I previously thought they were random but have quite easily managed to affect them by giving a prior intention to my mind before beginning.
      However, I found it difficult to have much interaction with DCs like a regular dream, as you have. Although with more practise i'm sure it would be possible.
      So I'm not very knowledgeable about it but I would have thought someone else in the dreamviews universe should have experienced it too. Maybe you should start a thread on it if you haven't already.

      Yeah, I could. I'm not very active in the forums anymore, though.
