      Can you warp time in LDs?

      I have been wondering if you could warp time in LDs so you could spend days in them. To do so you would have to make the time you dream in real time increase, too. any ideas?

      I have no idea how and even if there is a process to stretch out perceived time in a dream, but some people have claimed to have spent weeks / months and even years in a single LD. I'm under the impression however that within a dream, the perception of time is entirely subjective, which would explain to me why digital and analog clocks are so out of whack (making them good RC's). This just my opinion though, it'd be nice to hear someone more knowledgeable in this particular area.

      It certainly is one of the most interesting areas of LD, and one that is thoroughly unexplored I believe. We need a master Oneironaut to do some testing.

      I personally don't believe that you can spend more than a few hours in an LD, just because our REM periods aren't that long. IMO, dreams can only be as long as, or shorter than our time spent in REM each night.

      I can't warp time, don't believe it can be done either. However I do believe that you can change your own perception of it and thus "experience" a longer period of time despite it being shorter. I have done it a bit, but it generally involves headaches, so try not to do it much <.<
      Creating a new persistent realm, claiming it and breaking the last seal I made back in the beggining of my journey are my goals right now

      I have done the time warping in a number of different ways but could only manage maybe 4 hours out of it at best. Usually only a couple of hours.

      One way is to slow the time in the dream down so slow that it is barely moving, people seem frozen. I, on the other hand, could move around them. I was in a bubble of time all to myself and their time rate actually seemed cold to me. Still I had to keep concentrating on this to keep it going and I had to concentrate on staying lucid as well. More trouble than its worth.

      Another way; I teleported to a place that I knew, by feeling, was outside the realm of time. My lucidity was very easy maintain. The two areas I visited like this had me as the only inhabitant (boring) but still I explored them for about an hour.

      In my early days before keeping journals I did remember upon awakening thinking about how a dream seemed to have been days long but I think it was just very long (hours) and had parts in it that said it was "day 1, day 2, day 3".

      Maybe as a side point I remember a LOT of dreaming I have done before while in my dreams and sometimes I am remembering what is weeks worth of stuff I did. I was in one dream where I was remembering living a whole other life in a dream like reality.

      I think it is possible but only if we are actually using something other than our brains. If we are really leaving our bodies then it should be possible. If we are just dreaming it has to be during our sleep time.
