      Black and white dreams or no sound?

      Often when I dream about talking to a DC I can not hear anything. It is like we are using telepathy and not sound. I also notice I rarely hear background noise like birds or the wind. What have you experienced?

      I also notice that some of my LDs are seemingly in black and white. It is mostly the ones I have trouble recalling. Can any of you remember dreaming in black and white?

      I've never dreamed in black and white, but most of my dreams tend to be soundless or at least very quiet. I often just hear a constant 'hum' similar to what you'd expect to hear in sleep paralysis (the nice thing about this: I consider it a dream sign now, helping me go lucid often). Talking to a DC is sometimes, like you said, like telepathy--I just sort of know what they said, and they just know what I said. Other times, it's more like they mumble a bit and I magically understand them.

      I have noticed, however, that there have been a few special occasions where I do hear sound, for example: I'm a composer, and I've had dreams here and there of composing music that I can actually hear (and strangely enough, tends to be fairly good!). There have been a few other occasions like that that I can't think of on the top of my head, maybe it's when I intentionally create the sound that I can actually hear it.

      As a rule my dreams are silent movies, but in full colour. Once I tried to yell at the top of my lungs, and I could actually hear it - but my voice sounded as if it came through a telephone in an adjacent room. I wondered if I had actually yelled out in my physical bedroom, but only hearing it vaguely due to being so deeply immersed in the dream.

      Some of my dreams are in a strange twilight kind of colouring; it's not really black and white, but it's very dark and actually a kind of black and blue; the small amount of light present is sort of blueish. Despite the lack of lighting, these dreams seem to be extraordinarily "real" - as if "I'm actually there".

      So ... is this the real universe, or is it just a preliminary study?

      I haven't had a black and white dream, but I've noticed they're soundless unless I speak and that DCs often communicate telepathically.

      There have been exceptions though, notably this one (link to DJ entry). I could hear the wind and the sound of the leaves, and at the end I was experimenting with my voice and it turned into the most intense lucid experience I've had -- I actually saw the sound waves! This was right after a WBTB where I was outside doing one of the listening dream yoga exercises, so that probably explains why I heard the wind so clearly!

      You might think that you rarely have black and white dreams, however black and white dreams occur about 50% of the time. They are just less memorable because color is way more exciting! As for the soundless, I cannot say what you are experiencing has ever happened to me!
