      Waking Life Lucid Dreamer Greeting Idea Thread (Verbal)

      We are creating an Unofficial Waking Life Lucid Dreamer Greeting! There is a sister thread to this one for the Physical Greeting/Gesture/Handshake.
      Here is how this works:

      1. Post a single idea for a verbal Lucid Dreamer Greeting we can say whenever we meet new people.

      2. Post as many times as you wish. (within reason!)

      3. Read through the entire thread, and Like all the posts with your favorite phrases.

      4. The post (not including this one!) with the most Likes by 1/14/2014 will become the Unofficial International Lucid Dreamer Greeting!

      "Hey, how are you? ", they reply:" fine", you reply:"Yeah, life's a dream". If they happen to say "not ok", then you reply:"well, you now what they say, life's a dream, and a nightmare too"

      Is the purpose of this to recognize lucid dreamers when you meet them without openly telling each other, or is it more of a handshake for fellow lucid dreamers.

      It would be hard to create a phrase that doesn't sound out of place if it was meant for identifying new lucid dreamers.

      “I Have a Dream" Martin Luther King, Jr.

      I think “I have a dream” works as a universal greeting because:
      #1 Lucid dreamers will recognize and respond to the secret password.
      #2 Non dreamers will view you as a visionary person who has set a high bar for themselves with impressive goals and a plan to achieve them.
      #3 When you are dreaming use the greeting “I have a dream”. If the dream character is a real person and you are having an accidental shared dream it could potentially trigger mutual lucidity. That would be cool.
      #4 It honors the memory of a man who died pursuing the dream of a better world with peace and human rights.

      Instead of shaking someones hand. You and the other person should pinch each others noses and say "Nice to breath you, are you dreaming now?"

      Is this about greetings or cheesy pick up lines for lucid dreamers?

      I have a nagging feeling I self-sabotage my WILD tries - this time - jump up with supposedly super recommendations for if you want to indicate, that you do LD, without triggering curiosity in non-practitioners.
      If your goal is not only detect fellow LDers, but inform people - the approach would be different and there are a lot of nice things to say.

      Buut: If somebody said "Live Lucid and Prosper" - even like that in Germany - the LDers would get it - esp. if you make a pronunciation to go with the "live" that invites to ponder that dreaming is included in living - and that somebody announcing lucid living in Spok-ish, surely does LD as well..
      And those who do not - at the worst think you are a presumptuous hobby philosopher.

      I actually think, simply the use of the word lucid alone in common tongue will tip of others - at least as in go cryptic back on you.
      I hardly ever read it clearly "off topic".

      In German - I might do it like this:

      The word is Klar-Traum - with klar meaning clear basically. But klar can also be used as "of course" - like clearly also can.
      If I give a bit of an off emphasis on it - I could say - Klar kann man träumen.
      Clearly one can/one is allowed to dream.
      Dreaming would be mainly understood as in making ambitious plans/daydreaming to the un-initiated..
      Hehe conspiracy talk from my mouth - cheers Nomad..wink.gif

      'May lucidity be with you.' (that's not really a greeting, but any Lucid Dreamer will understand it and it won't sound too much out of place)

      @StephL That's a great idea for a catchy German phrase. I really love the ambiguity of it!

      Members discovering other lucid dreamers as well..
      I sort of update my own discovery count there - lastly I found some on my darts-forum.
      Muuch more interest and actual experiences came up, than I expected - maybe one or the other will click my links to DV I put up.

      Got to maybe think of a further small link-list, I personally would like to water these darter´s mouths with.

      I think that it needs to be something that the largest number of people would be comfortable enough to say to someone they are meeting for the first time (to increase the possibility of success). The key is the matching response. It could be something natural like "(Nice) to meet you" swapped out with a word that isn't used that often, perhaps "(Splendid) to meet you." The response could be "Splendid to meet you too, interesting word choice...splendid." If you want to be sure, maybe the first person responds to the responder "deja vu."

      There could be a separate saying for acquaintances that you haven't discussed LDing with before, perhaps an exact, short phrase like "Whoa, deja vu." Again, the key is the matching response, maybe "It sounds like you need to unplug" (both from The Matrix). If the first person meant nothing related to LDing by using the deja vu phrase and looks at you strange with the "unplug" response, you can say "oh...your deja vu comment just reminded me of a line in the The Matrix." (you can decide from there if you want to discuss LDing at all).

      This thread is for listing one idea per post for the purpose of voting. Please reserve all comments for the main chat thread.

      I have a nagging feeling I self-sabotage my WILD tries - this time - jump up with supposedly super recommendations for if you want to indicate, that you do LD, without triggering curiosity in non-practitioners.
      If your goal is not only detect fellow LDers, but inform people - the approach would be different and there are a lot of nice things to say.

      Buut: If somebody said "Live Lucid and Prosper" - even like that in Germany - the LDers would get it - esp. if you make a pronunciation to go with the "live" that invites to ponder that dreaming is included in living - and that somebody announcing lucid living in Spok-ish, surely does LD as well..
      And those who do not - at the worst think you are a presumptuous hobby philosopher.

      I actually think, simply the use of the word lucid alone in common tongue will tip of others - at least as in go cryptic back on you.
      I hardly ever read it clearly "off topic".

      In German - I might do it like this:

      The word is Klar-Traum - with klar meaning clear basically. But klar can also be used as "of course" - like clearly also can.
      If I give a bit of an off emphasis on it - I could say - Klar kann man träumen.
      Clearly one can/one is allowed to dream.
      Dreaming would be mainly understood as in making ambitious plans/daydreaming to the un-initiated..
