      I've heard of people who can extend their lucid dreams to days or even years. This must surely be the holy grail for many lucid dreamers, including myself. Anyone here able to do it?

      What I want to know is if these dreams are completely indiscernible from real life years. Is there something which doesn't make them quite as real? How about as original, with all the weird and unexpected happenings that you'd get from real life?

      Since you're experiencing the lucid dream for years, do you get to sleep 'inside' the lucid dream, or are you awake all this time for many years?

      Finally, do you experience a change of personality after you awake? Do your family, friends and relatives see you as a different person?

      I really can't answer all the questions you ask, as I''ve never done it, but I'll give you a couple links related to this.

      anyone know how to extend time in dreams (me asking this question a while back)

      The Monk who lived 100 years in a night (discussion about just that, mostly people arguing about the possibility of time extention, some actual claims of success)

      As you'll see if you bother reading those, many people don't believe this is possible, but some people claim to do it, so I believe it is possible, just very hard, and must be done correctly (I don't know what correct is though), but as for the particulars, I can't tell you anything.

      well my best friend has had a dream that lasted for 2 months in there,really he was in another reality or dare i say it, universe...if anyone here has read the kzinti series of books than thats what he was except without all the aggressives of kzinti nature. He didnt even know who i was when he woke up.
      Yes he did change and he adjusted and rememorised again the many pains of modern earth.....
      I remember a few years ago but my dream lasted a few days in it,Actually their just as real as your mind is clear and yes the one i had had unexpected happenings as if a different reality.
      And sleeping in a dream? well if you could wake up in a dream, then maybe the opposite can happen

      I'm not good at getting LD's, but I do have a fairly good level of control over them. One dream I had lasted a few days, two IIRC, but it was probably luck. Anyways I was lucid for most of it and much to my surprise after the first day of going out and doing many things, I was tired. I just fell asleep inside the dream and woke up the next morning, still in it.

      I don't know why anyone would think it isn't possible to extend your dreams to last long periods of time. Everything you've ever experienced is just signals sent to and processed by your mind, so why shouldn't your mind be able to do with those what it will? Especially in a dream.

      That's my personal opinion too, but many people disagree. I use the rational that if when you are near death your mind can flash decades before your eyes in a second, then it can probably flash days before your eyes in hours (which is what would happen in a dream). What I do agree with, though, is that normally when you have dreams where time is extended (lucid or non-lucid), what is happening is your brain is playing the dream like a movie, where you experience a few minutes of dream, and then your mind just skips a period of time, and the next part of the dream is hours/days/months/years later, with no dream in between, but it fits in perfectly with the dream, so you don't realize that your brain skipped a bunch of time, but really you only had 5 minutes of dream, lasting 5 minutes real time, not hours/days/months/years of dream lasting 5 minutes of real time. But I still believe on rare occasions you do have dreams that are not like this movie-like dream scenario, but are really hours/days/months/years of dream time crammed into a few minutes of real time.

      I think that with intense training and experimentation, it may be possible, but like you said the majority of people who believe they've had extremely lengthy dreams (days or months) are just tricked by the whole movie effect, their brain making the interpolation that a bunch of time has passed by.

      i doubt this is possible... ive never read anything from the lucidity institute or anywhere else that promotes this as a reality scientifically
      but if it was...
      it would be amazing to be able to learn how to do things in lucid dreams that way, after all u can practice things in ur sleep and if it extended for years that would be the cats ass.

      When time appears distorted in a dream, it&#39;s because your mind is processing a lot of memory fragments rapidly, and since the subconscious can process information at a faster rate than the conscious, you experience all of it. I can relate this to how I finish a thought mentally before I finish it in my mind verbally while I&#39;m awake, but it doesn&#39;t happen in dreams.

      Try speeding the clock instead of slowing it, then speeding yourself until the clock appears to tick normally.
