      Should We Get The Word Out?

      I got a call from the National Cancer Society. Thay asked me if they were to send me 15 prewritten letters if I would provide the postage and send them out to neighbors. OK what the heck. Why not.
      You all wonder where this is going? Well an popped into my head. If the forum members constructed an informative and intellegent letter, and there was a poll to determine the majority in favor of how it was written. Each one of us could then send at least one letter out to anybody in their area.
      (I have this problem with Lucid dreaming being so incogneto)

      -I know some of you feel this is somthing that you like to have for youself, and could care less if anyone else new. However consider that this could open up new channels of opprotunity for many people to over come fears and the whole list of other things we know of its benifits.
      What do you all say?

      Hmm, not sure. Its still a thing thats "up there" with things that people are likely to put off as nonsense or new-age hippy crap... maybee if it would be anynominous. If we'd be able to get on Oprah or something, that would help alot, heh. Dunno though. Sometimes I feel like not everybody should know, my little secret, this site is my little secret meeting place of awesome people with like-minded thoughts, lots of attention might just feel like invasion of something personal...

      CT & PD - I do know were you are coming from. It in a way makes you (or me at least) feel unique.
      However I still would urge you to again consider =-I know some of you feel this is somthing that you like to have for youself, and could care less if anyone else new. However consider that this could open up new channels of opprotunity for many people to over come fears and the whole list of other things we know of its benifits.

      I do not think it would even make a dent in the whole skeem of things. It is not like it will be mainstream by any strecth of the imagination.

      Most people are too dumb to be allowed to know about lucid dreaming.

      Keep lucid dreaming elite!!!

      Nice new tags for our names.

      I don't think the rest of the world is ready to know about lucid dreaming. At least they won't readily accept it.

      You can epect that in all facets of life though. While some may disregard it as BS, others may open up their mind!

      I've been considering writing something to the local newspaper. Maybe a small article or a letter to the editor.

      What do you think about that? If enough of us hit small our local papers, lucid dreaming might get some exposure.

      I wouldn't mention dream views directly, but would maybe put in the term "Lucid Dreaming" and maybe soething aout "How Things Work". That should generate some interest and some more hits on this site.

      But, some are just not ready to accept lucid dreaming as a valid thing
      you must be the change you wish to see in the world...

      I'm With you Seeker But it does not seem that the Forum members are embracing the idea as well as I thought.

      Also I agree.We do not have to mention Dream Views. But it would be a great way to generate a lot of letters and moreover to compile a decent letter from the Forums comments.

      i like the idea. i don't like how it would get commercialized by companies *cough*nova*cough* but i wouldn't mind the more abundant theories, techniques and experiences that would follow it.

      on a more realist note; tell everyone you want, it's not going to spread like wildfire then overtake us all... it's just going to be accepted by the few who want to experiment.
      clear eyes. strong hands.

      Oi don't fink we shood tell 'em abowt it! Dem uneducatud toipes is so ungood at understandin' fings deys don't know much about.

      I like it small. The delicate balance of personal interaction here is way too nice to cause a wave of new people to overpopulate the site.

      I agree there.
      The best times of your life should not be when you're still so young, or else you'll live a life always dreaming of the past.

      An opinion by me to think about:

      I love this site, i can remember when there was only 75 misread posts a day, and only 98 people comming to the site in one day. Now there is 300 misread posts a day, with 250 users a day.

      What's it going to be like in a month, if more people know about it? 6 months? 12 months?
      I love our SMALL community, its a 'home away from home', that not only discussed lucid dreaming, but personal life, etc. That will be taken away with thousands of members posting a day. We won't be able to read every post, we WON'T be able to keep up personally with everybody, our friends.

      Another thing i don't want is people who are interested only to get their questions answered, who come for a week, post like a whore, then leave. And the young kids who come here and are desperate for sex, and want it in their dreams...this site will be bombarded with both if we let the general public know about it.

      FINAL VERDICT: I say, if people are INTERESTED in finding out about LUCID DREAMING, that they will FIND IT. It's the PASSION and ZEAL that make a lucid dreamer what he/she is. If the general public wants it, LET THEM FIND IT.

      This is a controversial issue.
      I've been spreading word about lucid dreaming, but only to people whom I consider worthy or openminded.
      And I succeeded in some cases.
      However *A LOT* of people aren't ready to spend *A LOT* of time learning LD's.

      So I vote NO for personal letters. It may be too much wasted effort.

      While I vote Absolutely YES for letters to local newspapers and magazines/tv.

      Lucid dreaming is very obscure and almost nobody knows about it.
      Another thing I've noticed - it matters HOW you tell people about lucid dreaming. If you just tell them that you can control your dreams and do anything, you will likely fail...

      At the same time if you will tell them about absolutely amazing method to make any of your wish come true, and then mention dreaming, you may succeeed....

      People just dont take dreaming seriously....
      they will put it in the same category as hippies, magic and other new age stuff...

      Ok, enough ranting

      Hehe, it is very easy to fix. Make a special obscure forum. make it secret. Allow only *old* members to log in.

      name it like dreamviews.com/carrotlovers/forum/ And nobody will ever find this secret society.

      Ditto. Besides, the last thing you do want is a headline such as:

      "MAD HIPPIES RECRUIT NEW CULT MEMBERS"
      "Beff Sherringham from Texas came to TwistWords Daily and gave us a letter, in which some kind of cult attempted to introduce him to a strange thing called "Lucid Dreaming". We asked our (heavily paid) experts what they thought:

      'Lucid dreaming is [cut here] bad'
      'Do not [cut here] Lucid Dream'
      'This is [cut here] a cult'

      I voted yes also I think its a great idea for people to know. I mean its kinda out there but not to the point where it is fully recognized.. This one guy was doing a study on the Matrix on MTV and he focused on Lucid Dreaming.. Not being a Lucid Dreamer himself he stated "Lucid Dreaming is a direct comparison to the Matrix in everyway possible, Those Lucid Dreamers are the NEO's of the Dream World." Seeker pointed out a great idea, I mean there are enough of of in various states where we should get quite a bit exposure if we all submitted a small artical to the local Newspaper in our area. I like that idea.
