      I watched Waking Life...again. i studied it completely just as much as Dazed and Confused (mad props to Richard L.) but one Q created an enigma..What if in a gream i woke uo to another dream just like any other false awakening but kept waking up into new ones? What if a cycle began that would never stop? What if a dream becomes a never ending house of mirrors and i am forced to keep waking up into yet another deep trance of dreaming and become forced to ask "am i dead?". What are peoples thoughts on this?

      Well, I don't know about a gream but for a dream I think I've had this happen to a few times when I kept waking up into false awakening . I kept thinking that I was going to be late for school cause. I think I had about 4 false awakenings that night. Near the end for me, just before I wake up, they become really real e and then I get confused. Though, I think that you can't continuously get stuck in a loop hole like that. After awhile you'll wake up.

      but if your dead your dead and their won't be any waking up. So, actually coming to think about it, if your dreaming your body will natually wake itself up. But if your actually dead.. well, then you might be having to ask yourself that question.

      In my longest lucid dream, I had six false awakenings. I became lucid again after each one and I seriously became worried that I was never going to wake up after the 4th or 5th.

      this is a good topic, i mean you could constantly be having false awakenings hoping that you will wake in the next one, you would probably get to a point in which you would give up and accept the dream world as your reality until you are forced out of it, if it happened to me i would feel very sad that i'm stuck in the dream world, not being able to speak to my family IRL, the thought of being stuck there forever is actually quite scary in my opinion, you may have unlimited abilities but still, pretty darn scary

      I agree with lucid seeker on that. I once freaked out as crazy as this sounds, beleiving all life was a dream...I'm in a coma or something..just a thought

      each dreaming period lasts not more than 90 mins (if im not mistaken...).
      eventually, the FA's will stop because the dreaming period has ended.
      if thats the case then i fail to see the problem, unless you are talking on a case where you dont wake up anyway even though you should. that case shouldnt happen but it would be both cool and bad. if i could, i woudlnt mind living in the dream world all my life (or even if im not). after you die it doesnt matter what you have done or was it real or just a dream. enjoy while your life lasts, and in an infinite dream enjoy i will

      We could be butterflies dreaming we are human, or brains in jars playing virtual reality games, or whatever. IMO it doesn't makes any difference - apart from being something weird and freaky to muse about

      But I can imagine the alarm if you got the thought that it was never going to end - its a common feature of bad trips, that makes the worse "I will never come down" - actually some people don't but that's not dreaming - as people have said, you will always eventually wake up, unless you are dead or in a coma. And unless there is a serious psychosis of some sort - I doubt many people would have a problem distinguishing dreaming from wakeing - at least not whilst fully awake with the full power of the rational mind at your disposal.

      Can we really know the truth of our existence? As the Zen koan asks "What is your original face?" There is no answer that can come from the rational mind - but turning the question over and over may help us realise we are not our minds!

      I personally love false awakenings when they happen (too infrequently). The best ever was in a non-lucid when I 'found' some technique for flying, a realisation that was a bit like getting a joke - and then had a FA where the realisation still made sense - and I could still fly.
      It was like: "OMG OMG OMG I REALLY CAN FLY OMG OMG OMG!"

      It can happen, but it will not last for more than 2 hours, and that's a maximum.

      yeah, well , there was a time when False Awakenings actually seemed scary to me...just the thought of not being able to trust my reality is pretty scary.

      It can not hurt you in any way, at all. Don't fear something, that can not hurt you. Don't fear the unknown, when it comes to dreaming.
