      Something on my mind...

      I have to say that of all the frustrating things one can experience in ones life, the most frustrating is: having a GREAT lucid dream, or just a regular dream, and absorbing the moment, absolutely loving it. But then later in the day when you read what you wrote about the dream, or listen to what you have recorded on the dream, the feeling is never the same. After the initial feeling in the mourning (or night) directly after the dream you can never again relive it... not until you dream again. I am starting to believe that dreams are like this for a reason but I cant put my finger on it at the moment. Opinions?

      I sort of know what you mean, thouge i maybe dont have the right answer.
      Just living the moment of a lucid dream is wonderfull. And when you wake up the day is already saved. But then some days later, when thinking back on the dream and on the moment you were lucid, its just like a vast memory, without the same energetic entusiashm. Ive even taken myself in thinking that it wasnt that realisticly great. Like it wasnt "real". But then i think at how realistic i felt it was there and i believe in what i experienced.

      Ive understood it like this, by experience and after read others comments, that its difficult to bring mental "things" from the dream world to the waking world or waking world to dream world. When in a dream, to try to be logic, or to remember what you did in the waking life the day before is very hard. Its almost like trying to remember what happend in a dream 2 hours after you stood up, after not paying any notice to the dream. But offcourse this can be trained. Many oneironauts can jump from one side to the other almost instantly without loss of the waking or dream conscioussness.
      For them its like winning the jackpot and receiving the whole price, while for an beginner its like just receiving 1/10 of the price.
      So i guess it has to do with the memory of the experience.
      And with practice in lucid dreams and remembering dreams upon waking, wired neuro connections in the brain will be more efficient between the two states. Maybe it will be like remembering what happend two minutes ago in the waking life after a while

      Whenever I think back to a good lucid dream (or a good regular dream for that matter) I always get the same feeling that I did when I had it...

      Is that so different from life? Our memories never hold the same emotion as we had when the events were occuring, because it's not the present, and present is really all you have. The idea is to try and become one with that present. The past is nothing more than memories, which can't be scientifically at all, and the future is just an abstract idea, so you've got to just live in the present. Memories, then, become existance, and past, future, all of these ridiculous, social, human ideas about "time", simply fall away, you're here. Or there.
      Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is mearly energy condensed through a slow vibration, we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, life is only a dream and we are the imaginations of ourselves. - Bill Hicks

      You make a good point mic.

      If all that is true do you believe that dreams can be classified in present past and future?

      BUT... donít you feel that when trying to recall a dream the feeling, at least initially is different. As if you havenít lived it yourself but simply experienced it. I believe that living through a moment and experiencing an instance is two completely different things... what do you think?
