      Is time inside a lucid dream running at the same speed as time for your real body?

      Say you spent 3 hours real-time dreaming would it be 3 actual hours in the dream or more/less?

      Hi there my friend,
      The answer is actually No, time runs differently inside dreams. A dreamer can actually control the speed and the length of time inside a lucid dream. For example, a 10 minute dream can turn to a 1 day journey inside a dream. But take note that it will be not as detailed as you think. It'll be like a 1 hour movie where the story is about a 10 year imprisonment. Hope this helps and feel free to ask more questions

      People can say time runs differently in dreams because it feels so, as it does in real life, depending on what your doing, Time flys when your having fun right?

      Truth is IT CAN BE PROVEN that time in a dream is the same as real life time.

      In fact it has already been proven by LeBerge through lucid dreaming and using eye signals to relay a time frame.

      So dream time and real time are the same they can just feel different, but if you took the time to count out 10 seconds in a lucid dream, it will be the same 10 seconds in waking life

      It is scientific proof

      Both answers are true in a way.

      Yes, there is a 1:1 correlation as LaBerge proved with the eye movement test. The reason people can have a one minute dream that seems like it lasted a lot longer is the same reason movies can cover years in an hour and a half. Compression. Transitions from one scene to another that imply a lot of time in between without that time actually elapsing.

      True but that zooming through time in a instance as he discribed it applies to non lucid dreams, in lucid dreams time is virtually the same,

      With exception to some lucids where you go in and out of being lucid or semi lucids where your conscience mind is not fully aware or in control. At that time it can still fly very fast.

      For example: You have a non-lucid dream and through the back ground in the window it went day to night within a couple seconds. When your not lucid your logic sense is not clicked on, therefore you just assume a day went by, rather then saying "hey just changed night to day in a couple seconds." Which is what the response would be in a lucid point of view.

      Hmmm that does seem to be true. Ive only had 8 lucids, and some of them were only a second or two long, but now that you mention it they did all seem to progress at a steady rate of time with no jump cuts.

      I may be wrong, but didn't LeBerge later say that time dialation may be possible under certain circumstances? What he showed was that in an ordinary lucid dream time runs about the same as when one is awake, but I don't know that he did the experiment using any of the time dialation techniques I have heard of. Also, I once heard referenced a study done by a team of (German ?) researchers that seemed to indicate the existence of time dialation in a lucid dream. I haven't found much detail on this study though.

      Awwww, i had the illusion of making a lucid dream last forever
      or at least for long periods of like 2 days
      in that way dreaming could kind of become reality, if you get what i mean
      too bad, i am so disappointed =/

      That would be great, I know there are people on here that are able to use lucid dreaming to keep in there dreams much longer than normal

      Most dream last a few minutes but lucid dreamers can push them to 45 min or more

      And you can still jump area to area, move fast, and make day turn to night.

      With those shortcuts in dreaming you can still make things happen quicker than you could in real life.

      Dont be discouraged, Just try to push your brain to its limit and I think you will be very happy.

      You can reenter a dream too, so one could theoretically have a dream lasting for several hours in a night, broken up by periods of dreamless sleep or waking. After all, even our waking life is broken up by periods of sleep, so why should a dreaming life be any different?
