      lucid dreaming book

      would it be a good idea for Dreamviews members to put together a book on lucid dreaming? I think it would be great because it would have all the great information on dreamviews that no one person has.

      Please, if you read this and want to contribute, post, we need as much help as we can get, we really need some people who are willing to contribute some time to write chapters. Thanks in advance.

      It could be a collective book with DV's best tutorials as well as a testimonial section as to what that tutorial did for those people (must be positive of course) and I vote all who chip in, in making this book a reality, receive a dividend of the overall residual proceeds!! yay!

      I think a book of a general section of what lucid dreaming is and then a large seciton of expeirnces with it would be extreamly cool.

      Maybe I could contribute to it I believe I write well. Maybe not writing techniques, but adaptating text to fit the book.

      I could also translate it, but bah we have to finish it first

      If you start one other than the one that's on Wikipedia, I think you should include polls that show which methods seem to work the best, etc.

      Maybe I could receive 50% of the proceeds? On a more serious note...I think Seeker would be the one to give his stamp of approval on this (pre-supposing this is a serious question)

      There you have it...now....

      1. Whose going to have the job of putting this together?
      2. Should this be announced officially on the board?
      3. What publishing company is going to publish this book?
      4. Supposing this book is published and distributed on an international level, how will the royalties be split? And to whom should they go to? (I vote charity)
      5. Should we take a poll on which are the best techniques to put into the book?
      6. Techniques are great, but if you're going to have a book is has to be more than a few pages of techniques...so what all would the rest of the book comprise of?

      This is a really great idea, but I think the mods/admins should play a major role in the contributing factor and the development of this book.

      Well I think that the book should contain many of the good dreamviews techs that the members created, maybe some sleep patern stuff, foods that help induce lucid dreaming, and some other stuff

      Also a lot of stories and personal experiences and hints from the membership.

      A book of techniques is kind of a dull read, however if you spice it up with some lucid adventures to give it a personal feel....

      It needs to connect to the readers on a personal level, else, it is no different than a school book.

      I would love to take a nactive role in the development of this book

      what about elaborating a project for the book? such as the following one (which includes my personal ideas)

      Lucid dreams - concept
      Scientifical research
      Methods of attainment
      Benefits and uses
      so what can you guys think of?

      I agree, good ideas so far Kromoh I think Seeker makes a great point as well regarding putting in DV members personal lucid experiences. Well what's next?

      ok heres how I think it should go

      start off with some intro, maybe a few lucid experiences to make the reader want more, then the method, after the method write an example of someone using the method, then some stuff about regular dreams and some stuff like b6, then alot of lucid expirences and regular dreams when you ate a bannana or took b6 pills, I should start pming people who wrote techs, get a lot of stuff from the tututial section and dream control tuturials

      stuff we will probably use: wild, fild, the guitar one, reverse blinking, kromohs dream control, serveral diferent wild techs, deild, mild, wbtb, the taking a cold shower thing in the morning helps lucid dream thing by born 2 kill I think, and note all the members that put together the book in the back

      edit: pm me if your in to make the book so I can make a list of people who will help

      good, lets see, we need at least one person to write it, and several people to collect info, you should probably find at least 3 good dream views techs

      I analyzed the tutorial section thoroughly and decided to put the top three techs (that are official DV tutorials) into two separate categories. The first category being the most/best/highest ranking votes. (Tutorials with under two votes were automatically disqualified from inclusion in this category seeing as the author could of have easily voted for his or herself) That being said...

      ---------------------------------------------------------

      The highest ranking official tutorials are as follows:

      Gold - "Lucid Dreaming Quick Start Tutorial" - Seeker
      3 votes - 5.00 average

      Silver - "Clairity's Wild Technique" - Clairity
      4 votes - 3.80 average

      Bronze - "Hypnosis Induced Lucid Dream (HILD)" - Gothlark
      5 votes - 4.75 average

      ---------------------------------------------------------

      The second category will be arranged by viewcount. The more views, the more popular and interesting the technique. The most viewed techniques are as follows:

      Gold - "Lucid Dreaming Quick Start Tutorial" - Seeker
      views: 82,092
      viewcount recorded on 9/15/07 at 2:30 pm GMT CST Time

      Silver - "Wake-Initiated Lucid Dream" - Gestalt Alteration
      views: 47,444
      viewcount recorded on 9/15/07 at 2:30 pm GMT CST Time

      Bronze - "Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams (MILD)" - Gestalt Alteration
      views: 39,561
      viewcount recorded on 9/15/07 at 2:30 pm GMT CST Time

      ---------------------------------------------------------

      If you want help...and this IS really going to happen, I vote this be announced publicly, made sticky even. Your move, sugarglider.
