      Thumbs down

      Well i had an extremely vivid dream that went for 5 days, but i slept for 12 hours. I realised i was lucid on the 2nd day, then had all the fun i could have, playing with my dream friend, chasing snakes off islands and failing, anything i could imagine but i didn't have enough time to do it all. On the 5th day i destroyed France and a couple of other places (Greenland, Iceland) and lots of other stuff.
      To go through everything that happened would be like writing a 15 chapter novel.
      But by the end of the 5th day i thought i may have actually been sleeping for the whole 5 day period, so i forced myself to wake by making everything really unrealistic and closing my eyes and saying, "WAKE NOW". And i woke up.

      This was one of the best experiences of my life. And i sat thinking about it and memorising what had happened.
      Probably the weirdest thing was i never tried to find my dream guide.

      I will try to make a list of all the things i did, but i did LOTS, HEAPS, so much you wouldn't dream of. Bad joke i know.

      Just thought i'd let people know.

      That sounds amazing! During the 5day dream-period, did you sleep, or were you awake the whole time? If you were awake the whole time, did you end up feeling sleepy after a while? hehe, just curious.

      Well for some reason when it got dark, yes the sun moved and it went light to dark almost like real life, i felt tired. As soon as i hit the sack i woke in the morning still knowing i was lucid dreaming.

      The lucid dream really, really, really cool. Words can't describe how cool it was.
      It was like realising you were god..

      He is my brother and he is lying. His story has changed about 4 times. Me for one, I don't know about everyone, but if you had a dream that was REALLY this long you would be itching to write it down. I told him there would be big chunks missing, and I bet if he tried to write it all down, that would be the case. But he is saying every single little detail was in there, such as walking to the bathroom, taking a leak and eating breakfast. He said that every single spoonful of cereal was eaten. Who else finds this impossible?

      I'm not entirely sure, but wouldn't that mean you're speeding up your subconcious in the real world? I mean, if I had a Lucid dream that was that amount of time, wouldn't that mean that my brain is speeding through everything within the 12 hours I slept? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm just saying

      anyways, Good luck with that dream, laconix. You're lucky to have it last that long. Is there a way that you did it? (Even though I don't think you knew anyways lol)

      Hey, what was that for? What have we done to you?
      Never mind, next time I&#39;ll try to destroy a big country too. But I&#39;m more ambitious, I think I&#39;ll do the States.

      I&#39;ve actually had dream go the span of 3 days in 5 hours real time.

      I actually woke up confused wondering where exactly I was and how I got there (in my bed), and it took a good 5-10 seconds after waking up for it to kick in that it was all a dream.

      Though there were chunks of time missing. It was like

      Day 1-morning-afternoon-night
      Day 2-afternoon-evening-night
      Day 3-morning-night

      Each time frame a very long played out (or what seemed) event. Each event seemed roughly around 1-3 hours long. There were also smaller ones in between as well, all of which one lead to another, which really gave a false feel for time.

      It was amazing overall.

      @tommo, My story hasn&#39;t changed once, just because stuff that happened on Day 1 didn&#39;t also happen on Day 2 and 3 an so on doesn&#39;t mean i changed my story. I mean i realised i was lucid on day 2 so i did what i wanted for the following days.

      @mollyrulz9999, I dunno i think it had something to do with focusing on lucid dreaming all the time then i stopped on the day i had my 5 day lucid, i just didn&#39;t really think about lucid dreaming. Other then this Subliminal Message ,thing i have on my computer BrainBullet, which i run constantly when i&#39;m on my computer.

      @Folqueraine, Hehe, I dunno but i just felt like doing something highly destructive. And you know, France was right there...

      Wow, I haven&#39;t had a dream that didn&#39;t go hand in hand with real time. I would like to see what it feels like to have one like that. It was really good that you were able to hold onto the realism and yet wake up when you wanted to. That is some good control.

      I don&#39;t have any references handy on this one. I believe Laberge addresses the matter in "Exploring ..."
      But it&#39;s worth pointing out that dream time and real time are very close indeed. This has been
      scientifically proven on many occasions.

      Sometimes it seems like a dream lasts a very long time. It&#39;s due to the discontinuous nature of the
      story line. Just like in a movie, if the scene changes and day becomes night, we get the sense that
      12 hours have past, even though only a few seconds have. Dream have the same affect and wr are
      often fooled into thinking a long time has transpired.

      THANKYOU DrTechnical&#33; This is exactly what I was telling him but he wouldn&#39;t believe me.
      Oh and Pastro, someone made a thread for BrainBullet here . Make sure you use the settings in the first post in that thread. They work the best&#33;

      Dreams are conceptual thought. Time is irrelevant to the actions that happen in a dream. Conceptual thought operates far swifter than physical actions and events, thus you can spend just about any amount of "time" in a dream. Perhaps dream an entire life time within one night. You will merely wake up with the memories of that entire lifetime.

      Okay, I&#39;m going to go write that thread finally...

      Time in dreams = Time in real life. So 5 days in the dream is 5 days in real life. LaBerge even proved this.

      So, yes, it is impossible to have a 5 day long dream. You THINK it lasted for 5 days. But it didnt. Its impossible.

      I don&#39;t know about you but in all of the 4/5 lucid dreams I&#39;ve had, even though they were pretty pathetic dreams in terms level of lucidity and length but I could definitely put a time to them. I wouldn&#39;t be able to "think" I had a 5 day long dream but instead it was only an hour or two. So in response to MoD, if laconix thinks the dream went for 5 days, then that&#39;s how long it went for.

      Do I understand how he had a 5 day long dream in one night......

      Nup, ain&#39;t got a clue

      but I don&#39;t believe he&#39;s making it up, or that he thinks it was 5 days long but in actual fact it was an hour. I&#39;ve talked to people who have had YEAR long dreams, and they aren&#39;t the kind of people who would bullsh*t about that.


      And even if MoD is right and laconix only thought it went for that long, well then I&#39;d love to have dreams where I think its lasting for years

      I wonder if it&#39;s possible for him to REMEBER a five day dream? That is, his subconcious created those memories, but he never "experienced" them? Analogy; say I want to build a pyramid in my dream. I start with the first stone, and then my mind shifts the scene to the last stone, and inserts memories for all the stones in between? Kinda farfetched, I know, but still. Either way, I don&#39;t see how it would change the experience. Congrats.

      PNG thats what I believe, he just thought that the rest in between happened when it really didn&#39;t. Not that this wouldn&#39;t be cool and all, but he said that he actually experienced each step of the 5 days, which I think is impossible.

      Anyway time is subjective....so if you think it lasted 5 days, then it lasted 5 days...for you. You are your own reference....

      I like what you have to say about time being irrelevant to the actions that happen in a dream.This is the only thing I can think of that explains something that has really baffled me about dreaming and time.Take this non lucid dream I had a while ago as an example of what I&#39;m getting at:

      I&#39;m a passenger in a car with friends and are destination is a house party. When we arrive I find we are in a big room with a swimming pool. I go through a door and now I&#39;m without my friends in a crowded bar setting with a big dance floor and party light atmosphere. I see this DC about 10 feet away from me and he is with a group of friends. He has a lighter in one hand and a firecracker in the other. He lights the fuse and he tosses it my way. Bang&#33; the cracker goes off loud and instantly wakes me up&#33;

      At the same time my girlfriend is in the kitchen doing dishes, just across from my bedroom and she had just accidently dropped a glass on the floor causing it to smash quite loud. Now what has always baffled me about this is how did my mind know that a glass was going to smash and create a scenerio before hand?? I mean it would seem to take a few seconds for the time it took me too enter the bar room, spot this DC, see him light the firecracker, a sec or two for the fuse to burn and then Bang. But the sound of the glass smashing in the other room would seem a fraction of a second. You see what I&#39;m getting at?

      When you say dreams are conceptual thought and that thought operates much swifter than physical actions and events, it helps me to explain events like this. What do you think?

      Well, here&#39;s the link to that topic, for more on it all:
      http://www.dreamviews.com/forum/inde...howtopic=44723

      However, precognition of any sort or any such events wouldn&#39;t be "explained" by conceptual thought. No matter how fast one were to dream or how slow a plate were to fall - until the sound of it crashing on the floor actually occurred in the waking life, you wouldn&#39;t gain knowledge of it unless you somehow gained it precognitively beforehand.
      So I wouldn&#39;t say conceptual thought has much to do with the above, though I think you have the right picture of it in general.

      Not that this wouldn&#39;t be cool and all, but he said that he actually experienced each step of the 5 days, which I think is impossible.[/b]
      Conceptual thought, once more. It can be 5 days or 5 years - the events of dreams appear at the speed of memory and thus all dreams we have depict different amounts of time but in exact detail, always; the only difference is how well we recall them when waking up. The better recall, the more detail, the longer it might seem to some.
