      Other Senses in Dreams

      Is it possible to obtain sense beyond our five senses while dreaming? I'm asking because I realized that my senses while dreaming are heightened. I've noticed that while awake I can recreate sound and pictures I've seen before, but I can't recreate tastes, smells, or feelings. While dreaming I can experience all five senses. An additional question I'd like to ask is: can anyone taste something while awake by just thinking about it? I cannot.

      I can not truly create the taste of salty or sweet while awake, but can stimulate some quasi-taste sensation that is weak. In dreams I often do not have a well developed sense of taste with foods being bland often enough or a little blurry if taste can be blurred. I have no luck with smell in dreams at all. I put very great effort into trying to smell things. Only a few times could I smell something vaguely. In one dream I summoned a skunk and picked him up and made him spray on a wall. I did not smell anything despite trying.

      That is interesting. I never gave it much thought until recently if people differed in the capabilities of their senses. I cannot simulate taste or smell at all while awake, but I can taste and smell fine even better than I normally do while dreaming. But you are able to simulate taste while awake, that is pretty awesome. I just know that something vaguely taste good or bad in an abstract sense but I can't recall the taste until I am actually tasting it. Do you normally DILD or WILD?

      We have more than five senses, we have plenty actually, like sense of time and temperature. maybe we can have even more in our dreams, who knows?

      I've noticed my chromesthesia in a few dreams. Most specifically in a guy I call "The Green-Voiced Man" because the color of his voice is green (an unusual color for a human voice, which is almost always blue or brown).

      No senses outside of the ones I have in waking, though.
