      White noise/radio experiment

      ok im not sure if this has been done before but i couldnt find a topic about it on the first 3 pages. now the suggested experiment is a way to help attain lucidity. when you go to sleep try leaving your radio, television, or anything that makes noise on. leave it soft enough that it wont keep you awake but loud enough to hear. then post if the voices effect your dream or not.\

      if you care to take part in this experiment please feel free to post your results

      Suggestion - white noise is quite painful, because certain frequencies appear louder to the human ear than others.
      A better version is 'grey noise', or I could make you a mixture of noises that I use for napping that isn't so painful.

      It's got to do with something called 'psychoacoustics'

      You could use brown or pink noise instead, as they are "smoother" than white noise.

      When I leave my TV turned on, I usually have FAs in which I go to turn off the TV, until I wake up for real, I've achieved a similar effect when I leave a bright lamp turned on.

      Personally it's really hard for me to go to sleep with any noise at all. I'm surprised sometimes that I even go to sleep with the sound of the clock ticking, but of course I get used to that. But any noise that is above the silence I experience as I'm drifting off to sleep startles me awake and it sucks.

      Pink noise only gives you one side of the spectrum. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colors_of_noise for info on the noise types.

      What I'm talking about is either grey noise, or mixing brown and blue noise with a little bit of white noise (this approximates grey noise)

      You can get a sample of what I use here: http://polynap.grelly.com/?page_id=7
      Select the 'sample noise' download, at the end of the download links

      My Experiences.

      I fall asleep so much with the tv going. I find it funny sometimes at the things I'll say or do when I don't realize that I've fallen asleep. Like once I fell asleep to the soothing sound of my boyfriend on the telephone. Yes I was actually talking to my boyfriend on the phone and I fell asleep a few times. I'd wake up and continue talking like I hadn't even fallen asleep. I can't explain it there. My fiance now says that sometimes I'll fall asleep to the tv and I'll be saying something but he can't make out the words. I've fallen asleep numerous times and actually continued the same thing I was watching on tv in my dreams. Weird huh? I've never actually had a lucid dream from having the tv on when I fall asleep. I might try it with the radio and see how that works. Am I supposed to have an actual radio station or just a background noise?

      Sincerely Lisa Marie
