      Collaborative lucid dreaming research project

      How about we start a collective research effort in understanding dreams and lucidity right here on dreamviews? I for one am tired that we still don't understand lucidity and dream recall and all these things. I'm putting my foot down and i'm going to collect whatever data i can find and i could definitely use your help.

      Right now we could be working on understanding:

      Dreams
      Memory
      Lucidity
      Learning
      Consciousness
      And intricate workings of the brain.



      I want to start a workthread or subforum for exactly these things. (what did i miss?)

      I'm just a 21 year old high school student with little to no understanding of how to do science. But i see potential in a collaborative research project like this. I think it is not inconceivable to reach a point where we could carry a stone in science and publish an article considering the wide array of different people and backgrounds that visit this forum.

      Mainly i thought it would be useful to upload reliable data and ideas and peer-review amongst ourselves. I'm looking for suggestions and ideas on how to approach this effectively.

      So, interested? Leave a note and i'll be thinking about how to start-up the project and where to begin collecting data.

      VagalTone opened this new thread 2:30 hours after you openef yours. And when I visited the Youtube there were only *2* views. It had just been loaded. It is ordinaty young guys using a slerp lab to signal when one is lucid dreaming. But the electrodes were too uncomfortable and the dreamer failed...

      Here is VagalTone' s brand new thread...

      Hah, seen it. I have been looking at OpenEEG which is a device that can connect electrodes to your brain and your computer. "Iamcoder" has done some interesting things to for example detect rem sleep in his sleep. You can see brainwaves on the outer layers of the brain.

      Unfortunately, electrodes are limited to outer brain scanning. While it is useful technology for biofeedback and meditation. What is really interesting is deep brain activity and pathways. A few electrodes won't show you that. There's also a lot of static and it is quite complex to analyze data with such a device.

      But yea! Thanks for sharing. It's just that easy to do some research. You need a few skilled lucid dreamers, a hypothesis and a way to measure brain activity. Heck, you don't even need a hypothesis you just need to collect as much data as possible.

      (Which is what i would like to do, build a library of sleep data then build theories on that knowledge and set up hypothesese)
