I had a lucid dream once and I tried experimenting how my brain would process the setting by bolting through door after door, opening them and discovering what was behind them

I used to have this reoccurring dream, where I'm flying a biplane over my block, pretty low to the ground but high enough to be just over the houses. Once I reached a certain house, I automatically jump out of the plane, and fall a bit slower than normal. Once I hit the ground, I wake up.

Have you ever had a dream and in that dream you fall asleep and begin to dream again I called that in inception dream. I think I may make a movie about it.

When i am very tired and i go to sleep i have bad dreams, i would say nightmares it's like im going to sleep, i wake up in in my dream, but i am still at the same place where i slept, but suddenly the place where i am, is litellary the same place where i was, but i am scared of it, and try to wake up everytime, i know when i am dreaming that, i wouldn't call it lucid dreaming i would call it a nightmare where you try to get out, where you can't move much, but see things, and still, everytime i am trying to wake my self up of getting away there, but it mostly happens when i am really tired

Peoples eyes move fast in (REM) when ther sleeping is because in your dream your looking around as if your actually ther inside your dream as if that’s reality. when in actual reality your just sleeping. and you can tell your dreaming cus if some one looks at you your eyes while ur sleeping your eyes will be moveing fast while your In your dream looking around in another completely different universe, damn I hope that made sense...

"You can actually see this happening while watching people sleep, like I usually do." Two interpretations: One - Michael watches people sleep. Two - Michael sleeps like regular people. Either way, I'm laughing so hard.

When I was a kid, after waking up in the morning to go to school, I often slept again after shower, and dreamed that I was dressing up, taking breakfast, taking the bus and going to school... only to wake up one hour later with my mother screaming, YOU'RE LATE FOR SCHOOOL!

Commander Spyke (20 days ago)
Whenever I have nightmares, I always wake up with the urge to go to the bathroom. So I think my body is giving me these unpleasant images so I get the hell up and go! It's so consistent with me that whenever I'm able to identify that something is wrong while dreaming I will stop everything in the dream, derailing the dream and making my actions quite lucid. Then usually waking up shortly after :D

I dreamt about having a lucid dream 3 times already, but it wasn't a lucid dream. I just dreamt I was having a lucid dream, but I wasn't in control of the dream. Sounds really inception like haha 😂

I've had reoccurring dreams laced with things that actually happen to me for years now and it's strange. Part of me thinks it's training or something but some of the predictions are kind of... Out there. Certain lines from books I've never read, games I've never played until I play them and realize I've seen it before in a dream, conversations with people I didn't realize were even still in my city, and even predictions of disasters and news reports I couldn't have known would happen. I don't realize it until the memory clicks and it's a full on dejavu moment, but they happen so often that I've become accustomed to trying to break the predictions. I've only managed to break it once and it felt kinda useless, like it didn't really change anything but the words I said, but it was interesting. Brains are a strange little body part. Edit: I can't spell apparently.

Dreams tell you the future. Also if you sleep alone in the wilderness and a wild animal passes by you wake up in an instant. If the animal is close, but you have not seen it because of darkness you will never fall asleep. You have to leave the place far away:)

1:04 you can actually see this happening if you watch people sleep (Like I Usually Do)

I remember maybe one dream per month. Most days of the month I wake up feeling like I didn't dream at all. The last time I remembered my dream must have been like three months ago. Au contraire my girlfriend can remember all of her nightmares distinctly in great detail.
