A man hung signs in a gymnasium indicating where not to fish in a different country.
I'd also had lyrica, valium, phenibut and dihydrocodeine yesterday, so that probably destroys any credibility to my paracetamol theory
Yeah this happens to me frequently. Especially when I'm very lightly sleeping. I get dreams within dreams that are often very "normal", often I will dream that I wake up and start my day like normal, and then sometimes I'll wake up from that, realize I was dreaming, but still be dreaming, but be convinced each time, even though I realize I had previously been still sleeping, that this time I am actually awake, and only upon actually waking up for real do I achieve the self-reflection necessary to question whether I am still asleep or not. Anyway though, stuff happens during these dreams that I am unable to determine really happened or not. Sometimes I will have to ask my girlfriend whether something we talked about really happened, for example.Does anyone else get dreams that are so reality-influenced it actually makes you confused about whether something occurred for real or it happened in the dream? This has been happening more frequently for me and it's bad enough that I'll avoid "hey remember that time..." conversations about recent events because I'm not entirely sure if my memory of it is even in the ballpark of what really happened, it's like these dreams don't just parallel the reality but even overwrite the memory itself :S
Wow, that's amazing!I always take dreams seriously though, because they might be telling me something that my waking mind doesn't realize. I heard a story somewhere about a lady who started having this recurring dream about some kind of evil entity growing in her chest, and it turned out that she was in the very early stages of breast cancer. Her dream basically saved her life!
phew, glad to know I'm not going nutso (quite just yet )Yeah this happens to me frequently.. Sometimes I will have to ask my girlfriend whether something we talked about really happened, for example.
Why just speculate? We just casually accept that we're the only animals capable of perceiving the 4th dimension (time) accurately enough to develop abstractions like fate and consequences.I've often wondered about alternate timelines and dreams... Dreams could be glimpses of other timelines, but I think it's something we'll only ever be able to speculate on. It's interesting to think about, though.
Well at this point, I don't know that we could do more than speculate due to the nature of the question. I wonder if anyone is attempting any research into this sort of area though? Or if there is even a way to research something like that?Why just speculate?

Apropos to that, think of how much of our understanding of time revolves around the theories of just one man (Einstein). Isn't it a bit absurd how little we know about a dimension we've been perceiving for thousands of years?
By the same logic, isn't it possible we can perceive parallel timelines but we just haven't had that theory-of-relativity-scale breakthrough yet that can give us a foothold towards a greater understanding of it? I mean think about it, how many people knew time had *anything* to do with gravity before Einstein published his theories? Maybe we're in the same situation with dreams and alternate realities.
It do be like thatThere was a group of Hell's Angels hanging out on the local green. Two policemen started to approach them, then realized that they were outnumbered and said something like, "Wow, there are a lot of you." before giving up and leaving. I found that to be absolutely hilarious.
There could be a way, maybe nobody with the right instruments for this has put it together with the notion that dreams could be part of the stimulus for a sensory organ that's been overlooked. I get the feeling there's some connection with psilocybin here, shrooms make me feel the most dreamlikeWell at this point, I don't know that we could do more than speculate due to the nature of the question.

I've probably mentioned this before, but your trip report about that ("Into the Flood") was actually what inspired me to join Bluelight and start this dream thread, so thanks again.Mushrooms are dreamlike, but ibogaine is by far the most dreamlike in effects. I mean my flood dose experience literally was 3 days of dreams.
