When I went to college (and considerably beyond my college years) I smoked a lot of pot. But after a while my regular connections got married and had kids so I decided to quit. The one thing that really struck me as amazing about quitting--aside of how easy it was to do--was how absolutely vivid my dreams became. I usually remember them anyway, but after I quit...WOW. As soon as I closed my eyes and started fading off, I'd start dreaming. And they were vivid. I've heard that people rarely dream in color, but I did all the time. I still remember one specific instance where I had a dream in which I was looking at a yellow wall, and I couldn't get over how vibrant the yellow was. It was really, really neat.

I can't recall ever dreaming in black and white. I dreamed last night that I had to sail a boat to Lowe's (the home improvement store) and I still remember the color of the wood on the boat.

I'm told the people who lived in the era of black and white tv used to dream in black and white frequently.

Overall though, I'm not sure I'd want to remember most of them.

I always have really vivid, complex dreams and remember them for a few minutes after waking. The only ones that stick with me long term are the ones I find psychologically or emotionally striking in those first few minutes. Those rare ones I remember all day at least, and a few I remember for years.

Lucid dreams are the shiat. Even better is when you conjure up drugs that don't even exist, like "green gargoyle", administered to you by an indigenous South American shaman and your perception of reality, as tenuous as it was, is just absolutely shattered so hard that you're afraid to sleep for a few days after that because time isn't even real and you saw the singularity.

My dreams are completely normal situations like eating lunch.

Yesterday I dreamt I was looking at a map of the fantasy novel I'm currently reading, and it looked just like Europe. That's what I consider a "trippy" dream.

/kind of impressed that my mind can reproduce a map of Europe while I'm sleeping

or maybe I was just slightly more keen to that whole "sleep is a DMT trip" fact for that night...

Lucid dreams are a higher level of conciousness, so when I have them, I'm already in the process of waking up. And it's never a 100% level of control, it's just more than regular. Plus, they just gets nuts. It's "I'm gonna wake up in 10 seconds, do something wild and illegal, quick!".

I once had a dream where I lived an entire life in it. For about 10 seconds after waking up, I had a lifetime of memories. Growing up, getting married, having kids, and being my wife's side as she died of some disease in a hospital when we were elderly. I was a complete wreck waking up, for the rest of the day I was just off.

The only dreams I remember involve me being shot, or pushed off a tall building.

The only exception was that one dream about me getting laid in Copenhagen. I don't speak Danish, but I did well enough in that dream.
 
2012-04-10 12:55:23 AM
Most of my dreams are just trash. Most of my dreams recur frequently. I'm very unhappy when I remember them.

Usually in the dream I'm either late for school or work. If it's school, then I'm my current age but I'm either in grade school or high school. I'm always lost, always unprepared, I don't recognize anybody, if/when I can manage to find my destination I have absolutely no clue what's going on. It's often misty, foggy, snowy, and/or dark like night regardless of time of day.

Although last night I had a pretty cool dream where I had these strap-on roller skates that I could ride on the highway at very fast speeds. I'd be a klutz with them in real life, but in the dreamland they were both convenient and functional.

I had a really good thing going for a couple weeks where i remembered at least one dream from each night, then it just stopped. Now i'm back to only remembering about one dream a month, like the average person.

I don't remember if i was getting more B6, but you can bet i'm going to try it. It's interesting to wake up and be confused about your surroundings for a moment because you had forgotten all about this reality. Or to simply ponder the dreams you had.
 
2012-04-10 01:04:10 AM
I hate dreaming. Because when you sleep, you wanna sleep. Dreaming is work, you know - there I am in a comfortable bed, the next thing you know I have to build a go-kart with my ex-landlord. I want a dream of me watching myself sleep.

No thank you.

I'd rather not remember my dreams lately.

They've been rather terrifying, on multiple levels; i.e. some of the dreams are scary in the dream, but others are mundane until I realize that it was pretty farked up to be dreaming that shiat in the first place.

Feeling powerless lately, so my dreams have either been ones were I have absolutely no control(scary in dream), or have all the power and am not exercising it wisely (scary upon waking and thinking about it).

//Not a dream interpreter or believer in anything like that, just figure my brain is trying to sort things out as best it can.

I have had full on dreams of music videos for bands that do not exist and they were awesome. Incredible. Old MTV format and everything. Band name, song, even the director. Farked me up.

Other than that, I just dream about dragons and octopi and stuff.
 
2012-04-10 01:11:20 AM
All I see in my dreams are fields of blood.
Hands grasping at the air. The muffled moans of the damned.
Pillars of flame ascending into the sky. A thousand piercing eyes, to each tied a fanged grin.
Broken earth. A cacophony of grinding noise and metallic shrieks.

At the end, I always see one solitary figure, standing as
a pitch-black silhouette to the misery and carnage: Your mother.

I didn't RTFA, but I can attest to B6 improving dream cognizance. I used to really be into lucid dreaming and would take B6 daily along with a ZMA capsule before bedtime to assist with it.

Protip: Do not ingest anything with high amounts of calcium or potassium within an hour before bed if you ever take dream-inducing supplements like ZMA and/or the B vitamins.

I've come to the conclusion that 90% of what constitutes "sense of humor" on Fark is quoting lines from movies.

The other 25% consists of percentage-based jokes where things don't add up.

I almost always dream when I fall asleep reading a book. The dream usually consists of me continuing to read the book. When I wake up and finish the book I am usually disappointed cause the continuance of the book during my dream is way better.

There are a few that have stuck with me because they were so amazingly strange, interesting or emotionally charged. These days, most seem to be forgotten on awakening, though they seem to have "sets", that the characters in my dreams visit over and over again.

nvmac: All of my dreams are about the damn Army. I was in for 8 years.


Ha. I remember being on firewatch in Boot, watching these guys march and salute in their sleep, saying "yes, Drill Sergeant!, No, Drill Sergeant!"

I recall when I started dreaming in German after taking it in college for a bit. They say that's when you know it's starting to sink in.

I have recurring dreams where I'm a zombie killing hero in a post apocalyptic wasteland. It's freaking awesome and I love remembering them.

Last night the entire pacific ring of fire erupted in massive earthquakes that set off tsunamis all over the world, and we were all in a race up the nearest hillside to get away. My race was through a ghetto style suburb, surrounded by gun toting crazies. I made it through alive and helped my friends and it all worked out ok.

/dreams are awesome
//if you have bad dreams, learn how to lucid dream, it's like a safety valve for me. When the aliens start winning and things get bad and it all gets a bit too much, part of my mind reminds me I'm in control, and I turn them into naked blonde girls. And, er, then continue the dream.

Sound like anxiety dreams - maybe about the feeling of loss of control in your life? Just throwing it out there. When I was in worse ways dreams about getting shot were a regular thing for me.

I remember my dreams more often than many of the people I talk to. I tend to have very vivid, detailed dreams, and I do keep a journal of them. Some are funny, some are everyday scenarios, and some are filled with anxiety and/or grief.

For a few years I had a recurring dream that my cell phone was ringing. I would hear it in my sleep (with the ring tone being the opening bars to the Beatles' "Love Me Do"), and jump out of bed, scrambling to try to find the phone. This happened at least half a dozen times over the course of about two years, and then stopped.

I have recurring dreams (although not lately) of walking around unable to open my eyes, and yet, being able to see where I'm going. One of the oddest dreams was about eight years ago: I dreamed that a law came out (Provincial, I think) where everyone had to have one front tooth removed. Didn't matter which one, you just had to get rid of one. Clinics were set up in local schools, much like blood-donor clinics, and you had to go and get a tooth out. No one was particularly upset by this. I went to the local clinic and got in line, and was given a little wee plastic bag with a loop of dental floss and a little wee booklet which described how to go about tying the dental floss around the tooth and yanking it out. I couldn't figure out the booklet, and after mucking around with the floss for a few minutes, I thought, "the hell with this....!" and walked out.

For the most complex, vivid dreams you can remember (and are often lucid), just slip in a nicotine lozenge before you go to sleep.
