ITT: Weird dreams you've had lately.
I actually dreamed last night that I was in Australia, visiting the two blokes from the Foster's adverts in their beach hut. Sure enough, they gave me a Foster's, and I said "cheers, guys"... and then one of them said to me "oh no mayt, we don't say cheers heere. We say 'You little ripper!'"
Quite bizarre... has this dream got any deeper meaning, or have I just been watching too much telly lately?

He sounds like someone doing a fine impersonation of one of the mods of Mindvox. I, for one, enjoyed it.

I often have dreams where I am suddenly weightless and can fly up in the air at will, and stay completely afloat at any altitude that suits me.
I had a dream like that again last night. I was walking along a particular road here in the neighbourhood, and suddenly it was as if I was walking up invisible stairs, until I was probably some two hundred feet in the air and could clearly see my street and my house from above. I just stayed there, suspended in mid-air, until I decided to begin a nose dive to get down to my house.
Wonder what that's all about.

I'm sure this is just a reflection of the sort of person I am, but most of my dreams are very tied down to physics - I can't ever remember flying, and in the classic 'running through treacle' dream lots of people seem to get, mine was due to extreme acceleration (and not treacle).

> the classic 'running through treacle' dream lots of people seem to get
I get that loads. Or the classic limp you have in your dream, where somehow one leg feels longer than the other, which is probably some sort of residual spatial self-awareness in your sleep which stems from you laying on your side with one leg under the other.
Do any of you lads ever have it that you want to say something in your sleep, but it only comes out as some sort of mumble? It seems to happen when I am having a nightmare and I am in the stages of suddenly waking up from it. It probably has to do with your body being completely paralysed during your REM sleep (with the exception of its absolute core functions like breathing or your heartbeat), when your dreams occur, and then waking up more quickly than the amount of time your limbs need to regain mobility.
This pretty much corroborates what I am on about here. It is a self protection mechanism which keeps you from acting out your dreams and hurting yourself in your sleep.

I have a lot of dreams about being a spaceship captain and all sorts like that, but even in a dream where I'm storming a hostile capital ship, all of the people in the dream will be people I know, and almost every negative part of the dream is a realistic one, like my girlfriend dying or my mum telling me she's disappointed in me.

All my dreams as a child that involved being chased or otherwise attacked heavily featured my opening my mouth and attempting to scream, but no sound whatsoever coming out.
|>>|| No. 417752
One of my friends had nightmares for a while where she was screaming but no sound was coming out. And she had a sensation of drowning in her nightmares, and looking up and seeing something that looked like a ripply water surface seen from below.
She was a bit on the esoteric side, and she was convinced that it was the remnants of some sort of past life experience and that maybe in a past life she drowned in a pond somewhere, or was maybe even murdered that way.

Sleep paralysis is a fucking nightmare. It makes the idea of spending a fortnight in a khole sound like a family holiday to the south of France.
|>>|| No. 417774
I used to get really bad sleep paralysis, but it went away completely after I had corrective surgery on my nose and sinuses. If you get it a lot, it might be worth getting checked out for sleep apnoea.
|>>|| No. 417776
Not sure if it's related, but the older I get, the more I have stiff limbs when I wake up. I can move them and all, but they just need a moment to really be back "in working order".
Getting old is utter shit. Whoever invented it should be hanged, drawn and quartered.

I had a dream last night that I was in a submarine visiting the wreck of the Titanic. And then at some point, somehow I just got out of the submarine and started walking around on the ocean floor, with no diving gear of any kind, in my normal clothes. And the submarine pilot was with me and said, "Few people know this, but it's actually perfectly safe to do this". So I said, then why did we take the submarine down here. And he said, "Just so that not many people will know. We don't want the wreck becoming a tourist attraction for somebody on a packaged holiday".

I had a dream last night where I was on a killing platform of a slaughter house it was a big machine that calves were raised up to on a lift then I would pull them on to the top of the machine which was covered in 6" buzz saws (it was a health and safety nightmare). Eventually a calf would step on one of the saws lose its footing as it's foot got sliced and end up being diced and spun by the saws it landed on. The meat would then pass through a feeder into the processing machine below.
It was quite a traumatic vision. Still having burgers for lunch though. YUM YUM!

I am on mirtazapine, and one of the side effects is to have very realistic, and often even lucid dreams.
So last night in my dream, I told a person next to me on a bus that I was perceiving him very realistically because I was on mirtazapine. I then offered him a mirtazapine tablet and said he should try it for himself.
Mirtazapine still turns out to have party tricks up its sleeve after years of taking it.
Also lately, while falling asleep in my bed at night, I experience a state of simultaneously being awake and dreaming. It's as if the lines between the two are blurred.

Dreamt I was a survivor of a nuclear bomb, witnessed the fiery mushroom cloud, and ended up terrified after my house was filled with floating white fallout.
The suddenness and vividness with which the bomb interrupted my otherwise charming dream made me feel like the BFG had blown it into my ear.

Dreamt I kissed a rotting thing and it came alive, when I woke up I felt so empty it was weird. I feel like I've lost something.

Probably should have paid a visit to the Temple of the Nine before you went to bed lad. The quest to cure vampirism is a bit of a ballache.

I sometimes feel that way when performing cunnilingus.

I think I had a dream last night about some sort of dog or other animal biting my leg. So I kicked that dog in my dream, and I must have physically acted it out, because when I woke up this morning, two toes on my left foot looked a bit bruised and were tender all day so that my foot hurt a little everytime I walked a few steps.
I had this happen before when I had a dream about somebody mugging me. I fought back and wanted to punch the mugger in the face, and then I actually in my sleep punched my fist against my bedroom wall. My knuckles hurt for days and looked sore, so that people were asking what happened to my hand, and I said "Oh, I just punched somebody in my dream, that's all".
Maybe I should move my bed away from the wall.

I dreamt of a bed made of meat with a skin blanket and dozens of sucking orifices all over it. Then I woke up. That is all

Think I had a dream where I was eating, I woke up around 1am feeling like I was going to throw up and my stomach was churning. I had ate 10 hours before then.

It's very rare for me to remember my dreams. But I'm sure I must've dreamed about my ex last night since I've been uncommonly miserable today and my thoughts keep gravitating back to her.
It's been over a year, when does this shite end.

I had a dream last night that I was back in school studying for my A levels. And I kept thinking that I wasn't going to pass maths or English because in my dream I suddenly realised that I never even attended the classes for them.
This also occasionally happens when I have dreams about being back at uni. I was a fairly good student and passed nearly all of my exams for my business degree with quite decent marks, but in my dreams, I keep thinking that I failed a few of them or have to retake them, and that I might not graduate at all.
I guess school and uni, and all the studying and the fears of failure are just such fundamental experiences when you are young that they still reside in your subconscious after all these years. I am in my 40s now, so most of school was 30 years ago, and uni 20 years ago.

I'm 39 and graduated in 2004 and often dream I'm in an exam and know no answers at all so sit there writing nothing. Either that or I realise there are three weeks until the end of the semester and and I've done no coursework at all and I reckon I can get it done if I start now. Another is, I've graduated and spent the summer with my parents but didn't pay rent on my student house and left all my stuff there. I wonder whether the landlord threw it away and wonder whether it's worth abandoning my stuff anyway as it might be worth less that the hundreds or thousands worth of owed rent.

I sometimes also still have dreams about my rented room at student hall. I usually dream that I secretly still live there, unbeknownst to student affairs, and so I constantly have to fear being found out.
Another weird dream is then about moving out of that room and into my first flat after uni. When I moved into that flat, for some reason I decided to buy a ridiculous amount of green plants, and so in my dreams now, those plants have really grown and kind of morphed into an indoor forest that has consumed the entire flat.

Don't think there's been any academic research; simply Googling it shows it's a common enough phenomenon there's loads of articles about it, though.
|>>|| No. 418072
How much of an in depth study do you need? If fucking loads of people are taking about it, it's probably common.
Don't be a moon oven.
|>>|| No. 418073
The abundance of articles describing the phenomenon can in itself be considered empirical evidence of its prevalence, you dope.
|>>|| No. 418078
> loads of people are taking about it
Once again, explain the 'phenomenon' with emperical evidence
Back up your statement of loads of people, provide verbatim
Explain 'it' in your context

As a spokesperson for nobody else, how can they have an opinion if by your definition they don't exist to give one.
