Do you dream often? Do you remember them?

    I had a dream last night and was stoked... I only will maybe have one or two a year that I can actually remember having or recall. My friends thought it was weird like I got a sleeping problem.

    Do most of you have dreams regularly that you can remember? Or is it more rare?

    most of the time i do.
    i always try to remember my dreams and then google it for dream interpretation. im kinda obsessed with it.
    Today i dreamt of me playing wii and complaining because i have no mario cd games which is very odd.
    And no, no interpretation this time on the net.

    I dream every time I sleep, even if it's just a half an hour nap.

    Usually very vivid dreams, which sometimes is good if it's a good dream, sometimes not if it's more of a nightmare!

    I especially hate dreams where I'm killed, usually in very violent ways! Also, I almost never have sex dreams - I can have the bits leading up to it or think I'm about to have sex but it never actually gets going before I wake up!

    good topic!

    lately i have been remembering my dreams. generally I remember dreams where I'm having conversations. I also remember every fine detail of those "oh so special dreams" that bois LOVE to have ooh la la

    icon_biggrin.gif

    Oddly enough, there have been a few times where I'd dream of doing something and I'd find myself actually doing it as I wake up. I remember kicking things, punching things, yelling at people to "fuck off!". Once I was dreaming about puking into a toilet, and when I woke up, I was actually lying upright in my bed in the puking position with my mouth wide open! nothing was coming out but I agree that one was pretty fucked up!

    I dream every night, but unless I wake up and consciously try to remember what I was dreaming about, by the time I've finished breakfast I usually can't remember.

    I actually was very spooked about a dream I had last night which was sooo vivid I woke up thinking it really had happened: I was about to marry a girl, we were at the alter and I had to make it stop so I went all "runaway bride" and left the church feeling terrible because it was all payed for and feeling sorry for my "ex-bride".
    I know, I know...before you all jump at me saying that it is the typical "in the closet" dream...I've been out for about 15 years now!
    So weird!icon_wink.gif

    I only remember them if I was awaken abruptly by somebody else or if I went to bed stressed out.

    I have a few dreams a night and I remember at least 2 of them when I wake up. I used to write everything down as soon as I woke up. Some are pretty freaky. Last week my partner woke me up because I was kicking the shit out of him. I was dreaming about giant snakes and they were trying to get my dogs.

    Like the OP, I rarely remember my dreams, and if I do they're really vivid and completely fucked up, haha

    Yes, I dream every night, and I remember every detail too.
    Sometimes, I think it actually happen because they are so vivid and real looking. I tend to write down the more important ones that morning..

    I dream a lot and usually remember them quite vividly. Lately they've been rather intense!

    Same here...I always try to recall them but can't. My roommate has the most vivd dreams and can tell them to me verbatim even down to the color of the shirts people were wearing.

    Hardly ever remember them. I think that's a side effect of smoking weed.

    When I do remember them, you get this 3 minutes confusion after waking up about what's real and what's not, which is kinda funny icon_biggrin.gif

    I have very vivid dreams that feel like im in someone else's body and life like that guy from quantum leap. I do remember them most the time and usually wake up when the person im dreaming as goes to sleep or something happens to wake me up.

    Most of the time I remember the general story-line of my dreams, but they will have holes in them. However last night I had some sort of super vivid dream, I remembered all of it, something with avatars attacking my apartment, but anyways.

    Follow up question...does anyone else ever dream without dialogue, I guess thats to say that there is a story, and action, but there are no words to go along. That happened to me last night and I thought it was kind of weird.

    Also weird, dreaming in languages that you learning, and some of the things that you say/others say are things you have not consciously learned...but they are clearly somewhere in your mind because you are creating them.

    And Inception will forever alter the way i think about my dreams icon_biggrin.gif

    I dream all the time, but generally only remember them when I wake up in the middle of one of them. Some don't make much sense, but love it when it involves sex.

    I'm in the same situation. I hardly ever remember dreaming, much less my dreams' content. Probably remember 4 or 5 dreams a year.


    Most dreams I remember are nightmares. Probably 1/8 are actually happy dreams.

    For some reason I keep dreaming being in school, not knowing where I'm going and running into my teachers from last year.

    I dream often and can usually remember them for about 30 minutes after waking up. Lately I've been dreaming in Japanese, even though I haven't used it in years.

    I dream every night, they are always in color (very rare), and I do remember the exact details when I wake up.

    I actually just wrote one of my dream sequences. I lucid dream most nights and have learned how to remember them when I wake up.

    I'm witnessing the final battle of Atlantis. I see Gods fighting, crazy special effects, and I'm flying around in the mix. I have wings, can make plasma balls and lightning bolts to fight with, and just own the enemy in the battle. I realize I don’t know who the bad guy is, and wonder why I’m fighting at all. I land on a platform in the middle of the ocean and see these two figures, one light and one dark conjuring the battle. They look nervous and are focused on what I’m doing. I get this feeling that the whole dream is a trick to keep me occupied, and I shoot an energy blast at both of them. One of them was like "how can he see us! Get him out of here!" The white platform I was standing on opened up and I got sucked downward into this vortex that lead to complete blackness. Wind and ice hit my face, and I could barely keep my eyes open. The ocean was swirling around me and soon it became like a wormhole tunnel. These two were the most powerful beings I have ever come up against in a dream. They had complete control over the aesthetics of my world. As I was falling I got angry that they had control over me. I never lose in my dreams, and I was getting completely dominated. I started surging from the inside and felt this power growing, until I was glowing green. I turned into energy, and realized that the visual aesthetics of the dream would be my downfall. I let go of what I saw and let my energy and feeling take over. I blasted through the wormhole wall, which was supposed to be impenetrable and existed as a wave of some sort. So I basically broke out of the dream world. I sensed the energy of a whole lot of other energies around me, and realized that I couldn't make sense of anything. I was vulnerable, and needed to get away from all of them. I focused on emptiness, and stretched an infinite void around myself. Then I realized that the void and emptiness were energies within themselves. I went full shield, and was this perfect sphere of green energy in the middle of an infinite void. I could sense the void taking an interest in me, and closing in around me. This brought other energies nearer to me too. I didn't know how to get out of there, so I focused on a skill I had learned in another dream. I opened my eyes in a dream I had been in before where I woke up 7 times and had dug into 7 levels of the dream world. Now I was awake in both realms. And as a wave, I realized that I could exist in both places at once. (This is because of the wave/particle duality of matter. Not sure if you know the theory or not, but it basically says everything exists as matter, and as an electromagnetic wave.) If I focused on the physical realm where I existed as a person, I wouldn't know where I was as a wave, and would disappear. I did just that, and closed off my senses to my energy self, to switch completely back to my physical self in my dream world. In the dream I woke up in, I had to meet 6 other Codys on the way out, each one awake on a different level of that dream. They told me good job, and that I had found a better way to break out of the dream reality than just digging deeper into a dream as I had before, as I had done in the dream they had originated in.

    The next night I decided to break out of reality again. In my dreams if I have an idea it usually works, even if I don’t know exactly the logistics behind it. In dreams it’s not about empirical logic, but more about the feeling underlying the dream. If you believe something, it simply is. So, knowing this, and having my considerable practice in creating my dream worlds, I decided to use infinite and power series from calculus to relate the electromagnetic realm I was in to an image. I was in a place where sight didn’t matter, and I started feeling integration. Infinite integrals just solving themselves, and making sense of the universe I could not understand from the perspective of being a person. When the whole universe equation was solved, I was sitting in a 50’s themed diner, drinking a cup of coffee with all these strange creatures around me. This girl saw me and told me to come with her. She said I looked new, and that she could sense I had broken out of my reality into hers. She said that there are laws that keep humans confined to our universe and that the last person who penetrated another realm from ours was Einstein. She complimented me on using math to make sense of everything, and said that my subconscious was the catalyst that allowed it to work. She also told me that I was in a real place, and that this realm had its own laws as well. We weren’t speaking, but using telepathy, and she told me that all realities are connected in some way or another and that sometimes entities in their respective universes are gifted enough to be able to understand their connections with each other. She said that I was merely a hologram in her universe, and that I would be ousted if found out by the laws governing her realm. She said the laws of every universe think for themselves, and that I had tricked them into believing I was part of theirs. I asked how I was supposed to get there for real, and she said that when I die, my energy will no longer be tethered to my body, or earthly existence. I will be able to grow according to my understanding in this universe and will take my knowledge here into my next life. She said that people with my gift become transient beings who eventually can see and exist in all realities at the same time. I am in my beginning stages but have progressed quite well according to her, given our low status quo in the multiverse.

    So yeah, that's what goes on in my head at night!

    Yup, and they're still weird dreams too. The other night, I glanced at a movie titled "Nymphoid Barbarians in Dinosaur Hell". I dreamed my tribe was being attacked by a 50 foot tall chicken, which exploded in flames after I shoved a giant bottle rocket up its ass.

    I dream about sex every night and then I think about my dreams all day long.

    I am sure I dream every day but usually it's nothing that I remember unless it's something really weird or a nightmare or something like that. I alwyas have strange dreams though when I dream. I may be in a room at someone's house and when I walk through the doorway into another room I'm in a room at someone else's house. My dreams never really make sense nor do they ever really seem to have a point, but there's definitely a few that stand out sometimes.
