Does anyone have any dreams they remember distinctly from their childhood?

OP had a dream where he traveled the world collecting really messed up and scary versions of Pokemon.

This is a good thread

Once I had a dream about watching tv all day. Yeah… All the surreal stuff would be happening on the screen, but I could always look around and see I was really on the couch and safe in "reality". Nothing in the room was distorted or off, just the things on the tv

I wanted to post in this thread for the longest time so I'm going to do it now. Dreams are my greatest artistic inspiration for many years so I would love to share.

The earliest dream I can remember involved me playing with wooden toys in my aunt's house, the roof then flies away revealing a firey red earth vortex sky with meteors & volcanoes shooting out everywhere. This is unusual to me since I almost never see my aunt even back then. Another extremely early dream of mine involved a white staircase in a very ghostly, barren room with lighting similar to the picture attached to this post.

Some other distinct ones included me surfing on telephone wires only to fall down at what looked like the entrance to a maze made of hedges, a visible green monster is slowly approaching me & I can't move, it doesn't walk far at all before the dream ends thankfully. Last one I'll share involved me exploring a blood forest outside my house & the moon was replaced with a red face, it might sound like a nightmare, but it was soothing to me.

i had this dream about a statue of cid the sloth after i saw ice age for the first time. it was in a run-down mall, and my mom was taking me to the garden store that was part of it. idk what malls are like for yall's areas, but where i grew up there was a mall with lots of sculptures everywhere, which i think is where my kid brain got the concept. anyways, this cid statue comes to life and beats my mom to death with a coffee mug while i have to sit back and watch, and that was the point where i woke up.

still probably the weirdest dream i ever had and it literally caused me to have a fear of sloths. i even had a panic attack at the zoo when i was around 9-10 because there was a sloth exhibit. everyone laughs at me for it cause the fuckers still creep me out

Hello, /yume/.

I seem to have been having a reccuring theme in my dreams, which is they almost always happen under ground.
Not a specific location underground, but just below the surface.
For example, underground military bunker, underground storage facility, underground floors of my former school(which dont exist),
underground mall floors, long wide underground concrete corridors, and a few more which i cant currently recall.

What does this mean? Why underground?

Dreams are often influenced by your real life surroundings. You've probably watched/played/read/saw something containing an underground building recently. Or you just live in a basement.

It could also be some association of yours.
To give an example, in one period of my life I would constantly draw a particular cartoon character because of her nice and simple design.
In a dream totally unrelated to this, I was a stalker that, in the dream's narrative, kept numerous sketches of the woman he was obsessed with. As a detective came and uncovered the creepy sketchbook, my mind understood the "female that I draw a lot" part and filled it with drawings of the aforementioned character, replacing the woman from the story (who was of a different appearance, at that). So maybe the underground replaces something of your own by association?

It's a subject that fascinated me in Junji Ito's short manga story "long dream," and something I've read a lot of interesting stories online about, but I had never really experienced it until about a year ago, after a long time of experimenting and trying to force one to happen to me. The story in this paste is a record of that dream I posted to another forum. It was extremely vivid and frankly scary as fuck and made me abandon my attempts. Have you ever had a long dream? Or maybe one that was fragmented and you kept going back to after waking up?

I think I had one tonight where I kept waking up into dreams. I only remember bits and pieces, but I woke up and went to my bathroom and was really afraid. I think I spent like 10 minutes looking in the mirror and pinching myself to make sure I still wasn't dreaming. I'm still not sure honestly. Everything has that "haze" that dreams have.

Not really, but I had this one time where I was in sort of a boss fight and every time I died, I'd get booted out of the dream due to the sudden fear of dying (because it felt real)
Luckily, though, I was sleeping in such a position that the sun wasn't shining in my eyes, so I could force myself back and retry the exact same battle but with more knowledge

I had a dream where it involved a same universe as Yume Nikki.


I was in a blue path surrounded with green trees, with the floor being similar to that of blue chunks of unknown substances, I walked in it, and saw Madotsuki, I touched her, ended up in the spawn, I saw her skin changed to bleach white, I touched her again and saw a broken Madotsuki with messed up limbs, and had a face like Monoko, It was so disturbing, it WOKE ME UP.


And this is a true dream.

There's something that's recurring in my dreams every now and then. Maybe once a month, once every two months, I don't actually know the frequency. I'm only aware of it because it happened repeated times. Anyway, what I'm talking about is that sometimes I have dreams where I can't open my eyes no matter how much I'd force myself. Sometimes I'd be able to open them just a bit and see ever so slightly, but it's very uncomfortable. Actually it's more like being unable to see anything with my eyes facing forward because of my eyelids, but I can see ever so slightly if I turn my gaze down.

Does this count as sleep paralysis? I don't think it does, I'm not technically awake. Has this happened to anyone else?

I know that you posted this months ago, but I'm holding out hope that you are lurking.

Are there any reoccurring themes in your nightmares? It's very possible that you have unresolved trauma.

 No.2465

Let me rephrase since you can't remember the nightmares. The fear when you wake is always the same, right? Is it the fear of your own life or something else?

 No.2494

>>2396
Be absolutely sure you are really ready to remember this, it will traumatize you. Nightmares are one of the scariest things a human brain can experience. If you aren't 100% sure you're ready, wait until you are to try.

I'm not saying you're not ready (at all), I'm just saying you should only remember this if you're 100% sure you're ready and 100% sure you want to.

 No.2495

I disagree. Nightmares are terrifying when you're in them, but when you look back at them knowing they are not real they can often seem pretty tame, or even ridiculous.

I find nightmares to be really thrilling experiences, actually.

Which is funny because I'm pretty cowardly when it comes to everything else.

Have your dreams ever shifted to looking like Yume Nikki or a Yume Nikki fangame? Mine do sometimes, and I just woke up from a dream such as that.

(This first bit takes place at a playground in an apartment complex I lived at when I was much much younger) My brother had just got done throwing an axe at a girl at full strength, but he "didn't mean to kill her". However, it DID kill her, and the group she was in replaced her instantly with this princess-like girl. Long story short, she turned out to be an asshole with malicious intent towards us, and my brother and I decided we wanted to put her in an awful place. So some doors appeared, and I bet you've played enough Yume Nikki to know where this was going.

Now this is where the dream started looking like Yume Nikki. The first door I went through led me to this very light, sort of pastel blue, reception room. The guy was walking in place, right next to this odd looking door. The dream had begun to take place in third person, just like an RPG Maker game, so I could sort of see into the next room from above. I understood right away that I was in a hospital.

When I went through the door, there was no blood or anything, just a bunch of children with their brains visible. The whole brain visible from the top of their head. I initially thought something was wrong with them, but I heard a voice saying that they had been cured, so I tried interacting with them. While their heads seemed to move as I went about the room, as if they were watching me, I initially had no success in interacting with them, just like in Yume Nikki. However, once I tried interacting with specific characters enough times, they decided to hide inside these curtains around their beds. Every single one of the children did this.

There was one girl, though. She had always been inside the curtains to her bed, peeking out from time to time. The other patients appeared to be a little afraid of her. However, I decided to pull up a chair and dip myself under the curtains too, and I had a very one-sided conversation with her.

And that's when I woke up! Sometimes my dreams do that, and turn very Yume Nikki-like, despite me not having played the game in quite a while. Anyone else's dreams sometimes do this?

Not exactly.
1 (dream) min = 60 (dream) seconds => 1 (real) year = 31536e3 (real) seconds [average for 365 days a year]
8 (dream) years = 252288e3 (dream) seconds => 1326025728e5 (real) seconds = 1534752e3 days = 11680 years.

If we are to take time dilation into consideration, taking the dream time as the proper time, and working algebraically, the speed at which you should move to achieve this kind of time distortion would be the speed of light, which is impossible since no object with mass can even reach the speed of light and the threshold for non-massive "objects" is the speed of light, therefore this time distortion cannot be possible for as long as you have mass.

Did a small correction as I noticed an error.

Stephen LaBerge actually studied this with lucid dreaming subjects giving eye signals that could be picked up by EEG. It took them more or less exactly ten seconds to count to ten in a dream. Subjective passage of time can occur where you might get the impression that you've been dreaming for a long time, but that's a matter of convention like a jump cut or fast forward footage in a film.

 No.2491

That's interesting. I've heard of subjects that received a hit in the neck (they fell from the bed or something like that) and were dreaming they were being decapitated, making it seem like because the subject was hit the brain associated the outside stimuli with in-dream actions. In other words, in that small span of time they constructed a whole dream.
Then again you'd need more studies to corroborate this.

I dreamt that I was sitting outside Runnymede station (A subway station in Toronto, which faces a small park) at night, while using my laptop for some purpose. I was on a picnic bench beside a mailbox. A strange, lanky man with short hair approached me, and began to converse with me in a gibberish language made up of pops and clicks, as well as occasional nonsense words. Although now in the waking world I don't recall having seen his face before then, it seemed to me in the dream that I was familiar with this fellow and his habits. Thinking it would be funny, I decided to reply back with pops and clicks of my own, despite not understanding what he was saying. After a bit of conversation, he stopped talking, let out an "ah!" and smiled, before moving forwards and stealing my laptop, running off into the night. I shouted "Hey! This guy's stealing my fucking laptop!", and gave chase. I noticed that he walked in a strange way, as though he was either mentally deficient or had shit his pants. I chased him across the small park over to the road, and after chasing him down the road for a bit (while occasionally getting a hold on the laptop, before it was fruitlessly yanked away), he threw the laptop back at me, which I expertly caught. I heard my Dad say "Nice catch!", which was odd, as I hadn't seen him in the dream. I then decided to make my way back home, but instead decided to try and teleport home. Just as I teleported, I woke up.

As you almost definitely know if you're here and reading this, the most well-known way to trigger a lucid dream is to realise that you're dreaming (DILD.) Aside from the run-of-the-mill reality checks like your hands, clocks and mirrors, I've read that keeping a dream journal can allow you to recognise recurring themes and events in your dreams. These are 'dream signs', and I guess the utility of them must be to trigger reality checks, or let you realise outright that you're dreaming. The stuff I mentioned above – like hands and clocks – these are common dream signs, ones that happen in everybody's dreams due to the parts of the brain that shut down during sleep, etc.

What I'm interested in are /yume/'s uncommon dream signs; recurring details in your dreams that you don't think everybody gets. Post them!

Additionally, what are some dream signs that you think everybody must get (due to the brain's weird power re-allocation during sleep) that nobody really talks about or are relatively undiscovered?

Beggars can't be choosers. DILD is for the type of people who like to shove dildos up their ass, okay? WILD is easier to do because it requires far less preparation and conditioning. WILD also produces far better results. The dreams you have from WILD are more vivid and you feel more in control of them. This has to do with brain chemistry. It's easy to slip back into a normal dream world with DILD, but that's not the case for WILD. I'm sick of seeing all of these homosexuals telling people who are naive and just getting into lucid dreaming that DILD is the best option when it isn't.

Hindered movement.
Whenever I attempt to run in my dreams I move as if I were underwater. All of my limbs are slow and I have to actually concentrate on pushing my legs from the ground to accomplish anything at all.

Apparently it has something to do with your actual physical body lying still and failing to send movement signals, so, of course, it doesn't feel like you're moving in the dream either.

Another one, though I'm not sure how easily you could go about recognising it while dreaming, is things happening exactly the way you expect them to. Say, you walk into a room that's dark and spooky and you think to yourself that there's definitely a monster in there. A second later, some shitty cryptid makes itself known through its shriek. Or you're having a conversation with someone, you say something stupid, and expect a certain reaction - and they do exactly what you predicted. It's basically the same dream manipulation you use when lucid, but subconsciously. And if you're a pessimist, it quickly turns the dream into a nightmare, annoyingly.

There aren't any obvious signs that would set me off, so I just get into the habit of performing the nose block test in day to day situations where something weird or upsetting happens.

So, lately, I've been finding it hard to differentiate what I do in a dream and what I do when I'm awake. It gets to the point of me constantly lacking a certain awareness I think lots of people have. I have some small form of MADD, but I don't think that really has to do with it. My memory's been getting really messed up, to the point of me finding it hard to remember what happened a few hours ago. For the most part, I can't remember my mornings at all.

Anyone else struggling with this? How do you deal with separating what's real and what's not?

 No.2477

Have you tried keeping a journal? It might help you remember what you did and what day you did it. Even if you don't remember what you did today try writing things down and it might come back to you. When I started keeping a journal and a dream journal I noticed that I could remember both real-life events and dreams way better.

Are you very active? Do you exercise your brain as if it were a muscle with independent stimulation? As in - something where you are focused and using your body to concentrate and accomplish a single specific task rather than communication or consumption of information?

Not at all. My days are always the same. Weekdays, I go to school and come straight home, and then stay in my room for the rest of the day. Weekends, it's the same thing. I don't do much aside from lay in bed and surf the web, as well as some reading. Any other time is spent getting lost in thought.

It dosen't have to be much, just write a couple of bullet points about anything that happened at the end of the day. Don't worry if you miss any days, it will become habbit soon enough.
