Is there anything specific you need to adjust or NOT HAVE in the room in order to get to sleep?

For me it's dolls. I cannot sleep if there are any in the room. Stuffed animals and the like are fine, but I can't sleep if the empty husks of babies and children are in the room. Bonus fear if I know their eyes open and close. I have actually gotten so scared in the past that I hallucinated hearing dolls on the shelf talking.

I've been this way since I was about 5, and had two Raggedy Anne dolls on my shelf. Somehow I convinced myself they would mutilate me. I've gotten better, I used to not be able to sleep if I knew there were dolls in the hallway, or even the house. Now it's just the room. Anything with eyes watching me is unnerving, but dolls are the worst.

Also, I prefer the closet to be closed, but I can bear with that. Unlike dolls.

Wow, it's been so long since i last visited this website but i've decided to stop by for some help on something that has been baffling me for awhile.

I notice that in the beginning of a lot of my nightmares i dream about watching a horrifying documentary of sorts narrated by a male voice that always sounds like Robert Stack from "Unsolved Mysteries". In fact half of the nightmare would play out like the show, including a gruesome and realistic body horror photo of the victim, a detailed description about what happened to them, along with the ominous low-key background music. Worst part that makes my spin still chill is when the camera zooms in and i can see more horrific details. I've only ever watched the episode about Rogest Cain but that was 4 years ago.

Documentary-type dreams i've had included a tiger with an extremely enlarged head and bulging glossy eyes due to a brain tumor, a kid crying in pain from numerous teeth growing out of his skin, and re-enactments of a murder/robbery taking place in real time inside my house.

I liked to watch a lot of documentaries when i was in middle school about medical mysteries or human bravery so i'm thinking that maybe the horror aspect didn't register with me until much later because of my fascination obscuring that perceived fear.

Has anyone else experienced these type of nightmares? What could they possibly represent since i see little discussion on these specific dreams.

OP here.
I think you are correct in that it's probably from watching too many documentaries with body horror back then. The only type of documentaries i watch now are those "Top 10" styled videos on Youtube on certain topics. It still perplexes me though that my dreams play out the "unsolved mysteries" format, despite only ever seeing one episode of the show. The fact videos i see now are vastly different (in terms of presentation) to that series but for some reason my brain just latched onto the show's disturbing atmosphere.

Not that this is what's going on here, but I'm just going to blog for a minute.

I just had a dream, and though all of the details have already disappeared because I have been moving around, I distinctly remember lying in bed, thinking about the dream, and realizing, "Hm. Maybe it means that I want to see things like I'm a little kid again."

It was something about listening to figures of authority - a lesson which I have been stubborn in remembering since I have a decent job and can afford to be on my own.

So what I would try to do if I had a dream like a documentary, and when I was a kid it was what I watched a lot of, is abstract the fuck out of the information until it becomes a sort of Rorshach test.

So I used to __sit__ in front of the TV and __watch__ a __documentary__.

What is sitting?
Something that requires no effort and is presumably comfortable.

What is watching?

Okay, I will speculate on the horror.
The furthest I would take it though, is that your brain may be attempting to replicate the phenomena of the "Documentary," in which simply by the act of watching you are granted the solution, reason, or history behind some previously unknown person or historical place, or it is trying to help you figure out the explanation or reason behind some specific suffering you are experiencing, or suffering in general. Do you think about suffering often? Whether your own or others'?

OP again.
Wow, that Rorshach test example on how you thought about the dream is something i definitely need to try the next time a documentary nightmare occurs. It might help me understand better what the origin might be of my personal anxieties.

As for thinking about suffering, it really only occurs through intrusive thoughts that i try hard to push to the back of my mind. On occasions when i'am about to doze off, my mind churns out creative and artistic ideas, which is awesome. However, that all of a sudden slowly devolves into horrible memories of being too curious about a horror movie and reading or watching a review of it (Tetsuo the Iron Man or Serbian film). Sometimes a scene from a horrifying documentary called "Children of Chernobyl" would pop into my head and i can't sleep until i put music on to distract me. I used to be into horror movies as well back then and still am now but after stumbling onto "Tetsuo the Iron Man", my desensitization to gore/body horror dropped so hard that i couldn't watch horror films again till 2 years later.

Maybe i'm pushing these intrusive thoughts back too much and they are starting to show in my dreams. Heck for all i know i just might be a bit winded from being bombarded with daily negative news about people suffering and feeling bad for them.

I don't know when i'll have another documentary dream to confirm any of these theories about why they happen but when it occurs i'll make sure to write every detail and feeling down, even if thinking of it after awakening scares me to pieces. :/

The self-administered Rorshach test is something I do with each and every dream my brain chooses to present to my consciousness.

>Maybe i'm pushing these intrusive thoughts back too much and they are starting to show in my dreams.


I was getting curious as to why you run away from them. Is it just because they feel bad? Don't you feel bad all the time already? Why hide from bad things if they won't kill you?

When I was going through my period of vivid psychic horror, I would explicitly summon it, and attempt to capture it in drawings. Avant garde/Dark ambient sound really assisted with that expression and experience. I decided that the horror which existed within my brain, and at the same time seemed impossible to have been generated by it, was nonetheless a part of it, and that assimilation with was the only way to move in any direction - not necessarily forward, but maybe down?

There is no good or bad, and everything in the world suffers anyway - look at how the bugs writhe, starving, how the cute animals fight over what raw scraps of plant life or even better, human garbage that is left for them on their paved-over ancestral homes. Much to the chagrin of the people who built their own physical, mental, and emotional prisons, and now starve within them for all forms of sustenance.

I say it's not that there's nothing to fear, it's that there's nothing left to fear; we are already dead and dreaming.

Sorry this got bloggy, I am very tired and felt like writing something.

Where did this whole “YN Syndrome” come from? I am currently trying as hard as I can to achieve my first lucid dream in more than 15 years. I have a world already created from scratch named Lucia with nearly the same eccentricity, density and gravity, an erratic weather system, three continents under a super continent, overpopulated by the trillions, and it does have a chaser population just to the northwest beyond the desert near the poles. Lucia is located in the constellation Cancer orbiting a yellow normal star. I tried my very best of my abilities, but needed advice. My goals: Explore all three continents 100%, unite all of our YN protagonists only so I can form a big enough army in preparation to take out the chasers populated from the northwest, and finally, stop global corruption using whatever we have with discretion while at the same time conquering my own fears. The planet I am going to may look like this, both from space and on land as a quick glimpse preview.

I am thankful for your support, but I do not take drugs, supplements, or plants for that matter. Just recently, I uncovered a dream sign in my head whilst visualizing in my sleep last night and a short flashback to the past that I was hunted down by chasers of various species when I was little. The dream sign was a red biohazard and says that I have Yume Nikki syndrome from the monsters. After that, I was unable to dream until this very day that I decided it is time for me to simulate what they will do using Plague Inc: Evolved in reality to see how serious they are. A chaser means someone or something that pursues you in your dreams. In regards to Lucia itself, present-day 2017 would mean it takes place in 2217, whereas when I was little, it took place around the start of the 23rd century. Therefore, they got technology that could swipe me clean off or read my mind milliseconds before I would have time to react, predating the kind of movies in theaters released back in the 2010’s.

Most of the population at that time acted friendly, but they only offer help only under great duress. They looked like wearing various future clothing and are beyond our current plastic surgery modeling computers tenfold. My duration of that stay was barely 15 minutes long: walking into the city and be mesmerized at the layout, followed by a sudden siege of said city by Chasers, and nearly impaled straight up from the spine that left a real scar on me when I woke up. They offer me a chance in the future to lead the whole population and council to fight against them by demanding I lose the power to dream by any conventional means for 15 years. I reluctantly accepted, they lift the siege and vanished, the last moment I get to see is myself dying on the ground outside the city walls surrounded by a lot of helpful characters of both genders predating 2000-2010’s anime we get to see later sobbing and holding on to me. Such a wonderful vivid dream for a little child like myself, and then taken away from me.

Now, the people of Lucia are calling me back through my subconscious, so this means I am ready to head back and wipe out every single Chaser there to ensure every protagonist of the Yume Nikki universe is saved. I expect a long, bloody war between Lucians and Chasers for control of our Soul Towers, structures that are typical for defense, but it stores magical energy any character can possess. Losing just one puts a huge dent in Lucia’s ability to conquer negativPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

YN Syndrome is not new, to put it briefly, it means “extreme social withdrawal”, isolation from society for more than six months. It began in Japan, but over the years, it spreads very slowly everywhere, only lethal voluntarily by common sense errors we make (no spoilers intended), and involuntarily through extreme rare cases like sudden unexpected death in sleep for few people. It is a behavioral syndrome, so it operates in a similar manner to how people are diagnosed with autism, ADHD, polio, and those with Asperger’s, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

There is no actual need of a cure, it can be treated by changes in lifestyle to suit sleep better, is 100% avoidable, and can be contracted more than once in a lifetime. It is caused by not being successful in life, having too many hobbies to go around that requires being indoors, or failing to get to sleep on time every day, even on weekends. This can be simulated like a Virus on Plague Inc: Evolved, but it must start in Japan and must start with a set date on the system to 24/6/2004, because the game reads in day/month/year format. I would like to see it played by someone as a request at any later time.

It sounds more like OP has a fantasy world he's created, not so much like a "Dreamscape." It sounds like his planet has rules and a narrative, rather than being entirely disjointed and impossible as YN is.

I believe it's pretty much the same if you have the same time to access both. In reality, though, it's more probable you will write faster in a physical diary simply because it's next to you when you wake up. Unless you leave your computer on all the time, that's it.

Mine goes back to 2013 as well as some I remembered from my childhood. I started mine because of LSD: Dream Emulator, which was based on the dream journal Osamu Sato's coworker kept. (it was released as "Lucky Sweet Dream" and you can find it online)

I type mine because my handwriting is shit and my hand cramps up too fast when I write. I doubt it makes a difference as far as your memory is concerned, but if you think it might you can try each and see.

Sometimes I can remember a dream well enough for a small paragraph weeks later, other times I have to grab the nearest device/paper and jot it down right away before I forget it. In the latter case it doesn't take me too long to power up my laptoaster and log into a comfy TTY.

Do any of you have any ideas on how to trigger certain types of dreams? Specifically dreams that are on the bizzare side of things? Not so much nightmare-esque, but just really trippy, insane type dreams. All of my dreams seem to be so socially oriented or dialogue heavy. I'd like to see some of the more asthetic. This is of course, assuming I can't lucid dream, but I am of course open to methods of accessing such dream types lucidly as well. Thank you for your time.

I don't think this is necessarily true. I often tend to dream about things I haven't thought about in years. It's rare that the imagery in my dream will follow a linear logic of what I saw or thought about during that day.

take some diphenhydramine, whenever i do i usually dream about some sort of version of hell. last time i was wandering around the main hallway of my house (it went on forever), it was really dark and the only lights there were were the bedroom lights witch were incandescent lamps. various things like pillows and laundry baskets would writhe around with malevolence, like something was inside it trying to get out. just being there made me feel like that i was about to die but whatever was going to kill me was playing with its food. still i seek out these dreams because they are like no other. dont take too much thought you'll feel brain fried, anxious, very paranoid, and you'll see and hear things

By tests, I've concluded that there's a 100% probability of having a nice dream if you consume a lot of energy right around the time you're planning on getting to sleep, even in fringe cases where I can only sleep for around 4 hours.
Thoughts?

 No.2398

well I say "nice" dreams, but what I guess I really mean is "memorable", or really narrative-driven dreams. the only dreams I typically find to be "unpleasant" are ones where I feel real phyical pain, or have impeded vision or movement or whatever. I'm okay with even some little frightening parts, as they don't typically last long and give me something to really think about when I wake up

I'm glad you found something that works for you, Anon. My system and I are almost at odds with each other - once I find a reliable trigger, it gets moved once I feel secure that it will work.

 No.2401

This is really interesting. I've wondered about what might reduce the probability of having "narrative-driven dreams", but didn't consider how much energy might increase it. I've heard quite many times that stress or going to bed too exhausted leads to dreamless nights, or waking up with that sensation of not having even slept but can't exactly confirm this.

What kind of things did you try so to have more energy before falling asleep? Exercise? Caffeine? I wouldn't mind testing this out.

I remember that one of the times I used to have a lot of deep dreams was when I would drink tea before sleeping, but back then I would usually go to bed late although not tired, and assumed it must have been that lateness. Many teas have caffeine, must have been that instead.

This is the most terrifying dream I can ever remember having.

One of the most disturbing parts was that the dream started out with me doing extremely mundane things. Things I would do in real life. As though the dream wanted to settle me in comfortably before it terrified me. I was in a hotel on a high up floor. There may have been a convention going on. I was looking through a card binder and thinking about selling things. I go down to walk, by the stairs for some reason, and I see a young boy in one of the hallways. He might have been indian or something, he was certainly ethnic in any case. He looks lost, so I agree to help him find his parents.

As I walk through every single hall with the boy, I find some people crowding a particular door. A woman runs up seemingly trying to retrieve the boy, but she doesn't look like his mother. I asked if they were related. She said no and grabbed him away from me. So they throw the kid into the door and I hear teeth chomping and howling that pierced my soul. So I ran.

The rest of the dream was 3 days of survival, in real time, as the most gruesome depiction of hells hounds, seemingly somehow released by a middle eastern terrorist organization, covered the world devouring everyone. I ran with various packs of people camping for survival, Sei was separated from me after the first attack on our camp. I don't know what happened to him. I remember I jumped into a pool at some point and many hounds followed me in.

The hounds looked like they were made of darkness, muscle, and teeth, and resembled various dogs at different times, they morphed unnaturally.

Oh and the dream let me wake back up in what seemed like my bed in real life but actually was another dream. just a weird one though where there was some homeless chick living in my house watching DVDs with a bad speaker, but the speaker sound almost made me think of the dogs again, and THAN I actually woke up

 No.2274

There's another few events that happened. When I was surviving with camps, we debated the legitimacy of doing anything for the sake of comfort. Some people wanted to use weed or drugs because they said they would help, other people wanted to sleep, or cook food. Every little comfort was debated on the grounds that we could be attacked any moment, and most people agreed to simply eat millitary rashions.

There was a scene where a large group of children were debating similar things, but more like in regards to comforting each other. They sat alone, silent, until it became difficult for them to silence each others cries to each other for affection. This scene followed into the attack that lead to me apparent death in the pool.

 No.2376

Fuck dude that sounds like it really sucks, i think the worst dream i had was when i was a kid. When i have nightmares they usually involve ghosts or some sort of psycological torture. I remeber as a kid i used to eat a lot at night when my parents were asleep and since the kitchen was in the middle of our house i had to traverse the dark hallways to get some measly portion of food that would somewhat satistfy my hunger (or boredom). If i turned on the lights i would wake up someone and they would usually get pissed so i had to keep all the lights off except the light above the water dispenser on the fridge. This really gave the gouse an eerie feel and it didnt help that i watched tons of documentaries on supernatural stuff as a kid.

So anyways in this dream i was going to the kitchen to get some sort of food and it was just like in real life. I get to the kitchen and hear some furniture move around the corner in the living room. I look over and see a outline of m older brother that was all black but somehow darker than the dark room he was in. He had my little brother in front of him and he looked like he was crying. I yelled out in shear horror because for reasons unknown i kew that he was really a shapeshifting demon out to get me. I run back to my room upstairs and wait their with my head in my hands because i was cornered and i hated myself for leaving my brother with that thing.

Eventually after an hour or so of tension and soft footsteps outsfide my door i hear a fist banging on my door. I open the door and see my 8 year old younger carrying my previously mention baby brother. My baby brother had a look in his eye that told me if he said anything about the dempn that was posing as my brother he would be killed. Meanwhile the demon ppsing as my 8 yr old brother was begging me to let him in. This really fucked me up and i woke up crying


Luckily it was all a dream

Ok so, guys, this dream is not mine, is from a friend (who doesnt speak english)
He told me he dreamed about he entered into a classic building, so, he entered into an elevator, he says there was someone behind him, but he couldn't turn around to saw who was that guy. he entered the elevator, and there was two womans on it.
He says one had blonde hair with a horsetail, and the other one has long brown hair, he told me the people who was behind him entered into the elevator too, but he didnt saw him entering, and was still behind him.
So.. the elevator started going up, until they get into floor 49, then, the elevator started to tremble, and going down, going down extremely fast. until it crashed and he wake up…
So, he decided to see what time was, it was exactly 11:49 P.M

So what do you think, he is asking of if this drea could have a meaning, and, if it has one, what does 49 number means in all of this?

 No.2392

dumb vidya logic.
50 would be the max level, but 50 actually rolls around to 00 so 49 is the max level.
