I found some short talks on lucid yume / lucid yume (astral edition). They seem like sketchy signuptomymailinglistforfreedvd production wise, but the info seems legit. What do you think?


The info only seems legit to you because you're gullible. People can make anything sound genuine if they throw around enough made up terminology. If you find out that it's actually real though, i'd be happy to know.

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.


you people talking about hikikomori? just call it "hikikomori" then!




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.

That's awesome.


I have two but they're just regular notebooks
I used to write in them every single day but for some reason I just don't remember my dreams much anymore
I had one last night but nothing significant happened


is using a physical journal rather than a .txt file better for recalling dreams?


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.

Try daydreaming while still in bed awake.


It works


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


What's the source of that image?
Also, since diphenhydramine takes about 2 hours for its maximum effect, do you take it right before sleeping or just some time before?

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.


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


how embarrassing


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.


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


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.


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?


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

So I've always had nightmares, but lately they've been more vivid and gruesome than the typical ones I've had.

I've been taking an SSRI for the past month, I'm wondering it that has anything to do with it, I'm unsure. Have any of you experienced dreams that are so vivid you can feel every single thing in it, despite those things not happening to you in real life? My last one involved me being split almost in two down the middle of my body, and it felt uncomfortable and painful and the two halfs would open as I walked and moved around. I also witnessed my boyfriend and my best friend in the same condition as well.

I don't know, I've always had them but the vivid detail and sense of pain I feel from them has been higher than normal.

> I've been taking an SSRI for the past month
Maybe this is a reason. I feel pain in dreams sometimes too, but not so intensive. Once I've had taken a too much pills and couldn't fall asleep. And when I finally fell asleep, my dreams was realistic too, but they was, say, mixed with reality.


Yes, medications that act on serotonin will almost definitely have a strong effect on your dreams.

I just made a 2-week time-lapse GIF for the updated map that if you can click on it, it will give you a rapid-fire sequence of events based on positive-neutral-negative outcomes we experienced up to this point. At first, the Lucians appear to be losing ground a little bit from several negative dream outcomes, but after some major encouragement, plus the advantage of using the high ground give them an advantage to push farther north just before reaching snow-capped territory. Autumn is setting in fast from the north, and heavy storms are battering the neutral eastern seaboard that is not my concern.

As of now given the last frame, this is where my dream people need further tactical assistance to either use the mountainous terrain and take the northernmost Soul Tower on the way (A), or a bottleneck one-way main road to attack the enemy capital, taking two of the remaining three Soul Towers with it (B). If they do not take either route within the next month, they will retreat to the continental border and reset the meter to 60/40 due to neutral dream outcomes or delayed reinforcements and supplies. (1st and 2nd image)

Looks like one of the high-ranked Chasers,(3rd image) a demon knight wants to challenge me in my dreams after I firmly rejected his offer to betray the Lucians to help my enemy win their soul harvesting movement, it would be high treason followed by automatic waking up with a swollen head. The duel will take place on Rockcrown Cliff (4th image) just not far from the Soul Tower northeast of the disputed continental border, and it will be a fight to the death type of dream starting whenever the next time I become lucid. This the first translated place I deciphered from my map into English. I have no experience in dream combat, so most certainly I will lose followed by waking up unless I get to know what stabilization is. I am advanced with the visualizing, checks, programmed events and story detail, but lack the in-dream techniques needed to survive extended REM stays.

Other high-ranked Chasers may join in to duel with me should I win somehow by luck or self-confidence. This type of dream is just as ambiguous as Madotsuki. I might just soon end up with her (not lethally) too if I cannot win my unintended dream war with beasts without a walk-through. Help would be appreciated, and I will thank you for any advice. The exact names of whom challenged me remains classified, and my dream story is still on going, so all images Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


why a new thread?


Eh, I have no idea where this comes from; my thoughts are clouded at the moment. This is actually part of the thread that focuses on dreams that catch my interest as of late, and I do not attempt in any way switching them unless necessary. Thanks for coming in!
