Basically we're each going to take a part of one of our dreams and mash it together into one big story. Ex: I'll take the landscape from one of my dreams and then the next person will take something from their dreams and that will be the next part of the story. If we wake up because of death, being scared, mind rape, ect. We start a new one.

Here we go.
"We wake up in a monochrome, steampunk world.

An orange creature holding a red Fanta in one hand, a blue Fanta in another hand, a green Fanta in a third 'hand' that is where a foot should be, and a orange Fanta in another 'hand' that is where another foot should be tumbles through the air, flying in a fumbling-falling way that it really shouldn't.

The world shakes for a moment.

Everything that was spooky-weird is now normal looking and everything that was normal looking is now spooky and weird.

The creature is no where to be seen, it must have flown on by.

This is a catch-all thread for miscellaneous dreams.

Drop your dreams that don't fit anywhere else in /yume/ here. They can be any type of dream about anything; lucid dreams, moody dreams, crazy dreams, fetish dreams, even trips/hallucinations, ANYTHING that doesn't need its own thread, post it here.

This way /yume/ won't be cluttered up with threads that never get responded to, and it'll be way easier and simpler for people to post their dreams since they won't have to start a new thread every single time; I want to hear more dreams from all of you and I encourage you to post them here no matter how short they are, and no matter how insignificant you think they are.

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.

I can't sleep if the room isn't dark and it isn't quiet. I'm fine with a ticking clock, since my room has one, but things like the tv being on will keep me up.
Also the door has to be shut and it needs to be cool. And I always face the wall when I sleep. It just makes me feel safer for some reason.

I suppose death is something I need to be more familiar with anyway. It's how imageboards are supposed to be.

Our thoughts and impact on the world will disappear just as quickly from the world as the threads with our heartfelt thoughts in them drop off the end of the board.

Just because something has happened over and over again in the past, that doesn't make it inevitable. Technically, even Uboachan can still exist a hundred years from now. Faith in stuff like that is what keeps me going.

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'?

 No.2433

>>2432
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.

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 don't have doubts such a thing may have documented in the past, but the way this guy relates sounds extremely fake and gay, to say the least. 10 years and living every single hour of every single day of every single year in only a few minutes? What, has his brain a quantum 6THZ processor to run all those instructions that fast? Had he said something along the lines of "I had the impression of living 10 years but always found it weird that things went so fast" I wouldn't have believed on his word, but at least I'd have admitted that'd have been plausible.

In my childhood, I would have several reoccurring dreams. In one of them, the ground of our (fairly large) backyard was actually liquid, and something lived it. You could sort of walk across it like it was that cornstarch slime stuff, but if you were slow you'd quickly sink down. And for whatever reason the thing that lived in it would just randomly decide which people it should pull under. Didn't always happen, but it happened often enough that everyone knew it was a real risk.

Later on I'd have dreams that seemed very different at first, but at some point the colour would drain from the world, all the lights would go out, and a phantom-like creature would appear. Sometimes close, sometimes far away. I always knew when the change was about to happen and sometimes I'd wake myself up before it did. Don't really remember what happened when I didn't.

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.

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)

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.
