Dream all the time like to dream and would probably be the next Stephen King if I wrote books based on my dreams. I have had some dreams come true and in two of them the details matched exactly what happened. In one I dreamed about the inside of a building and watching someone on a upper deck checking doors. A year later I was in that building and the details in the dream matched the details of the building and what was happening to a tee. The strange part was I had never been in that building and the last time I saw the building they was just starting to lay the block to build it 10 years earlier, before the dream and the building is located in another state. Another Dream I had several years after that one matched word for word and location an event that happened about 6 months after the dream.

As a child I would frequently dream, wake up early in the morning, then go back to sleep and carry on the same dream. It got really interesting after my father told me some people could control dreams: Next time I woke part way through a dream, I though about what would have fixed the problem I'd been dreaming about, then went back to sleep and did it. Sorry, can't remember all the details now, but I do remember watching my dream self rotate like a spinning top before flying off as a superhero. On a trajectory something like a firework, as I recall.

I've had a bad sleep cycle the last few years, which seriously interfered with dreams, but I still get the odd one. Last one was set about 10 years ago and I was driving around and trying to find another route to where I was going, since most of the houses were on fire and the road was filled with smoke. I also realised, Hollywood fashion, that I was engaged to the wrong person and should have been with the lass I was talking to most of the time in the dream (who is Mrs Chomper IRL, thankfully).

OT: I've heard poor sleep can interfere with non-dream memories, but it doesn't seem to affect me much. I've also heard it can interfere with non-dream memories...

I've dreamt every night since posting here, thought to "reality..." none worthy of posting yet.

Food can also affect dreams

Ever since my work schedule changed to a complete crap, I wouldn't get to sleep sometimes until 3 or 4 am. I've been using my antidepressant pretty much also as a sleep aid, plus dabbled into zzquil a few times. I have had some weird dreams, and been trying to reproduce the results any way I can. I also have been researching certain foods to eat during the night, primarily cheeses to see if I can get any kind of better and weirder dream .

My only problem is yes, majority of the dreams I have I do not remember but it would be awesome if I found a way to recall them properly. Tried logging into a notebook but that did not really work for me. I also would love to pull off some lucid dreaming, that would be really cool.


Anyways, anyone know what other foods to try before bed for the best/worst possible dream? I've even had nightmares, but I actually don't feel rattled at all,in most cases I just get more and more intrigued from it.

Arrow

When I put "thought to "reality..."" my cousin who passed 3 years now from cancer, started bouncing around my synapses* plus ever since as I was paraphrasing his advice on snowboarding.

He got me into (sk8n) skateboarding first. For 5 years it was a way around (too old at 25 then but it was on a cool (almost as old as me (well I got 13 years on it, doesn't seem long these days)) Powell longboard. Then we found: (approx. in diameter) 15' (4-1/2m,) with thick steel walled, full pipes, taking up entire semi truck flatbeds. We climbed inside them as he started showing me how (like on a swing) you pump up, down and around ramps; like a build your own roller coaster (pun) on the fly! For 2 years all I did (at 30 and sk8parks) was rock back and forth. Now 11 years later,,, SWEET! ;)

2 years before he passed(-at 39 ) got me into snowboarding. I remember one of the first things he told me was, that because we're coming from a sk8n background snow and gravity was gonna amplify our skills and it's learning curve is very mellow\easy (even to skis or riding a bike.)

He said it would have took him a year to learn a front flip on a sk8 but snowboarding all he inevitably did was visualize it.

That brings me to a bigger conclusion on learning new intriguing things, I always dream about them.


GNU\Linux maybe great exercise for our brains but the more we find (free...) yada ya. :D

Have fun!

Most dreams are just rehashes of experience but a few can be very useful. Most people have heard of Kekulé's dream that led him to the structure of benzine. Some-one once surveyed 50 mathematicians and found that half had got a solution to a problem in a dream, sometimes the complete proof.

I recommend
Extraordinary dreams and how to work with them / Stanley Krippner, Fariba Bogzaran, & André Percia de Carvalho. SUNY, 2002.
That includes advice in achieving dream recall and lucid dreams, and covers a range of topics, including telepathic and clairvoyant dreaming. I found it interesting that all the authors are psychologists, two being professors; a far cry from the days when academic psychologists were mostly mired in shallow scientism.

In real life, I am kind and friendly, but if I'm in a dream, I sometimes see an opposite version of me. I am a villain in a movie-like dream.

Thanks but spooky... Tinker Bell can't fly without innovation.

He was spiritual but didn't buy into the money and power things religions mostly are, his church was the great outdoors.

No matter what the the two* of you* believe(d mythology) the only heaven is memories, dreams and [sk8n> (No need to prove somethings.)

In ICU. I dreamed a train was backing up on me slowly and clearance was disappearing. Musta been the morphine in me.
So after ICU. I said no pain killers. Synthetics never agree with my synapses.

Camping out. I dreamed I could slide down mountain cliffs into the valley below. No matter how high or dangerous. No injuries.
No flying though.
Musta been the good weed I was smoking. Plus the moonshine I was drinking <which I brought 2 quart jars home for later during the winter>

AFAIK unless I am mistaken Morphine is not really a synthetic since it is from the poppy plant so they are fairly similar (heroin and morphine.) since they are both opioids:

Quote:
Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morphine

The primary source of morphine is isolation from poppy straw of the opium poppy.[11] In 2013, an estimated 523,000 kilograms of morphine were produced.[12] About 45,000 kilograms were used directly for pain, an increase over the last twenty years of four times.[12] Most use for this purpose was in the developed world.[12] About 70% of morphine is used to make other opioids such as hydromorphone, oxycodone and heroin.[12][13][14] It is a Schedule II drug in the United States,[13] Class A in the United Kingdom,[15] and Schedule I in Canada.[16] It is on the WHO Model List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a basic health system.[17]

This probably wouldn't count as useful, but a friend once told me he'd dreamed about a woman whose right leg was shorter than her left. Her name was Eileen Right.

In a similar vein, in one dream I encountered a battered child. Nothing abusive at all, the kid in question was just walking around covered in batter.
