Interview with a lucid dreamerCollaborate Unit
‘In fact, what you see and hear in your dreams can be understood as the flow of information that the subconscious gives to you. There are limitless posibilities of it.’
‘He’ is an experienced lucid dreamer and promotes the angle of science. He does not want to say his name and I will respect he. He knows much about lucid dream, now he is trying to translate some books about it, since there are few related resources in China and so many people can not help linking it with the ghost or some scaring things.
How can you have lucid dreams? What should you do?
I spent 10min ~ 1h, even more than 2h to record my dreams a day. I spent much time studying and trying, which others can not imagine.
Q: How lucid dream change your life?
Recording dreams have been a habit in my life. And from the first NERM to the fifth REM, which is a meaningless time in other’s life, has owned its speculative meaning in my life.
Q: What knowledge you got?
I faced with many science knowledge of different fields. Like pharmacology, metaphysics, and psychology.
Why you like it?
At first, I was appealed by it because I saw the other side of the world, which had been hidden in the dark, in the forgotten 8 hours, in the unconsciousness.
However, as time goes by, I felt what I need during the lucid dream. The angle of psychology, philosophy, consciousness, even exploring myself.
What you can do in your lucid dream?
You know, there is no physical restriction in the dream. This is the biggest advantage of the dream, and that it also why the majority of lucid dreamers devote themselves in the lucid dream. You can do what you want to do, you can fly, pass through the wall, escape, have sex, travel around the world…etc.
In a dream, you can go somewhere else in a hundred different ways. Close your eyes then open, open any door, jump into the well cover, or let the dark environment brighten again…as long as you want.
The most impressive dream?
I cut one hand and then let the arm from its regenerated hand. One of the two hands and one of my hands has my own sense of touch and movement. At that time, I feel a nervus differentiation in my body to manipulate the third hand. Similarly, I can also split into two people, with a sense of manipulation of the body of the two. In the same way, I can just let your body disappear, let it go into a part of the dream environment( It is so difficult and I have not tried). “Look at the sky with the eyes of heaven, and see with the eyes of the earth, and with the eyes of water.” …something like that. However, this is not easy. I once did not
I once did an incomplete lucid dream, about 30% conscious and 70% not. I was subconsciously informed that the living room is a dream, outside the living room is a reality. Strangely, when I walked into the living room, I realized that it was a dream. When I went out, I really forgot that it was a dream. Again, it is said that there are some very strange states of consciousness in the dream. How strange?…. Anyway, it’s weird. I can not say it exactly because I have not proved it yet. And I think no one can now.
Do you think lucid dream change you in reality?
Unfortunately, it is possible to a large extent. Unconscious takes larger proportion, some of your behavior will directly cause hint to the subconscious (either positive or negative) , which will affect the mood, judgment, and even the subtle influence of the characters are possible.
But after I know the meaning of dreaming, I tried to change myself in the dream and change the negative character. When ghosts / zombie / Godzilla chase you, you can stop and ask: why you chase me? What do you want? You can even let they sit down with you and tell yourself what they represent and so on.
You can be brave to hug what you are scared of. Holding sincere wishes to treat the characters in the dream scene, because they are likely to reflect some of the emotions in your heart. A dream of me: I quarreled with my mum. At this time I know the dream, I would like to fly away from the balcony, but suddenly I changed my mind and pull my mother to sit down and sincerely communicate with her. The subconscious mind over the details, the content of the dream finally turned into a happy ending: my mother and me understand each other in the dream. It is a possitive hint.
