How realistic/absurd are your dreams?
PostPosted: Wed 15 Aug, 2007  Reply with quote

Do your dreams basically consist of realistic things? Going to school, going to the store, talking to your friends...

Or do you have crazy ordeals with flying orangutans, books that eat people, and words floating in the air? (I wish I had that.) If I dream anything like this, I'm usually watching a movie.

I find that all my dreams are realistic, and therefore, pretty boring. There's usually very little to distinguish it from waking life besides the fact that a dream in school might make me realize this is summer and I am not in school. I wish there was some way to change this. Maybe I should think about more nonsensical things.

Does anyone dream mostly absurdly? I guess it makes sense to dream more realistically because your brain will be going over what you actually do in real life... Anyway, I'm curious how this goes for the population here.

I would kill for a realistic dream every once in a while.

My dreams, aren't usually outlandishly crazy, though they are fairly random. Just last night, i was having a great dream, i had met these two girls and we were chattin and everything. All of a sudden, ashlee simpson comes past and starts a huge fight with the two girls. I try to break up the fight, and in about 10 seconds, literally before i realise it...

i have broken up the fight between 3 mice... yup, the girls turned into mice. I didn't SEE them turn into mice, it was just before i was aware of it, it just happened.

This is not the first time i've had epic things turn very boring and it really annoys me. Yup as i said, you are lucky to have realistic dreams, they are waaaaay less frustrating.

I would sooooo want a normal and realistic dream for once! Some people says stuff like "Oh, I wish my dreams were as crazy as yours, then I would have no problems getting lucid", but the fact is: "THE CRAZIER DREAM, THE MORE IT MAKES SENCE!", yup, I would like to have a normal realistic dream for once in which I could easily spot abnormalities, cause if everything is "#¤%&/( then you wont really make such a big deal if all your dead relatives would come and dance salsa in a bucket of fried nutshells.

Sometimes they're normal and boring. But sometimes they are exciting and fun. Last night, I was doing something weird, like chasing after dogs, or they were chasing me or something. But then after that, I was randomly with my friends at some Harry Potter convention thing.

I think no matter how boring or realistic the dream is, your still going to believe it.

My dreams are usually realistic but there are signs which make it really obvious I'm dreaming.

Completely random too. grin1 They'll usually have some sort of "plot" though. (There's a paradox for ya.) What I mean is everything is completely random and weird, but there's usually some sort of story to go along with it, like there wouldn't be flying spoons there for no reason, the antagonist of the dream would have sent them after me. nuu LD or not though I almost always use powers...I love epic dream battles. grin My mom was making us clean the house the other day and she heard me say; "I wish I had my powers right now!" Then she gave me this face---> crazy grin1 I've gotten so used to my dream powers that I'm all dissapointed during the day when I can't use them. tryfly

It is a lot easier to tell if I'm dreaming if everything is realistic, you notice if things are out of place more easily. Like if everything else was normal and the dog was purple, I'd be a lot more apt to notice that in a realistic dream then in a crazy random one. yes

both.

things like going to school/work n stuff are dreamsigns, learn to recognise them, when your at school/work do reality checks.

definately, if you want more random dreams, you need to become open-minded, become interested in things that aren't so normal and mundane, try to find the answers to the big questions.

If you read books and play video games, or watch a lot of anime or sci-fi, then you'll have more randoms.

I've often found myself as a soldier shooting people like its counterstrike, its funny becoz when you die, you just respawn and continue on, lol! I've also been a character like Neo in the Matrix fighting people with kick *** kung fu

Most of the time my dreams are just odd, strange, non-realistic. But, sometimes I'll start off having a normal dream that shifts to a non-normal dream; for example I could be at school going from class to class and suddenly zombies break through the doors, then all my friends go to their lockers and pull out body armor and laser guns and a UFO takes the roof off the building or something so we go into a sub-basement filled with hand tools like saws, wrenches, pliers etc.

Zombies aren't supposed to fly... eek2 That would suck for me, I never have problems flying but I'm terrified of dead people and if they could chase after me that would just...suck. eek2 I forget, how are zombies supposed to be killed? You know, like wearwolves and silver and vampires and the sun. *wants to be prepared in case she has any zombie dreams*

Zombies are killed by destroying the brain or severing the head. Such as a headshot from a gun etc. Of course, if you ever meet a zombie...don't trust this information as it is just what books and movies say and it could be something completely different.

Oh, and flying zombies would not be cool.

My dreams are pretty realistic but they usually involve absurd scenarios. Last night I had a dream I was at this smoke shop where the owner gives me discounts on everything but the smokeshop was massive and it ended up being part of my house and all my family and the owners family were hanging out while I was looking for a new piece. Then for some reason I was hanging out with pornstars. So it was an absurd scenario but realistic-ish.
