Had a short DILD when I napped in the afternoon. (I think my first LD during a nap...)
Wasn't too long and I was more observing than doing something but over all I like the experience. smile

Done.

Colors in Music
Lucid Dream #1047

I found myself on a pirate ship. I was aware at the start of the dream, which seems to be happening more and more these nights… I know this may seem like a good thing, but I prefer to BECOME lucid. Makes me worried I’ll lose my non conscious dreams.
While I was on a pirate ship, I was also sitting up on my bed which had been mysteriously transported there. I could tell I was on a ship by the wooden room I was in, and from what I could see out the window. Ocean and a black cliché pirate flag with the skull and cross bones. Let’s not forget the incessant rocking of the room.

A peculiar looking DC showed up who greatly resembled a piano prodigy DC I had seen in 2 LDs in the past. He wore the same interesting hat as well. I spend a lot of time in dreams chatting with DCs, so this was just another one of those times.
“Good evening.” He said.
“Hey there.”
“Do you want to hear something interesting?” he asked.
“Sure.”
“All the pirates fear it. Look.” And he gestured to my right and by my bed I noticed a few beads and some gems of some sort.
“Treasure.” He continued. “Very special treasure. They can control the fate of lives… IF one knows how to use it. You know what I think? I think you can use this treasure.”
“Oh, I don’t doubt that.” I said simply. “What about you?”
He shook his head. “It’s not the same. Works best in the hands of someone like yourself. A dream musician. One who can see colors in music.”
I picked up some of the beads and gems and inspected them. I found I was able to change their colors. I had changed a diamond into a ruby.
“Oh dear.” The man said.
“What?” I asked.
“Carrreful.” He warned. “Those colors are symbolic. Surely you must know that.”
“What kind of people am I affecting? People like you?”
“Anyone. Well… Not myself. But someone on this ship. You’ve hexed someone.”
“Oh, wonderful.”
There was a lot I suspected that he wasn’t telling me about himself. I didn’t ask. Instead, I changed another color of one of the clear gems to blue, and as I did that, several DCs entered the room I was in. I’m not sure if one caused the other.
“We need a dream musician.” Said one of the new DCs.
Just then, my perspective shifted and I found myself seeing through the eyes of one of the new DCs. I hadn’t changed too much, just a new outfit really. My old view still remained, and so I was seeing 2 perspectives at once.
I found a piano and sat down by it. I then began to play familiar pieces from video games. As I did this, the crystals shot up a beam of light at the wall which created a projector like effect. On the wall I saw footage from the games I played like Zelda, Mario, and Donkey Kong Country (in that order). The DCs really seemed to enjoy this. One of them requested Final Fantasy, and so I played the prelude and the projection on the wall changed accordingly.

I decided to experiment and improvise some stuff. This caused a different kind of effect. Based on the keys I was playing in, my synesthesic perceptions were being displayed on the wall. When I played a piece in A major for instance, the wall took on mountainous bright blue patterns. I began to compose some music on the spot, even experimenting with new chords. The wall changed to orange and blue and I did this, and the piano glowed as well. DCs were trying to guess what I game was playing from. I explained to them that I was just improvising now. I improvised for quite some time, memorizing some of the new stuff I was coming up with as well.

Eventually the colors changed into something new. A movie like scene began to play out on the wall instead. It showed a man in a junk yard like area. He appeared to be in a hurry for something. He rushed past piles of trash and then a river of dead animals. I recognized the place from another music related dream. He continued to run and I continued to play. He eventually arrived at a tall tower of trash, and the dream faded out.


If it's worth mentioning, I mostly played in orange, blue, and yellow keys. tounge2

Second task: Mix your senses

Your body is sleeping. In a dream, you aren't limited to what your body can do. You aren't limited to what your eyes can see, ears can hear, or body can feel. Have you ever wondered what light tastes like? Wouldn't it be wonderful to see music? What would thoughts smell like?

You can even grow completely new senses. Many animals can sense things that we can't, for example electricity and infrared radiation.

If you use one of your senses for something it isn't usually used for, you get 40 points.
If you experience this several times in the same night, you get 10 points pr. experience.

Invent or adopt a completely new sense, and you get 30 points.
If you make a recording or picture of the unusual experience inside the dream, you will get 10 points.


This task will run until 30.april, 8 pm GMT.

I've been having absolutely no luck, not a dream nor an unconcious sleep. It's like i'm skipping to morning!

Will try, this task sounds easier as I continuously develop a sixth sense in dreams



Current LD goal(s): Such control, I can bridge to Astral Projection!

I remember watching a short documentary on people with naturally mixed senses. They're supposedly pretty darn rare, but they gathered a bunch somehow. Funnily enough, they all had different associations to any one thing. For example, if they thought of color yellow, each would smell something different.

What stuck in my head the most is one particular test. They had this woman (who had several senses entwined, not just 2) in a 20+ minute test. The test itself was bogus, what they were trying to figure out was her recall skills. At the start of the test, they read her a series of short-medium length words and she had to repeat them back. She did completely averagely. At the end of the test, they asked her to repeat those words and she remembered far more than an average person did.
I sincerely hope they did other similar tests and didn't base their conclusion on this one example they put in the documentary.
The conclusion was that the more senses you experience a thing with, the better it sticks in your memory. It isn't surprising really, we all remember better to check how hot water is if we get burned first, but it does seem to apply to sense crossovers as well, which is basically a brain anomaly.

So, theoretically, experiencing something (that you can normally sense with 1 sense only) with several senses, should give better dream recall.
I've no idea how hard the challenge is, if it's even worth trying to implement in every LD just for the sake of DR, but it's something to give a little extra motivation smile

I was thinking the same thing when reading the challange. smile

A known artist who saw colour while hearing music was Wassily Kandinsky. When I look at some of his work I always get blown away. Also depends on how "open" my mind is while absorbing his paintings but when I'm lucky I kind of fall into his colours and lines, they start to move and I move with it.

It's not that rare, many people have associations between different things. I associate numbers, words and sometimes sound with colours, on average not that intens but it really depends on how I am feeling. Think about names and imagine the colour it has, a lot of people do that without knowing it. Think about why people sometimes call a heavy voice a dark brown voice.. why brown? it feels the right colour doesn't it? ^^



Current LD goal(s): increase vividness and movement, ride my underwater dragon, create a landscape
