My longest LD was < 5 mins.. my control kinda sucks and yeah..

And I wonder why it can be possible to have dreams which lasted for days but in real time it is like 1-2 hours..

You have no idea what immense discussion you may have oppened with that question.
It's been so long I last LD'd I can't really remember, not long though, you need lots of experience (me thinks) in order to produce long LDs.



Current LD goal(s): Have a two week long dream! (Longest one had two days)

For first thing there is scientific prove that the longest REM sleep was around 45 minutes so there is no way to dream 2 hours continuously without waking up, you may link or chain dreams but there are different opinions on this, whether this was a one dream or 2 smile.

But what goes about dream time that's whole another discussion, but in my opinion I agree with Bleant, it's all about experience and control...

this question reminds me of this song (its instrumental for about 5 minutes but there is a nice dream related dialogue in there)

Also as many people who have done psychedelic drugs will know, at some points in the trip moments can occur in which you feel as though an infinite amount of time has past in little to no time. the fact that this can happen gives me hope that the brain has potential, while sober, to induce periods of time that seem extended.
Everyone should check out that song, its awesome reallybiggrin

As an ex drug user I confirm the mind can greatly alter it's perception of time.
Not only when using drugs, your emotions and interests also affect it.
Some people can actually slow their perception of time consciously.
Say that there is a limit to how the mind can alter its perception, combine it with the mind's very effective ability to fill blank holes with details and fake memories
it is quite possible to feel like you have been dreaming for a very long time.
YOUR perception is all that matters in dreamtime.

I have to say, I had FA which lasted like 7 hours. It was really messed up.

Imagine this, I woke up, took a shower (did all that morning stuff). Then got on the bus to school. I was there for 5 hours. I remeber every single lesson. I rember breaks when I was fooling with freinds. And then it was 15 on clock and I was ready to go home. Boom. I woke up in my bed! It was real WTH?!! moment.

My longest LD felt like days...

I often get the "skipping" effect, like: "a lucid part where it's the morning" and "an other part it's night".



Current LD goal(s): Increase Lucidity / Find a way to LD when i want./ Find a DC i already met.

It Was Probably About An Astonishing 6 - 12 Hours, And Though To Some That's A Bit Farfetched, I Can Still Remember It Long And Clear To This Day (Though It Was Just In... October 2015 Or Something...) ^^
