Foil Induced Lucidity Method (was an April Fools)
PostPosted: Sun 20 Mar, 2005  Reply with quote

I have been buckling down to create a method that works on top of WILD / MILD to increase the chance of lucidity.

My method requires putting tin foil over both feet up to the ankles as you go to bed. Seperately wrap each foot in common tin foil and go to bed. The ancient tibetan bhuddists used a similiar method to sleep lucidly through each complete 90 minute cycle.

To be honest I haven't tried it yet but I need you all to help test it as well.

What do you think?

Sounds like an idea, but what do you plan to accomplish with the foil?

I ahvent heard about the monks doing that where did you read about that?

anyway good luck with it, i would try it but my mom would get mad at me for wasting tin foil smile

Maybe because the foil creates a strange sensation, you'll have just a bit more of your attention focussed on your body, which makes it easilier to WILD??

Could you reveal your sources, please? eh

I have never met something like that in any of the books I've read. That makes it strange but very interesting smile

I have read in a Norwegian article about lucid dreaming, about a technique where you tie your feet together with a scarf or similar. It is supposed to make you realize you are dreaming, either from feeling the scarf in the dream, or when you suddenly can move your feet freely! I even tried it a couple of times after reading the article, but I didn't get a LD. It only caused me to sleep lighter.

For some reason doing math homework before I sleep seems to increase my LDing chance. smile

Tin foil sounds great too, but I just crumple my sheets up, or sleep in regular clothes.

that makes sense because monks would partake in activities that required concentration to have LDS. they would quiz and test eachother all day long on top of coordination exercises and such.
