Great, friend thinks I'm crazy now...
PostPosted: Sun 27 Nov, 2005  Reply with quote

I've told a friend from my new class about my attempts to LD and all about sleep (no one knows anything about OH, HI, HH, SP, etc :-().

Now he sais you're crazy man, you're going to screw yourself up, and I don't want to talk to you eek2 why the hell would you want to see things that are not real?

why the hell can't people understand what LD-ing is all about? He didn't even understand anything from what I told him but he already thinks i'm crazy and I bet many more will soon. Do any of you get this from other people?

No, allthough somebody i talked to thought it was a drug, i told them it wasn't and they belived me. If he won't listen, don't talk to him about it.

LD's have been scientifically proven. If that's what Captain Skeptic wants to hear.

If I had a very good friend and talked to him about LD'ing (what has happened many times indeed), he wouldn't say to me: "I don't want to talk to you anymore". So I think you have to find another "friend"... confused

You should just speak about LD'ing about people who are interested in dreams and psychology. A lot of people are materialistic and are not interested in this stuff. You just talk to them about your normal dreams and they think you're crazy! lach1

After discovering LD's this year and talking to my (best)friend about it he just said "yeah, I knew you're crazy", but just as a joke, he believes, nad think it's interesting but just don't care trying it.
Some other friends got interested in LD's too after I told them about it.

Tell him its like doing a drug, but without any negative consequences? What more could you ask for?

great friends u got then tounge1
but well i wont talk to most of the rl-mates bout ld-ing cuz i simply think most of them dont understand it or dont *want* to understand it
its much easier to talk bout it with peeps u dont meet irl, i think u have to be sure the rl-guys u talk with about it have to be ready for such a thingy

I'm with that idea if he doesn't listen to that talk to him about something else.

If this guy thinks your crazy just because you're a lucid dreamer, no worries, everyone has their own point of view, and lucid dreaming is not for everyone. However if he doesn't want to be your friend just because you LD, then I'd find some more open minded friends smile

Ive goten this from people myself, and Its hard to understand why it would freak anyone out. LDers have it rough, its a weird hobby, but I think people will begin to learn more about it, and hopfully it will become more known to people. The internet is pretty new to the world still, but the word is getting out. Its ashame your friend turned his back on you like he did, its his lose, you tried to teach him something that could change his life, and he decided to throw it back in your face. I think the world was ment to LD. Things are changing.

I have told about lucid dreaming to three of my friends, and now they are all (at some level) practising them themselves. ^^

When I told my father, he just said something like "whatever..."

Alas, Lucid Dreaming is still a Protoscience (Which many write off as a pseudo-science. Gimps), and i don't think it has ever been exposed to the public through news or any other popular medium. If we could make a reality show or sitcom about it...

Basically, feck skeptics. They don't know what they're missing :D
