Does Age Matter in LD
PostPosted: Sat 06 Jan, 2007  Reply with quote

Hey, does your age affect how well you can LD?

I'm a little annoyed at the moment because i've had more than 10 dreams where I realised I was dreaming, but in all of them I fade out of it almost right away. I don't understand why this happens anymore... perhaps its my age, or something to do with a lack of imagination. Does this happen to anyone else, where they realise they are dreaming with an intial shock, try to do something but can't move at all and then everything gets blurry and wake up?

That has happend to me a lot, and still does! Good to hear that it is not only me. Read the how to stay lucid turtorial, it did wonders for me, my record now is maybe two minutes!

Cheers



Current LD goal(s): Be less egoistic, more compassionate, meditate and heal myself.

That happens A LOT to me too neutral
I think exerience counts more than age.

My most recent LD only lasted a couple of minutes, but it was the first in a month, so I don't care

I think age can affect, but practice makes perfect. I don't think this has ever happened to me. My normal LD's usually last 30 mins. My longest is 3 hours, but since i started none were under 10 mins.

@NeoMarine:
I do not think the ability to dream lucidly is in any way related to age.
Anyway, do you consider yourself to be too young or too old?! eh

I have this fading-out problem after becoming lucid more often than I would like, but there are things I can do if I remember to do them. I think it is a matter of practice, so don't get discouraged. smile

I agree. mrgeen And I would probably later tell my grandsons about it (if I should ever have any… ).

Too old... well, it seems 14 year olds (such as Bright_Eyes_Rocks) have it easier than us 18 year olds... lol

Well, considering you get more 'tied' to reality along the years I'd say age would increase your chance to be able to dream lucidly.

Yea but when you get older your imagination can get pretty poor... like, if you watch tv it will rot your mind!

The tieing to reality is also one of the main reasons why the imagination gets poorer over time.

And I still have to find out how tv-rots your mind it seems.
I spose my view is distorted but I learned more from TV than school. (English for one, while my class was doing Winnieh the Pooh I enjoyed Brave New World)

lol... well, my class was doing Brave New World while i'm at home enjoying Winnie the Pooh... well not Winnie the Pooh, more like Warcraft 3... haha but still you get the point.

I don't know what you mean by "Tieing to Reality", but I assume you mean getting more used to things? There is no physical, mental or spirital "tie" to my knowledge...

Well, I suppose you could call it taking reality for granted, babies for instance at first won't realise the difference between reality and dream, I suppose you could call it "getting accustomed to reality".

And you would'nt by any chance enjoy a game of Frozen Throne as well? ^^

Heheh... I know that map yeah, I used to host it alot.
Great work on the coding of the map, even though the point system gives you too long passwords to type in ^^.

More a fan of TD's and such these days though.
