What is Paradiso?
Paradiso is the next step in the lucid dreaming saga. First it was The Lucid Dreaming Digibook, which showed you the techniques, then it was Infinity and LucidWarp, which showed you how to use the techniques to induce a lucid dream, and now it's Paradiso, the program to show you not only a creative way to induce lucidity, but also to show you one of the best powers to use while lucid: dreamscape creation.

Have you ever wanted to construct your own dreamscape, full of anonymous objects and pleasures all from your choosing? Not only that, but would you want to have that dreamscape appear whenever you wanted to, whether you were lucid or not? Well, I'm hear to tell you that this task is not an impossible one, but rather a simple and fun one.

As more and more lucid dreamers enter this realm of dreamscape creation, many others are desiring the same satisfaction of being able to construct their own world. The problem is, many don't know how, or where to start. Thus, I've created Paradiso, which provides descriptions, techniques, and advice on how to make all of this possible, leaving the user with one awesome result.

With this, you can create your very own extensive environment, and you can put anything you want in it. You could even put dream characters and signs up that have the sole purpose to tell you that you are lucid. Start the dream out in this environment all the time, then you can gurantee paradise and lucidity right from the beginning!

How does the program work?
Like Infinity and LucidWarp, this program will be course outlined; that is, it will have days with steps within them that will all add up to give you your final result. Also like Infinity, this program is intended to allow the user to have their goal, which is getting their dreamscape to come to life, up and running within a small time frame.

The techniques used in this program are not yet eligable for releasing, but I can say that most, if not all, have been seen before.

What's your dreamscape like?
Hah, fun part, lol. I won't go in to much detail, for length sake.

Basically, my dreamscape is an underwater glass house, located 500 feet beneath the surface. To get in, I have a small island on the water's surface that has a small building. Inside that building is a reception desk, along with a glass elevator. The elevator obviously leads down to the home.

There are many rooms. Some of my favorites are a portal room, which allows me to easily go wherever I want; a huge kitchen, which has much awesome food; a living area, which has a massive screened tv that plays jibberish, lol, and some really nice couches; a hangar that holds boats, cars, and airplanes; a white load room which basically is for me spawning DCs and fighting them and for me testing my lucid powers; and a view room, which allows me to look through screens that show wherever I want ( i've tried using this for shared dreaming, no luck yet ).

How much time do I have to take out of my day to do this?
If you've used Infinity, I can firmly say that you won't have to spend nearly as much time on this. For people who haven't, expect around a maximum of 15 to 20 minutes a night. Note, I said maximum.

Are there any guarantees for this program?
I don't like guarantees, but people still ask me all of the time, lol. All I can say is, if everything goes as planned, you will accomplish your goal. I'll re-write this section after the testing stage is complete, for I have no idea how people will react to this.

Is this free?
Like all of my software, this is freeware, and will be of no cost to you, the user.

What's the Paradiso Contest?
The judges for this contest were: BenDrummin58, The Mad Hatter, WritersCube, and Jepeltw


Who won the contest?

Paradiso wrote:
Lucid dreaming is obviously an ability that cannot be overlooked. This power allows anybody to accomplish whatever it is they could possibly think of. Perhaps they might want to soar through space, or live in major historical events. Whatever they could dream of doing, can be instantly accomplished.

Obviously, many know of this, but do they necessarily realize the fact that there are no limits? Do they know that they could quite possibly live an alternate life within their dreams? What if that person was able to understand this, and create their own dreamscape, their own paradise, and be able to rely on that special place as a "home away from home." Perhaps this place could have portals to commonly visited places, or perhaps it could have a hanger full of futuristic planes and cars that could be easily accessed at any time. Now, let me ask you, what if this person could be you?

It's time to take lucid dreaming to the next step. It's time to design and experience your own dreamworld with the freedom of a lifetime. It's time for you to enter Paradiso.

Well, in a way, this too can supplement by also allowing for LDs to come. If you start out in the same place every dream, you're going to soon realize that you will become lucid pretty much every time you're there, especially if you add "Do a RC" signs or dream characters that tell you you're dreaming.

Anyway, to clarify, if you would like to test Paradiso, the submission form will be uploaded on Sunday, April 8 2007. This registration, which will occur much like Infinity's tester registration did, will last for 1 week, making its deadline Sunday, April 15 2007. So, make sure if you want to test that you sign up in that time frame!

I have many, many, many more ideas smile .

As of now, I'm only planning on releasing one version, which will be a flash file, along with other "goodies" that may or may not exist upon release. If there are goodies, I will not make a pdf, for if you have to download a bunch of MBs for the essential goodies, you might as well download the cool flash program with it.

However, if no goodies exist upon release, I will add a PDF version; for this though, just know that it won't be anywhere near as cool as the flash project.

Well, as I noted about in my above post, this program teaches you how to make your own dreamscape (duh). So, if you have that dreamscape appear at the start of all of your dreams, then you could put up signs everywhere saying "You're dreaming" or "Do a RC!" and such. Also, you could use Infinity, or any other lucid inducing method of your choice, while working on this program. The possibilities are endless.

Ben, you're like the stephen laberge of the technology era.
I know you said you want to study computer design or something computer-y like that...but have you ever thought about psychology as well? That way you might be able to do this kind of stuff for a living and be like...stephen laberge! Oh wait, I already said that...

Build your dreamscape, eh? Yeah, i was gonna do that anyway, so you'll be helping me out :D.

Yeah, tonight ima try incubating a dream where i am in a field surrounded by forest. Then in an LD i'll come back to it and build my dream city!

That's very sweet of you to say Indianinks ^^ . While that would be an awesome thing to do, I have no idea where or how I could live off of it. And, I wouldn't want to make what I'm doing right now in to my job. It would ruin my motivation. That doesn't mean I won't continue to do this as a side-job / hobby though grin . I also may minor in that, who knows!

Heh, go for it TheRealJollyRoger!

Anyway, I have an announcement to make. I'm holding a contest for Paradiso. You might want to check it out smile . Details below...

I'm not sure what you mean by that, but I'll just clarify that it can be any dreamscape that you can imagine / create / already have created / etc.. It doesn't have to already exist, in fact I don't expect it to already exist, because if you are here, you obviously want one to exist tounge2 . Anyway, any dreamscape, real yet or not, is perfectly acceptable grin .

I think some people are getting the wrong idea about Paradiso. I say this because of some questions that I've been asked; questions such as, "What if I can't get lucid to do this in the first place?" Well, easy. Paradiso is highly eligable to both make you lucid and put you in your own paradise.

How is this possible? Well, when you construct your own dreamscape, which is what this program teaches you to do, why not construct it with all features? By this, I mean why not create dream characters and signs that have the sole purpose to tell you that you are dreaming, thus making you lucid? That way, every time you enter your dreamscape ( which could be at every start of a ND, or whenever you choose ), you will automatically transform into a lucid dream.

Think of this software as Infinity 2.0, but with a different name. It's the same concept of getting you lucid, except it's just in a different form, which has greater benefits ( ie the dreamscape ).

Anyway, hope this cleared up a few clouds for you with questions. Keep in mind the contest is still up for grabs, and since nobody has replied about it, you may automatically get the prize ( a tester position ) if you just post.
