LD4all Quest 33 - july - Travel to the center of Earth
Author: pasQuale

Every month, on LD4all Lucid Dreamers Unite we have a new Quest to explore your LD's in a fun way.

Click here for a list of all the LD4all Quests
Click here to suggest a Quest yourself
Click here to add your own Quest travel log

Travel to the center of Earth!
suggested by: Tamara

This Quest is rather straight forward. As soon as you are lucid, travel to the center of the earth.

To complete this Quest and earn your wings

  • Become lucid ( )
  • travel to the center of Earth.
  • It's a bonus if you actually end up in the center (what you perceive as the center of Earth)
  • Post your dream in this topic (a link to your DJ is allowed but you have to post in this topic that you have succeeded)


Please be very clear if you feel you have completed the Quest or want to try again - I will only give wings if you feel you have been succesfull in completing the Quest, the wings are a reward for yourself.

I will give everyone who earned it their wings at the end of this Quest, so please be patient

This time I'm not giving any suggestions/tips on how to do this. The way you travel is also part of this Quest, find what way works for you, remember: everything is possible in a lucid dream!

Preparations/Incubation
Before going to sleep or while doing your LD incubation technique (WILD/WBTB/MILD, etc):

  • set your mind for this Quest
  • ponder on how you will travel to the center of earth


Post your attempts, whether you feel you succeeded or not, in this topic smile

Good luck !

and

Have fun!

lol no, I saw a billboard for the movie after I had decided it would be the Quest. It's actually from someone in the Quest suggestion topic, but I forgot who, and I still have to look up the name for the sake of completeness ^^

Hi people bye ! I had an LD last night, but I am unsure as to whether this counts as completing the quest.

The Centre of the Earth
(The ND before this point is slightly fuzzy and I can only vaguely recall a feeling of annoyance at someone.) I look around at the huge concrete building around me, walls stained slightly yellow from age. Without actually seeing anything amiss, I realise: "I'm dreaming!"

I wrack my brain for one of the quests I had thought out and panic slightly when the search comes up with nothing scared . Luckily, I am saved by a random thought about the monthly quest on LD4all (thank you, kind people bow2 ). Without giving thought to what I am doing, I whip a cordless drill with cone-shaped drill bit out of my pocket and point it downwards. I pull the trigger and plant my feet firmly on the back of the drill as it begins its descent. Cold grey rock zips past at ever greater speeds, wind rushes through my hair and the opening above shrinks to a pinprick of light. I begin to panic once more as I feel the scenario starting to slip away, before somehow reinforcing it with intent.

This is, however, merely an attempt at delaying the inevitable return to RL. Suddenly, I am through: a soft - if somewhat bright - orange glow surrounds me and I float almost weightlessly through a dense gas (it does have greater resistance than air, but is not quite like water). Far "below", a sphere can be glimpsed in the distance, supposedly a planet-like lump of matter, as there is movement on its surface wow . A strange logic makes itself apparent: what if there is merely another earth within this one and each contains a successively smaller planet?

Can anyone tell me whether this is a valid entry?

wow relentless, what a great dream! I say you have completed this Quest, but you are the judge on wether you feel completely satisfied or not (for earning your wings). But I congratulate you! smile And I really like the vision of a smaller earth contained into earth, containing yet another earth, etcetera.

Thanks, Q ^^ ! If it's good enough for you, it's good enough for me wink .

The dream was a little less vivid than I would have liked, but I'll accept the quest as done smile . I'll still attempt a more worthy expedition, though...

since i had a dream about trying to get moogle to the center myself i guess i will post that dream here and i could try to get there in a next dream.

juli 3 2008:

trying to get to the center.

moogle wanted to journ to the center of the earth trough the stuffys labyrinth and i helped her. moogle, fatty and me were going down the cellar into the labyrinth. our goal was ofcours to use the tunnels to get close enough to the center of the earth, first we had to wade trough a litter of clothes that were filling up the tunnels and moogle said "i wonder when we will see some stuffys?" on wich fatty replyed "so what am i then? a cusion?" then other stuffys came towards us and i asked them if they could take moogle to the center of the earth, they agreed to do so. but ofcours for some reason we never got there, halfway down we came across a room with a large swimming pool in it. in the pool were sharks and a reward was given for the person who could hold his or her breath under water as long as possible between the sharksm, i did not wnat to do it but it was forced upon us so i jumped in the water with a metal weight. when i was under water i saw that the sharks were actually fake and attached to the bootom of the pool with steel pipes. i climbed out of the water and was ranked "old lady" since i stayed under water very short. moogle was next and she stayed under water longer then i had wich gave her the rank "fearless sharkfacer" i wonderd if she had seen the sharks were fake. the side of the pool i was sitting on was very soft and i discoverd that it was eateble, it tasted like cake. next there was a show about pirates for the people who visited the labyrinth, we watched it but fatty keeped complaining about when it was time to eat.

There's a movie coming out this summer in the United States that's tilted 'Journey To The Center of the Earth".

so. after reading this topic, i go to sleep. i get conscious (not at all sure i was lucid) and decide to try the quest. i'm outside, on a great field of grass, so i hike up a little cliff, and as i expect it to, there's a big massive hole that leads to the centre of the earth. without much ceremony, i jump. i start falling for a while and then things are mostly dark, in a mostly twilight-zone way. i start seeing weird stuff floating around as i fall, like pieces of fabric, food, friends of mine playing dominoes, dogs and whatnot. eventually, everything is flooded with light and i can feel a very strong heat. i look down and there's a giant pool of lava (i stand corrected: "a giant pool of liquid red" would be more like the picture). i get somewhat scared, but at the same time i feel like laughing. as i finally hit the red, i'm consumed and dissolve into a somewhat painful, somewhat trippy, somewhat pleasurable creep that oozes all the way up my body like acid or spice. at which point i'm back to bed i'm feeling my whole body spike softly.

remember how in school people tell you not to mix different kinds drugs? (licit or ilicit not being the point here). here's a tip for dreamers: do mix weird, disconnected topics in your daily life. a dream like that one up there is what you get for spending a whole day browsing ld4all, while watching weird youtube videos, while playing this game.

and no, thanks! ;-) i'll have another shot at beating this quest. i want one of those long, crazy character-oriented dreams of mine with complex plots & whatnot. i want to be completely sure i'm lucid, and that "hey i'm dreaming" isn't just a plot device. (and i do want to try and repeat this dream i had, at some point).

I actually thought about doing the quest in my LD last night, but I guess I didn't feel it was important enough to actually do it sadblauw
