The lucid fruit
PostPosted: Tue 20 Oct, 2009  Reply with quote

i have found that about 89% of the time when i drink about two full glasses of apple juice i either have a really long and vivid dream or an LD. not to mention apples are one of the helthiest things you could ever eat, no wonder the greeks called the "ambrosia", or golden apple, the fruit of the gods.

@Aks
It makes sense!
If so, the apple increase awareness and logic -
Which help inducing LDs, aren't them?

Why would apple be called the forbidden fruit?

The folks over at dream views also found this out. It apparently works very well! Take a look for yourself, I'm buying some apple juice today!

Perhaps a quick glance in the bible would freshen your memory. ; )

I read somewhere that passage most likely referred to a fig (what would an apple tree be doing in a Middle Eastern desert oasis, y'know?) but European monks/scribes thought it would be just so funny if they illustrated the fruit as an apple (in Latin, malum) because it brought evil (malus. The pun's a stretch. neutral)
Not that what Aks imagined saying becomes any less clever, or that I ought to change my avvie/username wink

I already had an apple in my midnight snack schedule. Scientific research showed that an apple is better than a cofee for a wakeup in the morning, plus it's because of the raw energy it provides (among other nutrients), not that useless caffeine, so it can keep you more alert during the night if you eat it before going to bed (without keeping you awake too much).This site was the only site i found at the moment talking about it, though.

The reason why i asked ( i clearly knew why you referenced it) is because many people mistake an "apple" as being the forbidden fruit. It's not ( and yea I go to church at least once a week sometimes twice ). I don't know where people got the "apple" as being the forbidden fruit. If you read it it just says " fruit". Now it's not a " big deal" but really where is this coming from? I

Genesis 3:6
" When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it....."

It also talks about the "fruit" later on but never says apple.

I guess it's a secular thing, for children's stories, cartoons and what not..

Well i highly doubt the fact the apple is the forbidden fruit had kept anyone form enjoying one
Would the moral of the passage have been different if the forbidden fruit was a peach? I don't really think so, and for that matter, peaches are fine to eat too tounge2

roxas let me tell you that it only works if the apple juice is unsweetened, most of the time it is even though it says it isnt sweetened you have to completely read it all. this confused me at first because when i started to drink it i had vivid dreams then i accidentaly unknowingly got a sweetened apple juice container and it didnt work annymore.
