Slowing time in Lucid Dreams?
PostPosted: Wed 24 Jun, 2009  Reply with quote

Hey.

Has anyone here actually tried to or succeeded in slowing time in their LD, to make it last longer than IRL (e.g. the dream went for 1.5hrs, but in your dream world it lasted longer). Or, could somebody link me to a thread where someone has managed to do so?

Good luck with that, I think it would require alot of experience with LDing to get proper results. Some things I think may help are verbal commands, asking DC's and imagining two pyramids counter-rotating - whatever that means

My analysis of the linked threads:

The first one discusses the topic in great depth, and many people have posted stories of dreams that ran or seemed to run longer than they actually were, although nobody managed to do it purposefully.
The second thread proposes a method for controlling dream time of pulling out a stopwatch in your dream and seeing what it says, meaning you have however much time it says left. There were no _real_ successes posted.
Third thread was similar to the first one, discussing the topic generally and theories as to how it may or may not be possible.
The last thread had people posting their thoughts and small successes. It seems another theory related to slowing time in dreams is slowing time in near death situations.

I can easily slow down in my dreams without any special techniques. The real problem is not the time itself slowing down, but keeping myself at the correct time/space ratio. I mean you can slow down easily but slowing down time it also slows you down, so you must find a way to keep yourself out of time, thus causing some major sensitive problems in interaction with the dreamworld.
Anyway, even if you manage to slow time, it doesn't mean at all that you will be able to have longer dreams - longer than the sleep-cycle - because you can't ask from your body something he is unable to complete. When you dream longer periods than IRL it doesn't mean at all that you actually modified time in any way. Let's take an example: you are going to school from home. This activity would take IRL about 20min counted on the clock. Well, if you would do this in a dream, the moment you leave the home it is linked, consequently, to the moment you arrive at school. So you have the feeling you walked 20min but actually you did not - it would appear illogical if you wouldn't - and this trip only took 2-3s. Imagine now dreaming a life time. The days of doing the same thing in dream are cut and cut and cut until it is stripped down to the sleep-cycle.
The idea is that you can slow time, but this won't affect the time when the dream ends.

Yeah, that was one of the main theories against it. But I believe somebody in these forums (can't remember the name or thread) taught themself to speak out loud in a lucid dream and found that they spoke very quickly during the longer LD's.

I remember reading once, somewhere, although i don't remember where (and i know it wasn't on this website) of a man who had a dream which lasted only one night in reality but lasted for around 100 years in the dream.

This is rather outrageous and sketchy... i don't know if it's true, but i believe that it is possible, however difficult it would be.

No idea how it would happen or how it could be achieved though.

I don't know if this is possible, because of the fact that your mind is aware you are dreaming, which means you are "awake". which would have to mean that time would pass at the same rate as it would while you were awake. At least that's what I think. If anyone has success with this, they better post it!
