[/img]@Scipio Xaos:Thanks for any information! I have a few other questions. As you begin to polyphasic sleep you get more lucid dreaming right? But if you want to stop lucid dreaming and you stop PPS will you then get a lot of lucid dreaming, or can you eventually go back to sometimes LD and usually a ND? And what do you mean by extreme and Zombiefication? That you are very tired in the beginning and (almost) can do anything? And PPS is dangerous? And if you start PPS, you can still stop lucid dreaming or is it not possible?

@Majah:Thanks for the information! I have a app to get lucid dreams and there is also a function Da Vinci. At Da Vinci, you can keep a schedule for polyphasic sleep and when i clicked on Da Vinci it says that i must 18 years or older for PPS. Have you ever tired PPS Majah? (Bedankt voor de informatie! Ik heb een app om lucide dromen te krijgen en er is ook een functie die Da Vinci heet. Bij Da Vinci kan je een schema voor polyfasisch slapen bijhouden en toen ik op Da Vinci tikte stond er dat ik 18 jaar of ouder moet zijn voor PPS. Heb jij wel eens PPS geprobeerd Majah?)

@ShyPrettyOdd:Thanks for the information! How did you make your first OOB to have experience? Was it fun or was it scary? And how long did it take?

No, I never tried PPS. (Ik word al moe als ik er aan denk wink )
I do love an occasional afternoon nap though!

@Stefano That's a lot of questions. tounge2
1) No. PPS does not mean you will get a lot of LDs. The chances are higher, though, that you will have LDs because of the increase in total REM and the reduction in time reduces the nREM a bit.
2) I guess you're asking if the effects are permanent? Nothing's permanent. tounge2 And it varies depending on the person.
3) "Zombiefication" is basically being so tired that you can' focus. It's something that can happen if you're not getting enough sleep. Basically it's when you have so much sleep debt you can't think of anything except sleeping.
4) Everything can be dangerous if it's not handled with care. If you don't get enough sleep that you need it can be bad for you. That's why you have to be careful when you set up your cycle, and if you think it's having a negative effect you should adjust it.
5) Again.. PPS does not equal infinite LDs. It just has a tendency to increase them.

I decided to answer your questions for others even though it seems you're not going to be trying a PPS cycle anyways. tounge2



Current LD goal(s): To Actually LD Regularly Again... Jeez...

Hello Stefano,
On my strict PPS schedule, while taking my 90 minute nap mid-day I had a dream and woke up to record it ((phone recorder)). I still had about 30 minutes left in the nap so I went back to sleep. About 10 minutes later, I heard voices and felt 4 entities in the room with me. It even felt like one stuck it's snake-like tongue in my ear. I ignored them due to excitement about what was happening ((I'm lucky enough to not fear SP since I know exactly what it is and I know NOTHING Can hurt me)). After the apparent voices I felt tugging at my feet. Literally I felt myself being pulled from my body. Again I was super excited to say the least. I ended up in some realm and saw a huge dragon. It was so big I could only see ONE of its eyes. The scene felt like I was in a volcano or something. Saying to myself I don't want to be here, the realm seemed to change and I ended up flying amongst billion of stars. I even touched the stars as I was flying. After that, I ended up in my living room looking at my furniture thinking WOW. Seconds later I was slammed back into my body. I woke up still feeling SP and I even thought I heard someone come into my home ((I have a dog and he barks at everything...so I knew it was my imagination)). Moments later I was able to move and go up slowly. I quickly called my husband shacking with excitement.

I say PPS helped me because I was able to take naps and have more vivid dreams. In the mist of those naps, you can wake up and and let your body fall asleep. Everytime I took my 90 minute naps I always had the intentions of trying to become lucid or to have an OOB experience. The first 10 minutes of my nap I always tried to stay awake...lol even tho 99% I would still fall asleep. No matter the outcome, I always woke up excited about my dreams ((I never had a lucid dream during my PPS )).



Current LD goal(s): Meet my Spirit Guide. Meditate in the lucid state. Go through a mirror.

Just my input for PPS.

I tried it long time ago, and it took me 1 week to get used to it, and lasted 2 weeks.
The schedule was Realistic Dymaxion.

I stopped because social interactions messed up my naps.

What I can say is : amazing experience !
I could fall asleep in minutes, and wake up automatically after 30min fresh and alert. (it is harder to get up from sleep with biphasic pattern, than from the PPS)
Also, my mind was more "clear", I don't know how to express this feeling.

The dreams were more vivid, I have not made lucid dreams though.

Very cool experience, I don't regret it. But hard to keep because of social obligations.
