Lucidity Challenge 52
PostPosted: Sat 31 Oct, 2015  Reply with quote

Introduction

Hi! I'm your host for Lucidity Challenge 52.

The Lucidity Challenge (LC for short) is a game that is intended to provide some additional motivation for people who are trying to have lucid dreams. Each week there will be new challenge tasks posted in this forum thread, and you score points for having a dream (lucid or non-lucid) in which you do one or more challenge tasks. Lucid dreams score more points: the details of the scoring system are described later in this post.

At the end, the person with the highest score is given the option of hosting the next challenge; if they don't want to do it, the option to host passes on the second place scorer, and so on. Apart from that, there are no prizes; the goal is to have fun, both doing the challenge tasks and by having other lucid dreams using the skills you've learned from attempting the challenges.

This is not a scientific experiment. If it was, there would probably be some kind of hypothesis being tested, and Institutional Review Board approval for the experiment, and consent forms for participants, etc. This is just a game.

If you feel uncomfortable about any of the tasks (e.g. you find it frightening, or embarrassing), feel free to skip it. There's no pressure to do all the tasks, and no prizes apart from the getting the write the next one.

Participants in the LC usually post a description of their dreams in the Dream Journal forum, and post in this thread a short post describing which task they think they've completed, hyperlinking to the full description of the dream in their dream journal. If you don't want to post all your dreams, feel free to leave some of them out. It's also OK to leave out parts of dreams, and just post the bit where you did the task, leaving out the more embarrassing elements. For example, it would appear that many participants, both male and female, are having a lot of sex with dream characters. It is totally OK to skip that bit if you feel embarassed to admit it. (But you needn't be embarrassed: nearly everyone's doing it too...)

A word of caution: excessive sleep deprivation can be dangerous. Please don't deprive yourself of sleep in an attempt to become lucid more often; it shouldn't be necessary.

Sign-Ups

As usual, we will need a total of 10 participants before we start. To sign up, post a message in this thread, copying the current list of sign ups and adding your own name at the end. Please use this format:

<number>. <forum name> - <personal goal>

e.g. 1. Susan_Y - Swim underwater

Your sign up can optionally include a character you want to transform into and/or a personal goal you want to achieve while lucid.

The character transformation is worth 5 points for each task you complete as the character. The personal goal is worth 100 points if achieved in a lucid dream. In previous challenges, the personal goal hasn't been worth any points in a non-lucid dream, but I'm going to make a rule change and say it's worth 20 points if achieved in a non-lucid dream. If you do it twice, in both lucid and non-lucid dreams, you only get the 100 points. Dreams where you don't become fully lucid, but somehow remember the task and do it, are close enough to controlling the dream that I think they should get some points.

Week 1 - Late for School
Week 2 - Star Wars
Week 3 - Pirates!
Week 4 - Magic

  4. Obfusc8 - Summon and do a different task with every LC participant


To challenge myself I'm activating the higher difficulty setting - only claiming tasks and goals completed while lucid plus only lucid dreams in which I complete a task. Also, skipping character points. I prefer to do different transformations, not the same one over and over...

And my goal becomes more difficult the more people sign up, so c'mon, gimme a challenge! siiw

EDIT: changed goal to be a task completion because just speaking... meh. Also means I can't claim lucid points just for summoning and talking to someone. (And it needs to be a different task each time)

Heeyyy! It's me, the guy that gets a lucid dreams every now and then and generally gets nothing done in them. Yep, still trying to reach the frozen planet when I get a chance/ remember it in the dream. If I find a spaceship and try to pilot it towards the frozen planet or if I jump into a wormhole that leads to the frozen planet, that's a solid attempt and will count as success for my personal goal. That's because even getting that far takes a lot, it seems. If I manage to open a door to another planet, I'll count that too, even if it doesn't lead to the right planet. If you feel that this personal goal is too subjective, I'll change it.

Hi everyone,
well I have had 3 LDs this week, so I just hope I ll keep on being good in this LC. smile
So my personal goal is to freeze time so that every DC stop moving for a little while. I will try to have it last a bit so that I can move and play around while the time is frozen.

EDIT: My Character Transformation will be a Koala of course!



Current LD goal(s): Do smth on stage in front of an audience

@Letaali: That's fine as a personal goal. As long as you remember in the dream that the Frozen Planet is your objective, and make any kind of attempt to reach it, that'll count for points.

(I've had dreams where I can remember the task I'm trying to do, but can't manage to do it. The extinct animal task in last LC was an example for me; I only completed that task after then end of the LC).

Well I did my personal goal last night, although it doesn't mean anything yet :D I attempted to go to the frozen planet in a lucid dream. Made an apartment building fly. I was trying to teleport the whole building to the frozen planet, but had no success.

11. En'enra - Reach the safe house again

Like last time, I probably won't be able to go through the whole LC, but I'd like to have some goals, since I didn't have anything to focus on in recent LDs. I want to enter the same safe house described in one of my recent DJ entries.
