I've thought about this a long time. Imagination can a powerful instrument!
Maybe I try to shoot a hole into my head, next time I'm lucid...wink5

Hopefully, I can tell you about the results...rofl

I'm seriously interested in this - I've died in dreams before, but what if you actually comitted suicide. In a normal dream it probably wouldn't matter, but in a LD where you have a direct connection with the sub-conscious...? Obviously killing yourself could be symbolic of something, eg. getting rid of an unwanted habit in the brain, but what if you somehow willed your real body into shutting itself down, or told yourself to stop breathing? Any volunteers for a trail run? No?

in the matrix they mention this, if your mind convinces its self you are dead then theoretically you will die.

ld's i think are much like the matix, like when neo tries to jump from one building to the other it can be done if you think you can. i had my first proper ld last night and i tried to fly but landed on my face 2 times. maybe because i jumped before i flew hoping to start flying in the air. but.... no deal.

actually i just remembered that if you think its reality then your mind will convince your body...

i just answered my own question, however its an interesting topic.

One night, I dreamed that I was put on a sidewalk by two men. They told me that they would give me 2 injections. The first one would make me dizzy, the second one would kill me...as soon as I got the second injection, I had a blackout...it was a pretty weird feeling...I saw pure darkness. You could define this kind of darkness as a kind of matter. Matter of the afterlife......a curved light blue shimmering surface, connected with what we call "reality". It was an almost spiritual experience!! wiske

I've been killed many times. The worst was when I witnessed a murder and the murderer caught me and put a gun to my head and said "goodbye". I felt a blow to the head and woke up.

Very intense and interesting....

When I was about six years old, I died in a dream and went to Hell. I eventually woke up, of course, but it was rather disturbing...

Actually, I think the Matrix is about lucid dreaming... it makes so many references to it.

injected with death

Ginkgothian - I like your description of matter of the afterlife.

Your experience, reminded me of a similar one, in which a guy told me I was going to have acid. I wasn't really up for it at all, and was praying that 'it wasn't a full trip', as I hadn't had any time to prepare for it. He just injected me with it, and next thing I know the trip is heavily building in intensity.

My ability to use third eye becomes quite powerful, and I can perceive the energy around me. Though it is a bit intense, and the overpowering sense of death begins to overwhelm me. The dream ends, with this water splurting out of my body. It wasn't the nicest of experiences, but was an itnerestning state of mind nevertheless.

Yeah, I think the matrix is about LDing aswell, but I'm sure that you can't die just from dying in a dream.

I have died in a LD before and a normal dream and i'm still alive.

But, i have also had a LD where i could control my dream body independently from my real body. I could choose witch one to move. But i wonder what would happen if i got mixed up and in a LD i went and killed myself for fun and say, got a knife and stabbed myself. Well if i got confused i might kill myself in real life. with a knife.
However, if i tried to kill myself by jumping off a building in real life then there wouldn't be a problem unless i lived on a tall building.

But about the brain thinking you're dead and killing you... It might believe that you're dead, but i think that the natural and automatic functions of the body would continue. If you were dead why would it worry what it was doing... its dead.

Isn't this a lovely topic eh
