I challenge everyone to come up with something that's actually impossible to do within a dream. The only limitation is that it must not interact with reality, like shared dreaming or foreseeing the physical future. Anything outside your head basically.

Remember, if you can't do something in your dreams it doesn't mean it cant be done. Many people struggle with reading, and most people get different numbers if they check the clock twice. But it is not impossible to read or get the same number twice from a clock. Some people have even died in their dream.

My theory is that you can dream about everything you can imagine and a little more. Even breaking the laws of logic. nervous I have a weak memory that I once dreamed of a door being opened and closed at the same time...

Oh you've got to be kiddin' me... I took the effort to write this all only to find out that once I posted it someone else had already posted the idea in 1 sentence. sadblauw Anyway here's my... elaborate idea.

See more colors then fit in our spectrum.

We humans can see a certain range of frequencies as visual light. It is known that some animals, cows for example, only have 2 different color receptors (as opposed to our human 3) and therefore can see a smaller range of colors. Logic tells me that if you were able to see a larger range of frequencies you would be able to see colors that we can't.
But I say we humans can't even imagine them, because our visual centrum in the brain just can't cope with it.

So I think even your subconcious in a dream can't come up with a new color that does not fit in our lightspectrum

I'm wanting to say I saw a new color in an ND when I was very young. That, or it was simply a FM telling me that it was a new color when it really wasn't...

I have actually heard more than once about people seeing new colors with Astral Projection. But it was a good suggestion. I can't recall seeing new colors in dreams.

How would we know that it was a new color and not some weird shade of a current color?

Here is the one of the texts about new colors in Astral Projection that i mentioned: http://www.astralvoyage.com/projection/filter_english .html read Colors.

The colors and the entire vision in my dreams are very different from the real world. I wouldn't call them new colors, but maybe a different kind of color.

Such as? Remember WASD is not counting anything like dreams interacting with real life.

Everyone have different opinions on that. In this thread I decided to exclude interaction with the real world.

if it's all fake then it seems to me like masturbation or something.

@tinkerbell:
LDing feels just as real as waking life. There's nothing fake about that.
The only thing that no-one has proved yet is, as Rhewin and WASD explained, is interaction with the real world from a dream, and interaction with other people's dreams. Think of this as some sort of telepathy, and you can make up your own mind about that.

if you know it's not real then you shouldn't get so excited about it should you?

It feels real and it feels awesome. I've never thought something like "This is boring because it isn't real" about my dreams neither while I'm awake nor in the dream.
