and I woke up with Lloyd Cole and the Commotions' Rattlesnakes playing in my head
how very odd
thats not very good
is about par for the course
or would knowing that it was a dream mess it all up?
again, rather odd and hall-of-mirrors like
the subconscious imagination is a wonderful thing
but how do you know you are dreaming? when i dream i'm immersed in it and have no idea i'm dreaming. is it not the same in a dream or do you just know you're dreaming, like you just know other things for no reason in a dream?
the (2nd layer) dreaming is simply part of the story of your dream that you become aware of after you've woken up
If you have practiced any lucid dreaming techniques then you can be very aware (or indeed 'hyper-aware') of your dream state and can even control or direct the dreaming
last night's dream was just a normal odd dream
the simplest technique is to ask yourself - during normal waking hours - at regular intervals 'is this a dream' or 'am I dreaming'. After a couple of weeks or so you find that you're very aware in your sleep of being in the dream state and after a while you can kind of program your dreams or solve puzzles or even write songs and lyrics using just your subconscious mind while sleeping
I did this a lot when I was a teenager but I've been out of practice for years
technique that keeps your mind active when asleep? Srsly?
Does anyone know one that keeps you even more asleep? I'm not looking for dead or comatose, but one that makes sure that the last thing you can do in your sleep is solve puzzles or write lyrics.
some brainwave binaural hemi-syncing for a shortcut to various asleep or awake states
i will have sweet dreams tonight.
Dreamt I was dreaming that is. It's wonderful.
what a waste of a dream, really
it was well trippy.
Mrs Anschul came home from a trip to the shops excited and happy that she'd made some excellent purchases and also very pleased at having made an acquaintance on her shopping trip - as she was telling me this there was a knock on the door and she opened it to reveal who new shopping buddy; miss j_po Brainlove
they had mixed up each others' bags and so they exchanged them, hugged each other and then I woke up
so what does all this mean?
I'm having such a typo day
to major LOL
