My dreams are detailed enough to have maps... and if I thought about it, I could probably redraw the maps of the world.

Now that's what I call an awesome dream. Visually projecting the ability to travel in space and in a pragmatic (in terms of current technology) manner is amazing! I am jealous, Byrd

My dreams are always in color and always from first person view. My dreams always feel real to me no matter what kind of crazy # happens (Flying, being youger/older, different historical period, strange place) except that time my dream had ending credits with a theme song just before I woke up! watched too much TV maybe?

I never die in my dreams, I always seem to avoid danger in Matrix style ways, time just slows down enough for me to narrowly escape death but it still scares the hell outa me! Weapons rarely work the way they are supposed to in my dreams. How many times have I faced danger in my dream and my gun is broken or it takes a lot of srenght to pull the trigger or little to no ammo.

I remember one dream in paticular where I died.
It was in third person view as usual. There wasnt any colour.

Suddenly my dreamself woke up and walked over to the mirror by the nightstand. I knew I didnt know what was going on. Then the door came into colour.

My dreamself opened the door even though I didnt want to. A murderer with some kind've mask on surprised me and my dreamself as he rushed into the room. He killed my dreamself by strangulation I screamed but no sound came(sound never comes in my dreams).

Then I woke up. This was christmas eve and I woke up on christmas. My throught felt strangeled and I found out later I had swollen glands.

some people might get offended if you say creative
people dream in color and the not creative deam in black and white. Not me-- Of course people dream in color. Maybe that person was blind or can hardly remember their dreams.

I was just making a guess with that statement. It wasn't to be taken seriously.

I dream in black and white but I am colorblind anyhow.

I seldom dream to begin with and if I do I am either back in the jungle, back in the Pen or back in the saddle
, if you know what I mean

I had this strange dream once. It was one of the few dreams I have had where it took place in this time period. Well, a slightly altered version of it. Its also the only dream I have died in. It has been said that if you die in a dream, you die in the real world.

Anyways, I can't remember the specifics of the dream. But I do remember the hospital portion of my dream pretty vividly. I was placed on one of those emergency bed things. I was dying, for one reason or another. The doctors were trying to keep me from passing. All their work seemed fruitless, I died. I heard the hospital heart rate monitor flat line, "beeeeppppppppppp." Through out the ordeal, I could see everything going on from above (typical OBE).

And then, CPR was performed and a defibrillator was used. I could feel the shocks. First shock failed. Second shock, success! Upon the arrival of second shock, in my dream, I heard "clearrr!" And in my dream I "awoke" from my death. The only other voice I heard was a mysterious one that did not come from any of the doctors, it said, "you're alive."

Strangely enough, when the word "clear" was being said, I actually awoke in the real world, immediately. I could feel the effects of the defibrillator in the real world. The electricity had surged through me - my heart was fluttering. Even stranger, the voice that said, "you're alive," was said to me in the real world after I had "awakened" from the dream. And I know it wasn't my inner voice saying it - it wasn't me, I could feel it.

For clarification, my revival, after the word "clear" in my dream, was only a split second before I awakened to the real world.

Someones thoughts?

I have dreamed "some" future. Whether it is ours is left to question. Almost all my dreams occur in some future timeline. They also occur in first person, most of the time. Sometimes they may be viewed in third person (I'm not limited to any perspective). Some take place in this solar system, others do not. I always get the feeling that I somehow know the events I am involved with, in the dreams.

I have had one dream that involves the "greys," yet, this dream occurred when I was much younger - before I started reading, and watching, the stuff I do now. Because of that, I know that those sort of things didn't influence my dream. I didn't think about that dream very much until I got older. I probably had that dream 8-9 years ago. I won't delve into the dream in this post, but I was older in the dream, much older.

While some dreams are simply one too many pickles before going to bed and mean nothing at all, I do place a good bit more emphasis on others. I think that there is more going on sometimes than just 'brain zaps'. Hard to explain, but sometimes it just feels different.

Like the deja vu-type dreaming of the future. How could this be possible if there were not something going on there that would allow viewing of a different time-frame, yet to be arrived at?

And I've definitely had outside stimuli butt in on dreams before. A good example is music, as I see others have found (makes me feel better!). In particular I remember one dream, again I don't remember the bulk of it. But at the end, someone was waking me up from the middle of a dream sequence (calling my name, talking to me, etc.), and I realized then that I was dreaming and that's what was happening. Strangely, I was still in the dream, and the people I was talking to (in the dream) just looked at me in sudden, abject horror--as if I'd spontaneously combusted, turned into a giant weasel, or something similarly unexpected. So if these people were just figments of my dreaming could they have been horrified when I realized I was dreaming?
It was as if they heard the (real) person talking to me too, like over one of those public-emergency PA systems.

Weird stuff, dreams.

I can dream in color. In fact im sure everyone who has experienced color can vouch.

Lately i've been dreaming and having nightmares every night. I'm starting to hate it... I'll either be running from zombies, ufos floating in the air and occasionally from trex's looking in my window and crashing through the walls..... I love jurassic park though so I dont mind.... My dreams are so vivid, seem real all the time, thats why I get so caught up in them. I swear they're like friggin movies. I wish the nightmares would just go away... I wish i could control my dreams, no matter how hard i try before my sleep to tell myself I will know when i'm awake and when I'm dreaming, It doesnt work. Once I'm sleeping and dreaming It's like im in a whole nother state of mind, not remembering the world or my life when I'm awake, besides having people i know in my life in my dreams. I want to be able to control my dreams. I used to hate scary movies when i was younger up until like age 14... then i realized that my parents let me watch scary ass movies like jason, freddy and all those other weird scary movies when I was too young to even remember watching them! "You loved them" Now when i think back it was a really stupid move on my parents part, the reason why I liked them was because I was too young to understand them. I think this might be the cause of my wild horrific dreaming imagination. I wish I could just have normal dreams or none at all. Its like my mind gets a kick out of scaring the # out of me while im sleeping. The way it feels to me when I'm dreaming is like I have no control in them my mind just randomly wanders thinking. Most of my dreams have never really been slow and mundane, always fast paced.

My dreams, compared to other peoples experiences, seem very odd. Mine are always in color, NEVER fully in first person (sometimes swiches in-between first and third), and I always feel pain in third person.

Nothing serious ever happens when im in the first person, like when im standing around. But as soon as i start talking to someone (or getting attacked by enemy ninjas) it automaticaly switches to third. I think I have kindey/liver/some other organ problem, and every so-often it begins hurting alot without reason, enough to wake me up. Anyways, whenever it starts "acting up" while I am asleep, I am always stabbed or just begin grabbing myself in that area.

I always seem to incrperate music and such as some people have mentioned before, even other people talking to me, trying to wake me up.

Another thing I find weird is the actual "quality" of the dream. Some dreams seem to have the plot equivalent to an episode of pokemon, and very little detail put into the "animation" (ill call it that cause i have no clue what else to call it). Others, however, are very vivid, have great detail in the visuals, and the plot and underlying themes leave me thinking about them for up to 3 hours, reflecting upon the symbols and everything used in storys. With very little variations from my original I think I could make a fairly interesting story, which I could never acheive while consious. Hell, I remember now that some dreams use poetry that fits perfectly into what i am doing in the dream (99% sure that I have not read them before, they can be very personal).

God, I never though this would be so long
. I guess I better stop.

BAHHHH i keep on posting on the wrong things...sorry!

Ive never heard that "we only dream in black and white."

This is most definetly not true, at least IMO. I've never had a dream in black in white. Mine always seem realistic with normal colors and everything.

I always dream in color and they range from boring to nuts, but I have had two dreams (that I can recall) where I dreamed in black and white.

It really sticks with you the black and white, but only two time I can remember my whole life and I had both b&w dreams when I was a kid.

i mean sometimes a dream may be more real than when you are awake.

Actually, I've always understood dreams to be the flotsam and jetsam of everything that happened to you in real life the day before. It's your subconscious trying to sort it all out. That's why all the symbolism in dream interpretation etc.

What is a dream and what is reality ? Hard to say. I've had some strange experiences and to me they are always real.

I've had spontaneous astral projections (which seem to have stopped since I quit smoking pot..which is strange, although it still happens once in a while. but I always stop it when it starts, because it scares the Hell out of me). These were definitely real.

Then I've had the 3 or so occasions when Pisky and I were apart for two years and we were able to be together in our sleep somehow. Don't ask me how. All I knew was that we were together those 3 times. And it was very real.

Then there are the recurring ones, which I've had off and on my whole life.

Dreams aren't just nonsensical electric impulse. They are our given gifts in which to understand ourselves and help us best during our waking lives.

my dreams...well they freak me out sometimes...

i dream in color, with sound, sensation of touch, smell taste...all of the senses are alive in some of my dreams. in fact during some of these dreams i felt like i was in reality, it felt so real, to smell things, feel sunlight on your face when you're really sleeping in a pitch black room in the dead of the night... to taste things like food...its really freaked me out sometimes.
