T.V Changing my Dreams

Hello, everyone. I did not know where to put this but as this as to do with dreams i'm hoping this will be the right forum for this thread.

Me and my brother who is older were talking about dreams one day. He said that when he sleeps with the T.V on sometimes his dreams are about what he is hearing on the T.V. I've always slept with the T.V. on and never had this happen to me. However, after he told me that i have noticed that when i have the Television on i start to dream about what i'm hearing.

Today while i was napping the TV was showing a show about the situations the U.S. military has encountered during the war. As i was dreaming i had a Military/ Terrorist orientated dream. At one point i was dreaming and i thought to myself oh thats the T.V. and continued on with my dream. The dream was about me being in a house and we were defending it and there were terrorist running around the outskirts of the house and we were shooting at them.

This happens when I'm napping during the day, never at night because i suppose I'm too tired and if i sleep in the day I'm in a lighter sleep. Also i have been trying to control my dreams but with no avail so its not me just manifesting it out of my own will. Also i want to add that sometimes i actually hear the T.V. While im sleeping. I can hear what its saying and then it fades out and i go back deeper into my dream.

Has anyone else had this happened to them? I thought that when your sleeping your mind/ears don't really pay attention to sounds like that. Does anyone know why this happens?

Yes I have had this happen to me many times. The brain is very responsive to suggestion during dreaming, so long as you can recieve the seggestion without waking up. Your left brain is registering the audio from the television and your right brain is using that information to create an image, most likely.

The television is an interesting device... Did you know its first intended use was to recieve images from the spirit realm?

first of all thank you for the quick reply as i just made this thread a few minutes ago.

Second, glad to hear that someone out there also has this happen to them. Very interesting on what you say i have never heard about the television being used to receive images from the spirit realm. I'll have to look that up thank you for that. Also would this than be similar to hypnosis? Since you are in a sleeping/trance state and are still responding to things?

Ive had those midday dreams.

Once I swear, swear, I got stuck in one, and for the whole day, I couldn't figure out if I was dreaming or not, reality felt fake, and fake felt really, more or less I was pretty out of it the rest of the day, still cannot tell what really happened or not, everything coincided so well.

Bizarre dreams, only happened to me overall twice.

Try sleeping with a radio on. You will notice that sometimes songs have a way of entering your dreams too.

Yeh I've had it with the radio a few times.

One time a person in my dream was speaking the words of the song that was on the radio at the time. Another time there was a song on the radio with a screeching guitar bit in it and everytime that played a car did a burnout in my dream (?).

A few times I have heard my alarm clock going off in my dream. I actually told myself (in my dream) 'Hey, that my alarm clock. Time to wake up'.

Yes, strange things dreams.

i've also had tv / radio interconnect with my dreams. the thing that really blows me away about this is how fast your brain integrates the outside influence into your dream. in real time.

for instance if you happen to wake up suddenly what is happening from the stimulus is actually happening at that very moment in your dream. the brain is a very amazing thing and i seriously don't think we understand the dream machine very well yet.

i also think there's something very real to dreaming that we may not have been enlightened to yet. maybe this is a true skunk work that is right in front of us that's totally under the radar.

i'd sure like to know what science really knows about this. (the more hidden side of it)

Although I do not recall dreaming tv perse, I often fall asleep watching tv and upon waking find myself feeling the need to grab a pen and paper to jot down the phone number the infomercial keeps repeating over and over and over again. I detest these infomercials yet I wake wanting whatever product they are offering. Oh and "think" I NEED the product. Until I am completely in my senses anyway! Note to self: use the darn sleep timer!

Experiments have shown that external stimuli can influence dreams [1]. One experience I had in 2007 was falling asleep during a C-SPAN broadcast and dreaming that I was in a post-apocalyptic compound where Mitt Romney was consoling a crowded group of families spread across multiple rooms all the while I was trying to escape feeling suffocated. I awoke to Mitt Romney doing a campaign meet-and-greet.

I have had more experiences with a different kind of stimuli which I consider to be electromagnetic radiation. These dreams seem to happen every night of which I will sometimes recall during unrelated circumstances. For example while on an induced train-of-thought out of nowhere a completely unrelated dream I had several nights or weeks before will materialize in my mind and stabilize my mood. A strange dream I had recently was in a half-awake, half-asleep state where the Snuggles bear was vividly saying to me "Snuggles loves you" all the while my mental state had reverted to how I was as a child.
I think in some cases this has to do with the government remotely crafting neural networks of emotional memory to be triggered at will so as to influence behavior similar to MKULTRA triggers. I consider advertising campaigns as having significant utility as such 'trojans'. For example a few years ago I recalled a Crazy Eddie commercial and being in a suggestible state it seemed like Crazy Eddie was one of my alter-egos programmed to be a killer. This commercial had left an indelible mark on me as a young child and had remained dormant until I recalled it at this time.
This is the closest Crazy Eddie commercial I could find to the one I remember which consisted of only a black background, yellow lettering and Jerry Carroll
