I had another thread that I posted (my first thread) here
a couple of months ago. I
had some good discussions about life and death and the meaning of. A few nights ago I was dreaming about a bunch of nothing, typical dreamworld
goings on. Well, you know how you have those moments in dreamland where something feels extremely significant? Like so important that it actually
jolts your conscious mind enough to wake you up? Well that happened to me with one "revelation". I was dreaming and suddenly I "heard" a
statement something along the lines of, "When you die, you dream. Forever." Immediately after this thought entered my brain, I was lucid in my
dream, but I panicked. Because I could feel my body dying. I was completely conscious, but still dreaming. Now, I have experimented with lucid
dreaming techniques, but this was different. I was completely in REM, as deep in a typical dream as you can go, but I felt my mind going "deeper".
I felt my consciousness leaving this world, this entire reality. Memories started to fade. I began to forget who I was. I was slipping out of life
and into something else. And I thought I was dying. In a panic I made myself jump and I woke up. This all happened within a few seconds. It was
the some of the strangest few seconds I have ever experienced.
I wonder what would have happened if I didn't make myself wake up? Would I have just continued to dream and woke up later? Was I actually dying?
If so, was it true what I heard? Is death really a long sleep? And if so, do you dream? Forever??
