LD in a dream
PostPosted: Mon 02 Apr, 2007  Reply with quote

Well I think the title says it all. I had a lucid dream inside of a dream. It felt very lucid, and I stuck my hand through a wall and lowered gravity grin. It felt like my ND was the real world, and my lucid dream was a dream in there. When I woke up from the LD, still in the ND, that was a false awakening. Then I awoke for real.

Is this considered a lucid dream? Can I count this in my sig?

I'd personally say that is should count as LD, you did knew you were dreaming.

But this is discussable topic, alternative definion of false lucid dream in LD4all is :
Quote:
alternative definition: FLD = False Lucid Dream - you fall asleep in a normal dream and you become lucid. You could be very lucid but still you think that the guy which fell asleep in the normal dream is the "real", waking you (BrainHacker)
. But IMO you were lucid, because you knew that you were dreaming right in moment.

So, it's for sure concidered. But it's not sure a LD. I'd say it was a LD after all.

@Li10

Quote:
LD = Lucid Dream - A dream where you "wake-up" within the dream and you realize your surroundings are a dream.

Well, he DID know that he was dreaming so it does fits in LD. As long there is lucidicy, the dream is lucid.

Well you were dreaming that you were having an LD, so no, it doesn't count. I had once... it was the best dream ever. Best normal dream ever, anyway. Sorry.


Hmm...Well at the exact moment I was LDing, I knew perfectly well that I was in a lucid dream. Would it matter if there is another dream nested outside of it?

Results so far:
Yay: 1
Nay 1

Hmm...I'll wait for a few more opinios smile

I would say it was lucid .. you had the awareness of being lucid not just going through the motions.

i'll make a poll for you thumbs

I don't think it was, because I had one like that, apart from it wasn't me having an LD in a dream, I was dreaming of being lucid. But it wasn't a lucid dream, I know. I didn't have any control, I just went with the flow even though I knew I was dreaming.

you Li10 are basing your opinion on the false LD that you experienced wink5

GARGH!! It's too hard!

Well I am sort of basing it on that, Moogle, but also...

isn't everything in dreams fake? As in, not real, not waking life? Well then wouldn't the LD he had in the dream be fake? Like how you never actually out your hands through walls or flew?

I have had a LD like that yes I say it's LD, since you were aware you were dreaming (like moogle also pointed out).

You can also call this a lucid meta dream. I believe the definition is in the LD4all dictionary topic too. *pokes duck*

If you knew you were LDing then why did you go to sleep?

Oh, I think you misunderstood me. I was not lucid in my dream, and then I had a dream inside of that dream which I became lucid. I was fully aware I was in a dream and did some things, but when I woke up, still in the first dream, I though that was reality.


Thanks for all your opinions. So far most people voted "lucid" so I guess I will add one to my sig. Thanks for your help.

I would also go with it being an LD. If you had an ND in an ND everyone would agree that it was an ND, so why would an LD in an ND not be an LD?
Like Moggle said, you knew that you were dreaming, so it was an LD. I think that we can argue over how lucid you were, but the fact that you knew that you were dreaming means that you were lucid.
