Sounds impossible to me. I do my best to prolong dreams but i have never noticed anything like "oh the clock is much" after waking up from them. The longest prolongation (is that a word?) I have done is most likely less then 15 minutes physical time.

I have managed DEILD - waking up for seconds after a dream and return to a new one. If you manage to do that many times you can probably reach a noticeable effect on prolonging the total sleep time. Perhaps you can even reach a day. But someone will wake you up before that.

At the worst if all else fails to wake you, being Lucid you know you're dreaming but has anyone actually thought in a LD" hang on, I been here way too long" ??

You'd be enjoying the LD too much to care if you are awake surely, unless you are me and have really scary ones sadblauw



Current LD goal(s): 1 ------ would like 1 controlled one.

This is absolutely impossibile, as many here have already said. First, you can't prolong your REM phase: you just prolong your lucidity period, so when the REM phase ends you'll end up waking up anyway. Secondly, your REM phase is very different from a coma state, and I don't see how they could think that you're in a coma while instead you are sleeping (you even move your REAL eyes in the REM phase).

If you really are worried, put a note on your end table that says, "Don't euthanize me. I'm dreaming lucidly."

The note idea is a thing of pure genius! tounge2
No, I know its impossible, but I asked anyway (I'm not even good at prolonging LDs) because it was one of those things where eventhough you know it couldnt happen, you need someone to tell you its impossible before you believe it. So thank you.

And 2 pages? Wow, I didnt know the idea was so interesting!
