Time (Reality vs. Dream)
PostPosted: Tue 08 Mar, 2011  Reply with quote

This is a question that I must admit that I've had for some time now without an answer...Does time in a dream match with time in real life, or is it slower (like Inception) or possibly faster? In other words, if I was dreaming now, would an hour of waking life be 2 hours or so or 10 minutes in dream time? whatsthat

Stephen LaBerge and his research team have made experiments on this and proved that time in dream was about the same that in reality. If I remember right, they asked lucid dreamers to do push ups or some other work out in a dream ; they had to send a signal with their eyes when they began to work out and when they were done. (Because, in case you don't know it yet, when you move your "dream eyes", your real ones (of your real body) move the same way).

Actually there are things you can do to trick your mind into thinking time has gone on longer. For instance, if you read WritersCube's DJ he spends significantly longer in dreams than he does sleeping he has a technique called the "dream clock" which we have another topic. I'm on my phone now but I'll try to find the link later

So this is a way to actually gain more time, or just an illusion?

When my dad wakes me up he shakes me, which in dreams can be absolute hell. I'm not sure why but usually I seem to be running over the earthquake disaster land for 2-3 minutes before I wake up and enter reality. I think that it just depends on the person's perception of my time, the dream clock idea is just awesome.


Current LD goal(s): Fuck bitches.

I've had lucid dreams that have spanned over multiple days, and I ended up waking myself up because I was positive that I must have way overslept my alarm and was getting anxious about missing work.

I can remember many hours worth of actions and details, so in my opinion there must be at least some sort of illusory mechanism that makes dream events seem longer than WL ones.

Perhaps the events we are actively a part of are 1:1 but maybe things that we just observe can be stretched out.

Few days ago, I had a dream and I'm sure it was only 1 hour in real life, but it was about 2 days in dream.
Also, I've read about guy, that claimed that he spent 100 years in a dream in one night.

So I'd say the time is distorted in dreams, but of course, this can differ. Not only everyone is different, but also every dream is different. colgate
