Yes, every sense you have in real life is there in a lucid dream. It really depends on how lucid you are as to how powerful they are, if it is a low level LD then everything will probably be quite dim or low resolution. If you are lucky enough to get a high level LD in which you are fully consious, all senses seem as real (or even more) than in real life. You might even find some you didn't know you had. eek2
I think vision is the least "stable" of the senses in a dream, as it is usually (in my experience) the first to start disapperaing when a dream is ending.

Not everybody has all their senses in (all) their dreams. There can be simple stuff like only having one eye, or seeing black and white, but also things without apparent reason like having no sense of taste.

There are a few people around here (or who were around here) who have claimed to add new senses or extend their current ones. (Pedro being the famous example, doing 360-degree vision, sonic vision, etc, etc)

One must wonder whether you never dreamt the sense, or just never remembered it. eh

So far for me the most powerful has been visual aspect. The colors too frequently happen to be more in contrast than IRL. As about taste and smell, i have more powerful experiences with that in NDs so far. So far i have experienced smelling in few NDs only. Hearing - average in both LD and ND. Touching was at least once the connection that made me lucid from ND.

But it's only me and some of my LDs so far.

In my dreams all my senses are there, and i have extra senses that i dont know what to call but i know they are there......
like i can feel what other DC's feel or see , i can get into the head of any DC from where i am in a dream and experience all there senses,
I have excelent sight and hearing and i can feel things from many miles away....
In other words if i wanted to see a bug on the top of mountain from 500 miles away, i can doit by just trying and not only that but i can hear his wings flapping or his feet moving and if i wanted to, i could become the bug and feel everything that the bug feels all while im standing 500 miles away.....
i could do this with DC's too.........

konnart: So you're lucid in these dreams? Are they all of the dreams you remember? Some? A few?

Dammit, you just gave me that "I want my LD ration, and it's late" ache. *RC*RC*

i do this in mostly all my dreams that i could remember,
and i think that i have never tryd this in a LD, because there's so much other stuff to do......
but my normal dreams are almost as kool as my LD's, the only thing is, is that i these things dont trigger a LD for me,
for some reason my mind percieves it as normal and it just stays a normal dream,
thinking about it , it might be an LD but at very minimal lucidity,
BUT im not sure..........

You have all sense in your LD's. vision is, of coarse, the strongest one. The more you pay attention to a certain sense, the more real and vivid it is.

When I have been lucid (dry for about 6 weeks now) I do know that my sight is better than it is in RL. I can certainly feel things. Tasting, smelling and hearing are certainly not that great.

In my first high lucid dream (unfortunately also the only one) I could FEEL the environment (the walls, the floor, the ceiling and the furniture) it was pretty great so I had '6 senses' pretty scary eh? ^^

For me vision is the greatest and the only one i have experienced. I could see every single detail in my hand like i was looking through a magnifying glass. For the other 4, i had no sensation at all. That is why i posted the topic, to see if other senses were up and running for other LD'ers.

I have all of the normal senses.. The quality of the senses varies from dream to dream though. They are all usually very realistic in high level lucid dreams.

I also can use telepathic like communication during LD's

I can't taste anything in dreams.

When i become lucid, the first sense I notice is sight. Sometimes I have to "drag" the other senses into the dream by forcing myself to feel, smell, etc. The only sense that is better in dreams than IRL, is hearing. siiw
