Do you think in your dreams?
PostPosted: Fri 12 Feb, 2010  Reply with quote

In all my LD's, since I came here, I always had trains of thought in my head that accompanied my actions, and I was able to remember them when I woke up. I thought it was a given thing, doing it in daytime and everything.
Some months ago, I started remembering what I was thinking in my unconscious dreams too, and it became interesting to see what reasonings would be going on in my mind to not get it was a dream, with unusual stuff going on all over the place lach1

But lately I've heard of people who never think in dreams, and sort of just "react" to events, even in LD's.
Is it the same for you? Do you think in LD's? And what about your normal dreams? I'm very interested in others' experiences, it makes for a nice research topic. smile

No, I definitely think in my dreams. However, it is true that I often will remember the action and not the thought. It's very similar to WL for me. I remember mostly events and conversations. I remember some important thoughts, and I remember thinking, they're just not crystal clear.

This is a really interesting topic. I don't really think; if I do I'm either lucid or on the verge of lucidity. Usually I just go with the flow. ^^ I just act based on what happens. It's difficult to explain, I hope that wasn't too hard to understand.

I never think in my dreams, sadly xP It would be nice to, though. It's hard to attain lucidity if you don't question anything. wink

Well, when I recall back my LDs,
It seems like that when I think too much, I lose lucidity \ the dream.

My longest LD was more aware and at the moment.

Yeah, I'm not saying thinking is necessarily a good thing. I found myself losing somedreams too because of overthinking, but doing it while keeping aware of the dreamscape works fine for me.

I remember having long and fast train of thoughts which I have I hard time to follow in my NDs. I even once listened to my thoughts for a while and thought "I'm thinking too fast," but I did not become lucid after that. I guess I was just very close. When I'm lucid, I seem to think in a normal pace. The thoughts are almost always questions, by the way (like why something was happening in the dream). I really wonder why I can't realise that I'm dreaming...

i bet the more experienced LDers think in their dreams more because of the sense of lucidity being more comfortable with them, after repetition you can branch out to new areas of expertise. OR its based on how deep you think in WL, not sure.

Interesting, in most of my dreams I actually think, but so much things happen in dreams that I often miss to RC hmm

Some times the thinking has given me an LD woo however, when Im in LD I tend to rather act than think what I want to do cry

I've always had trouble thinking for some reason, I could never articulate a simple sentence in my mind and keep it organized that way... I don't know way my thought process has always been more visual than anything else.

So often times it plays out the same way inside of my dreams.

If I do think, I'm sure its like what Rhewin said, and I only remember the action.
I think that even in RL, I mostly only remember actions (unless I really go off thinking about a lot of stuff). However, it might be that I simply have not improved my DR enough to remember if I do think.
I hope I do, as I don't think an LD would be the same if I didn't think like I do in RL.
