New LD technique called WMBTB discovred by Alex Curtis
PostPosted: Wed 27 Apr, 2011  Reply with quote

First off, I discovered this completely by accident.
For a little tip, I am a very impatient and lazy person.. Ha
Becoming lucid was a big goal for me every night, but
I didn't want to keep a dream journal, nor get up around three
Every morning, and stay up for an hour losing sleep.
So when I discovered this technique, I was blown away.
To start, simply set an alarm for how ever long (I usually have about
4 and a half hours of sleep before attempting) then, get out a sheet
Of paper, and write down math equations, not a lot, just 5-6
Don't try to memorize these, and don't write the answers.
After this, go to sleep like you would normally.
When your alarm goes off, turn it off, and with some to little light
Do the math equations (harder the better, I use things like x5 = 36)
Turn off the light (preferably never getting out of bed if you can)
And start using the WILD technique, simply keep the math equations
In your head, you'll find your body will almost like magic, instantly
Going into sleep paralysis, and you into lucidity. I call this WMBTB. (Wake math back to bed) discovered by Alex Curtis. The reason it works so well, is because math is done in the right brain, lucidity is gained through the left, when all your brain power is focused toward just math, your body will shut down, but you will stay conscious
This is using WBTB and WILD. Thanks for reading

hmm, sounds interesting. so you don't stay up almost at all, right? just do the math in like five minutes, and then lie down and try WILD while thinking of the equations? like trying to solve them again or something?

hm, i'll see about that. but i actually have a problem about calculating (dividing, multiplying) by heart (without a calculator xD), so it might wake me up a little too much.. we'll see. maybe i'll try, if autosuggestion works smile (can't use alarms)

Simply doing math is the point, add and subtract if you need too

Neither do I, but maybe if we find some other things that can stimulate right side of the brain we should gain same results! IMO!

Interesting idea!

I've trouble keeping my mind to a consistent thought during WILD attempts. I'll give math a shot.
If you've to do math for school, this could come even more handy tounge1

True, but I do enough math in school, so no extra math for me!

It was first discovered when I was using the app, ProAlarm, it wakes you up, then has you do math problems to turn the alarm off, worked great, I varied it from there

so... the alarm doesn't stop untill the math equations are solved? overspannen

...that would get me really stressed out and I'd probably smash the alarm clock unto the floor...

This all works fine and well if you don't keep a dream journal, but I do. Now I'd still like to try and see if I could use it, but If I wake up after four hours of sleep, I usually remember a couple of dreams a night so once I woke up I'd undoubtedly have to write down my dream as well, extending the amount of time that I spend awake before going back to sleep. Would this still work, or do you HAVE to do the math really quickly and go back to sleep?
