For this LC, I might only post weekly or so (with dated dreams from my paper diary).

I have recently had the thought that logging on to a forum (e.g. to post dreams) every morning is potentially a slightly bad habit.

P.S. I love you all! This is such a great community! But I have reservations about the Internet in general ... one of the greatest enablers of procrastination/avoidance that humanity has ever devised.

So I may be doing an " I am not an addict" demonstration this time.

Susan's comment hit a nerve... enough to make me want to change my personal goal. As this seems to be a challenge about habits, then breaking probably my worst habit seems like a good shout. (Not that exercise isn't an important habit, but blah blah something something rest days.) So I'd like to change my personal goal to be: No mindless phone browsing while watching TV.

This is gonna be tough. help!

I don't know what the effect giving up the Internet for the challenge will be. It's possible the effect on my sleep will be that I have no recall at all. If that happens, I'll take that as an interesting experimental result, and won't be disappointed about getting a low score in the challenge.

Week 1: The Great Library

the challenge begins! if you havent signed up yet, you have until the end of the day, as points will start to count tomorrow.

the theme of this challenge is The Great Library. here is where our story begins:

Click here to see the hidden message (It might contain spoilers)



The Great Library: Week 1: Science Fiction

its time to get back into shape to lucid dream, and fortunately the great library has provided you with a log book. in addition to writing your dreams, you can also keep track of the points youve earned for other things on a day to day basis.

this weeks special challenges are:

🏅 find a robot, alien, superhero, or spaceship in a nonlucid or lucid dream (each thing can be found once per person, many in one day is fine)
📕 find a book in a nonlucid or lucid dream (you can contribute one per day. dream journals dont count because the library already has it.)
📘 dream a science fiction dream (this is in addition to, and separate from, finding any of the four scifi objects. you can also contribute one per day.)
👑👑👑 actively use a piece of futuristic scifi technology, in a lucid or nonlucid dream (can be done once total)

actively using a piece of technology means you arent just along for the ride in a spaceship, but are piloting the ship. you arent just talking to a robot, but programming the robot and giving it orders. it will be up to your judgement whether you think you have earned the points for this and any other challenge item.

here is a recap of the points you can earn:

how to keep your own log book

for this challenge youll be keeping your own log book so you can see at a glance how well you are keeping up good dreaming habits. you can use “stickers” to keep track of points if you like, or use letter abbreviations. they are all worth 1 point so you can use whatever you want, i just find it helpful to keep track of my progress if i use different emoji.

here is a sample week where i write in my dj ✍️ every morning, remember my morning 🛌 and personal 🚗 reality checks sometimes, start out strong with my personal goal ⭐️ but start slacking after a while, see a few books 📕, and have a science fiction dream by the end of the week. 📘
Quote:

week 1

sun: ✍️🛌⭐️
mon: ✍️🛌🚗⭐️📕
tues: ✍️⭐️
wed: ✍️🛌⭐️📕
thurs: ✍️🚗
fri: ✍️🛌🚗
sat:✍️🚗📘📕


the same log in abbreviation form might start like this:

Quote:
sun: dj, rc, pg
mon: dj, rc, prc, pg, bk


or you can write it out:

Quote:
wed: dj, morning rc, personal goal, book
thurs: dj, personal rc


however you want! you can even make a spreadsheet checklist if that is your jam.

and finally, for items with more points you just use more stickers, for example if the next week I start having lucid dreams and other higher point goals, my log book might look like this:

Quote:
week 2

sun: ✍️🛌🚗⭐️💤💤
mon: ✍🛌🚗📕📘👑👑👑
tues: ✍️🛌⭐️💤💤💤⏱⏱⏱⏱⏱


make sure that you post your log regularly here and also tell us about your progress, your dreams, and whatever struggles you may have! you can hide your log book in spoiler tags once it starts getting long. also write your dreams in your personal dream diary thread in the forum, and link them from a post here.

and most importantly, find some books! the library needs you! right now it only has the two books it started with. The Book of LD4all (which, you realize, is open right now!) and your log book:

Books in the Great Library: 📖📔

the librarian requests "a few dozen" books. can we reach 36 books by the end of the challenge?

Ok, my Internet detox starts now -- see you all in a week.

By a strange co-incidence, I'm going through some stuff in my life right now, so my dreams may be weird for other reasons.

First night wasn't great, but I've fixed my sleep schedule. Tomorrow will be better. I did meditate before sleep at least.

Quite a first night for me: had a dream with SF elements and dreamt of a house full of books. Unfortunately I left them all in the bookshelves... But I stumbled on a brand new copy of the Journal of Medical Anthropology!
