Alright, you said it not me. But...I hear you.
Here's a question:
Does anyone grapple with the moral & ethical issues surrounding possible actions in dreams?
Haha, this thread is taking a turn as details come out.
At least in the one case where I took control, no, I never have. The circumstances didn’t disturb me in the way they played out, and what happened didn’t seem unwelcome. The odds of that being the case in real life are slim to none, obviously it’s different and you’ve gotta know better, but I’ve never gotten to a point where it felt like I should beat myself up over it.
Haven't really had that experience, although my dreams are either very pleasant or very banal. My wife has very stressful, work-related scenarios; I get ice cream cones ...with sprinkles! We laugh.
One version: I'm about to swing a golf club (don't play golf, don't own clubs...), but I'm standing in the middle of the aisle in a grocery store. As I look up to line up the shot, the grocer is standing there, just shaking his head. So I put the club down...
Have dreams where I can fly, unassisted, just soaring. Or where I'm hopping down steep mountain sides, like a goat and it's tons of fun. Skiing dreams too.
oh, yeah, randomly and rarely, NSFW dreams. Those are very pleasant. But they are very rare, dang it.
I have Sleep Apnea.
Before I was diagnosed and put on a CPAP Machine, I had some very weird dreams!
Sometimes, I could control them but, it was my Brain being deprived of Oxygen.
I never had dreams like that. Lately I dream I'm a Walmart greeter.
A decent block of super strong extra mature cheddar last thing at night, is the trick for me.
flying is fun... and other things.
Recently I had a dream where my upstairs AC unit was leaking water all over our carpet in the hall.
I was frantically trying to figure out where the leak was, when I realized we don't have carpet in the hall anymore, it is now wood.
I knew it was a dream, and thought, "How cool!". I started to walk through the rest of the house to see what it looked like in the dream, but I almost immediately woke up before I took even a few steps.
Not only nightmarish but also that moral & ethical dilemma I mentioned earlier!
Yes. Might was well be in a freshman philosophy seminar.
There was this one involving a women's basketball team that was going really well, then my girlfriend kicked me and woke me up.
Well, you were probably dribbling.
Morals & ethics may in some cases directly relate to inhibitions, and the topic is maybe about acting without inhibition in dreams where there are theoretically no consequences.
Take the trained martial artist for example who finding themselves faced with a boorish fist swinger might choose not to fight.
Does action taken in dreams mold our waking character?
Or only reflect it?
Or neither or both?
That's funny because I really dream with my machine I did before I got it but with machine even more so.
I started lucid dreaming in high school. Since then, I've read a few books about it; there's techniques and exercises you can do to gain more control over the process. It is really fun. I agree with Tom Waits: You are innocent when you dream. Highly recommended as a hobby.
