Mind Games

Some of you may or may not know, but I have been endeavoring to explore some of the metaphysical aspects of my mind.

I have been trying remote view, time travel in my mind, have out of body experiences, as well as enter other people's dreams... or at least attempt to communicate with them through a shared dream.

I have with practice been able to lucid dream with fair regularity. If you have never lucid dreamed before, I recommend it completely. Sure you know you are in the matrix, but you control the program so it is more like being a god than anything I can think of. So far I have not been able to time travel or remote view once I have reached this state because attempting to do so usually disintegrates the dream and wakes me up. It feel like it is because I am not good enough at it yet, not because it is not possible. Sort of like when you were learning to ride a bike and you would get short stints of being able to stay up and then you fall over. It feels remarkably like that.

As far as communicating with other people via dream I believe I have come close if not actually have done it. The problem is remembering during the dream that I want to do that, (When you can make all your fantasies come true sometimes it is easy to forget the scientific experiments you meant to do.) and the second problem is that the person who's dreams you are trying to enter/communicate with might not be in the right dream state at the same time to make this happen. Even if they are in the right state, verification may not be possible because they may not remember their dreams or might not know to tell you communication was real and successful. It is also possible that once I wake up, I forget as well.

So, what I am getting at: If you do find that I have been in your dream some time, please send me an email or message letting me know what happened in the dream, what day, and an approximate time that you had the dream. This way I can start to verify what I think is happening. REMEMBER: THIS IS FOR SCIENCE!

What I have found when I do attempt to contact a particular person in dream land is that most of the time this contact takes the form of a phone call where they don't answer. (I assume this is because they are awake or not in the right dream state.)

On to remote viewing and out of body experiences. It seems the prevailing thought on how to do this is to induce sleep paralysis in yourself, and then when your body is stuck just step/float/slide out of it. Sleep paralysis is effectively when your body is asleep and disconnected from your mental ability to induce motor functions. It is sort of a safety feature of humans so we don't act out our dreams in bed. There are some tricks for making your body fall asleep while your mind is still totally awake and conscience. I have been able to do this several times but to be honest it is very scary to do. It feels like your whole body is under a huge thick wet mattress or plunged under water or put under weight. Being totally awake and not connected to your body this way is very disconcerting. So far I have not been able to get out of my body once I have disconnected myself from it. The scary part is being stuck in your own body but unable to control it. The next step will be to figure out how to get out of my body once I have disconnected from it.

That is all. Bed time.

"He had read much of things as they are, and talked with too many people. Well-meaning philosophers had taught him to look into the logical relations of things, and analyse the processes which shaped his thoughts and fancies. Wonder had gone away, and he had forgotten that all life is only a set of pictures in the brain, among which there is no difference betwixt those born of real things and those born of inward dreamings, and no cause to value the one above the other. Custom had dinned into his ears a superstitious reverence for that which tangibly and physically exists, and had made him secretly ashamed to dwell in visions. Wise men told him his simple fancies were inane and childish, and even more absurd because their actors persist in fancying them full of meaning and purpose as the blind cosmos grinds aimlessly on from nothing to something and from something back to nothing again, neither heeding nor knowing the wishes or existence of the minds that flicker for a second now and then in the darkness."
