Default This article will blow your mind

This is an extremely interesting article. However, let me suggest that you approach with very open mind before reading it.

So I have been a member at a forum called Dreamviews for about 6 months now. I joined it because I had a big interest in Lucid Dreaming (the old AF topic about it is where I first heard about it). There is a very interesting subject that the more experienced Lucid Dreamers there have been researching called "Mutual" or Shared Dreaming.

Basically many experienced guys there have reported that if they and a friend are lucky enough to have a lucid dream at the same time, they can meet at a pre-discussed location and each can remember what happened. Even conversation between each other. I guess it requires advanced dream control to change the dream environment to whatever the pre-discussed location is.

The article discusses how it is still a very skeptical topic, and hasn't been proven. Then the article has some very interesting relation between things like dreams, Quantum Entanglement, and consciousness. So for a moment imagine that it is in fact possible. How are the two seperate dreamer's brains interacting with each other? It is a truley mind blowing possibility.

If you are a open-minded brainy guy like me I highly suggest reading this.

That's interesting. I'm not doubting it, but I don't think I'd be able to pull something like that off. A lot of people talk about Lucid Dreaming, and I tried it once, and it was really weird. People always talked about it so good, and I was researching ways on how to lucid dream and started trying to do it. Then one afternoon, I was tired and started to fall asleep, but before I feel asleep I wanted to try it, and I actually started to. But I purposely woke myself up because going into the dream, it felt really weird and I didn't like it. That was the only time I ever did it. So because of that, I think what you're talking about here is too much for me to make a successful attempt at.

I'm still open to lucid dreaming though, I don't want to shun the idea of it, it just made my body and mind feel really weird that first time.

Well, I can't take anything from that site without some actual evidence

It's an interesting idea... but I think that if you WANT to think you did, then you can fill things in and interpolate/extrapolate form what the other person says fairly easily (not to mention that people think similarly enough to have similar expectations in a predefined dream, I guess)

I believe in it being possible. Because, I have experienced it by an accident. Many years ago I shared dream with my cousin. I remember when we talked about it in the morning. We were both very amazed and excited. Of the dream itself I only remember a few frames from here and there.

It may be possible but I'm skeptical. Given a similar set of interests and beliefs, it may be natural to have convergent dreams with very similar subject matter but its still an intriguing concept worth studying further. Experiments involving strangers and not close friends need to be conducted.

I haven't attempted lucid dreaming or read about how to do it but I have heard some mentions of it from others. Its definitely something I would be interested in attempting someday. The other facts the article listed about dreaming are intersting also. For a long time, I never remembered my dreams. I would just recognize that I was asleep for a few minutes before I woke up and would not have any recollection of dreaming at all. I sleep very soundly and from what others have told me, I am very hard to wake up. I guess I am a highly passive dreamer.

Goes for anything really... but if you believed even a quarter of what that site said, you'd be wearing a tinfoil hat and hiding under the bed.

/me needs another roll of tin foil.

As soon as I read the first few sentences I was thinking quantum entanglement. I mean, why not? We know what parts of the brain do in general, but nothing specific. Quantum entanglement happens when two quanta are forced into the same state. Why couldn't 2 people thinking the same thing force their brains into quantum entanglement on some level?

Blatantly false. He's a parking warden in every city in the world simultaneously.
