In the movie Inception people placed themselves in a drug induced sleep state so that they could not only dream, but in their dream state enter into the dreams of others. In doing so they carried out specific complex plans including entering dreams in multiple levels. The purpose of their actions was to place a thought or a seed of a thought to into a persons mind to change their future behaviour for a specific purpose. It is obvious that the Inception movie is far fetched. I have had discussions with friends that planning and caring out such complex pre-planned actions in a dream state is impossible. I am a dreamer. I usually have very lucid dreams. Sometimes they are nothing special, sometimes sexual, sometimes very bizarre and sometimes very scary (often life threatening situations). As expected my favourite type is sexual:biggrin1: but I really hate it when it ends too soon or I wake up before I am ready. However, I also like dreams when I am flying or floating. I find that even when I awake from such a dream that I feel fulfilled as if I had a major spiritual experience. Often when I have bad dreams I realize that I am in a dream and try to control it or change it or wake up. For example, one time I dreamed that our cat had bitten an electrical cord and was being electrocuted. In my dream I grabbed the cats tail as was also being electrocuted. I couldnt let go. I realized that I was dreaming but couldnt wake up. In my dream, I knew my only way out of the situation was to somehow get my wife to wake me. I tried to move to shake her but couldnt. I began to breathe hard, that is all I could do. I was hoping that would get her attention but no luck. Finally, I awoke and felt somewhat traumatized. The next morning I talked to my wife about it. She said that I did manage to wake her and she did notice I was breathing hard but thought I was having a wet dream. She wanted me to enjoy it and thus did nothing. My point is that I do dream a lot and often have reason to try and change/control my dreams but have very limited success. I have a friend that says he can control his dreams. What are your dream experiences like? Can you control them? Does anyone have any specific experiences they would like to share?
