Dream Reaction
    #4730050 - 09/29/05 07:52 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Here's a question for you.

If I say that in (non-lucid) dreams your reaction to a certain situation varies depending on who you are, what would you say is the particular criteria that is the determining factor to these different reactions?

For example, some people, at the sight of a lion in their dream, get scared and run as hell, while others approach it and even confront it if it starts to get threatening.

Or an example from a fellow shroomerite, JacquesCousteau. He said in the Dream thread that in his dreams he is "automatically fearful" and the act of running away is something (reoccurent), whereas in real life he is not like that at all:


I consider myself to be a fairly aware person during my waking hours.. but in my dreams, I find myself robotic.. egoic.. like I'm just flailing, trying to get away from whatever it is that I seem to need to get away from at the time.

In real life, faced with an uneasy situation, I tend to sit and think on it, and try to come to a logical conclusion. In my dreams, I just react. I run.. I escape.. I just get away. Like a robot, I have no thought.. I just react.

Another example, personal this time. Last night I dreamed I was naked and swimming in some dirty ass swamp, getting all the tennis balls out of it (lol), but, even as I was wondering if I wasn't going to step on fish carrions, I wasn't disturbed, even though I knew it was a dirty thing to do.
Now this isn't a normal reaction of mine! In real life I probably would've thrown up! well maybe not but you get what i mean..

So what is it that determines in which manner we react in our dreams, if it isn't the same thing that detemines in which way we react in real life?

Dreaming is the concept of concepts.
