My version of that is being surrounded by swirling numbers, which progress, counting, in a weird looping fashion always coming back to the same thing through the same patterns. When it gets near 0, it's about the most frightening thing imaginable (I never said it made sense).

I've been told that dreams like that are related to a type of sleep disorder, where the mind awakes, but the body is still in the state of being shut down so you can't act out your dreams. This is often accompanied by hallucinations. Being frightened or having your heart "skip a beat" is often associated with it, too.

Yeah I have... or used too at least, be able to give myself the feeling of falling, but in a relaxing way...

lets make this a general discussion about dreams!
Right now im attempting to get more lucid dreams, so far my attempts have only given me vauge rememberance of having actualy dreamt something (where-as before I used to hardly /ever/ remember even dreaming at all). Its funny that you actualy dream every single night but you can /compleltly/ forget about it in the morning and think that you never dreamt at all, but in fact you had. Weird stuff, sometimes you experiance the half-way inbetween thing where you have a dream in your mind, then forget about it for a minute, then it comes back to you, its almost scary to think you can forget something so completly so easily like that.

All im doing right now to try to get lucid dreams is just some random tips from random websites... mostly im just lying in bed looking at the darkness of my closed eyelids untill I start seeing vauge day-dreaming-like-stuff or vauge random patterns of light (close your eyelids and press against them with your finger for a while... that sort of thing, but more vauge, I dont get any really vivid image (or sound) in this state, some people supposidly do).

Actualy Daxx... I guess its even trying to get into that state of mind awake and body asleep, but in some sort of different way I guess

Suposidly in this state you have to keep yourself consious and logical (some website suggested you visualise driving a car and concentrating on all the logical workings of how you need to operate it to keep you from drifting off in random thoughts/ideas, keeping your logic side on and your imagination at bay basicly, as you fall asleep, so that you can have more logical control while in your dream.... something like that anyways)

Dreams are so weird and interesting...

I frequently have dreams about driving in a car with brakes that don't work well/at all. It is perhaps the most frequent recurring theme in my dreams. I'd probably think I were going to get in a crazy car accident if I bought into that sort of thing (and if I drove more than a couple times as week).

I can still remember some of my dreams from ages back.

Here are some that I can still remember;

In one, I had to infiltrate this building with robots in it (I think) and I went in and had to drop a melon into a bin that was 2 storeys below. I missed and the guy carrying the bin started chasing me. At that point I found out I had super speed so a ran really fast away. I kind of forgot the next bit. Then a bit later when I can remember it again, I wasn't the super sprint guy, I was another person chasing him. And then a somehow found out that the running was caused by beans.

I had this one when I was about 6 and it was recurring. I was at this beach were I used to go when I was that young, and I could fly. I just focused and I lifted of the ground. One of the most memorable pictures was me fly around but the thing that I was seeing out of was looking at me from afar. That might sound confusing but it is the easiest way to describe it.

Some times when I am lying in bed and almost sleep, then I dream of walking and then step into a hole and fall. Then I wake up and sit up in bed.

I never liked dreaming, I almost always had nightmares when I was kid. Even today it is still kind of annoying that I am a little nervous about sleeping because of it.

A recent dream of mine ended quite spectacularly. I can't really remember what the dream was about, but it got to the point were a truck was ready to explode. The truck stood in a street between to large and high buildings, brick apartments, kind of the older parts of NY. Since it was a dream, I stupidly threw something at the truck that I knew would make it go off.

I never saw the explosion in the dream since I away ran from it, but I remember running along the side of this building with debris filling the sky, cars and large chunks of building raining around me. I stopped to watch, looked up. It was quite amazing. When I woke up I distinctly remembered every detail of the last part of the dream. Very cool.

One dream-related event I'll never forget happened a year ago. I took an afternoon nap and somehow, I opened my eyes, while I was still asleep! So basically, I dreamed about my room which I saw. I tried to move around, but I only moved in the dream, so it was like being paralyzed. I remember feeling irritated at not being able to move in the dream. When I woke up I remembered it all and I felt very  confused and freaked out.

Have you tried when you're like 5 seconds away from falling asleep, then you suddenly get a "shock" through your body, and wake up? God I hate when that happens.

The most scary dream I've had (That I can remember) was one where I was walking in an old village, and then suddenly an army of hungry zombies come running after me, and the village changes into a burning city. I don't know why, but there's something with me and zombies...

Yeah, I think that happens to me because that is when all my muscles relax and I think I am falling...

on the falling note, that happens quite a bit when I'm on the verge of sleep and I trip and my body tenses up and a wake slightly.  Not a ton of fun.  Cool thing though, I had to keep a dream journal for a mythology class and the more I kept it, the more I remembered from every dream.  I've heard this is quite common but I was wondering what other people's experiences with dream journals were like. -leeman

I wish I had normal nightmares about zombies and exploding, my dreams were always really surreal and strange.

Yah, um, sorry about that. I don't know what the gang and I were thinking... and we didn't mean o set the village on fire, but that damn Ralph is a pyro or something! i swear to God his brain was already cooked when Ted opened his skull! So, um, we'll stop having raves in your head. Sorry about the trouble :D

So, anyways, i used to always have this odd sensation that I was floating above my bed when I was sleeping, and then I instantly snapped awake and I swear to God I actually fell onto my bed when I woke up. Needless to say, I was creeped out.

Ok so here we shall talk about dreams share dreams comment on other peoples dreams and anything eles that has to do with subconsisness.

Ok so heres my dream that I had this morning.

Well I think I was in a MMORPG fought a few people then I guse i went into a rest stop.
Then in the rest stop it was 3-D (first part was 2-D top down view.)I sat down then a girl said that my hand was in something I looked and there was noting, but I move my hand just to be safe.  Then the girl burt out laughing ( why do they do that ) and I attacked her with a ball of light and she deflected it apperently. I then thought of some thing that would utterly humiliate her. I then attempeted to turn her into a guy. It worked and well it was amuseing not a big laugh as I thought then I guse that some how seperated my soul from my body. Then I got a message saying "to posses you must press all 4 smash buttons" and another one stating that the faster I did that then my oppent was the level that I would posses ie no control half control full control death. Then the formal girl killed my body with a scepter and I found my self at the 'chose your class' area I chose shadow (witch I think had a description like 'Even in the darkest of times a simple shade can produce some light'.) Then I woke up.

Here is what the girl I turned into a guy looked like...ish
