as a practicing occultist i have developed my ability to lucid dream. the fascinating thing is that i think that a majority of my typist's dreams these days are of me and my friends here in SL. in some way, i think we are more real.


I've had a few SL dreams. Always makes me feel weird, haha.

Wol Euler

My dreams thoroughly interweave SL and RL, I can be my RL self in a SL location or vice versa. Dreaming in an other-gendered body (i.e. as one of my alts) was pretty freaky the first time it happened, but it occurs regularly now. I dream of being Wol, in her body, nearly as often as of being myself in my RL body.

I had a lucid Second Life dream the other night. Unfortunately, I crashed when i tried to teleport. :)

Adeon Writer

Well I certainly didn't expect to get asked this question!

I'm actually shocked that it's more than just me, though. But to answer the question specifically, no, because I've never been able to have what other people consider to be a lucid dream. (At least, the professionals say my dreams weren't lucid.)

Ignatius Onomatopoeia

Lucid? Just the flying bit...I fixed a loose slate on our roof.

I even made that "whoosh" sound you get in SL. So no "brave new world" moment, just the sort of lazy-bones thing I'd do if I could fly, so I wouldn't have to go get a ladder.


I try to control my dreams or nightmares rather, but it's always the same. First, I feel like I am being bogged down to a crawl by massive mind control, turns out it's lag. Then I feel crowded and almost wake up from a cold sweat but I realize it's just bots and campers, so I go back to sleep and dream of days with working TP, no lag, and better graphics. I sleep until these things become a reality in 2015.
