Default Ever have that dream where you shut off your alarm?

But you also do it in real life, and wake up hours after you're supposed to?

yes, and apparently I can have a small conversation in a dream and still go back to sleep, all after I shut the alarm clock off in my sleep.

Yes, I have had that dream.

I have also dreams, that I turned off the clock, got up like I was supposed to and started my day.

the worst of it is when I have dreams where I wake up and go through my entire week, then wake up severely disoriented for a few moments.

the key is to get a loud ass alarm and put it on the other side of the room, unless you sleepwalk, then you are double ****ed.

Research has shown that dream time is roughly equal to real time. Meaning its highly unlikely you got through a week worth of activity in one dream. I could be pulling this out of my ass though.

you just gotta train yourself.


The seco9nd I hear my alarm i am up and its off, I NEVER get back to bed anymore. and I never have problems missing important stuff.


try it. dont train yourself to ignore the alarm because you know you're just going to hit snooze or go back to bed

I had a dream that lasted what I thought was several hours....on a 15 minute break at work.

One of the most vivid dreams I have ever had.

In fact, when I woke up, I thought I was WAY late getting back to work, but looked down at my watch and noticed I had a couple minutes left.

my alarm clock has a beep and a back up CD. so i set the alarm to beep which gets progressivly louder and when that has gone through all the snoozes it sets off the CD programmed to the song of my choice which is usually a loud slipknot type song ...

funny, I've heard that your dreams do not last the entire night, that they only take a few seconds once you reach REM, and that they only feel like they last the entire night because it repeats over and over till you wake up.


to me that makes sense cause when you think about it, your brain is the fastest and most sophisticated CPU in (known) existence. and if they can have war machines that run battle scenarios endlessly over and over, then the brain must be capable of the same thing.

of course, both could be true. some dreams might be in real time, and some might be in distorted time. and if that is true, then maybe the dream is more likely to happen in real time when you have some form of external stimuli to "anchor" you, such as a radio playing or people with electrodes poking and prodding you.

Dreams tend to last for the entire REM cycle ranging from about ten to twenty-five minutes. Dreams usually occur during these regular sleep cycles, but they may also occur at other times, such as when one falls asleep or begins to awaken

Ever dream you have hair on your tongue?

Well me neither.

But I do dream about trains a lot. Going somewhere in some new city and trying to get the right ticket and then getting on the right train. It usually works out in my dream.
