Ever have them crazy dreams? This afternoon I went home and ate some salsa con cheese and took a nap after work.(an american nap, yes there is a difference). Now I dont know if it was the cheese or what but I had this dream of "romantic nature" and at the end the girl turned into a bag of salad! I dont know if its because I recently moved to Lawton Oklahoma. (Its not that bad) or eating cheese before nap time.

LiveScience is reporting that playing video games before bed can help gamers control their dreams. This can be helpful for those who have troublesome dreams. "If you're spending hours a day in a virtual reality, if nothing else it's practice," said Jayne Gackenbach, a psychologist at Grant MacEwan University in Canada. "Gamers are used to controlling their game environments, so that can translate into dreams." I can personally attest to the fact that playing a ton of Tetris will affect your dreams. You'll be seeing those blocks fall down, endlessly clearing lines. After playing the heck out of Resident Evil 4 I had dreams of fighting back zombies for months. Far from a nightmare, I always found it to be a fun challenge. Does anyone else have any experiences with video games and dreams? Video Gamers Can Control Dreams, Study Suggests via Slashdot

Who would be in your dream build team? You have an idea, a plan. Now you just need to build it, perfect it, sale it. You can't do all of it so you need a team not a large team, but a good, no, brillant team. What people types would you need? You're the Planner/Mastermind, now name the other types you would need.

Hey Instructables, We are a group of college students working an open source project that we believe is pretty cool. As we are not as experienced as many of the people here on this board we thought we would make a small post that could help us recruit a few people who are interested to chip in knowledge! Currently we are working on an open source accurate lucid dreaming project. What we are doing is trying to take the information from a Zeo Mobile Monitor and use it to accurately tell when a person goes into REM sleep and then initiate a sequence of LEDs that should create visual anomalies in dreams. Now, yes there are projects that work with leds and sounds to try and induce lucid dreaming, but none of them can accurately tell when a user is in REM sleep, which is the stage that people usually dream in. We believe that the Zeo is the most accurate (available) method to tell if a person is in REM. So we created a project to make this a reality. We had an old domain name so we went ahead and started it up. If anyone is interest in the project please visit our site thisistrash.com and click on the Lucid Dreaming to read about our progress. Also comment on here or on the website because trust me, we can use all the help possible. Or Pm me emails me etc Also this project is not for a class or money. It's just a fun project that we decided to do on the side to help us learn some more engineering.

Let's say that you have an idea for making a videogame. You are good with 3D software, designing, game flow, you are creative, and you are a programming GOD. What woud you dream game be? Would it be a simple arcade or a puzzle game? Or would it be a complex RPG or action game? Would it have a story? Are you even working on it now? Do you have artwork or ideas you wish to share? Remember-it is your dream game. It's whatever you want it to be.

I have just learned that people believe that eating cheese before bed will give you nightmares. I have also just learned that scientists have proven this not true. In fact, earing cheese before bed will improve your sleep and depending on the type of cheese that you have eaten, will depend on the types of dreams that you have. Now, I wonder how all that Cheez Whiz that Tetranitrate has been eating is affecting his sleep. You can't make this stuff up.

I know freecycle has been mentioned here before, but I thought I'd share just how good a resource it can be for people wanting either a) projects b) cool stuff that they don't mind fixing up a little This is a picture of most of the stuff I've acquired from freecycle in the last few months. Most of it was for fodder for electronics-ish projects, but there were a few things of genuine utility that it just turned out no-one else wanted. Sometimes I find it hard to believe the amount of stuff you can get from freecycle- someone could probably set up a shop dedicated to just reselling reconditioned stuff. It would be like Steptoe and son (US readers: Sandford and son) but with more slightly-out-of-date-but-perfectly-serviceable computers.

My friends and I are attempting to lucid dream. I don't wanna die and I'm sure my friends don't wanna die and I've heard mixed things. So is it Myth or Fact? UPDATE: Thanks for all the answers guys! I just realized how dumb of a question it was after reading a post that said Even if someone died in a dream and actually died they wouldn't live to tell the tale. Again thanks for the answers!

Wow! I've been experiencing a chain of weird, almost scary dreams lately involving instructables...... It was a normal Sunday afternoon, I go to I'bles, and I read my comment tracker. I can actually read the comments I will get later on in the real world. I kept having these dreams for about a week. Meh, Strange stuff..... Do you have weird dreams of your own? if so, post it here! UPDATE!!!! Another very weird dream! It was a normal afternoon. I read comics. Then, suddenly, strangers started saying gibberish. This was repeated for about 6 times, then I wake up. The first thing I realized is now my penis is " modded " by my parents... I screamed because of the intense pain......

Question by ahmad2117 | last reply
.Hi there.For those of you who don't know what's "Lucid dreaming", it's the ability to take the control of a dream by becoming fully aware in it, and to "visit" this alternate reality. (Note : GuyFrom7up made a instructable about an experimental lucid dream machine here )In most of our dreams, we're simple spectators. In fantasy, our imagination has to do all the work.In "lucid dreaming", the "dream world" is not generated by the same aware part of the brain that manages "imagination". The "dream world" is created "somewhere else" in our subconscious. So, becoming aware into this "dream world" is like an immersion into a video-game, or a virtual reality ...It is said that our awareness has the ability to change the content of this "virtual reality", that we are able to "create" objects just by imagining them, and that we can touch and manipulate them like if they were real, etc ...(it would be possible to write books or compose complete symphonies there for instance)I've just experienced my first lucid dream this morning.It was not a frightening experience at all. Thanks to it, I learned a lot about myself.When you're starting to sleep, a lot of random pictures and scenes appears in your mind. Most of them don't make sense at all ... Most of the time, when your brain tries to understand them as they appear, this interrupt them and you wake-up.When they come back, if your brain is too tired to analyse them, then, they "catch you" and you fall asleep.If you manage to "watch" them without interrupting them, your awareness will "follow" them, and you'll become aware into them.During my experience, I noticed something very interesting : My "awareness" was kind of separated in two parts : - there was my bad side who was controlling my "dream body" and acted like an evil entity who had just escaped from hell ................- and there was my wise side who was silently witnessing my other-side doing "evil things" ...(both were into the same dream body though. They were just thinking independently, like if they were no more mixed together, like if they were both "pure" ...)And at one moment, my wise side said : «Come on , look at what you're doing ...»And then, I had the choice to continue, or to wake up. And I woke up.Then, the question I asked to myself was : « who is aware ? »(or in other words : did I noticed, thanks to this experience, that my awareness of the everyday life is, in fact, a composite of two "struggling forces" of opposite nature, mixed together and acting like one in a same body, and separating from each others during the sleep ?)Also, this first experience was very unstable :- it was difficult to remain into this "dream world", because the awareness tends to use physical senses (physical eyes, physical ears, etc) instead of the "dream senses", and the dream tends to fade ...- also, I noticed that the dream was not clear and bright, probably because my "physical sight" and my "dream sight" were mixed together (there was some light into my bedroom that was filtering through my eyelids)That was a very interesting experience. I will try again, with the hope that my "evil side" will calm down a little and will let my wise side explore that inner universe in more serious way ............. =o)

Well, I've seen quite the lot of dreams being posted, and it just so happened I had one last night:Starting from when I can remember:Me and two of my friends got selected to fly into space to investigate mysterious disappearances of items from the Space Station..So we go through training, and tests, and finally comes the date of liftoff(I can't recall much though here)while were are in the space station, I notice something...this isn't the space station NASA sent us to, Its an exact replica of the parking lot at Macy's in my town...I look around..and my one friend (cody) says "Hey man, thats your car isn't it?""Wait a sec.. IT IS!"I walk up to the car, and reach into my pocket...my keys are chiming off each other as my hand shakes..I unlock the door, and sit inside..checking the sun visor, and to my astonishment, there is a picture of my crush (whom I wont mention)the picture is folded and faded..I get out of the car, and look around..I'm back in Cape Canaveral!in the parking lot of NASA...as I walk with my two friends in the doors, I am greeted by Eric Schmidt (CEO of Google)((which I never knew till i searched for it today after my dream))he says "It'll be great having you with us in our mysterious hunt for the missing items in the Space Station."My friend (cody) says "Wait a second, I forgot my travelers guitar" (in the trunk of his car)so we go to get his guitar and as he's pulling it out, I notice something in his car..A GUN!"Why do you have a gun in your car cody?"as I finished saying that, these two men ride up on a moped and demand (in broken English):"Best not make any sudden movements"as the two guys talk amongst themselves, I whisper to cody"Psst, grab your guitar, and get down"He grabs the guitar, and ducks down as I reach for the gun, which ends up to be a .22-250, and shoot the one guy in the leg, he falls, the other guy pulls from his pants a handgun, he fires three shots, and I fire two, they all miss,I load my second to last shell, and take aim...POWthrough the chin, into the throat, and out his neck my shot traveledhe lays motionless on the ground as his partner, hobbles on to his moped and rides away..I gather myself, and get my friend, as we walk by the entrance to the building I see these two gentlemen playing a tune, my friend sits down, and strums along..they were playing Boom Boom by John Lee Hooker...which incidentally was the song I awoke too this morning....prolly the weirdest, most vivid dream I have ever had...Sorry about the plethora of misspellings, non-capitalization and spotty punctuation.. its late, and I need sleep..

I just realized that I had a dream this morning in the same location... twice. By that, I mean (in a gaming sort of fashion) you started playing a game, then halfway through, your mom called you and you had to save your progress. You then resume to your most recent progress in the game and continue playing. It felt something like that, and I can't explain how that happened (also given that I had the first one weeks ago). Out of curiosity, has anyone else experienced such a thing? And if so, what are they called (if at all)? ***It's been a while since I've done anything in Instructables lately.

I can remember reading DIY books as a child and feeling empowered to build. Plans and dreams suddenly seemed within my reach. Ultimate forts, robots, go-karts, chemistry experiments of rotten-egg gas... Online searching is replacing the hunt for hard bound how-to's. However, I still love finding instructions in used books or old library stacks. A lab partner in college found an old schematic of a vacuum-tube amplifier at a flea market. The clarity of that diagram convinced us to make the amp for his guitar. Along those lines, I see some books have been mentioned in other forum postings The American Boy's Handy Book The Forgotten Crafts Gizmos Haywired: Pointless (Yet Awesome) Projects for the Electronically Inclined Play With Your Food Two books I have found to be inspiring are The Art of Electronics by Horowitz & Hill and Stalking the Wild Asparagus by Euell Gibbons. Art of Electronics pulled me out of "the bush league". As for Stalking, I had never before read a cook book which paid so much attention to the preparation of the ingredients, as wild dishes require. Classics. Care to share what set you free / inspired your creativity?

Here's an idea I had but realistically won't have time to work on. Okay, so there are these things called kit cars that have been around for years. Basic idea being, you put a cooler looking body on your regular everyday car. Neat idea but even the cheap ones start about 3 grand! That's a lot of money for a raw chunk of fiberglass to add to car not worth half that. Also there are other disappointments like: good luck getting the exact design you want that just happens to fit your make/model. Now in seemingly unrelated news these cosplay people have figured out how to (ab)use some software called pepakura to print out life-sized paper models of swords and armor and stuff. Then to make them useable they fiberglass them, bondo and paint... HEY! WAIT A MINUTE! That's all car autobody stuff! You see where I'm going with this. Thus, therefore, and in conclusion my suggestion is that you do the following: 1) Watch "The Hero Tutorials" on youtube. Pretty much the definitive guide for the paper cosplay thing. 2) Print out a lifesize copy of the batmobile or whatever and tape it to your car. 3) Do the autobody thing for tedious weeks on end. 4) Post an instructable in a contest I'm entered in and swipe the prize right from under my nose. 5) I feel sad at having become the instrument of my own undoing... yet console myself over the fact that the net awesomeness of the universe has increased significantly.
