I've been on a medication which pretty much blocks a receptor in my brain which is associated with hallucinating for a different reason.
However, during sleep, i get really vivid dreams and have learned quite alot about their nature and have few theories about their meaning.
But note these two possibilities:
- The dreams are a direct effect/product of the drug (completely different state from REM) /or/ the drug enhances ability to remeber and 'experience' the dream (REM on steroids)
Im making all of these analysis based on the assumption (second one) that this medication is just like adderall for studying physics whereby - it helps you learn and memorise more efficiently of the physics content (the dream). NOT the drug giving me a chemistry textbook (fully swapping the 'dream' state w/ another state induced by drug)
- Dreams are a visual sequence of the subconscious mind traveling a randomized line of thought. Confusing? Well here's an exaple-
lets say your new friend looks like your fav musician- in your dream you are walking at school like you always do and when you look at his face you suddenly are at their gigs.
NATURE OF YOUR PRECEPTION IN A DREAM - in a dream, you perceive that nothing is weird and next time you make that connection, you may trigger memory from the dream (being at their concert)
I remeber seeing a dildo meme after skateboarding, and in my dream, my friend was skating a dildo- didnt find it weird in the drem (if i did i would've woken up), where the memory was triggered when i saw the meme again the next day
NATURE OF YOUR PRESENCE - it actually feels no different to reality- its about as real as past memories e.g. how shit some food tasted in dream is as real as real life
- The dream is an abstract layout of your future. Not simply metaphors but questioning this-
Did the dream come first or the reality?
Feel free to ask some stuff - i have pre crazy dream stories lel
