The Search for Meaning

26 Jun

Ever since I started Dreaming Life, I was hesitant to share it with my family and friends. Why? Well… It’s not like I’m writing about the latest mp3 players or posting gag videos. I’m writing about Salvia Divinorum, DMT, DXM, Ayahausca, and Calea Z. I’m interviewing people on entheogens and asking people about their shamanic […]

Bi-Weekly Dream Reports: That Mischievous Dreaming Mind & A Short Lucid Dream

14 Jun

I decided to bring the Bi-Weekly Dream Reports back. They generate more comments than many of my other posts, leading me to believe that it’s something people can relate to. Is this true – do you enjoy this aspect of the blog? Should I keep doing it? The discussion this time centers around what a […]

Part I: A Psychonaut’s Guide to the Invisible Landscape: Joining the Hive Mind, Seeing Your Dreams, Crushing the Ego and… Meeting the Dead?

14 Jun

In A Psychonaut’s Guide to the Invisible Landscape: The Topography of the Psychedelic Experience, author Dan Carpenter makes many startling claims based on his experiences with the dissociative psychedelic DXM. (Yep, dextromethorphan – the stuff of cough syrup!) He’s not simply having a subjective journey inside his mind; DXM actually takes him to an objective […]

A Psychonaut’s Guide to the Invisible Landscape

  All the questions brought up in this book answer to a bigger question, perhaps the biggest question of all: Can we trust our own subjective experiences? This innocent-sounding question is one of enormous implication. At times when I read his words I thought to myself that if I accept what he says, than by […]

Part III: A Psychonaut’s Guide to the Invisible Landscape: Parting Words, Parting Sorrows

A Psychonaut’s Guide to the Invisible Landscape

  The book is at its best when, instead of merely being a log of his trips, the author expounds on their philosophical and spiritual implications. In other words, What does it all mean? While he does get into this a bit, occasionally using quantum physics to help makes sense of the experience, unfortunately this […]

What Does Dream Food Taste Like?

What Does Dream Food Taste Like?

  What is it like to eat “dream food” in a lucid dream? What does dream food taste like? Does it taste better or worse? Would it alleviate any cravings you have for certain foods like chocolate or candy? Here’s a really over-the-top question: Could you go on a dream diet to eat foods you […]

Dreaming about Stephen LaBerge: How Ironic!

5 Jun

It always cracks me up when I have dreams where the subject of Lucid Dreaming is staring at me in the face and yet it never occurs to me to question my reality and see if I am indeed in the middle of a dream. This happened a few nights ago when I dreamt of […]
