I see my […]

5 Nov

My thoughts after seeing Waking Life: “Holy shit – this movie really is all about lucid dreaming!” “What the fuck was that guy talking about?” “This is really awesome and yet sometimes really boring.” “This guy talking about how turning on or off a light in a dream and how it won’t work – I […]

Making that time for Dreaming Life between an increasingly demanding job, my role as a husband, and just dealing with my life is partly to blame, but it goes deeper than this.

i want to be the absence of things. by Pixie Cosmina, on Flickr

    I’m in bed, lying on my side. I can see myself in the mirror, but I cannot move. My body feels like absolute dead weight. I struggle to move at all. I move my hands and arms around; I can feel it happening, but am puzzled because they are completely invisible, 100%. I […]

Can anyone confirm that there are male/female Calea Z plants, only one of which is good for lucid dreaming?

Northernstar recently left the following comment on Calea Zacatechichi: Smoking, Drinking, and Encapsulating the Dream Herb: “There is something you are missing – just like Cannibas Sativa, Calea Z has a potent dark green female and a non-potent light green male.
