Do you think in your dreams?

Interesting, in most of my dreams I actually think, but so much things happen in dreams that I often miss to RC :meh:

Some times the thinking has given me an LD :woo: however, when Im in LD I tend to rather act than think what I want to do :cry:

I’ve always had trouble thinking for some reason, I could never articulate a simple sentence in my mind and keep it organized that way… I don’t know way my thought process has always been more visual than anything else.

So often times it plays out the same way inside of my dreams.

If I do think, I’m sure its like what Rhewin said, and I only remember the action.
I think that even in RL, I mostly only remember actions (unless I really go off thinking about a lot of stuff). However, it might be that I simply have not improved my DR enough to remember if I do think.
I hope I do, as I don’t think an LD would be the same if I didn’t think like I do in RL.

Thinking?? I never think, in or out of dreams!! :gni: On a more serious note, I do seem to think in my dreams, just not logically.

I do think in my dreams, but I my thinking isn’t even close to logical. In non-lucid dreams, I accept everything I see as true. Heck, if a 5 headed giraffe walked by me in a dream, I wouldn’t find it the slightest bit odd.

I can think in my ND (have´nt had too many LD.s). Do it in all of my dreams, cind of obvious for me :tongue:
One time i was rideing my bike and i where right behind a couple of hot chicks and i thoght “dam that´s one fine looking chick!” :content:

Come of think of it, my dreams are action-packed, unlike my waking life with is thought-packed. I tend to think a lot on waking, but very little in my dreams. I talk, yes, but I don’t find the need to think. Strange, eh?

No, that’s my case too.

When I think about thinking in dreams…I don’t think I think.Actually, I think I don’t think.Until this point, I didn’t think about the fact that I don’t think in my dreams.

OK, enough with the confusing part.
I just…play along with the dream.Just like some kind of a sequence, without any thinking.

LDs are different tho…because I’m aware of the fact that I’m dreaming.

Yes, I do.
I remember talking with myself in recent dreams, loud in my head :razz:.

I remember myself thinking in some of my regular dreams. One time I had a dream that I died and turned into a ghost. My only thoughts were “Haha, I’m going to scare so many people.” Those thoughts are kind of stupid, thinking of them now. I could of done so much more… Er…

But yeah… The only time I actually respect my dream thoughts is when they are from lucid dreams- when I actually can make sense of why I thought what I did.

Oh cool, first post.

I had a dream last night where I had a thought (I wasn’t intentionally thinking per say) and the mental image of this thought seemed to superimpose over the dream scene, like if you had a drawing, then put a piece of clear paper (overhead sheet) with a different drawing on top.

The question I was wondering, was (after the dream), what would have happened if I asked another character in the dream if they could see it?

Usually i don’t think in dreams at all…untill i saw this post, then the last two nights i found myself questioning things and having memorable thoughts, so thanks,(btw i was never lucid in those dreams though :cry: )

Yes I do.

However I believe everything I see.

But I’m getting better. I’ve started to think of dreaming as a possible reason to the bizarre.

Mew, did you mean possible reason to question the bizarre? I was thinking that maybe you meant dreams are life’s reason to the bizarre like a complement (like you’re the fork to my knife or something, i don’t know :user: (i was gonna find a funny face, but i decided that this emoticon is like me, just lolligagging, typing into a computer speaking (mostly) nonsense), but dreams are generally bizarre, so i didn’t think it held. either way, i’m interested in what you were trying to say. :happy:

I seem to think… Accepting everything I… See…
Well, some nights back I had a LD when I was questioning
something. If you are intrested to read, go to the link in the sig,
the dream is Failed Flying.
So yes. I probably can think.

Ive often wondored this myself. I think that our thoughts are tranformed into our actions in dreams which is probley why its hard to become lucid.

define thinking…

I think all the time in dreams, just as I do in real life. The more logical my thoughts become, the closer I am to lucidity. It allows me to judge how close to lucidity I got.

For instance, last night I had a dream in which I drank a bottle of vodka, went to a tattoo parlor, and woke up on the carpet with LOVE tattooed all the way down my back. My dream body sat for a while freaking out about this, and I started thinking, rather logically, about the repercussions of this giant tattoo - I’d have to be extra careful about the shirts I wear to hide it, especially at work; tattoo removal might be an option, though it sounds painful, etc. If I had thought a bit harder and realized how ridiculously out of character the whole experience was, I might have realized I was dreaming.

When I’m lucid I really start questioning and experimenting, my thoughts growing more complex. Does anyone else have this correlation?

I can’t. Some think in words, some in pictures, some in sounds, some in simple concepts.
Every person has his way of thinking, and personal idea of what thinking is, but whatever it is for people, in all cases it represents a more conscious activity of the mind. And that’s what I was interested in, seeing if there’s conscious activity behind the subconscious dreaming, particularly the non-lucid district.

in many of my dreams I think just like I do in real life…for example, last night I had a dream that I got engaged and I remember looking at the ring (which was made out of pink clay… lol) and thinking “well, it’s not a traditional kind of ring, but i like it because it’s out-of-the-box” hahah
