I wondered, (and this probably already have been asked) if you can be a ghost in a dream and then “walk” into other peoples dreams. Also, can you take “control” of bodies while being a ghost? Finally, is there a way to turn pain “on.” I was stabbed awhile ago in a dream and the pain was very dull. If this has already been answered remove this and send the the link(s) to me in a message.

1-What you’re talking about is shared dreams, and you don’t really have to be a ghost to do that… O_O. But we don’t have any proofs if shared dreams are real or not. Go to the sub-forum called ‘‘Beyond dreaming’’ in the forum index to learn more about it.
2-Pain comes with the vivdness of the dream, but a lot of people don’t feel it. Oh and trust me, pain isn’t fun, same thing as reality.
I think it would be easier to be a ghost and then go in to your “guy you hate” dreams and then give them horrifying nightmares that will haunt me for the rest of my life.
And I wondered what pain would feel like, really. Surely the bullet to the tummy is bad in real life? Anyways, I just think that normal pain in dreams would make a war zone interesting. (Or very fatal, that it makes me emo, that makes me want to get shot every time.)
Sure, you can be a ghost, and sure you can take control of bodies. It is a dream and as such you are limited only by your own imagination. Pain being dull can be a result of two things most likely, one is that you just didn’t know/think the experience was supposed to be that painful and the other is that your recall was mediocre so you don’t really remember the pain as vividly as it happened.
As far as walking into other people’s dreams that would be called a shared dream. Many people claim to have experienced them but their is obviously no empirical evidence yet as this would indicate some sort of physic link or shared awareness between human beings. Needless to say it would be a monumental discovery.
Got a relevant dream just tonight; was working with dangerous plants… they had spikes all over them and they started eating people, don’t ask. But when I touched them (even with gloves on) I could defenitely feel a sting. Not the pain you would feel IRL but a clear biting sting.
So I guess pain is on or off in a dream depending on the dream… 'cause I have been shot before in a dream and didn’t feel a thing.
