# What's the longest lucid dream you ever had?

wow that was one of the most amazing dreams Ive ever read id die to have such complex dreams as that

You dont have to die in order to have those, just to believe in yourself, its much easier =D

Sorta, except he explains that the idea of the 100 year dream was an illusion based on the way we “skip” in dreams and assume the time has passed. In other words if you just counted seconds it is super unlikely that you would even get to 7200, and utterly impossible you would get to a number like 36000.

I really find it hard to believe, the 100 years thing
how intense is that ?!!

I guess my point got lost on the previous page…anyway:

Anyway, a 100 year long dream is really quite astounding.
After all, as Einstein said, time is nothing but an illusion.

What I’m trying to get at here is that LaBerge did an extensive series of experiments with many subjects that could have LD’s. He would have them signal (with eyes) when they were lucid and then count to 20 in the dream (he also had them do it beforehand in RL to check the accuracy of their counting.). What he found is that time passes the same in dreams as in real life. If dream time were slower then the count to 20 would be almost instantaneous to a person in real life observing the counting starting and counting ending signals.

yes but if you want i think it is possible to slow down tim (in your dream)

I understood you a long time ago
for some reason, you keep explaining : )

I just now remembered a much longer dream I had when I was about 14-15, it wasnt this interesting and vivid, nonetheless, it was supposedly a week or so, when all of the time it revolved around this girl I had a huge crush on, and in the end we got together, only to wake up and realize its all a big dream, what a disappointment!

thats happened to me before

we did in fact get together after that in real life but it didnt last very long, or maybe the dream was afterwards?.. I cant remember.
Lucidity master, did u ever try to count seconds in your dream? whats the longest youve ever come to if so

True, only the powers of universe can stop your time-break

not if the universe is on your side

30 to 45 minutes. Im surprised at how easy it is to stay lucid the longer you practice

I suppose my longest is actually one of my shortest. My longest in the dream felt as though it lasted an hour to an hour and a half, but I looked at the clock just before and after falling asleep and it had only been about 10 minutes.

The rest of my LDs generally feel like they last between 5 and 30 minutes, and they actually do last that long. How odd that the one that feels longest was actually one of the shortest.

O good heavens no, I have no desire, or patience, to sit there in an LD and count one-one thousand, two-one thousand etc. for 45 min to an hour. I’d probably go nuts from the boredom.

I couldnt believe how long this lucid dream lasted. It was so weird. First I was being drug across a floor, and was lucid after that. I talked to alot of DC, and one of them was telling me something that sounded very importent,but I have trouble remmbering dialog, and it was sooo vivid. I even tried to wake up from it, but couldnt. I never thought I could ever stay lucid that long. If it wasnt two hours it was atleast an hour, and a half. It was one of the coolest LDs Ive ever had. Has anyone else ever stayed lucid this long? I know I shattred my record of 30 to 45 minutes. I never thought it possible to stay lucid that long.

AMAZING!

I have often found that lucid dreams that seemed quite long while i was dreaming, seem alot shorter when I write them down. We humans are not very good at keeping track of long time spans. A few seconds we can do quite well, but a couple of minutes is hopeless. It’s good though, if our dreams seem to last longer than they actually last, even if it is by tricks, it feels like it lasted a long time and that’s what matters.
