Yeh. I've even had original lyrics in my dreams before. I don't remember any of them now, but they never really made any sense anyway.

Did you know that the area in your brain that is in charge of mathematical and lingual logic is totally inactive during R.E.M? You only dream vague concepts that turn into something logical when you wake up. When this does not happen, you "don't remember your dream".

That would probably be why I can't seem to remember many details conversations when I'm dreaming or why numbers prove so problematic.

But yeah, I sometimes dream with lyrics too anyway. It's neato.

That isn't accurate. I read books and have conversations, see and process numbers, and remember it during later parts of a dream. Maybe most people's mathematical and lingual sections are inactive during sleep, but mine are not. This is, of course, only when I'm lucid dreaming... which is around half of the time. When lucid dreaming all of your senses are active as normal as when you're awake, it's not at all similar to normal abstract dreaming.

I'd say that your dream involves remembering something which you might not have dreamed at all... the brain is a fairly fantastic thing. I've dreams that lasted hours that were over in minutes, or remembered things that I hadn't dreamed before but made sense within the dream - memories made up on the spot as it were. I wouldn't be so quick to assume that your brain is wired differently to everyone else. Over to you, Edan.

Due to my inability to ignore people haphazardly believing something that is impossible... okay...

1. People sleep-talk.

Oh, well look, whaddya know, there goes your theory. People's lingual centers work just fine while they're dreaming. I'm fairly certain that having your lingual center active and not active at the same time is impossible.

I'd point you to certain predictions of quantum theory but that would likely get me relabelled "Fuckhead". I find that quite often the things people say when asleep are nonsensical. Aside from anything that's not proper deep sleep. When in proper deep sleep the muscles in the body receive no signals due to some mechanism which I learned once but have since forgotten.

Well, if things people say when they're asleep are EVER sensical, then the lingual center must be active in some way. By some strange coincidence, I have personally heard on dozens of occasions coherent speech coming from sleeping people. My late grandfather, who I was charged with watching 24 hours a day, would speak in his sleep constantly. Strangely, when he was awake, nothing he said would make much sense... but when he was asleep he'd have dream conversations with my aunt, in which he'd be clearly asking about normal mundane things like if we need to go out and buy more cereal or what we're having for dinner. His dreams sounded painfully boring...

Also, nothing is going to change that 'Moth' title any time soon.

Oh, also, once again there's always a caveat. People in deep sleep don't always have their muscles turned off. People that have night terrors move around plenty when in deep sleep.

Hmm. I will research further. This might require a sudden and drastic course change, then a few years spent in... research. Speaking of titles, shouldn't Edan be "Mighty Admin"?

I have night terrors or something sometime. I usually sleep on my stomach and sometimes I wake up lying on my back with my arms reaching out in the air. My grandpa apparently did some similar things when he was sleeping. He'd put his hands together and slowly move them into the air like he was doing a breaststroke or something and then he'd drop them to either side. My grandma would get kind of pissed about that, but she'd just find another place to sleep. My dad (other side of the family, that was my maternal grandpa) also sometimes does this machine gun thing while he's sleeping, but that's PTSD, so it could be different. I don't know, either way it seems like I'm genetically predisposed to doing something weird when I'm sleeping.


------

You guys!

I had a dream, or rather three different dreams inside of each other and I don't know exactly if I was awake or not in the intermediary stages. I dreamed that I was in living in a old school hotel with brass handrails on the staircases and elaborate carpeting, but poor lighting and facilities, and that there was this family that was coming in and visiting it for the first time and they were surprised on the level of jaws dropping and having no idea how to express themselves. I kept thinking "dude, it's New York, and this place sucks." I was also helping a classmate get a virus off his computer or something and in between I think I was playing X-men on a Genesis emulator?

When I was dreaming within the dream, it was about witches. I was in some sort of suburban community, not excessively rural, the houses looked like they would have been built within the past five years at the most, but there were witches. These witches were ordinary looking girls who were behaving normally enough, but the issue was in that everyone around them was going mad and would start running down the street and tearing each other apart. People knew what was going on, but since the witches could turn it on and off at their leisure, no one really suspected anything, and they remained quite nonchalant about it.

The first time I ran into the witches, it was in a room that looked like one of the bedrooms at my dad's house. I was following one of the witches around and she decided she didn't like that, so she conjured up some grotesquely obese man who was hiding under the covers of the bed. He wore glasses, was covered in skin lesions, and didn't seem to have any legs, but the strangest thing about him was that whenever he was nearby he would generate this intense, almost unimaginable heat. He kept trying to attack me or creep me out or something, but it didn't work out so well because I kept half waking up from the dream (I don't know if I was waking up into the other dream or if I was actually waking up and just going back to sleep again).

After that, the witches decided they weren't going to bother with me, not that I could easily tell which witch was which (yes I had to do that). I think it's probably because the witches were all really cute and whenever I saw one of them I kept thinking "hey, I'd ask her out if she wasn't trying to kill me" [this has also happens IRL, but I don't know if they're witches]. So they would send the people in the neighborhood on a murderous rampage for no particular reason (they derived no joy from it, and barely seemed to respond to it at all) and I would just wander around with them, seeing what they'd do and watching, and since none of them were trying to kill me, just each other, it didn't really matter.

There was a group of people that seemed to be outside the reach of the main witch I was following, so I tagged along with them for a while, but I noticed that one of the girls in the group (also really pretty) was rather blase about the whole thing and I started to think she was probably a witch too. We headed into another more distant house in the woods and as soon as we got inside, she turned the other people against one another and then pounced on me, but I woke up after that because my alarm was going off. I'm still not quite sure if she was going to tear me or apart or if we were going to have crazy witch sex or something. It could have been both.

Witches bite the heads off of their mates to force them to copulate.

That's mantises. You always get the two confused... Actually, that would make a lot of sense though.

It was hard to tell what she was doing. First she was clawing at my face like she was trying to tear my eyes out and then she was all trying to tear my shirt and pants off and rubbing up against me. I was like, "excuse me, miss? I am trying to kiss you but you are shredding my face and I do not wish that my blood should muss up your pretty features? Excuse me? Miss?" Except I wasn't actually saying that because I was sort of preoccupied. In the pants.
