How to have meaningful dreams

This is the best method I’ve come up with to date.

To optimize the frequency of psychologically esoteric dreams—if you’re into that sort of thing—here’s what I recommend. First, you need to wake up an hour early, but still be able to get back to sleep. That means you need to be getting enough exercise in your daily routine, or else you won’t be able to get back to sleep. Then, drink a strong cup of coffee or pop a caffeine pill and go back to sleep. This ought to kick off some pretty bizarre dreams. The caffeine will start to kick in after about half an hour and the last dream will probably take on a mystical sort of feeling.

If you immediately remember the dream when you wake up, write down the details in as literal and autistic a manner as possible. There is probably a method to your dreaming brain’s madness, but it’s almost never immediately obvious. For example, I had a dream this morning where a character was observing some of those atomizers that you sometimes see in the produce aisle, which were watering some plants. He laughed and said “You might as well be drinking cat rubber.” Although this doesn’t make any sense, I had the feeling that he meant the mist coming out of the atomizers was tainted. After reflecting for a while, I remembered that yesterday I learned shipments of assembled parts coming from overseas, and that these were called CAT shipments. I made another leap and realized my brain was warning me about potential contamination in water passing through parts with Chinese gaskets. Like I said, not immediately obvious.

Unfortunately, you don’t get to pick what sorts of weird insights your hindbrain is gonna send you. Chinese gaskets aren’t something I have ever given any thought before.

So there are three skills you need to practice: have the dream (this post), remember meaningful details, and then interpretation. If I figure out how I do the last part, I’ll let you know.

    I have heard, but not tested, that a fraction of a nicotine patch worn to bed gives a nonsmoker awesome or fucked-up dreams.

    I have heard about and tested taking some zinc before going to bed. Can’t say for sure if it gave me more vivid dreams on the first few nights or if it was coincidence. In any case the effect wasn’t very consistent but my routine wasn’t either.

    If you are into hypnagogic hallucinations, sleep deprivation and resulting increased sleepiness seems to increase their occurence.

      Last part is a definite. Huperzine-A also works too. I once found myself in a dream that was a warp between the games Pitfall and Just Cause, because of Huperzine-A.

      Power naps after rough sex amplify the ability a thousand fold.

      • Pseudorandom Bypasser says:

        >Huperzine A

        I know two pretty different people who took it and got very different reactions. An extraverted and neurotypical xM guy got some negative effects (headache and nausea) but mostly positive effects (hallucinations) while an introverted and neuroatypical xT got only nausea. I’m not familiar enough with neurotransmitters and other related stuff, but Aeoli could possibly make something out of this.

        Where do you think we are?

        • Lazer says:

          >Where do you think we are?

          Deuteronomy 24:

          1 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.
          2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife.
          3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;
          4 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

            I didn’t take you for a Bible thumper. What’s your religious history?

            • Lazer says:

              I was an Altar Boy at a Roman Catholic Church. I also played one of the Three Kings in a church play.

            • Lazer says:

              I was also in the holiday choir at the local Lutheran church as well. Ive also read sermon during mass. Probably explains my distaste for gammas so much.

              p.s. I also used to ride my bike across town alone and recite Psalm 23 to deal with fear. This was during times at night that matches up perfectly with when sabretooh cats would have been attacking neanderthal caves.

            • Lazer says:

              Also, myrrh is sublime to smoke out of a hookah.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          Of course the xM imposed his dreams on the world around him :-).

          • Pseudorandom Bypasser says:

            I thought you would’ve found some insightful occfood from that anecdote. At least it fits the introversion & acetylcholine idea. Huperzine A inhibits acetylcholine breakdown and the introverted xT had higher baseline levels of it, meaning that he developed SLUDGE syndrome: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SLUDGE_syndrome

            Now I also understand where the nootropic effects of Huperzine A come from: increased acetylcholine and better learning and memory as a result. Wide AH, isomorphism and thought cascades rock.

            Also forgot to mention in the original comment that both of them purposely OD’d on it as an attempt to get psychedelic effects. Safe nootropic effects probably occur on smaller doses. I’d imagine that it affects deep thals more strongly.

            (Spam filter ate this comment couple of times. No need to accept them.)

      • Aeoli Pera says:

        That sounds fun but not very meaningful.

        • Pseudorandom Bypasser says:

          The zinc or hypnagogic hallucinations part?

          Zinc: https://www.google.com/search?q=zinc+and+dreaming

          Most of my hypnagogic experiences (they aren’t limited to hallucinations and also include cognitive phenomena, as you might already know) are just funny randomly generated noise but they include originality, recombination and what you call detailed simulation. Maybe your magic brain would be more effective in this by producing more meaningful content. Many great geniuses before you have benefited from these. :^)

            ACTUAL DANK TIP :
            50mg Zinc+10 thousand iu Vitamin D3 +400 mg magnesium +50mg B6(as Pyridoxal 5 phosphate!)+no sugar and little refined carbs+ a shit ton of cholesterol(the pre-cursor to test) from good cheese or eggs= massive and immediate test boost. Peaks day 7 and holds.
            Really have to say this is the BEST specific tip I’ve said on da blergh. Try it!
            The war on sat fat and cholesterol is probably another trick by (((them))) to neuter us.

    Start taking these – one with breakfast, one with dinner. You will wake up exhausted.

    • MM says:

      Mix 200 mg 5-HTP with 20 mg melatonin, listen to some dank music and drift off.

      If you’re brave listen to something evil(Rite of Spring tier) while drifting off and see what happens.
      ….
      Used to do this for a long time. Would be cool to do it again some night this week.
      Melatonin really is special. The 200 mg 5HTP serotonin bomb is basically just insurance.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Are you being sarcastic? Why would I want to be exhausted?

    • Ophiuchus says:

      Start taking these–one with breakfast, one with dinner. You’ll wake up #woke to the globalist agenda.

      On a more serious note: if you really want to ride the dragon, eat some spicy food a few hours before bedtime. Many say that it always gives them nightmares, but I’ve found that it actually acts as a sort of general intensity-multiplier for strangeness and vividness in general. I think the fact that it gives a lot of people nightmares is due more to the general negative psychic energy floating around in the atmosphere than anything.

      • Pseudorandom Bypasser says:

        Does that also boost one’s verbal intelligence by providing more ways to dance around using the words ‘jew’ and ‘kike’? Interdimensional psychic vampire goblins and all that.

        • Ophiuchus says:

          Unfortunately, that ability is only unlockable with the upgrade to #BRAINFORCE PLUS, which we #JUST SO HAPPEN to have available #RIGHT NOW at #30% OFF

          The entire Infowars Store is a veritable epic symphony of snake oil playing out in real time.

          Though… I do wonder what would happen if one were to ingest a man-sized dose of every single one of their various powders, pills, potions and panaceas all at the same time? Would you Ascend, becoming one with the Prisca Sapientia? Would you experience ego-death? Would you turn into a huge, writhing mass of shit like Tetsuo at the end of Akira? Somebody has to do this. I nominate Bice.

          • Ophiuchus says:

            No, wait, actually I nominate Mead.

            • Ophiuchus says:

              ACKSHUALLY, now that I’m re-watching this scene in the new light of Edenism, I’m getting an extremely Starchild-y vibe from it, especially towards the end.

              Let’s look at the creator, shall we?

              The neoteny and the forehead are there–and you can see this reflected in how he draws even the masculine characters with the small, upturned nose and fivehead–but I’m not sure I’m qualified to classify the temps or not. Paging Kensuimo!

            • Koanic says:

              I lean towards agreeing about the vibe. But Asianness trends Starchild anyhow. Ant people and the ansible.

            • MM says:

              TBH have tried so many neutraceuticals for the lulz I’d love to A S C E N D with AJ.
              Just don’t make me try my own thalforce, goy.

    • Son of Distant Trebizond says:

      Also, a book recommendation: Man’s Unconquerable Mind, by Gilbert Highet.

      May be salutary over future syntheses…

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/apr/12/trump-xi-jinping-chocolate-cake-syria-strikes

    Anyone got any suggestions for surviving the impending nukefest in case trump lights the cannon?

    • Lazer says:

      Go to some place in the country down wind from major city centers. Hide out there. Some place with a basement, and use the fallout shelter there. Or build your own vault. Most people are normies and probably have not even thought about it. Be prepared for hostile takeovers after the dust settles.

    • MM says:

      Wear a gasmask even while sleeping. Filter will last a week if you aren’t outside. Don’t go outside at least 2 weeks. If you have to crack a window for air after a few days its fine(heavy particles will have settled).Take IOSAT potassium iodide up to 2 weeks. STORE WATER!!! Have tarps, ductape, nails, and wood to cover up windows destroyed from overpressure.
      That’s it for surviving the initial blast(if you are in an area that IS survivable). If you foresee an all-out 3000 warhead+ scenario then you have to have 1-10 years of food,etc. before the temperature gets warm enough to grow a crop able to sustain you all year.

      • Lazer says:

        What if they just detonate them at high altitude?

        • MM says:

          The largest bomb currently fielded outside of the chinese military(Which has less than 300 nukes btw) is only 800kt compared to the 50 megaton Tsar Bomba.
          Also detonation at a high altitude, while good for destroying ground targets, would ultimately be a GOOD thing as fallout is a joke compared to a ground detonation.
          The defeatist attitude most people have towards their survival in a nuclear war is not based in reality. There are 1/6 the nukes ready to go as there were in the 80s. Be prepared to survive, whether you want to or not.

          • Heaviside says:

            >The defeatist attitude most people have towards their survival in a nuclear war is not based in reality.

            It is based on America’s state religion: WWII.

    I’ll give this a try sometime.
