I am kinda curious if anyone else dreams like this, or its just a freak phenomena for me!
It’s not perfect lucid dreaming, where your aware you are dreaming and can total control it. The only way I can label it is semi-lucid, because of the odd way I can react to death in a dream.
Take this one bizarre one. My hometown I grew up in gets attacked by robots with chainsaw arms and legs. I get shredded to bits and you would normally wake up from that right? I didn’t. My soul went into the largest one. I took control of it and smashed the other ones to bits. Now that’s when the weirdest part came because my mind simulated what its like to be a machine. I was COLD, and as I walked away THEN I woke up.
And a TF2 one that was pretty funny death wise. When I was headshooted by a Sniper, it did the deathcamera thing. Again, a death should wake you up, but instead I went into respawn spectator mode, declared that was bullcrap, then woke up lol!
And the last example, a group of people decided to try and kill me. I get stabbed and my wrists were slit, but I did not die. I then proceeded to kick each and everyone of their butts before I woke up. The disturbing part is my brain likes to simulate what it feels like to be stabbed, so I feel the cold hard steel in my back etc.
And speaking of pain! Ever get an injury in a dream and wake up with the pain in reality? I had a super messed up dream were a flower burst out of my foot… I wake up and my foot is in pain, like I had a Charley Horse and that’s what my dreamstate translated it as…
