    I often wake up wishing I could remember my dreams as dreams are really cool and often quite insightful.

    If you were able to record your dreams,how much game time would be replaced by watching your dreams?

    Nonsense.

    The correct answer is: some.

    I've turned off all the avatars and crap, so don't expect me to be impressed by yours.

    My fear would be that someone else would get to see them.

    You can remember your dreams if you keep a dream diary. Doesn't take long for them to start sticking. This is when you realise that 90% of your dreams are really dull or fantastically obscure.

    ...and mostly consist of needing a wee, locking a lavatory door and finding loads of people can still open it. LET ME WEE FFS.

    Part of me is glad I'm always getting interrupted once I wake up.

    I think a lot of people would be disappointed. Those epic, seemingly coherent dreams that seem to take place over hours are actually super condensed and would be so jumbled with other stuff that they wouldn't make any sense.

    You only really remember the stuff your brain manages to file away correctly as its filtering through all the junk.

    Having poo-poo'd dreams general quality, I am looking forward to being off over Christmas and actually getting to remember some. The morning alarm destroys all chance of remembering usually these days.

    I dreamt last night there was a bunch of horses living at the bottom of my parent's garden. After a while they started to die and their heads fell off, then the ones that survived started drop kicking the heads towards the house like rugby balls. One smashed the patio window.

    I'm in two minds as to whether I'd want to see stuff like that again.

    I dreamed about kotor once. I'm sure you all needed to know that so I put it in.

    I find it quite strange that even if you remember a dream once you've woken up, you forget them quickly during the day. It's like you can't "save" them even if you remember them when you're fully awake.

    I might be fully aware of a dream I had when I drink my coffee, but two hours later, it's completely gone, while I do remember the newspaper article I read at the same time at breakfast.

    It goes into RAM. If you don't shift it into more stable memory before it gets overwritten *poof* it's gone. That's why writing it down fixes it in so well, I think. Probably you'd get a better fix if you remembered it out loud - so telling someone or just talking to yourself would probably move it out of the really fragile short-term memory too.

    I'm not sure that works either. I went through a phase of jotting down any obscure dreams I had, but when I came back to the notes a few weeks later none of them rang a bell or made much sense.

    I used to get that when I wrote stuff down and then went back to sleep again. I stopped keeping the notes because A) I woke up every time I had a dream, which is a lot of times to wake up over night and B) I saw 'THE BEAVERS CAN'T GET A JOB' scrawled on the notebook one morning.

    Haha. :D

    The owls are not what they seem.

    I imagine Operation Ore would be interested in several of the recordings from this forum

    Far too many of my dreams don't last more than seconds after waking up, although the snippets I often do remember probably make some of them worth forgetting ;) Being able to see any and all dreams could give you (or me?) all sorts of doubts about your (my) psychlogical wellbeing ;)

    If you quickly vocalise your dream you'll remember it.

    Every dream I do remember, which isn't many, generally has me undertaking some mundane task. Highlights include going to the supermarket to buy some flour. The only other dreams I remember involve nightmare type scenarios. I don't have a single flying dream or anything cool like that that I can remember.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    I haven't flown in a dream since I was a kid, but every few years I have a dream where I can run as fast as thought and it's awesome.

    When you need to run though it's like wading through treacle.

    Yeah i get that! I always have dreams where I have to reach a certain speed in order to fly. But something happens in my dream where I NEED to fly, and for the life of me I can't run quick enough to take off.

    My theory is that your legs get caffled in your duvet/blanket or something, stopping your legs from moving, or at least makes your brain think your legs are restricted, and by proxy it filters through to your dream and alters it.

    That might be total hogwash though! :)
