Anyone here likes to daydream alot, or fantasize about stuff that could never happen while trying to fall asleep?
I often dream of time traveling and going back to the medieval period with modern technology and be seen as a god

 No.259871

I do that with music, my daily playlist is rather narrow and sometimes I try to eke out some freshness by imagining myself being a person from decades ago listening to this crazy shit after only ever hearing things like boring classic rock and sinatra and stuff, dad music

it's honestly silly but it sorta works

I slip off to sleep easiest by imagining I'm basically Dr. Manhattan and I fuck off to another planet, lightyears away, and terraform it to my liking. There is a stupid part of me deep down that thinks this will actually happen one day.

Literally everyone does that. You don't have to start a thread with a fishing question like on /r9k/.
If you want to have a thread about daydreaming then just have a thread about daydreaming.
No need to bait responses with dumb questions that play on the reliability facespace meme.

Lucid dreaming time!

Yes, I have maladaptive daydreaming. It has caused me immense problems. I used to have massive problems sleeping.

>maladaptive daydreaming

I never heard of this term and reading the definition on wikipedia definitely rings a bell.

Back to the OP I do and always done stuff like this. Back when I used to be intersted in hacking I used to dream eyes open about being a super duper h4x0r who will pwn the world or more recently a MMA champion or some WW2 infallible, stoic and courageous general.

I just think it's a way to not think about problems and escape reality, on par with video games.

I used to when I was bored in school. Now when I spend time imagining scenarios or whatever it's in the context of a story I want to write.

I have talked to actual professionals on the subject and most think that maladaptive daydreaming is actually just a form of dissociation that is a symptom of other disorders and not a disorder in of it's self.
It is the reason it wasn't included in the latest DSM.

 No.261859

Yeah I like to read books maybe 10 pages at a time and for a few moments think about the scenarios and ideas in the book. I'm not so good at imagining I'm part of the story yet, but I want to learn how to read novels and reimagine them in my daydreams. Right now I can only do this for about 30 minutes at a time but I'm training myself to daydream even longer. Novels are a good way to start, I've also started drawing in the hopes I can create these places I can imagine myself getting lost in.

Yep I used to just sit on the porch daydreaming living a vigilante/superhero lifestyle for hours at a time while listening to music. Was pretty fun.

 No.261888

Occasionally when I'm doing work and listening to music. I'd have ideas for stories and scenes. Some are so dramatic and moving I'll even start to cry right there. Now that I don't have an employer over my shoulder I can take time to write them down, but most of the time I get so overloaded with work I end up having to throw it on the back burner and forget about it because the task at hand is important to my lively hood. Part of its more of an editing mechanism though, if I can't remember it the story was probably not worth writing down. There are some good dialogue scenes I thought of while waiting in traffic one time, but specific dialogue is hard to remember.

I can see now the server problems people are complaining about. This will be the last time I try to post this thought
