Title: Okay, 3D sucks
Post by: bluefoxicy on January 11, 2011, 02:58:18 PM
I suddenly have depth perception.  I never have before.

The world looks like a crappy Xbox game.  Or like this

(http://thekneeslider.com/images/blenderpeugeot.jpg)

That's what stuff looks like in the real world.  I thought only 3D modeling programs produced so much fake, plastic-looking overdramatic 3D effects.  I'm staring at a tea cup like I smoked something I shouldn't have.

It just happened.

My hearing also suddenly became very fixed and precise and sharp, among other odd perceptual shifts.  I had a serious mental breakdown when I realized the synesthesia was gone; but I think that's a matter of an overloaded neural link, and it's slowly coming back.  Might need a few days to recover.  I don't think I can actually survive without that; the world is in 3D but everything I hear is very flat and lifeless, that's not right.  Where's the shapes and colors in the music?  Where's the impossible textures and hues that can't physically exist?

I'd say you should call your doctor.

Last night I dreamed a turtle was eating a taco...

It was all so clear and in 3D.
The sound of the turtle crunching the taco shell was astounding.

Last night I dreamed I was a foot.

 A foot as in afoot, ie. walking and traveling?

 Or, a foot as in that platform that is attached to the bottom of the leg?

Interesting either way.

blue, it's been fun messing with your threads and all that over the years.  But sometimes I do worry about you.  I don't think you are rational half the time.  I think you are having a hard time communicating and it's being mistook for attention getting.  Maybe you should go see a doctor about these things you think about.

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children she didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth without any bread.
She whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.


 From Wikipedia; "In the Old Testament, the almond was a symbol of watchfulness and promise due to its early flowering, symbolizing God's sudden and rapid punishment of His people"


 Dude! You got problems...
Title: Re: Okay, 3D sucks
Post by: capozzoli on January 11, 2011, 11:25:03 PM
Nah. I had problems for a long time now, long before the dream.

I dont go for that interpretation hugger mugger either. Dreams are just the brain unloading.

All nuts will make you have weird dreams. Try a teaspoon of fresh ground nut meg before bed and let me know what happened in the morning.

I have another recurring dream where I go everywhere completely naked from the waist down. Im never sure if I intentionally left the house that way, but it never seems to bother me. Its actually very refreshing.

Blue, maybe if you stare at those tea leaves long enough you will see the future.

 Me and the Ms. Tubercle take a Caribbean cruise every couple of years. Been trying to get her to go to a nude beach. She says NO!, All the jiggly stuff is reserved just for me. Not sure how this is related....just sayin'...

Nux Vomica grated up and ingested with milk will make your body feel like 3D- one or two will do the trick.

Is that the homeopathic remedy?  My mom gave that to me whenever I didn't feel well.

Nutmeg contains myristicin, a weak monoamine oxidase inhibitor. Myristicin poisoning can induce convulsions, palpitations, nausea, eventual dehydration, and generalized body pain.[12] It is also reputed to be a strong deliriant.[13]

It should also be noted that the recreational properties of nutmeg can take about four hours to take effect, and large enough doses have been reported to cause severe tiredness, uncontrollable and prolonged sleep coupled with dehydration. The effects have been known to last longer than 72 hours, depending on the size of the dose.

Sounds like fun Cap - thanks for the advice...

Ok, maybe take 1/4 or 1/2 a teaspoon the first time in tea or something. It did it with a teaspoon and no ill effects. It didn't notice any psychotropic effects but its relaxing like valerian and kava root. Well at least not till I fell asleep.

I just have whacked out dreams anyway.

I have really bad night terrors occasionally. My wife wakes me up saying that I am screaming in all horror, I dont even remember the dream only that she is wakening me up, and I am all sweaty. Its weird cause I almost always remember my dreams.
Recently found out that my father has the very same night terrors. Heredity?

Nux Vomica is nutmeg. And ingesting it- something like a whole nut or more has effects. Interesting effects.  ;)

1. I just have whacked out dreams anyway.
2. I have really bad night terrors occasionally. My wife wakes me up saying that I am screaming in all horror, I dont even remember the dream only that she is wakening me up, and I am all sweaty. Its weird cause I almost always remember my dreams.

1. Same here, it might have something to do with your/my upbringing.  
2. It might be hereditary.  My dad has a serious recurring night terror where he thinks his sister is in bed with him so he freaks the hell out and kicks my mom out of the bed and then instantly goes back to sleep (now she just waits for a minute and then gets back in bed).  I get night terrors that involve unknown people or dogs trying to kill me.  Naturally I fight back; luckily I've only connected with my wife twice, the first time I punched her pretty solidly in the nose and the second time I swiftly kicked her leg.  That hadn't happened for a long time.  Then a couple months ago, in a dream, a vicious dog (beast) was attacking me so I reached down to choke the life from the damn animal.  Unfortunately I had grabbed my left leg with my right hand just above the knee, I squeezed so hard that I nearly tore off the tendon that follows the hamstring on the inside of the thigh.  Still hurts a little.

Weird dreams are great but I could do without the night terrors.  Oh yeah, the hops pillow (dream pillow) works for a night or two.  Crazy dreams

According to wikipedia, nutmeg is Myristica fragrans, and Nux vomica is the strychnine tree.  I also try to avoid eating anything with the word strychnine in it :)

I put a lot of nutmeg in my eggnog, I don't remember any weird dreams from it.

I have frequent episodes of sleep paralysis...when I sleep on my back, I get into these recursive dreams where I believe I'm awake, am laying there, and can't move...I "wake up" only to find I'm stuck again.  You actually semi-hallucinate...I've held conversations with my wife in this state she disclaims knowledge of.  It can go a half a dozen times in a row, until I can "break out" of it and actually wake up.  Once awake, if I turn on my side, I'm usually good at that point.

Knowing what it is makes it a lot more tolerable...the first few times it was distinctly horrifying.  I was hearing people break down the door, ie. home invaders, and I was frozen, unable to move.  Now, even in the dream state, I know what's going on so it isn't quite as disturbing.
