The algorithm didn’t trigger an audio track, as it was looking for multiple events like this in a row. I will update it to optionally trigger on only a single event, because of the vividness of the dream. The spike looks similar to when I open my eyes while awake.
Category: Lucid Dream
According to a team of neuroscientists at UW there are:
Neurons in the mammalian brainstem that focus exclusively on new, novel sounds, helping humans ignore ongoing, predictable sounds. The neurons are located under the cortex in a part of the brain called the inferior colliculus. These neurons provide a unique model that can be used in the future to explore some of the neural mechanisms underlying memory, prediction and selective attention.
So instead of just introducing new signals to attain lucidity, it may be worth further investigation to trigger lucidity by removing persistent signals…
Another track played in the morning and woke me up during REM sleep, feeling very refreshed.
Preparation: chewed a few calea leaves.
Preparation: chewed a few Calea leaves four hours earlier.
Six blinks can be seen again before the audio track played and induced a few seconds of lucidity. Another track played an hour and twenty minutes later when the next REM phase was detected and I was able to remain airborne for almost a minute.
Three blinks can be seen before the anthem, then some strained eye movements followed by another four blinks.
Although I was focusing on the end of the dream and thinking through all the things that I would have done differently with more awareness, I simply started seeing the room I was in through closed eyes. There were things that I knew could not be there and I was able to get up ever so slowly and set out on an epic adventure.
