Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part V
The bridge embodies connection between Heaven and Earth, the union of a man and a deity. It is a form of a bond between different points of sacred space. The bridge has always meant a transition from one state to another, a change or a desire for a change.
Earth and Heaven were once connected by a bridge (or a tree, or a vine), and thanks to this people could easily communicate with gods, because there was no death. Since then the connection between Earth and Heaven has been lost, so you can only cross the bridge as a “spirit”. For that you have to either die, or to enter a trance state. This transition is rather hard to achieve, as it is fraught with dangerous obstacles and not all of the souls are capable of overcoming it.

Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part IV
The dream is real as long as you remember it.
With every second our present inevitably turns into the past and we can’t put the clock back. The main proofs of the existence of this past are our memories. Events that occurred five or ten years ago remain in our memory in a form of sketchy scenes, which contain only the most vivid, sharp and unusual changes in the daily routine. When you cogitate over the past, you watch someone else’s life from the sidelines. But what if some dreams leave not less lively memories about visual, tactual, and taste sensations? If we were to evaluate the reality of the past by the fact of having memories of these sensations, then dreams that were not forgotten in the morning would arguably be just as real.

15 maj 2015, 00:44 av criminalrecordsKerrang! Magazine premiere the brand new music video by The Kut today (Friday 15th May)! The track, I Don't Need Therapy is taken from the recent 'Rock Paper Scissors EP' and was directed by Mike Gripz. Watch it from 4pm at http://kerrang.com
Classic Rock Magazine
Tracks of the Week
"Bad Man marks the precise point in the Venn diagram where L7 meets I Wanna Be Your Dog meets Courtney Love, which is equal parts terrifying and a cause for long and rowdy celebration. Punk's not dead, pass it on."
"Despite the loud Courtney love references they're more than just Hole II. Mario has an Against Me! Strut to the intro, while DMA is a pounding gem"
Top 5 Tracks To Listen to This Week
"There's a slice of angst-offloading gutter rock that's a kissing cousin of Hole, but The Kut's scuzz-covered family tree also stretches further back to the garage rampages of The Stooges."

Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part III
REM sleep, rapid eye movement stage.
We don’t own anything but our inner world.
A dream is the only place where everything is under your control. The law of conservation of energy and substance no longer applies here: you can create any object you like out of thin air, you can bend space at any degree of freedom, you can fly, teleport, rush with the speed of light without fearing experiencing hundreds of g.
The most interesting part is how our consciousness simulates feelings we’ve never experienced in real life. If during a lucid dream you jump out of a window, first you experience a normal falling (as you should in real life). But just few inches from the ground the falling gradually slows down. When you hit the asphalt, it turns into a jelly, which slowly absorbs you and kicks you out of the current level of sleep.
Having all of these limitless possibilities one can't help but question the necessity of this “real” world. Why do we need it, if we have a much more pliable inner world where the only masters are we ourselves? The reality is that in this “real” world we don’t own any material things. In a blink of an eye we can lose everything we consider belonging to us “by right”.

Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part II
Light sleep, the second stage of NREM sleep.
What would life be like if we wouldn’t have to sleep? Certainly, we would have missed a ton of fascinating dreams. But we would have been able to achieve such great heights without drifting off every day even for couple of hours. Alfred Herpin knew it firsthand. This man had a rare case of insomnia, which allowed him not to sleep at all and this in no way reflected on his health. At some point of his life he claimed that he had been constantly awake for at least 10 years in a row. The rest of the more than 6 billion people will never experience this state. Because even just a day of insomnia results in problems with health for all of us. Within a few sleepless days human consciousness loses its clarity, causing an overwhelming desire to fall asleep with occasional “collapses” into a borderline state with confusional consciousness. This method of moral coercion is used during interrogations and is considered to be a refined torture.
