Slinky, I know what you mean about feeling more inclined towards spirituality and the deep feeling of "knowing" just how the universe works when floridly manic. I honestly feel there are kernals of truth that can be found in mystical and esoteric religious scriptures from around the world that I have "discovered" while in those profoundly high states. However, the trick is always grounding those realities in everyday life and making those discoveries work in my world.

About your urge to sleep and finding your vivid dreams more fascinating then waking life - well, depression would be a first response to that info.

I am a very vivid dreamer myself and find myself often waking myself from dreams that are not much fun or too real. I'm not sure if this is lucid dreaming or just some conscious realization that I am sleeping and CAN wake up.

I have had one dream in which I died. I have had a number of others where I've approached death, usually in a falling elevator.

Dreams, I feel, can be symbolic or precognitive, but mostly are just chaotic representations of what ever is going on in my world at the time. I have a few that have really been precognitive and any number that have had a profound cathartic impact on my psyche with their symbolism. But mostly I find my dreams to be just a mess of images bound together by themes of the day or week. Uusually emotional themes.

How old are you? I'm 48. What books about metapysics are you reading that are your introduction to the topic?

Thanks for answering my thread.
