    Are you awake in color or black and white? It doesnít seem to make sense to think in those terms. Dreams are another form of consciousness. Itís the same brain conjuring up your reality, just not directly through your senses. Anyone here been on SSRIs? I got dreams so real I could not tell the difference between reality and dream. I don't have dreams that vivid any more. It could be that the drug enhances the dreaming mechanism, but it is still the same mechanism.

    For a period of time I took an antidepressant for Seasonal Affective Disorder. I think it's an SSRI. It caused sleep paralysis and hynogogic hallucinations. Ugh. Real screamers, they were.

    It was like being asleep with your eyes open. Green faces floating all around the room. Looked like illustrations from Charles Kingsley's "Water Babies." The icky goblins that lay squashed under the rocks beneath the ocean?

    Yes, I definitely had quite an experience with that particular drug. Were yours also nightmares?

    No nightmares that I remember. Certainly nothing as bad as yours.

    I did remember doing things that I could not possibly have done. I only knew they were dreams because the context made absolutely no sense.

    im creative and i can either not remember my dreams or when i do they are not visual at all. they are always just feelings. like, if im falling in a dream, i dont see myself falling but i sense that im falling (in 3rd person...always) and when i look to see myself, its just an aura of myself. its quite weird.

    also define creativity. creativity can be random and structureless or structure itself can be creative.

    Black and white dreams are very rare for me.

    They're not that different from when I am vividly day-dreaming, except I am lying down and feel a lot more rested afterward.

    It is really common for me. In fact, almost all the dreams that I remember is of this sort.

    Invariably the last dream I have before I wake-up (if I remember having at least one) is one of this sort. Not only do I know I am dreaming, I can usually control what is happening in the dream too.

    I used to have these things I called "dot dreams," because the visual component tended to simple dots (usually black-and-white now that I think about it); sometimes nothing about them changed visually throughout the whole dream but I would simply feel changes in intensity. Really nothing else, not even sensations per say, or music or anything. Just changes in intensity, and quite intricate changes in intensity. The dreams could be quite long.

    I'm so old I dream in day-glo. Faaaar out, Man!

    Heh.

    Forgot to name the drug. I believe it was Sinequan.

    Yeah. Those "dot dreams?" I get that kind of stuff when I've had ether. Haven't noticed it with the modern anesthetics. All kindsa geometric patterns behind my eyes. Shoulda called the stuff an "anaesthetic." Boring, those geometric patterns. . .
