Signs that we actually live inside a Matrix-type drill and it is breaking

Scientists and technologists have been debating and asking if we are living in a simulation, something like the ‘Matrix’ movies in which a character called ‘The Architect’ describes how he has designed a mathematically precise world in which humans live. their lives without being aware that they are in a world of digital dreams.

Here are some obvious indications that we are living in a world of holographic dreams of mathematical precision and some crucial signs that we are waking up.

1. Fractals everywhere:

Everything in this world, from our galaxies, to clouds, coasts, leaves, shells, body parts, neurons, are fractals created through repeated mathematical patterns that can be easily programmed and projected in a simulation from A computer using simple rules. So where is this computer that has programmed our fractal universe?

2. Sacred Geometry:

As revealed in fractals, everything has an associated geometry, which is simply mathematics that appear visually in nature, at cosmic and tiny levels, either in the movement of the planets or in the corollas of flowers, or in Atomic and subatomic structures. For example: the flower or the life and forms of merkaba. Is there really a person or AI out of somewhere, who has programmed our world in this way?

3. Great holographic design:

Fractals may indicate that the general design of the universe is holographic, a projection where each part contains the whole within itself.
The patterns we see in the physical world, whether in the large macroscopic universe of spiral galaxies or at the smallest microscopic levels of subatomic components, all indicate a holographic projection of, as if projected directly from a “superior” computer that He has simulated our world. What seems to us many billions of years of creation will be relatively a few moments or days for the simulator in parallel with the multi-religious concepts of the 7 Days of Creation of God or the Kalpas of Brahma in the dream world of Vishnu if we see time and the relative and inter-dimensional. Who is this God and where is He or She or who is projecting the world?

4. Lucid imagination and dreams:

Our mind through hypnogogic imagination and dreams can simulate reality with as much precision or better than any well-known advanced computer. With practice we can see, smell, taste, feel emotions, talk, hear, touch, walk, fly and even read books in our dreams as clearly and lucidly as we do in real life. If we wrote down our dreams every night and practiced meditation, we would be able to remember and be lucid in our dreams in order to be “alive” and “conscious” in them. Similarly, we can also master how to imagine and create a fantasy world in our waking hours by clearly seeing images, words, symbols and visions in our third eye that can be equally lucid if we are sufficiently relaxed and focused. Our mind (subconscious and conscious) can perfectly simulate reality in dream states, either in meditation or in sleep. We also have devices that can help us experience lucidity at will, although we don’t really need them. Do we all have our own internal powers to simulate reality without computers?

5. Clairvoyance:

With practice we find that our dreams are not simply images and random sensations gathered by our subconscious, but also provide symbolic or clear information regarding our past, present or future. Sometimes we can see exact visions of situations in our dreams like the ones we would experience later. Similarly, with training we can develop our meditative vision or the third eye to see our past, present or future clearly as well. This is not limited to the vision but also to all our senses, through which we can not only see but touch, feel, smell, hear and taste something of our past, distance or future as if we were really there and We can also verify that it is accurate through our direct experience over time. In this way time becomes another dimension that we experience and we can move backward or forward. Although science or physics can lead us to travel in time as shown in “interstellar,” we can also have meditative experiences of the same when we are really ready or awake. How many of us are awake beyond time?

6. Telepathy:

All minds are one mind. This can only be verified through telepathic awareness. We all have moments of telepathy although we could have easily ruled this out. We have contacted mentally to know who is about to call, what we will be told, even to give a message to someone through our mental or heart communication instead of through letters or the Internet. In our technological era we have developed a dependence on the devices, however if we continue to meditate we can be recipients or projectors of messages and visions that can reach others or us through others. The remote vision of any place or situation through long distance, psychometrics or remote vision or perception through an object, or simply the sensation of telepathic energy is possible and verified by psychics who are developing their abilities. This only indicates that we are in fact interconnected in our reality and that any separation from our minds is a mere illusion like our energy networks through space and time through all and everything. Could we all be energetically interconnected with each other through time and space?

7. Synchronicity:

Things happen that make us believe that there are no coincidences in life. Just as our dreams are not mere random sensations and thoughts gathered by our unconscious mind, our reality around us is also not a mere collection of random events. We can see signs of synchronicity in the way something or someone suddenly appears and we just thought about it. Just as our navigation data or daily life is secretly tracked through our phones and computers to present us with messages and announcements that are ‘relevant content’, our universe also ‘out of nothing’ presents us with relevant content based on the patterns of our mind. We can see numbers and patterns everywhere that tell us that things are less random and more interconnected than we imagine. A random choice of tarot cards could not be so random if you give us a message or an accurate picture of what is really happening or will happen in our lives. At any time we can see clear signs of a meaningful connection not only with others, but with everything in the world.

8. Law of Attraction:

We all know that we attract what we think, what we believe and what we are. Our hidden and conscious mind is playing in our reality when we can see our life move in a way that our mind moves. Negative thoughts, attitudes, feelings and beliefs create negative experiences while positive ones create positive experiences in our daily lives. Often some practice is needed to break the negative patterns through consciousness and replace them with ideas and patterns of life or positive beliefs that transform our lives by reprogramming our consciousness. Are we the programmers of our individual or collective universe?

9. Magic Manifestation:

With enough practice of the power of our mind, emotions and visualization, we can really project situations, experiences and even real people, through our mind as if our mind were the magical computer that is creating or simulating the projection around us that we call reality . It may be difficult for skeptics to believe this, but those who practice these skills can gain direct experiences of creating or manifesting their lives not only unconsciously but very consciously at will. We no longer have the illusion that we are controlled from outside AI simulators or the gods of heaven, or that we are in another person’s dream world as a mere character. We see our own power of creation and our own life as a lucid dream that we can control at will to influence any event in our world. If something and someone can be projected in our lives at our will, then who is the creator of our universe?

10 virtual reality video games

People think that virtual reality movies and television programs will not be left behind. This type of entertainment is the closest we have come to create a completely realistic simulation, in which you can see and touch another world or another life. Isn’t it fascinating?

Or is it not? Has another civilization already created a completely realistic simulation and got us into it? Philosopher Nick Bostrom of the University of Oxford believes that it is very likely that we are living in a simulation. Bostrom bases this on the principle that all civilizations are very likely to reach a point where their technology is so advanced that they can perform simulations where participants never suspect they are in a simulation. It makes you a little paranoid, doesn’t it?

11 Artificial intelligence is becoming increasingly advanced

The story of The Matrix began with humans creating computers with artificial intelligence that took over the world. In our world, artificial intelligence (AI) becomes more sophisticated every year.

Just as our ability to create video games with RV shows that civilizations are getting better at creating simulations, our ability to create AI shows that civilizations are getting better at creating independent machines. What would happen if the civilization that preceded us already created an AI so sophisticated that the machines took over the world and all of us were their sources of energy? Of course, all this is only theoretical. But it is certainly a matter of concern! I bet that after you read the rest of these messages your mind will be wandering like crazy – even through your dreams.

12 Math Runs The World
Have you ever wondered why the same numbers still appear in your math and science classes? Pi, the speed of light, Planck’s constant, the gravitational constant … the list goes on. The fact that we continue to see the same numbers and equations that govern the movement of objects points to the conclusion that our universe can actually be a computer program.

This is a somewhat circular argument. We cannot know for sure if mathematical equations make the universe work because we are in a simulation, or because this is how the universe really works. Is energy always equal to mass by the speed of light squared (E = MC²) because someone designed it that way, or because this is how things worked? We may never know.

13 We can’t observe anything too closely

Microscopes have come a long way since they were first invented. Thanks to microscopes we can observe the inside of the cells and fertilize the embryos in petri dishes. Electron microscopes allow us to really observe atoms. But when we try to get closer than that, everything looks blurry.

We know that atoms are made up of smaller particles, but when we try to observe those smaller particles, we cannot get a clear picture. Why? Astrophysicist George Smoot believes that this is what happens when you look too closely at a computer screen: you only see a lot of blurry pixels. We may not have the technology to observe subatomic particles yet. But we also may not be able to get so close because we are in a computer program.

14 Subatomic particles are governed by codes

You would probably need a graduate degree in quantum physics to fully understand this theory, but here is the simplest version: Protons and neutrons are made of smaller particles called quarks. According to researcher James Gates, the behavior of quarks is governed by certain rules, and those rules are very similar to the codes that are executed by web browsers and search engines. By that logic, the rules that govern the subatomic particles that compose us could actually be computer codes. However, this observation does not necessarily mean that computer codes precede subatomic codes. We may have a small problem with the egg and the chicken. Or, the similarities could be just a coincidence. But if you ask me, this could be a major problem for which we can never find the answer.

15 The measurement problem

The problem of measurement is a paradox in quantum physics that nobody has been able to explain … yet. The concept is quite confusing but the simplified version is this: Something can only be defined when it is observed. It’s the problem with Schrödinger’s Cat: until the box is opened and the cat is looked at, it is alive and dead at the same time.

Some quantum physicists think that the problem of measurement, and other paradoxes of quantum mechanics, can be explained by the fact that we are living in a simulation. Just like a video game needs a conscious player, Schrödinger’s Cat needs a conscious observer. On the other hand, the fact that we do not understand the problem of measurement does not mean that the solution is that we are living in a simulation.

16 The Big Bang makes no sense

In the StarTalk podcast, Neil deGrasse Tyson and theoretical physicist Brian Greene suggested that we are probably living in a simulation because the “Big Bang” – the explanation of how our universe formed – does not make mathematical sense.

Greene said: “We used to consider the Big Bang as a unique event that gave rise to a universe, but mathematics shows that not all that fuel is spent on a single big bang. In fact, the bang itself ends up generating more of the fuel generated by other bang, other universes. ”

The idea is that there are multiple universes, and our universe could be a simulation created by people from another universe. The idea that there are multiple universes, however, does not necessarily prove that ours is that of simulation, if any of them is.

17 We are very, very lucky to exist

In elementary school of astronomy, it is learned that the Earth is close enough to the sun to sustain life. If we were closer or further away, the planet would not be hospitable to life.

This is not the only fortunate circumstance that had to occur for life to exist. For example, if dark energy, the energy that exists in the vacuum of space, were even slightly stronger than it is today, the stars could not have formed. Without stars, there would be no planets, much less hospitable planets.

How the hell were we so lucky that the conditions of our universe were adequate for humans to come into existence? One possible answer is that we were not lucky. Someone programmed the force of dark matter, and other variables necessary to sustain life, in a computer system.

18 There’s a guy who can actually fold spoons

Finally an example that you don’t need a physics degree to understand! Uri Geller is an illusionist famous for his trick of folding spoons, a trick that appears in The Matrix. The young man who folds the spoon tells Neo: “Don’t try to fold the spoon, that’s impossible.” Instead, just try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. ” Is Uri Geller bending spoons when he realizes that we are actually living in a computer simulation? Probably not. This video shows how it is really very easy to fold a spoon with your fingers only, making it appear that you are bending it with your mind. Sorry to tell you that, but it’s all an illusion. Watch the video for you to see for yourself and then try to surprise your friends and family with your new “skill.”

19 Mysterious disappearances happen all the time

The author, David Paulides, has spent his entire career compiling books full of cases of mysterious disappearances, in which people seem to have disappeared from the face of the Earth. Paulides does not offer a concrete explanation of all the disappearances, but makes it clear that he thinks there is more than just coincidences.

What if all these disappearances could be explained by the fact that we are living in a simulation? What if the people who have disappeared have discovered how to pick up a phone to leave the matrix? This is only one possible explanation among a lot of strange explanations (such as alien abductions and portals to alternative dimensions), but it sure is interesting and is making us scratch our heads in search of answers …

20 The burden of the brain is one thing

In The Matrix, characters can learn new skills simply by connecting to a computer. At the time the movie came out, this concept was pure science fiction. But a breakthrough in 2016 indicated that it could soon be a scientific fact.

Researchers in California discovered a way to teach people to fly a plane by transmitting a simulation to the participants using electrode caps. Of course, it is not as simple as the movie, where Neo learns Kung Fu through a computer program. The participants did not go from zero pilot knowledge to perfect knowledge only with the use of caps. But they did improve their piloting skills significantly more than the control group. This result indicates that learning through “brain load” may one day be possible.

21 MIT Artificial Neural Fibers

In 2015, MIT discovered a way to send visual stimuli and drugs directly to the brain using artificial neural fibers. The researchers designed these neuronal fibers to study how the brain works; They can provide more detailed information on neuronal activity than previous brain mapping technologies. The researchers also hope to use the devices to treat neurological disorders. Which would be a great discovery that would help those with neurological disorders!

These artificial neural fibers were not designed for the purpose of implanting information directly into someone’s brain. But they could possibly be used for that purpose if necessary. This is just one more proof that we will reach the point where learning through brain loading is a reality. One day, friends. One day.

22 The Phenomenon of Multiple Personalities

The psychological condition we call “multiple personalities” is officially called Dissociative Identity Disorder (TID). Psychologists do not know for sure what causes this condition. Some think it is a side effect of traumatic experiences at an early age. While others think that it is not even a real condition; Everything is in your head.

But one possible explanation for the DID comes from The Matrix. Do you remember how Agent Smith can take control of other people’s bodies? It is possible that people who suffer from YES really have their bodies kidnapped, so to speak, by agents. People with SID report that when an alternative personality takes control, they don’t remember anything that happened while that personality was in control. You may not remember because your body was temporarily taken hostage. Hmmm …

23 Facts of superhuman strength

In The Matrix, Neo learns that he is capable of superhuman strength and speed. That is until he discovers that The Matrix is ​​like a video game in which he can cheat. In our universe, superhuman feats happen. I’m not talking about weightlifters who lift 800 pounds after training their bodies for years. I am talking about people who are suddenly able to lift cars.

An example is Tom Boyle. When he saw a motorcyclist being hit by a car and trapped underneath, he rushed to help. Although the maximum weight he had lifted was 700 pounds, he was able to lift the car (which weighed 3,000 pounds) from the motorcyclist so that the car driver would release him. Was Tom cheating with the Matrix rules like Trinity and Neo? Well … the scientific explanation of Tom’s story is the “fight or flight” response, which pumps adrenaline into your body. But that explanation does not rule out the Matrix.

24 Fermi’s paradox

The Fermi Paradox asks the following question: If there are billions of Earth-like planets in the universe that could support intelligent life, why have we not heard from anyone else? Many of these planets are older than ours. We know this because their suns are older than ours. Wouldn’t that indicate that other intelligent species in other parts of the universe have had enough time to evolve and develop the technology needed to communicate with us?

One possible answer to the question is that they have been communicating with us, but the government has kept these communications secret. Another possibility is that we are alone because in reality we are in a simulation that does not include simulated life on other planets.


The universe seems to have been created on mathematical laws. This could reflect the coding that was used by a creative race. The Fibonacci Sequence is a simple pattern of numbers where each number is the sum of the previous two. This can be observed repeatedly throughout the universe as if it were a predetermined code. It can be easily seen in the shapes of pine cones, spiral seashells and galaxies and DNA. It is almost as if the creators of our universe had been pleased with their design and started copying and pasting.


Isn’t it interesting that we can identify certain personality traits, purposes and strengths and weaknesses of a sequence of numbers that are aligned with you from the moment they were incarnated? In Pythagorean Numerology, your natal chart and your letter of names reveal precise truths about your true project. What is most notable is that these influences are apparent in all other people who share the same number of sequences. This software developer deserves a raise!


Electron microscopes allow us to observe atoms. But when we try to get closer than that, everything looks blurry. Atoms are made up of smaller particles, but when we try to observe those smaller particles, they become blurry. The same happens when we look too close to a computer screen. We only see blurred pixels. Maybe we don’t have the technology to observe the subatomic particles yet. Maybe we can’t get so close because we are in a computer program?


If we were closer or further from the sun, the planet would not sustain life. We also know that if the dark energy, which exists in the vacuum of space, were only a little more powerful than it is today, the stars could not have formed resulting in any planet, much less habitable planets. Was this just luck or did someone create a computer program to support life?

We are all an awake consciousness present simultaneously in our projected universe and within ourselves. While science and religions look around us to find the source of this projected holographic reality, meditation helps us to look inside and discover who we are.

Signs that nature has rewarded you with clairvoyance

Signs that nature has rewarded you with clairvoyance

Many of us think that clairvoyants are some special people whom nature has endowed with supernatural powers. In fact, clairvoyance or the ability to read information through the senses is a talent that is inherent in many people. They just don’t even suspect about it.

Each person has the innate ability to perceive information from the outside in a variety of ways. That is why children (and even animals) often understand and see what is hidden from our eyes. By adolescence, we gradually lose this gift. This is mainly due to the influence of society and the ridicule of friends who claim that excessive sensitivity is the lot of weaklings and dreamers. Often such people are even considered insane, because they prefer to simply forget about the innate gift.

The most famous way to see and understand more than the rest is clairvoyance. However, there are other ways of perceiving information, such as clairaudience (when you clearly hear what is hidden from others) or even clarity (when you know something for sure, although you cannot explain why). By the way, clairaudience is often combined with such a gift as clairvoyance.

How do you know if you are clairvoyant?

We suggest you familiarize yourself with the signs that somehow indicate that nature has rewarded you more than others. Or you managed to save this gift and didn’t lose it as you grow older.

1. You are very susceptible to feelings.  The fact that other people do not even pay attention or pass by, disturbs and worries you. And – for a very long time it does not let go. You constantly mentally address this, scroll, ponder. Negative emotions just tear you apart, so often think through situations that others do not even think about.

2. You are very selective about who you spend time with, whom you let into your life. There are only a few friends and acquaintances, next to whom you feel comfortable, not squeezed out and exhausted.

3. You somehow in an unthinkable way instantly see and understand the root of the problems of other people. They often come to you for light in difficult situations and you are even called their personal psychotherapist. How do you succeed – you yourself do not know.

4. You are simply fascinated by various ancient and historical things, symbols. When you visit such places, you feel an incomprehensible connection and delight from this unity. Most likely, this is due to the fact that you feel different layers and energies that have been preserved on the territory of ancient civilizations and settlements.

5. You have an extraordinary ability to empathize, and to such an extent that you literally “get used to” the consciousness of other people. Often even those with whom you disagree or who have harmed you in the past. This helps not only to feel and understand, but also to be healed.

6. Despite the fact that there are not many really close people around you, you are a social “moth”.  Every flower in the meadow and every person on the way are glad to see you. You fascinate everyone, everyone loves you, although you are not trying to please anyone. This is due to the fact that you intuitively understand what wave a person is tuning in to.

7. You have to struggle all your life with your emotions, which often cover you like an avalanche. Therefore, you had to learn not to let the feelings swallow you whole, which is often quite difficult.

8. You are very uncomfortable in places where there are too many people or things.  Therefore, you gravitate to open and free space. This is because you are very sensitive to a wide variety of vibrations (and negative ones as well), which means you suffer from bad energy.

9. You are not only a deeply sensitive person, but also a real thinker.  Whether you want it or not, but constantly wondering why certain things happen, and most importantly why.

10. You are probably using your clairaudience along with your clairvoyance: as soon as you catch some kind of obscure vibration of a person, place or phenomenon, you immediately turn your thinking on. Your goal is to understand what is really happening, to get to the bottom of the root causes.

Quantum theory of biocentrism: The soul returns to another universe after the death of the physical body

Quantum theory and biocentrism is a very interesting field of science. With its help it is possible to prove not only the controversial idea of ​​the existence of the soul, but also the relocation of consciousness to another place after the death of a person.

According to scientists, the structure of the Universe where we live, its laws and forces, constants, in fact, contains a fine-tuning for life. This implies the presence of intelligence of a previous meaning, in the sense that the “souls” of dead people live in the quantum dimension for an indefinitely long time.

Like all scientists curious in nature, Dr. Lanza became interested in physics, quantum mechanics, and astrophysics. An interesting mixture of interests gave rise to a new theory of biocentrism. According to today’s popular hypothesis, life and consciousness are fundamental parts of the universe.

The book of the theory of biocentrism: “How life and consciousness are keys to understanding the nature of the Universe”, published in the USA, has stirred up the topic of discussion “life after death”. The author of the book, Dr. Robert Lanza, a respected scientist, says: life does not end after the death of the body, and eternity can go on.

Consciousness: Beyond Time and Space

Lanza is an expert in the field of regenerative medicine and the scientific director of Advanced Cell Technology Company. The scientist is well known in the field of stem cell research, including a number of successful experiments on the cloning of endangered rare species of animals.

Not so long ago, the professor turned to the theory of biocentrism, to the very idea that death simply does not exist. Death is an illusion that arises exclusively in the minds of people. It exists because people identify with their bodies, naively believing that consciousness also perishes with the deceased body.

In fact, consciousness exists outside the limits of time and space. Consciousness (the soul – as we are used to) can be located anywhere: both in the human body and outside the body. The theory is in good agreement with the basic tenets of quantum mechanics, according to which a certain particle can be present at any place and time. Any event can occur in several, or rather countless, options.

Robert Lanza believes that multiple universes can exist simultaneously. These worlds contain several ways of possible scenarios of what is happening. In one universe, the body may have died, in another it continues to exist, in the next, consciousness moves to the first universe, for example.

The foregoing suggests that a dead person, during the journey of the “soul” through the “tunnel”, finds himself in the world where he once lived, and will now be alive again. And so on through the worlds, up to infinity. So death in one world means birth in another, as, incidentally, people believed before the theory of biocentrism.

Multiple Worlds. Parallel universes

The hope of continuing life in parallel worlds, and even with full “awareness” is an extremely contradictory idea, but it has many involuntary supporters – not only “mere mortals” want to live forever, but also some venerable scientists. Physicists and astrophysicists tend to agree with the existence of parallel worlds, suggesting the possibility of multiple universes, known as multiverse theories.

Science fiction writer Herbert Wells, revealed to society a wonderful concept of life in the story “The Door in the Wall”. Hugh Everett supported the idea in his thesis at Princeton University. It is basically said that at any given point in time, the universe is divided into countless similar options. And already at the next moment, the “newborn” universes multiply in this way.

For example, you can be present in some worlds at the same time: in one reading this article you consider the idea complete stupidity, and in the other you readily support the theory of parallel worlds! – Really great? Although according to another theory, the inhabitants of parallel universes will never meet, which of course is depressing.

The initial factor for creating multiplying worlds is our own actions, Everett explained. When we make a certain choice, one universe instantly breaks up into two different versions.

In 1980, Andrei Linde, then a scientist at the Lebedev Physical Institute in Russia, developed the theory of multiple universes (now a professor at Stanford University). According to Linde:

Space consists of many spheres that form new spheres, and those, in turn, form spheres in even greater numbers, and so on to infinity! In the universe, they are separated from each other, and do not know about the existence of each other. But they are parts of one physical universe.

It is an amazing fact that our Universe is not the only one confirmed by data obtained from the Planck space telescope. Using the data, scientists created an accurate map of the microwave background, observing the so-called “relict radiation” left over from the moment our Universe appeared. They also found that the Universe has many anomalies, including those represented by black holes and wide gaps in space.

Theoretical physicist Laura Mersini of the University of North Carolina claims that microwave anomalies exist due to the fact that our Universe is influenced by neighboring universes. Both holes and gaps are a direct result of contact with a number of existing worlds.

Quantum worlds

Thus, evaluating all of the above, an understanding comes that there is an abundance of places or other universes where our soul can settle after the death of the body, in accordance with the theory of neo-biocentrism. But does the soul really exist? After all, all these theories border on a miracle, the true magic of the Creator of the worlds.

Professor Hameroff of Arizona State University has no doubt about the existence of an eternal soul. Last year, he announced evidence that consciousness did not die after the death of the physical body.

According to Hameroff, the human brain is an ideal quantum computer, and the soul / consciousness is information stored on a quantum level. After the death of the body, quantum information migrates to the Universe, where the soul exists indefinitely. In turn, Lanza proves that the soul migrates to another universe. This is the main difference in theories, similar in claim to eternal life.

Roger Penrose, a well-known British physicist and mathematician at Oxford, supports this theory and claims to have found traces of contact with other universes. Together, scientists are developing a quantum theory to explain the phenomenon of consciousness.

They believe that they have found carriers of consciousness, elements that accumulate information throughout life. These elements are located inside neuronal microtubules, which were previously assigned the role of a transport line inside a living cell. Based on their structure, microtubules are best suited to work as carriers of quantum properties within the brain, scientists say.

A “vault” is capable of holding a quantum state for a long time, that is, microtubular structures can function as elements of a quantum computer. And accordingly, after the death of a person, the information does not disappear, but for nothing that, being in a quantum state, “flows” into the universe.

The further fate of the “soul” according to one version lives in this state forever, exploring the environment, or again goes to the world of the living, according to another theory.

Can I stop seeing nightmares?

Waking up in the middle of the night from nightmare episodes, the plot of which would be envied by the best screenwriters and writers in the style of horror, we are relieved to realize that what was seen was just a dream.

Nevertheless, the body needs time in order for the heart rate to normalize, and the whole body to release a trembling numbness, sometimes reaching sleep paralysis. Considering how frightening and unpleasant nightmares can be, experts are interested in the possibility of preventing them, including a complete “shutdown”. Despite the fact that not much research has been carried out in this area, scientists suggest that people who know the techniques of lucid dreams can answer this question.

Nightmares appear only in the REM sleep phase and last no more than half an hour

Why do we see nightmares?

Experts are convinced that nightmares are part of human experience and represent some kind of interpretation of experienced stress and psychological stress, even though in most cases children from 7 to 10 years are exposed to it. Doctors do not consider rare nightmares a pathology, but if disturbing dreams happen too often, they can significantly affect the upcoming day and the life of a person as a whole. Frequent nightmares can be a symptom of a psychological disorder that could be caused by extreme stress, trauma or certain types of drugs.

Despite previous sleep studies, nightmares still remain only partially understood. At the moment, it is known that often nightmares are dreams of REM sleep phase or in the so-called REM phase, which is characterized by rapid eye movement and increased brain activity. It was found that at the time when a person is in the phase of REM sleep, his brain is almost as active as in the wakeful phase.

Lucid dream is the boundary state between the phases of REM sleep and wakefulness

Can nightmares be prevented?

According to an article published on the portal, Japanese scientists have confirmed the existence of conscious dreaming and continue to conduct research on their study. For a lucid dream, it is customary to consider those dreams in which a person is fully aware of his condition and can even, to some extent, control the content of night vision, as well as leave it. Experts attribute “lucid dreaming” to a borderline state that lies between the REM and Wake phase.

Despite the fact that medical practice for the development of conscious consciousness is not yet used by doctors, some experts have already developed several methods for their development. For example, research results published in 2019 in the journal Frontiers in Psychology confirm the positive consequences for people suffering from constant nightmares after applying such an unusual therapy in a dream.

According to one of the methods, a person suffering from nightmares needs to set an alarm 30 minutes earlier than he usually wakes up, conduct his daily morning routines, and then go to bed again. According to experts, an awakening and a break between sleep, can help the human brain go to the intermediate stage between the phase of REM sleep and wakefulness.

According to experts, it is the intermediate phase that makes it possible to control a dream, and subsequently prevent nightmares, since brain activity in this phase of sleep allows a person to distinguish reality from dreams. Experts also note that lucid dreaming is only one of the methods to prevent nightmares, although they do not give guarantees of their complete deliverance.
