    Do you travel when dreaming, to other dimensions, parallel worlds, or realities or are you creating your own dreaming world to interact in?...

    Dreaming and Travel to Other Dimensions

    One of the more unusual and stranger ideas out there concerning dreams is that they literally take us to new worlds and realms on the fringes of our understanding, that they allow us to transcend some barrier to fly off into the alien landscapes of unknown dimensions.

    The most well-known of the theories concerning this is what is called the “Many Worlds interpretation,” or also the “Mulitverse” theory, which has its recent origins in the 20th century.

    In these interlocked realities, all possibilities of our actions and decisions have been realized and gone off into their own reality or world, essentially creating infinite daughter universes. This is all based on the idea in quantum physics that every possible outcome and configuration exists simultaneously until a sentient observer forces it to congeal into one.


    These new universes with their own futures are not inferior, they just represent all of the outcomes that we have never seen, and ours the outcomes that they have not seen, and they all exist right now at the same time.

    If these realities are out there right on top of us, overlaid and stacked upon us, then is there ever any communication or contact between them?

    Is it possible to peer into or even enter these parallel realms?

    The idea that such crossovers might be possible have already been suggested with phenomena such as deja vu, which could be a stray memory from an alternate you who has been there crossing over to you and making it you feel like you’ve been somewhere even if you yourself have not.

    This is where the idea of dream travel to other dimensions comes in, which ponders the question of whether our dreams are at least at times offering us glimpses of alternate universes beyond our ordinary perceived reality.

    If one is having a recurring dream that is incredibly life-like and vivid to the point that it feels like they are really there and they feel that they have visited this place or lived this scene even though they have not, at least in this reality, then is it possible that through some little-understood process they are tapping into the memories and experiences of an alternate version of them?

    If you, say, keep dreaming about being in a different profession or living in a different house or even country, right down to where you can smell and even taste it, then is this perhaps because you have actually experienced that in another timeline and your sleeping mind has simply opened up enough to allow you access to it?

    Through dreams are we getting snap shots and peeks of how our lives could have gone differently?

    How does dreaming hypothetically allow us to link into alternate dimensions?

    • One idea is that since our conscious mind and the barriers it constructs are lowered, it allows our subconscious mind to cross over unfettered through these windows between realities, and suggests that at least our subconscious may be operating in our own reality and others simultaneously.
    • Another is that even though we only truly witness one course of events for each action or decision, we can nevertheless imagine how things could have gone, called “counterfactual” experiences, and since these are things that by the Many Worlds Interpretation have actually happened in an alternate reality and are often manifested in dreams where we live them out, then this means that dreams could be showing us how these counterfactuals have actually played out our other selves.
    • Lucid dreams could be attempts to alter the histories of an alternate world.
    What is going on here?

    Are these people really making contact with their own consciousness in other dimensions or are these just extremely vivid dreams conjured up by their own minds in this one?

    This is all rather far-out to be sure, and although it is theoretically possible there is no real evidence that there are parallel universes or that our dreams are anything more than the rumination of our sleeping mind working things out.

    Heres an experience of a dream that leaves the impression that this individual was experiencing events in a different reality:

    Such cases are numerous, and in fact you have probably experienced something like it yourself.

    There are certainly bizarre aspects of our universe and reality that we have yet to uncover, and Max Erik Tegmark of he Massachusetts Institute of Technology has mused on the matter:

    I believe these are occurring sometimes, past life memories relived at times and that at times we astral travel to future timelines and alternate universes as well...at times. IMHO.
    Telling the difference from just a wild dream to any of these other things is difficult to impossible.

    I've read some stuff about Hugh Everett and his Many Worlds Interpretation but it's just so hard to wrap your mind around it all.

    I try to think of it as a station on the radio. It is at on frequency while the one near it is at another. Alternate or parallel universes are similar, but do not exist in a linear way as with electromagnetic frequencies. They extend in all possible directions.

    Here's another tell from the OP link, did she just dream?...

    I’m sitting on my couch in my living room and I was tired so close my eyes for a while to rest, like maybe five minutes or so. When I open them everything seemed a bit off. Like items in the room were either not in the same place or I have never seen them in my life before.

    Now I know some people would say I was dreaming, but at this point I think I can tell the difference from a dream to reality. Like I could look down at my sweater and count the threads. Anyway in a confused state I walk into my kitchen and see even more strange items.

    There are children’s toys laying about (I do not have kids) and I see one of those big boxes of Crayola Crayons on the counter. I pick it up and open it and pull out a random crayon. The Crayola Crayons in case someone doesn’t know has the name of the color printed on the side, and when I checked this one read “Blue”. But when I looked at the crayon it definitely was not any type of blue that I was familiar with, it was more of a green color.

    Then this is where things got really freaky.

    I look out of the backdoor and see MYSELF doing yard work in the backyard. I watch for about a minute and I’m like I should probably leave. When I walk back to the living room everything faded away to black. I open my eyes and I’m back on the couch in what I assume is my normal time line.

    A movie is fiction and will have no bearing on decisions I make in the real world...

    In the movie this scientist woman and her colleague create this "portal" which lets them travel between dimensions, ofc this happens by mistake.

    her husband dies and she goes to the alternate reality to meet her "other husband" and bring him into her dimension.
    but then it turns out her "other husband" is a killer and has killed her other version in the other dimension and she regrets bringing him into her life.

    We are all affected by our environment, any choice you make will affect your personality and your future actions and outcomes. Also I believe that the movie is trying to tell viewers about this.

    There could be infinite similar versions of you but they wont be YOU when it comes to personality. Except for IDENTITY.

    Doesn't matter if the movie is science-fiction, it is an idea which is very realistic if you try to look into the future.

    Of course, this is just pure fantasy. Nothing wrong with that.

    IMO dreams are nothing more than the brain grabbing info at random when not in control= sleeping..

    If it gives pleasure to those who try to make something of it, then why not[​IMG] Have fun[​IMG]

    That sounds like a bleed-through from a parallel reality. She should have gone outside and had a conversation with herself.

    Just seeing it your way.
    We do not know for a fact that all experiences may not be more than mere dreams. So there is no fantasy here only discussions, experiences and speculations.

    I often wonder if we travel interdimensionally while dreaming.Sometimes when i woke after a dream,there was a kind of sad feeling, a yearning..as if i belong There also. Or more there than Here. Idk but its a haunting feeling that stayed with me for hours after waking. Lately i' ve not been recalling any dreams, for a few months now. Could be my anti depressant, a generic of Prozac.

    I believe out of body experiences during sleep are real and much more common than most people would care to admit. I'm not sure about interdimensional experiences, however.

    6638FB1A-8F17-478A-8F14-C784E53C1051.jpeg There are many spiritual planes of existence. I chose the Eckankar diagram because it is fairly easy to understand. Choose what system works for you. Robert A. Monroe books are a good start as well as Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda.
