I heard this one as a kid. Anyone have any idea where it came from?

It has been around forever I am not sure where though...when I was a kid...it isnt true. I have died plenty of times in dreams.

Edited by Fluffybunny, 08 December 2007 - 03:48 AM.

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

one of those urban legends, like when you have a dream that you are falling.. if you hit the ground you will die

'What do you do if you step on a mine, Captain?'
'Well, the usual procedure is to leap 200 feet in the air and spread yourself over a wide area…'


Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand - strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

It isn't true. Ask any scientist (sleep researcher or no), any psychologist, any person who has had a tramatic experience, or ask me.
I have died (in my dreams) many ways:
Kicked in the face by a pony (hey, it almost happened the next day...)
Car Crash
Bullet
Airplane crash
drowning
asphyxiation (suffocation)
poison
fire
et cetera (and the rest)

Yeah, I die all the time!
And you also die, thousands of times every month, you just don't know it. Your mind takes you through a training course of instict every night. Sleep up, and prepare to die (lol)
You may never have a near death experience, but you will be preping for one for your entire life.

Wow you do die a lot. Do you feel pain in your dreams? Because I remember that when I get shot in my dreams, I feel some pain. It would suck to experience suffocation and fire.

This subject interests me...

Since I was a young girl I remember dying in my dreams.

When I was about 12 I had a dream I died by leathal injection for a crime I didn't commit.  I remember yelling for my mom and the just pettering out as everything went black.

I've died in tornados so many time I can't count.

I had a dream two years ago that my husband-to-be shot and killed me with a fire arm.

When I fall in my dreams, sometime I hit the ground and die.

Recently I've been killed by zombie attacks at least twice and once saw my own head ripped from my body.

Weird eh?

An episode of the 'Twilight Zone' followed a man who fought off sleep because his death was waiting for him as soon as he slept. Another man, maybe his shrink convinced him it was in his head.
It ended with him falling asleep and died.

As a kid I remembered being scared to fall asleep because of that.

Wes Craven claims that he wrote the original Nightmare on Elmstreet based on these articles he read in newspapers about teens who had such terrifying nightmares they would cut off their own eyelids so they wouldn't sleep and one had even died from a heart attack in his sleep after telling his parents how terrible his nightmares were and was scared of falling asleep. If these articles were real or not who knows.

I have never, EVER, had a death in a dream even though I have been close to it, I never got to that point where I loose my life. This is a perfect example wich I quoted above, many times I have dreamt of falling from a building, and it's always the same building, but I wake up before just before hitting the ground, in the last second.

I actually die in a lot of my dreams for whatever reason..

A few months ago I had a dream where I actually died but didn't wake up from the dream immediately, I kind of zoomed out and saw my own death, then when I woke up I guess I was in sleep paralysis or something but I was in this weird environment. Well, that faded away in a few minutes and I realized I was in my bed, but for a second there I thought I had actually died  tongue.gif.

But other than a change of your mental state, a dream has no effect on reality.
