Professor Richard Wiseman is conducting a nationwide dream experiment using a special iPhone app.

Sky News said:

Professor Richard Wiseman, who claims to be the most followed psychologist on Twitter, hopes to sweeten people's dreams using their smartphones. The self-described "psychologist, author and magician" hopes to attract thousands of people to take part in the dream manipulation experiment.

Sounds a lot better than the dreams I usually have. Most of mine are usually me at work, nothing weird about them just me working. Its so annoying dreaming about work then waking up to goto work. <_<

Totally right! I can't imagine letting someone control my dreams that's a little freaky. I love my dreams they are too important to me. That is our subconscious communicating with us, processing and learning things that are important to our daily lives. I would not allow anyone to tamper with my dreams. They're mine!! lol

You think there's going to be  soundscapes, then you wake up in the middle of night to "Vote for Obama, Vote for Obama".  :lol:

Don't mistake coincidance for fate.

  • Our universe was created out of a desire. A desire to experiment, interact and evolve within a multitude of planes of consciousness.

We don't need an app to control our dreams.

Doing it by your own would be, in my opinion, a lot more better.

So you have these two faster-than-light neutrinos walking into a bar...

Very good point Dharma! exactly what i was thinking. Same with Jay! There is a reason we all dream individually lol. Not only that, im just surprised at the amount of people that go running to jump on the bandwagons, the level of stupidity is actually amazing. I thought people would be smarter than, " yeah put your dreams in us" -.-, people willingly give into things like this, and willingly gave away rights aswell lol. its funny and ironic, or will be ironic in the not too distant future.

thats nice, now they can access our subconcious better and program it more effectively. Yey for mind control!!!
This is stupid, and very dangerous if you ask me. Letting others control what goes on in your mind while you are unconcious? really? And this is actually suposed to be a good thing? wow.
