Just out of curiosity. I have Lucid dreams on a nightly basis, I see people I do and do not know, and I have sensory issues in my dreams ( I think I "turned of hearing" in my dreams because of one horrible experience a few years ago). 

As you know, It's a strange world, almost like another dimension!

I do believe dreams can predict the future and help solve problems. I think there was a quote from the X-Files once that went like "Dreams are the answer to question we haven't learned how to ask." Subconscious cogitation, desires, fears, all can come out in your dreams. One of the most interesting experiences I had is when I had coder's block on a program I was writing for school and in the middle of the night, an old man came to me and told me how to fix the program. I don't necessarily believe there's anything paranormal about that or dreams in general. I think their problem solving and sometimes prognostic qualities come from your mind just crunching the numbers behind the scenes. I tend to always go back to Occam's Razor in these sort of topics, though going back to the X-Files agian, Mulder called it: Occam's principle of limited imagination, haha. Sorry, I'm a sci-fi nut. My love for sci-fi is probably a knee-jerk response to the fact that I believe in an ordered and explainable universe.

A recurring dream I've been having lately is that women/girls from my past that I've had feelings for or fallen in love with will come to me and try to get me to cheat on my girlfriend. It actually makes me feel like a good boyfriend, because I've always shot them down, so even in my dreams, I'm faithful. I'm not always a great boyfriend, mostly due to my N, so it makes me feel like much less of a bastard.

That's AWESOME. I Have seen every single episode of X-Files...twice and I too find it incredibly insightful and philosophical. But I suppose to me, I guess I'm the worlds biggest skeptic, because I don't believe in an ordered and explainable universe ( in addition to being a bit of a sci-fi geek, I dabble in Math, physics and the like).  For example, I have a hard time understanding the word "finite". You can unravel anything, including "finite" numbers or time to go on infinitely. Then there's dimensions. I think there are about 13 defined dimensions... and I can't understand what is going on past the 7th. (Completely un-related to narcolepsy or sleep at this point... sort of)

You should study linear algebra. I've talked with Nasa scientists who've worked with 8 digit coordinates before. And you can skew the grid anyway you want with vector spaces. Linear Algebra is one of the easiest higher maths to learn, but in practical application, it can lead to the weirdest *BEEP*.

I have lucid dreams on a daily basis, which to be honest covers most of the points in the poll above. 

 

Dreams often come related to new memories, or how i am feeling in that timeframe.

This kind of (on a non-sustential basis) confirms the idea that the functions of sleep is to reprocess memories (short to long term storage, kind of like saving your ram contents to a harddrive) 

 

If i am feeling down, i will dream of soothing things - which also differs in itself. Like i can picture a person calming me, or simply having a dream where i do some awesome skiing. 

So on, and so forth (with emotions)

 

Then theres the "scary" or "evil" dreams. My problem is that after the military i wasn't really afraid of dying (you should experience what this does to your fears) - so i cant really picture anything i am afraid of in my waking mind.

Of course certain social situations amongst other things, but its not really fear - its not like i am afraid of it, i just dislike it. 

However, in my dreams i am just very, very afraid. No reason attached.

Which doesnt really make sense, because the reason someone is afraid is because they are (potentially/believe they will) moving from a positive to a negative state.

 

Then theres the social dreams, they are very much like the "evil" dreams except i cannot categorize them as such.

I can wake up and be 100% sure i have had a conversation with someone about something, but when i ask that person about it - they have no memory of it.

So my mind sort of plays me here, and this really scares me (mmhm). Have you seen old people with dementia?

 

I also have functional dreams - where i find the solution to problems. I cant really wrap my head around these, so i wont write too much about them.

 

Finally theres the dreams i can control. I can somewhat control the dreams mentioned above as i am playing around in them, however i am not aware of doing so until i wake up.

These dreams are wierd man. 

Often i put myself in a situation where i have control of a plane 2d or 3d. I tried 4d, but that didnt work :P

Then i can more or less create anything on that plane. - It has to be from an idea, and i can only do major alterations.

I can for instance create a model of the Eiffel tower, but i cannot put a person besides it, if i do then either one of those becomes a blur.

I can create a city, but i cannot control an individual structure in that city. If i change one of the structures, then the entire city changes.

Anyway, these dreams hurt if i go on for too long. It physically hurts. It starts with a sort of chemical taste, then after a while it hurts like if you were to get an electric shock. So i do try to avoid these.. its kind of fun though :P

 

This stuff is just too crazy to talk to any sane person about, so i haven't really talked about it for length before. Only mentioned a few points in a passing conversation or something like that.

I dreamed that my father had drowned in a bathtub and one week later he died of an aortic aneurysm. I dreamed that my moms best friend had died of lung cancer and two days later I found out my mother had stage 4 lung cancer.when I was twelve, I dreamed that a spaceship was falling out of the sky then i watched as it into flames when it hit the ground melting people who were running towards me and the following afternoon the Challenger blew up.

when I was 12 I was falling asleep and I became paralyzed and felt a body on top of me moving down toward my feet rubbing against me. I have many many dreams of a sexual nature about my ex boyfriends and celebrities and they are so realistic I can smell the Cologne taste their mouth and feel their skin long after I've woken up, I kind of like those. I also felt my cat bounding across the bed after it had died.

sometimes as I'm falling asleep I will hear voices, old time music like on a 1940's radio and my parents talking to me. in fact just last night I heard my name whispered very loudly to my left in my mother's voice.

every single night as I'm falling asleep I fall into a very strange dream like states. usually I am very disoriented and I wake myself back up a little bit and then fall back into it several times before I finally fall asleep.

all of this is brand new to me. I never realized something else might be going on. I just assumed I had really vivid dreams and usually I can tell the dreams from reality but sometimes there is a blurred line. in the past I've wondered if it was paranormal like perhaps ghost experience or past life experience but I'm very much a skeptic.

I did not often talk to people about these incidents mostly because some of them are a little bit embarrassing and also because I was a little afraid people would think I had a mental problem.

I know that the dreams I had didn't match the following scenarios exactly but those type of dreams rarely if ever occur unless there is a matching or close to matching scenario afterward and whenever I do have a dream about death or catastrophic explosions, I'm afraid of what I will find when I turn on the TV or answer my phone.

Its just nice to know that I'm not crazy lol.

Yeah, this is pretty much the reason why i dont talk to anyone about it.

 

I actually got paranoid at some point (hearing voices when i was drowsy, i did need some background noise though), but i got over pretty fast somehow.

I convinced myself that i understood why i was paranoid, and then i just started ignoring it outright.

Two days later it stopped, and has never happened again.
