Similarities in mechanism

Started this discussion. Last reply by Fallen Messenger Jul 13. 7 Replies

An unintended round of self-experimentation has me wondering how similar daydreaming and regular dreaming could be in how they function. Specifically, I've noticed some curious parallels between…Continue

Quick question

At the top of your profile there's that title thing, the one that says "X's Page" unless you change it. I've seen some profiles with another text box under it, with smaller text, acting like some…Continue

Event spirals

Started this discussion. Last reply by Source Apr 12. 9 Replies

Events in the last few months and most notably the last couple of weeks have had me thinking about the possibility of there being "stages" to a maladaptive daydreamer's condition over time, different…Continue

Copycat effect?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Eretaia May 24, 2016. 2 Replies

I was wondering if a consequence of having an imagination as powerful as the one we daydreamers have could, in a sense, heighten our "senses". Not the conventional physical senses, but some kind of…Continue

These specters don't come free of charge

Something left a void somewhere, long ago. Within that empty crater you would find only madness, so you filled it with ghostly images of what should have been there in the first place. You thought it a good enough replacement and dove in. After that, only nightmares.

"It's tricky to say whether it's maladaptive or not, but it surely sounds like it's already pretty intense if you're whispering and making expressions without noticing - and with others noticing it for you. It can get worse from…"

"Well that seems odd to me. It basically means that your daydreams have suddenly turned actively against you... without provocation? I mean, it just doesn't make any sense whatsoever, no wonder you're puzzled about it. Personally I think…"

Tale of a Blinded Architect

Posted on February 12, 2017 at 2:32am 0 Comments

Another song made by yours truly, no alien languages this time! Hope you'll like it!


Change in sight

Brothers of a creed

Divinity long slumbered, now arise!

Greatest lie

Words of a false prophet

Thirst for truth and vengeance in the new


Gift of fate

A promise from afar

Long sought peace is now within my grasp

Cast aside

Justice of another



Awesome title

So, less than a week to go before 2016 kicks out. According to the internet, this has been the worst year in history. According to my country's weather forecasts, it's been the year with the hottest summer ever (they say that every year). According to my own experience, neither of those.

But experience is subjective. Different people exposed to the same event almost always internalize it in different ways. We are limited to our own point of view when it comes to first-hand experiences,…


Trouble ahead

As some of you could clearly tell by my ramblings in chat these last two weeks, I've been having an increasingly hard time in keeping my sanity in check. Numerous aspects that had persisted for eras are coming into harder and harder friction against reality, whether I like it or not. Streams of thought that I had somewhat managed to chain into the back of my head for years are gaining unprecedented power.

My mind is fragmented, falling to pieces, and each of those pieces is fighting…


A little deviation from the usual rants

The young woman woke up, her eyes opening up to a scenery quite different from the one she was in mere seconds before.

"Are you all right?" asked another female voice. She looked up. The two had never seen each other before, but it was obvious that this one had been there for much longer. "Not a nice trip, was it?"

The newcomer sat down, still trying to understand what was happening. "Who... Who are you? Where are we?"

"My name is Ima. I don't really know what this place is, but…
