Hey everyone,
I've just noticed that since I've been lasing more, I have been having more dreams about being caught lasing by the authorities.

In these dreams I'm usually outside pointing my lasers into the sky, and then out of no where a police helicopter is chasing me and aiming their own lasers at me. Once they even set fire to my house with some giant helicopter-mounted laser. These dreams are rather frightening and I've even woken up from them with a cold sweat haha.
(Of course in real life I would never do anything blatantly dangerous with my lasers like pointing them at a plane.)

Anyway...I was just wondering if anyone had similar experiences, or had any nightmares/dreams about lasers of their own, or if I'm just too paranoid for my own good :D

I have never had a dream about lasers, that I can remember.
It sounds like a insecurity about laser safety.
Before I shine any laser skyward, I let my eyes adjust well (5-7 minutes) to the dark. Only then do I scan the entire sky for plane lights. If I see any lights in the sky, even if it is very distant, I hold off on firing-up my laser.

According to Freudian theory, "all dreams are manifestations of hidden fears or insecurities"
IE: Dreaming of being naked in public=you having a negative body image.
These dreams can be stifled by experiencing the dreamed scenario in life.
I used to have these "naked in public" dreams all the time.
Then I discovered there was a nude beach in my area.
I started going there instead of a "regular" beach.
I have never had one since!

In this case you can not do this. Do not shine a laser at plane and get arrested.:(
However, double checking your surroundings to make absolutely sure there are no planes in the area, might help.
I know you do this already, but try doing it 2 or 3 times beforehand. Exaggerate this activity. Say out loud several times,"there are no plane anywhere in the area,I've checked 3 times"
This may alleviate your fears, ergo, your dreams.

I can never discuss my showering with a group of babes dreams on this form.....


On topic, never had a laser dream.

I do believe dreams can also be influenced by subliminal suggestion, like if you fall asleep with the TV on.....

We have a fish tank near the sofa, the filter always sounds like a waterfall, I have flooding dreams a lot when I fall asleep in the living room.

until what age ?
This happened up until a few years ago, so 40-45 YO. I weighed 250 Lbs. at one time, so I did have a real bad body image.
I have lost 90 Lbs. since then, although.
:wave:

when you point your laser to the sky is there a risk a pilot will denonce you to the police ?
By US law any pilot that spots a skyward laser has to report it. No matter how far away it was from his plane. Finding you is a different matter. Unless you stand out there for 30 minutes to a hour, there is almost no chance of finding out where (or who) you are. I always limit my sky pointing to 5 minutes, tops. Just in case!

they will catch you next time you use your laser :)
I don't think so! :wtf:
The only way they would be able to find me, was if I was stupid.
Number one, they would have to send a LEO unit out. Unless your shooting 5W up they probably would not even do that.
The police would not send a squad of cars out ,roaming the streets looking for a (possible) single laser beam. Some times they won't even send out anyone if you are being robbed or murdered.:gun:

The next thing they would have to do, is send a helicopter out to see if the pilot could spot the beam.
Of course, I'd hear and see the Heli. coming and shut it off before it got close.

So unless I was a total moron and kept shining it when I heard the Heli. coming, they would have no way of know who it was.
I've sky scanned many, many times (100's) without any problems. (except my neighbors coming over and clapping and cheering me on and wanting to hold and play with my "babys" Get yer' own, ya rednecks!)
It's one of those things; it is illegal, but they don't really care (as long as you don't shine it on a plane). If you use a little common sense and do it in a safe manner, you will be OK.

refer to the site below
http://www.d3scene.com/forum/real-life-hacks/17251-live-inside-control-your-dreams-long-but-worth.html

so as i was saying if you can control this it would be really fun O_O like for example you could dream about having all the lasers combined into 1 giant beam and shoot it at a mountain or somethin. lol

This isn't really a nightmare but I once had a dream where I was lost and stranded in the middle of nowhere and I flagged help with my Fusion. Without my laser, who knows, it might have turned into a nightmare.

I dream allot when i'm in sleepmode but today i had a incredible dream about Felipe, Prince of Asturias with his wife and daughter sitting in the back of the car. And I was actually in the front of the car and next to me was black driver. That is verry strange because this is the first time they where in my dreams. I had allot of dreams before ... See moreabout my brother, mother and other things we have a connection to so this is kind of usual but to actually see Felipe, Prince of Asturias with his wife and daughter in the back of the car was really incredible and almost like a real life experience. This was a verry detailed dream,...
