Brain Science: How can you control your dreams?

•2010/07/29 • Comments Off on Brain Science: How can you control your dreams?

The ability to manipulate our dream worlds goes beyond the science fiction plot of the movie Inception. A dream expert from Harvard University explains how it works

Some dreams feel so revelatory—if only returning to sleep would take us back there. It turns out, however, that our ability to shape our dreams is better than mere chance. In the blockbuster movie Inception, Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his compatriots use drugs and psychological profiles to trigger specific dreams in people. Although the heavy sedation and level of detail incited are far-fetched, dream control isn’t entirely a Hollywood fantasy.

Techniques to control, or at least influence, our dreams have been shown to work in sleep experiments. We can strategize to dream about a particular subject, solve a problem or end a recurring nightmare. With practice we can also increase our chances of having a lucid dream, the sort of “dream within a dream” that Inception‘s characters regularly slip into.

The ability to influence other people’s sleep worlds is still crude. But emerging technologies raise the prospect that, at the very least, we’ll get an idea of what others are dreaming about in real time.

We asked Deirdre Barrett, author of the book The Committee of Sleep: How Artists, Scientists and Athletes Use Dreams for Creative Problem-Solving—and How You Can, Too (Crown, 2001) and assistant clinical professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School, about what dream-control strategies do and don’t work—and why.

Mindset
You are not going to just walk up to someone and submit the AI with full energy right off the bat.

Stat Info on Importance of Draining Stamina
(This may not be exactly accurate, but it has a lot of bearing through playable testing and is also very important for mindset when attempting a sub. Keep it mind it effects you as well. We are talking Stamina, not energy. Stamina is your overall points. energy is the temporary bar that moves up and down.)

Example:
100% Stamina = 100% Submission Defense
80% Stamina = 80% Submission Defense

So an opponent with 90 Sub Defense that has 80% stamina = 72 Sub Defense
This does not mean that just because your stats are higher, you are going to instant sub. You still need to pull off the below techniques.

Terms
1. PONR (point of no return) Submission success. Or my term to describe the last bit of animation that doesn’t matter whether your shining or charging because the submission is locked in.
2. YATL (you’re already to late) Submission failure. Or my term to describe the last bit of animation that doesn’t matter how well your doing, because the opponent is already out of the submission.

3. Stamina = The Yellow bar on the stamina meter. Stamina literally is the # of stamina your fighter has. The stamina bar displays this as a percentage. Ex: at the begining of the fight a full bar of stamina is 100% of 85 stamina (or whatever your specifc fighter has).
4. Energy = The moveable color changing bar on top of the Stamina. This determines how long you can attempt a submission. If you run out of it before finishing the sub, you will fail. On the defensive side, if you run out, your defensive shines become “nearly” ineffective.
