Onierogen
Lucid Dream Capsule

An oneirogen, from the Greek ὄνειρος óneiros meaning "dream" and gen "to create", is a substance or other stimulus which produces or enhances dreamlike states of consciousness. This is characterized by an immersive dream state similar to REM sleep, which can range from realistic to alien or abstract.

We have forgotten the age-old fact that God speaks chiefly through dreams and visions.

-Carl Jung

     Since I could remember, dreams have always played a big part in my unfoldment. The very first dream I can remember that spark my interest into the realm of the subconscious happen when I was a child. I was at a dinner table with a bunch of monsters laughing and having the time of my life. then the monster at the other end of the table asked me, "what's your name?" After I told him my name he laughs saying no its not, I respond, " Uh huh, that is my name! I must be dreaming!" The entire scene froze and the monsters looked as if I said the forbidden phrase. they pounced on me and i woke up.

     Ever since then, sleep became not only my escape into the world of fantasy, but also into the realm of the hidden. As I grew in age, my escape turned into a more research, psychological and philosophical, and spiritual approach. Asking questions such as, "What happens if I die in a dream?" "What happens if I do this?" "What does that image mean?" "Did  really travel to this place?" and so on and so on. But of course over the years it became an on and off practice eventually become a fully spiritual pursuit. Searching the depths of the self so that i may find the keys for my soul's evolution. Which would lead to 90% of my spiritual experiences and epiphanies.

     On that journey I would experiment would different kinds of plants to induce that dream state every chance I got. Such herbs are called "oneirogen." Allowing the user to seamlessly reproduce the necessary conditions for them to not only awaken within the dream, but to receive clearly those divine messages that only comes through while we are in that state of "sleep" or deep meditation. 

The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul.

-Carl Jung

   The goal of this project is to create a capsule that'll assist the individual in inducing the lucid dream state easier as well as assist in maintaining memory of what they've experienced. Of course the wont be a miracle pill and will need to be coupled with other practices to really solidify the dream. And as a person becomes a seasoned dreamer, they'll be able to explore depths of not only their consciousness, but that of the collective. 

     As I begin to craft a well rounded product, my hope is to have alongside it, practices, meditations, and more to truly facilitate a boundless experience. 

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.
