Code In My Dreams?


#1

I recently got into coding, and I’m loving it, I’m pretty sure it found me. I’ve been playing this game for about 3 days and the past two nights I’ve had dreams of code running through my mind, It’s hard to explain, just lines of code, numbers, don’t remember the exact details of each, but waking from the dreams I find myself thinking of code, has anyone else had this experience?

Once but I was making a game with my friends soooooooooooo yeah

Happens to me all the time. That’s where most of my level ideas come from. :slight_smile:


#4

I understand the feel :grin:

Visual images play heavily on what your mind processes. I’ve noticed that if I play a lot of video games, my mind will start thinking about video game things, even during sleep. Whatever I put through my mind, on a constant and consistent basis, will output in my reality… in various forms :slight_smile:

Yup. This is a real thing called the Tetris Effect.

Thanks for the link Nick, didn’t know this was an actual thing.

So on that note, everyone…

Be aware of what you’re feeding your mind :wink: Because the Tetris Effect will come into play with whatever is repeatedly shown to your eyes, ears, and mind :slight_smile: (And other senses)
