That is very interesting and i to wonder about that? I am going to try and consciously remember a memory from my day and experience the feelings I have well lucid dreaming. I have been a lucid dreamer most of my life, and the freedom I have in this state is to me an actual responsibility. I do very much wake up many times believing this state is a very real part of my existence. The experiences I have sometimes I have definitely not experienced before in my life yet the experiences I have researched from my dreams scientifically make sense. I have many theories and this is a very good question?

I believe that I've had lucid dreams at times. I also know that I've had dreams where I'm involved in any situation that can be imagined. So I must legitimate wonder, ego about it aside, whether a seemingly lucid dream is nothing more than an ordinary dream that sticks in my memory because it is rather more unique than most.
I can't say that I've spent any time pondering the issue, but I don't know of any way to prove that a lucid dream is anything different than a normal dream. From another angle, how is so-called lucid dreaming any different than "day dreaming" where you imagine being actively aware? (I assume that is a common phenomena for most folk beside myself.)
