This is an account of lucid dream I had recently.
It was late evening and I was leaving a friend's house to go home. I had the feeling that I had left some sort of party. I found it strange that I
couldn't remember any details, who was there or what the supposed party was for, especially having just exited the house.
As I was fumbling to press my car's central locking remote whilst holding a number of other things in my hands, a car pulled up blocking my exit from
the driveway. They were guests to the party. I was annoyed because I was about to leave, but rather than ask them to move their car, I decided to go
back into the party with them. (At least I could find out what this party I supposedly just left, was for, I thought to myself).
Apon entering I recognised familiar faces including a friend of mine and his young son. I thought the occasion must be the child's birthday.
I then made mention to this friend, of my strange lack of memory apon leaving the house a few minutes before. I suspected it could be a dream.
Within seconds, I noticed an exact double of the person I was talking to, sitting on the other side of the room. After the initial surprise I was
fully alerted to the fact that I was dreaming and just a little annoyed at being temporarily fooled by this illusion.
Ordinarily, apon becoming lucid in a dream, I would attempt to leave the immediate dream surroundings and attempt to fly or do something I can't do
in the physical waking state. However, this time was different. I chose to stay where I was and attempt to show those around me that they were
playing a part in a dream.
I addressed both versions of my friend, alternately facing each as I tried to
use their apparent sudden physical duality as evidence of a dream. Both versions had no answer. As I held my gaze at the second version, he slowly
disappeared before my eyes. I then turned my attention to the original. I tested him by asking him if he could recall his own home address. He found
himself confused and unable to answer.
Suddenly I realised every one in the room including the 'birthday boy' had disappeared except for one other. I then asked my friend to explain this
sudden mass dissappearance. Again he was without answer.
Turning to the only other remaining person in the room, I asked if she could recall her home address. She couldn't answer. I then asked her what her
father looked like. All she could offer as a reply is, "he likes talking".
She was confused at her lack of memory and appeared unsettled. I noticed a tear fall from her eye.
Then the scene seamlessly faded and I was awake in bed.
I felt there was a sort of 'Truman Show' quality to the dream.
Has anyone else tried to 'wake others up' to the dream, from within a lucid dream?
