Well Steve-O, I haven't gotten the lucid dreams On-Command down pat yet, but I get more than my share of them. They are sooo cool to experience. I usually remember my dreams in good detail. I posted one in another thread earlier that I dreamed of the Columbia shuttle disaster. ( I think you responded to that one) I still remember that dream from beginning to end. The colors, the anxiety, the fear. I watched it fly over head while I was bartending at the restaurant I worked at ( a bit slow for a ship that's supposed to be coming in on approach). For some reason the building I was in had no roof so I could see the night sky. It looked more like the jet from the movie Firefox but was white with the black bottom along with the American flag on the tail fin. Anyway, it was trying to land at our small airport and it turned upside down and crashed into the ground.
While lucid dreaming, you are able to manipulate things in your dream as though you are awake. Create things. Stuff like that. You can basically do whatever you want without repercussions, except, when an event is happening in your dream that's actually causing a reaction in the physical world. For instance, to make a long dream short, once I had to jump in a pond to avoid small tornadoes buzzing around me. I was under water looking up at the surface. I was running out of breath. Just as I reached the surface for air, I actually woke up gasping for air. Some would probably call that sleep apnea or something similar. Except it doesn't happen often like that. Dreams can sometimes cause your physical body to react to what's happening in your dream or your physical body state causes what you dream about (like maybe I stopped breathing in my sleep, so I dreamed I was suffocating under water), however you look at it.

Wow.. now this has really got me interested. I have never read about Lucid dreams before, I have had them but never really analyzed them.
Its almost like what you are saying is that your in another dimension, or maybe that is just the way I am taking it. But never the less its very interesting and something I am going to give alot of thought too.
Great Thread OP

i remember waking so scared i cant put into words. i thought that there were two people standing at my front door(i feel asleep on the couch). i am a bit parinoid so i sleep with a Glock model 21 .45 cal under my pillow and cant sleep without it. i tried to reach for it and couldnt move. i dont even think i was breathing for that matter. i then realized that my dog was asleep on the floor next to me and had not bothered to move. i think thats when i realized what had happened. i took some time for me to go back to sleep. it was one of the worst experinces of my life and im glad to say it hasent happened since...
A government funded project looks into using psychics to enter people's dreams, with some mechanical help. When a subject dies in his sleep from a heart attack Alex Gardner becomes suspicious that another of the psychics is killing people in the dreams somehow and that is causing them to die in real life. He must find a way to stop the abuse of the power to enter dreams. Written by Zaphod [firstname.lastname@example.org]

I can dream in a lucid state if I fall asleep consciously thinking about doing so. Almost in a state of meditation... I don't think it's another reality, I believe it's consciously influencing your dreams. Easy as that.
