I couldn't pretend to dream most of my dreams on my best day either.
Isn't that the whole point?
When you have those experiences you do not "pretend" them yourself right, they just happen to you, just like dreams ''just happen".
Dreams, just like hypnagogic imagery, are things you do not ''actively'' make up, just like one is daydreaming and then suddenly feels like
gravity shifted 90 degrees, causing the person to fall out of his chair.
I can ensure you that that person did not ''actively'' think about gravity shifting like that and pulling him out of his chair.
Unless they were lucid of course, in which case there is the possibility of them trying to create that effect on purpose.
Also that post of the person being able to see with his eyes closed is perfectly logical, considering hypnagogic imagery is projected through your
mind, not through reality itself.
People trying to get WILD's (wake induced lucid dreams) usually experience this and the general ''thought'' is to let those images and voices
just wander rather than focusing on them, to successfully enter a lucid dream without losing consciousness.
For more information on dreaming / hypnagogic imagery or supernatural stuff like ''shared dreaming'' , out of body experiences etc, you can go
to the dreamviews forums where they discuss about everything related to these subjects.
On a sidenote, I had a false awakening today. Basically it's ''dreaming'' that you wake up, without waking up. Everything seems to be real except
that weird stuff can happen to ruin the reality. (Eg. in my case I woke up, tried to find some underpants to put on and they were all covered in
''skidmarks'' if you know what I mean, lol. That made me think something wasn't right.
