Agreed! When I lucid dream it's random many times and sometimes I can go from a magical world full of wonders to be pursued to be killed.
Originally posted by sstarkWhen I remember the dreams that I have, I am fully aware and in control when dreaming. I'm me, and you're you, and the world is normal. I am aware that my mind has made up a play for me, with an antagonist and a plot line... but sometimes it lacks in a conclusion, and I just wake up with full memory of the events.[edit on 23-4-2010 by sstark]

It is possible to be in control of your dreams without being lucid. Lucid dreaming is just being aware that what you are experiencing a dream. Most researchers that look into lucid dreaming immediately discard any dream that doesn't begin with that "Holy crap I'm dreaming!!!" moment. If you're truly lucid, you can ignore the plot and dream characters (ignore them into oblivion actually, since everything requires your attention to exist), and then get on with what you really want to do. In fact, getting caught up in the plot is what kills lucidity for most people.

I like it, and will it on to continue the plot.
I guess it does lose the appeal somewhat at that point, because I know it's not real, however I do enjoy the experience and the people in them. I rarely have a negative dream.
I guess what I am trying to say is that what I want to do when dreaming is to continue dreaming, as normal, while being aware that I am dreaming, so I have no need to go off and do something else.

In one or two dreams, I felt like I was connected with the entire cosmos and every atom in the universe. Now that was a very weird sensation.

Does a Lucid Dream really "feel" like "physical reality"?
Any techniques to get lucid dreaming?
